“Just the ticket!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 March 2013

We stayed in Cottage 1 for two nights at the end of February along with our two dogs (I had previously enquired if dogs were allowed) as we had planned a weekends walking. The location of the cottages is ideal for Ben Nevis & Glen Nevis & is also only a ten minute walk from the town centre. We found the rooms inside to be clean & comfortable. The bedroom was a decent size & had a double & single bed in it. The only complaint my missus had was there wasn't a mirror in it so she could do her hair (not an issue for me as it's been over thirty years since I had any!) The shower room & toilet were spotless & the shower cubicle was of a suitable size to allow us a hot shower in the morning & after the days walking & we're both over 6 foot tall. The living area & kitchen were spot on with the kitchen offering everything we needed & the living area again was comfortable, warm & clean. I'd fully recommend a stay here to anyone needing a decent base to explore this stunning part of The Highlands & hopefully we'll get another chance sometime later in the year to come back to Distillery Cottages.

Stayed in the cottages last night, fantastic value for money, clean, tidy and cosy. I will definitely stay again planning on booking for in for June. Despite the cold weather outside there is enough heating to keep you warm and toastie. I would highly recommend this accommodation to anyone, thanks for the welcome and a perfect stay!

We turned up at Fort William on a Saturday night and found these cottages just near the foot of Ben Nevis. We called the number and were given access to a key that let us into the cottage. It was quick and easy which was what we were looking for. We were pleasantly surprised at the cottage as the price was very cheap. It had all mod cons and the Morrisons is only 5 minute drive away to pick the essentials you need. As someone else stated, it was pretty cold outside and whilst it was warm in the cottage, it wasnt cosy warm.

Cottage was clean and beds were comfortable. There was freeview and a DVD player and comfortable seating for everyone. I would defintiely recommend for a short stay.

Stayed here for two nights at the end of October. Overall it was a good stay.

If you tried hard you could find fault but at the end of the day it was a nice cheap break so we werent expecting 5* standards.

The sofa was super comfy and felt like home from home.

Found it a bit annoying that the fridge opened away from the kitchen so you had to walk around the breakfast bar to get stuff out.

Toilets and showers clean and functional. The bed was a little too soft for me so cant say sleep quality was that good, but beds are subjective as everyone prefers their own level of firmness.

It was quite cool outside and although the heaters were on and the cottage was warm, it never really felt cozy warm.

Location was great - it is a 10-15 min walk from the town but thats no great problem. Ideally located for various leisure opportunities.

I would have no hesitation recommending this for a short break at the price we paid.

Just returned from a two night break at the Distillery Cottages, of which was very enjoyable, very clean and tidy , handy for Fort William centre which is only a ten minute walk away, would recommend these cottages as they are very reasonable and situated for all your outdoor activities .

My partner and her fifteen year old daughter spent three nights at the Distillery Cottages (No.3) which was an enjoyable yet exhausting stay. Our first real venture into walking where we covered six miles walking along Glen Nevis one day, only because we headed in the wrong direction for the forty minute walk we had planned. The cotage was in a very convenient location for the Glen and only a five minute walk to the centre of Fort William. The beds were clean and comfortable with the fifteen year old not complaing about the sofa bed downstairs which must mean it was comfortable. The lounge/dining area was also comfortable and a nice place to relax after all the walking and driving. Only negative comments were that the kitchen equipment was a bit sparce which made cooking breakfast a bit of a juggling act and the paintwork in places was looking a little tired, but with this being a good base for walkers it is bound to get a few scuff marks. Would recommend this as a good base for the local activities.

Room Tip: Did not see the other rooms but would suggest that No.3 is best suited to a family of four as the be...

As in-easy to book, easy to find, easy access to town and Ben-what's not to like? Comfy beds and clean.

We had 2 and 4, so used 2 for breakfast-more room.

Could have been there the same time as ekmorris below looking at his photo with Mike Peters :)
