As a solo traveler going by train this was a find. Your right in the train station and very peaceful countryside. You leave the car, walk up the stairs and your back on the train. I had no problems with the rail car, it was clean and very comfy and quiet. I would do it again.

It is an original place to sleep. You have the feeling you return 60 years back. And it is also the issue: everything needs a bit of tender loving care. The kitchen is well furnished. The trip to go to see the viaduct of Harry Poter red coal train is really nice with amazing landscapes.

Stayed here and it was a lovely experience. Staff are very friendly, location is stunning and the prices are very fair. Also easy to find and well just off the main road, but quiet. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to say somewhere fun and unique.

My elderly mother and I stayed 2 nights in early April 2015. It's right on the lot of the Glenfinnan Station Museum (a lovely place to wander through) and Heiga and her husband waited for our train to arrive at 6pm to show us in. There are 5 compact sleeping pods, each with a bunk bed. 1 of the pods... More

Stayed last night, we hadn't booked but were lucky to be able to get a room, linen and have the place to ourselves. Well equipped kitchen made it all too easy, worth the walk up the hill to see the viaduct. Dining in the dining car is worth it too.

I stayed here with a friend between holidaying on the small isles and travelling to the Commonwealth games. We were only here for one night, but it was a great stay. All clean, everything provided we needed and a great pub just down the road. Despite knocking on the owners door a few times there seemed to be no one... More

This was our third stay in the Sleeping Car and we will definetly come back. The compartments, kitchen, dining room, and the bathrooms are spotless clean and very well looked after. Having breakfast in the beautiful 50ies dining area feels like a little trip back in time. We always meet very nice travellers here, and enjoy chatting with them. It... More

My boyfriend and I had booked a 2 nyt stay in the sleeping car so that we could see all the sights and do a bit of walking. I have stayed before when I was a child and loved it. The place hadn't change much however it was manky and really needed a good clean, bins hadn't been emptied, dishes... More

We stayed at the sleeping car on a quiet November weekend when the other hotels and things in the area were all closed. Thankfully the railway car stays open all year. It was my son's 4th birthday and being a bit of a train nut we thought he'd enjoy sleeping in the old railway car. It is amazing! Old and... More

The train carriage hotel idea is fantastic and the station and the carriage itself is full of old world charm. Great to spend a night in to experience it but wouldn't want to spend many nights stay as rooms as small (naturally as sleeping coupes) and beds not as comfortable as a proper bed (but again that is to be...
