Caledonian House
Ranked #14 of 26 Fort Augustus B&B and Inns
Reviewed April 3, 2013

stayed for one night on a cycling trip between Fort William and Inverness. Bedroom was ground floor and was very comfortable with everything you would need. Carol was hostess with the mostess and breakfast certainly gave us the energy for the rest of cycling the Great Glen Way. Fantastic location for walking round the town

Room Tip: Downstairs room large and comfortable . Not sure what rooms with a view are like.

My wife and I have just returned from an overnight stay at this lovely b+b. Clean, comfortable, exceptionally friendly and with a fantastic view over the locks, loch and hills. Simply stunning. Substantial freshly cooked breakfast in the morning sets you up for the day. Highly recommended. Thank you for a lovely stay.

Room Tip: Room 1 - small but with stunning views.

I can't emphasise enough the warmth of the welcome you get at this Bed and Breakfast! Carol has to be one of the best hostesses in Fort Augustus!
The rooms are warm, clean and very comfortable. Anything lacking, just ask!
Breakfast is more than ample for even the most voracious of appetites! Served in a cosy, comfortable dining room. A very good location with ample parking and easy access to all the local amenities.. Very reasonable prices !

Our 2 night stay was just wonderful. When we booked on line, Carol e-mailed us to say we had the smallest room in the house, but with the best views!! We were not disappointed. Our room was nicely decorated & spotless, & looking out over the canal locks was wonderful. Carol's hospitality, service & friendliness was faultless, as was her recomendation of the local eaterys. The breakfasts were great, with a wide choice to suit our personal preferences. Fort Augustus was very picturesque in summer and the locals were very friendly. -The next time we visit Scotland we will definitely plan our trip around a return stay at Caledonian House & Fort Augustus!

Food great, staff friendly, good picturesque location but avoid room 5 very uncomfortable bed. The area is limited for variety of food outlets, but has a really pleasant atmosphere. Defiantly a short stay option Advice for owner change whole bed in room 5 and your place is a hit.

Warm welcome & plenty of parking. Our room was clean & had a beautiful view of the locks & the base of Loch Ness but it was incredibly small with an even smaller en-suite. Breakfast was hearty & nicely presented. Service was good.
I must say however that our bed was incredibly squeeky - luckily we weren`t honeymooners !
