A very cosy and welcoming hotel. We were greeted by our host Dru and his 2 spaniels, the hotel is set in a lovely private surroundings along the well know “west highland way” Dru and his staff were all very understanding and helpful during the current situation, during our long stay while we were in the process of moving home. Our meals were all cooked from local fresh produce daily with generous portions which were all delicious. The rooms were very spacious ideal for those intending long stays . Dru and his staff couldn’t do enough for us during our stay which eased the stress of moving home, Highly recommend and will definitely be returning with friends once Covid allows

We were given a room on the top floor, difficult to carry the luggage but so worth it for the views. The room was very clean, the bed very comfortable and there was a nice chair to sit and absorb the stunning views. Only small gripe was the shower which was either too hot or too cold. The hotel was very Covid safe,sanitised, sealed rooms, hand sanitizer every few yards and perspex screening in the dining room between all tables. Staff were pleasant and friendly.

Arrived to a queue of 7 people at reception, not great for social distancing. Back door has a very grotty entrance. . Then a drink guest jumped the queue as he needed receptionist to open his room, so we were left standing even longer while no one at reception. Room was dated & tired with paper cups for coffee, kettle on window ledge was health hazard as behind the chair, someone will get burnt! . Meal was disappointing, garlic toast was bread with butter not even toasted & served in cold conservatory, breakfast tepid with warmish coffee. Electric car charger does not work but now reported. Def not be going back.

This was my first visit for seven years having had several visits previously and never disappointed. The hotel has undergone significant upgrading since my last visit most striking is the addition of the terrace and terrace restaurant. Outdoor seating on the terrace and and a very nice restaurant menu at sensible prices a really good upgrade with views across to the islands. My single room had recently been refurbished and was perfectly comfortable with enough room to keep luggage out of the way and a nice view from the front of the hotel. All the staff are very helpful and pleasant. The Covid 19 rules and guidance measures are absolutely first class and I felt completely safe and comfortable here. 11/10 to the WHH for this.

My mum and I visited the West Highland Hotel for dinner one very wet and windy evening while on a short break that wasn't quite going to plan due to the weather. We hadn't booked a table but thankfully they managed to squeeze us in. I had the special which was chicken and mushroom pie with mash and veg - it was absolutely delicious with pastry to die for! My mum had the smoked haddock lasagne for something different - that was even better!! So creamy and flavoursome. We had the chocolate box and sticky toffee pudding for dessert which were both delicious. Will definitely return here for a meal when the weather is better and possibly a stay overnight too - the views from the restaurant were beautiful across the water with the floor to ceiling glass and balcony area.
