Our History

Completed in 2013, Redwood House Hotel was built by its owner and founder Chris Watkiss. Over the last several years the property has undergone continuous development to meet the growing demand for good quality accommodation on the Isle of Skye, this saw the addition of six new rooms being constructed. Chris believes that a successful business should continue to develop as there is always room for improvement and growth. In 2020 Chris made the decision to pass his business onto his daughter, giving the now established hotel an opportunity to flourish.

Our Future

Located on the waterfront of Loch Greshornish ( Isle of Skye, Scotland), this beautiful setting provides the perfect place to spot sea life such as Seals, Otters and Birds. We look forward to partnering with SeaSkye Tours in 2020, who will be able to provide our guests with tours around the Island straight from our doorstep (subject to availability and charges).

During the Covid-19 pandemic, our time has been used to refurbish many of the guest rooms with a bright and fresh modern feel; the public areas have undergone a wee spruce to show off the hotel's character; and we have created a take-away point for both residents and non-residents to order and collect meals in a covid-safe manner. We have put inplace additional adaptations to reassure visitors that they can enjoy a safe stay with us, but also to meet government guidelines and be sure we are 'Good to Go'.

Sustainability

We continue to look at ways we can provide a more sustainable stay for our guests. Recently we have been working on reducing the use of unnecessary plastics.

Our water comes directly from a private well and is filtered to an ideal pH (as confirmed by annual Environmental Health water tests), making it excellent drinking quality. As a result of this positive feedback, we no longer provide plastic cups or bottles of water in our rooms. Guests will be provided with glasses on the drinks tray to help themselves to the finest quality tap water.

Single use/plastic wrapped toiletries have now been removed from guest bathrooms and replaced with more enviromentally friendly dispensers. 

(If you have any suggestions on how we can improve our sustainability practice, please don't hesitate to let us know via the contact form.)
