Allt-na-Leven
Ranked #1 of 9 Kinlochleven B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 25, 2012

What can we say.. from the minty chocolates, great selection of biscuits and teas in the room, to the amazing showerhead (much appreciated after a long day's walk), and well equipped toiletries in the washroom, this place is simply great.
The wonderful selection of fresh fruits and cheeses for breakfast (in addition to a yummy full Scottish breakfast) was a treat.

This is a "four" star B&B which clearly deserves many more stars.

An immaculately clean guest house with comfy beds, en-suite shower and TV. Our bedroom lacked for nothing, there were even nail scissors and files in the bathroom. In addition to the coffee and tea making facilities, there were an array of tasty biscuits and mint chocolates. After a very hard day's walking it was an oasis of luxury. Breakfast was excellent with fresh berries, melon and pineapple in addition to the usual staples, plus a basket groaning with an array of baked goodies and toast, and the pack lunch was a generous and tasty one. The welcome and service was wonderfully warm - in short a walker's paradise.

Dear Patrick, it was wonderful to read your review - your comments about Allt-na-Leven being an oasis of luxury is very heart warming indeed. We aim to offer the best service possible to all of our guests but appreciate that our walkers need that extra bit of comfort after a hard day out on the track/the hills. In addition to all of the facilities we offer, we pride ourselves on our welcome and try to provide a service second to none. Please look us up again if you are ever in the area. All the very best.

We stayed un Allt-na-Leven - we arrived after a full day walking West Highland Way.
The rooms so comfortable and homely with loads of special touches with the decor as well as all the home comforts most hotels dont offer as standard. Breakfast was amazing and nothing was too much for the owners.
After a hard days walk it was like coming home, i would recommend Allt-na-Leven to anyone staying in Kinlochleven.

my family, 2 adults and 3 children ages 18,16 and 13 stayed here for 1 night whilst doing the west highland way. i wish we could have stayed longer! it is the best b & b we have ever stayed in, in fact it is better than most hotels we've stayed in too. to say that it is perfect is not an overstatement. the owners have thought of everything for your comfort and it is all top quality. the rooms are stunning, fabulous showers, wonderfully comfortable beds, fantastic duvets, even fluffy dressing gowns!!! the breakfast was mammoth and the quality yet again superb, beautiful breads, fruit everything you could want and all so fresh. the owners are really lovely too, very helpful and they have the most delightful wee daughter. we loved it so much that we want to go back there again to stay there and see more of the area itself which is beautiful.it really is just brilliant!

Stayed 2 nights on a short break away. First impressions were very nice and it just got better. Great facilities, great hosts and very clean. Great breakfast and option for packed lunches which we of course tried! Great location and views from our room. The sight and sound of the river from the room...perfect! Was only two of us this time, but was a great family room, so will bring our little boy next time!

My friend and I stayed for a night but would have loved to stay a week. Everything was absolutely perfect from comfortable beds (not always to be found) to food and atmosphere. The house was recently renovated and decorated by new owners. Don't miss it.

Believe the hype, this is by far the best accommodation on the West Highland Way or anywhere! As someone who has enjoyed a long and successful career in event management and conference organsing for some of the world's biggest blue chip companies I am no stranger to 5 start hotels. I have also travelled extensively in the Asia Pacific Region and around Europe and this is one of the best properties I have ever had the pleasure of staying in. Certainly on my recent West Highland Way adventure, although I was booked into some of the best properties on the way, this was BY FAR the best accommodation I had, so much that I did not want to leave. There are 4 star properties and then there is Allt-na-Leven. This property is simply faultless. I am not going to compare it to other properties on the West Highland Way or anywhere else as it is simply incomparable on EVERY level, decor, quality, service and food. Pauline and William deserve every one of the positive reviews they have received and I wish them every success in the future. I will also be writing to my holiday organiser to let them know that this property deserves to be first on their list of recommended properties in this region. It is always lovely to be surprised and delighted and you managed to do both. Many thanks and all the best to you both.
