We had a fantastic meal with the vegetarians raving in our party of 4 as much about their vegetables and their preparation as I did about my fantastic Highland beef. The service was impeccable and the desserts sublime. Everything perfect!

The staff were extremely friendly and not rushed which set a great tone for the evening. The food was delicious but I recommend having a pre dinner drinks and canapes in the drawing room / sitting room before going through to dine. After dinner certainly have a look at (or ideally try) a whisky from their famous whisky and gin... More

We were staying for a couple of nights and the whole experience was perfect and relaxing. Our dog even got gravy bones as a welcome gift. Thanks to all hotel staff along with Hugo... More

Good but perhaps not great. Had honeymooned in the hotel many years ago, but it was a bit full and pricey this time round so we just sprung for dinner while staying locally. We enjoyed the evening, it was perhaps a bit expensive for what it was. Still pretty good quality though, not a disappointment, just not amazing. Lovely view... More

We stayed at the Torridon Inn and booked a meal one evening at the hotel. Lovely old house with nice seating areas and well stocked whisky and gin bar. The food was absolutely delicious, perfectly cooked and relatively good value. The food was somewhat let down by the welcome and the service which was reminiscent of the English Riviera. The...

The food is excellent, dinner and break fast were really good. The restaurant staff is mostly non Scottish and friendly.

As part of a supercar group staying at this hotel we received service that was superb. The food, the hotel, the little extras were all of the highest standard. Will definitely make a trip back. i can imagine that it would be a wonderful place to spend Christmas

We went for the seven course menu at £75 and it was good value. When did you last have sea urchin? Cannot understand why they don't have a Michelin star. Be warned that portions are tiny, some no more than a square inch, but packed with flavour and after seven courses you are full. Good wines at fair prices for... More

We had the five course meal as part of a room deal (about which I'll rave on the hotel review). We started in the drawing room, a warm, cosy place full of settees where we sat with our menus and aperitifs. As usual, I found the wine list harder to choose from than the menu. Luckily, staff weren't pushing for... More
