My elderly mother and I stayed 2 nights in early April 2015. It's right on the lot of the Glenfinnan Station Museum (a lovely place to wander through) and Heiga and her husband waited for our train to arrive at 6pm to show us in. There are 5 compact sleeping pods, each with a bunk bed. 1 of the pods... More

Stayed last night, we hadn't booked but were lucky to be able to get a room, linen and have the place to ourselves. Well equipped kitchen made it all too easy, worth the walk up the hill to see the viaduct. Dining in the dining car is worth it too.

I stayed here with a friend between holidaying on the small isles and travelling to the Commonwealth games. We were only here for one night, but it was a great stay. All clean, everything provided we needed and a great pub just down the road. Despite knocking on the owners door a few times there seemed to be no one... More

This was our third stay in the Sleeping Car and we will definetly come back. The compartments, kitchen, dining room, and the bathrooms are spotless clean and very well looked after. Having breakfast in the beautiful 50ies dining area feels like a little trip back in time. We always meet very nice travellers here, and enjoy chatting with them. It... More

My boyfriend and I had booked a 2 nyt stay in the sleeping car so that we could see all the sights and do a bit of walking. I have stayed before when I was a child and loved it. The place hadn't change much however it was manky and really needed a good clean, bins hadn't been emptied, dishes... More

We stayed at the sleeping car on a quiet November weekend when the other hotels and things in the area were all closed. Thankfully the railway car stays open all year. It was my son's 4th birthday and being a bit of a train nut we thought he'd enjoy sleeping in the old railway car. It is amazing! Old and... More

The train carriage hotel idea is fantastic and the station and the carriage itself is full of old world charm. Great to spend a night in to experience it but wouldn't want to spend many nights stay as rooms as small (naturally as sleeping coupes) and beds not as comfortable as a proper bed (but again that is to be...

This is a unique stay experience but you should know what you're in for. Since you will be in the highlands mostly for walks, it isn't the place place to come back to for tired legs and an aching body. However I have to say that the staff are very very helpful and hats off to them for everything. I... More

Staying in a converted railway car was great fun, with the family bunk room and other family in the other rooms it was really good fun, a lovely view and something outside the norm of a hotel or hostel, thoroughly recommend this place and its a good price, only minus point is the walls are paper thin, some if the...

What a wonderful, quirky unusual place to stay. The sleeper car comes with five sleeping bunks. Don't be expecting a massive room they are on a train carriage. Then you get a shower room a separate w.c and a two sink area. At the other end of the carriage there is a well equipped kitchen and then a dining/seating area.... More
