“Scotish dream”
Reviewed 3 August 2013

One of the best hotels we have ever stayed at with Lochs & Glens nothing to much trouble for the staff, bedrooms comfortable .clean and plenty of room.

Food was very good and the service was matched.

Entertainment again was very good.

Looking forward to the already booked trip next year.

Room Tip: The front of the hotel has a good view of the loch.

We have just returned from our first holiday with Lochs & glens at The Highland Hotel Fort William. We were very lucky having good weather for the whole week. The hotel is very comfotable with good food and excellent friendly and polite staff. The organisation of the holiday was brilliant i.e. meal times and times of excursions out. Although it was a long haul from Surrey we had plenty of stops and Lizzie our coach driver can certainly handle a coach and is very pleasant. We would certainly travel with Lochs & Glens again..

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view. This hotel overlooks Loch Linnie

Travelled in late July from Ipswich with relatives as a foursome. Although a long trip there were adequate breaks & Dave the main driver kept us well informed of timings etc. This our 4th trip with Lochs & Glens & as un previous occasions were greeted on the coach on arrival, allocated rooms while luggage promptly delivered outside the door. Room & bed comfortable, Clean bathroom with bath & shower which although not working was quickly remedied. Food was well prepared & quickly served by well trained staff. Once again the Loch views was excellent as well as relaxing a feature of all this firms hotels. The trips were well planned - sailing across the sea to Skye was something we had looked forward to for some time. Our visit to the Ben Nevis Distillery was very good complimented by Tom our excellent tour guide who kept the right amount of information mixed with humour that kept things interesting. The evening entertainment was mixed - Paula MacAskill proving the most popular; Checking her website showed she has a full diary of bookings so well done the hotel for affording her two (regular) evenings. Unless requested she did not repeat numbers & its worth checking her U tube version of * How`s the world treating you " which is EXCELLENT. Bar prices were very good, cheaper than in pubs in town. The recently opened Weatherspoons being best value. Recommend this hardworking, well trained & value for money group & hope to tour with them again soon.

Recently went on the 4night break. We had ages 6-77 in our party and was thoroughly enjoyed. Our room (to sleep 3) was huge and clean with the most fantastic view from the window.

Nightly entertainment was fabulous. Had the eldest dancing away and in her elements. The wifi in the lounge kept the youngest quiet with her tablet and the staff were top dollar. From management to cleaning staff.

Coach isn't very comfortable, but when you get to the hotel the views are stupendous. Rooms comfortable and food edible. If you are not fit don't try walking down to the town as there are a lot of steps.

Just returned from a four day self drive. Excellent hotel, probably one of the best in the chain. Rooms were a decent size, clean, with modern furnishings. The bathroom sparkled and looked as if it had been recently refurbished. Food was good and hot, served very efficiently - the company have certainly got the restaurant service down to a fine art! We only did the entertainment the first night, preferring to sit in the lounge and enjoy the view. What we heard other nights sounded good. The only slight critism was that our room was over the entertainment and the bass was sometime a little loud. However, the entertainment finished at 11.00 so it wasn't really a problem.

Just spent 4 terrific nights at the Highland hotel Fort William, It was glorious. Room was spacious ,extremely clean and tidy and wonderfully comfartable bed.
The meals were all excellent, the staff are very warm and friendly nothing was a bother to them.
Nightly entertainment was ok, but not great. All in all an extremely pleasant place to stay, the surrounding countryside is spectacular and awesome I would reccomend a drive up Glen Nevis, a truely awe inspiring piece of country

Room Tip: corner suite for a family
