Reviewed August 22, 2013

We were three very damp motor bikers who arrived for a two night stay in two rooms. On seeing the entrance we realized we needed to wipe our feet and Margarete guided us to her airing cupboard so we could dry our very damp clothing.

Rooms are very clean and have tea and coffee making facilities along with a small telly. Its a bit of a walk into town but we were given a lift on both nights into town.Set time for breakfast is 08.30 and you pre order the night before for the hot menu. Also available is a selection of cereals and fruit and yoghurt etc. Hot menu was really good.

I would stay again and enjoyed the homely welcome and clean facilities.

Stayed here while I was down to do Ben Nevis. Owners were lovely and so accomodating. Trevor giving me lifts to town, picking me up from the train and on the day of the trek. Good selection for breakfast. Clean, tidy and the room was decent size for a single occupancy and comfortable bed. The views across the loch were beautiful. 1 mile from town centre but doesnt feel it when you have the lovely views en route.

Fully recommend it :)

Nice b&b 2 mn drive from fort william. Double room with view on the loch. Clean, comfy bed and has eveything you need. Yes the bathroom ( shower and loo are in two seperate cabinets) is small but big enough. Breakfast is nice and a lot of choice (full scottish, smoke salmon omelette, cereals and fresh fruit...)

Don't stay here if you are likely to check in late. We were travelling all day from North Devon and got caught up in traffic jams along the M5/M6. When we rang at 8pm (an hour before we were due to check in) to say we wouldn't be there until midnight they refused to have us. This was a shame for the other B and B which our friend was staying at as we had to cancel their booking too at that point. It also meant that after a long day travelling we had to stop and find somewhere else to stay.

Just got back from our 4th year visiting Fort William for the downhill mountain biking world cup. we have always stayed at the Alt-an Lodge and love it every time! Margaret and Trevor are so welcoming and feel like friends. The rooms are always clean and have everything you need and the views are out of this world. Our friends came with us and it was their first visit to Scotland. They definitely want to return! We will be back again next year.

A nice little B&B with views of the Loch about a mile south of Fort William. Comfortable rooms with TV and coffee making facilities. The Hostess was friendly and welcoming. Breakfast is a good spread with fruits, cereal and a full fry up if required. Breakfast was served at 8.30am or earlier on request, but not later if you want a lie-in!

Room Tip: Its a choice of rooms, one with twin beds but the spacious bathroom next door, or two standard doubl...

My wife and I stayed here for 1 night while travelling through Scotland.
The B&B is located a little bit out of town on the main road south.
The owner was very friendly and welcoming.
The bedroom had been a reasonable size prior to the en-suite being installed but was now quite modest in size but still very functional.
The bed and bedding were comfortable and we slept well.
Breakfast was a very nice Scottish affair.
Although our room faced the main road we were not troubled by traffic noise.
The toilet and shower room are separate and built into two corners of the bedroom, one on each side of the window.
Because of the constraints of the window and door location these rooms are very small although still functional. The size of the toilet is reminiscent of airliner toilets.
A pity about their size as the workmanship of the construction is first class.
Would not suit overly fat people.
I would be happy to stay here again.
