Booked two nights and very much regret that. The room was dated, tired small and long overdue a refurbishment. Flaking paint on the bathroom ceiling and window. The carpets are worn and the bed was so uncomfortable and clearly worn out. The whole environment feels dated and unappealing. Had dinner on the first night there and all I can say...

We took my husbands very elderly and infirm parents for a weekend in Fort William and chose this hotel because there was entertainment on every night. The hotel was beautiful, clean and well (newly) decorated. The location was spectacular with views over the loch. My only complaint is the size of the bathrooms, they were unbelievably small. The staff were...

Had a 4 night stay here with National Holidays. The check in was very quick & well organised.

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
