Stayed at the Croit Anna out of necessity rather than choice being unable to book into my usual hotel in walking distance of Fort William town centre. The hotel is the the farthest away from the town on the A82 to the south which should be borne in mind if staying here, a car is a necessity to visit the town .
I found the hotel clean and comfortable if appearing a little tired and in need of updating.
( Who else puts sheets AND blankets on a bed still ? ) . The restaurant however does need some attention to detail. On more than one morning glasses for the fruit juice were not properly clean and the staff while pleasant did appear less than enthusiastic.
For food I can only comment on breakfast, and this is one area that needs looking at - Breakfast is obviously pre-prepared and kept warm for catering for coach parties on fixed dining times - the result is a quickly delivered meal, edible but much at the opposite end of the spectrum to master chef; In a full breakfast sausages and black pudding in particular were over hard and beans - well you had to look hard to find them.
The room was well cleaned and tidied daily but here again some attention to detail is needed. If I stayed on three separate nights the shower gel provided would be new each night, so why not for three consecutive nights ?. And attention to detail - the bathroom extractor fan would benefit from having the accumulated dust extracted from it.
Was it a bad experience - well no, just lacking a little fine detail at the edges and it was a good deal. But you do come away with the feeling that the hotel is happy to survive on repeat business from tour operators that it doesn't have to work hard for .
