    Centrally located at a reasonable price.

    Perfect base to explore Fort William, the Nevis range and surrounding areas. Close to bus and train station and in heart of town close to pubs, restaurants, shops and local walks. Good breakfast and food in the restaurant. Friendly service. Comfortable room and bed, large bathroom.

    Car Parking

    The stay at the hotel was great but it is a pity there is very limited car parking at the hotel. You have to use the car park which you have to pay for - which is not a lot but inconvenient especially if you stay in the town all day. The food and staff were very good.

    It was very good to stay for 2 nights only but i wouldnt like to be in the room I had for a long stay… there is no view and it feels stuffy. But short stay is perfect. All was clean nothing to moan about 😄

    Touring Scotland

    Fort William is a lovely place but I wouldn’t stop at this hotel again. It was very dated and in need of a major update. Our double bed was tiny and in need of a new mattress. Our bathroom made a foghorn type noise when the toilet flushed, the whole decor of the lace needed freshening up big style. At to top it off the room rate was ridiculous at £170.99.

    Room decor was old and tired.but clean. Breakfast was disappointing -porridge was more gruel and oats werenot cooked. Beans on toast was ordered but we were told to make our own toast and a soup bowl of beans was served! Surprised that it was shared utensils to pick the bread and croissants but no wipes or sanitiser to wipe down.

    Room plus and minus

    Room had view over sea loch, but downside was dual carriageway road which meant traffic noise early morning unless window kept shut.

    Great location, but hotel needs updated.

    The hotel location was great, and we had a room with a loch view, though a small window. We felt that the hotel was a little tired and jaded, and the plumbing was clearly outdated - we were woken each morning at 0730 by the 'groaning' of pipes, which could be temporarily alleviated by running the hot tap for a while! Evening meals were excellent.

    One night stop-over

    One night stop-over before going on the Jacobite steam train. Well located for the station (5 mins walk), and was able to leave car in allocated space until return.
