“Best-run hotel in Scotland?”
Reviewed 22 April 2012

I have stayed here twice in the past year, both times socially, and will try to return as soon as possible! Without exception the staff are genuinely friendly, always ready to help.
The bedrooms are best described as 'characterful', as befits an old coaching inn squeezed onto a corner of a twisty old road. There are various comfy seating, drinking and eating areas, and the atmosphere is friendly and relaxed.
The menu is quite extensive, and favours locally-sourced wild game, meat and fish. Portions are generous, and presentation is straightforward, not over-fussy. The quality of the food, overall, is quite superb, but amazingly is priced at a 'pub-grub' level. Most main courses are in the £10-£15 range. Not surprisingly, the place was going like a fair when I last stayed, and throughout it all, the staff were always their serene and charming selves.

Four of us had a meal here last week while on a trip to the area. Service was excellent apart from when we ordered a bottle of wine and it failed to be delivered to the table. My cousin (age 12) was able to order a starter from the childrens menu and then a steak from the main menu. His garlic bread starter was lovely and probably large enough to feed 2. My rib eye steak was cooked well to my liking and had more than enough peppercorn sauce. My cousins sirloin steak looked more medium-well than the medium he'd ordered but he enjoyed it. The other mains were excellent too. We had 3 desserts - the almond tart with coconut ice cream was straight out the oven and was delicious - ice cream could have done with being a bit more coconut-y. Overall this meal was a lovely treat, the staff were very attentive and the food was of an excellent standard.

We arrived at the Tormaukin for the start of our 35th wedding anniversary away weekend and it is like going home, it is a most chilled place to relax in, we had a great lunch and then went into the 17th centuary bar and sat by the roaring log fire. The little waitress Marie who was near enough nine months pregnant wirled around like a dervish serving everyomne in the most pleasant manner ever. The whole staff were of the highest calibre and the evening meal was out of this world. I had ordered white lilly`s for my wife and they were laid out in our lovely 17th centaru room decorated to the highest standard. The roll top bath was great to have a long soak in and the sun streamed in our day window. The bed was really comfortable and we had a most enjoyable sleep. The breakfast the next morning was superb abd yes Marie was around like a little mother hen ensuring everyone was looked after. I would recommend anyone to stay there.

Room Tip: No 11 it has a bay window and a lovely roll top bath

Just returned from a 2-night stay at the Tormaukin. It was to celebrate my husbands' birthday and it was to be a surprise. All the hotel staff conspired with me to keep it a secret and couldn't have been more helpful, they really made it a special day! As usual the food was beautifully presented and tasted wonderful and the room was so comfortable, we could have stayed for a week. If you need a quiet time away from it all, in a place with lots of character and charming, attentive staff. you will find it here.

Room Tip: Room 1 is a little on the small side for 2 people.

What a great find! We had a 2 night stay this weekend & would thoroughly recommend it. Really welcoming staff & nothing a bother to them. We were shown to our room in the annexe, which was perfectly acceptable, although if we come back, we'd prefer to be in the main hotel. The shower was the worst part of our stay - couldn't get pressure & had difficulty turning it on and off. Food was absolutely superb - ate in both nights & didn't disappoint. Breakfast also very good & freshly cooked with a good choice. If in area, would definitely return.

Room Tip: Would try to get a room in main building.

We stayed a couple of nights in Room 6 with our dog (from 24/3/12). The staff were without exception all superb and made you feel very welcome, from the minute they helped you to your room with your bags to the coffee on the house before we left. Food great and prices reasonable. Can't recommend it enough for anyone looking for a quiet weekend in the country with walks on the doorstep.

Room Tip: Rooms 4 and 11 have recently been refurbished. Room 4 is a particularly good size (although we neve...
