The Grange B&B, in Ft William, Scotland, is, quite simply, the nicest B&B that I’ve ever experienced. Every detail is skillfully provided by the proprietor, Joan, right down to the little doggie door stops which held open the “secret door” leading from the living room to the bedroom. The place was kept immaculately clean and well appointed, with unusual attention to every detail. Our room was ready even though we arrived far ahead of schedule, as we kept in touch throughout the day via e-mail, and Joan made sure we didn’t have to wait. Furnishings, fixtures and accents were tastefully updated, including a rainfall waterfall shower system with rain massage body jets in the spacious bathroom, which was just off the large bedroom. The bedroom had a private terrace overlooking Loch Linnhe and the beautiful nearby Scottish mountains. We enjoyed a wonderful breakfast, with plenty of diverse options, brought to our room each morning, and filled with all manner of variety. It was a great way to begin our days there. The B&B is a short walk to a pedestrian-friendly downtown, where there are a variety of restaurants and shops, a couple nice museums, and lots of businesses catering to the trekking and climbing crowd that frequents to take advantage of the proximity to Ben Nevis. Should we ever make it back to Scotland, this place will be our first choice for lodging. Joan was a delight, the scenery was spectacular, the food was great, and the B&B itself simply cannot be improved. Of all the places we stayed in Scotland over a two-week sojourn which included Edinburgh, Glasgow, Skye, Inverness, St. Andrews and Ft. William, The Grange B&B was the best value, and frankly the most luxurious of all our accommodations.…
5 star accommodation with a 5 star host. We were welcomed by the owner and shown around her amazing Garden Suite which we wholely reccomend. We were then left to our stay which was lovely to get some peace and quiet. The place wasn't just clean it was surgically clean. And this high level of attention to detail was evident throughout the room. The shower and bath were particular highlights as was the private bistro table on a private patio overlooking the lock. On arrival we were left a bottle of prosseco in the fridge with chilled glasses and the bed is one of the most comfortable things in the world. Literally didn't want to leave it at the crack of dawn to climb Ben Nevis. Thank you!
We had a fantastic two night stay in the garden suite at The Grange. First of all Joan was such a fantastic host, so helpful with local recommendations and the breakfast was outstanding. You get to choose what you’d like the night before and then it is delivered the next morning to the suite, this means you get to eat your breakfast with the fantastic view across the loch. The suite is stunning, a really comfortable bed, tv, speakers as well as a roll top bath looking out across the loch. We both agreed it is the best B&B we’ve ever stayed in and we will be recommending to everyone we know. I hope we get the chance to stay there again soon.
We recently stayed in the garden room at The Grange and had a wonderful weekend. The accommodation is exceptionally high standard, tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was delivered to our room and was delicious! Joan is an excellent host, friendly, full of good advice about places to eat and things to do and very welcoming. Couldn’t recommend it more. Will definitely be returning for another visit.
It's not always you see something on the internet with 5 stars rating - especially when the number of reviews is so many. So here are a few more stars to add to The Grange's well-deserved constellation. What a great place. We stayed at the annexe, which is just a few meters from the main house in the garden and we couldn't recommend it more. Hosts were very welcoming, giving us advice for walks, places to eat and a bottle of prosecco! The view from the bedroom was amazing. A perfect background to have a great breakfast al fresco. In the room, there was also great quality towels, dressing gowns and sleepers. Both shower and bath were also fantastic. The weather was dry and it's a shame we could stay only for a couple of days. Definitely need to go back.
