Can't wait to go back!

Posted Oct 18, 2016
Pros: Location, quality.
Cons: Horseback riding needs to be an added activity!
Location: Highlands hiking, kayaking, clay shooting, walking, Inverness (1h 10mins), Isle of Skye (2.5 hrs).
This hotel is a dream come true! I could have stayed there my entire vacation! Plan to spend at least two nights and join the hotel activities. The hotel is in the heart of Highlands. You can literally walk out the door and go hiking, biking, kayaking, clay shooting, walking etc. The hotel runs activity groups which are very private and intimate. The restaurant food is good but needs a reservation. Breakfast is also good but pricey unless you take advantage of it. Parking and wifi are free. Hotel room was so nice and comfortable. The inside of the hotel building is beautiful. The whiskey bar is huge. The hotel dog, cows and pigs are adorable and friendly. Definitely worth the splurge!

Expensive, but classy with some odd failings

Posted Sep 6, 2016
Pros: Its setting and its public rooms.
Cons: More relaxed service for dining and an a la carte menu. Better bedrooom lighting for the whole room and better bedside reading lights. Fewer cushions!
Location: This hotel is close to the very attractive west coast of the Highlands, so that walking or driving to see it is the best activity.
The hotel is an interesting building in a very pleasant setting. The staff were welcoming, if somewhat remote. Free tea or coffee on arrival is a small but welcoming policy. The food was very good. However, we felt that the dining room service was rather "over the top" with masses of waiters almost vying to serve us. The fact that you had to choose a menu of at least three courses was rather off-putting, so that we did not eat at the hotel on the second night. To avoid a large breakfast, we went to the Torridon Inn, which is in the hotel grounds. The contrast could hardly have been greater. We were reminded of Fawlty Towers: no one took any notice of us, so we went to get cereal, but there were no bowls. We waited a long time until two bowls were brought to us and we were warned that they were hot - for cold cereal! We asked for them to be put under cold water to cool them and this took an age also! Our room was relatively small and rather dimly lit, with flexible spotlights to read in bed, which are never successful. There were myriad cushions on the bed (why do hotels do this?). A soothing cream was put on the pillow "to help us sleep", which we thought a rather ridiculous refinement. On the other hand, the bathroom was large and bright, with an excellent shower, a bath and two washbasins.

Luxury in a Remote Setting

Posted Jun 3, 2014
Pros: Public Spaces.
Cons: I thought that our room at the top of the building was lovely but the roof cuts into the space throughout. If not careful you can bump your head.
Location: The hotel offers a variety of activities. In addition there are lots of walks and hiking in the area.
Classic historic property. Nice walking. Comfortable public rooms. Incredible whiskey bar. The lakes and mountains in this area have remote beauty.

Comfortable hotel great food and attentive staff

Posted Apr 15, 2012
Pros: welcoming and helpful staff
Cons: creaky shower seat
Location: fantastic scenery and views of loch
unstuffy welcoming staff. I am in a wheelchair and staff very helpful. Accessible room, although small ,had wetroom and plenty of room for wheelchair. The food was beautifully presented and good quality. Highlight of trip was a few hours spent with head gardener Les in the walled garden! Wonderful scenery and energetic activites for able bodied but warm lounge with log fires seductive. Overall a great experience.
