I apologise for the lateness of this review. We stayed at Torlundy House for three nights from 27th September. We found Torlundy House with little difficulty about 5 minutes drive outside of Fort William which is what we wanted. We were met at the door by Michael who was very welcoming and served us homemade cake and coffee in the beautifully furnished guest lounge room. He gave us a list of restaurants to look at and also a list of local attractions to see while we wound down from our long trip from Lochinver.
Our room was really lovely and well equipped. It was at the front of the house, large comfortable and stylishly furnished with a fabulously comfortable bed. We thought the ensuite was great, particularly the power shower. I don't think there is anything Michael hasn't thought of to make your stay more attractive (there is even a place to leave your dirty shoes to be cleaned in the foyer) Our breakfast was fabulous with a variety of choices, hot and cold. My husband chose the hot breakfast every morning but I preferred the porridge which was really nice. The best part of the breakfast room is walking in to be confronted by a huge picture window with a view of Ben Nevus. It really brightened your day. Michael was a great host and a wealth of knowledge about the local area. There wasn't a thing he didn't know about the local restaurants and tourist attractions. All in all I think it was the best run b&b we visited (we stayed in 10)
I would like to thank Michael for sharing his home with us and making our stay worthwhile by his helpfulness and wealth of knowledge about the local area.
