“Excellent Food, Superb Choice and Service”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

I have eaten twice in this Hotel recently and for a small country Hotel was impressed by the choice of the Menu. The food was excellent and the staff very efficient and very friendly. On the first occasion they were very busy and we arrived close to their finishing time but there was no problem fitting us in and the staff did not make us feel rushed in any way. Thank You

Stayed for 2 nights on a group trip while visiting west coast. Hotel is a bit worn and out-of-date but food was excellent and staff very helpful. Good choice for breakfast and decent portions for evening meal. My room was fairly small (had a double room to myself), but comfortable and clean which is my main priority. No t.v. in room (didn't matter to me but may to some people)

Myself and my family stayed in Strontian in a self catering cottage for two weeks commencing 27th July 2013. we had our evening meal there on several occasions and we were all very impressed with the large choice of dishes (adult and childrens), size of portions, value for money,and how good the food tasted. We will return to this area one day and look forward to dining at the Ben View again.

The cottage was adequate and no more the main living room stank of wet dogs ,the double bed should have been replaced years ago .having said that the hotel does good food and the owner is helpful.The whole place could do with a refurb .Also no shower just a bath so bare this in mind .

We came here after finding the 'main hotel' in Strontian full for our evening meal - thanks to the customer there who recommended this place.
The hotel is pretty rough around the edges,and I wasn't really expecting much from the food - I was wrong. Proper pub food,proper pub portions,with proper Scottish/Northern service.This was our only pub meal in our week long stay in Ardnamurchan,we couldn't have hoped for better.

Am a bit bemused and baffled by these positive reviews. The place is not in good nick as demonstrated by the door handle hanging off the main entrance door. Took 40 minutes for our food to arrive. The chef seems to work a system where they cook everyone's starters first then the main courses no matter which table ordered first. Staff pleasant but would suggest they need to bring things on by thirty years.

We ate at the Ben View on 2 consecutive evenings as the food was so good !!! We stay in the area a lot and we just love the Ben View the service and staff are very welcoming and the food is to a very high standard and very good value for money in the Highlands.We would highly recommend if you are in the area (you may need to book in high season) The Steak and the monster Haddock are the best in the area for miles around !!!!!
