I'm not sure if the couple who runs the place (Alan and Sue) were having a bad weekend but the way they treated me and my friends was totally unacceptable. It started at check-in. After being polite and greeting Alan who was in reception we asked if we could check-in. He responded saying: "There's a big sign in front, did... More

Hello Vitor, Thought this one might crop up. It's true (at 2300) I made some sarcastic comment about locking in the key. This after the normal full explanation about how to close the door and not lock the key inside. Some people do not listen properly and this was one of them! The big Enquiries sign above the reception area... More

The bunkhouse is a 10 minute uphill walk from the town centre with very nice views across the bay. The bunkroom was simple and comfortable and the communal kitchen was spacious and well equipped. Overall a clean and comfortable place.

We stayed in the alpine loft. Comfortable and cozy, even with bad weather. There are very efficient electric heaters and the place was warm in a few minutes. In the kitchen you'll have everything you need, excellent fan oven, lots of space. Beautiful sleeping room upstairs, with comfortable beds and linen provided. Very quiet. Perfect for families or group of... More

After we finished the west highland way, we wanted to stay at Fort William to have a look at it and to rest the bones and muscles.. 😖 Every B&B was booked out and the hotels were way to expensive. We just headed at the "Lime Tree", it was full (of course) but the Owner David asked the Calluna (friends... More

Thanks Don, See you again sometime.We are just upgrading the six bed flat, so it should look more modern and clean. New carpets throughout and more comfortable furniture in the living room. Better bunks as well. The moldy shower room ceiling is due some TLC as well! Regards, Alan & sue More

Once again Alan and Sue were great hosts. If you're after The Ritz, you won't find it here, but what you will find is a very welcoming couple, good comfortable, clean, simple accomodation. We knew what to expect having stayed before and that is exactly why we used Callluna again. Alan and Sue will quietly go about their business and... More

We rented a twin.. there was plenty of room for the two of us, the WC and shower were clean and next door. It was quiet and the Kimbers were quite wonderful with their communication. excellent value for Ft Williams, and far from the maddening crowds! I would go there again.

Excellent value, facilities more than adequate and a great location for climbing Ben Nevis and added bonus that Alan advised us the route to take for Ben Nevis and a pub to visit!

Very recently stayed in one of Alan & Sue's apartments for 4 nights whilst on a winter/alpine skills course. The apartment was basic but it was clean and comfortable, and provided everything that was needed. It reasonably priced for Fort William too, especially when you consider the extra facilities; laundry, wifi, bouldering wall, equipment hire, the best drying rooms I've... More

I had a great stay at Calluna, the owners were friendly and all the facilities were clean . The owners were kind enough to pick me up from the station.
