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.
Comfort, views and whisky all make a great stay! Great facilities, beautiful views, superb breakfast. Love the honesty bar.
Stayed one night at the distillery in late July on the way up to Lewis. A very warm and genuine welcome, and a very comfortable room with a wonderful view across to Skye and The Cuillins. Perfectly peaceful and an enjoyable continental breakfast in the morning. I’ll definitely be back, hopefully for a longer stay.
Raasay Distillery and surrounding buildings have been very tastefully decorated inside and out. We enjoyed our tour of the distillery, the young lady was very friendly and knowledgeable. Our en-suite bedroom while small was clean and had all amenities and our bed was comfy. The public rooms downstairs were very pleasant to sit in with floor to ceiling windows which offered stunning views across to Skye, the continental style breakfast was very tasty with a good choice of high quality products. Raasay House is less than a five minute walk from the distillery and has a good restaurant, so if you do the distillery tour and have your whisky tastings you don’t have to worry about drinking and driving! If you like walking Dun Caan is a good walk on the island with beautiful views to Skye on one side and the mainland on the other and the possibility of seeing sea or golden eagles (we saw a golden eagle). There is a frequent ferry service from Skye to Raasay so if you are touring on Skye an overnight stay at the Raasay Distillery would be a worthwhile addition.
We had a great time staying at the distillery. Facilities were brand new and modern. Breakfast included was good. Staff were extremely helpful. Rooms were very clean and modern. The views are amazing!
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.
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.
Beautifully renovated historic house with whisky distillery on site. Relaxing atmosphere (if it rained 24/7 I would happily curl up in a comfy chair with a book and a dram) and helpful friendly staff. Loved Raasay for it’s quiet, it’s scenery, it’s history and it’s people. Whiskeys pretty tasty too!
Lovely relaxing weekend very memorable. Fantastic spot to stop at. Superb friendly staff. Very well appointed. Bedding and towels crisp and new. Lounge area has a great little bar and selection of books if weather poor. View from the breakfast area is to die for.
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 stayed at the Rassay distillery Hotel during the Easter weekend and were treated to a wonderful experience. The accommodation was superb,with a very comfortable residents lounge that includes the most amazing view over to Skye and the Cuillin mountain range. The honesty bar is reasonably priced and well stocked.Watching the sun set over Skye through the huge panoramic window with a dram in hand(naturally!),will live long in the memory. Staff we’re very friendly and helpful, as well as knowledgeable about the whisky industry and the island. Will definitely be back!!
