We enjoyed our stay at the Tailrace Inn very much. The pub is set in a most beautiful area and within reach of Fort William. The room was very comfortable, with teamaking and excellent shower. The window had a mozzie net which we appreciated as there were midges on the first night. The staff were friendly and helpful and breakfast... More

All the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. The only slight criticism I would have was that they would not give out glasses of water at the bar even if you were buying other drinks and food and have a sign saying that it isn't drinkable, which seems unlikely in the Highlands! We were told you could drink the water... More

Kinlochleven is the best place on earth, & The Tail Race is the place to stay. Such friendly staff, warm & welcoming. I love Kinlochleven, makes me cry just thinking about the place. I will retire to Kinlochleven. I have so many sweet sweet memories of The Tail Race Inn. I love you, Tail Race.

Convenient family room. Kids love bunk beds however that one had too limited headspace. Nice options for food in pub area with good atmosphere. Enjoyed the evening sun on the terrace! Nice traditional "cooked" breakfast.

We've been here as a family spending a week of hiking holidays. ROOM: Quite a small ensuite room for 5 persons. Beds not really comfortable - two of them even a bunk bed. Really old fashioned design, needs refurbishment. Bathroom good and no complaints about cleanliness. Doors and floor always make noises. WIFI: Only good in the bar area which... More

We had a one night stay and were impressed. The welcome was warm and the room was very clean. If there was one criticism the bed was a bit saggy. The food in the bar was good quality and reasonably priced and the breakfast was excellent and freshly cooked. The bar in the evening was very busy and obviously a... More
