This is well appointed hotel. The rooms are lovely, although I do struggle to know what to do with all the cushions. Good sized bath and shower. Being 6' 3" these things matter. Free wifi, what ,ore could you want.

A lovely, modern and clean hotel set a few minutes walk away from the railway station in Fort William. The suite consisted of a large lounge, bedroom and sleek bathroom. Lovely warm welcome, escorted to the room which was above and beyond what I was expecting. Comfortable nights’ sleep with the window open as it was very warm. Ate dinner and breakfast which were both excellent quality and huge portions! Everybody we came into contact with was friendly and smiley. A nice base for touring. I could only ask that they included a safe in the rooms but that is a very small grumble!

Room Tip: Room 19 suite is very nice

We stayed here for 2 nights to facilitate taking the Jacobite Steam Train to Mallaig. We had a pleasant stay but there were a few negatives as well. The room was very clean and of reasonable size as was the bathroom. Whole place had been recently decorated and all was in top order with excellent new contemporary furnishings and fittings. It took less than 10 minutes to walk into town & to the station. There was residents parking at front of hotel. Good efficient service and nice food at Browns restaurant. Main public areas are air conditioned. Wi Fi worked most efficiently.
On the negative side, the bedrooms were very hot - no air con & when I asked for a fan was told to open window. This was to front of building and let in all traffic noise from main road in front of hotel + insects! Could not open bathroom window in spite of heat as it opened onto vent from kitchen. There is N0 outside space to sit out at all - just the car park and the main road - hardly the river side setting you imagine in hotel's description. No toilet brush & TV setting could not alter the written text (subtitles for the hard of hearing) appearing on all programmes ( though we did not require this). No lounge - but bar at far side of restaurant.
Overall - we enjoyed our stay of 2 nights - would recommend for a short stop over.

King size room was like a rabbit hutch, not a king size bed and not enough room to swing a cat. Walls paper thin, could hear both adjoining rooms quite clearly. Bed very uncomfortable. Probably the worst sleep ever in a hotel.

Due to the above we decided to check out early and despite talking to 2 different staff at reception, neither asked why we were leaving early, but both quick to point out we would be charged for the night we were not staying.

Vastly overpriced rooms that don't deliver.

Positive point was the restaurant was really good, good food and service staff were great: friendly and helpful.

Stayed for a few days. Pleasant, clean hotel. Rooms a bit small. Very friendly staff. Could have done with a fridge in the room.Good breakfast. Ample car parking. A good choice, just feel it was a bit pricey and not situated in a particularly scenic part of town.

My wife and I stayed two nights in the Nevis Bank Hotel we found the following points noteworthy.

+ Ample parking directly in front of the hotel.
+ Very tidy in and around the hotel.
+ Room was nicely decorated with a comfy bed.
+ Black out blind built into the window.
+ If you shut one curtain you have a nice view of the hills.
+ Corridor lighting had occupancy sensors so no stray light under your door all night.
+ Very nice bar area with friendly, attentive staff.
+ Good choice of meals in the hotel restaurant.
+ Prices in the bar / restaurant were reasonable.
+ All the meals we had were very tasty.
+ Good location to circular walks and Ben Nevis information center.
+ Well located with regards to the train station and town center

+/- The check in / desk staff were quite formal in their communication, it seemed clear we were just some more guests. The room was not ready and we were asked to return at 15:00hrs (check in time) the time was 14:38hrs. When we returned Bernadine seemed a little more interested in where we had travelled from etc..Sometimes its nice to feel people are genuinely interested, even if they are not.

- Room was quite noisy on a few occasions during the night, it seemed we were above some staff exit??
- Room was surprisingly small when you compare them to the pictures on the web.
- The first night at the evening meal it felt a little like a sheep dip.. we finished our starter and less than two minutes later the main course arrived, this made us feel we were being pushed so the staff could turn the table.
- Prior to the second nights meal I requested if we could have 10 mins between courses, the waiter the said he would need to ask the chef, if that was OK?? The response was that "on this occasion and due to them not being too busy it was OK, however, we don't really like people taking too long".
- One of my pet hates reared its ugly head.....my plate being cleared (removed from the table) prior to my wife finishing her meal, now this may be picky, but it makes you feel your being pushed to finish. This happened on two occasions.

However, having mentioned the above negatives, the positives far outweigh them on an importance scale, and having that I would use the hotel again and would recommend it to friends.

We decided to spend a little more than normal and enjoy a weekend away without the kids. The building has been well furnished but the room (12) was not much bigger than the king size bed. We have stayed in a whole range of hotels over the years and would not put the room standard any higher than a recently refurbished travelodge. Just wish that we had saved £100 and stayed there instead.
Breakfast was great but could easily have afforded a top one with money saved.

£4.40 for a Caledonian (Belhaven) Best

You get the idea.

Room Tip: None unless you get a discount suite.
