I spent a night at Ben View guest house during a 2-day trip around the Highlands. The booking was made by the company organizing the tour. The house itself is old and charming. It is situated near the town center (5-10 minutes walk). The lady was very polite and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable, a little bit old,... More

We stayed here over night during a 2-day highland tour. The tour booked the this guest house for us. When arriving, we found it was a very nice guest house. It had a nice living room and kitchen downstairs. The guest room was clean. Some old ladies stated to serve breakfast for us 15 minutes before the normal time at... More

I stayed here with my (adult) daughter and while it was clean and adequate, there were some important negatives and overall it didn't compare well with others we stayed in in Scotland. The first negative was the pricing. We wanted two single rooms and though there were plenty of rooms there were no singles, so the owner said she would... More

I stayed at the Ben View one night during a 2 day highlands tour. I found the room to be cleaner than most hotels I've stayed in, the sheets smelled like they were freshly washed and the bed was super comfortable. Breakfast the following morning was delicious and the owner went out of her way to make sure we got... More

A last-minute booking was made for me to spend one night here having completed the West Highland way and I was made to feel very welcome, right from the start. The room was clean and comfortable, and there was loads of hot water for a much needed bath. The guest house is well situated on the outskirts of Fort William,... More

We came for a four night stay. It was very comfortable and the bed was lovely. Clean towels every day and breakfast was good. Catherine Smith who runs the b @ b was very friendly and helpful. We also stayed last year and hopefully next year.

Excellent B&B, very welcoming, helpful and friendly. Stayed for 2 nights in a spacious room with en suite much bigger than you normally get. Room was on the side so traffic noise was not an issue. Very clean and well equipped. Within walking distance of town with a good selection of places to eat. Good parking and great location for... More

This B&B is located on the road so if you get a room at the front you can expect some noise. Service is business-like but the ladies who help, rather than the lady I assumed was the owner are bit more chatty. It's a much bigger house than it seems from the road but the room we had was relatively... More

Staying with friends, we had 2 double rooms. Both had their own small bathroom with shower. It is a typical country side B&B, with floral wall paper and small rooms. It was perfectly adequate for our needs. It had good value, and we were given a different rate for booking two rooms. The town of Fort William is quite small... More
