Avoid like the plague..... possibly get the plague if you stay here! .... owner has a problem.... rooms are disgusting .... food is 'iffy' dependent on the state of the owner when he cooks it...... such a shame as this place used to be so good...... there are some good bed and breakfasts in the village.... ask at Tourist office...

On a recent trip to Ardnamurchan we had the misfortune of car troubles outside the Ben View hotel. Graham, the owner, insisted on giving us drinks, calling local services and keeping us well looked after until resolved. So nice to meet such a genuine, caring person who looked for nothing in return. Thanks again and we'll be sure to visit... More

Arrived at reception. no one about. ring bell for service. then found a sign saying no dogs in bar areas, as no had one had turned up we left. The whole place looks rundown and unloved. They need someone to lokk after the reception and bar areas so when guest arrive there is some one to meet them

My partner and I were in the area and saw the sign for the hotel, and thought it might be nice to pop in for a drink or 2. When we walked in the bar seemed to be closed, but then the owner appeared and insisted on opening up for us. He was incredibly friendly and made us feel so... More

I stayed at the BEN VIEW HOTEL for several months with a few co workers while doing some construction work in the area. The work was a long hard day in wet and windy conditions, but getting back to the hotel at night was a welcoming and warm experience I will never find anywhere else in the highlands. The accomodation... More

I was recently in Strontian on a work trip, where I stayed in a local Bed and Breakfast. I was advised to come here for dinner and what a recommendation it was. The food was quite simply, superb! I had freshly made curried butternut squash which was absolutely amazing. The soup was well seasoned, and the right amount of spice... More

Graham went out of his way to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable, even picking us up from the pub at the end of the night. His full Scottish breakfast is unbeatable, proper coffee, nothing is ever too much trouble. A genuinely lovely, affable guy who makes staying at Ben View a pleasure. The rooms are basic but comfortable and... More

We were performing a show in Strontium. Graham couldn't do enough to work with our schedule, run us to/from the pub and generally be the most welcoming person ever. Cracking breakfast, comfortable beds and an amazingly friendly and helpful host.

We stayed for a weekend at the Ben View for a hill walking trip with our two dogs. We had only had one of the dogs for about ten days and he was really unsettled and a bit of a handful to say the least. Landlord Graham made us so very welcome and stated when we booked that he was... More
