Stayed here for two nights in June. Fassfern is a beautiful old house in a prime position overlooking the loch, we had a lovely room at the front of the house. The gardens were immaculate and there was plenty of off street parking at the back. At first the owners seemed a little bit abrupt, telling us to go and fetch luggage then we'll be shown to room!
Breakfast was well cooked but more choice and flexibility would have been nice.
All in all I would stay here again.

This is a very nice guesthouse in an ideal location for the centre of Fort William, which is within walking distance, it also has plenty on-site parking. The room was comfortable and importantly clean and the gardens were really well maintained. The breakfast was nice but if I was being ultra picky it would have been nice to be asked what we wanted for our cooked breakfast instead of it just being presented to us. All and all would definitely recommend for a short stay.

The fassfern is in a great location. Room was fine maybe on the small size. Breakfast room is fine. Service not so. I would like to be asked if I wanted White or brown toast and wasn't asked what I wanted for cooked breakfast . Plate just put in front of me . I would like to have made a choice. Also 8.15 to 9 very short time for breakfast.

Ended up here after the Myrtle Bank messed up our booking. I see that debpk77 had a similar experience! Still, we enjoyed it. Glad we got to stay somewhere else on our WHW walk. Good location on main road south out of FW but not so good for WHW or Great Glen Way. Good sized rooms, and breakfast!

I went here with my friend, who had booked the guest house online. Unfortunately, when we arrived, we found that our room, room 7, allegedly a twin room, was too small to be comfortable for two people, plus there were tow major absences: no chairs, which meant anyone would have to lie on the bed rather than on a chair, plus no wardrobe. In the event, we found another place where I stayed, while my friend slept at Fassfern. i cannot comment on any other rooms.Perhaps we were just unlucky, but i cannot in all conscience recommend this place on the basis of our experience of it.

Room Tip: Don't choose room 7!
