The Braes Guest House
Ranked #15 of 23 Spean Bridge B&B and Inns
Reviewed 15 June 2014

This was the second of our B & B stops on our 7 night tour around the Highlands. I changed the booking to 2 nights , glad I did and would love to stay longer! Stunning views from our large double ensuite and the guest lounge. Immaculate, well appointed rooms with extra touches of info ( the resident bats, places to go), lovely biscuits. On arrival we were welcomed with tea, coffee, cake and biscuits which was lovely after our long drive. The breakfasts were tasty, I especially liked the creamy yoghurt and the scrambled egg with smoked salmon. The hosts could not do enough for you, including driving us down to The Railway restaurant and offering tools to help my husband replace awkward bulbs in his motorbike after a long day taking in Skye. A peaceful stay set back from the road, perfect after a day of touring.

Room Tip: Large comfortable double, plenty of room, heater in shower room and although not front facing a love...

The host was delightful and offered to come and pick us up after we had telephoned asking for directions, this is very refreshing when some hosts just bluntly tell you, 'see you when you get here.' Freshly brewed Coffee on arrival with Biscuits. Clean room and facilities. Good Breakfast service.
Overall very good value for money..

If you go onto their website this says it all, and its true. We stayed for 3 nights and wish it could have been longer. A very warm and friendly reception and nothing was too much trouble. Thank you for a wonderful time.

Room Tip: Bedroom 1 which looks out onto the Nevis range. Whether cloudy or sunny a stunning view.

We were walking Scotland and had to walk a bit off our path to get here but it was so worth it. The room had great beds, the breakfast was excellent and our host was fantastic. He even took us back to the trail in the morning. Definitely in the top 3 of the 14 B&B's we stayed in during our walks in England and Scotland.

We stayed here after Day 1 of the Great Glen Way, and foolishly refused the hosts' kind offer of a lift from Gairlochy to the house! So we hobbled up after the long walk to Spean Bridge and out of the village to The Braes, wet, cold and (me) a bit sorry for myself! The welcome was great, wet things whisked away to dry, tea, cake and shortbread provided in the lovely guest lounge, where we sat admiring the views across to the Nevis range. Our room was huge, with a double and single bed, and an excellent bathroom and power shower. Toiletries provided, and thoughtfully, earplugs, which were an excellent idea - not because the place is noisy, as it's quite isolated, but in our case we are both restless sleepers so a big help. Philippe kindly gave us a lift to the only place serving food in Spean Bridge in the evening. Lovely breakfast and a lift back to Gairlochy the next morning, what more could you ask? Many thanks to both Teresa and Philippe for the care and attention you put into your business.

Stayed here with my girlfriend over a weekend while hiking Ben Nevis. Teresa and Phillipe were friendly and helpful, and the room was spacious and comfortable. Breakfast was very good - with the option of smoked salmon & eggs. The guest house is in a quiet area. Well situated if visiting Fort William (only a 10 mile / 15 minute drive). Would recommend this to anyone.

I stayed 2 nights at this friendly little guest house. Teresa and Philippe were excellent attentive hosts, nothing was too much trouble.

Good cooked breakfast, large guest lounge with plenty of reading material. Comfy bedroom and a drying room for my wet motorcycle gear - all at a very reasonable price.

I look forward to staying again.
