Kismet Villa
Ranked #108 of 111 Fort William B&B and Inns
Reviewed 25 March 2007

This place is an absolute dump. The mildew stench was so overbearing that we couldn't tolerate spending the night there.

Stayed: March 2007

I have mixed views about Kismet Villa. On the positive side, the hosts were lovely people, very chatty and friendly, and guests are made to feel very welcome. I stayed in a single room with use of a shared shower room. The bedroom was newly decorated and very clean, with some nice touches (individual soap, shower gel, flannel; towelling robe; tea and coffee making facilities; homemade cake; bottled water for drinking; TV and DVD player). Breakfast was brilliant, with lots of choice. On the negative side, although the bedrooms are newly decorated, decoration in the rest of the house was quite old and a bit tatty (wallpaper missing in the shower room, for example). It might be that the owners are trying to do a bit at a time, which is fair enough, and I have to say that the shower room was spotless. The owners have a large dog, which is kept out of sight most of the time, but if you're at all sensitive to the smell of dog, you can definitely tell that it's around.

To sum up, I would say that I found Kismet Villa to be fine for a brief stay, but felt that the £30 a night price was high, given that the single rooms aren't en suite and parts of the house aren't brilliant.
