Torwood
Ranked #53 of 97 Portree B&B and Inns
Reviewed 6 June 2014

The friendly, accommodating hosts, Anne and John, made our stay at Torwood very pleasant. Our room was nicely furnished, with a modern en-suite with shower, all exceptionally clean. Enjoyed breakfast, which offered the full range of options typical of a Scottish breakfast. We liked the location - a pretty farming area just a short drive from Portree, and convenient to Dunvegan and the ferry port of Uig. We recommend this B&B - we would stay again if in the area.

We recently stayed at Torwood - fantastic accomodation and warm welcome from Anne and John. The bedroom was very cleaned and comfortable. Excellent breakfast. Views from the house are stunning together with surrounding countryside.Highly recommended. Tony and Sue

Torwood is just lovely. A very warm welcome from Anne and her family.
The breakfast was amazing! Plenty of wildlife to spot in the surrounding area, red and roe deer in the fields and a buzzard in the garden!
A great base for touring Skye. We loved Torwood!

Room Tip: We had the family en-suite room, lovely.

We were greeted by John, Anne husband with a very warm welcome and Anne showed us to our room which was cozy and warm. Our stay was the best and then came the breakfast menu which was very complete and given our choices to fill out for each morning. We would stay again if in the area. Only 10 min. from Portree and an easy ride back and forth. Easy location to see the whole island.

Room Tip: Try them you won't be disappointed

Anne and her family were terrific hosts. They were so kind. Their home is comfortable. The service is excellent. We loved staying at Torwood because it provided central access to Portree, Claigan coral beach, the Old Man of Storr, and many other places we visited. We highly recommend staying at Torwood.

We stayed 3 nights. Location is perfect, just ten minutes by car to Portree in a very calm, rural area. It is also perfect for sightseeing being "at the entrance" to three northern Skye peninsulas, which helps to avoid unnecessary driving when you want to visit all of them. The room is quite small, but very practical with double bed, a sofa to sit and a table. From the other hand it has everything we needed, as we were only spending there nights and early mornings, being all day out and dining in local restaurants. They have also detailed Isle of Skye maps, so that you can plan your sightseeing, books and DVD's which you can watch in your room (if you're a tv fan). So, all in all, the host is taking care about guests with different expectations.
Breakfast - very hearty and with good choices of local products: porridge, eggs, bacon, black pudding, mushrooms, tomato, etc.
Last, but not least: friendly and helpful host. We asked for wheelchair storage and print out of our boardings - that was solved in minutes.
Highly recommended.

We only stayed the one day, but it was our best b&b experience yet. Anne was a great host making us feel very welcome, the room & bed & breakfast all excellent. When back in portree, we know where we will be staying again........
