Definitely the best looking hotel in Fort William! Very popular too; we could only book for 1 night some months before our visit. Fortunately a cancellation allowed us to get a second night (August is the main holiday period in UK).
As we are train travellers, the Alexandra is the perfect location, only 200 meters from the station. Staff as friendly as always, great breakfasts, great dinners. Very comfortable rooms if you ask for the rooms at the front of the hotel.

Room Tip: The Alexandra hotel would score a perfect 10 except for some of the rooms at the rear of the hotel...

Since we last stayed here with a large group the hotel has improved, though check in can still be slow.
The rooms are clean and comfortable but can have too much furniture to move around, there is no real room to store luggage without tripping over it.
The hotel is in the best location to explore the town, the railway station is just over the road and the shops are just a walk away from the hotel front door.
The rooms are quite especially when the hotel is in the town centre and next the main road in and out of Fort William.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel with a party of Rolls-Royce Retired Employees .The hotel staff were friendly and extremely helpful nothing being too much trouble. The buffet breakfast was always piping hot and there was p[lenty of choice ,the evening meal was 3 course with a choice of 4 starters 3/4 mains and 4 sweets.
The hotel is very central and within a few yards of the station and shops The entertainment in the evening was good for getting the guests up and dancing(not much room for the Gay Gordons).
Would not hesitate to stay there again excellent value for money.Take 10 minutes out to read the hotel guide in the room not the normal boring book very entertaining.

Stayed at this hotel for a weekend spring break.
Room we had was very spacious and very comfortable.
Had breakfast at this hotel and was very impressed by the buffet.
The food was piping hot and was checked regularly by a member of staff.
Would recommend this hotel for a weekend break.
Entertainment was on for the two nights we stayed and all at were staying at the hotel enjoyed themselves.

This is an old hotel but is very well situated with pleasant helpful staff and nice big rooms. Several rooms have lovely views over the loch and hills.
Breakfast is buffet style but with a good selection and plenty of it. The hotel has free wifi in the main lounge and bar area. The hotel is used by the elderly on coach trips as well as hardy souls who have just completed the West Highland Way walk.
The only negative points during our stay was a surly barman and a hard bed so a point off for that.

Room Tip: Avoid a back facing room if you was a view.
