Like other contributors I think that th 2 star rating does not do the hotel justice - I can only guess that it is restricted to 2 stars because there is no lift to the upper floors.
On arrival as members of and Alfa tour we found the reception staff friendly and efficient. We had a room with an excellent loch view on the second floor. The room was quite adequately furnished but a little small. There was a hair dyer, ketlle and a TV with all the Freeview channels.
The WiFi is free in public areas but I got an excellent signal from one of the hotel's three hubs in our room. The quality of the WiFi is very good, unlike some other hotels we have stayed in recently.
There is a bar attached to the restaurant but stays open well after the restaurant closes. Bar prices are slightly expensive compared to bars in the town but the hotel is about two and a half miles out of the town centre so this is not unexpected. Bar service is generally good - as some others have noted the barman does double as a bingo caller for about half an hour each evening but there were always other bar staff. The bar entertainment was good - different entertainers for each night of our stay.
The restaurant follows a set weekly menu with plenty of choice generally. Breakfast was good as it is in most Leisureplex hotels. Dinner was enjoyable every night of our stay. Our waitress was suberb.
There is a bus stop outside the hotel with an hourly service into Fort William - the fare into town was £1-95 single or £3-40 return so if there's more than one of you a taxi costing about £6. each way is worth considering.
All in all an excellent place to stay in Fort William.
