Everything was great at Myrtle Bank Guest House. Really conformable and very clean, nice location and lovely view to the lake from our room. We would definitely recommend this location.

Myrtle Bank Guest House has a prime location overlooking Loch Linnhe only 5 mins walk to the centre of Fort William. It is very easy to find on the main road into Fort William from the south. We stayed here with family for 2 separate nights on our way to and from the Hebrides. We had 2 rooms in the garden annex at the back of the main house which was extremely quiet. On our return journey we had a room at the back of the house and a room at the front. I cannot find fault with anything. The rooms were very comfortable, all bedding was very clean, we had an en-suite shower room which was spotless and included shower gels, shampoo, soap. The rooms had TV's, tea and coffee making facilities, hairdryer etc. Breakfast was either a traditional Scottish cooked breakfast or a healthy choice of fruit, yoghurt etc. - it was more than adequate. I have never stopped at a b & b before (I normally prefer hotels), however Myrtle Bank was outstanding and I would not hesitate to return again (hopefully soon!). NB: Payment must be made by cash or cheque. If you are reading this review, do not hesitate and book early to avoid disappointment!

Room Tip: If you prefer a quiet room, ask for a room at the back of the house

Excellent rooms. Excellent location. We were fortunate to get a loch facing room. Large and comfortable room that rival the best of hotels. Large, clean bathroom with a great shower. Tea/coffee in the room and soap / shampoo / clean and laundered towels in the bathroom. Would recommend it as a first option for anyone visiting Fort William.

Only stayed for one night as we were just passing through. The room was absolutely fantastic. Lovely and clean. Felt like five star accommodation. Great view of Loch Linney. Breakfast was good and staff very friendly. Would definitely stay again.

Location: Right next to the main road (this is the main road to and from the highlands but it’s not the exactly M3!) so it’s easy to find and therefore has some rooms with views to die for. It’s a 5 minute walk to Fort William high street so very handy for all the restaurants and pubs so we didn’t need to drive.
Our room: It was very clean BUT we had only a basin so had to share the communal loo’s & shower rooms. If I’d know this in advance I would have paid extra for one of the uber rooms. It also had zero storage space but since we were only there for a few nights wasn’t an issue.
The breakfasts were really nice (although the porridge is made with water not milk) and they didn’t mind me nicking some milk for my flask of tea which summed everyone up nicely; friendly and welcoming. Although as others have stated its cash only!
If you’re going to stay I’d advise sVery friendly, very conveniently located, clean & tidy.are well worth the extra and are en suite with loads of storage.

Room Tip: Spend an extra couple of quid for the rooms at the front for the uninterrupted views across the loch...
