    Lack of bells at reception desk and bar. Shocking T.V. reception in rooms.

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    From the outside, it looked "castlelike".

  • Group of friends
    5.8

    The lounge by the main door was nice & reception area was nice. Staff very nice.

    The bacon was poor quality & very salty. The rooms were ok. Our room had a poor view of roofing/ water tank! Would I go back?? No. Must be better accommodation for the same price or less.

    Location and soup.

    You can hear everything from all your neighbours.

    Paper-thin walls and a soil pipe from the room above running down the inside my room next to the bed meant that I got no sleep at all....and this is having asked for a 'quiet room'! Breakfast was inedible with a room full of zombies (presumably they were unable to sleep too?). There is only one good thing to say about this hotel and this is that it made me decide to leave the atrocious town that is Fort William and head further North to where the concept of quality and standards in accomodation is better understood. How the star rating of hotels in Scotland is conducted is anyone's guess?

  • Family with children

    Easy to find. Located just next to the lake. Not far from the centre of Fort William.

    Isolation of the rooms: impossible to sleep, when roomneighbors are talking, laughing.

  • Couple
    8.8

    Very friendly staff and good breakfast, good value for money, near town centre

    Shower not very good and room cold on arrival

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    Friendly staff - location - clean rooms

    Car parking not enough - eveing meals were almost the same every night

  • Group of friends
    10.0

    Lovely welcome, no hassle booking in, good room,comfortable,clean ans welcoming,excellent evening meal and a great breakfast

  • Older travelers
    5.0

    Only plus point is that it was close to town with parking on site.

    1. Original price before discount totally unreal for the class of hotel - much too high. 2. No heating in bathroom. Never had that before in a hotel in the UK at the end of October. 3. Paper thin walls - no privacy Could hear every word of the man next door when he phoned home (and he wasn't talking loudly). At some time during the night a very amorous couple seem to be having a good time, at least we presume from the sounds we heard that they enjoyed themselves. 5. The hotel was scheduled to close for work to be done just over two weeks after we were there so was surprised to be told that all of the tap beers/lagers had already been taken offline in preparation. Conclusion. Not a hotel I would recommend nor would I return to it.

    Friendly staff and helpful. Food in the Restaurant was excellent for both our breakfast and evening meal

    Bathroom had a strange smell - cleaning fluid type, which filtered into the room. view not brill, but then the price we paid reflected this, as only there the one night, it was fine

  • Single
    7.0

    The service was good from the Manager when I booked in on the evening, gave me all the details I needed. The front out the hotel, Bar, Reception, Restuarant area all had been recently renovated to a high standard, which was very nice. Food not good, but not bad either - just OK.

    The Annexe at the back is very noisey, thin walls, floors etc. Could not get to sleep as you could hear people talking, TV's on and people walking across the floors in there room, everysingle step. I did mention this at reception when I checked out, apparently the Management are aware of this and will be addressing this situation over the winter, I look forward to it..

  • Group of friends

    Nice hospitality, delicious breakfast , clean and well-funitured room made my experience impressive!!!!

  • Family with children
    10.0

    Strongly recommended. Nice loch view with mountains. Room is extremely tidy. We enjoyed our stay here & the staff were very friendly and helpful. We also had a very nice break fast too. I'm surprised this is rated just a 3-star hotel which looks like 5-star for me. A+++.

  • Family with children

    good location

    flood lights shining in bedroom window. curatins did not close properly. room a bit dated.
