Im from malta and i booked to a b/b near Alltonside 6 monts before. I was veryyyyyyy dissapointed because as soon as we arrived She told us that the booking was cancelled. Thanks to Alltonside that she welcomed us to her b/b which was nice without a view but comfortable.

The room was quiet and comfortable, with an small attached room with a bunk bed for our son. The beds were comfortable. Wall-to-wall carpeting was outdated and slightly moldy feeling, but otherwise a basic place to spend a night or two. The breakfast was edible but uninspired- traditional English. Vegetarian option on the menu, which is always a bonus.

Altonside Guest House is situated on the main A82 road into Fort William about ¾ mile from the town centre with a great view over loch Linnhe. The room we had was clean and had an en-suite, both were very compact, but then, so was the £50 price we paid for the nights B and B.

Tea and coffee making facilities were available in the room and top-ups were available to help yourself to from a tray in the hallway. All guest rooms are on the ground floor. They have very thin walls and other guests could be heard through them. Overall, during the night it was very quiet. Only one room faces the main road and had a loch view. The others face the house either side and had no views to speak of, but then suffered no road noise. A good nights sleep was had and the beds were comfortable.

The nearest hotel and bar was a 5 minute walk along the road beside the loch; very scenic. Otherwise it was a 20 minute walk into Fort William.

My favourite element of the stay was the freshly prepared fruit salad at breakfast and the room price. It was a good value stay.

We stayed there for three nights only because Liz couldn't accommodate us for the whole week. The service was excellent. While we were out hiking the Monros, she found us a similar B&B for our next 4 nights. Her breakfasts were so tasty and kept us hiking all day. They start with cereal, yogurt, fresh fruit salad and orange juice. Her Scottish breakfast included a hearty serving of eggs, bacon, sausage, tomato, toast and coffee. It got uncharacteristically hot for Fort William, so she provided us with a fan so that we could sleep.

Room Tip: Rooms with a view can get hot when the sun pours in from the west in the afternoon and early evening.

This B&B is slightly out of town but worth the walk! We called up when we got off the train at Fort William for directions and the owners came and collected us (including dog!) brilliant!!!

When talking to the owners we asked them directions to the pet shop as our dog had cut her paws doing the west highland way and needed some hiking shoes - they said they were going right past and gave us a lift there too!!! Which it turned out was fantastic because I'm not sure we would have found it otherwise.

The owners also helped us out with ice for our loch-side BBQ and glasses too :-)

The breakfasts are fantastic and the landlady has no problem with extras )we were very hungry the morning after climbing Ben Nevis!) yum! I think the main point is that nothing was too much trouble and you rarely find that.

Overall a fantastic stay, lovely owners and would definately come back. Thank you for a wonderful 2 nights.
