3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

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

This is a large hotel on the edge of Fort William with a flat 2 minutes walk to the main high street.The staff were very friendly and helpful. We had a good priced family room which was more than adequate with 3 beds provided for 3 adults. The overall decor was a little dated but clean and charming.We had a... More

Reasonably clean but dated. Had to run about in the shower to get wet and the "TV" was small to say the least and the shower door leaked which left the toilet floor soaked. The tv signal also was pretty poor with a bad picture and poor sound. Basic maintenance checks obviously not done.

We enjoyed our one night stay here at the West End. We just drove into town and looked for somewhere to stay. Luckily, they had a room and it included breakfast. The room was small but the big comfy bed and everything in the room was well placed and useful. Bit of a maze to find our room but still... More
