Stayed only one night. The room was clean but needs a redecoration. There is no shampoo/ body wash in the bathroom so lucky i brought some with me. The rooms walls are very thin, there's no privacy feeling like in a hotel. Breakfast was too greasy for my taste, beautiful view from the dining room window though. Overall, it was... More

Many B&Bs along the front but most were shut as it was out of season. However, Alltonside was open and welcoming. Very clean, tidy, friendly, hassle-free. Nice breakfast. Would definitely stay again. Recommended.

Just back and really enjoyed our stay here. Stayed for 2 nights with my fiancé (aged 26 & 32) and found this to be great value for money. Upon arrival we were shown our room and given our key for both the room and entrance door so we could come and go as we pleased. Breakfast was fab and Liz... More

The room we stayed in was comfortable and clean, and the breakfast was more than amble to keep us fueled up ! Access to Fort William and surrounding area was easy and there was a great view across the loch from... More

We stayed at Alltonside as a group of three adults in a family room. We stayed the weekend of the 13th Sept whilst climbing Ben Nevis. First impressions of the B&B were that it was very quaint with beautiful views over the loch. As others have said, it could do with a little renovation but you can see that the... More

First impression was bad, acceptance very impersonal. Room is small, very wet, bad smell was in room all the time. Bathroom small, wasn't just clean, bad feeling, when you are taking a shower. Breakfast is normal, similar within others B&B. Time for breakfast is punctually determined (from 8.00 to 8.45), which yeah in any case too short and very constrictive.... More

I stayed in 7 different hotels during my stay in Scotland. This hotel was one of the two, I spend more than one night in, since I with my friends were going for a ride with Jacobite steam train. The plus there was plenty of tea and coffee, breakfast was enough. The cons, the cheapest looking shower and bathroom i... More

The bed had nice linen, with a top sheet as well as a duvet which is nice,not every place has a top sheet which is what is standard where we... More
