We looked at many places around Fort William and finally went for Cuilcheanna House because of their location, veggie option breakfast and pictures of the "Mull" room.
Everything about the stay was very good - excellent, (Except a few minor details I will go into in a bit, but I'm being picky)
Communication with the owners beforehand was excellent, they were very informative and pleasant, finding out on our arrival that this attitude was the same in person.
The Mull Room was as we expected, great views, plenty of space and a huge comfortable bed, the downsides to the room was the size of the bathroom (In my mind I saw a large lavish room, old cast iron bath and gold taps, in reality it was a bit on the small side which was quite cramped for a me and my pregnant wife), and the placement of the TV (It was impossible to watch from the bed due to the bed frame being so big; saying this the website states there are no TVs in the rooms)
The breakfast was great, very smooth service, all the food was piping hot and the coffee was brought out in cafetiere so you didn't need to wait between cups. The veggie breakfast was excellent with very good veggie sausage and haggis.
The pictures on the website could (by some) be seen as misleading as the one of the house was taken some time ago and looks a lot better than in reality and don't show the caravans next door but this did not ruin the experience at all.
We will look at going back if in the area again.
Marked 50/50 between excellent and very good, only dropped points because of:-
Location - Caravans next door and other houses making the views slightly less appalling
Room - The bathroom was a bit too small
Value - I've never paid £95 for a room before so wanted dancing girls and a firework display.
