My friend and I chose this hotel for its price but I would go back for the wonderful staff and overall experience. The room was large, clean, and colourful. You can tell that the staff are proud of the hotel and it has some beautiful spaces like the dining room. Our breakfast meal was well cooked and served on lovely... More

I booked here as a stopover on my way to Glasgow. Sadly it was wet the whole time and i couldnt experience the outdoor pursuits the area has to offer. The hotel was full. My room was round the back facing a carpark but also the area where staff congregated for a fag. Luckily the weather was so bad they... More

We spent two nights at this hotel which was disappointing. Although it was not overly expensive you still expect a better standard. The main issue is very old fashioned and needs a full redecoration. Wi-fi was only available in the bar area which surely would not be that difficult to improve the reception throughout the hotel. The bed was comfy... More

We stayed for four nights. The rooms had loch views as did the lounges and breakfast room. Breakfast was great and the kippers smelt and taste wonderful. The poached eggs are great. Other meals are served in the bar area and I wouldn't choose to eat off low tables, but the local people who came to celebrate birthdays and such... More

We were just staying overnight on our way further north. The welcome in reception was good and the bar was friendly and well priced. The room was clean and perfectly adequate if not plush. Likewise breakfast was good, quickly and nicely served and reception at checkout was again very friendly and professional. All this for £27 pppn. The West End,... More

A visit to Fort William in the winter is always going to be a bit risky on the weather but luck was with us (almost). We picked the West End hotel due to its location and view across the Loch and we were not disappointed as our room had a sea view. The hotel is situated at the end of... More

First the positive stuff: my room only cost £30 B&B. When I arrived the reception staff were both involved in long, loud telephone conversations whilst completely ignoring the growing line of customers. When I finally received some attention I was abandoned halfway through booking in so that a skip delivery could be dealt with. The room was ok I suppose.... More

We recently visited the West End hotel in Fort William and were delighted with our stay. We phoned to book two nights BnB at short notice and were offered an excellent double room plus breakfast at a great price. The accomodation was spotlessly clean, comfortable and warm. The staff were friendly and highly professional. The location of the hotel so... More

We had a very spacious room on the top floor overlooking the loch. It was very warm and comfortable, which is often very necessary in the rainy weather! It also had a Bath. The receptionist was very friendly and helpful. Food allergies/intolerances were no problem - this is a great relief (we had phoned ahead about this). It is not... More

Stayed over at this place as part of our highland road trip. Decent rooms. We checked in late so in house eatery was closed. Had to walk a bit further for some chinese. But the breakfast was good. The hotel is located in front of the lake and has good view, especially from the restaurant. Overall a good place and... More
