Their brochure claims 'Worth the journey'.
We stayed here for six nights towards the end of March 2013 and were cosseted by Lorraine and David (the owners) and all their staff. Nothing was too much trouble, even down to arranging special meals for us due to medical needs. We did not wish to go out for more than two or three hours each day and therefore spent a great deal of time in the hotel. We were never made to feel we were in the way and indeed coffee and tea were available at the nod of the head. Food was hot (including the plates) and all the meals were very enjoyable. Breakfast was brilliant and in particular the fruit at the buffet table was excellent.
The room was very comfortable, as was the bed. Our stay coincided with a very cold snap in the weather and we were warm the whole time.
As for the journey, is it worth it? The road from Lairg to Tongue has to be one of the most beautiful in the U.K. running alongside Ben and Loch Loyal. The Tongue Hotel offers comfort, good food and service and if that is what you are after, look no further.
