I have read the other reviews and agree completely with everything said. It is not possible to find an adverse comment. The Grange is so tasteful, comfortable and welcoming. Joan has such an incredible eye for detail that you find you are looking round trying to take it all in. We were in the Turret Room overlooking Loch Linnhe. The house is so well located that you do not see the other hotels on the main road into Fort William. You have a clear view over the lock to the hills beyond. On the window sill was a pair of binoculars. Every little ornament placed in the room was in keeping and a pleasure to see. It was never overdone. From the moment you arrive and are welcomed by Joan with a coffee or tea through to the unbelievable breakfast everything makes the experience a complete joy. I love my porridge and Joan's was again special. It arrived with a selection of flavours to add as you wished including honey and a small flask of whisky. I then had smoked haddock which was wonderful. My wife had the pancakes and bacon. There is one small comment which I think emphasises the attention to detail. There is ample space in the car park but to make sure there is plenty of room to get in and out your car there is a short miniature hedge separating the parking bays. It may seem a small point but to me it reinforced the amazing attention to detail to make the visit to The Grange a very special one.
We had our evening meal in Fort William. It was an excellent surprise and added to our visit. We went to a small cafe called Sugar & Spice where on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening they serve a Thai menu. We had king prawn thai curry. We love Thai food and this was as good as we have had. Don't be put off by the small frontage and utilitarian tables of the cafe.
