First impressions were okay. The room was dated but clean and the bed was comfortable. We then went out and only resturned at night time for our dinner at the Italian Restaurant, which was very nice and I would definitely recommend it! However, when we returned to our room the entire floor was vibrating and a very annoying constant sound... More

We enjoyed our stay in the Imperial and were pleasantly surprised at how good it was. The staff were almost faultless! Would definitely stay again if we are in Fort William without our motorhome, Esmerelda.

Paid an upgrade and got a reasonable room but right next to a disco didn't get to sleep until past 2 in the morning on last night. Girl on reception wasn't interested in a refund and no manager to be found

Wonderful reception with European electricity adapter at our disposal and many practical information about the hotel and the village. A nice surprise was waiting for us once we got in the room. It was spacious and equipped with a 50inches tv screen with satelite chanels, an office desk and a spacious bathroom with Jakouzi! We immediately fitted the adaptor and... More

It is very close to the main road, so could be a bit noisy, especially at peak times. It is in an ideal location for visiting the town though. No sports or leisure facilities in the... More

This is a clean budget style hotel. Our room was facing the main street. This was right opposite to a pub. This meant that we could hear the very loud rock band playing until midnight and sometimes 1am, this was on the weekend and Monday night. It was impossible to sleep with the noise of the music and drunken people... More
