We arrived by train, and were met at the depot n Spean Bridge by The owner of Old Pines at the station. He drove us to the hotel. I saw pictures of the hotel and setting before arriving,but the beautuiful pictures do not do justices towhat at you see from the hotel. Snow covered mountains, rolling brown/red/green hills, grazing sheep,... More

I stayed here for one night on my Lands End to John o'Groats bicycle tour...very expensive, considering it's a hotel and retreat I found the staff to be very unwelcoming and wanting to grab money from me at every opportunity. After cycling 100 miles, mostly in the rain, I arrived at the hotel and was shocked when the receptionist asked... More

My wife, daughter, and I left the United States to visit Scotland and traveled from Edinburgh to the Isle of Mull, but the hospitality we enjoyed at the Old Pines was second to none. We stayed 2 nights there and slept comfortably each night in the cozy but full-featured rooms. The food was exceptional, with rich full breakfasts and gourmet... More

The “Old Pines Hotel” is located on a lovely slope with spectacular views over the valley toward the surrounding mountains. The place is scenic, with a rustic "feel", very clean, with comfortable furnishings and remodeled bathrooms. Lots of windows in the public area offer amazing vistas. There is a restaurant with very good food and a comfortable lounge. There is... More

We holiday regularly at nearby Banavie and never fail to visit the Old Pines for dinner. The welcome is warm, the setting magnificent with views across to the Nevis range of mountains, and the atmosphere very relaxed in the cosy lounge area and adjacent restaurant. The food, although quite simple, is always a delight. The venison is a signature dish... More

Another super visit to a truly lovely hotel. Once again, my family and I were given a warm welcome. Tea and scones on arrival then a beautiful meal at night. The fresh fruit salad at breakfast was so fresh and packed full of a wide variety of fruits and berries. Yum! The surrounding area is outstanding and there are plenty... More

A five-star experience with individuality and charm. From the moment you arrive, you are made to feel welcome in a most genuine and unobtrusive way. Delicious home-made scones on arrival were followed by the most exquisite food and wine for dinner, all locally-sourced, home-made and served by lovely staff. Breakfast the following morning was just as special and the hosts... More

As we walked the GGW from north to south this was our penultimate stop. Owners picked us up from Gairlochy with our dog. We were given a family room to give us more space for dog and luggage. Dog was not allowed in the lounge but that did not cause us any problems. Food excellent as is the service. Packed... More

We stayed in this comfortable little Hotel in Spean Bridge the night before taking the Jacobite train ride in Northwestern Scotland. The hotel is most comfortable and the manager is most accommodating. The food in the restaurant was excellent. A very fine evening.
