We arrived late with small kids, having been let down by another local establishment with no Chef. Graeme the boss (as we very quickly were introduced) could not have been more friendly and accommodating even though he was in the middle of low season maintenance works. We were fed very well and the atmosphere in the bar was lovely. The... More

Great food. Biggest haddock I've ever seen. Vanilla ice cream was stunning. Very friendly host and chef,made us very welcome. I'll need to go back and try everything else on the menu. No wonder the dog is so fat ! I would be too.

My girlfriend and I turned up at the Ben View to be told that we could have a holiday cottage to ourselves for the weekend at no extra charge. The owner Graham and his staff couldn't have been more welcoming and they regularly went above and beyond the call of duty, including keeping the bar opened for thirsty patrons and... More

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

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
