I've stayed 2 nights (11 & 12 august) in this very nice B&B. The host (Mike) was very nice to chat with, the room was lovely and clean and the breakfast was very good.If the weather is nice, you have also a very nice view to the Ben Nevis. And this B&B is a nice starting place for all kind of things to do in the area (go to Ben Nevis, or have a trip to Sky)
If I come to Scotland again, I will keep this place in mind.

We chose to spend 4 nights with Mike using Torlundy House as a base for touring round the Fort William area and were delighted with our choice. We did not find a better B&B in our entire trip around the NW and North of Scotland. Well appointed rooms, clean and beautifully maintained and a most congenial and knowledgable host in Mike. It really felt home from home for us and we would happily stay again if we ever went back to the Fort William area.

Deborah C, many thanks for the great review, I too am pleased you chose Torlundy House as it was great having you stay here and I do hope that one day you will come back to explore some more of what the area has to offer. It is such a vast part of Scotland with so much to see and do it is difficult run out of places to go. Even after many years of living here I am always finding something new. Kind regards, Michael.

My wife and I stayed at Torlundy House just for one night, and the only thing we regretted was that we didn't book for more nights: our welcome was really warm (Mike is very nice), the house is lovely decorated, the views are magnificent. The rooms are very clean and well equiped (tea, coffe, chocolate, TV...), and the breakfast is tasty and healthy!
I can but confirm what everyone else says about Torlundy House: it's excellent.
And as non-smokers, we loved the policy about smoking ;-) Bonus point.

Thank you Silviano C for your kind words reviewing your stay with us. Yes it was short, only for one night and we would have really enjoyed having you here for more nights, but we appreciate you were trying to see a lot of Scotland in a short time. We very much hope that you will return to see more of our great scenery and that you will come and stay a few more nights with us next time.

The reception was very kind and warm. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. Breakfast is marvellous, with very many options to choose from. Many trip ideas for tours in the vicinity available from the host Michael.

An excellent B&B of five star quality.
Mike treats all his guests similarly as VIPs. His attention to detail is truly professional and the breakfasts are gourmet standard.
It would be hard to find fault with Torlundy House, certainly the best B&B I have ever stayed at.

During our tour of the West of Scotland we stayed at many B&Bs and hotels but Torlundy House put them all to shame. In fact we paid £20 more for a four star B&B in Oban which wasn't a patch on this place. Upon arrival, we were offered tea and biscuits in the lounge which was a lovely touch and very much appreciated after a days sight seeing. Michael could not have been more welcoming. We weren't sure where to eat but Michael was on hand to suggest a number of eating establishments and even had a folder full of restaurant menus for us to peruse. The room was immaculate, the cleanest we had stayed in during our entire holiday and there were some luxurious touches like fluffy towels and even complementary hand cream. We were so glad we'd decided to stay for 2 nights and not just 1. Breakfast was excellent and Michael even went to the trouble of preparing little fruit fools on our second day. We thought it was a lovely touch that he prepared different things to add variety to the breakfast table for those staying more than one night. Torlundy House is just a short drive into town and ideally placed for Ben Nevis (which you can see from the dining room window!) and day trips further afield, such as the Isle of Skye and Mallaig. So all in all a fantastic stay. Thank you Michael!

Hello SeamusnJulie, thank you for your wonderful review of your stay with at Torlundy House. I am pleased we managed to be a little bit different for you, and matched your requirements of a B&B.

It is great when guests appreciate the little extras we do, and for those staying for several days it is also nice to be able to vary things a little bit and do something "off menu". I am also pleased you were able to make good use of the information we have. Guests staying more than a night always find this sort of thing useful, you come a long way so you want to get the best from your time here.

Hope to see you again one day if you are back up here. Best wishes, Michael
