“Great spot, needs a deep clean!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2011

This is a great location with fantastic views all around and nearby. The sleeping space was damp and cramped. The kitchen is small for the potential number of guests and it did become very crowded. There is a lovely alternative in the dining car next door (season only). Overall the carriage needed a good clean, given this was a communal space a lock on the toilet door would have been appreciated.

The sleeping car certainly has novelty value, but it's a little unloved. We didn't find it in a very clean state - bins hadn't even been emptied from the previous guests or the toilet flushed. Beds are really uncomfortable, but that's nothing unusual for a hostel. As you might expect from a sleeping car, space is pretty confined - not a problem if you've booked the whole place. This could be a really fun place to stay, with a little more care and a good clean!

What a delightful quirky place to stay...a converted 1950's rail coach sitting right beside Glenfinnan Station. It comprises of 4 rooms (bunkbeds) and one room with bunk bed and double, kitchen, shower and toilet and TV room. It felt like a night in the far poorer relation of the Orient Express but much more fun..well maybe. More so as we had it to ourselves for the 2 nights. £10 a night for the bed. £4 extra for towels and bedding which is optional. A 10 minute walk (back road with torch) to hotel pub (open Friday-Sunday in winter). It was a bit cold and the storage heaters took a while to warm up but just put on more layers. Definitely recommend it for its charm, quirkyness, cleanliness and comfyness too. Don't forget to bring your supplies of food and drinkies.
