Wow what a find, Excellent service, Friendly and happy staff, Good food, excellent location and a wonderful atmosphere,
The hotel over looks a Loch with views to die for and has been recently refurbished the cleanliness is good, Only downfall here is the creaky floorboard you can hear every movement above you, espically at 4am.
The food was always hot and very tasty, and service was fun and professional. Evening Entertainment was enjoyable.
Trips out each day were breath taking, 400 photo's to prove it !!
Overall a great 5 days, Thank you Lochs and Glen and Thanks to The Highland Hotel
We will return

We were on the Lochs and Glens tours. The breakfast and dinners were great. We sat at assigned tables with tablemates whom we really enjoyed. The wines were reasonably priced. The nightly entertainers were great fun. This was our first trip to Scotland and although we missed the cities we had a wonderful vacation. We saw new things everyday without having to pack up and move to a different hotel.

Stayed 5 nights at at the Highland Hotel on a self drive, This being our 3rd lochs & glens
self drive all have been excellent value for money breaks ,good food ,friendly staff and
lovely rooms. We go for the walking and were out every day only wearing our wet gear on one morning.
One tip,If like us you are not into Quizzes Bingo and assorted entertainers,Chose an hotel in a town or village with a pub or other hotels!
A visit to the Calidonian Canal that begins at Fort William with Neptunes Ladder! a series of 9 lochs

My stay was most enjoyable.The staff were eager to help .Food was varied and certainly enjoyable.Drinkwise,the prices were a very pleasant surprise,especially having to buy for a group of ten at times!No complaints about the accomodation. My room was in the refurbished area . It appeared that a lot of thought had gone into the layout. I would not hesitate to return to this hotel.

The holiday was a self drive two for the price of one and cost a total of £199 for 4 nights dinner bed and breakfast.
The staff were always friendly and welcoming.
The bedroom and bathroom was kept immaculate and cleaned every day.
The meals were varied with a choice for vegetarians and were always hot and well presented.
location of the hotel is a few minutes walk down hill or down steps and I noted some older people using a taxi for their return journey.
can certainly recommend this Hotel and its location and service.

The Highland hotel has been taken over by Lochs & Glens coach tour company. It has been totally refurbished. The bedrooms are very comfortable and as far as I could tell all the rooms had new beds. The bathrooms are all new and modern complete with fluffy white towels.
The food is of acceptable standard and you have a choice at every course.
The drinks at the bar and in the restaurant are reasonably priced.
The only thing that lets it down is the quality, or lack of it, of the tea and coffee that is served after dinner, it is quite dreadful.
On our visit in February there were two lovely open fires, very cosy.
The views from the front bedrooms and the reception area are quite stunning especially if you have been lucky enough to have lovely weather, which we had.
It is only a short walk downhill into the centre of Fort William but could be quite hard work coming back uphill especially if you are elderly or infirm. The solution is to get a taxi back which were quite reasonable
We found it exceptional value, £137 for half board, especially when it includes coach travel from your local area plus a trip out every day, just not worth taking your car.
