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.
Raasay Distillery is not just an island retreat to stay, but a complete experience!
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!
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!
What a beautiful spot. We stayed for one night and had the most comfortable, clean, stylish and luxurious room. The staff before and during our stay couldn’t have been more helpful. The Distillery is very modern and stylish and beautifully appointed. A lovely snug with very well appointed honesty bar allowed glorious views in the evening. A special highlight was walking into breakfast and seeing snow on the mountains outside through the picture windows- just beautiful. Breakfast was lovely. We had to dine at the next door Raasay House as there are no meals there than breakfast served but this was also delightful and easily walkable. Do not be put off by the ferry access – it is really easy and very friendly and regular. We didn’t visit the actual distillery on this occasion but plan to return and stay longer. Thank-you
I can thoroughly recommend staying here to anyone. The service, attention to detail, interior design ,food and friendliness of staff was exemplary. I cannot thank everyone enough for a truly fantastic stay. We will be back.
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!
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.
Great stay, probably the only one of its kind.
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.
