This is NOT a hotel. I don't think they claim that it is, to be fair. It is a hostel. Still, even for a hostel it's beyond grim. The place is totally run down and either needs to close or be totally refurbished. It boasts an excellent location and it's sad that it's so dilapidated. If you like clean, comfortable... More

I was recently staying in Fort William to appear in a show at the Nevis Centre. Being on a working visit, I tried to keep my costs as low as possible and, between cost and the bank holiday weekend, accommodation was very scarce, with affordable accommodation non-existent, and I therefore booked the Ossian as it was available. It was actually... More

I stayed at Ossians for 3 nights on a solo hiking trip around Glen Nevis/Ben Nevis. It's incredibly clean and well maintained. The rooms are no frills, but stocked with clean linens and fresh towels. Great value for the price. Just what I was looking for. The hotel staff is very friendly and were great with local tips for food... More

This hotel enjoys a good central location halfway along Fort William's dreary High Street, a ten-minute walk from rail and bus stations. Yes, it's a bit decrepit, but not unacceptably so, and it's VERY inexpensive. I stayed here for one night to break the long journey by ferry and bus from Tarbert (Harris) to Glasgow and it suited me just... More

We spent three nights at this hotel in early September. Arrived by train and a five minute walk brought us to the hotel right on the High Street. Our room was on the third floor but there is a lift although we preferred to take the stairs. The room was clean, beds comfortable, beds made up and fresh towels supplied... More

This is a basic hotel, but it is absolutely great for what you pay for. Rooms are basic but fine, and all en-suite. The bar is cheap and staff were very chatty and welcoming. Hotel is right on the high street and hosts karaoke/disco on weekends. We stayed as our last stop on West Highland Way and probably would again... More

Stayed here with a friend for 3 nights when we came to climb Ben Nevis. After reading other Trip Advisor reviews I was a bit cautious of staying at this hotel. However I am pleased that I chose to ignore the other bad reviews. You get what you pay for and at £50 a night for a twin I didn't... More

This hotel is very centrally located in the main street of Fort William. As they admit on the hotel website, there is nothing fancy about this place - the rooms are certainly small and basic - but it is relatively cheap. They warn you about noise from the disco at weekends but we weren't bothered in a front room on... More

If you like rooms that are just bigger than a prison cell, tiny single beds that creak all night with the slightest movement etc then this is the place for you! We stayed here before starting the Great Glen Way, £50 for a basic twin with no breakfast was a wee bit expensive but it was clean and the staff... More
