We had a short stay at the Torridon recently with our dog and we were a bit surprised at the 'leave your dog at home' review. The Torridon is all that others have said in regard to its superb location; a first class hotel where attention to detail is everything; attentive and friendly staff; and of course, top class dining.
We have the best behaved dog in the country. Keira is a Kerry Blue who does not cast her hair, is very obedient, is people and child friendly and, most of all, is pretty with it!! However, much as we love our dog we recognise that not everyone feels the same way and there is the real problem that some people are allergic to dogs and cats. We found the cottage ideal accomodation with a separate lounge, large bathroom and big comfortable bed and plenty of room for the dog to wander. The entrance hall has doors at both sides and a good floor covering that meant the dog could be properly cleaned and dried before circulating in the living areas. Admittedly we did not have a loch view but we were happy to sit in the lounge of the hotel before and after dinner and enjoy all the facilities of the main accomodation knowing that Keira was not locked up in a small bedroom. We could exercise the dog in the beautiful grounds at any time and we were rather pleased to have some of the staff make a fuss of her and tell us that they remembered her from a previous visit.
All in all the Torridon lives up to its very high reputation and my advice would be, if you have a dog you will be well looked after in very comfortable accommodation with excellent facilities and superb dining.

Room Tip: The cottage is separate from but immediately adjacent to the main hotel with its own parking space

Jane and I visited the Torridon Hotel early in 2011 when we were looking for a wedding venue. We stayed for one night and had dinner, and that was enough to convince us that this was the place we wanted to get married. The settling, the staff, the venue, the luxury rooms and the food all helped convince us that the Torridon Hotel fitted the bill. On returning home we enquired about having the wedding in Torridon and managed to secure a weekend in September 2011. We hired the hotel for the weekend and some extra rooms in the inn.
As you can imagine arranging a wedding from a distance can be tricky, however, we were delighted by the assistance Colleen and her staff gave us (ensuring that there was as little hassle and stress as possible).
From the moment we arrived Colleen, Robert and their staff (especially Tom in the Whisky Bar) were brilliant and treated family, friends and ourselves like VIPs. They were flexible to all our requirements (Singstar karaoke, child minder, Chinese lanterns and all) and really helped make the weekend a success.
The outdoor activities were also varied and a great success, and many thanks to Chris for looking after us at the clay pigeon shooting.
With regards to the hotel (or "The House" to the staff), it has 19 rooms of luxury standard, all decorated in their own fashion. The communal hall, dining room, lounge, library and whisky bar are all set out in a traditional Highland style that fits the location perfectly. The lounge was the setting for our ceremony and the staff helped make it look amazing, perfect for our unforgettable day. The Whisky bar has over 300 Whiskys and the guests & I tried to get through most of them by the time we left.
Bruno (the chef) produced top quality meals on the Friday and Saturday, and our wedding guests still talk about them now, especially as Bruno was flexible enough to draw up and provide menus for the veggie and vegan's amongst us. The meat eaters also had a typical Highland feast and returned home more than happy. The breakfasts, welcome tea and pre-wedding brunch were also top notch.
Overall, it was an unforgettable weekend and the Torridon will always be a special place for Jane & I. If you are in that neck of the woods, you would be silly not to spend at least one night there!

Room Tip: Rooms with a view of the loch are a must.

I chose this hotel because I wanted to propose to my girlfriend in Wester Ross. The countryside is breathtaking but the hotel and staff at the Torridon made the whole experience unforgetable. From the moment we pulled up in the grounds of the hotel and stepped into the amazing entrance hall, we were made to feel right at home. I had been in contact with the hotel in advance to see if they could help make our stay even better and boy did they deliver. Upgraded room on arrival with stunning loch views, complimentary tea and cakes in the lounge, archery in the grounds and a wonderfully thoughtful personalised menu with "The Future Mrs Roesen" typed out at the top.

Our room was modern and contemporary with one of the biggest beds i've ever slept in and a gorgeous freestanding bath overlooking Upper Loch Torridon.

The staff were so lovely and had even recommended a good spot to pop the question (a viewpoint towards Lower Diabaig overlooking Loch Diabaigas Airde as the sun was setting). We then had an amazing dinner in the hotel - £50 a head was superb value considering the quality of the food. We also ate in the Torridon Inn next door which was equally lovely for a traveller looking for a more informal dining experience. The breakfast was equally superb with a wonderful selection of treats, prepared to the same exquisite standard as the dinner the night before.

The Torridon Hotel claims to provide 'luxury with a personal touch'. They deliver on this promise with breathtaking accuracy. I would not hesitate in returning to this fabulous place. Thank you to everyone at the Torridon Hotel!

If you are not planning on taking a dog to The Torridon then ignore this review as you will have a great time at a friendly hotel in a fantastic location with great food.
I am sure you will give it 5*.
Our problem is that although The Torridon says it is "dog friendly" the sole "dog room" (which is called "The Cottage") and the very restricted access for our dog spoilt our experience.
Before we booked I asked about The Cottage and was assured it was of the same standard as the rest of the hotel-I think not.
Smell of disinfectant greeted us (so we knew we had arrived in the dog room) confirmed by the view of the car park and someone washing their car outside our window!
Small bedroom with a seperate sitting room (adequate),bathroom was drab and windowless with a very nosiy fan.
We also had a major bath issue (ie a flood caused by a badly connected waste pipe) which was dealt with very quickly but the bedroom carpet remained wet as a result despite the best efforts of the Hotel.We should have been offered an alternative room-the Hotel was not busy-but of course we had a dog with us....
Great Dinner,and friendly well informed staff cheered us up a bit but where to go after Dinner? Could we sit in the entrance hallway (nice seats by the fire) or any of the public rooms and have a digestif with our well behaved dog? No.
I suggested to The Torridon that they either offer more rooms to dog owners and allow access to a public room or forget allowing dogs completely.
It will be interesting to see what they do!

Room Tip: Make sure you stay in the main house with a Loch view!

Firstly I would like to apologise that you did not fully enjoy your stay and that you found our policy on dogs to negatively affect your time at The Torridon as well as apologising for the flood in your bathroom.

I am also sorry that you were not offered an upgrade to another room with the option to leave your dog in the car or the cottage.

Many of our guests enjoy the cottage and often return to enjoy a stay with their dog whilst accepting that there are limitations on their entry to the house. The reason that we do not allow dogs in the main house is both as a consideration for other guests who may have allergies or not enjoy the company of dogs. As ever, our challenge as hoteliers is to strive to ensure that every one of our guests is well looked after and their expectations exceeded, however as I’m sure you would understand, we can’t offer everything to everybody and as the majority of our guests don’t have dogs we feel we have to sway our ‘rules’ in their favour. That said, we do allow guests to bring their dogs into the bar of the Torridon Inn.

Ultimately in response to your interest about what we will do, we will continue to sell the cottage as our ‘dog’ room, and continue to make people aware that dogs are not allowed in the main house but are very welcome to exercise throughout the estate and enjoy the freedom this offers.

Kind Regards,

Dan & Rohaise Rose-Bristow

We stayed here as part of our honeymoon in the Highlands and it was perfect. The room was fantastic with beautiful views. The service was remarkable - friendly and welcoming, it set the tone for the whole stay. The complimentary outdoor activities were a real bonus and we were able to do some loch kayaking, archery and a guided walk. Finally, the food was beautifully cooked and really tasty.
