Situated directly opposite Loch Linnhe, you can admire the fantastic views of the beautiful surrounding wooded hills and mountains from this hotel. Along with the dining room and pleasant lounge area, all front facing rooms offer super views of the breathtaking Loch Linnhe. The comfortable lounge and ballroom host entertainment most nights, often with a distinct Scottish flavour which is perfect for unwinding after a day’s sightseeing or exploring. A number of rooms have been recently refurbished to increase the capacity at this popular hotel and there is a convenient lift that serves all floors. At nine miles long and over a mile wide and with Ben Nevis towering above, Loch Linnhe is one of Scotland’s natural treasures. The hotel is also just two miles south of the town centre of Fort William, known as the outdoor capital of Britain, and here you can explore the many small and interesting shops and museums.

This hotel fundamentally meets the requirements of ensuite sleeping accomodation. The sheets are clean and new, and the bathroom was clean. The view is wonderful ( if you have a room at the front ... ). After this, it's all downhill really - decor is tired and dated, pillows

Dear S1_812 thank you for taking the time to review your stay. I am sorry to hear of your disappointment. We are in the process of having the bedrooms refurbished through out the hotel including new furnishings, bed etc..., along with the corridors. All pillows have now been delivered and changed in all rooms to provide the extra comfort. The heating noise will certainly be investigated, thank you for bringing this to our attention and mobile phone reception is down the service provider especially being in the Highlands can sometimes lack the usual service expected. once again thank you for your review.
