We recently spent a night at the Lawriestone Guest House. Upon first greeting the host felt a bit stiff, but soon thereafter he warmed, completely reversing our original reaction. The rooms were clean and lovely, the view onto the Loch was excellent, and all in all we were left with a very positive memory. It is a quiet location, a bit out of the center of town, but the walk was not more than 5 minutes. WiFi worked perfectly, the TV was fine, all in all I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this B&B...although I would suggest older guests might find it more appealing.

Have stayed here before and got in here late evening as I hadn't booked any accommodation. Welcome was warm considering the hour, admittedly there were a surprising number of properties with vacancies. Stayed in a twin room which was comfortable and warmed up when heating was put on, TV decent. I had to go early in the morning but the owner made me a basic breakfast which was thoughtful. Shower and bathroom as well as the room itself were very clean. WIFI wasn't set up, did have to find out password but sadly router wasn't switched on but that was a small criticism. Overall a decent B&B, would be useful if they took cards rather than just cash.

We stayed 1 night on our first trip to Scotland and were taken back by the lovely old building outside and in. However it is a place you feel like you are an intrusion into the owners lives.
Not a warm welcome like experienced else where in Scotland. It was a bit like being in a musuem/library. Dont touch and be quiet.
The rooms were lovely and clean. The ensuite small but stll managable. Breakfast was ok with the lady of the establishment more talkative.
Views out the front onto the Loch were great but there is quite a number of B&B's along this road to take a pick of.

This B&B existed for the hosts and not the guests. One of those places where you feel you should be on your best behaviour whisper to your partner and put a foot out of place at your peril. Welcome matters - we had ridden in the rain 250 miles and took our boots off in the hall out of respect for the grandiose high quality furnishings. There we were tired and dripping on the door mat- first thing the host asked was that I move my bike (then and there) because it was in the host's car reversing line!. So back on with lace up boots to move the machine 25 feet. We were only stopping one night.
Breakfast is 0830- yup thats it. Lady of the house more pleasant and tried hard to make the breakfast (average quality) go well. Views over the Loch from the bedroom is top drawer stuff.
WIFI available (if you ask)! Average score for location because it is a bit of a walk out of town - no problem if you are fit.

Room Tip: Views over the Lock at the front of the premises are stunning.

We stayed two nights for the Jacobite Steam Train experience whilst on a touring holiday with friends. The Lawriestone is a beautiful large house with an immaculate garden opposite the loch on the road into Fort William within easy walking distance of the town. Rooms are spacious and well furnished and the whole place is spotless. We were given a warm welcome and had an excellent choice at breakfast. We would recommend this as a great base to explore the area but endorse another reviewers warning about the timing of the Jacobite as if you book the afternoon trip it doesn't get back to Fort William until after 8pm which is rather late to check into a B&B.

Room Tip: Front rooms get a view of the loch. Second floor rooms have velux windows.
