“What you expect a Scottish Lodge to be”
Reviewed 21 November 2010

We arrived late from our drive due to the weather but were welcomed by a very busy crew of staff who were in the throws of dinner service at the time. The lodge is what I expected of a Scottish establishment with the decor and rooms modelled some time ago but at the same time very clean and roomy. The restaurant is very cosy and has a great range of food that was plentiful and well presented. Beer or wine you have plenty to choose from as well.
The only fault I could even mention is that it is out of town slightly but only a few would call that a problem.

We arrived after dark on cold Saturday evening and although we could hear the relaxing sound of the loch, we weren't able to see it. After our delicious evening meal in the hotel restaurant we stood out on the decking outside our room and could see a wonderfully clear sky full of stars.
The room itself was very modern, clean and comfortable. We stayed in the Osprey suite (I think) the larger of the three ground floor rooms and well worth the extra few pounds for the extra space and views of the mountains from one side and the loch from the other.
Waking up on the Sunday, opening the curtains and seeing the loch in full splendour was wonderful. A few wisps of low cloud hung over the mountain opposite the loch. At this hotel you really wake up to the postcard experience of the highlands!
Close to Fort William and Ben Nevis too, so plenty to do in the area.

My husband and I had such a wonderful experience here. The Lodge is located on Loch Lochy and boasts incredible views. The grounds have their own "beach access" as well. We stayed in Room 3 which was very comfortable. Most of all, the staff is incredible! We felt like we were home with friends! Samantha and Shawna were exceptional!!! Our dining experience there was fantastic too!

My husband and I stayed at the Letterfinlay for two nights. We were travelling by train and was at first disappointed that the taxi ride was 20 minutes from Fort William, but upon arriving, our mood changed. The front desk staff were so friendly and instanly made us feel at home. They made arrangements for our taxi drivers to Fort William and we appreciated the discounted rate. Our room overlooked Loch Lochy, which was beautiful. We took a walk around the grounds and took some breathtaking photos of the mountains at dusk. The dinner was excellent....especially the stickey toffee pudding....ummm. Everyone was so friendly, including the other guests at the hotel.The breakfast in the morning was equally good. My only suggestion for the hotel is to update the bathroom in our room; the pink fixtures and carpet on the floor took away from the overall beauty of the setting. Otherwise, it was by far one of the highlights of our trip to Fort William and Scotland.

We booked a last minute 3 night break in what we hoped would be a comfortable, relaxing hotel. Letterfinlay Lodge Hotel exceeded all our expectations. We stayed in the recently completed Lochy Suite which was out of this world. The fabulous Autumn weather meant we could fully enjoy our private deck overlooking the Loch. Our comfortable rooms were ideal for relaxing after days walking the beautiful countryside. The food was excellent at every meal and the hotel staff were friendly and helpful. Samantha kept us laughing throughout our stay! We will certainly return soon.

I stayed here for 1 night with 6 friends
The ( single ) rooms were a bit snug , and the plumbing was not perfect - odd since we understand that the hotel is owned by a plumber !
The dinner was very good , and the staff are very friendly.
The deck overlooking Loch Lochy is a great facility
