My boyfriend and I stayed in one of the superior suites over valentines weekend and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The staff were very friendly and welcoming, the room was clean, comfortable and had beautiful views of the canal and mountains. This was especially nice with the snowy weather. The breakfast and restaurant food were superb and there are packed lunches available to order which were perfect for day trips. The location of the hotel is ideal for travelling in and out of Fort William and other landmarks nearby (we went to the Highland Wildlife Park). Would definitely recommend this hotel to potential visitors!

Room Tip: Superior suites were quiet and had good views of the mountains and canal

Dear Fi0na93,

Thank you for writing us such a great review. I hope both yourself and your boyfriend had a lovely time up in Fort William (and the surrounding area) over Valentine's weekend. The views from our Superior Bedrooms are exceptional, looking towards the Caledonian Canal and Ben Nevis, it does look wonderful when the snow is down on the mountains. Thank you for your recommendation and hopefully we can welcome you both back for another visit again soon.

Best regards,

The Moorings Hotel

we stayed in a superior room No 22 which overlooked the locks at the rear of the hotel also nice mountain views. Room was large bathroom lovely, bar meals were a little average for the price, didn't use the restaurant so can't comment. All staff are very friendly and helpful. The room had two single beds put together to form a superking, quite a comfy bed, very clean well run hotel

Arrived from Edinburgh to a warm greeting from the reception. Having asked for a late checkout on the Sunday, this was confirmed.. A friendly conversation, usual hotel chat then we were escorted to our room. The room was a touch dated but I base the room on how it feels more than anything. Modern rooms always end up looking horrendous. This room made my partner and I feel very much at home and relaxed - surely the idea? Nice tv and a dvd player as well as robes and little slippers. Bathroom was big and fresh too. Spent the evening at the hotel bar where we had superb food. Seriously impressive. The bar staff and the young waiter/barman were very attentive. I had the rib eye whilst my partner had the steak pie. Slightly pricey perhaps but (I've seen comments from people mentioning small portions) you get a lot for your money. We still managed 3 courses.

Not much else to say really. Bed was comfy, nice breakfast (no Haggis or potato scone though!) and the staff were ALL superb. Every member of staff we saw smiled and said hello. Not to patronise either but a lot of the staff were young and really impressed both of us. They genuinely seemed to want to talk to us and make sure we were ok.

Wouldn't think twice about recommending this hotel.

Great bed for the night and superb food in an absolutely beautiful location.

See you soon!

Martin and Jo.

stayed there for most of January with two work colleagues . couldnt find one fault with the hotel . and we all felt the same with the place. all the staff were excellent and very friendly, nothing was too much bother for them. stayed in a few different rooms which all had spectacular views and were spotlessly clean. would definitely go back.

Stayed 2 nights for the wedding of very good friends. The service provided for the wedding could not have been better, very helpful happy staff. The wedding breakfast,(lunch really) was super, cooked and presented to perfection, one of the best I've had. Had bar suppers 2 evenings, again first rate, also the breakfasts. The room was cosy and warm and well appointed. Could not have had a better stay.

Thank you for taking the time to review your experience here with us. Hearing that a Wedding went so well when it means so much to those involved is a great boost for us. It is wonderful that you enjoyed both your dining experience during the Wedding and throughout the rest of your stay with us. We greatly appreciate your review.
