“Abolute perfection”
Reviewed 17 August 2013 via mobile

Nice rooms, good beds, perfectly equipped. Very friendly and competent hosts. Excellent breakfast in special room (feeling of being in the woods). Enjoyed to get a cup of tea every afternoon, served in the living room.

Stayed August 2013, travelled with friends

Torrdarach House is absolutely wonderful. Hosts Louise and Struan are friendly and good fun to chat with, offering genuinely helpful advice about local walks and places to eat. They were non-invasive, yet somehow always available when needed.

Breakfast is delicious--when I told them I was a vegetarian in advance, they even ordered in veg sausages for me!--and served in generous portions that kept us going all day. Afternoon tea and coffee is complementary and served with Struan's exceptionally tasty tablet.

The room we stayed in was large, bright and airy, decorated a low-key, modern style (no time-travelling back to an overly-floral, early 90s motif, thank God!). It was always kept very clean and stocked with fresh linens. The bathroom was sparkling clean with useful toiletries available, including soap and shampoo/body wash provided in large, refillable containers--so much nicer to use than teensy hotel-provided soaps. The shower pressure was excellent.

The only bad thing about our Torrdarach House experience is that we did, eventually, have to go home. *sigh* We'll hopefully back again soon!

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 6, which is the only one on the ground floor. Though originally concerned it migh...

Torrdarach House is beautifully done in the Arts and Crafts style. All the areas in the house, the rooms, the breakfast area, the sitting area all get lots of natural light and are very warm and inviting.Our room was a nice large room with a huge bathroom. The mostly glass breakfast room overlooks a really pretty garden and the breakfast is very, very nice. The hosts Struan and Louise were so warm and freely gave out tips about the area. An excellent place to spend some time.

The Torrdarach House is an absolute gem in Pitlochry. 5* luxury accommodation that puts many of the local hotels to shame!! Louise & Struans attention to detail is second to none, their breakfasts and hospitality are something for ALL to experience. The complimentary coffees and Scottish tablet in the afternoons are a must. Beautiful accommodation throughout Torrdarach House, my wife and I were there in mid-July and will definitely return soon to enjoy the great hospitality on offer. Highly recommended....

Best B&B we have ever stayed in. So sad to only be able to stay one night. Such lovely owners, beautiful clean and comfortable property, yummy breakfast, and great location. Everything has been thought of, from being able to have a whiskey in the lounge, using a spare rucksack in the wardrobe for walks, ice cold water in your room, an iPad to use in the lounge, a huge collection of DVDs to watch in your room, a good hairdryer......the list goes on and on. We will definitely be back.

We stayed for a couple of nights at Torrdarach House in September 2012 and in April 2013 – so it was our third stay now in July within one year (and Pitlochry is not just around the corner from Vienna)!
In total we stayed 6 nights this time - Struan and Louise were again the perfect hosts, their beautiful house & garden was impressive as ever and the breakfast was delicious.
We have stayed in a view B&B’s around Scotland in the last years – a few of them were clean and nicely decorated, a few served a wonderful breakfast or were in beautiful surroundings or had lovely hosts – but the full package you only get at Torrdarach House. It is perfect!
From my side no room recommendation because we have now tried every room except 3 & 4 – the rooms are different but all nicely decorated, the bathrooms are brilliant and with the little extra touch (f.e. face cloth, cool water in a thermos flask, toiletries from Scottish Fine Soaps,..). But we really enjoyed our stay in The Bothy this time – really quiet and with a private courtyard!
Thank you for another wonderful stay! I look forward to returning soon!

Hi Susanne. Three times in 10 months and 5 of our 7 rooms tested! You should just move in permanently and be done with it. Sounds like you might be another Bothy convert too. Thanks very much for the fantastic review. See you again soon........Struan.
