“Nice all-round experience”
Reviewed 30 November 2011

I arrived by car and found the hotel very easy to find - didn't need to use the satnav. Its kinda in a mini-commercial estate with a McDonalds, Brewers Fayre, Morrisons etc. I cant speak of any views as it was raining heavily and blowing a gale both when i arrived and the next day. There were a lot of car parking spaces available which always helps take the edge off the stress after a long drive. I got a nice friendly welcome at reception and check-in was quick and professional. The reception area was small and basic. The room was easy to find and I liked the little messages on doors reminding people to be quiet in the corridors.(Not that the drunk middle-aged woman and her gaggle of friends took the slightest bit of notice of in the early hours). The room was spotless and there was a very large and comfortable bed. The bathroom was also spotless. Overall, the hotel was basic. However, it doesn't pretend to be anything other than a good value, clean but basic hotel. It is the first time I have stayed in a Premier Inn and I felt it was of a similar standard to Travelodges I have stayed in. The pub next door was welcoming and the food provided was of a good standard. It was excellent that they served food up until 10pm as I arrived late and starving. It was a little bit annoying that there was no internal access to the pub so I had to go outside in a severe gale to get to the pub. The breakfast the following morning was plentiful and the staff friendly. I paid £74 for 1 night including breakfast for 2 people. I thought this was a fair enough price for what I got. The boilers broke down overnight which meant no hot water in the morning. When i checked out, I was given an apology and an explanation without having to complain about it. I was told that it had been impossible to get someone out to fix it at short notice. Maybe that is true, maybe it is just that a short notice person cost a lot more. Overall, it was a friendly and welcoming hotel. It was very clean and fixtures and fittings were all of a good standard. It made a good overnight hotel to break up a journey. For the price I paid, for me to have given it 5 stars, I would have wanted there to be some little 'extras'. Also, the boiler breaking down and the lack of hot water was a tad annoying to say the least. So, 4 stars from me.

We travelled by train from East Kilbride Glasgow. A ticket for the over 55s was £19.00 Each return. Almost door to door. We also got a good deal from Premier Inns on the internet, The hotel is spotless, warm, with good service, what more could you ask. We have travelled up north on many occasions but this was our first by rail. No traffic, no hastle, just a relaxing 3Hr 30min sight seeing journey, with herds of deer and beautifull scenery that you will only see by rail. Tea, Coffee, Drinks, and sandwiches can also be had on board. Treat yourself.

Room Tip: I don't know if there is a bad one? and we forgot the camera.

Usual Premier Inn standard - clean, comfy and easily accessible with parking. Food is served from the adjoining pub - good standard, clean and friendly.

Would stay here again when travelling/ touring round. Staff VERY friendly and helpful. :)

Room Tip: All rooms are the same (unless disabled access/ fittings required)

This is the second time I have stayed at this Premier Inn, on trips up to the Highlands and Islands. Its an ideal break point for journeys further up north, and is surrounded by great views for the mountains.

The staff in both the hotel and pub next door are friendly and helpful, and the rooms are aways very clean with good beds.

Breakfast is fine, but its cheaper to go to the Mcdonalds next door, or the Morrisons Cafe.

We stayed two Nights in this hotel but the First One was Not planned before. Because our booked hotel was worse we drove to Fort William to ask for a room at this Premier Inn because we knew it from other trips.
At 4:30 AM we finally arrived and then it was the best service we ever had. The receptionist was very friendly, helpful and patient alltough we had Problems with the credit Card.
The Short Night there showed us that it was the best decision to come over here.
The Second Night was good and restorative, too. It was quiet, the mattress was Good, and it was very clean.
The location of it is centered, there is a restaurant next to it (Loch Iall) and a McDonalds and a Morrisson.
It is the perfect Hotel to stay in Fort William.

Premier Inn, Fort William is clean, comfortable and friendly - a little impersonal, but it is a Premier Inn! I arrived by train, and found access on foot from the station a little awkward. I will describe it as I walked back to the station and the town centre: Leave the hotel, and cross the car park. Climb a short grassy bank which gets you onto a road. Cross the road into Macdonald's car park, and head for the far corner. There is a footpath here that takes you to a large puddle - it is better to cross the gravel (there is a handy manhole cover to keep the mud off your shoes), and this leads to a zebra crossing. At the other end of the crossing you go through some bushes, climb over a low fence, and dodge the traffic going in and out of Morrison's. From there it is a short walk diagonally across Morrison's car park to the Station - easy really! If there is a better or more obvious way, I failed to find it over four days.

Stayed only for one night for a cheap getaway. Can't fault anything. Great room, food, location and service. Staff here have great banter which made our stay so much more enjoyable. Never seen a hotel room which is so spotless!!
