My son & I recently booked 3 nights stay at Torlundy House while on a winter climbing trip to Ben Nevis, just outside Fort William thsi February. We arrived late, but our host, Michael, gave us a warm welcome, and provided refreshments as soon as we stepped through the door. All of the facilitites and room/bathroom were of a very high standard, modern, spotlessly clean and comfortable - more akin to a hotel than what you would expect from a B&B. Lots of little extras (free Wifi, in room TV, coffee/tea making facilities, large separate sitting/reading area, etc. The breakfast room had a great view of Ben Nevis, and the breakfast offered excellent choice and quality of food - again cooked & presented to a high standard. Good parking facilities. Torlundy was very convenient for access to local outdoor activities - skiing, walking, climbing, canoeing and mountain biking. Also only a short distance from Fort William, shops and a wide range of restaurants and shops.
The key differentiator though is alway about the personalised service and friendliness of the B&B owners. Michael went out of his way to be helpful and made us feel very welcome at all times. He was knowledgeable about the local area, activitivies available and enthusiastic to ensure we had everything we needed. We will definitely stay here again in future, and would warmly recommend Torlundy House to other potential visitors to the area. P.S. I left my mobile phone charging cable in one of the draws. Michael found it and immediately posted it, first class, back to our home!
