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

Stayed with other family members in three double/twin rooms. Rooms a wee bit tired but very clean. We found bed was comfortable but other family members thought them 'too springy' but that just shows that you can't please everyone all of the time. Bathrooms again very clean, although shower a bit underpowered. (Just like every other hotel I've stayed in... More

Stayed at this hotel as a group of five friends. We arrived early evening and with a few changes to our original reservation but Scott at reception sorted out our issues quickly and with a smile and a joke. First impressions for our whole party were therefore very good. Nice views from the bar/restaurant and the breakfast area. Breakfast was... More

This hotel was good value. We only stayed one night before starting the Great Glen Way, but it was exactly what we needed - good value and good food. I really enjoyed the haggis and neeps starter - tasty and filling. The staff we encountered were all very pleasant and helpful, which made our stay here very pleasant. Thanks.

Stayed here for one night while travelling with friends in April 2015. We didn't have reservations but were sorted out quickly and efficiently at reception. Rooms were fine, a little basic but clean and comfortable, food and service were quite good especially considering a very reasonable rate of £25pp Would stay here again.
