We stayed here on the last night of our 5 day trip around Scotland. We have stayed In Fort William a few times before, it's such a beautiful place. We called in and luckily got the final room available, room 1 on the bottom floor. This BnB was very clean and inviting and the view from our room was great....

The guest house was beatifully kept and very clean. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The view from the front bedrooms were beautiful and the breakfast in the morning was also very tasty with a good choice. It is situated very close to the town centre just a 3-4 minute walk which is good and the crannog seafood restaurant...

We stayed at fassfern guesthouse recently whilst we were up travelling on the Jacobite steam train. The guesthouse is well placed being a very short walk to the restaurants and bars and only ten minutes walk to the train station with ample parking in the private car park behind the property. Our double front facing room overlooking loch linhe was...

We stayed here for 2 nights. Very nice b&b with nice breakfast and views over the loch. It's located near to the town center where there is enough choice for food and drinks. We did the traintrip which we can recomment, but there are many other activities in the surrounding area.

Cannot fault Fassfern at all. Great position overlooking the bay, especially considering it was the cheapest of the ones we looked at, at least £15 so. The staff were friendly and efficient, breakfast was cooked fresh, made me poached eggs which was great. Parking at the back was ample, as was the size of the room. Some good information on...

Stayed there recently for 3 nights with my grown up children (first time in Scotand). Ideally situated. Beautiful view. Very clean and very comfortable rooms. Nice breakfast. Ample parking facilities. No hesitation in recommending this lovely B&B. I wish we could have stayed there for two weeks. I read some of the comments regarding the owner and find it difficult...

Fassfern House is a nice clean B&B on Lake Lhinnie, in easy walking distance of Fort William High Street. The room was big but lacked a hair dryer, otherwise everything was ok. The breakfast was good.
