“Warm people, excellent accomodation, great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

I've stayed & eaten here since 2006 and never been disappointed. The restaurant has a fantastic atmosphere. Nice log fire. Good veggie & meat options.

Accommodation - clean, basic, friendly & helpful. one of the best bunk houses I've stayed at.

“Superb food, atmosphere and location!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

We visited the Inn on a cold winter's evening in February 2013. We had no trouble getting a table, without a reservation, but the restaurant soon filled up. The menu was very varied, the food was excellent and the staff very welcoming. We look forward to visiting again, hopefully on an evening featuring live music next time.

“Great food and servce”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

Stopped here for lunch when passing through Fort William.

Location is fantastic - just at the start of the Ben Nevis footpath. To get there. cross the footbridge from Glen Nevis visitor centre. They have a closer car park, but finding the road to it can be difficult if you have not been before.

Staff are very friendly and accommodating. Food was well cooked and delicious. Will go back next time we are in Fort William (perhaps after walking up the Ben).

“Great lunch after a long walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

We have been here for lunch several times now and have always found it very welcoming after a long walk, the staff are always friendly, the food great, portions generous and beer cold! Only suggestion would be a children's menu.
