My wife and I stayed for 2 nights in the middle of November and can't wait to go back.
This hotel, although small [only 20 rooms], offers residents comfort in well appointed, modern rooms.
It is in a great location, right on the shore of Loch Linnhe at the old pier.
The history of the building may interest some in that it was, in part, the village Railway station; and there are some great photos and memorabilia on the walls outside the restaurant.
There is a great choice on the menu, with something for everyone. The portions are large and the quality superb.
The staff are equally superb. Friendly, always smiling and helpful.
All rooms are Loch facing and some have a small balcony.
Initially I was disappointed that the bar area is set out like a dining area with few seats in which to relax, but that was before I found the lounge area on the other side of the corridor, heated by a log fire, in which to chill after eating.
Didn't get a chance to try out the swimming pool during this stay but it looked good and was well used by other residents.
There are a number of walks within a short drive (Glencoe Lochan in nearby Glencoe village and the walk to the falls at Inchree) and Fort William and Oban are within a 20 min and 45 min drive respectively. And plenty areas in between.
This is a great little hotel and in my opinion provides quality far above its 3 star rating.
