“Didn't stay...”
Reviewed 27 August 2013

My husband and I were touring Scotland and decided to make a two night stop in Fort William.
I contacted the Craig Nevis the evening before as many B&B's in Fort William were booked up. I spoke to a lady and asked if she had any vacancies for the following evening she checked and confirmed she had a double room for the following two nights.
We were relieved as we realised it was our own fault for leaving the booking so late.
When we arrived the lady who answered the door went away to check the booking log, she had no booking for Goddard but had entered a booking for Podderd two days later.
I queried this but was told by the very brusk man who had joined us that they had been booked up on that night for months and it must be my mistake and I must have the wrong guest house.
I have a feeling knowone called Podderd turned up for their two night booking but it was obviously MY fault and the owners didn't have the courtesy to recommend anywhere else. Be very careful and make sure you have a booking confirmation in writing, that's my suggestion!

Even the reviews below are quite bad our experience with Craig Nevis B&B is very good. We were given a nice room in the bungalow beside the main house. The room was large enough and there was even had a bathtub in the bathroom. The breakfast was lovely and the owners very welcoming.

4 of us doing the 3 peaks challenge 03/05/2013. drove from Ipswich to this place 13.5hrs on the road only to find out they they had given away our room. despite 2 phone calls confirming and sending them an e-mail. the old man and lady could not give a care in the world as had obviously made more money giving our 2 rooms away to other who were paying for more than just the 1 night. Stuck on the bank holiday at 11pm at night driving round finding that everyone had no vacancies. managed to finally find a place the West End Hotel. They had availability for the 4 of us. After we told them what had happened they sorted us out. gave us a reduction on their rates. and the rooms and the service we received was amazing. if it was not for the West End Hotel we would have had to sleep in the car. thanks a bundle Craig Nevis..

Room Tip: go to the West End Hotel

We had a really small double room. For well-fed persons the bathroom was to available, because it was tiny! Breakfast was ...ok, but we won't commit.
Something positive? The only positive aspect is the central location.

We will never go there again!

Stayed in this B&B for 2 nights on the 21st August 2012. Me and my partner stayed in the annex on the side of the house. When we arrived we were waiting by the front door for 25 minuits until the owner walked down the road and had obviously been shopping with her friend. First impressions were okay, until i walked into that bathroom. It looked as though it was a disabled bathroom and was very grubby. There were a lot of long black hairs and pubic hairs on the bathroom floor and on the back of the toilet. The towels smelt awful as did the linen. The bedroom was nice apart from the stool for the dresser was barely usable and the TV signal had a lot to be desired. You couldnt really watch anything as it would freeze or mute every 2 minuits. Breakfast was okay, nothing special.
Wouldn't return.

Arrived after doing The Great Glen Way. Room was clean and comfortable, ensuite was fine. TV reception was a bit sporadic but we didn't really go to Fort William to watch telly. Only negative point was the noise, (not really a complaint hence we didn't raise it with the owner) more just a fact. Road noise was pretty loud. We were on the main road through Fort William but there seemed to be no soundproofing. Noise between rooms was pretty bad as well. When the sound went off on our TV, we could continue to listen to the sound from the room next door. Fortunately, everyone seemed to decide to turn in at about the same time. Again, just a fact, not a complaint as everyone was on holiday and entitled to do their own thing. Smallest breakfast of all our stays but it was fine. Sorry, don't think we'll be back, try somewhere a bit quieter off the main road.

Room Tip: We were in the annex, maybe main house would be quieter.

I have stayed there with a friend in July. It wa terrible. The staff was really unfriendly, breakfast very poor and the place looked very cheap. One morning we have stayed longer in the room and the girl who was cleaning the rooms came and toldus to vacant the room immediately because she does not have time to wait. I was so surprised. Definitely would not recommend to anybody. Never again.

Room Tip: before choosing this place try any other option, they are just around corner
