“Comfortable B&B with good service”
Reviewed 15 March 2014

Country location just on the edge of town. Comfortable modern rooms in good condition. Ample parking. Good friendly service. Excellent breakfast...and adjoining a pub with a restaurant. What more could you want?

Arrived at 12 o'clock and the place was almost full. As we hadn't booked we were lucky to get a table but the friendly staff went out of their way and Soon had a table for two sorted. The other half went to the bar to order the food and drinks and then we had a wait of about 20 minutes for our food. Not a problem as we were quite comfy and the back ground music was enjoyable too.

Our meals arrived and it was a very pleasant sight to see thick slices of roast beef and a very large fluffy Yorkshire pudding placed in front of us. Also served were dishes containing creamed potato and roasties and a second dish with carrots, cauliflower, broccoli and diced turnip. Plus, a large gravy boat. The meal was delicious so much so I was too full for a dessert. It's been a long time since I've enjoyed a Sunday lunch as much and will return very soon but I will make sure to pre book a table.

As well as the Sunday lunch menu specials were available too which included Malaysian chicken curry, fish and chips with mushy peas, salmon and a few other dishes too. Can't wait to return.

I have stayed here on a number of occasions and it is always so welcoming.
The last time I stayed the owner met me in the car park and welcomed me and remembered my first name.
When I went to the Bistro the Bar manager shook my hand and yet again remembered me by my first name.
Food always excellent,rooms very comfortable.
The Bistro is always full of locals, in for a meal,which bears testament to the quality of food.
I will continue to stay here every time I am in the area.
Which now is frequently.

Friendly staff. comfortable & spacious room. Safe car park which is locked at night. Superb food.
Although on a main road it was very quiet at night. It is also very convenient to have a bar/restaurant on the site, especially one with such outstandingly good food.

Does what it says on the tin and then some! Clean comfortable room, very friendly helpful staff, good food well cooked, possibly the best breakfast I have eaten and that includes five star hotels, why would anyone want a buffet when your breakfast is cooked to order? Excellent value for money, those who have been disappointed have either been very unlucky or are extremely hard to please, o.k. it doesn't have all the facilities/bigger rooms of a large hotel but you aren't paying big hotel prices. The fact that the restaurant was full on Tuesday night pays testament to the fact that locals as well as visitors rate this place.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back may be a little quieter if the weather is hot and you need to leave the window ope...

Great hotel and friendly. Our room was very comfy and smart. The setting was magnificent and easy to get to most places around Fort William. The food in the resturant was very good. To thing they need to improve on and they are the shower in room3 and make available the cooked breakfast a Buffett style. But other than that highly recommended
