          Good hotel for an overnight stay. Parking is always a bonus and there was free Wifi. Room was comfortable and breakfast was delicious. The bar was cozy and reasonably priced. Book direct with the hotel for added discount or free wine with dinner.

          This was a very bare room with uncomfortable bed (felt like it was a mattress from a college dorm). The room didn't have shades only sheer curtains so it was difficult to sleep. There's a restaurant and bar in the hotel.More

          Great hotel on the side of Neptune's staircase. Great views of Ben Nevis. Good bar and restaurant. Definitely a 4 star. Try getting room 20 or another canal side room. Excellent starting place for walks.
