Canalside Holiday Apartments
Reviewed May 8, 2013

This was our first stay at the Canalside Apartments in Banavie, just outside of Fort William. We were warmly welcomed by Frances on our arrival who then proceeded to show us around our accomodation the Telford Town House. The house was very spacious, modern and furnished and decorated to a very high standard. It is situated next to the Neptunes Staircase, lock system on the Caledonian Canal, with a small private garden with tables and fantastic views of the Ben Nevis range. This was booked at extremely short notice and Frances was very accomodating in letting us have the house Friday to Friday instead of Saturday to Saturday. The apartments are very well situated for visiting the fabulous attractions in the Highlands. Will definately be back!!!

This was our first stay at the Canalside apartments in Fort William and we had an absolutely amazing time!

We visited specifically to go snowboarding on the Nevis Range which was about an 8 minute drive away so we were perfectly situated. We were amazed by the apartment being so comfortable and homely, we felt like we had been there for ages not just 3 days! I would highly reccommend this to anyone.

This is the 2nd time we have stayed here and have already booked to return in 2014. The apartments are finished to a high standard and well maintained. Ideally situated just outside Fort William on the banks of the Canal with stunning views of Ben Nevis and walks along the canal make it a wonderful place to relax,
With boats passing throuigh Neptunes Staircase and the Jacobite Express ( Harry Potter steam train) at the bottom of the road is something special to behold.
Frances is very special and nothing is too much bother.
I would recommend everybody to try these apartments, guarantee you will not be disappointed.

This is the 2nd time we've stayed at Canalside Apartments and it certainly won't be our last. The apartments are maintained to an exceptionally high standard with lots of extras such as tea, coffee, shortbread and milk to welcome you on arrival as well as kitchen cleaner, dishwasher tablets and toiletries etc. Francis was there to welcome us on arrival and was only ever a phone call away if needed. Situated in an excellent location, with views over Neptunes Staircase and Ben Nevis this is an ideal base for touring, walking and cycling. Francis also provided a shed for us to store our bikes. Thanks again for providing us with a great base for our holiday. We simply wouldn't consider going anywhere else now when we visit Fort William

We stayed at Canalside apartments for the first time from 14 July to 21 July and so wished we had booked for our second week as well. Frances greeted us on our arrival and showed us everything within the apartment and how it all worked. It felt like we had known Frances for years. The apartment (Neptunes View) well all we can say is absolutely brilliant, all the fixtures and fittings are to a very high standard and all the little fine touches were appreciated including the complimentary tea, coffee, sugar, biscuits, milk, toiletries in fact we didn't want for anything. The views across to the Nevis Range from the bedroom and kitchen area is stunning and from the lounge across towards Fort William. We cannot recommend Frances' apartments enough and will have no hesitation in recommending the apartments to our friends and family. We will be returning again and have already given Frances our dates for two weeks next year as we left this morning. Thanks Frances for for a great holiday.
