We stayed 5 night's at the Alexandra. Fantastic as a base for exploring surrounding areas.. The staff were very polite and helpful. They were always kept busy in the food stop restaurant. The hotel was quite dated but was clean and comfortable. I would be very happy to stay here again. Lynne from Glenrothes Fife

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

We have just came back from Fort William after a stay in Skye just to top off the long trip from Edinburgh, this hotel has a good location and it is central for the train station which is just over the road.
