Just come back from a 5 night stay at this hotel. The staff could not have been more helpful - nothing was too much trouble. Food was generally good with lots of choice, particularly for breakfast although combinations of vegetables with the specified meat for dinner were slightly unusual. Room was adequate and clean but the bed was rock hard (as is usual with most hotels these days) I believe that the upgraded rooms had more comfortable beds (only found this out when we were there). Wished we had paid extra. Also I think it would have been worth paying the extra for the view at the front which was stunning. Had room at the back with a view of the rear car park which despite our room being on the 1st floor was above window height so fairly dark. Entertainment was good but would have appreciated a room or area where we could hold conversation without talking over the noise - also because open plan the phone ringing in reception area must have disturbed the entertainer. This hotel is a good couple of miles from Fort William with the bus stop being a good 500m away - a long way for the elderly to walk. However, shared taxi with others which made the cost cheaper - about £6 between four people for one way! Don't forget to pack the midge repellant spray if you want to walk by the loch in the evening (which is beautiful). They are plentiful! Will go again.
