“Fantastic Winter Break Venue”
Reviewed 3 March 2014

We were up for a few days skiing in Glencoe and this was the perfect base to come back to after a day on a cold snowy mountain - warm, welcoming bar and restaurant with great food (breakfast and dinner) with beautifully appointed large rooms (double for us and twin for kids) with fantastic en suites - views to die for and the upstairs terrace bar overlooking the river will be a wonderful place to relax in the warmer months - also nothing was too much trouble for Hugh and the team - will be returning soon.

Room Tip: En Suite rooms are fantastic and there are great views from all.

Great to hear you all had a comfortable and pleasant stay. It is as you say a good base for the area so much to do. Looking forward to seeing you and the family again .

I have had some good accommodation whilst walking the W.H.W. but I believe this was the best. I was walking solo and the room I had was a twin. It was absolutely lovely with a fantastic en suite. The room was spotlessly clean and the bed comfortable. There is an upstairs bar with wide glass windows overlooking the river, which is fished for salmon. I asked if I could have my meal provided in this room, which the hosts where pleased to do. I had a steak which was cooked to perfection and exactly as requested. Breakfast was served in the downstairs restaurant/bar, it was a good quality breakfast. If passing through Kinlochleven, don't miss it.

This had to be the best stay of our WHW experience. In August 2012, we had stopped here for brunch while cycling round Loch Leven from Glencoe Village so selecting this place for an overnight stay over the other accommodation available in Kinlochleven was a no-brainer. Also, it doesn't have a rating below very good on Tripadvisor which speaks volumes. One of the bar staff immediately came over to us on arrival to take us to our room. The room was the largest of the trip, bright, very clean, tidy and nicely decorated with a comfortable bed and plenty hot water to soothe our sore and tired muscles. Service for the evening meal and breakfast was very good. I tried the Chicken Curry mentioned by other reviewers which was a tad hot for me but thoroughly enjoyable. Prices were excellent as well. It’s also just across the road from the village supermarket if you need to stock up on supplies. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

Rooms were very comfortable and the bathrooms were fantastic (including stand-up shower!). Amazing highland views to wake up to from both north and south facing windows. Food was a great and they were very obliging in throwing together dinner for us when we arrived as the kitchen was closing.

My husband has decided that Kinlochleven is where we should retire. The area is gorgeous and the hotel is located on the local river with a bar that has the best view in town. The food was good but the rooms were amazing. They are newly updated, extremely large and super clean, comfortable, and attractive.

This was by far our best hotel on WHW. Stayed two nights met some nice people, ate great food and enjoyed kinlochleven. Rooms were exceptionally well appointed and clean.
Try the curry, chicken stuffed with haggis and great lentil soup( yes Hugh does it all)
