Well what can i say, i have stayed here in the past and been brilliant. I was doing the great glen way by canoe. So due to location this was perfect. As i wad bringing my canoe with me i contacted the hostel in advance regarding somewhere secure to store the canoe. So i tried to contact them the day before arrival no answer or reply to me calls or email.
So we arrived around 1 out if office hours so we found the number provided to contact staff it was ringing but the mobile had been left in the office. So i just left the canoe and gear round the back. I had to take my truck up to inverness. By the time i got back was around 6 pm with the office meant to be open at 5pm i thought i could check in and sory out my gear to be more secure. When we got there office still shut. So contacted staff mobile again, still left in office.
There was people sitting in the dinning area and lounge but they were also waiting to check in. While waiting thevpublic phone wrang we answered it, it was a guest also checking if they were open yet as they went into fort william to wait. The phone wrang a second time. This time the manager the owner. We told him there is no staff, so he wrang the staff member on his personal mobile and within minutes someone appears half asleep and think he had also been smokin weed as you can smell it.
Apart from that everything elsr was perfect.
