Right in the centre of town, very handy for the rail station. We had a big room, spotlessly clean, very comfortable. We were surrounded by roads but there was virtually no traffic noise between 11.0pm and 7.0am. Staff were pleasant and helpful. Very good breakfast. The stairs could do with some new carpet and a coat of paint but we... More

Hotel focuses on tour groups as its main clientele, rather than individual travelers. This comment based on constantly changing breakfast arrangement to accommodate different bus tours. Good staff. Needs plumbing work on none functional Jacuzzi in room. Instruction worn out on plumbing fixtures, only possible to have either freezing cold water or boiling hot.

On arrival was greeted by a most welcoming receptionist who helped with parking the car very close to the front door to assist our handicapped driver. Even on returning from a sight seeing trip she was once again on hand to assist. The room was very pleasant and clean, although being at the rear we could not have the window... More

Hotel is very nice and well situated for the town centre, local attractions and train station. The food in the hotel is very good and fairly priced but the waiting on staff don't seem to be very happy in there work and in some cases not very well trained. Bedrooms are clean and tidy and the hotel has good wi... More

I picked the Best Western Imperial as it is on the Square in Fort William and is the end of the hike on the West Highland Way. For a three star, it is pricey but the rooms are clean and comfortable, the staff are amazing and go out of their way to ensure your stay meets your expectations. The food... More

I stayed here for one night in a single room. I had expected the Best Western to be a more modern offering but it is rather dated. Not worth the money paid for a single room for one night. The car park offers about 7 spaces and I was fortunate to get one - after driving around for a while... More

The hotel is centrally situated but has only a few parking spaces and you may be lucky to get one. The price paid was over £130 per night for a double room including breakfast. The room was fine, very clean and with a nce view of the Loch. There is no lift though and our room was qute high up.... More

The standard double room was small but adequate. Lots of stairs and weird turns to get to it. There was no free parking by the time we got here- we had to park in the public lot. The hot water was barely enough and the pressure was uneven. The location is great, being very near the high street and the... More
