We enjoyed our stay at Ben Nevis Guest House. We were there with our two daughters. Nice hosts. Clean rooms. The breakfast was very good.. The guest house is close to the city center and near Ben Nevis.

+ Helpful and friendly staff + Nice cozy comfortable rooms + Relatively convenient location We stayed two nights. It would be better if the only bar of soap shared across three people was replaced on our second night. Other 3 star guest houses that I stayed at even offered body lotions for free. However this does not. The rooms are... More

Nestled on a hill side, this guest house is a real gem! 10 minutes walking from the city centre and 10 minutes walking to the ben nevis path! Sourroundings are very relaxing with a little stream passing behind the house! Greame and his wife, the householders, are very welcoming and helpfull! Really nice&chatty person that always made us feel confortable!... More

Stayed here with two pals to walk Ben Nevis, excellent accommodation, affable and informative host, easy walking distance to the town centre centre and to the start of the Ben Nevis path. Great breakfasts. At the risk of sounding like a cliche, ticks all the boxes. You won't be disappointed.

I visited with my husband, brother and sister in law. We had walked the Northern half of the West Highland Way and wanted a place for comfort and recovery and a starting point to climb Ben Nevis. This fit the bill beautifully! On approach everything looked clean and well maintained. We were welcomed by Janet who offered us an alternative... More

We were warmly welcomed by Graeme on arrival, after a 10+ hour car drive from the south. Shown to a double room overlooking the conservatory eating area and carpark, we were politely shown around and then left to relax, for which we were very grateful. Breakfast was simple and easy to request for the next day, and the quality was... More

About 20 minutes walk from the trail up Ben Nevis and 10 minutes walk from the town centre, this is an ideal location, particularly if you don't have a car. Rooms are comfortable and the cooked breakfast is excellent and generous. The couple who run it are very friendly, helpful and informative.

While walking the West Highland Way (again) we stopped over here on our arrival in Fort William. This is the second time we have stayed here and the excellent high standards of accommodation are as we remembered from our first visit. The owners could not be more helpful in ensuring that everything is done to make your stay a pleasant... More

We stayed in this Guest House for one night at the end of January. We received a lovely welcome from Janet and Graeme and were made to feel very comfortable. Our room was fine - the decor is slightly dated but the bed was comfy and the room was spotless. Good shower (although there was no shower gel/ shampoo etc... More
