Reviewed 22 August 2014

The MacLean Guest House offers the highest standard in every area - comfort, service, quality, location and friendliness. I shall never look for any other accommodaton when I visit this beautiful area in future.

The MacLean guest house is pristine and very, very clean. It is perfectly located for an easy walk into town and to public transportation (both bus and train). Everything is modern and up to date. The morning breakfast was very good. The full-service breakfast is only offered for 1 hour so there isn't a lot of flexibility in timing, but given the size/scale of operations it is understandable.

The guest house is located near to the train station and High street, within walking distance to the restaurants and shops. It is a very convenient if you wish to take the Jacobite steam train. We did not purchase the train tickets in advance but went to the train station early to purchase the day tickets instead. We stayed in the superior family room for 2 nights. The 2 double beds are of comfortable size for our family of four. It was hot during the 2 nights we were there and the tower fan provided helped little. We were very disappointed with the toilet too as the toilet seat came off (when we checked in) and the owners did not fix it. Breakfast was good though.

Ideally situated for anyone finishing the West Highland Way and/or starting the Great Glen Way in Fort William. There are numerous B&Bs in the area, and on my Land's End to John O'Groats walk, I did not pre-book any accommodations. I chose the MacLean Guest House purely on first impressions from the outside appearance....and I'm SO glad I did. I fully agree with previous reviews that commend the meals, service, staff, and the modern building itself. I was very impressed. I highly recommend the MacLean Guest House for your next visit to Fort William.

Whilst visiting family in Fort William, we stayed at Maclean Guest House. It was a fantastic experience. Mark & Brandi Lee made us feel SO welcome. The accommodation was of the highest standard. The choice of what type of breakfast you want was extensive & the cooked "Full Scottish" is to be recommended. All staff were very helpful & friendly, and nothing was too much bother for them. Mark has a great knowledge of the area, and is only too willing to advise you on places to visit. I sure it won't be long before we have a return trip & Maclean Guest House will be the first choice for accommodation. Many thanks Mark & Brandi Lee

This was my first visit to the MacLean guest house and I was impressed, the guest house is simply beautiful, finished to a very high standard, very friendly with helpful owners, excellent breakfast
I loved the location of the guest house, close enough for the heart of Fort William ( less then a 5 minute walk) yet still remains enough distance to avoid all the late party revellers.
I cant see any reason why I wouldn't go back
