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 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.
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.
I’m a whisky lover so when I saw the chance to stay at a distillery I had to do it. A fabulous experience from start to finish. I was greeted and checked in by Jennifer who was cheery and gave me a good welcome. I had a quick look round the facilities and must say I was very impressed, the décor is terrific and the views are to die for. My room was brilliant with magnificent views over to the Cuillin mountains and Skye. The room was tastefully decorated and I loved the rocking chair. I had dinner at the nearby Raasay House and the distillery will book your reservation for you. I had a great nights sleep as the bed was extremely comfortable. Did a bit of exploring round the island before heading back for a distillery tour taken by the lovely Christa who gave an informative and interesting tour including a nice wee tasting of some whisky. Another great sleep ensued and up for the continental buffet breakfast which is excellent and views are amazing from the breakfast room. Chloe was nice and smiley and made sure everything ran smoothly at breakfast. Thanks to Lexy for organising everything. It’s a great team up there and I thank all the girls and guys for making it a great experience which I will certainly do again. Here’s looking forward to the distillery whisky.
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
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!
Very welcoming and helpful staff, very clean facility.
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!
Great location and facility for a quiet couple on nights away from all the hassle of the mainland with plenty of walks to do on Raasay (Forestry Commission). Beautifully renovated building with 6 bedrooms and a guest lounge plus breakfast room with stunning views of Skye. Breakfast was very good and evening meals in the Raasay House Hotel 200 yards down the road all works very well. Distillery tour also very good as is the tasting afterwards. Just book it and do it. Everyone on Raasay was very welcoming and helpful.
Comfort, views and whisky all make a great stay! Great facilities, beautiful views, superb breakfast. Love the honesty bar.
We stayed for two nights because Skye was full. Turned out to be wonderful and fun to stay at a distillery. Our room was comfortable but a little small. It is a very new hotel so they are still working on some of the details. The building is beautiful and so are the rooms. Including one drink of their ‘While We Wait’ whisky was a treat! They were friendly and very helpful. They wanted to make sure we had everything we needed. It is worth the trip and Raasay is a great place to visit.
