This was our second visit to the Guest House having used it at the end of our W.H.W. hike two years ago.We were two septuagenarians celebrating our 50th Wedding Anniversary with the additional purpose of taking some of our son's ashes back to the land of his birth.We had a problem on the return descent. [Nancy had a bad fall on the summit and was also over fatigued.]The result was we never got off the Ben until after 10 p.m about 2 hours after nightfall.,.and that only after being helped by some very generous fellow climbers .Steve our B&B host, had become alarmed at our non-show and kept continuous contact with us by phone. He was there waiting for us in the Glen Nevis car park when we eventually arrived,.to ferry us back to the Guest House. Nancy had to spend most of the next day in bed recovering and Steve brought her breakfast in bed.When it was time for us to leave a few days later Steve drove us to the Railway Station.All of these "extras" were given us without any prompting from us or any reimbursement. The Guest House itself is beautiful clean and comfortable and although we are "awkward" guests [one vegan the other gluten free] we were catered for seamlessly by Steve and Cathy. In short we couldn't have asked for more from either the accommodation or the friendly and obliging hosts.

Hello Phillip and Nancy, Lovely to hear from you. We hope that your journey back home was less strenuous. It's always lovely to welcome Guests back as this in itself is a review that we greatly appreciate. Obviously for you guys it was quite an emotional roller coaster, but we are just so pleased that there are people out there that came to your aid. Thank you for your lovely review, and not to mention the Scottie Dog throw that you got us. It is very snug. Something we enjoy very much as does Domino. We very much appreciate you taking the time to write this review along with all your lovely comments. We hope that you are safe and well. It was lovely to see you again and hopefully we might get to see you return again soon. Maybe not to tackle the Ben this time though!! Kind regards. Steve and Cathy.

Yet another fantastic stay with Cathy and Steve! Couldn’t be more welcoming, brilliant hosts who always go that step further to ensure every stay is enjoyable. Even during these times of restrictions you are made to feel safe, but the personal touch isn’t lost. Breakfast is so tasty and plentiful. Our place to go every time we visit Fort William. Thank you Cathy and Steve.

We visited the Ben Nevis guest house for a 5 night stay, coming from Newcastle and using the guest house as a base to explore the top attractions from. Our time spent here could not have been better and the owners we’re a dream from start to finish. Everything that you need is covered and the rooms are absolutely spotless. The breakfast options are superb and tasty and the friendly, welcoming nature of the owners really helps set the tone for the trip. In addition to this; the social distancing and cleaning measures put in place are exemplary. As a base for exploring places such as Steall waterfall, Ben Nevis, The Three Sisters etc - this couldn’t have been better placed. Overall, we have had a wonderful stay and would not hesitate at all to visit here in the future; in-fact, we hope to!! Thankyou for everything!!

Hi Guys, Thank you for your lovely review. Was great to meet you and see that you enjoyed yourselves so much. You certainly crammed a lot into the 5 days you were here. Thank you for your kind and thoughtful comments, it's great to see that everything from the breakfast, your comfort, us and the measures we have had to put into place are giving our guests confidence. This really makes a huge difference to us to know that whilst you are enjoying your holiday, we are taking care of the other bits!! Hopefully we will get to meet you again soon, as you still have so much more exploring to see and do!! Kind regards. Steve and Cathy.

It was so lovely to stay again, Steve and Cathy always give such a wonderful warm welcome, along with Domino too and the guest house is so homely. It was a perfect t way to relax after walking the West Highland Way and the room was soooo comfortable! Everything was just perfect and the breakfasts were absolutely delicious, just sad our stay was over so quick. Thank you so very much Steve and Cathy! xx

Good room, we had one looking down onto the West Highland Way. Like another B&B on WHW, room information still available even in Covid-19 (much appreciated - e.g. we greatly enjoyed the Fort William History Trail the next day). Friendly welcome - even if we were constantly stepping back to keep social distance as host explained room facilities. Very much enjoyed our one-night stay.

Thank you for your great review. We are really pleased that you had a good stay with us, be it short but sweet. Glad you made the most of the information we provide, and are pleased that you felt warmly welcomed. Because of the size of our home, we are always conscious about giving our guests plenty of space, keeping at a safe distance but still showing you around as best we can, so we appreciate your consideration in abiding by social distancing measures we have put in place. Was lovely to meet you, and hopefully we will see you again soon.
