“Perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

This was exactly what we needed after cycling the West Highland Way. We couldn't have asked for a better place. We had the warmest of welcomes. Everything was immaculate. The room was spacious and comfortable, the shower really good, the lines bright white and the towels soft and big!

The owners couldn't have been more accommodating. They made space in the garage for our bikes and let us leave our luggage with them until 3pm the next day. Even more impressive though, the breakfast menu did not contain baked beans so cheekily (and not expecting them to serve them) I wrote baked beans if possible when I handed back our menu choices. I was delighted to see they had actually gone out their way to get us beans. Perfect!

I really recommend this B&B to anyone staying in Fort William. Only a 5 minute walk from the centre of town and 100 yards from the old finish of the WHW it is perfect in every way. Thank you for such a great nights sleep.

After trawling the Internet looking at all of the B&Bs on offer in Fort William this seemed a cut above the others for the price and upon arrival we found this was definitely the case. It was immaculately clean and well presented, the finish in the whole place was of high quality right down to the Denby cups used at breakfast. The owners couldn't do enough for us even drying our wet clothes after climbing Ben Nevis - they were friendly without being imposing.

Stayed here for a night and what a great place! Spotless, and with everything I needed for a relaxing night including biccies which I tucked into before bed - despite having eaten a delicious meal at nearby Brown's restaurant - and then felt guilty about in case I'd got crumbs everywhere. Mildred was very welcoming and Craig was really helpful re bikes/the outdoors etc. Breakfast was tasty and fulsome. You really should stay here... it's GOOD!

My family and I stayed here for a night, and we found the place immaculately kept : really clean, crisp bedlinen, tidy rooms and general area, which were really important to us.

We booked for 2 rooms and while the one we slept in was just perfect : spacious and clean, the one my parents-in-law stayed in downstairs (also faces the main road) , they complained that the bed was slanting one side and they did not have a good sleep there that night.

Breakfast was good, and we were impressed with the WMF cutlery! Nightly rates very reasonable. Would recommend, just not the room downstairs.

The host was friendly and helpful. The room was large and a large bed and a very large bathroom although the shower recess was quite small. The cooked breakfast was nice. We found that you could not keep the window open because of traffic noise and this was a bit of problem because we were there in very hot weather. Once the windows were closed though the traffic noise was no problem.

Room Tip: We had the room at the front of the house with a king bed.

We had a wonderful stay at this delightful Guest House. Absolutely fantastic. Facilities are the best we have encountered and the couple who own it and run it are delightful. Cannot recommend it enough. If one coy ld award it ten stars we definitely would! It has parking too.

Our last night on the WHW having walked the 16 miles from Kinlochleven. An extremely attractive B&B, spotlessly clean, spacious and kept to a very high standard; run by a very friendly couple. Having walked the 96 miles of the WHW we were very tired so appreciated the very comfortable bed and the excellent breakfast. Highly recommend if you are looking for B&B in Fort William.
