Ossian's Hotel
Ranked #20 of 21 Hotels in Fort William
Reviewed 22 August 2013

The positives are the location in the center of the country and the fact that we found a room late at evening. In a few minutes walking you can go to see the start of the Jacobite train. The accommodation is not the best but it is cheap. Definitely not recommended breakfast (to be paid in addition).

Stayed on a Saturday night after a 24 hours West Highland Way on bike's. Disco very loud. Hotel looks and feels like it is in need of a revamp. Very much budget accommodation. Fine if you can accept that.

I stayed here with my mother in the twin en-suite for Sunday night. We found the staff to be friendly and informative. The room was basic (as you'd expect for the price) but better than hostels I've stayed in and very clean. No breakfast but the location slap bang in the middle of the main street meant this wasn't an issue with a variety of places to choose from. Not much parking next to the building but we used the central car park which is very close (its short stay in the day but free overnight), the long stay car park is only a couple of hundred yards away too. We would definitely stay here again and maybe bring the dogs next time!

Would help if they used some of the money they charged to put in the electricity meter so they could turn immerser on and their was warm water in shower and wash hand basin,,,, ooh and take a needle and thread to sew up the hole in the duvet cover,,, cold,,dingy,,dirty,,dated and damp.. Certainly not worth £48 for a double room,, couldn't sleep for wash hand basin pipes rattling at random times,, wouldn't make cup of tea due to filthy kettle, television pic kept freezing,,, place needed dusted and hoovered,,,

Room Tip: Their isn't a good room,,, !!!

Great value for money, cheap and cheerfull and really friendly staff! They don't pretend to be the most luxurious in town and charge accordingly. My girlfriend and I had been round several places in Fort William before we found Ossians, even booked into one hotel and after paying £75 found someone's sock in the bed. The Ossians was less money and cleaner than the first place. For that price you can not expect a four poster bed and dressing gowns. They even have rooms for smokers! Last thing you want to do is run outside for a cigarette as soon as you wake up.
