Torguish House B&B and self-catering cottages
Ranked #84 of 232 Inverness B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 12, 2012

I visited Torguish House last week with a friend of mine. We had been doing John O'Groats to Lands End and we were looking for accommodation. We had been running late and came across Torguish House. We were at the end of the drive when Mike and Angie's son Ben was coming home and told us that they had rooms available. Well, from the start we were made to feel very welcome, the house has a great selection of antiques that really sets the character of the house.
The house may look too close to the A9 but rest assured theres no noise when at the house.
The rooms facilities were excellent and the breakfast was hearty and plentiful.
I will definitely be returning to this wonderful B & B, my only fault with Torguish House would be that I didn't stay long enough.
I will be recommending this B & B to anyone who wishes a central base camp to visit Scotland and I certainly will be returning.

Room Tip: Forget the big chain hotels, this one has character and service with that personnel touch

We took half-a-dozen Austrian friends on a two-week Scotland tour and Torguish was voted one of the highlights. With its charm, its eccentricity and its friendliness, it was the British 'Olympic Games' of B&Bs. Definitely a Gold for Angie & family.

I visited Torguish House last week with my husband and granddaughter and had a wonderful time. The house is full of character and the room and facilities were excellent. The breakfast was more than ample with a wide choice. Angie, Mike and family were so friendly and welcoming that we really hope we can visit there again soon.

I dont think i have ever stayed anywhere that made me feel so at home so quickly. The house has an amazing collection of antiques both inside the house and out. Mike and Angie are very welcoming, the rooms very comfortable and the breakfast was hearty and tasty, I will definitely stay here again, it is worth a detour or to use as a base for touring and that on my list of things to do.

Well where do I start , its that good . After several days with friends on a Bike tour of Scotland, and B+B`S that where not up to it , this was the place that I was looking for , a real Diamond amongst the so ordinary and over priced b + b`s. As soon as we pulled up Mike and Angela where there to welcome us into there Treasure Trove or , Alladins cave , call it what you want , but you`ll understand when you visit . We where taken in to the living room straight away and offered tea or coffee , and we talked about our tour experience of Scotland and Motorbikes and they genuinely want to know where we had been and where we are going.Anyway after relaxing we went to our room, 3 man room , a double and 2 singles . 5 star would`nt beet this . The place was clean and tidy ,we didnt have to ask for extra towels or silly things which you would expect to be in your room.All the rooms are decorated and furnished to a high standard ( 4 poster beds) that you would expect in a high class of hotel.Breakfast was well also, the best we had . Angela even took us to the nearest restaurant the night before. If your going to Scotland use this place as a stop off there and back , truly Unique and friendly couple. Oh and watch out for the suite of armour going up the stairs. Brilliant , thanks to you both.

Room Tip: they are all quiet , and good.

I will keep this brief, as I will only find myself repeating what others have priviously said , so here goes,-FIRST CLASS in every way, WARM , WELCOMING , CLEAN, FREINDLY, the perfect place to stay if touring the Highlands,or simpily passing through. This place is unique and offers exelent value for money. In my experience of B&Bs in Scotland , this place is streets ahead , its a rare thing to find hosts that are genuinly interested in what you are doing on your holiday and assist in every way they can to make a holiday to remember for all the right reasons.
