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

We have stayed with Janet and Graeme for many years now on regular trips to the north of Scotland. This is a friendly, comfortable, clean and up together B&B. The bedrooms are not particularly large, but are all of good quality. Breakfast is excellent and is served in the conservatory. The B&B welcomes walkers. I would unreservedly recommend this B&B...

Stayed here for a few nights while visiting Fort William. Good base to walk up Ben Nevis, close to Steall Falls (well worth the walk!) and not too far from the city centre. Room was en suite, clean and well presented with towels and tea/coffee facilities. Proprietors were friendly and a good source of local knowledge although we sometimes felt... More

Had a great time at this bed & breakfast. It is a great location very close to the Glen Nevis area (definitely take the path to Steall Falls), the train station if you take the Jacobite Steam Train, and the town centre. It was a great location middle location for going up to Loch Ness or down to Inveraray. The... More

The beds might not be kingsize but the house feels cozy and they make a good breakfast. I definitely check if they have a room available the next time I go to explore Ben Nevis. The hosts are wonderful people, willing to help you out with directions and finding nice walking paths.

Very good location, walking distance from downtown, and on the road to Glen Nevis. Good breakfast. Friendly owners. Only "minus" would be the carpet in the bathroom, and a "plus" would be more soap and shampoo available. Wifi impossible from rooms overlooking the street.

Just spent the weekend here and all was first class. The guest house itself was lovely from the outside, when we arrived inside it was all decorated to a very high standard. Owners were both very helpful and friendly. Our room was beautifully decorated too and very clean. You can tell the owners have put alot of hard work into... More

Superb Guest House. Good sized bedroom with en-suite. Spotlessly clean and tidy, could not fault anything. Very friendly and helpful staff. Range of different breakfasts available, to suit all tastes. The car park is a good size. Location to Ben Nevis, other walks and Fort William is excellent. Highly recommended.

My boyfriend and I left it to the last minute to book accommodation in Fort William. I called Ben Nevis Guest House and was greeted on the phone with a very welcoming voice. It took us over 11 hours to drive from Kent and were welcomed when we arrived. We were so glad to have a large room, a comfortable... More
