“Fabulous accommodation”
Reviewed 23 July 2013

We stayed with Colin last year and had a lovely time so we went back again this year. Colin is very welcoming and friendly and has loads of local knowledge. The house is lovely, it's very clean and you smell the scent of lovely fresh laundry as soon as you walk in. The rooms have stylish decor and comfy beds, and the bathrooms have soft fluffy towels and a shower gel/shampoo/ conditioner dispenser in case you forget to bring something. The breakfasts are delicious and very filling with a refreshing fruit platter to begin. Each morning Colin brought me a huge pot of tea and a cafetiere of fresh coffee for my husband, as well as mugs of hot chocolate for our kids. There is access to the River Spean via the back garden and in the evenings my husband and kids would go exploring and I would sit out on the decking with a glass of wine or a coffee and read my book. The location is central for all the places we like to go to, Mallaig, Morar, Fort William, Fort Augustus and on this visit we went up to Achnacarry too, after Colin told us how to find it. We can't recommend this B&B enough, and much as we might try to plan on expanding our travels next year, I'm sure we'll end up back at Riverside Lodge!

Room Tip: If you want to soak in a bath choose the green double room, the red one has a shower.

Riverside Lodge Gardens was delightful from beginning to end. Colin was an excellent host, took an interest in his guests, made a darn good breakfast and had a lovely place!! This was the cleanest place we stayed! We were only there for one night - passing through on our way to the Isle of Skye. Colin was quick and helpful with a dinner reservation and suggestions for what to do at our next destination. We were made to feel very much at home here. We had the twin room, which we took because it was the only one available. We would have been more comfortable in a double bed. Only fault I could find was the water pressure in the shower could have been better. However - as we found at our next location, it could have been worse too!!!

We had a wonderful stay at this B&B. The house was beautiful inside and out and our room was very comfortable. Colin our host went out of his way to make the stay pleasant. He gave great tips for dinner and for our destination the next day. The breakfast was fit for a king. I would highly recommend this guesthouse.

Room Tip: We stayed in the family room with our two children, it was very comfortable and quiet.

Fantastic service from start to finish. Tea out in the garden on our arrival, with a quiet and comfortable room over looking the river. Colin (the owner) even went to the trouble of finding us a restaurant when the whole town was full to bursting with an international bike race. I cannot recommend this place enough

Colin is a delightful host, extremely friendly and helpful. The B&B is set in a beautiful garden by a marvellous river (as the name suggests). The room was clean, comfortable and peaceful, and the breakfast top-class with some nice touches. Spean Bridge is a very pleasant location. I would not hesitate to recommend this B&B and wonder when I will be able to go back there.

Collin is a great host, going out of his way to book dinners for me, describe the area, and even show me around. Breakfast was very good. Rooms were comfortable. Beautiful surrounding of the cottage, with pretty garden and right on the river.

Despite arriving somewhat damp with our large rucksacks, damp clothing and wet boots we were warmly and efficiently welcomed by Colin. Good night's sleep followed by excellent breakfast. Recommend booking evening meal in local restaurant before arrival as the good ones were fully booked.
