Reviewed 29 September 2013 via mobile

My wife and I returned here 11years after she walked the West Highland Way and after tramping over 20 miles in the rain she had been relieved to arrive at this oasis. In the middle of nowhere, but close to ski hills, a loch where there is sailing and some of the best hiking anywhere, this inn is quaint (ie, old and not updated). The room we had overlooked a towering mound (small mountain) with a beautiful early morning view as the sun lit up the fog-capped summit in a blaze of colour. The room was small, but everything worked. The bed was a double, so I did not sleep well. At our age, we require a minimum queen or twin beds. The latter are available, so if we ever go back, we will request them. Two storied building with no elevator, so be prepared to carry your luggage, especially if they are busy. All the staff are friendly. Breakfast is extra and our dinner was very tastey (pub style food) and not too expensive. The steak and ale pie was terrific.

These guys have the fortune to be in one of the most scenic locations on earth and the only hotel around for miles. Yet, they don’t seem to take it for granted. I turned up early with many other cold and bedraggled walkers on one of the worst weather days, bringing the first snows of winter. Reception was sympathetic and sent everyone to the drying room and to the fireplaces to warm up while they rushed as best they could to get the rooms ready.

It’s not swish accommodation but it’s clean, dry, comfortable and the service was outstanding. Bar staff were friendly and prompt. There was a great atmosphere. Housekeeping staff even let me use the washer/dryer in the morning just before they started room cleanup. You're meant to do it in the evening but demand was high and they took pity on me.

Wi fi doesn’t work much beyond the hotspot but in the scheme of things, seriously, just go out and enjoy the spectacular views.

A friend and I stayed overnight during our cycle of the West Highland Way and enjoyed superb and reasonably priced evening meals. Whilst the accommodation left a little to be desired, as I had to share a toilet/bathroom with two others and the room was rather small, the breakfast was, at £7.50, excellent value. Large portions served promptly by friendly staff; couldn't have asked for any more really.

An old inn, that's a bit tired, and not the most glamourous

That said we enjoyed our stay whilst doing the WHW and would recommend this place as a good stop off

The wifi is very weak - managed five minutes max

Baths in rooms (a god send after a 19 mile walk)

Evening meal was very good, breakfast friendly but average quality

Ideal for walkers and climbers

Even though this is the only place to stay in miles, it is a cozy stay. Everyone walking The West Highland Way passes this place and it makes it a lively and friendly place in the evening. Food is alright and the rooms are small but clean. Unfortunately we didn't have an own bathroom so in the evening and in the morning it was a bit crowded.

Just returned from our second stay at the Kings House Hotel, had a great time.
We received a very warm welcome, the food is good and not expensive, especially appreciate breakfast being served on hot plates. The location is stunning and staff are helpful and friendly.

Room Tip: lovely views from rooms 9, 11 and 14.
