Highland Getaway
Ranked #4 of 9 Kinlochleven B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 August 2013

Day 6 of The West Highland Way.
My room was very nice, large comfy and clean. It looked freshly decorated.
Excellent power shower, just the job after 18 miles in the rain and wind.
The only down side was when I enquired about drying my wet jacket and over trousers, I was told that there were no facilities for that.
Evening meal was served in the pub a few doors up, nothing startling, good hot pub food at a reasonable price.
A tip for packed lunch the next day, The Co Op across the road does a good meal deal (Sandwich, drink, crisps and a choc bar) for £3.

Thank you for taking the time to give us a good review ,despite the fact you were not given the opportunity to use all the facilities. We do have a drying area which I am sorry was not made available to you for some unknown reason which we will look into. We also do packed lunches on request. We will address these issues with our staff

Excellent stop on WHW. The room was spacious, very clean and comfortable, with lovely views over the River Leven. We were welcomed warmly and the breakfast was excellent. The weather was fabulous when we were there and there's a great spot to swim above the bridge before you come into the town.

Rooms are large and clean. Shower and toilet cleans and larges. The view from the room is the waterfall and the river. If you open the window you can hear the water running. Good smell in the stairs. Breakfasts are good and rich. The hotel has excellent restaurant.

Room Tip: Choose the back rooms with the river view

Stayed there in July 2013 for a night on our way to Fort William. The twin room was located a few doors away from the restaurant opposite the Co-Op and was very generously sized (actually 2 rather large single rooms) and the bathroom was spotless.
The staff was very friendly. As we had to leave very early before the restaurant was open, they allowed us to simply leave our (rather heavy) luggage in our room and they moved it themselves to be picked up by the luggage transfer service. Too bad we were already gone before breakfast, but they offered us packed lunches instead. Recommended stay!

Thank you for taking the time to give us such a kind review. We are pleased you enjoyed a comfortable stay with us and regret you had to leave so early as you missed out on a hearty breakfast. Hopefully the packed lunch carried you through for the last leg of the walk. If and when you visit again you will have time to enjoy the full package.

What a surprise. A gem hidden in the highlands. Friendly staff great grub in bar and restaurant. Views looking out over the water and into the hills ( which we had to climb the next day as part if WHW). Rooms recently refurbished and spot on. This is the place to stay if visiting kinlochleven.

We were lucky to visit a couple of times whilst staying in Kinlochleven. The staff are all very friendly and the locals make you feel welcome also. We ate on Saturday evening and had a very nice homecooked meal which was served quickly by friendly bar/waiting staff. Could not be faulted.

Stayed here when doing the West Highland Way. The room was a very generous size, and was spotless, and had a fantastic view of the river and the hills around Kinlochleven. The ensuite was a full size bathroom and was also spotless. We ate in the bar/restaurant and the food was 1st class. The breakfasts where also very good.
