I have to point out I am a very fussy consumer. The staff especially the Gentleman behind the bar and always floating around every where was so friendly and helpful. If more hotels could base their hotels on how this hotel is run then they would never be empty. Food very well presented and tasty and travelling on my own... More

After a poor attempt at camping and almost crippling myself with a back problem, we decided to attempt to book in to this hotel because the view was amazing. The receptionist was a very friendly lady who was more than helpful. We got the last room available which was a lovely room with a view out over the loch, the... More

Rooms and breakfast fine while a little pricey. Ate in an Indian in town recommended buy same manager and it was good. overall not bad, large bar... More

During a motorbike tour I stayed two nights here with two friends. We were made very welcome, the staff were attentive and helpful, the food was of high quality and served promptly. Although slightly dated, the décor was in good repair. If the en-suite shower had delivered hot water more efficiently I would have given 5 stars!

The hotel night porter was a star and sorted us a room when we arrived in Fort William late at night after travelling, and served us lime and soda even though the bar was closing/closed. It was a budget room, as we'd asked for, so were happy with the appearance of the room/hotel and it was comfortable. HOWEVER, as we'd... More

Basic accommodation, and a little noisy at night (walls are quite thin and the TV was clearly heard from the room next door). Reception and bar staff were very helpful and parking was great for motorbikes. Breakfast was ok, but nothing special. The room was comfortable and clean. Ideally located to eat out in the evening.

Fort William, the centre of many delightful excursions and access via rail from Glasgow, 4 hours. This was an overnight stay, very well situated at the long main street overlooking the loch. Staff very friendly and relaxed, rooms very basic but clean and the public rooms, old-fashioned and adequate. Breakfast was a full Scottish one and very good. Would recommend... More
