Great hospitality during our short stay in June 2022 and I have no doubt that the hosts would have changed the weather if they could! We were both made to feel very welcome and the breakfast is fantastic - some square sausage even made an appearance :-) Rooms were very comfortable, spotlessly clean and with soft towels that would put many high class hotels to shame. This is not an expensive boutique B&B with all the 'modern' trappings that you pay extra for. It is a fair priced B&B that caters for hill walkers and tourists or people travelling on business. It is friendly, homely and the room at the front has views of Loch Linnhe. My double room was at the back and whilst situated above the kitchen and owners living area, that was never an issue re noise etc. The location is just 5-7 mins walk from the main street in Fort William and yet the road is quite. The location is potentially an issue if you have mobility problems after climbing Ben Nevis and are unable to make use of steps! There is a flatter road/pavement route to the town that takes 10 mins. We were given good advice on where to eat in the town - Old Deli - and ate there 2 nights of our stay, opting for the Spice Tandoori on night 3 (very popular with the locals). Summary - great little B&B and very friendly hosts. Would stay again :-)…
We had a very comfortable stay at our 1 night here. Great location as very near to town but out the way on a quiet street. Had a great nights sleep and the towels were the softest ever! Breakfast was lovely too and had the best Scottish blueberry’s! Was very happy to stay and would most definitely recommend if visiting Fort William
We stayed three nights at this very welcoming and comfortable B&B. Nothing was too much trouble more like sharing a home. Breakfasts were beautifully presented and used good quality locally sources food. Poached eggs on salmon a favorite. Would be a first choice for a return visit to Fort William.
Fantastic B&B. Stayed for one night while travelling the NC500. Room was spotless and cosy, bed was very comfortable. Little touches like branded toiletries and crystal glasses made it feel extra special. The breakfast in the quaint dining room was excellent. Great views.
An amazing stay here. Fantastic accommodation - comfortable, clean and close to the centre of town. The owner was brilliant and very friendly. The food was outstanding at breakfast. Felt very safe here despite covid and the owner was very careful about cleaning etc. Would definitely return.
We stayed one night in this lovely guest house where we had a very comfortable room overlooking the loch. Everywhere was immaculate, the breakfast delicious with the best strawberries we have ever tasted. An easy walk into town and plenty of short cuts via steps. We can highly recommend this superb guest house, in a convenient and quiet situation.
We stayed with Ann for 1 night and had a marvellous time. The room was spacious and spotless, the breakfast was exceptional and the location of Gowan Brae is unbelievable- and has free parking! The house is 2 minute walk from the high street which makes it quiet and highly convenient. Thank you Ann for being a wonderful host. We will be back I’m sure!
We stayed here on our last night after having completed the west highland way. It was contactless check in but a smooth process. Good sized room for two people with a comfortable bed and good shower (which is really what you're looking for after having walked for so long!) Breakfast the next day was good too and very filling. The B&B is also close to the main centre as it's just a couple of streets behind the official end of the way so very handy. All in an good end to our trip.
We loved our stay in this beautiful house. We received a warm welcome from Ann on our arrival. We were able to park alongside the house, which is very convenient. It was a short walk down the hill into the town centre. We stayed in room #2 at the front of the house, which had a lovely view of the Loch. It was perfectly clean and very comfortable. We slept really well. Ann made us a wonderful breakfast which we had ordered the night before. There was plenty to eat and all very tasty. We were travelling around Scotland, staying at a number of guest houses but this was definitely our favourite.
This B&B has a wonderful location in Fort William, very close to local eateries and with a great view of the sea loch from the front. The check in was 'contactless' due to covid19, but smooth none the less. We saw our host, Ann, at breakfast. She was very friendly, attentive and helpful! Breakfast was extensive and we probably ate more than we needed but would always rather that than the other way around! Bed was very comfortable and room spacious for two - we did not have the view but as we were out most of the time we didn't mind at all. The only reason review is not 5 star is our en suite bathroom was a bit on the small side, and the shower towels were also a bit too small for me. Overall a lovely stay.
