“Excellent value for money backpacker hostel accommodation”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2013

We stayed in the Grey Corrie Lodge bunkhouse for one night at £11.25 per person. Two of us had exclusive use of a 4 bunk room. Compact room (no. 7) with small sink in the corner and wardrobe, this accommodation was comfortable and the linen was clean.
The worst bits:- There was a damp wee-like smell when we arrived but a squirt around of deodorant and wide opened window helped a lot. The carpet was quite stained and there was graffiti under the bunks, which you can read if you sleep in the lower bunks. Thin walls mean you can hear people fidgeting in bed next door because their bunks were squeaky. We stayed on a very quiet night - but as you have no control over who books in on the same night as you - be prepared for noise and being woken by footsteps up and down the corridor as people go to wee, doors banging etc.
The good bits - there is a communal kitchen which is well equipped with cookers, microwaves, toasters, kettles, cups pans and cutlery. There is also washing up liquid, washing powder, washing machines and drying rooms, showers with toiletries, loos with soft loo paper, a wood burner that you can stoke up with logs - you really do get a lot for your money.
No plug sockets in the rooms but there is a heater, a main light and individual reading lights for each bunk (only 1 out of 4 working in our room, but I'm sure they would sort that out if asked)
Plug sockets in hallway and plenty in kitchen
Wifi - they will give you the code if you buy a drink- is available in the pub - and more plug sockets. Breakfast is available in the hotel at £7.50 - I didn't try this.
This accommodation (the bunk house) is not hotel or bed n breakfast standard - it is somewhere you can sleep and dry off - it's 'roughing it' but better than camping in the rain. It is a bit gross, damp and grotty and you feel that sort of 'festival-grubby' - but what do you expect for this price?
I think I would rather sleep in the lodge for £11.50 than in the hotel for £35, as it didn't look much better there, and the bar was noisier than the lodge when we stayed.
It was ok for one night but I wouldn't want to stay longer personally as I wanted to feel 'clean' again.

Room Tip: Room 7 has a plug socket outside so you could plug your phone in and leave your door ajar to keep n...

Don't go there especially if you stay in the Bunk House.
The cycling team and I came to this place following a stop at the very moving Commando Monument near Spean Bridge and we concluded that you needed the bravery of a commando to stay here!
My first impression was of walking into the hotel reception to be met with a festoon of cobwebs hanging from the stair banisters and skirting boards which were caked with dust.
The bunkhouse in which five of us slept was cramped and hot although the bedding was clean.
The communal shower/toilet facility left a lot to be desired.The tiles in the shower were loose or broken and wet toilet paper had been thrown at the toilet walls by previous guests and not removed.
However,on the plus side ,the bar/restaurant was very good. The food was plentiful ,if a little unimaginative ,but the staff were very helpful and flexible in meting the cyclists dietary requirements.
I should add that we were charged only £12.50 each for the night and the cost of the food was reasonable but I wished I'd paid more for something better.

Room Tip: Don't stay in the bunk house

We found the Roy Brudge hotel good value for what we wanted.
We're in town for the Fort William DH World Cup Championships and Roy Bridge was about 10 minutes out of town.
The owners were friendly and helpful, we just needed somewhere to sleep, have a meal and be on our way. This hotel offered this for us!

Stayed here for my birthday weekend first impressions em well kinda cramped as we were in the eight room dorm but it did the job. Then later on realised no plugs so had to stand in kitchen or hallway to do hair or charge phones. We were woken up at 6am by someone in hallway drying their hair.

Under beds there were dirty plates clearly the cleaner is lazy! No bins in the room so we had to use carrier bags.

Bed were cosy and comfy did the job after a few drinks in the pub.

Kitchen area quite big tables,fridges wee fire. Toilets and shower in the room shame no doorway to hide the showers away as you don't want to see a ladys foof while they are drying haha.

Had dinner in Roy Bar hotel food gorgeous good helpings :) Barmen Davie and Ronaldo awesome bar men :D

Good night although the no plugs and bins in the room put us off going to try staying in actual hotel next time.

You won't find luxury here as it is a typical Scottish country inn, But we had a pleasant bed and breakfast en route to Skye. The welcome was friendly and we had a reasonably large twin room with a toilet and shower cubicle attached. The bar was spartan but provided a decent meal served by a very friendly member of staff and the breakfast was one of the best I have encountered. Some of the fixtures need attention---the shaving light in the toilet area did not work but this was not really important for an overnight. Try to get a room that is not above the bar which can be staging a musical event some nights. We had room one. Reasonable value.

A group from our company recently took part in the Caledonian Challenge. We needed to find accommodation for 40 people for one night. We needed somewhere close to the start line, with sufficient accommodation at a good price, and also an evening meal - the Roybridge Hotel tick all those boxes.

As you can imagine with a group of 40 people, it isn’t all that easy to ensure it all runs smoothly, so this side of it was made so much easier with the correspondence from Becky – this really did make life a lot easier!

We used all the rooms up bar the 8-bed room in the Bunkhouse, so I had the opportunity to look at the rooms in the Hotel, Hostel and Bunkhouse. Contrary to some of the other comments I’ve seen, the rooms were clean and tidy with fresh bed linen. For roughly £12pppn, we got extremely good value for money. The evening meal was served in two sittings, given the size of our group……this was handled very efficiently and the food was perfect for what we needed. The Public Bar next door was a great place to get a drink and socialise – great way to relax the night before the big event.

All, in all, we have nothing but positive remarks to leave about the Roybridge Hotel…..a warm and welcoming host, who provided accommodation and food that was fantastic value for money.

One of the managers left a jacket behind, which he didn’t notice until we got back to Aberdeen. He phoned them and they have made arrangements to get it sent on to him….no fuss, just did – we really appreciated that approach and kind of personified the spirit of the hotel.

We would have no hesitation in re-booking the Roybridge Hotel again if we partake in the Caledonian Challenge again next year.

Room Tip: Fantatsic value accomodation and food for large groups

We stayed for one night. We payed 45 for two people including breakfast. Did I expect the Ritz for this...absolutely not. In fact what I got was better than I had thought and although tired and a little outdated it had everything I needed. The bar food was ok and the bar had a good atmosphere. I quite enjoyed the hotel on a rustic level and knew that it has been a good deal. My only gripe was breakfast. Sausages should be cooked no matter how much I payed - it would not have been worth the price if I had been on the loo all day - needless to say I left it. All in all a good stop at a cheap price.
