Room and staff lovely, however shower not worth using and towels are so thin, it was a shame these let it down, As the temp reached 28 degrees it would have been nice to be offered a fan as no air con, and very little breeze through windows, a larger bed would also be nice that said it was a...

A fantastic hotel with great location. We had a group of 7 staying ahead of a charity Challenge on Saturday 13th June. The hotel staff were extremely welcoming, the rooms were well kept, clean and the bathroom was spacious and clean. Everything was in good working order and the beds were comfortable. We ended up having dinner in the bar... More

A very pleasant long-term business stay well looked after and perfectly located for the sites and scenery of Fort William and Argyle. Ben Nevis is just around the corner and steam train to Mallaig a 2 minute walk. Hotel is clean and comfortable would advise a luxury suite to get a good bath and shower. Excellent staff service very polite... More

We had a wonderful stay at this hotel. Menu choice in the restaurant was amazing from a 3 course dinner option, pizza menu, curry menu right through to a bar menu. I don't know how they manage to offer so much choice and it was always promptly served and delicious. Very generous servings which was great after a long day's... More

Friendly and helpful staff, overall clean and ok food. Leaking windows let the cold and the noise from the street in to the room. Only 50 m to walk to the shopping street where you find everything from pubs and restaurants to outlet stores for outdoor clothing and hairdressers.

The accommodation was very comfortable. The staff were friendly and quite helpful. The food in the restaurant was excellent and the three menus (a la carte, Italian & Indian) gave a very varied selection of dishes. The only worrying feature was the limited parking facility.

Group of 4 hungry travellers met by warm friendly receptionists who informed us that we were just in time for a hearty evening meal. Scoffed down with a local brew just ideal. Warm comfortable rooms spotless en-suite. Guys next door were equally impressed. Very satisfactory, one problem bar closes early and you are required to leave otherwise excellent. Lovely for...

I feel like there are many better places you can find in the area for the money. Upon check in we were greeted by a gang of bikers in the lobby that were already drinking heavily in the early afternoon. The room was older and musty, the windows leaked. After a long day of touring the countryside in the cold... More
