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

The hotel was welcoming. Tried to book two single rooms via booking.com. We were given double rooms for the price of singles. Breakfast good and fast service, with views from the restaurant across the Loch. Rooms a bit small but very comfortable. Rooms on the front are near the road but the soundproofing was adequate for us. Might be a... More

Very good value in an expensive holiday location. £65 for a double room with a very full breakfast. Relaxed friendly service in a building which has maintained some of its old character, ie oak staircase and panels, so a little dated, but we like that. We ate in the hotel both evenings, only had 2 couses as they are good... More

We had a one night stay here as we were attending a function, very reasonable rates, spacious room with a well stocked tea tray, Hairdryer in room as well, small clean ensuite bathroom. No Wifi in the room, that was the only let down. We never made breakfast so can't comment personally on this.

Just visiting Fort William and popped in to this hotel for a bite. There appeared to be regular locals because of the meals they serve up. The four of us varied our meals from sandwiches to meals, and all were thoroughly enjoyed. The chips was by far the best chips I have ever experienced in any pub, restaurant or cafe... More

When I arrived I was a little unsure. The hotel looked old and the decor was dated. However this seemed to add to the charm and character of The West End. The location is good, easy to get around from. The room was spotlessly clean and the bed was comfortable. Breakfast was very good and I was impressed with the... More

I love Fort William, definitely my gateway to the highlands. It is always busy and full of tourists but this gives it a vibrancy and yet you can soon be in the solitude of Glen Nevis or the mountains themselves. The West End Hotel is fairly central and overlooks the loch so you are soon in the hub of the... More

Stayed for one night on way up to Skye. From the outside the Hotel looks very ordinary, but all the staff and the lounge bar/ restaurant were very good. We stayed in room 49 which had a lovely view of the Loch, with a double and a single bed for £65 including an excellent full breakfast. The restaurant in the... More

The room had a stale odor and I was initially turned off by how dated everything looked, but I was surprisingly comfortable. The receptionists were exceptionally friendly and helpful, plus the location allows for easy access to the main street.
