We booked three nights at Lochaber Lodges for my family of five and two friends over Easter Break. We were offered a Glendale Lodge which included three bedrooms (double w/ en-suite and four singles across two rooms), kitchen, and living room area. The two other bedrooms share a toilet/shower. Although these accommodations are tight, they fit our needs perfectly.

Frank and his staff are nice and helpful. The lodges are clean and well kept. The location has scenery that is tough to beat and is only a short drive from Fort William. We found it equally easy to reach our other Highland destinations from Lochaber Lodges.

This is a great option for families. I felt comfortable allowing my children to use the playground facilities and explore the property. It was great to be able to put the kids to bed, but still have an area in which to socialize with other adults in our party. If travelling with a baby/toddler, they may need to sleep with mom and dad, otherwise you'll have a VERY tight squeeze in the double after placing your crib.

I would definitely book here again for a visit to this area of the Highlands.

Me and my boyfriend stayed here in March. We paid a very reasonable price for the week and stayed in the Escape lodge. We had a brilliant time. The views from all the lodges were lovely. All have views of Anoach Mor and Ben Nevis and views to the canal below. The lodges are about 7miles from fort William, but if you are looking for a getaway lodge away from everything these are ideal! Frank who runs the site is very friendly and can't do enough to make you feel at home. I would recommend these holiday lodges to everyone. We will be back again next year!!!! Emma & Sean

Stayed here for a week in March. What a great find - it was perfect.The lodge was spotless and very well equipped. On site, Frank was very friendly and informative, nothing was ever too much trouble. The site is clean and tidy, the lodges have wonderful views across the Caledonian canal towards Aonach Mor & Ben Nevis. This is a great base for exploring the Highlands, there are plenty of things to see & do in the area. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there and will definitely be booking again. Highly recommended.

Stayed here last week for 4 nights. Really liked the place and could not fault it for value. The lodges are immaculate and extremely well equipped. Frank was very helpful and made us feel welcome and right at home.

The views from the lodges are amazing overlooking the canal and the Nevis range. Would definately stay here again when travelling to the highlands of Scotland.

We have stayed twice now, once for a week in Feb 2011 and most recently for a week over Christmas 2012. we absolutely love the place; the lodges inside are perfect, the views out over the canal & the mountains is beautiful, the location is just right - within driving distace of all that you could want or need. Frank was amazing! before we went he gave us pointers on where to go over the Christmas period, we arrived to a little christmas tree and a food hamper- he really couldnt have been more helpful and hospitable. it is a very special place for us, one that we would certainly return to again and again (if they will have us!) and one that we will recommend to all!

Stayed here in October for two weeks on motorcycle tour of scotland and other trips. The location was stunning , close to Ben Nevis and Nevis Range . Could not have been better fortnight , only rained for one day . Lodge was very clean , warm , and frank was very friendly . Arrival and departure was made very easy and guide book was very informative . Cant wait to go back this year as i dont think i have enjoyed scotland so much and ive been quite a few times now , how could you possibly want to go abroad !

Room Tip: plan ahead where you want to visit , both for wet days and for sunshine then you wont be disappointe...

We stayed here for October School Holiday week and used it as a base for Mountain Biking and other family activities. The location is superb, right on the edge of the Caledonian Canal and stunning views of Ben Nevis beyond. The Lodge itself was perfect, clean, warm and very well equipped. Frank was great and showed us all that we needed to know in the lodge and gave advice about places to go and eat. All in all we would recommend Lochaber Lodges as a fantastic base for walking, biking or just enjoying the area.

Room Tip: We stayed in a two bedroom Monaco Duo which was perfect.
