Location in a very quite and isolated, small village. Good view and close to the main road. Hotel restaurant and Breakfast were both fine. The room was nice and well cleaned and maintained. We checked in late at night and had to check in at the bar which was very busy. It seems that its the only restaurant in the... More

Stayed there for one night and really enjoyed it. The room was a bit in the small side, but nice and clean and featured all you would expect to find in an inn room. We had dinner at the pub, food was good, too bad salmon was over. Midges are really annoying..... Can definitely spoil your Highland holiday!!!!

The website for this pub/hotel describes their rooms as “simple.” With this I agree and I have no problem with that. The site also describes the rooms as “clean and fresh.” Wrong. The room had a strong urine odor which kept us both up that night. There was no room for our luggage other than on the floor next to... More

Very low quality / price ratio. Breakfast is included, but nothing special. A child found a hair in the dish. Missing every attention to detail and I think rather tatty. I would not recommend absolutely

Looking for somewhere to eat after a day walking West Highland Way we came across Tailrace. Pub food, good atmosphere nice to see locals using it too. Very generous sized portions considering it was a meal deal of two mains for £12 I thought they may have been smaller. We skipper dessert because main courses were so adequate. Left totally... More

I found Tailrace Inn Clean and proper and with friendly staff, no luxury but for the good price very acceptable. The situation is very good when one wants to be near Ben Nevis, Fort William etc., because its often difficult to find rooms in Fort William. Kinlochleven is a very nice Little town

We stayed here for a night and had a dinner. No complains. The menu was long and Scottish breakfast made by order. Big kudos to the helpful bartender. He had already done his shift when on his way out he stopped and helped us to choose our next day hike. It was superb.

We enjoyed the laid-back atmosphere and friendly service at Tailrace Inn. Check-in is at a pub and rooms are above it, but we had no noise issues whatsoever. The food was good and beds comfortable. Staff were helpful even with hiking route planning. We were also happy to stay at Kinlochleven, which had more dinner options than Glencoe town.

Just done the West Highland Way Walk. The Tailrace is a nice pub but the rooms could do with a little updating. Bathroom had a damp smell to it. Plug was behind the bed with an extension lead plugged into it. Room was old fashioned. Staff and breakfast very good.
