This hotel is older and the decorations are a bit dated and worn. But the beds are comfortable, the rooms are spotlessly clean and the bar and restaurants are great spots. It is right across the street from the train station which is wonderful when you get in late at night on the train from Glasgow. The staff are charming... More

It might have been a really nice place ten years ago, but not anymore - thought the prices are still stuck at that time. Convenient location, but if can find something else, do it. They got the slowest elevator on Earth and no stairs

We stayed here for one night in June prior to a trip on the Jacobite steam train. The hotel is very handy for the station as it is just over the road. I would agree with most posts that the hotel is a little tired and in need of a bit of renovation. However, it is clean and tidy everywhere.... More

Hotel was nice but needed some serious renovations as the carpets were bare and the decor looked like it hadnt been updated for many years. My room was lovely as it had just been redecorated but the bathroom had not which took the look off it. My sisters rooms were very old fashioned and needed painted. The breakfast was absolutely...

The only reason I am giving 3 stars as this hotel is extremely tired looking and in need of upgrading. Our room was small but suited our needs.

The hotel is one of the older established in Fort William. The room was small with a nice bathroom except for some mold on the ceiling. The Scottish breakfast was an excellent buffet with lots of variety. The elevator was very small but at least there was one.

We stayed here this weekend for a night and really wish we had booked for longer. The staff and breakfast were lovely and situated right next to the town. Beautiful scenery too. Five minute drive from Ben Nevis. Lovely town and friendly pubs.

Stayed for one night on a recent visit to Scotland. Nice style of hotel but it is showing its age. The floorboards creaked when the person in the room above us moved around , our window which faced the carpark would not shut completely and the water pipes moaned continuously, which meant not much sleep. The staff were very efficient... More
