I am sorry that you did not feel that you could raise your complaints about your meal when you dined with us 3 weeks ago. I am sure that other prospective guests reading this can see that your grievances could easily have been rectified at the time, had you given us the opportunity. I would, however, like to point out... More

Recently stayed here as part of the West Highland Way in the cabins outside. The cabin was clean and warm, and sleeping bags/linen provided for a few pounds. Sharing with one other person was tight so for 4 may be a bit too much. The food in the bar was fine, and hit the spot. Breakfast was great, the highlander... More

I stayed in a cabin while walking the WHW. I was a single traveler so I had plenty of space, but bunk beds didn't allow me to sit on the bed. Nothing that bad, I just took a chair from the cabin's porch. Bed was comfortable and it had sheet and pillow, which was a nice surprise. The cabin was... More

Stayed here in August for a week as a base for seeing a bit of the area. Clean and comfortable. Owners and staff very friendly and great with my somewhat boisterous boys (4&2). Menu is typical for this kind of hotel but the quality of the food was a cut above - would recommend the Highlander burger and the breakfast... More

Having spent a fantastic few days based in Kinlochleven, I can fully recommend the MacDonald Hotel & Cabins as the best place to stay! Hosts Mark & Helen plus their staff were most welcoming & pride themselves in ensuring their visitors have an enjoyable & memorable stay. The international game of 'Killer' featuring players from at least 6 different nations... More

Just home from an excellent weekend's riding around Glencoe, Fort William and Kinlochleven with a group of around 30 of us using the MacDonald Hotel as our base. Hosts Mark, Helen & the team could not have been more welcoming - we were all thoroughly well looked after during our stay. The bar staff were great, and big Andy the... More

Stopped here the night before the last stage of the WHW, couldn't be more ideally placed as the start is virtually opposite. The hotel is very tired looking but one thing it did have that none of the other places had in our 6 days of walking the WHW was a bath - it was bliss slipping into a hot... More
