        • Family with children
          8.2

          All staff members were very helpful and one waitress in particular took a lot of trouble to sort out my gluten free requirements. The double room was a nice size, bright and had a lovely outlook. I'd also recommend the curry and pakoras served in the bar. Breakfast was well stocked but quality of cooked breakfast fairly average.

          The twin room was much smaller and the angle of the TV made it impossible to watch. Water temperature in taps and shower difficult to regulate.

        • Group of friends
          7.4

          I enjoyed the chance to see Fort William from a central location. The room was clean and tidy although a little cramped. The bathroom was very nice and clean. The staff were friendly and polite. The bar/library had a nice atmosphere.

        • Family with children
          8.2

          Reception staff Rooms were well designed/furnished

          Dining room staff - a little disengaged Only toast - no pastries, muffins etc No air conditioning no lift

        • Older travelers
          8.2

          Our room was fantastic with plenty of space, four poster bed and a huge bathroom with a spa bath

        • Older travelers
          9.4

          good location comfortable room

          Room 19 could do with proper fixed shower, This would make the room perfect

        • Couple
          5.4

          Location, free parking

          Breakfast very poor. Staff generally uninterested. No lift. The price for what you get is too much. Laundry was left in the hotel corridors. The main door is locked at 11pm and you had to enter then via a code on the door. This is not what I would expect from a hotel in this price range. The hotel feels like there is noone in charge.

        • Older travelers
          9.2

          excellent location just off the high street - also has a nice view over the loch

          some road noise from main A82 which runs alongside the hotel

        • Older travelers
          8.8

          Room was spotless, staff were helpful but their grasp of English was sketchy

          Breakfast was confusing especially since the waitress' accent was very difficult to follow. We are not used to having to fetch our own tea and coffee. As tea, coffee, toast, fruit and yogurt supplies were all pushed into one corner, getting to each was time wasting and confusing. Food was not hot, and became cold while we worked out tea and coffee arrangements. Disappointing all round.

        • Group of friends
          7.4

          The room were clean and well kept. Very comfortable.

          Externally the hotel has a poor appearance. But inside it was as good as I had hoped for.

        • Single
          3.8

          Elderly and less-mobile travellers should be aware there is no lift and lots of steep stairs to climb! I am 65, asthmatic and awaiting a hip replacement but was put on the top floor with 4 flights of stairs to climb with luggage. I was told no alternative room was available as they were fully booked. Also, my single room was no bigger than a box-room; the bed was crammed in behind the door and had views of a narrow side street. When I complained of no hot water, a member of staff came to my room to show me the taps had been put on the wrong way - the red dot was for cold and the blue dot for hot!

        • Group of friends

          convienient parking

          the location it is opposite a night club and was very noisy, making it impossible to sleep. Hotel needs to take this into consideration when applying rates. Also shower temp was tempamental

        • Family with children
          9.6

          Location and comfort in the Scottish Highlands. I chose it to relax before going on to the Isle of Skye. Scenery was Scotland's best and hotel was perfect for our needs.

        • Group of friends
          7.4

          it,s location for walking Ben Nevis is excellent. And location is in the center of fort William

        • Older travelers
          6.2

          Great location

          Can't help but notice everything is being done on the cheap, from toilet paper to tasteless breakfast bacon and sausages.

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          The friendly and helpful staff, The rooms are really bright and clean ours had a view of the Loch, really good breakfast to set you up for the day, really close to pedestrian only shopping area. They had an area in the hotel where I could charge my wheelchair.
