Rooms were comfortable. Facilities were clean. Good sized kitchen and communal room. Good atmosphere in the evening, although this may change as the guests do. Enjoyed the shelf of board games in the common room. However there were only two toilets for all the rooms upstairs; one of which also had a shower in and so was often occupied or... More

I kinda liked this place, yes they have set hours but you can work round that, there is a shop near by, buses are frequent, and the sound of the steam train passing through was lovely. A lovely walk to the Fort Williams. There is not much atmosphere here, but the kitchen is well equipped and the beds are comfy.... More

The rooms stink, the bathrooms are dirty and really not up to date. But what is the worst is that you really do not feel welcome as a guest. Owners are rude, mostly busy with their own rules and very unfriendly.

I'll start by saying that this was booked for me on behalf of others, so I had no idea if what to expect. I only met the staff once during my three day stay. This didn't bother me but may put off some people. The bedrooms were cold and the bedding minimal. It got warmer with more people, but I... More

i hope that the owner gets the damp problem sorted as it makes the room smell repulsive ,especially when you have to put up with it all night . The place is in dire need of a revamp and I sincerely hope the place gets it . The owner only seems to have good intentions , but seems to have... More

Stayed one night, October - one person in a double room. £32 and no breakfast (there are B&Bs in Fort William looking nicer and charging less) . Bed dirty, seemed to have other peoples hair on sheets. Shower not working. Unfriendly landlady could just about be bothered to drag herself out of bed to take our group's money and get... More

Stayed here as a group of 8 before doing the 3 peaks challenge for charity. Upon arrival we were told to leave all our bags outside whilst the owner spoke to us like children about the house rules etc. (one of which is quite disturbing, none of your own bedding allowed sleeping bags, pillows etc you MUST use theirs, no...

If you are looking for cheap and very basic accommodation then Farr Cottage is the place for you. However you will have to put up with basic accommodation, damp in the rooms, poor showers a certain level of uncleanliness in the bathrooms and a slightly eccentric manager/owner. If you can live with these then you will be ok. Safe to... More

Farr Cottage is located in Corpach, quite a long walk from Fort William center, it's not clean and tidy as it can be, bathroom in our room was sort of a train-toilette, but worse. Bright spots are prices and the licensed bar inside.

I would like to make things clear as your review is unfair and wrong. Yes you booked 8 beds in our 10 bedded mixed dorm and you requested to book the room for exclusive use on your arrival. You didn't request this any time before when it would of been possible for you to do this. We have a young... More
