“Unfriendly landlady :(”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2013

B&B with clean room, but unfortunately landlady not helpful or welcoming. We were a group of quiet, tidy friends getting ready for a sporting event, and needed a place to stay close to Spean bridge. Due to a 6 o'clock start no breakfast was possible, although this was supposed to be included. Landlady even refused to set teacups out, and suggested we bring our own. She did leave some yoghurt for us, but then complained that we didn't clear our table afterwards. She didn't seem to like having people staying in her house - I would not consider it again.

Room Tip: Go elsewhere, no choice of rooms offered.

Stayed here as the original place we had booked was unable due to personal circumstances to fulfil our booking. We arrived to find a mistake with the booking. We had booked 3 rooms for 7 people originally and when this booking was transferred to this guest house I needed to let the hosts know we'd had a cancellation and only 6 people would be arriving. Arrive at the guest house to find she's only allocated us two rooms so two of us had to share a double bed. Not ideal for work colleagues but as we were taking part in a 54 mile charity walk on The West Highland Way the next morning we didn't have any choice but to accept the two rooms, which did not have keys and were not lockable from the outside. On arrival Gill asked who was paying and when we said we'd like to pay separately she looked at us in disgust and we finally agreed that we would go to a cashpoint to get her the cash out. The event required 4 of us to have an early breakfast which Gill said would be put out from 4.00 a.m. We arrived in the breakfast room to find three different cereals out and some orange juice. No tea or coffee, we had to bring the kettle and mugs from the room and make it at our table. Breakfast was at 8.00 a.m. and as we needed to leave before then there was no way she was putting herself out and making us an early breakfast although we had paid for a cooked breakfast. The rooms were dated but clean. There's no chance of the customer being right with this host. Rules are rules and if she's displeased with you she lets you know! You cannot check in before 4 p.m. and it's a 9.00 a.m. check out. Don't know why she runs a B&B as she's not at all friendly.

The owner must have been a military worker I feel so strict & impolite . I suggest she goes through hospitality training to deal with clients or We arrived there travelling from London … tried & exhausted in the evening. Met with Gill McDougall at the reception & there she goes … ur late, this is my house, no food blah blah blah . Breakfast will not be served if ur late must be there either at 8:00 or 8:30 . no delays blah blah . Unable to take on the horrible torture she had endured on us & my young daughter of 4 yrs we had to move out of the room that was booked & instead stay at a finer hotel at Fort William

My sincere suggestion anyone looking to book Coire Glas Guest House please think twice. There are better places in Fort William than staying with an inhospitable barking dog

Room Tip: Please avoid

Great hospitality, arranged for a late arrival due to driving up late from down South. Very nice clean rooms, with clean and tidy bathroom. Great breakfast, especially the black pudding and great value for our stay.

Everything in the guest house was lovely, including the well behaved cat! The shower was new and spotlessly clean, equipped with nice toiletries. We had a bit of trouble with the heat because it kept turning itself off, but it was still comfortably warm with the fluffy duvet. By the way, the manager was very responsive to all our needs. Nice place for a quiet night's sleep!

We stayed at Coire Glas Guest House for only one night, checking in after dinner, and leaving right after breakfast, so we were not there that long. The room was nice, if a bit small, but the bathroom was top notch. Bed was good and comfy. Breakfast was good and hearty, and made to order.
My husband left his jacket in the armoire, which we realized after we had moved on to our next destination. The following day, he realized his passport was in that jacket. I had already called Gill to ask her to mail it to us back in the US. But when I called back to tell her we had to come back that day to fetch it and why, she tried to figure out a way to save us the trip (2.5 hour drive). As there was no time for any other options, we made the drive. Gill was there to meet us, and we laughed over the whole experience. It gave us a chance to drive through the stunning scenery again. Would recommend staying with Gill and Ian.

I booked the Coire Glas for a group of six walkers and was really impressed by the quality of service. When setting off from our walk in Fort William I rang ahead and our hosts asked where we would like to eat that evening and then booked a table for us at a convenient time.
When we arrived soaking wet they offered to take our wet outer garments and boots straight to the drying room and having got changed took the rest of our gear and washed and dried them. All ready on our return from the pub that evening. If only I could get this level of service at home!
