Review of Torburnlea B&B
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 27 May 2024
Our BA flight was cancelled from London so we only had one night here. We wished it had been two. It is a lovely ex-family mansion, beautifully decorated. Large garden. We missed eating here as it was a Sunday night but enjoyed our breakfast. Everything is overseen by Andrew Hall and his wife who also organize bespoke safari trips.

My experience at Torburnlea Luxury Homestead surpassed all expectations. The hosts exemplified warmth and provided valuable insights into the local area. Throughout the stay, privacy was respected, and the ambiance of the homestead fostered a sense of profound comfort. Having spent two nights, I am resolved to extend future visits to three or four nights, a testament to the exceptional quality of this accommodation. Departing was met with genuine reluctance, underscoring the profound satisfaction derived from this unparalleled retreat.

We have visited this stunning house many times and every single time we have had an amazing experience. The house is beautiful, decorated with such care and attention to detail. Everyone at Torburnlea makes you feel most welcome and always make sure that your stay is memorable. The rooms have all the amenities that one needs for a 5 star experience. The breakfast is delicious and on our last visit we had such a fantastic dinner served in the most relaxing atmosphere. We will definitely go back and keep making special memories in this wonderful place.

Wonderful, antique-styled house with beautiful garden in closed and safe estate area. Owner & management very nice - thank you, Andrew & Stanford. We booked room 3 and asked if we could see other free rooms. No problem to change to room 6 for the regular difference between these two rooms. Room 6 on first floor was great and big. Separate seating lounge with great garden view. Comfortable bed. Bathroom separated by full wall from ground to ceiling.
Non-buffet-breakfast and dinner which was no problem because rich and tasty.
Slight complaint for thin wall to room 5 which lets you hear what happens next door. These are the only 2 rooms on first floor, so booking both as a family would be perfect.

OMG, This is the most beautiful place I have visited in a while. The house is amazing, perfect for people who like being a bit away from everything else and still enjoy 5-star treatment. The food was out of this world, the breakfast was always amazing and the dinner, wow, MR Stanford is a really good chef. The pool is very close to the house but man it would have been even more nicer if it was in the premise. I give them a 1o/10.

We had a magical stopover at Torburnlea. Stanford is an exceptional host and took great care of us. We had an excellent dinner which would fit into any of the top fine dining restaurants. Such a treat to be able to go down into the cellar to chose a bottle of wine from their wide selection. Love the history of the house.
We are sorry to have only spent the single night but greatly appreciate their flexibility to allow us. Looking forward to returning
