Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We arrived at Burnlea House after a 10 hour drive. Steph (owner) met us on arrival and took us straight to our room. The room was lovely, we had a loch view. It was very spacious and very clean. We also took our dog with us and she had a very good welcome too. Linda (owner) came out with treats for our dog which I thought was a lovely touch. Breakfast was amazing. Porridge to start then a full english breakfast which was very large and very nice. Tea, toast, and fresh orange juice and also fruit was avaliable if we wanted it. Every day Steph took the time to ask about what we had planned for the day and helped us with routes and places to see along the way. Nothing was to much trouble. We really enjoyed our trip and stay in Scotland. Steph and linda were great hosts. I would definaltly go back next time we plan a visit to Scotland. I would recommend for my friends and family to stay at Burnlea house if they were to visit Scotland. I have never stayed in a bed and breakfast before so didn't really know what to expect so was very pleasently surprised staying there. A big thank you to Steph and Linda for making our stay so nice and comfortable. We will be back.

I enjoyed a lovely couple of days at Burnlea. A wonderful location alongside the Loch, warm hospitality, the most generous breakfast you could wish for (I kid you not!), and the most helpful hosts -picked me up and returned me to the railway station, and gave me such helpful advice about how to the most of my short time in the Highlands. Highly recommended!

Stopped here for a few days and was not disappointed. Really friendly owners who gave lots of useful advice on local attractions, great rooms with excellent views and the biggest and best breakfast ever. About 20 minutes scenic walk from centre of town where restaurants are pretty good.

I think it's probably just as well that we have not stayed here, if our experience of cancelling a reservation is anything to go by. We had booked for 4 of us to stay here for 2 nights, amended to 3 nights, in May. The booking was one step in a complex itinerary, involving 2 American friends, and taking in Mull, Skye and the Highlands. A family illness and bereavement meant that the trip was arranged very late, at the end of March. When we made the reservation, the landlady was sweetness and light - immediate email acknowledgement, promise of a warm welcome and so on. We emailed a few days later to cancel the booking, apologising for the inconvenience, and asking for an acknowledgement in the interest of clarity. We heard nothing for 4 weeks, despite two further emails asking for confirmation. This morning, a couple of days before leaving for Scotland, my wife phoned to check that the cancellation had been received, and was subjected to a tirade from the landlady, who then slammed the phone down. Welcome to Scotland indeed! There followed a series of emails, which can only be described as an outpouring of bile from the landlady, which included the following gems: "You booked all our rooms for 2 nights; then rang and changed that to 3 nights, then cancelled because you'd changed your minds. Thereafter, your only concern was to call upon your booking 'rights' and to expect me to 'acknowledge' your cancellation email. Imagine that I had, instead, sent you a 'cancellation' email and demanded that you email me acknowledging the cancellation while, probably, you would be frantically looking for another accommodation. I suspect we wouldn't have heard the last from you. And now you bother me again by telephoning; then send a pompous and self-righteous email. Your email below eminently illustrates your selfish and entirely self-centred approach to other people; absolutely no regard for anyone but yourselves." This B&B's booking conditions allow cancellation, without penalty, up to1 day before arrival. We had given about 6 weeks' notice. We had had to cancel another booking, as part of the same itinerary changes, and received an immediate, polite acknowledgement by email. We have never experienced anything approaching this behaviour before, and sincerely hope that we never do again. The spirit of Basil Fawlty appears to be alive, well, female and living in Fort William!

This place is a hidden gem. A warm welcome by Stephanie. Rooms were a very pleasant surprise with massive beds. We sat with our friends in the master suite overlooking a very fine cloud covered hill over the loch drinking scotch and a good red. Excellent breakfast with friendly service. Lovely people and a great place to stay within walking distance to town.

My father and I stayed here for one night on our way to the Isle of Skye. My father is 85 and partially disabled so l had been very careful to ask about the access to the guest house when I booked. On arrival I found that there was a very steep drive and a long set of steps up to the front door. So it was very difficult to get Dad out of the car and into the guest house. We should have turned round and left right away for the worst was yet to come. I asked the land lady about the safety of my car on the steep drive as I was concerned about my cars brakes. She was not pleased and not beenat all welcoming, in fact the she was very rude and burst into our room and shouted at us, saying if we weren't happy we could leave. If it had not been so late we would have left immediately, but where was I going to find another room for my disabled father at that time of day.

We had a lovely time and our host Stephanie and Linda were great! Very nice and helpful. The breakfast was great and plentiful. They also took time to give us advice in regards to things to do in Fort William. I highly recommend this place. The B&B is located within about 15 minutes walk from the town centre and has some fantastic views of the loch!

I loved my my stay at the Burnlea! My friends and I were greeted with a warm welcome from Stephanie and Linda who gave us some delicious homebaking. The B&B was very clean and had everything you would need for a trip away, the beds were comfy, there were fresh towels, warm showers, a hairdryer, a selections of books and scenic views of the Loch Linnhe. A great quality of the accommodation is the lounge area for guests to socialize and Linda and Stephanie made sure we had everything we needed. There was a good selection of cereals, yogurt and fruit for breakfast which I thought was plenty but then they prepared a great cooked breakfast and even insisted on going out of their way to get rolls for Sunday morning and we were even offered seconds. Stephanie and Linda are two genuinely friendly people and very generous, its hard to explain in writing just how welcoming they are so I would encourage you to stay at the Burnlea when you are visiting Fort William to experience their fantastic hospitality for yourselves.

On our recent trip to Scotland we stayed at 7 different B&Bs. We spent 3 nights here and wish we'd stayed here the entire trip. The bedroom was large with a big, comfy bed and a large en suite bathroom with tub - everything very clean. We also had a beautiful view of the Loch. The owners were friendly and really helpful with travel arrangements -- thankfully they helped us make our reservations for the ferry to Skye or we might have had a long wait! The breakfasts were so generous we didn't need lunch. Loved all the artwork as well. Great place!

My friends and stayed at Burnlea Bed and Breakfast on 1 and 2 July as we were taking part in the Great Glencoe challenge. We absolutely loved it and were blown away by the hospitality of the owners Stephanie and Linda. For example when we arrived they welcomed us with huge smiles and a tray of filtered coffee, tea and biscuits. What more can you ask for after a long journey? The next morning they prepared a huge tasty cooked breakfast and offered to get us morning rolls for breakfast on the Sunday (Stephanie duly ran out to get these rolls despite our protestations not to bother!). All in all they are friendliest, most helpful B&B owners that we have ever met and their hospitality was matched by the quality and cleanliness of the accommodation. One of the rooms was ensuite and had amazing views of Loch Linnhe, the other had a spacious bathroom with shower right next to it. Both rooms had comfy beds, were spotlessly clean and we were impressed with the little common area where you could have a coffee or beer before bed. We would strongly recommend Burnlea B&B to people visiting Fort William as not only will you get a great nights sleep you will also come away feeling like you have made two new friends.
