“Lovely B&B with Lochside Views”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

En route to Skye, my friend and I had an overnight stay at The Willows on Friday 11th October... we had room 6 (The Annexe).. well what can we say about that.. absolutely 10/10 ... room was fantastic and had the WOW factor as soon as you opened the door, beds were just so comfortable and as has been mentioned before, room was well equipped with extras. Quick walk into Fort William takes about 5 mins or you could have a leisurely stroll. Breakfast was exceptionally good, everything that you would want or need with lovely views of the Loch from the dining room. Paul was away at an auction when we stayed,but Nic made you feel welcome from the moment you arrived until the moment you left, and her Mum helped out on the Saturday with cooking breakfast (Thank you Nic's Mum :o). Would definitely stay here again and would also highly recommend The Willows to anyone.......... A big thank you from Dena and Florence :o)

While travelling in Scotland we stopped for the night at a B&B at the Willows. Paul is a very nice chap.He cooked a wonderful breakfast and there was a great choice of cereals, yoghurts, fruit etc. The Willows is certainly a B&B to be proud of. Very clean and nicely decorated , a bed that ensured a perfect nights sleep and a view that cannot be missed . Looking out over the Loch whilst breakfasting is a perfect start to the day. A wonderful stay and we will definitely be back if in Scotland again.

After perusing the Trip Advisor reviews of The Willows B&B in Fort William I had high expectations. I was not disappointed - it was truly everything and more that all other reviewers had stated. We stayed in the Annexe which not only had a fridge but a microwave. Morrisons was within walking distance and we enjoyed cheap hot meals for the 3 nights we spent at the B&B. Paul cooked a wonderful breakfast and there was a great choice of cereals, yoghurts, fruit etc. Nic was delightful and The Willows is certainly a B&B to be proud of. Clean with wonderfully white soft fluffy towels, a bed that ensured a perfect nights sleep and a view that cannot be faulted. Looking out over the Loch whilst breakfasting is a perfect start to the day. A wonderful stay and we will definitely be back if in Scotland again.

Really nice B&B in Fort William within easy walking distance of shops, restaurants etc. Lovely view from dining room and exceptionally good breakfast. All very clean. I have stayed here twice now and been made to feel very welcome. Would definitely visit again if I was in area.

Excellent accommodation at "The Willows" - staying in the new annexe at the side of the bungalow - Absolutely everything there to make the stay a pleasant one. One double and one single bed in the room - TV, Fridge, Microwave, Cutlery and China - nice table and chairs ready for the odd snack. Super large bathroom with plenty of towels. Paul cooked a delicious breakfast and there was an ample supply of Cereals, Fruits Juice and Yogurts. Plenty of Toast and top-ups of Tea or Coffee. Super central location right opposite Loch Linnhe with outstanding views. Great value and would certainly use again when in Fort William.

Room Tip: All rooms looked good to me but we did stay in the Annexe which was a good size and perfect.

My three peaks team stumbled upon this guest house in the middle of the night having been unable to enter our pre booked hostel. Paul accepted us without issue and we comfortably occupied a large family room. The Willows was extremely clean and perfectly suited to our needs. Due to our late arrival Paul willingly allowed a later breakfast which was just the ticket for hungry walkers. I would definately recommend this guest house and look forward to returning some day.

Room Tip: The family room had two doubles and two singles. It was large enough for 5 Adults.

My stay at The Willows was a very pleasant experince, rooms are all extremely clean and had everything I needed. The owners couldn't do enough to help and it is in a beautiful spot just a short walk from the main town of Fort William. Beautiful views across the loch. If you haven't been to Fort William before I would highly reccomend it, it's one of the most beautiful places I know in the UK and I will certainly be staying at The Willows again.
