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.
Beautiful location and establishment Great amenities. Extremely attentive and friendly staff. The included whiskey tour was exceptional. Wish we had stayed more than 1 night.
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.
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!
Great stay, probably the only one of its kind.
Great location with just a short ferry ride from Skye. Superbly designed distillery and hotel with wonderful scenery and great walks. Best whisky tour especially with the upgrade to chocolates! Very sociable bar and comfortable outside seating. Restaurant is definitely worth a visit with fresh and extremely well prepared range of local produce. Breakfast with views to Skye are the best way to start the day.
Staying at the Isle of Raasay Distillery was pure bliss! If you love peace and quiet, friendly people and beautiful surroundings, this is the place for you!
Please take time out of your Skye visit to stay overnight at the Raasay Distillery accommodation because it is fantastic. We stayed in sept 2022, in room 1 , with views all the way to the Cuillins. We had exceptional comfort as the room was appointed to a high standard with “oh so soft” melt into bed after a fabulous whisky, Gin and chocolate tasting. We used the bar area for a post tour drink before an absolutely delicious meal in the distillery restaurant . Then we relaxed in the private accommodation lounge with views watching the ferry between the island and Skye, and the sun lighting up the magnificent Cuillins before retiring to our room. A complimentary half bottle of Raasay whiskey was in our room and we sank into a very sound sleep . Hastened, I must add, by a 21 mile cycle in the morning of the same day to Callum’s road….please don’t miss visiting this as the views, once again are exceptional. Our personal thanks go to Chloe on reception and shop, Steve on the tour , who was so interesting on the history of the distillery , and the lovely lady on the bar (who’s name apologetically I forget , maybe due to Gin and whisky consumption) …we would highly recommend an overnight experience after the tasting as you do not want the ambience and splendid comfort that all the staff go out of their way to provide, to pass you by. Many thanks also to Ethan serving our meal and the lovely lady serving us breakfast next morning. Slainte Mhath!
Absolutely spectacular. The distillery tour was good, if you have done one before it will be as expected, a quick in depth look into their production. The tasting was great, the hostess did an amazing job explaining the distillery and its history. I highly recommend renting a room and staying the night. The dinner was exquisite. The chef loves what he does and the venison and lobster were perfection.
Raasay Distillery is not just an island retreat to stay, but a complete experience!
