“Brilliant hostel, friendly hosts, great food”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

Arrived to warm welcome after day's slog through Scottish hills. Striking setting in a valley along the railway line, mostly surrounded by woods.

Formerly Tulloch station buildings, the hostel is well equipped. Facilities are very good - enough space within rooms, clean environment, couple of drying rooms, sufficient number of bathrooms, and a warm sitting room. Occasional trains passing by add to the atmosphere.

Our dinner was among the very best I'd eaten at any hostel. Excellent cooking, and more than enough for seconds, thirds... and a great dessert, too. (But make sure you call in advance if you want food!)

Hosts are very friendly - and can offer some useful advice about walking etc in the area. Even got up early to make us a packed lunch - something they seem to do often.

Competitive price. Strongly recommended.

After a grim experience at the Strathspey Hostel in Newtonmore, we booked into the Station Lodge and had our faith in hostels restored. The welcome was warm, the rooms clean and comfortable, and the meals (optional) very good and filling after a long day on the hill. Excellent value for money and thoroughly recommended.

This is a great hostel to stay at when you are climbing the hills around the Spean Bridge area. It's comfortable and great value for money with meals often being available at a really great price. The fact that it's on the railway line means you can also use it as a base for day trips to the Corrour area, which has great walking potential. I would definitely recommend it, having stayed there a number of times and always being welcomed.

A cracking little hostel on the train line up between Fort William and Rannoch. The rooms are all fairly big and it can be a little cold in the corridors at times, but when the fire is on the living room it's roasting. The kitchen is big and for those wanting meals it is a bargain.

What a great hostel. 5 of us were booked in to arrive at 7 PMish. We were coming over the hills in the dark and took a bit longer than we thought in the bad weather etc. Belinda who runs the lodge phoned to see where we were when we hadn`t arrived at 8. I told her we would be another hour. At 9.30 we still hadn`t arrived but I called to say that we were walking along the railway line and would be 20 minutes. Belinda rang me back to warn of a train arriving in 10 minutes so to watch out. We arrived at 10, tired and cold and Belinda and her husband sat us down, made us comfy and fed us. It was great, the hostel wa swarm, the food and company was great and nothing was too much trouble. I definitely recommend a stay here if you are in the area, looking for budget accomodation.

My first stay at Tulloch Station Lodge and I was impressed by the warm and friendly welcome from Alan and Belinder. Food was excellent, plentiful and reasonably priced.

The fire was always lit by the time we returned from the hills and the drying rooms really do what they say on the door (which is rarely the case at bigger hostels).

I'll be back.

We have been coming as a group to Station Lodge every February, and occasional visits in between. Everyone in our group, which numbered between 17 and 20 always felt welcome, and valued clients. Even when, on one occasion, after we phoned ahead to warn of our much later than we expected arrival, our hosts still served us with a two course evening meal at 9:30pm, and of the usual high standard. Nothing is ever too much trouble for them. When we come down off the mountains, the sitting room fire is lit offering the warm reception we need. The food here is very good and plentiful. My wife always questions why, having been flogging up mountains, I always weigh 3 - 4lbs more when I return home! A real hostel 'home from home' at a reasonable price.
