While this B&B was very good, I am not sure why it was awarded 4 stars. I think a 3 star rating would be better for this venue as a 4 star leads one to think you will get more than Balcarres gives. That being said, there is nothing wrong with this B&B. It is within a good walking distance of High Street in Fort William and is up on a hill so that there are some nice views. The rooms are rather small as are the bathrooms but everything was clean and comfortable. The TV reception left a lot to be desired, though, especially during Olympic coverage! The breakfast was very good and the hosts were accommodating. We also had a bagged lunch prepared for us to take on our hike for the day. I would recommend this B&B but do not expect 4 star accommodations!
