“Very nice hotel with great view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 September 2013

Took a room with my wife for the weekend after many B&Bs in Fort Williams had no vacancies.
I was surprised for the better with the size of the room, the room cleanliness, the hotel breakfast and the spirit selection at the hotel bar.
All in all I spent 3 nights while taking day trips to Glencoe, Loch Ness, Inverness and Skye.
As this hotel is outside the town center and not within walking distance it's suitable only if you have a vehicle.

Reception staff very friendly and helpful,room was clean but a bit dated,only had breakfast which was very nice but the waiting staff could have been a bit more helpful as guests were wandering in didn't know what to do as the waiting staff just stood in a line with a dour expression on their faces.the hotel is not too near fort william so if your looking to have a wee drink its a fair walk back.When we visit fort william again we will be looking for a hotel nearer the town Centre.

Room Tip: We booked a loch view room but our windows faced up the loch not straight onto it.

Taking my Grandweans on the Harry Potter Steam Train from Fort William to Mallaig was a marvellous day out. Jules and I decided to travel up the night before and booked a Superior Double Room. We splashed out £112 for the night (B&B Only) and looked forward to a romantic stay.
The view directly facing the Loch was beautiful ( though at home we overlook the Clyde and Holy Loch and find that far nicer).
The moderately sized double room , however, was somewhat disappointing being typically dated with worn furniture , mismatched bathroom , and a completely mystifying shower / bath mixer tap that this technophobe failed to master. Sound insulation was not good.
Food was OK but nothing special, and although the lonely kipper at breakfast was tasty I had to get my fill with toast and Jules commented on the lack of a yoghurt.
Fort William is one of the most expensive places to stay but has a lot to offer the visitor. If you want to enjoy the view there are loads of B&B overlooking the Loch at a much more realistic price. That's what we shall do when the younger Grandweans are ready to take the Steamer to Mallaig.

Room Tip: For stays in Fort William book well in advance for better selection of accommodation.

The Clan Macduff Hotel. Fort William 16th August 2013
We stayed here for our first night on our trip around the Scottish Highlands, Great Hotel perfect location for our first night as we had drove up from Manchester.
Our room was a little small but had all the facilities that we wanted clean and fresh. We chose to eat in the restaurant of the hotel the menu was ample for what we wanted and the food was excellent, great staff attended all our needs.
Breakfast was excellent too, though we had to eat in the bar area as the restaurant was very full, the waitresses set up our table in a matter of seconds. It was nice to sit and eat breakfast in the bar as the restaurant was very warm being so full.
Would defiantly stay here again. Well done Macduff Hotel

We had a long and hot journey thankfully without children. When I get to a hotel I expect to be able to get a drink (soft or alco) with out raised eyebrows from reception staff as this is an unusual request . We did get a drink but other guests came to the bar and left, a loss to the hotel. Note bar closed, opens at 6pm. Bit of a flap from reception about card payments too. Room clean if a little dated, could not fault bar service and staff, breakfast could not nit pick about anything, lovely staff. Credit to lady in charge of bar, you offer exceptional service.

Room Tip: Upstairs loch view.

Hotel was really nice, not too expensive. The location of the hotel is excellent, a nice pleasant 40 minute walk into the town centre. Rooms were satisfactory, beds comfy, shower easy to work.
Breakfast was ok apart from the thick lump of raw haggis that was served up.
Would definetely return to this hotel.

We stayed in the hotel for three nights and found the rooms to be clean and comfortable, the staff friendly and the breakfasts very good. Sitting out the front of an evening looking out over the loch is fantastic!

Room Tip: There is a premium for rooms with a view. The view from the bar and restaurant is excellent, it is...
