Property conditions & facilities



2/10 Poor

Such a disappointing experience
1. Inaccurate information of wifi name and password on the guest sheet and binder—2 incorrect wifi names that no longer exist 2. Unknowledgeable staff—had no idea what their own wifi name and password were 3. Irresponsible manager—asked me to check if the light was on the wifi router which is placed in the hallway, instead of checking up on it herself or sending someone to do it. I went and checked it anyways and told her the light was on. Again, no attempt was made to come to the site and check what was wrong. Instead, she said there was nothing she could do but calling an engineer who can come in the next morning since it was after 5pm (it was just after 5pm, meaning no internet service in my room for at least 15hrs). And she said there won’t be any compensation because wifi is an “outside provider” and the hotel is not responsible for it. 4. Unsanitary room—hair in the bath tub, a brown stain on the towel, blood on the wall, and a disgustingly dirty kettle + a HUGE spider under the sheet. 5. No reception in the building—Factor’s Inn & Cottage is operated by another hotel. You need to make a 15min round trip (or more if you have luggages or backpacks to carry) to the Inverlochy Castle Hotel which is a 5-star, fancy place. Probably another reason why staff is unknowledgeable and the manager is so rude, busy taking care of her own “luxury hotel” guests. 6. You need go to this hotel to check-in and pick up a room key yourself, so please be aware if you are a backpacker!

Spacious accommodation
Couldn’t find anyone at reception when checking in and out at the castle, but when I found staff, they were friendly. The accommodation itself was spacious and clean.

6/10 Good

We were booked into Factory Cottage. We chose this as it had the option of kitchen facilities. Two weeks before our stay we were informed that we’d been moved to Factors Inn. No kitchen facilities or even a fridge in the rooms. No apology. Factors Inn is dated and room 3 smelt musty. Toiletries are small so take your own if longer than a single night stay. The beds are very soft. Our stay was ok however we would not stay there again if visiting that area.

Nice stay but feels a little cut off.
You check in a Inverlochy Castle and there was a lot of standing around waiting to do so but lovely friendly staff and the rooms I saw if the castle were beautiful. You get your key then go down the road to Factors Inn. The building is just across the road from Ben Nevis so you can get a nice picture from the car park. Up the stairs to the room, and you enter into a nice large room with a bed, dresser, sofa and TV etc and 2 bathrooms, one with shower and one with bath. The sofa is a sofa bed and absolutely dreadful to sit on. I personally feel the two bathrooms for one room is overkill and feel it would be a better idea to have one of those as a small kitchenette with maybe a fridge and microwave in it as once you are in the Inn you are very cute off from the castle and it’s a bit of a way in to Fort William. I think they are missing a trick there as this would make them very nice self contained units. We were only there for one night so it was fine but any more than that wouldn’t have suited me.
