We booked to stay at the Benview for 2 nights but ended up staying there for 3, which says it all. It may only have 2 stars (correctly so) but you don't get stars for what made our trip so memorable. The food was good, in hearty servings & the breakfast in particular really set us up for the day.... More

Second visit and glad to say nothing changed. Still excellent menu, well prepared food and good reasonably priced spirits, wines and beers. Staff always friendly and very helpful even on a very busy night. Would recommend to anyone visiting Strontian/Ardnaumrchan.

Visited this hotel last weekend for a family celebration in the area. Good clean rooms, great breakfasts. We ate on the Friday evening in the hotel, the meal was great, bar full of local people enjoying the food always a good sign. The owner Graeme is very helpful and an excellent mine host! My only downside would be the public... More

We went here for a evening meal knowing that the Ben View Hotel has always been friendly and the food of a good standard. We were not disappointed, my venison was lovely and my wife's guinea fowl was beautifully cooked and very tasty .

Reading other reviews made me wonder whether we had strayed into the wrong hotel. We were booked in by our excellent B+B (Heatherbank in Strontian) and the restaurant came highly recommended. There was no one in reception and we had to ring the bell twice to get any attention. We were shown into the restaurant which was virtually empty -... More

Thank you for a super stay over the May Bank holiday. Very friendly atmosphere. Excellent food. Super breakfasts, especially Graham's Stornaway black pudding! Thank you Graham and team for a lovely stay. Kevin

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
