“Great guest house”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

We were recommended this guest house by friends. They were spot on. It was a lovely friendly guest house. Breakfast was great. Rooms were big and plenty of sockets for iPad, phone chargers etc. Nice lounge where you could help yourself to tea and coffee and mix with other travellers. The views were terrific. Definitely would love to go back someday.

Room Tip: Ask for a loch view. Beautiful

Highly recommend this one, from the nice greeting to the soft bed, clean place and beautiful views. Lorna and Stewart go the extra mile to help with anything you need. What a treat to stay there. I was travelling alone but felt right at home. Thanks for the map drawings stewart, I found my way to most places.

We found this by chance looking for a B&B on the spot, we had stopped at a couple of horrors but the minute I walked into the hallway and was greeted by Stuart and his happy welcome I immediately knew it would be nice. The room was spot on, the house is lovely and they have everything just right. Lorna was so lovely at breakfast and we have never seen so much food on the buffet table! A lovely house and couple, and Stuart's free tourist info service and hand drawn maps are brilliant!

This is a lovely B&B in a great location. We stayed for 2 nights and Lorna and Stewart were extremely helpful in providing us with ideas for exploring Scotland-down to hand-drawn maps. The room was immaculate and we felt truly welcome.

Very comfortable bed; lots of instant hot water; light and airy room; quiet location; excellent choice of breakfast very well prepared and presented; stunning views; very handy for the town centre and for Ben Nevis / Glen Nevis. The quality of service from Lorna and Stewart is top notch. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: We had two rooms, rooms 2 and 3 and both were excellent.

From the warmest welcome from lorna on arrival to our departure two days later we could not fault our stay . The room was spacious very clean and had every thing you could need plus lots of extras the extension cables with lots of extra sockets very thoughtful there is never enough And although majn road out side were not disturbed by traffic. The view over the loch from our room at the front was wonderful lovely to sit ( in one of two chairs in room) watching the sky change over the distant hills in late evening . Breakfast was fantastic with so much choice and delicious . Very handy for walking the short distance into town along the loch and plenty of parking where we were able to leave our car all day whilst making a trip on the Jacobite railway .
Would highly recommend you stay if you are planning a trip to fort William .

Lovely setting overlooking the Loch and only a short walk into town.
Our room was spacious and comfortable with a lovely big en suite bathroom. Breakfast was very good with a wide selection to choose from and set us up nicely for the day ahead. Enjoyed our two nights stay and would stay again.
