“What is there not to like?”
Reviewed 2 July 2012

I had intended to write this review anyway but felt constrained to do so after reading the review of Mark G.Whilst I realise that each review is subjective , that one described something that was so far removed from my own experience - and that of other reviewers and guests{if the visitors' book is an accurate reflection}
We travelled by public transport and had stated in our e-mail that we would ring with our e.t.a.I forgot to do so until we arrived in Fort William.There was no suggestion that my oversight had caused a problem and on arrival we were given a warm welcome and shown to our room. As several have mentioned the house has a stunning view from the front over Loch Linnhe .We were therefore slightly disappointed to be shown to a room at the rear of the house, The house only has 3 rooms for guests and we recognised that if a front facing room was not available then there was nothing that anyone could do.
The room we were given was fantastic- it is enormous- definitely the biggest we have ever seen in a bed and breakfast.The furniture was of good quality -and all co-ordinated=with an incredible number of drawers {15!!!!] not to mention shelves and wardrobe space.The en-suite was also spacious with ample shelving for storage.
The well-stocked refreshment tray was replenished on a regular basis - something which does not always seem to happen and towels were changed daily if required.
Breakfasts are served at set times to suit your requirements and it is necessary to choose your menu the night before together with your reqiured time.I know some may not like this approach but it does ensure that breakfast is freshly cooked .As a testament to the comfort of the beds we almost missed breakfast but we could not detect even the merest hint of rebuke-rather a sense of satisfaction that we had found the beds and our room to be so comfortable.In fact from that point on we found a growing rapport with Pam which flourished throughout our stay and developed to encompass Ray when he was our waiter at the week-end.I also noticed that the buffet section of the breakfast {normally cereals ,yoghurts[in a bowl of ice -nice touch]croissants etc }had expanded to include cold meats and cheeses on the morning that 2 German {?}ladies were at breakfast. All that and a superb view to the loch from the dining-area.
The only downside to our 4 nights in Fort William was that the weather was unfortunately typically that of the Highlands -overcast and wet.Far from being irritated or uninterested in what we could do we found Pam and Ray were more than happy to provide information and leaflets about various local attractions.
All in all this was a thoroughly enjoyable stay in a spotlessly clean home at a very reasonable price. We cannot recommend Ardlinnhe too highly.

Room Tip: Dont be disappointed if you are given the room at the back- the standard more than makes upfor lack...

We spent a night at this B&B which was far from pleasant. Prior to our departure we read positive reviews about Ardlinnhe B&B which led us to believe that it will be a nice experience.

As all the reviews state the B&B has a great location in front of the Loch, is clean and the breakfast was OK. We were looking for a pleasant night similar to our previous night at inverness.

What disappointed us was the cold welcoming of the owner Pam. Only having been there for 5 minutes, she was clearly irritated by us asking for simple advice. She was hence unapproachable.

In the morning, she was not there to greet us and scolded us for being 5 minutes late for breakfast. Strangely enough she seemed to be eager on us leaving.

Whilst we were still at the breakfast table, we were surprised that the host started clearing the food before we were even ready.

After breakfast she rushed to our room to first and foremost collect the money due after which she told us to wait whilst she checked that our room was in good order.

On leaving we bid her farewell by wishing her a 'good day' and the tone of Pam's reply 'I will' suggested that she will be having a good day once we have departed.

We honestly felt that we were highly unwelcome and were being thrown out which led us to be extremely eager to leave as soon as possible. We could not wait any longer!!

After the way we were treated we therefore strongly do not recommend to anyone to stay at this guest house.

Stayed here one night in Aug 2011. Proprietor, Pam, is highly organised and professional. On arrival the whole house was spotless and ready. Rooms, bedding, ensuites were immaculate. Breakfast was very good; again served with professional, no fuss.
Views from the breakfast room excellent.
We spent 5 weeks travelling around the UK and this was one of the best B&Bs we stayed in.
There is a pub up the road serving excellent dinners.

Room Tip: Book early. This place is very popular. Ask for a room overlooking the lake. Unfortunately, these ar...

An excellent location close to the amenities of Fort William; panoramic views across Loch Linnhe in some bedrooms, surprisingly quiet nights in exceptionally clean and comfortable bedrooms; a warm welcome and hearty breakfast awaits anyone lucky enough to enjoy accomodation at Ardlinnhe B&B. We would highly recommend it and make frequent visits were it not 550 mles away from our home!

We only spent one night at the Ardlinnhe but we experienced a large immaculate ensuite room. Breakfast was very good and Pam was friendly and helpful.

This B&B is a very good choice if you want to stay in Fort William.
Free park available in the court, walking distance from the town centre and from touristic boat harbour. No noise at all, despite the closeness of the main street
The B&B is in front of the sea, where there is a nice (particularly at night) walk.
Rooms and bathroom are very clean and comfortable, all in very relaxing wood.
Breakfast is typical scottish, clean and rich.
I can definitely advice it!

Recently stayed at the Ardlinnhe Guest House as we were booked to go on the Jacobite Train Journey. The reception provided by Pam was very welcoming. The room was very clean and tidy. Excellent breakfast in the morning looking out onto Loch Linnhe. Would have no problems whatsoever to recommend this to others.
