Whilst not staying overnight in this property we decided to stop off, as it is next to the main road from Glasgow, the manager was very welcoming saying there was a 20 min wait on tables but we barely had sat down when we were invited to come and be seated for a meal. The first waitress was very charming... More

Staff were 2nd to none, nothing was a bother to them - very attentive... More

We stayed here for a long weekend as my partner was doing the great Scottish swim in Loch Lomond. We had a family room, two separate bedrooms with their own ensuites which was great. Our 10 year old loved the novelty of his own room and bathroom. The staff are lovely, friendly and helpful, our little one got bags full... More

We booked this hotel as there seemed to be little else available in the right place at a sensible price. We were impressed with the friendliness anf helpfulness of the staff. The room was good for the price. The breakfast was a bargain and cooked very well. The barfood was good and reasonably priced. All in all a good place... More

We stayed here on our way up to Fort William. This was virtually the only decently priced hotel to be found in the area- I appreciate that this is the peak time but some hotels and in particular soul-less hotel chains really take the piss when it comes to one off stop-over journeys. We found this hotel by Google-ing towns... More

I've stayed at this hotel quite a few times and it is fair to say that things are going downhill. The cleanliness of the rooms is nowhere near as good as it was and my room was way below what most guests would expect as can be seen from the photos. There was dust and fluff on the skirting boards,... More

Have just returned from a one night stay at the Abbotsford Hotel. Room was okay, although bathroom door would not shut properly (room 26). Bed nice and comfortable. Could not comment on evening meal. However breakfast was good. Fruit juices, cereals and the usual cooked breakfast. The hotel needs updating in certain areas, but otherwise okay.

I visited the Abbotsford recently and was bowled over by the fantastic food and the excellent service. We ordered black pudding and haggis fritters as a starter, which were fantastic with a delightful thin and crispy batter with a tomato dip. Three of our party ordered the sirloin steak, which was delicious and served on a platter with large home... More

The outside facia of the Abbotsford Hotel is not the most attractive....but do not pass judgement on the hotel by this. It's a 'little treasure'. My husband and I were up to his home town for a family funeral so we weren't in the most positive frame of mind as you can imagine. The lovely receptionist was so very friendly... More
