The Torridon Hotel was recommended by friends who have stayed before. When I booked, I went for a superior room and was happy to pay more for the privilege.
We arrived on a cold wet afternoon and were warmly welcomed by Lisa (outstanding member of staff) who checked us in and welcomed us in the drawing room for afternoon tea. Seeing how tea can be served has made b go back to it after many years of just drinking coffee. Great start.
The 5 course dinner was excellent and many thanks to the chef and his wife (pastry chef) for such wonderful creations. Our waitress (Irish accent) was very good and showed a clear knowledge of the food on the menu.
Extensive wine list and whisky selection. Good range of games for evening entertainment. Comfortable drawing room to relax in during the day and evening.
Breakfast in the morning was very good - particularly the fresh fruit platter.
Now for my only gripe...
The 'superior' room (Room 6) was lovely in respect of the bathroom and bed (decor and size) but felt small and dark. It also did not have a superior view looking out the back of the hotel over the roof. We paid £350 for dinner, bed and breakfast and if you deduct £100 for the dinner, this means £250 for bed and breakfast. Whilst the accommodation was comfortable, it did not provide value for money. I am not looking for budget value for money and do not mind paying a premium for luxury. However, this was too high a premium - particularly given the quality of room we were given for a 'superior' room.
If money is no object, go for it.
Happy to provide any direct feedback to the hotel.
