“Great Scottish Hospitality, second to none.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

My partner and I booked a 3 day stay at the Innseagan Hotel through KGB deals during Valentines weekend and after reading some of the comments on here went with an open mind...

The welcome we got was very friendly from Alistair who showed us to our En-Suite double room which was very clean, fresh and warm, with tea and coffee making facilities and also a fantastic view onto Loch Linnhe.

We had arrived late in the day (17:30) and had missed the afternoon tea that was part of the KGB deal, we weren't really bothered about it but the manageress Alexandra (who is the nicest person you could meet) couldn't be more helpful and assured us we would receive the tea the following day, which we thought was a lovely gesture.

We dined at the Hotel on the Thursday and Friday and on both occasions the food was delicious and well presented, we had Steak Pie on the second night (the steak in the pie is locally sourced and to die for...mmmmm) she also placed two roses on our table which being Valentines weekend was a really thoughtful touch.
After our meal sitting by the roaring log fire having a drink was just the icing on the cake, with Bear and Sheila wandering in and out, made it a more relaxed environment and we felt really at home.
Bear and Sheila are Alexandras dogs who are very friendly...

Breakfast was delicious with a choice of cereals yoghurt's and full Scottish fry up, just right to set us up for the days sightseeing.

We would heartily recommend a stay at the Innseagan as the welcome and friendliness from Alexandra, Alistair and the rest of the gang was second to none. If you're looking for a home away from home with a laid back atmosphere...this is certainly the place to go.

Thank you Alexandra for a great weekend... we will be recommending your Hotel to our Family and friends if they are ever heading to Fort William, and hope to see you all again soon.

Jim and Joanne.

Room Tip: A Loch view is a must.

I and a fellow photographer stayed at the Innseagan Hotel for 3 days whilst conducting a winter photography workshop. Whilst this is not the most salubrious hotel the facilities are more than adequate for 3-stars and our twin room was clean, nicely appointed and provided exceptionally good value for the price we obtained on booking.com. We were made extremely welcome by Alexandra our host, who runs the Hotel. We planned to make very early starts, intending to arrive on Rannoch Moor well before sunrise, yet Alexandra insisted on getting up at the crack of dawn to cook a full breakfast for us .. I’ve not had that happen anywhere, and it was pretty darn good too. Unfortunately her gas cooker failed the next day so she couldn’t offer a repeat, but she really went to town putting out a fantastic continental spread instead, that even included olives and stuffed sundried tomatoes. To our amazement some other guests were quite rude when they could get a cooked breakfast, but the alternatives presented offered more than enough choice for us. Our trip unfortunately, was marred by an awful accident to my friend whilst in Glencoe and he ended up in Fort William hospital with a badly broken ankle. The Hotel staff however, were very understanding and helpful, and went out of their way to assist in the logistics allowing a late check out and another night stay if required. I really can’t fault their hospitality and wish to thank them all. The hotel has a nice lounge and a good fire was burning in the hearth every afternoon we returned; the water was always hot (even at the hour we started), and they had a good selection of whiskeys in the small bar. You can find posher hotels, with better facilities for a price, but you can’t buy hospitality like we received. What more could you want! A place I'd certainly return to.

Room Tip: Has nice views over Loch Linnhe and is not far from Fort William.

We got a voucher deal for this hotel, but if we had paid full price we would have left disapointed. Alexandra is a great host, the welcome and hospitality we received can't be faulted in any way. On Friday night we were lucky enough to witness a great jamming session with great musicians beside a roaring fire. Saturdays breakfast was good but there was a hand written note left on the reception desk advising no meals were available that night which is a great shame as we had been out all day and were looking forward to another night in by the fire. Our room wasn't serviced on the Saturday and we had to wash our own cups and go to reception to request more toilet roll. We decided on a lie in instead of breakfast on Sunday morning and despite breakfast service stopping at 10am we were invited to have breakfast when we checked out at 11am which goes above and beyond what is advertised. We wish Alexandra every success and with her hosting skills she will do well, but the other service aspects need to be looked at.

Room Tip: Ask for a loch view- it's a beautiful sight to see when you open the curtains.

Thank you for your review. I am sorry your stay was not as it should have been. Unfortunately I had had an accident and was in a&e for 4 hours in the afternoon and had decided to take the rest of the day off, so there were no meals made that night., there had been on your first night but unfortunately all guests chose to go into town. I apologise for there not being food on your second night. Also we apologise for not having a daily clean to your room but we only have 1 key to some of our rooms and as you had not left your key at reception we were unable to clean it. I had asked the locksmith twice to come and do copies of all keys. That will now be a priority. I hope you enjoyed Fort William and Lockaber and hope you would like to come again. I wish you and all guests a prosperous and happy New Year.

Had a lovely time in October when we visited on a short break,the hotel had just been taken over by Alexandra. Nothing was of any trouble,with all the staff really friendly and helpful. Accommodation was clean, comfortable and the open fires were very welcoming after a long day touring the area. Food was excellent and plentiful, that we visited again the first week in December with a group of friends. We organised beforehand with Alexandra if she could possibly do a Christmas meal for the group,menu was fantastic accommodating for vegetarians and others of different tastes. Well done !! to all the staff. Can't wait to visit again.

Having never stayed in Fort William before this was a shot in the dark. This hotel was obviously to run down but was recently taken over by Alexandra who is a great host and is really trying to bring it back to its best. It is a very quiet time of the year with most hotels empty. The hotel is clean and tidy with a clear view over the loch.It has a well stocked bar at reasonable prices although due to it being so quiet the food menu was limited. The best thing was in the dark and cold evenings sitting in front of big open log fire and toasting. There is big party arranged for Hogmanay with live Scottish music. If I had not already arranged my entertainment this year I would certainly consider a return.

Room Tip: We were in room 4 which overlooks the Loch. There are many others though.

The laid-back atmosphere was great. My 2 friends and I shared a "family room" and while it wasn't lush, the beds were comfortable, the room was clean, and the water pressure in the shower was fantastic. The walls are a bit thin... but we didn't have any problems.
The staff was very accommodating and though we were only staying for a single evening as we passed north from Durham around Loch Ness and back south for my Thanksgiving holiday I wish we could have stayed longer. The food was cooked to order on our schedule and very tasty. I spent much of the evening in the lounge by a cracking fire with freshly roasted chestnuts (I had mentioned I had never tried them). I could see this being a fantastic stay for individuals hiking or climbing in the area... wether a family, couple, or group for a stag/hen weekend.

Room Tip: Try to get a room with a view of the Loch. Our room was on the back side and had a view of the hill...
