Ben Nevis Guest House

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 10, 2013

We had an excellent stay at this warm and welcoming B & B. Our kids (aged 9, 12, 15) didn´t want to leave. Our room was a family room with 5 beds, of which one was a bunkbed. The room felt spacious and was very pretty and clean. Janet and Greame were excellent hosts and so sweet to our children. If you have kids who are the least in to Harry Potter, this is definitely the place to stay at - Greame has actually served some of the actors...! And don´t miss out of Janet´s porridge for breakfast, absolutely delicious!
Thank you so much for everything!

We stayed here 2 nights - immediately after West Highland Way and one night after going up Ben Nevis.

The room was very clean with a nice sized bathroom. Comfy beds and fresh, clean linen and towels. No common lounge area - or at least didn't see any other than the conservatory however we had a sofa in our room. Good library of books. Breakfasts are great - long list of items and you just tick away what you want...good quality breakfasts (esp black pudding/tattie scones/bacon/sausages). They have their own chickens and as such the eggs are great! Only met the husband of the house - very pleasant, right amount of chat (felt a bit sorry for him actually as he must have to talk about the WHW and Ben Nevis every single day...), helpful. Location wise - is about 5-10 minutes walk from the original end of West Highland Way and about 20-25 minutes from new end of West Highland Way (i.e. latter on the main commercial street of Fort William). I think it took us about 25-30 minutes to get to the start of the Ben Nevis tourist route. From our perspective, the location was fine.

No idea why the most recent review says terrible - certainly cannot agree with them.

Room Tip: Don't take cards - take cash to pay or use their paypal on website.

My cousin and I have just returned from a 2 day stay at the Ben Nevis B & B. As soon as we arrived, after a long drive up, we were greeted by Janet, who made us feel at home. She couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. The room was so clean and comfortable. Breakfast served by Graeme was delightful, all fresh ingredients, well worth delaying our walk up Ben Nevis for!
We can't thank them enough for making our trip to Ben Nevis so memorable and would definitely recommend this fantastic B & B.

We arrived and had a warm welcome from Graham the owner, interested in what we were doing and some great info on the local area and weather conditions. Lovely family room, clean and comfortable. Delicious free range eggs from their own hens for breakfast. Excellent location for Ben Nevis walkers and easy to find after a long drive. Costa the dog was also made welcome with some treats in the room for him on arrival :)

Kids kept happy with free wifi and good size TV

We will defiantly be staying again when we return to do more walking around Ben Nevis.

Thank you for a pleasant stay

Ben Nevis was a good B and B on the road to Glen Nevis. Great family room.
Clean room with great shower room. Close to the centre of Fort William (walking distance). Lovely hosts. Would recommend this B and B.

Very welcoming with excellent friendly service. Room was very clean and well maintained to a high standard. Top notch Scottish breakfast. On our second morning we had 'breakfast to go' due to an early departure which was also excellent. Thoroughly recommend.
