“Fantastic place to stay”
Reviewed September 4, 2011

Stayed at Gills View after running the annual Ben Nevis hill race. Was very impressed, Steve and Michelle are so welcoming, the room was beautifully furnished and exceptionally clean. Breakfast was superbly cooked and all tastes were catered for. Thanks to Steve for the very welcome bottle of beer after finishing the race. I will be back!!

My daughter and I stayed here after completing 7 days of hiking, and it was the perfect place to allow us to rest and relax. The twin room was immaculate, with very comfortable beds and a great shower. The room had its own TV, as well as lots of little 'extras'.
Michelle offers a packed lunch option instead of breakfast, which was delicious, very filling and nutritious.
Steve and Michelle are very welcoming and flexible. You get the feeling that they truly care about your travels, and will do whatever they can to help you out. Steve even gave us a ride to the train station, which with backpacks was very much appreciated.
I highly recommend the Gill's view. You won't be sorry.

Gills View is a delight. Steve and Michelle are wonderful hosts - nothing is too much trouble. Our room was spotlessly clean, tastefully decorated and furnished and had stunning views over Loch Linnhe. The breakfast was a feast - beautifully cooked and presented. We regret we only had time for a one night stay. Highly recommended.

We were very pleased with our stay in Gills View. As other good reviews pointed out, the hosts are very friendly and always helpful, rooms are clean and quiet, breakfast very good. The house is quite new and although a little up the hill it is within 10 minutes walking distance of the town centre.
Doors not having a lock was no problem because one of the hosts was always in the house.
We highly recommend this place, it is good value for money

Room Tip: best view is in room on the terrace side

A very nice place to stay, easy talking with the owners who are very welcoming and open-minded.
A beautiful view from the house, a very quiet place with beautiful rooms also.
I really think we'll return there for the rooms, the quiet and mainly for the very nice couple who owns this B&B and who has been of great advice about what doing in the city!!

My wife and I have just returned from a week in Scotland. Stephen and Michelle are great hosts, very welcoming and helpful and really went out of their way to make this a brilliant stay. The breakfasts are really superb. Free wifi and Stephen even offered a welcome beer and gave us a lift into town when he was heading there. Brilliant value for money, we would go back again.

An amazing little B&B so much so all other B&Bs we stayed in after felt rubbish.

We were greeted with a warm welcome and walked in to an immaculate house. The rooms were even nicer, with a very clean bathroom. Free WiFi access was a bonus.

The breakfast was freshly cooked in the morning and made to order at the time specified, and it was a very big breakfast.

It is a very homely place, our hosts stayed in the same house, and we would pass them on our way out sat in the living rooms watching tv. Very welcoming you felt you could go in and watch tv with them! Both were very helpful too suggesting places to visit and where to eat.

One thing I would mention is that there are no locks on the doors, but was still very private and safe as one of our hosts was always in the house. I was surprised at having no locks at first, but actually in the environment did not see it necessary.

parking available at the side of the house. and beautiful views of the Loch
