“Great rates, great Hotel”
Reviewed 4 May 2011

Very busy at check in but was greeted so warmly, nothing was too much trouble. Took our little dog with us and the room we were given was spotless, even in the passageways you could smell polish. The bed was very comfortable and cannot emphasise too much of the cleanliness of everywhere. The breakfast is waitress served, all of whom were smiling and very attentive. The food, lovely. Great place, would definitely recommend to friends and Family.

We have returned to stay at the Clan Macduff Hotel in Fort William on several occasions and in our experience this hotel has consistently strived to provide a friendly and professional service for its guests. The hotel has a stunning viewpoint overlooking Loch Linnhe and is roughly a 20 minute walk away from the centre of Fort William (the walk is a very pleasant experience). We always enjoy a walk over to the Loch across the road from the hotel where you can see a variety of birdlife and sometimes catch sight of seals swimming in the Loch.

The hotel service is excellent and over the years we have come to know some of the staff members quite well - they are a credit to the hotel and their professionalism, engaging personalities and their commitment to guests is admirable. The hotel provides an array of choice within their breakfast menu (our friends loved the locally sourced kippers); the food is very tasty and well-presented. The breakfast service is efficient and is especially enjoyable when you acquire a table looking out at the wonderful view.
For other times of the day guests have a choice of two comfortable seating areas in the hotel where they can relax and order tea/coffee and biscuits while browsing through a choice of reading material provided by the hotel or simply chill out while admiring the scenery.

For evening times there is an on-site restaurant or you can take the more relaxed option and order a bar meal (my husband particularly liked the venison sausages) and relax with a beer or spoil yourself with a good quality Scottish malt whisky from the extensive choice behind the bar.

We will be returning to the Clan Macduff hotel as it has consistently proven to be an ideal base from which to tour the Highlands - our thanks to the Fyffe family and to the hotel staff, we had a wonderful time, see you all next year!

We have stayed at this hotel several times and it has been spot on each time. Very welcoming. It is always consistant. It is great value for money compared to the many other hotels we have stayed in :)

Yet again we have had a wonderfully relaxing time at the Clan MacDuff for the third time this year. We originally found this hotel on the Visit Scotland website back in 2007. What a find! We have returned every year since for at least two trips a year. From our recommendation several friends have stayed at the Clan MacDuff and have vowed to return. I have read some of the reviews written, most of which are from people who have had the same positive experience as ourselves. However I feel I have to comment on the very few negative points some people have raised. Comments that the Hotel needs updating must be made by people who have completely missed the point. The theme of the Clan MacDuff, I feel, is traditional. You could be in any hotel, anywhere in the world if the floors were wooden, the seats leather and an overkill of chrome! As for breakfast, this has always been quite good, given that you have a choice of juice, plus cereal, plus porridge, plus a Scottish breakfast and a never ending supply of toast. If the choice is not to your liking then ask - if you don't ask, you don't get! The Fyffe family and their staff have always been most accommodating when we have made requests that have differed slightly to their norm. I can only really say that the hotel has improved over the time, especially the bar meals and the specials board, 4* choice, portion and value for money - well done. Whisky menu is also a winner. Rooms are very clean and comfortable. If you are staying for a few days, the choice to have the slightly bigger room is brilliant, especially as we have all our bike gear to store. Okay, so the rooms on the back of the hotel don't have a view, but that goes with the territory of the Scottish landscape, and they are very private. Very friendly and helpful staff. We are already booked for Easter, so looking forward to experiencing the breathtaking scenery and the welcome and comfort of the Clan MacDuff after a long days biking! So see you Easter for the first visit this year - Oh, Mr Fyffe, any chance of some Scottish kippers for breakfast?!?

This is the second time in 7 years that we stayed at this property and it was just as good as I remembered - excellent in every way. We stayed 2 nights. The room, staff and food is fantastic and the view is beautful. I highly recommended this hotel!

We stayed 3 nights and had a clean and comfortable room with a nice view across the Loch. The bar , dining room and tv room had big picture windows to take in the panoramic views. You have the option of either eating in the bar or the restaurant but we chose the bar meals which were good value for money and tasty. Breakfast in the restaurant was waitress service and the staff were friendly and attentive. Very pleasant stay , also there is a quiet room for reading etc. Clean hotel and well appointed, would stay again.
