Just back from a fantastic weekend, the staff are a credit to Bay hotels. The food was very good, the dinning room staff could not do enough for us and the chamber staff well what can I say first class. Can't wait to get back, I highly recommend this hotel.

we visited the hotel with National Holidays for a weekend break. The hotel itself is very good with our room overlooking the loch. Unfortunately there are no amenities around it, the nearest being Fort William 2.5 miles away. The staff, especially the dining room staff were very good but there is a language problem with some. When we went for... More

Having stayed at the Caledonian three years ago and thoroughly enjoyed that visit, I was pleased to see it hadn't changed much. The hotel was clean, room was clean, comfortable and the food very good. The evening entertainment was a little bit cheesy and the photos of the acts in the foyer need updating. The hotel is a good walk... More

It was a largish room with views of only the side car park but this was only a Standard room so not... More
