5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Having stayed here a couple of times before it's always a nice hotel to visit, rooms are always clean, friendly staff and there's nothing I can say to fault it. I would recommend this to anyone and it's a perfect place for heading out to the surrounding areas such as morar and mallaig.

Lady at desk (sorry can't remember name) kindly told us they had spare rooms n did not charge us anything extra! Was really grateful for this as the other hotels in area were more pricier or very dated looking. Decor wasn't modern but we... More

Very good hotel. Refurbished public rooms. Food and service in the dining room was excellent. All the staff were very helpful and obliging. We had a lovely room with a view of the loch (room 408) Could not fault this holiday - trip on the caledonian canal was excellent and the bus driver was very informative and helpful.

We stayed in this hotel for five nights. Our room was fine. We paid extra for a view of the lake which was directly opposite our hotel. The view was so beautiful. This meant we were at the front of the hotel which was on a fairly busy road so at night there was some traffic noise. We had a... More

Thank you for taking the time to post your review. I agree with you about the stunning view, we are very lucky to be placed right opposite the loch. We couldn't offer the lady you mention a shower hose that fitted onto the taps in case she scalded herself but hopefully she managed with the jug. Thank you again for... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. ... more   less
