“Very pleasant stay, can't fault it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2012

Stayed there few years ago, very clean, tidy hotel. Location superb, we had a nice stroll on a stony beach after dinner.
The best thing though was the breakfast. Fresh produce, and the rough oatcakes with butter - to die for.
Highly recommend to anyone visiting Scottish Highlands.

Excellent location. Had lake facing room with a surcharge added on.
Breakfast very good. Didn't use bar / restaurant facilities. Need to drive into Fort William

Room Tip: Pay the extra for a lake facing room!

Lovely hotel with spectaular views and comfortable rooms all at a great price. The staff were very friendly and helpful and I must make special mention of the waitress who was in Harry Potter as a child( sorry I do not know here name) as she was one of thos people who goes the extra mile and made our stay even more enjoyable.

Room Tip: Book in time to get a room at the front with the spectacular view of the loch!

I stayed here with my husband we had an enjoyable stay the rooms are spacious and comfortable. The views from the dinnig /bar area are fabulous looking over the Loch. The highlight has to be the breakfast they a have varied selection of hot breakfast including hagisld . we went to climb ben nevi which was only a few miles from here and just outside fort william,i woulh highly recommend staying here.

We chose this hotel for a one night stop over on our way to Loch Ness and purely made the decision based on the name!
When we arrived we were impressed by the reception staff who took the time to show us to our room and tell us where the bar and restaurant were. Our room was at the back and had a view of a retaining wall but that was what we expected as we knew when we booked we didn't have a view of the loch.
The bar was friendly and welcoming with a good menu and over 50 different malts to choose from. Staff were also helpful on this front offering advice on which to try.
The view from the bar and restaurant is spectacular and, because the hotel is slightly elevated, not blocked by the road outside.
In the morning a walk outside into the car park was well worth it for a few picturs of the flat calm loch.
Overall we were very impressed by Clan Macduff and wished that we were staying there for more that the one night. It was by far the best of the 3 hotels we had in the highlands and also the cheapest.
Highly recommended for a visit.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back have no view but its not a long walk outside or to the lounge bar!

This hotel will be rated as much to individuals' personal standards as expectations; and this might go some way to explain why some reviewers' experiences were better than others. We chose what we considered to be a low cost hotel where we could base ourselves for a week on our first ever visit to the Highlands. We then chose what seems to have been one of their best rooms, overlooking the loch and with a small balcony. The view is stunning, as are the views from the dining room and lounge bar. The fact remains that the same view includes the car park and the main Fort William to Glasgow road. Unusually for me this did not detract too much and there is little traffic at night. My advice to the really noise sensitive or jet lagged would be to take the cheaper rooms overlooking the back. I liked the fact that there was NO airconditioning or all night humming noises!
We saw little evidence of children or coach parties or rowdy groups. It is 2 miles outside the town but a taxi costs only £5.00 to the High St or £6 to the station. There are plenty of taxis!
Yes it is a little dated, but it is extremely well run with friendly and professional staff. We never had to wait long for anything. What we saw was spotlessly clean and meticulously maintained. We liked the waitress service for breakfasts. Lounge bar food was a bit hit and miss. Their selection of malt whiskies was impressive. We thankfully had no problems with wi-fi ! Fort William was a good base for our agenda but we were pleased to be away from the town itself

Room Tip: We were in Room 42 on the first floor. 40 & 44 would be similar.
