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.
I came, saw and was conquered by the magical Isle of Raasay. Barbara was perfect host and both her and Calum gave me a potted history of the island. Fascinating! The coffee and tea on arrival and the welcoming vibe is paramount and the welcome leaves a wonderful afterglow that will linger always. The island has a magic that I could tap into and the hotel is an organic part of the land. For eg the stunning drawing room table made from indigenous elm bedecked with local tartan. Got as far as Calum’s Road and met a Mackenzie ( at ferry next day ) who remembers the older man hammering out that amazing achievement of road construction.
Great stay, probably the only one of its kind.
Fantastic view. Lounge with whisky bar was a great to relax and enjoy the view. Brand new. Personal touch. Warm and welcoming. Calm and relaxing. Sleeping in a micro distillery. Nice continental breakfast.
Raasay Distillery is not just an island retreat to stay, but a complete experience!
What an incredible, and incredibly special place.
Beautiful location, wonderful and enthusiastic staff, and a warm, stylish and modern hotel with the tantalising scent of whisky in the air. We loved every minute of our stay!
Our first visit to stay on the beautiful island of Raasay and we were fortunate enough to stay for two glorious nights at the distillery. It is in the fabulous setting just a short walk from the ferry terminal. Oozes luxury and our room was a double overlooking the sea and hills. Bed exceptionally comfy and linens silky smooth. Toiletries from Scottish fine soaps, flat screen tv in room but you don’t need tv with the ever changing scenery outside. Coffee maker and tea in room with lovely nibbles.
An amazing trip to raasay to visit the accommodation at the isle of raasay distillery From the moment we stepped off the ferry we were well looked after by Barbara and Calum. There are few distilleries you can actually stay at but Raasay is one. Make this something you do in 2018.
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!
We had an absolutely fantastic stay. From the moment you arrive it is clear the team here are absolutely passionate and proud of their Distillery it’s fantastic architecture, interiors and of course whisky! We had a tour by Patricia who was fantastic… so friendly and knowledgeable about the distillery, the distilling process and the Isle of Raasay. The rooms are beautifully designed and have a high end feel, our room also had a beautiful view. The residents lounge is a lovely place to relax too. Keep up the good work, I can’t wait to visit again!
