“Biker friendly couple”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 October 2008

Wow what a great place to stay, Joe and Jane are what made the stay in Fort William enjoyable and very comfortable. Arriving on the door step soaking wet from being on the motorbike,and asking on the of chance for a room was no problem.
Through out the three days stay they were only to happy to hang the soaked bike gear in the laundry room to dry ready for the next day
The room was very clean and well maintained as was the whole house. The breakfast was fantastic and the view across the loch was great. It made a nice change to have a couple so biker friendly and I would recommend anyone to stay

Hillview is a lovely guest house with a high level of cleanliness, a very friendly and cosy atmosphere and the most amazing views of the loch. It is situated just outside Fort William with the town centre in walking distance and is therefore perfect when looking for a quite place to stay not far away from restaurants, pubs and shops.

Furthermore, Jane and Joe, the couple running the place, are extremely friendly and welcoming and very helpful concerning all matters. All in all it is a B&B I would definitely recommend to everyone and I would very happily stay at again myself.

My wife and I spent five days at Hillview and found the accommodation to be in top condition,spotlessly clean, and maintained daily with fresh towels. We had a room on the first floor with spectacular views across the Loch to the mountains beyond. Jane and Joe are congenial and attentive hosts who both work hard to ensure that all their guests have the best possible holiday experience. We would have no hesitation in recommending to friends, family or others.

We have recently returned from our visit to forte william, relaxed, refreshed and raring to go!! Before I go on to explain about the b and b i think that its so important to say that the thing that made our trip were Jane and Jo the owners, they were wonderful, chatty, imformative and would bend over backwards to make our stay even more pleasant. I booked the B and B through a website but was able to contact the owner personally, she helped me find out extra information about how to get to the property and quickly informed me of their website which included extra information about the b and b and surrounding area. The location was perfect, over looking the loch and close to all of forte williams amentities. We had hired a car and there was plenty of room to park within the grounds of the b and b. The rooms were all easily accessable to my mum who finds walking difficult at times. There were freshly laundered towels daily, biscuits with the coffee and tea making facilites and beautifully cleaned rooms.
I am planning to return to the bed and breakfast next year without any hesitation. Everything you could ever want from a b and b, and more.

The place is just outside fort william away from the bustle of the main town centre but easily within walking distance to the centre. The couple who run the place are very friendly and nice, they even let us tore our cake in their fridge :-) The view from the room was amazing! It is a lovely place with plenty of character and would recommend to anyone who wants to get away for the weekend and relax!

Having booked this B&B after looking on Trip Advisor, we were shocked to see very negative comments left just before we were due to go.
All I can say is the people who left them must have been vindictive as Jane & Joe the most helpful, polite and accommodating hosts we came across on our recent Scotland tour.
The view from our window was beautiful, the room clean and food excellent.
My advise would be to read the positive reviews for a true picture of the B&B, as this was how we found it.
