Croit Anna Hotel
Ranked #16 of 21 Hotels in Fort William
Reviewed May 28, 2014

Had a lovely 4 night self drive stay at this hotel. Staff all friendly and food as expected at a Leisureplex Hotel. Ample carparking. Room was lovely with a fantastic view of the loch. Definitely worth paying the extra for. Rooms at the back have no view to speak of. We were aware that there is no lift but a few stairs are no problem for us and it is 3 miles into town which would be a very lovely walk but we had our car anyway.

Room Tip: Book a room with a view. If you don't do stairs get a ground floor room as there is no lift.

The location of the hotel is just outside Fort William which is well advertised and if you drive is ok if not it's a bus ride or taxi to the hotel.our room was a superior twin which was clean, warm with good deep bath but quite high step in which my wife couldn't use due to disability,reception staff great warm welcome,informative,would recommend this hotel,only down side was the corridors to our room smell damp but they might just have been cleaned as they were very clean as was the hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony

Stayed at the Croit Anna out of necessity rather than choice being unable to book into my usual hotel in walking distance of Fort William town centre. The hotel is the the farthest away from the town on the A82 to the south which should be borne in mind if staying here, a car is a necessity to visit the town .

I found the hotel clean and comfortable if appearing a little tired and in need of updating.
( Who else puts sheets AND blankets on a bed still ? ) . The restaurant however does need some attention to detail. On more than one morning glasses for the fruit juice were not properly clean and the staff while pleasant did appear less than enthusiastic.

For food I can only comment on breakfast, and this is one area that needs looking at - Breakfast is obviously pre-prepared and kept warm for catering for coach parties on fixed dining times - the result is a quickly delivered meal, edible but much at the opposite end of the spectrum to master chef; In a full breakfast sausages and black pudding in particular were over hard and beans - well you had to look hard to find them.

The room was well cleaned and tidied daily but here again some attention to detail is needed. If I stayed on three separate nights the shower gel provided would be new each night, so why not for three consecutive nights ?. And attention to detail - the bathroom extractor fan would benefit from having the accumulated dust extracted from it.

Was it a bad experience - well no, just lacking a little fine detail at the edges and it was a good deal. But you do come away with the feeling that the hotel is happy to survive on repeat business from tour operators that it doesn't have to work hard for .

Room Tip: Not all rooms have a view of Loch Linnhe - ask if you specifically want one.

We have just come back from a coach holiday with alfa travel where we stayed at the Croit Anna. The hotel itself is not the best we have stayed at but the price we payed we were pleased with the standard.

Negatives; The food can be a bit hit and miss and the standard of entertainment is pretty dire.

Positives; Our room was clean and warm with a sofa and a balcony. The one thing about this hotel is it's staff, they are excellent and nothing is too much trouble.

A special mention has to go to Tony the waiter, I told him that I was going to put him on tripadvisor if he kept getting my order wrong. He really is one of the nicest people you could wish to meet and treats everyone young and old with the same jovial manner, top bloke.

Room Tip: If you need a triple room ask for 103 it is enormous with a balcony.

This place was very cheap and I was pleasantly surprised at the decent standard. The corridors were a bit run down however room was nice and clean nice big bathroom. Very friendly staff. Only other criticism is that I arrived at the same time as a coach party so had to wait quite a while to check in. Would definitely recommend if travelling on a tight budget.

Spent the weekend here for an reunion. Staff were superb,especially Jason behind the bar. Rooms were clean and comfortable and had obviously been refurbished . I recommend room 6' super walk in shower,beautiful view of the Loch. Ground floor ,so would suit disabled. Breakfast was good,full table service. Evening meals were a bit hit and miss,mostly over cooked and not much choice of veg. Rear rooms are built back into the hill,not much in the way of a view. Worth paying extra for front view rooms. For the price excellent hotel

Room Tip: Room 6,large room,walk in shower and view of the lochs n hills from the bed!
