“Best B&B In Fort William”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013

We had a 4 night stay with Chris & Jackie at the beginning of September while on our mission to climb Ben Nevis.The first thing you notice is the fantastic views across the loch. We were greeted by Chris and what a warm welcome it was. We booked the Studio and were not disappointed. A lovely big room with its own entrance and more veiws across the loch. Jackie's breakfast was quite simply the best we've every had and the view from the breakfast room was wonderful. Such a relaxing way to start your day
If your looking to stay in Fort William then don't consider anywhere else. This is the best B&B.

Room Tip: The studio is the best room if you want your own entrance but all of them offer great views

Thank you GaryTip for taking to time to write us a review, we really appreciate it. I'm so pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us. We love the view from the house too, it is a constant distraction! We are always happy to hear that our guests felt totally relaxed and at home while they are staying with us. We offer breakfast until 9.30 so that you can have a bit of a lie-in if you want to. It was lovely to meet you both and you can be assured of another warm welcome should you choose to make a return visit to Huntingtower Lodge.

We stayed here for 3 nights in July and had a great time - the upstairs suite is fabulous, with attention to detail galore. Lots of helpful advice for local attractions / local fare, and the breakfast was as good as you can get.
Thoroughly recommended.

Room Tip: Go for the WaterfallSuite - you won't be disappointed!!

Thank you crustythefish for writing us a review, it hardly seem any time since you were here. I am so pleased that you enjoyed your stay in The Waterfall Suite, many of our guests really enjoy the extra space and privacy of the Suite. It was a pleasure to meet you both and I hope that it won't be too long before you are up this way again.

Spent two nights during extended visit to the Highlands. Lovely, modern house, beautifully and simply decorated; knowledgeable, welcoming hosts; great views from upstairs bedroom; excellent breakfast; overall, very good value for the money. Dining in Fort William is undistinguished, but be sure to take the drive to lunch or dinner at the Loch Leven Seafood Cafe--well worth the time and effort for a memorable meal in a memorable setting. Great walking in the area.

Thank you BACH for your review. We love our home and are always happy to hear that guests love it too. The view is beautiful and is constantly changing and I can lose a lot of time gazing out of the window! You are right about the walking, there are so many different walks to do in the area and there really is something for everyone, from a gentle stroll along the Caledonian Canal to climbing Ben Nevis.

We stayed here for 2 nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. Our room was spacious and beautifully presented. The bathroom was very well equipped and the public areas are very comfortable.
The hosts, Chris and Jackie, were really helpful in recommending restaurants and were happy to drive us in to town for dinner as it is too far to walk. Breakfast in so many hotels is really poor but this place puts them all to shame - the breakfast was excellent.
We also loved the the thoughtful little touches like the binoculars in the bedroom.

Thank you Stephen1717 for taking time to write us a review. It is good to hear that you were comfortable here at Huntingtower Lodge and that you enjoyed your breakfast so much. We are always happy to give our guests a lift in to town if they get a taxi back, many of our guests arrive by public transport and appreciate this service.

Spent 3 nights with Chris & Jackie and have no complaints. The room was immaculate, large enough for an extended stay and to top it off the shower was big enough for a normal sized person to use! The breakfast was well presented and better than some I've had in high end international hotels.

Both Chris & Jackie were brilliant hosts, even presenting my wife with a birthday card and bottle of champagne after finding out it was her birthday. Neither were obtrusive, but readily on hand to help. Nice people who seem to enjoy their business and like meeting people.

I have only ever stopped in two b&b's, both in Fort William and I've got to say the standard has been high.

Thank you Dave N for choosing Huntingtower Lodge as the venue to celebrate your wife's "21st" birthday. The Loch View is the smaller of our double rooms and we are so pleased that you found it spacious enough for your short break. It is always good to hear that guests are enjoying the breakfast and finding the rooms comfortable and clean, Chris is a dab hand with the hoover!

It was a pleasure to meet you both and I hope that we won't have to wait a whole year until the "22nd" birthday before we see you again.

Spent three nights with Chris and Jackie at the Huntingtower. Brilliant stay. All the good things mentioned previously in reviews are true. Fabulous reception, superb room, out of this world food prepared by Jackie herself. Lots of homemade preserves, cakes and not forgetting the porridge. Lots of local information from Chris if you want it. Lovely wild life to watch from our bedroom window. Room was very modern with super comfy bed, armchairs and of course bathroom. Everything you need. If you are booking a stay in Fort William, trust me don't bother going anywhere else the Huntingtower is the best. Thanks Chris and Jackie for a lovely stay.

Thank you so much Cutts for taking time to write us such a lovely review, we really do appreciate it. I'm so pleased that you enjoyed all the home baking, jams etc, I love to cook and and it gives me a lot of pleasure when our enjoy guests their food here. The porridge, a slightly healthier option than the full Scottish(!), is always a popular breakfast here at Huntingtower Lodge, it certainly sets you up for the day whether you are walking or doing something less energetic. We hope that we will see you back here again before too long.
