I really liked my stay here if for the breakfast alone, it was amazing and the best way to start six days of hiking. Super handy with the supermarket across the road and plenty of places to eat just down the road. Also a beautiful hotel to look at. I had a great sleep and would recommend.

The hotel is located near the railway station and at one end of Fort William’s pedestrianised town centre “Parade” with shops, banks, bars and places to eat. It’s a fairly large hotel, a traditional place - better described as “comfortable” rather than “plush”. We stayed with a group on a skiing trip to nearby Nevis Range and Glencoe. Nevis was... More

Highlights: comfortable en suite room, view of the mountains from the room, good breakfast, with porridge and kippers(on request) as well as a full range of the usual range. Fine bacon and sausages from butcher in the area. Relaxed eating area serving good food during the day and evening as well as a more formal restaurant. The set 3-course meal... More

Just back from a three-day break and couldn't fault anything about the hotel and its staff. We were made to feel so welcome and the staff couldn't be more helpful............and pleasant. Will most definitely go back. The location is just perfect. The entertainment provided was excellent and made the stay even more enjoyable.

Had a couple of nights here. It turned out to be a pretty pleasant stay. The hotel was really well placed for both the high street in fort William (all of fort Williams shops are I'm walking distance) and the Ben Nevis area. Glen Coe is also in easy driving distance. The room was nicely decorated and very comfortable, though... More

We spent last Saturday night at the Alexandra and had a wonderful time. The hotel is so well situated in Fort William and will certainly suit all tastes. The reception staff in particular have to be commended. The buffet breakfast was excellent and there was plenty of choice. Although we weren't dining in the hotel, we have had meals in... More

Very pleasant hotel, close to all amenities in Fort William. Our room was situated on the 1st floor, was clean and comfortable as was our bathroom. The staff were very friendly, efficient and helpful. The service and the food in the restaurant was very good and plentiful We would recommend the hotel and would certainly return

Very conveniently situated near to the railway station (we travelled as part of a group). Public areas are quite pleasant and well kept, staff are helpful. Our bedroom on the second floor was a good size but the bathroom was dated and tired looking, certainly would benefit from an upgrade. Some of the corridor carpet was looking worn in places... More
