Stayed 10th - 12th April for my Partner's Birthday W/E. Checking-In, had to pay up front! should have seen the signs. However after the money was gone, given one key between us and allocated room 311. Unbelievable. I have stayed in a Travel lodge with more to offer than this. The view was of a courtyard / Square out of... More

Stopped in Fort William for the night on the way to Skye with two friends. We had a lovely experience at the Alexandra! Front desk was helpful, room was very comfortable, and the Scottish breakfast buffet is absolutely delicious! We were running a touch late and got to the dining room only a few minutes before the breakfast was scheduled... More

One night stay which was not pre-booked. The only room available was a twin which had two very small beds in it. The bathroom was quite tatty looking. The room cost £89 bed and breakfast but we do not think it was worth it. The breakfast was very good and made up someway for the room. Buffet style breakfast with... More

From the moment we arrived until the moment we left we found the whole experience fabulous. Staff were helpful, polite and courteous. Rooms were on the small size but had everything that was needed, including a very nice bathroom. Breakfast was first class with a very extensive Buffet Menu. Internet is not available in the rooms, but is available in... More

No change from previous visits. From the moment you walk in you are met by real professionalism. Reception first class,knowledgable and informative. Rooms are most comfortable with some overlooking the loch.I have to say one of my favourite Scottish hotls

We went on a heritage railway trip and the accommodation was in with the trip so we had no control over it. We arrived late evening and were checked in very efficiently. The room was ok, clean and tidy, but with no frills. The breakfast on each day and evening meal on one night were included in the trip. The... More

Nice hotel, nice staff, nice rooms, nice public rooms, nice food. Situated at one end of the shopping high street and opposite the railway station it is ideal for travellers. The staff are it's main asset they are or seem to be mainly Eastern European and so help full. The bar and lounge have some great military plaques and displays.... More

We travelled to Fort William for a weekend break on Statesman Rail. On arrival at the Station the hotel was a sort walk via an underpass. There were a lot of us off the train staying at the hotel and although the queue to get in to reception was large the dispersal was quite fast. Our room on the first... More
