At half the price it would have been ok - unfortunately at over £90/night it's just not worth it. Small, cramped room, tiny cheap en-suite, tiny sink, tiny TV, wood chip paper. No choice over cooked items for breakfast even though they want you to order the night before. Owner's attitude to this was - well, just leave what you... More

We love this B&B. The rooms are always spotlessly clean. Nothing is to much trouble for Jayne and Joe who make every effort to make you feel welcome. Breakfast is delicious...I must say the best sausages I've had! Plenty of choice and always more toast/drinks if required. Views are brilliant from the front, looking out over the loch but even...

Spotlessly clean with warm hospitality. Situated in an ideal location with stunning views of Loch Linnhe. Full breakfast with something for everyone. Walking distance to the the main town. Would highly recommend.

Arrived to a warm welcome by Jane. We were shown to our room number 2 downstairs garden view. I was expecting a lake view due to a mistake made by booking/com we didn't get that and couldn't be moved due to it being full. I asked about the 2nd night but she said it wasn't possible. After complaining to booking/com... More

A standard b and b. Clean and tidy. Great view from dining room. I had continental breakfast which was OK, just cereal and toast. There is a 3% sure charge to pay by card so have cash available if you don't want to pay this.

My wife and I stayed at Hillview for 7 nights (15/08 to 22/08). If you find a better Guesthouse in Scotland I would be very surprised. I cannot understand the negative reviews at all. Whilst the Loch View Room 3 was not oversized, it was clean, comfortable and entirely adequate. Jane and Joe were extremely welcoming and friendly hosts, and... More

At a lower price, the room in Hillview was understandably smaller than our other accommodations but generally okay for one night's stay. The garden view from our room was pretty, while the loch view from the front of the house was charming. The B&B seems to be stretching its limit too much by taking too many guests though. Breakfast had... More

Made to feel most welcome by the hosts, the room was spotless and had everything we required for our stay also had free WI-Fi only 5 mins drive away from Fort William. The breakfast is lovely. The views from the hotel are lovely so if you are lucky enough to get a bedroom with these views you wont be disappointed,... More
