“Homely Yet Professional”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 December 2006

Picked this bed and breakfast mainly due to recommendations here. I was not disappointed. Lovely view. Great location (if you have a car; very short drive into the town center). Nice rooms. And great hosts. I wish Ben Nevis was as kind to the hill-walkers!

  • Liked — Great service from friendly hosts.
  • Disliked — For a bed and breakfast - can't complain.
  • Tips/Secrets — Kitchen closes by 9pm I believe but you can call ahead if you are going to be a few minutes later. Only other food option is in town, which is not far at all if you have a car.

My wife and I, plus two friends have just returned home from a short stay at the Clan MacDuff. October is Low Season so we got an excellent price for 3 nights DBB.
This is a traditional, well-run Scottish Hotel (and I hope "traditional" doesn't put off the younger readers). The bedrooms are spotless with TV and tea/coffee making facilities. The maids clean them daily to the highest of standards. We had a 'premium' room with a balcony on the upper floor with a magnificent view over the loch.
The food is first class. An excellent cooked breakfast with filling (three-course and coffee) dinners based on local ingredients - home-made soup, beef, pork, fish, (and always a vegetarian option), etc. - served by hard-working, friendly restaurant staff. Quite a wide wine list at very reasonable prices and a well-stocked, quiet, relaxed bar for pre- and post-dinner drinks. Everyone we spoke with was friendly and helpful.
The hotel is situated about two miles south of Fort William. We once walked into the town in about 35 minutes but usually travelled by car. The hotel is a great base for exploring Lochaber and a run out to Mallaig via the white sands of Morar is an excellent way to spend 3 or 4 hours.
All in all an excellent holiday. I have no hesitation in recommending the Clan MacDuff and would like to visit it again when next in the area.
