Bank Street Lodge
Ranked #16 of 21 Hotels in Fort William
Reviewed 25 March 2011

Just what we expected, it is a budget hotel but we had a clean, tidy ensuite room for £40 in a great location close to the town centre. If we want 4 star we will pay £120 but this was adequete for our stay.

We stayed in the ensuite rooms on the first floor, the rooms were clean and tidy and the staff were very helpful. We have stayed in better furnished rooms. however they were at least twice the price. All in all it was what we expected.

We booked a 'family room' for five for £90 on a bank holiday, so perhaps I should not complain much. The staff were friendly and helpful, the location was splendid (just a block from the high street and a three minute stroll to the lake). However the room was very small, had two bunk beds which I did not expect when booking. I slept on one of the bunks, it was making a lot of creeking noises (I am 70 kgs) and did not really lead to a good night's sleep. All of us were up by 5, which eventually helped us as it was a gorgeous day. You get what you pay for and it is just a super-cheap accomodation on the top of a backpacker's hostel so no complaints! However, if you are not that fit and a bit on the plump side, make sure to request for a room with no bunk beds.

We stayed here for 2 days in a twin ensuite room. They also have hostel accommodation if you're travelling on your own. Everything was clean but basic. Very small bathroom. We had a room on the street side and there was always a lot of noise late at night and early in the morning as people from the hostel who smoked used to gather there to talk.
The kitchen of the hostel is very, very small; you could only be in there with 2 or 3 people at the time or you couldn't move anymore. There were 4 basic hotplates which took a long time to heat up and the dining room was at the same time the TV room.
You don't need to stay in the centre of town to do Fort William, Ben Nevis and everything else there is to see. It's less expensive to go a little bit further out of Fort William and you can still do the same things like taking a Gondola up the mountain, visiting Glenfinnan viaduct, etc.
A good alternative and only a few miles from Fort William is Corran Bunkhouse in Onich and half the price, cleaner, newer, and more modern.
I'd only choose Bank Street Lodge if I absolutely needed to stay in the centre of town.

Just needed a place to sleep for 1 night in Ft William. Decent sized room with clean en suite bath (shower only). We noticed beds in UK more firm than US but these beds were just plain hard. No breakfast. Adequate restaurant in front of hotel. Front desk people we encountered were efficient but not friendly. Adequate housing- not a huge selection to choose from in Ft William. I recommend it with reservations.

nice hostel, ok rooms, decent showers, friendly service. ideally near tesco's which opens at 7am for food supplies before going up the hill.

the only problem was the (and i dont know if it's linked to the hostel) absolutely RANK Stables restaurant next door. £12 for a pizza soggy with mountains of cheap cheese and grease. Miserable, unprofessional service, too. I was disgusted by what they served.
