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

We stayed at 9 hotels during our road trip in Scotland, and we all agreed this was the best. It ticked every box : lovely comfortable rooms, clean, good shower facilities and toilet, friendly but unobtrusive host, comfortable beds, good location near the centre, and wonderful home cooked breakfast. Exceptional.

My family and I were visiting friends in Fort William when we pre-booked this guest house. I pulled off Glen Nevis road into the roomy car park and parked up. On entering we were greeted by a very friendly, pleasant lady who asked us about our trip to Fort William. We told her about us visiting friends and our pleasant... More

Located within walking distance to both town and railway station. Room and bathroom were very clean and well maintained. Breakfast was served in a very light and warm conservatory at the front of the house. Scottish breakfast was superb. Fantastic value for money. Great help from the owners on walks in the immediate area, Neptune's Staircase is well worth a... More
