“Fantastic location, great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013

Amazing view of Ben Nevis from bedroom. Excellent comfy room and lovely breakfast, very friendly and helpful hostess. Quiet and peaceful location, not far from town centre, midway between station and Neptune's Staircase on the Caledonian canal. Served by fairly frequent bus from town. Great place to stay.

The rustic view is a lovely B&B where you will feel really well looked after. The room had a great view and was extremely clean and comfortable. Jackie was wonderful, booked us a table at a popular restaurant for dinner, gave us several lifts into the centre since we didn't have a car, and was generally very attentive. We have only good things to say about our stay!

Lovely overnight stay with the wonderful Jackie who really cares for her guests. This included dropping us and picking us up from the hotel/pub where we had our evening meal.

Quiet location with a fantastic view of Ben Nevis as you can see from the attached.

Comfortable beds and lots of nice touches that you don't always see in all B&Bs

Jackie is also highly cycle friendly so if you are on LEJOG or JOGLE you are sure of a welcome!

Lovely peaceful accomodation, spotlessly clean. Jackie is a wonderfull, bubbly hostess who goes out of her way to ensure that your stay is perfect. We arrived on our mototbike after a long and very wet ride. Before we knew it, the garage was opened for us and old towels provided for us and the bike, wonderfull!
If you are thinking of staying in the area, don't bother looking any further than Rustic View, you'll not find better.

My fiancé and I came to stay here for two nights and I can say with confidence that if we're ever up that way again, we'd always have to stay with Jackie at Rustic View!

Jackie is the jewel in the crown of this place. Yes, the nice rooms are very nice. Yes, the bathroom was clean and smart with nice products and a good shower. Yes, there are simply wonderful views of Ben Nevis from the breakfast room. Yes, the breakfasts are beautifully done (and there's great choice too). BUT, above all else, Jackie is an absolute joy to stay with.

Such warmth and kindness make a massive difference to a stay somewhere. I was lucky enough to be proposed to on the summit of Ben Nevis and the congratulations from Jackie were so heartfelt and kind, we felt like we'd known her for ages! (Jackie - thanks for the hug despite being in a post-Ben Nevis sweaty state!! Definitely above and beyond the call of duty!).

All in all, we couldn't have asked for more from our stay in Fort William. Places like this deserve to thrive!

Have stayed in several Scottish B&Bs and this is by far the best. First place in UK to offer a washcloth. Great bathrooms. Wonderful breakfasts in great sun room. Jackie is bend-over-backwards hostess with the mostest. Most highly recommended if you are staying in Ft. William.

A really lovely, clean, friendly guest house perfectly located to explore Fort William. We had a lovely warm welcome from Jackie,who is very nice! Always willing to give great advice to make your holiday the best possible. The room was spotless and very well presented, with good facilities like TV, shower gel, shampoo, conditioner, hair dryer, hand wash, hand cream and coffee and tea with few biscuits :)
