I stayed at the BEN VIEW HOTEL for several months with a few co workers while doing some construction work in the area. The work was a long hard day in wet and windy conditions, but getting back to the hotel at night was a welcoming and warm experience I will never find anywhere else in the highlands. The accomodation... More

I was recently in Strontian on a work trip, where I stayed in a local Bed and Breakfast. I was advised to come here for dinner and what a recommendation it was. The food was quite simply, superb! I had freshly made curried butternut squash which was absolutely amazing. The soup was well seasoned, and the right amount of spice... More

Graham went out of his way to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable, even picking us up from the pub at the end of the night. His full Scottish breakfast is unbeatable, proper coffee, nothing is ever too much trouble. A genuinely lovely, affable guy who makes staying at Ben View a pleasure. The rooms are basic but comfortable and... More

We were performing a show in Strontium. Graham couldn't do enough to work with our schedule, run us to/from the pub and generally be the most welcoming person ever. Cracking breakfast, comfortable beds and an amazingly friendly and helpful host.

We stayed for a weekend at the Ben View for a hill walking trip with our two dogs. We had only had one of the dogs for about ten days and he was really unsettled and a bit of a handful to say the least. Landlord Graham made us so very welcome and stated when we booked that he was... More

I cannot understand where a couple of the previous reviews are coming from. The West Highlands ARE damp. Sometimes they smell damp. The bedrooms do not, nor do the public rooms. The tiny bit of condensation I saw is stuck between two layers of double glazing. I would rather the host spent money on other stuff than replacing this. The... More

I stayed here for two nights on my walk around the British Isles for charity. The owner Graham was one of the friendliest people I have ever had the pleasure to meet. My room was spotless and my bed was really comfortable. The menu was fantastic! I had the biggest fresh fish and chips on the first evening and a... More

We went to Ben View on the opening night, at the beginning of April. There aren't that many places to eat around Strontian and we had been told that Ben View was the place to go if we wanted a really nice meal. The place also employed a full-time chef, apparently. We had made a reservation as, being the Easter... More
