Reviewed 15 March 2010

We stayed here on the winter warmer deal which was great, food and service good. Couldn't fault it. You get what you pay for so dont expect 4 star. The rooms are average. The leisure centre is nice, great for relaxing after a hard days activities. We came up for the snowboarding, plenty of snow however visability was bad. If you are thinking of coming up for skiing check the Nevis Range website first.

The Ben Nevis Hotel and Leisure Club doesn't pretend to be a 5* hotel. It is, however, a great base for outdoor types to explore the Ben Nevis area for mountaineering, skiing etc.
10 mins walk from Fort William town, and 10 mins drive from the Nevis Range base, it suffers slightly from noise from the A82.
The hotel is part-way through re-furbishment. The best rooms are really great, but some of the others....well, check before you check in!
Breakfast is a generous buffet of all your favourites. Loading themselves up for the day are the full range of mountain explorers of all ages getting ready for their adventures.
Dinner is reasonably priced....especially if you go for the dinner-bed-breakfast-skipass package which is fantastic value. There's plenty of room in the bar and lobby for people to hang out all evening, not to mention the beautiful swimming pool (with spa, sauna, steamroom) reserved for residents.
We felt that the staff made a huge effort to ensure our stay was pleasant, and we were very sorry to leave.

Other than a good location for Fort William, this hotel is very poor. The rooms are tired, the staff not particularly interested, the outside of the hotel looks awful and breakfast was like something from a motorway cafe...and for £125 a night, this was truly awful value for money.

If I were the owners, I would raise the hotel to the ground and start again. Not the worst place I've ever stayed, but overall pretty terrible.

Superb special winter warmer deal 2 nights DBB, £69 per adult, Kid 1/2 price. Hotel Clean, friendly helpful staff. Excellent meals. 9 year old child got to choose from kids menu 3 course meal and felt very special. Leisure Club lovely with swimming pool, towels supplied. Games kept at reception to keep kids entertained while we could relax in the lounge / bar. 5 Mins from Ski Slope. Will certainly return soon. Good base for skiiers or hill walkers.

Located on the north side of Fort Wiliam the hotel provides a clear view of Ben Nevis and is in a great position for exploring Loch Laggan and the Great Glen. It is close to the Caledonian Canal, Spean Bridge and Invergarry

We had a great stay in the Ben Nevis hotel which is in a great location next to Nevis Range ski resort. The food was great and we had exellent service throughout our stay. The ski resort was exellent and we had great fun leaning to ski. The welcoming pool and sauna was wonderful at the end of a hard days skiing. the beds were very comfortable and the breakfasts were exellent.
