We loved this hotel. It was one of our favorites along the West Highland Way. It is indeed rough around the edges, and some of us had rooms with shared bathrooms (not the end of the day), but its honesty made it charming, we thought. It was clean, rambling, large, full of fun people (mostly hikers), and with a fun... More

I camped next to the Kingshouse whilst walking the West Highland Way but made extensive use of the climbers bar! The food was great and reasonably priced - can thoroughly recommend the venison burger - and the company in the bar convivial. No direct experience of the accomodation but people I spoke to who were staying there had no complaints.

We were hiking the west highland way, and camped in the grounds of Kings House. Great area for camping with fantastic views. There were also lots of bar and food options in the hotel itself, which were all good. Dog friendly too. Another plus point was that they are happy to give hikers breakfast and packed lunches, even if you're... More

Only fair to middling.... ....but it was a place of refuge (the only hotel in the area) on our West Highland Way hike. We understand that this hotel had been here for at least two centuries, but can't they please make some improvements to their plumbing?? Here's an idea -install on-demand heating for their showers - at the moment, all... More

We visited the Kingshouse Hotel for a meal in the climbers' bar. The food was standard pub fare (we both had the venison burger) and the portions were generous. What made the place way above average was the staff - they were all very friendly & welcoming. The place was quite busy, but they went out of their way to... More

This hotel is in the most beautiful spot and it could be a little gem, but it needs a fair bit of work. It has a lovely big lounge with the most fantastic views and we had a great time relaxing and reading in there. The staff were very friendly and the food in the bar was good. Breakfast the... More

Visited here on way to the north of Scotland on an adventure with the family and stayed for one night expecting great things. Seasonal staff in the bar were rude and food was rather dear. Place could do with some tlc before it collapses.

We stayed at Kings house Hotel while walking the West Highland Way. Before the walk, I read that this was very old, 300 years old, and used to house a King's soldiers. I can see how ostentatious this would have been in the old days but no longer. It is very old, the rooms are small and old, curtains threadbare,... More

A very warm welcome to be had at this hotel which was welcomed after a long west highland way walk. The bar area had a buzzy atmosphere and bar staff were helpful . The food generally was very good. A good selection of wines and whiskey but don't be fooled by the cocktail bar name .. Cocktails aren't served! Breakfast... More

For locations, you cant go far wrong - very convenient for the West Highland Way. Place smells a little musty, services is atrocious - but it is fit for purpose if you need somewhere to stay which is ON the route. Temperature between rooms also varied wildly!!
