“Not so good”
Reviewed October 31, 2011

The hostess wasn't very "welcoming". We arrived at 8.30pm( after having phone ) and it was late for her.
The room and the bathroom were not very clean.
The breakfast was poor, orange juice not good..
The room was noisy we heard the others people....
The view through the window of the bedroom was a wall....

Checked into the Altonside for Friday and Saturday nights in October after walking the West Highland Way for 5 days. I'd do more research before booking here again. Reasonable value, but with so many options, I'd keep looking.

Pros:
Nice location on the Loch; about 1.5 miles outside of Ft. William.
Front guestroom has view of the Loch.
Well Furnished, cozy room, with plenty of heat.
Drying room for wet gear (very handy)

Cons:
Road noise (front guestroom)
Thin walls and neighbor noise (could hear neighbors conversations and alarms)
Damp water closet with a bit of mold and mildew.

Average:
Decent Bed, but nothing special.
Decent cooked breakfast (nothing special)

Room Tip: Front room seems to be the only one with a Loch view, though this is really a parking lot view and i...

A very welcoming guest house, overlooking Lake Linnhe. Our room was comfortable and ok but the bathroom could do with a good clean up. Breakfast was good. We had our evening meal at the Clan Macduff which was just a few minutes walk away.

The guesthouse, run by a family, match with the three-star ranking of the Scottish tourist board. We had a warm welcome with introduction ...BUT the wi-fi was really slow, we´ve heard everybody who entered the B&B (our room was the first one) and the breakfest was the lowest standard, even the fuill scottish breakfest wasn´t full.
All in all, it is a standard guesthouse which is comfortable enough for one-night stay except the breakfest.

Got a double room at floor level with a view to the loch with private bathroom.

The room was clean and comfortable (paid 55 pounds per night). The grandchildren did a little noise during the day and if it were hot and had to open the windows it will be noisy because there is a main road in front of the room (8 meters).

The breakfast was very nice and the owner suggested us to dry our clothes in the drying room for free.

Overall very good experience but will not recommend this room in hot summers when the window should be opened.
