“A wonderful surprise!!!”
Reviewed October 11, 2011

We did not come to know about Gill's View thru tripadvisor nor other advertisments. We just stumbled upon this wonderful apartment while driving around looking for an accommodation. When we walked in to the apartment, we were warmly welcomed by both Steve and Michelle. It really make us feel like home even though it is just a day stay. Our room was facing the loch. Even though there were two small houses in front but the loch view was still fantastic. Inside our room with en suit toilet, everything looked new and spotlessly clean. The bed was super comfy. Breakfast prepared by Michelle was absolutely delicious. On the evening of our stay, Steve recommended us to an amazing restaurant (with superb mountain view) for our dinner. To those who are interested, visit Steve. :D

Thank you Steve and Michelle for the wonderful hospitality you have given us.

Stayed for 4 nights from Sept 24th and we could not have made a better choice.The room was tasteful and ultra clean as was the bathroom.Michelle and Steve were the perfect hosts with tips on restaurants and bars and they were on the money with choices.THE BREAKFASTS were unrivaled (and we have traveled) and the choice was outstanding-traditional,cereal,veggie and the best continental breakfast you will get!! Try to get the doulble room with loch views. The location was approx 5 mins walk-enough to walk the curry off. All in all it was a great place to stay and would recommend to anyone.

I stayed two nights at Gills View B & B.
On arrival I was welcomed by Michelle who was friendly and welcoming.
I was shown to my room which was at the back of the house.
The room was a twin (as I was travelling solo) the beds were put together to make a kingsize bed.
The room was a good size with an ensuite bathroom and shower.
I was impressed with the cleanliness of the whole house and the room and ensuite.
The bed was comfortable with quality bedding which made for a good nights sleep.
The furniture was top quality and the room was well co-ordinated.
Complimentary tea, coffee and bottled water was available in the room with free wifi.
Breakfast was first class you could choose from fruit, cereal to a full scottish breakfast.
Fruit juice and tea or coffee with toast was also provided.
The breakfast was excellent with a good portion it set you up for the day.
The room rate was very reasonable.
I would highly recommend this b&b Steve and Michelle were the perfect hosts I will certainly be back, more like a home from home.

Room Tip: The front room has a good view.

My review is a little late. My husband and I stayed at Gills View for 1 night at the end of August, with my parents. From the moment we arrived we felt so welcome! Steve and Michelle have a lovely home that overlooks Loch Linnhe and is just 10 - 15 minutes’ walk into the centre of Fort William (a bit more on the way back as there is a steep hill!). The two rooms are great – pretty décor, comfy beds, tea/coffee facilities, TV, bathroom with good shower and little extras like games and lots of local info; although Steve and Michelle are more than happy to help out with suggestions to your plans.

Breakfast - Mmmmmmm. This will easily keep you going until lunchtime. Served in a lovely dining room, there was fresh fruit, juices and cereal waiting for us, and then Michelle brought out fresh tea, coffee and cooked brekkie. If we hadn't had to leave to catch the Jacobite Train I could have lounged around for another hour!

Overall, you could not choose a better place if you are looking for somewhere small and personal in Fort William. There are so many places to choose from in what is a tourist haven, but Gills View is a real gem.

Thank you Steve & Michelle!

My wife and I stayed here for 7 nights in the twin room leaving on 17th September.The room was lovely and warm, very clean and the beds were nice and comfortable. The breakfasts were excellent and freshly prepared with loads of choice.There were lots of little extras, beer, wine and chocolate, given by Steve and Michelle which we were really appreciated. We would recommend Gill's View to anyone wanting accoomodation in Fort William from one night or more. Will certainly book again when we are next in that area.
