Good honest food and friendly service

Arrived on foot from Fort William. The hotel has a great canalside setting. Service throughout was very friendly and efficient. The food hit the spot perfectly - large portions, well cooked. Recommended.

The food here will wow and inspire your taste buds. Don't leave without capping your meal off with a shot of Dalwhinnie on the rocks (a pleasant suggestion by out waiter). Thanks ;-)

Food very average. Pate had no flavour and macaroni cheese tasted sweet and we were unable to eat it. Garlic bread still frozen. Disappointing.

Visited here twice for a lunch and an evening meal. Staff were attentive and busy. Our meals were fine but I could have wished for a slightly more generous portion of chicken breast. Overall we enjoyed our meals and would go back again.

To be fair the food was pretty standard - Fort William isn't the place to visit if you like good food. However, this isn't the place to visit if you want an atmosphere or indeed don't want to watch your will to live walk out of the door. We were sitting in the function room due to renovation works taking... More

We visited here several times as it was within walking distance of our Guest House. My husband is vegetarian and there were several choices for him. All well presented and excellent food.

A "two-starter each" lunch proved filling and inexpensive although unmemorable. Staff were lovely. Very conveniently situated next to Neptune's Staircase to enable immediate walking off of calories.

We came here on a Friday night after I had cycled the WHW in a very cold and rainy 24 hours. You can't imagine how desperate I was for hot food. The staff were pretty absent, and we struggled to get their attention for service. In the end my partner just had to get up to go find them. We... More

Nice place to eat not right in the centre but a short drive. No frills but nice food and great staff.

Morning Coffee and freshly made scones with cream and fresh strawberries, absolutely first class. A warm Highland welcome and excellent service, well done.
