We spent three nights in The Moorings and from the really warm welcome we received to the stunning view outside the windows, it is not possible to overdo the five stars review. Chris was lovely and even offered the use of the property for an extra day as they would be away. It was a lovely gesture. The Moorings is a beautifully designed new property and everything has been very carefully thought out for maximum comfort. The shower was to die for... the mood lighting kept my husband playing for hours! Thank you, Chris. We would love to return one day.
We have just returned from home from 4 days at The Moorings.
We were incredibly lucky with the weather, blue sky’s and 20 degrees every day. The view from the property is beautiful over the loch and Chris the owner is very helpful and friendly. The property is located perfectly to go out exploring and also near all the amenities you would need.
The only negative comments we would have is the property is not ideal for a toddler. We read the reviews and saw that it mentions ‘Great for children of all ages’ but in our opinion feel this is not the case. Ok for a young baby or older child, not a toddler who is into everything!
This is an open plan property with no doors on any of the bedrooms. This obviously means it makes the best of the views but not ideal for children going to sleep when it is light until 9.30pm and there isn’t a blind covering the huge glass window. There isn’t a stair gate on the spiral staircase and this is no bath.
Having said this it did not ruin our trip but just wanted to make other people aware who might be in the same position as us.
We stayed here for 3 nights. It was very clean and Chris and Da were both very welcoming, ensuring we had everything that we needed. There were beautiful views over the Loch. It is by a main road but well designed so that this cannot be seen and rarely heard. We would definitely stay here again.
Me and my Fiancee stayed here in October last year, from walking through the door you knew this place was very clean, classy and comfortable, with a lovely open plan modern feel. Perfect for visiting places such as the Highland wildlife park, Fort William itself, Neptune's staircase etc, with a handy super market just a 5 minutes drive away.
The chalet itself is simply stunning, a very clean modern feel, while still being very cosy. It was just the 2 of us staying so we only used the double bed, but the view from the indoor balcony (second floor) looking out over that massive window was simply breathtaking. By far the best view we've had while staying at Fort william. Another thing to mention is the shower, filled with all the lighting and music gadgets, but the real highlight is the multiple jets.. heaven after a cold day out exploring!
Overall a really nice modern, cosy and welcoming chalet, with simply unbeatable views from that front window and brilliant touches such as the floor heating and sauna shower. The view from the indoor balcony bit is so breathtaking we actually got engaged at that very spot during our stay, so a very special place for us!
Thank you again to Chris and Da for an amazing stay!
Stayed here for a long weekend. Had a lovely time and could not fault the accommodation. Very clean and comfortable with marvellous views. Would be happy to return and would recommend to friends.
Myself and partner have just returned from a week in Fort William in November. This is our 3rd stay in The Moorings and once again we had a wonderful time. This is a beautiful lodge in a perfect location and in our opinion, the best place to stay in Fort William.
The Moorings is very well equipped, extremely clean and offers stunning views from all areas of the lodge. The open plan layout, modern design and superb use of lighting make this lodge look and feel very luxurious and it stands out a mile from the other accommodation in the surrounding area.
The owners Chris and Da, who live next door, could not be any more friendly and accommodating and offer great advice on places to go and things to see.
I cannot recommend The Moorings enough and as we have found, once you have stayed here, it is hard to find any other place that can compare.
Just back from a lovely relaxing week at the Moorings , the weather was fantastic for this time of year. Chris and Da could'nt have been more welcoming ,they can give you loads of information on the area if you need it. The house is spotless with very comfy beds a brilliant shower/ sauna and everything else you would need for the perfect self catering holiday. The shops and town is a 20 minute walk away , a taxi from Tesco in the main street cost £ 6.00. I would definetly recommend the mooring and will be going back next year.
