Reviewed 10 July 2012

On a driving holiday with three friends, we stayed in the wonderful Loch Torridon Hotel, right on the Loch, beneath the ever-changing colours and atmosphere of the mountain above it. The hotel has a huge living room overlooking the mountain and the Loch, where you can enjoy the huge fire, and have a stunning afternoon tea after a day of sightseeing on the extraordinary North West Coast of Scotland. We had driven from Achiltibuie north of Ullapool, had visited the lovely Inverewe Gardens and driven along Loch Maree - one of the great drives on the North West Coast. We were welcomed warmly and had drinks in front of the fire, before the very sophisticated and beautifully presented dinner. Perfect food in a wonderful setting.
The rooms had every comfort - my room overlooked the small stream and the cottage garden, but one of my friends had a Loch View room - spacious with charming views.
This hotel is expensive, but worth it for the hospitality, food, isolation and great comfort and its spectacular setting. We only had one night, but I would recommend spending three nights there as there is so much to do.

Room Tip: All the rooms we had were comfortable and charming, with every facility in the bathrooms. However...

Thank you for your review. We try so hard to match the splendour of our setting and scenery with the service that you receive inside our home. Luxury does come at a price and we appreciate that you think we are value for money. Please come and stay again and next time for three days! Regards, Dan & Rohaise

i have never stayed at the hotel but have had high teas and dinners there so my comments refer to that side only.

The situation and views from the restuarant and lounge are marvellous. Inside the decor is glorious, everything from the log fires in winter and the decoration of the lounge and restuarant.

Service is faultless and there is a lovely atmoshere about the place. Afternoon tea is a meal in itself and very traditional with proper tableclothes and sandwiches. Dinners are faultless with food and its presentation excellent. Value for money? It is expensive but it is a wonderfull experience.

We had a 4 day visit to the Torridon to unwind and relax. Dogs and baby in tow. No dogs in the hotel and the cottage where they would be permitted was booked, so they worked round the problem and allowed us to drive the car around the front of the hotel - on the graveled path in front of the sitting room, bar and library - to the fire escape outside our room. Perfect and the dogs were more than happy.

Room was stunning - Suite 1887, the newest of the lot apparently and highly recommended - and views were great, if not as stunning as a room on the front of the property.

Food and service top notch.

extremely friendly hotel. Staff went out of their way to help and accomodate our difficult wishes after our luggage got lost in Gatwick Airport. Very patient and helpful. Room fantastic, beautiful view of Loch Torridon, everything brand new as just redecorated.
Food from Chef was delicious and lovingly prepared. Enjoyed the 5 course dinner very much after tough walking up Ben Alligin. Delightful advice in the bar about the whisky - 350 different malts ! Atmosphere of the hotel lovely, warm, welcoming with a touch of luxury - just what you need in this tough environment.
Can't wait to go back. Absolutely value for money and excellent!

Room Tip: ask to have a view to the Loch.

I have recently returned from a one night stay at The Torridon with my partner.
So many things make this hotel extra special. The dramatic mountainous setting and sea loch that change colour depending on the light conditions really do add to the actual charm of the hotel itself. As soon as you arrive you are made to feel very welcome. We were offered complimentary tea and coffee on arrival. We were then promptly shown our lovely room by the very attentive lady at the reception who, as with all the staff take a genuine pride in the service and quality the hotel provides.
Dinner was a wonderful experience. All 5 courses were incredible and the attentive yet unobtrusive service was delightful. The best bit was enjoying a post-dinner cognac in the drawing room, in a very comfortable chair next to a log fire, whilst looking out to the loch, unaware that I was about to have the best sleep ever in a very comfortable bed, before waking the next morning and enjoying a Scottish breakfast of pure indulgence. (Even opted for whiskey and cream in my porridge which I could get used to!)
We cannot wait to return to repeat the experience. (not just the whiskey and porridge!)
Thanks again for a magnicent stay and I am sure you will one day retain the Scottish Hotel of the Year Award that you deservedly won in 2011.
