“Very satisfactory”
Reviewed July 9, 2014

We stayed here for one night to give us break on a long journey up to Scotland and were very pleased with our accommodation. David was extremely helpful, carrying our luggage into the house and up the stairs, and took the time to have a chat with us in the evening. Next morning the breakfast was superbly cooked by him and it was also beautifully presented. The room was immaculately clean and the bed was very comfortable.Many thanks for a lovely stopover!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Fern Villa Guest House. It's an older picturesque building that has been nicely maintained and renovated with new windows, updated interiors and en-suite baths. Off-street parking is provided across the street. Rooms are on the smallish size, as can be expected in older buildings, but they're nicely equipped with a queen bed, TV, good wi-fi, an electric kettle, hair dryer, and an assortment of teas and coffee. A full Scottish breakfast is served each morning in a cheery dining room with individual tables, looking out on a lovely view. David and Catherine are wonderful hosts, easy to talk to, very knowledgeable about the area, and helpful in all respects. When our checked luggage didn't arrive with us, David even let my husband borrow a pair of Wellies so he could get to the places he wanted to photograph. Our bag did arrive later that day and was waiting for us in our room when we returned. For dinner, try the nearby Glencoe Hotel, which serves a delicious burger!

Really nice, spacious room and delicious breakfast! We arrived around dinner time after a long walk and the owners booked us a table at a local pub which was a short walk away. Really enjoyed our visit.

We spent two nights staying at Fern Villa and would highly recommend this to everyone. It was in a perfect location for Glencoe and the owners David and Catherine went out of their way to really make this stay like a home from home - also providing very helpful advice. The room was both warm and comfortable with a fantastic view of the area. David made the best breakfast we have ever eaten, including our first experience of haggis!! Great value for money and we plan to be back.
