A murky miserable night in Fort William was soon elevated after a visit here. Superb food timely delivered in ambient interesting surroundings. Quiet, welcoming atmosphere with great banter from our serving staff. Recommended.

As a former resident, of New York, I was amazed to find this french style tasting gem in the middle of Scotland. My family (kids in college now), pronounced it the best meal ever. Thanks to wilderness Scotland for including Lime Tree in our tour.

Excellent food, very good service and fabulous setting - even had a special table for people like us travelling with their pets. Everyone loved what they ate and drank. Exceptional experience - a great start and completion to our Outer Hebridean holiday. Asked for an alternative vegetarian main option on second visit and they obliged willingly (having enjoyed the ultimatum... More

Unfortunately after reading some great reviews on this hotel i have to disagree. This overnight was booked as a birthday gift for my dad who turned 67. As we were early for check in the reception allowed us to wait in the lounge area until house keeping were finished with our "room" Long story short our "twin room" was infact... More

This was a true culinary experience. I have had the pleasure of dining in many fine restaurants over the years, some of which, though excellent, have been very expensive, The Lime Tree provides a truly magnificent dining experience at what I would consider a very fair price, An average of £32 for a three course meal of the quality provided...

In August you need to book, because this place is GOOD. We chose Venison and Paris Brest and were delighted at the quality and sophistication. Situated across the road from the water, in a guesthouse this small restaurant has a modern interior, quiet lighting but not enough to alienate people with children. After sunset others sat outside to smoke and... More

Had a most comfortable night, then a delayed departure owing to a puncture. Delightful hotel with every comfort offered. Excellent for lovers of walking and climbing with expert advice. Meals are outstanding, real Laird's porridge inthe morning the best in years and I have porridge everyday. Hope to return again and have found a favourite bedroom, if i live long... More

On our way to Fort William, we ran into some inclement weather and had a flat tire and arrived at The Lime Tree at around 8:30 p.m. We checked in with little fuss, but was disappointed to find out that we could not order room service or eat in the restaurant. We instead went to High Street and ate at... More

This is a very clean bed and breakfast with nice rooms and great location near town. The restaurant is hard to get a reservation in, even if you stay there, but the breakfast is good. There is nothing fancy about the BB but then again we used it to sleep on our journey and did not spend much time there.... More

Absolutely loved our stay at this hotel. Beautiful room - we stayed in room 4 which had a great view of the loch with a window seat. The whole hotel is decorated in rich bold colours with artistic flair. Plenty of great artwork to look at and an amazing map room to sit and ponder or plan the next adventure.... More
