One of the most striking features you’ll notice when you visit us at Raasay Distillery is Borodale House, the beautifully restored Victorian-era villa that sits at the very heart of the distillery. Borodale House is home to one of our most unique features: our luxury en-suite bedrooms. We are the only distillery in Scotland that offers accommodation within the same building as our whisky making process.
Since opening our whisky hotel in February of this year we have welcomed over a thousand guests to stay with us to enjoy the exceptional views over to Skye, and of course, that unique experience of waking up inside a working distillery.
Following on from our recent Five Star award for our distillery visitor centre, we’re very pleased to announce that VisitScotland have presented us with another award, this time the prestigious Four Star Guest Accommodation accreditation for our luxury distillery accommodation.
This award demonstrates the commitment of our team, who, lead by Barbara Martin, Hospitality Supervisor, have worked tirelessly since the start of the year to transform what was a newly completed building into a luxurious, comfortable and relaxing place for our guests to stay. We’re incredibly thankful to Barbara and the team for their efforts in achieving this award for our whisky hotel.
As well as the 4 star award from VisitScotland, we have received many reviews and comments from guests who have stayed with us who regularly mention our friendly and efficient team, the relaxed and comfortable atmosphere, the peace and tranquility the island offers and of course the views over to the Isle of Skye.
Beautifully renovated accommodation manage by the most friendly and helpful staff you will find anywhere. Great base for walks around Raasay and a 2 night stay is worth considering with Calum’s Road walk on day 1 and Hallaig walk on day 2. Breakfast with outstanding views over to Skye and you simply head off for the ferry once you see it crossing over from Skye. Ferry for 2 adults and the car £20…very reasonable indeed. The distillery tour is as good as any and interestingly is given by a German lady who has taken up residence on Raasay with her partner.
Gorgeous view of Skye across the bay! The staff was incredibly helpful and welcoming, and the distillery’s dens become yours after 6pm. Make sure to explore Raasay’s coastline too while staying at the distillery…what a hidden gem!
Excellently renovated mansion House attached to a distillery with outstanding veiws across to Skye. Room set out perfectly. Bed very comfortable and rain shower, well you may find you spend far to much time under it. Coffee making machine also in room.
Beautiful view, stunning and intimate hotel with staff who were attentive!
Len and I have just spent 2 nights at the distillery and you can see what an amazing job the guys have done. From 5 star accommodation to Callum’s amazing tour to Barbara’s hospitality, everything was fantastic! Thanks to Alasdair and Sharon for a wonderful Saturday night?. We will definitely come back to enjoy it all once again. Thank you Raasay!
We stayed two nights at the Isle of Raasay Distillery and were completely charmed by the friendliness of the staff, the beauty of the locale, and the power of the local history. We much appreciated the upgrade of our room and the delightful distillery tour. Highly recommended. Calum was memorable in his erudition concerning local tradition, including his grandfather’s special history. Thanks to his enthusiasm we drove to the end of the island, on frightfully narrow roads, overlooking superb sea vistas, arriving at the ruins of Brochel Castle and the monument to the unforgettable Calum’s Road, one of the quietly most moving sites I’ve ever visited in traveling to many countries around the world. We will long cherish the memory of our visit to Raasay Island Distillery and hope to return again soon.
We had a great time staying at the distillery. Facilities were brand new and modern. Breakfast included was good. Staff were extremely helpful. Rooms were very clean and modern. The views are amazing!
Stayed at the Distillery for 2 nights, it’s a fantastic location, the staff are some of the friendliest folk you could hope to meet. The room itself was spotless, with a lovely bathroom, an excellent shower in a hotel, what a bonus. The view over to Skye is probably one of the best at any hotel I’ve stayed at, oh and the whisky is pretty good too.
Comfort, views and whisky all make a great stay! Great facilities, beautiful views, superb breakfast. Love the honesty bar.
It must be a whisky lovers dream to stay at a distillery – well dream no more make it happen. Only 5 minutes walk from the ferry and you will feel like you are on your own special island especially when the day trippers have left. The renovation of Borodale House is sympathetic to the building but provides luxury country accommodation with a modern touch. Rooms offer selection of teas, Nespresso machine and a bottle of the island water. The views over Skye were amazing from our room and we experienced all aspects of weather. There is a lovely lounge to chill out and browse through the vast selection of books, many covering the local area. Good selection of whiskies and gins to enjoy with your book or just admire the views. They operate an honesty bar at reasonable prices. The staff were very friendly and helpful. It is a continental breakfast with freshly baked croissants, cereals, fruit, yogurt, meats etc a bit of toast or bread would have been good. Many walking routes nearby but can’t wait to go back and explore the north of the island with the car.
Book your stay with us direct for the best rates and enjoy the unique experience of waking up in one of Scotland’s whisky distilleries for yourself.
