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.
