Mansefield Guest House
Ranked #29 of 111 Fort William B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 June 2013

"This B&B is recommended by the AA, and has 4 stars from the Scottish Tourist Board, as well as excellent reviews on Trip Advisor, so I was surprised to find myself questioning why I didn't fully agree with them." I agree with Norfolktraveller below. Our room was spotless, too but cramped & there were lots of do's & don'ts listed on a dressing table (common sense some of them) So it did feel a bit like we were being told off in advance
There was also a strong feeling that if you were staying more than overnight, then the hosts would expect you not to be in the B&B during the day (notes to this effect left with the lists of do's & don'ts)
Unfortunately we did not feel at ease upon arrival, but the atmosphere had improved by breakfast time (the brekkie was lovely)
The house & garden are lovely. The area of Corpach & Fort William are absolutely wonderful.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back have lovely views.

Our first trip to this beautiful part of the country. Mansfield house is a gem of a find.
The owners Toby and Bev are wonderful hosts .our room was lovely. spotlessly clean ,massive super king bed .fluffy white towels fresh every day. We slept really well.!
Our room over looked the garden and had superb views of Ben Nevis . Close by is the picturesque calodonian canal and neptunes staircase.( a series of locks) fantastic area for walking.close to fort William,.( an easy picturesque walk) the Ben Nevis distillery is close by ,also corpache railway station is a 10 minute walk away .the picturesque train ride to Malaig is well worth the trip.
Breakfasts were a lovely start to the day! Try eggs Mansfield a real change to the normal eggs and bacon. We will never forget our stay and the feeling of reaching the top of Ben Nevis , fantastic !!
Hope to return ,would recommend to anyone.

Room Tip: Room 4 was lovely . Away from the road ,over looking the garden , views of Ben Nevis, huge bed.

This B&B is recommended by the AA, and has 4 stars from the Scottish Tourist Board, as well as excellent reviews on Trip Advisor, so I was surprised to find myself questionning why I didn't fully agree with them. The room was spotlessly clean, tastefully decorated, although a little cramped due to the addition of an en suite. Also, I'm afraid my breakfast was disappointing (soggy toast!!!! and would have expected a more generous helping of smoked salmon with my scrambled eggs, given that we were in the middle of the Scottish Highlands). We had a good walk along the canal to a local pub where we had a good evening meal overlooking Ben Nevis - fantastic!

As a coach driver I have stayed in many B&B s. and hotels. By far this place is excellent room was clean tidy ,comfortable bed, breakfast very good, not many places offer salmon for breakfast , evening meal freshly made and big portions, the owners. Toby. & Bev. Could not be more welcoming . Nothing was to much trouble. Those people giving negative comments should get a life. I would recommend this place and I have to other coach drivers and the country.

We stayed for one night as part of a tour of Scotland. Initially we were a little disappointed about how far out of Fort William itself the B&B is, but that's my fault for not doing my research and in truth, it's all the better for it. Around the corner is the Caledonian Canal and it's a lovely walk from there to the nearest restaurant, with some stunning views of the mountains.

The house is lovely and has character. The decor is not the most modern, the room wasn't enormous, but was very clean. There's no traffic noise and plenty of parking space.

The highlight for us were the hosts, Toby and Bev. They were really friendly and shared their obvious love of the area by passing on some good tips about places to see. We had a great welcome and Toby couldn't have been more helpful when we checked in. Breakfast was top notch too. We would certainly recommend staying here.

I spent three nights here during a short trip to the Scottish Highlands. The Mansefield Guest House in located right behind Corpach train station, around 20 minutes from the town centre of Fort William. It is a very quiet and quite beautiful location, with small but very clean and confortable rooms, some with views of the Ben Nevis mountain. But what really stands here is the local knowledge of owners Bev and Toby - and their superb cooking skills. Chose to have dinner at the B&B one night and prove for yourself. I would sure recommend the place and return on a next opportunity.
