“Best accommodation in Fort William”
Reviewed November 13, 2016 for a stay in November 2016
1
person found this review helpful

Myself and partner have just returned from a week in Fort William in November. This is our 3rd stay in The Moorings and once again we had a wonderful time. This is a beautiful lodge in a perfect location and in our opinion, the best place to stay in Fort William.
The Moorings is very well equipped, extremely clean and offers stunning views from all areas of the lodge. The open plan layout, modern design and superb use of lighting make this lodge look and feel very luxurious and it stands out a mile from the other accommodation in the surrounding area.
The owners Chris and Da, who live next door, could not be any more friendly and accommodating and offer great advice on places to go and things to see.
I cannot recommend The Moorings enough and as we have found, once you have stayed here, it is hard to find any other place that can compare.

“Beautiful house fantastic views”
Reviewed October 19, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Just back from a lovely relaxing week at the Moorings , the weather was fantastic for this time of year. Chris and Da could'nt have been more welcoming ,they can give you loads of information on the area if you need it. The house is spotless with very comfy beds a brilliant shower/ sauna and everything else you would need for the perfect self catering holiday. The shops and town is a 20 minute walk away , a taxi from Tesco in the main street cost £ 6.00. I would definetly recommend the mooring and will be going back next year.

Absolutely stunning place, the views from the front of the property, upstairs and down are amazing. The fixtures and fittings are finished to the highest standard and the whole place is luxurious. Located within walking distance of Fort William but an easy drive for those who wish to do so with very reasonable parking in the town, only £2.00 for the day. The stony beach opposite the property also has a beach shelter and seating/table facilities along with a fire pit, great for dolphin watching if you can catch the tides right. The owners Da and Chris were to meet us and could not have been any more helpful, thank you for a wonderful stay.

“Excellent location”
Reviewed September 8, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Everything was very good,clean and modern. Very good location for Ben Nevis and various other walks and tourist attractions. Only Complaint would be that on the front gable window on the top half there are no curtains so its very light first thing in the morning and late at night when you are in bed.

“A fab week in a fab place.”
Reviewed August 2, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We stayed in the Moorings last week and had a wonderful time. The property is fab and the views breathtaking. This modern, eco friendly accommodation is full of light and the spec is first class.
The owners who live next door, couldn't have been more welcoming and gave lots of local info on walks, restaurants etc. This is an outstanding place to stay and we will be back.

“Amazing stay”
Reviewed July 4, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Stayed here back in April and its the most amazing place. Chris the owner was so lovely and helpful. He made us feel welcome as soon as we parked up. The house is incredible and nothing like we've ever stayed in before. It was so clean and the bonus features (heated flooring, led lighting, sauna ect..) were such a nice touch! Its in a great location with beautiful views and the private beach is a bonus. We cant wait to stay here again, there's been so much thought put into it and we couldn't recommend anymore!
