My girlfriend and I recently stayed at this hotel overnight for a wedding. at £79 inc breakfast the day at short notice we found this pretty reasonable and the pictures looked very nice. The hotel is situated next to the train station which is the main source of transport into Fort William. We required an early check in which many other hotels were not willing to accommodate but a quick call to the Alexandra, or the Alex as it is known locally, sorted that out right away. That's not the only time they went beyond the call of duty to help us out! The hotel itself is an older building and the style is very homely. The room had a nice view of FW from the 4th floor and was very clean. We had travelled a long way on not much sleep so ordered up some breakfast which was great and when we ate our breakfast the next day which was included in the package it was buffet style but the food remained of a good standard and staff were always checking up on tables ensuring everyone was alright. Check out was 11am, our train scheduled at 11.40am so all fine we thought however the train tickets were booked for in 4 days advance!! The hotel were more than willing to let us sleep in the room free of charge for a while to help us recover from the night before's festivities and gave us great advice as to how to get back down the road ASAP without breaking the bank. To round up, great staff at a lovely old hotel and although we only stayed 1 night I will be booking if ever in Fort William again, hopefully for a longer stay with much much better weather!
