The Three Chimneys and The House Over-By, on the Isle of Skye, has been crowned one of the best ‘Restaurants-with-Rooms’ in the country at the Good Hotel Guide Editor’s Choice 2019 awards.
The Good Hotel Guide said, “Long-standing owners Shirley and Eddie Spear are welcoming hosts at their loch- side island retreat. Suites are generously equipped. Chef Scott Davies uses excellent local produce in his highly creative cooking.”
Shirley Spear, Owner at The Three Chimneys, added, “May Day 2019, will be our 20th anniversary of opening The House Over-By beside The Three Chimneys Restaurant in Skye. It goes without saying that Eddie and I are delighted to learn we have been voted Editor’s Choice “Restaurant with Rooms” in this year’s independent Good Hotel Guide.
“In that first year, we were awarded 5 stars by VisitScotland and were inspected by many professionals. We made such a nervous start with our six beautiful bedroom suites, wondering if anyone would ever book to come and stay with us. Little did we know how popular our accommodation would become, thanks to our wonderful guests and our fantastic staff, over all the years.”
The Good Hotel Guide Editor’s Choice 2019 award is the latest achievement in a successful 12 months for The Three Chimneys. Having retained 3 AA Rosettes continuously for the past 19 years, The Three Chimneys was awarded the title of UK Restaurant of the Year in the Editor’s Awards within the Waitrose Good Food Guide 2018, AA Service Award for the UK in 2018, and has retained its place in the UK’s top 50 in the new, 2019 guide.
The Three Chimneys went on to win the Restaurant of the Year title at this year’s CIS Excellence Awards, while Head Sommelier, Charlotte Davies, reached the finals of the prestigious Gold Service Scholarship 2018.
