We stayed here Easter 2014 with a plan on bagging Corbetts. As we are out all day the main part of our needs is for a clean room, shower or bath, hot food and cold beer. The Ben View came up with all of these. As others have said it does need some touching up but a lot of Highland... More

This really is a gem. The building is simple, homely and very comfortable and Graham and the staff make you feel very welcome. The food is great, and it's so nice to get a really satisfying breakfast that isn't stodge, but cooked very healthily with the best quality ingredients (including the wonderful Stornoway Black Pudding) The surrounding area is beautiful...

Popped in for an evening meal while staying with friends. Warm welcome from Graham the owner and staff. Food was excellent - stuffed jalapenos, superb scallops with pesto and biggest gammon steak I've ever seen! Good range of drinks and prices very reasonable. Strontian like the rest of the Ardnamurchan peninsula is an absolute must to visit so go there!... More

On the first occasion they were very busy and we arrived close to their finishing time but there was no problem fitting us in and the... More

Stayed for 2 nights on a group trip while visiting west coast. Hotel is a bit worn and out-of-date but food was excellent and staff very helpful. Good choice for breakfast and decent portions for evening meal. My room was fairly small (had a double room to myself), but comfortable and clean which is my main priority. No t.v. in... More

We will return to this area... More

We came here after finding the 'main hotel' in Strontian full for our evening meal - thanks to the customer there who recommended this place. The hotel is pretty rough around the edges,and I wasn't really expecting much from the food - I was wrong. Proper pub food,proper pub portions,with proper Scottish/Northern service.This was our only pub meal in our... More

Am a bit bemused and baffled by these positive reviews. The place is not in good nick as demonstrated by the door handle hanging off the main entrance door. Took 40 minutes for our food to arrive. The chef seems to work a system where they cook everyone's starters first then the main courses no matter which table ordered first.... More
