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.
Fantastic hotel and stunning location
We had a great stay! I highly recommend staying the night at the distillery to enjoy the island. The staff was very friendly and our room was very comfortable. Plus the distillery tour was very informational about the whiskey and history of the island.
Amazing little lodging that is part of a distillery. The room was really nice and cozy and the staff was amazing. I highly recommend this place is you are needing an inexpensive, laid-back location for trips to the Isle of Skye and the associated areas.
We had a lovely stay at the distillery. Lovely room, complementary whiskey in room which was nice. Good bar. Guest lounge lovely. Restaurant & set meal was outstanding, that is a great chef there, food was exceptional. Breakfasts gorgeous. Staff were great, Kat was lovely & informative. We’re going back someday.
Everyone we have met was very friendly and passionate about their distillery!
Brilliant in every way! From walking in the door to a drink in the bar, then early check in, gorgeous view from room, honesty bar to delicious breakfast in morning- just one of my favourite places ever I’ve stayed!
This unique location is romantic and beautiful. From the Distillery Inn at historic Borodale House, the views of the Isle of Skye are constantly changing as clouds shift, concealing and revealing the mountains across the narrow waterway. The small staff is devoted and dedicated to their guests, especially Chloe and Ethan. Breakfasts and dinners were delicious, thanks to Chef Chris. For variety, the Raasay House Restaurant is less than 10 minutes away by foot (look for the native hares on the grounds; we saw 5 one night). The Isle of Raasay distillery tour includes tastings of the exceptional whiskey and excellent gin. Jo was a perfect guide for novices and experienced drinkers alike. Our 4-day stay was perfect! Highly recommended.
Raasay Distillery is not just an island retreat to stay, but a complete experience!
We enjoyed our stay from the first second to the last! Much love to detail went into the hotel! It was amazing! Breakfast with a view! Honesty bar with a view! Lovely staff and beautiful and clean rooms!
