Convenient for train and bus stations, this was a well placed hotel for the centre of Fort William. My room was comfortable and clean, the staff were attentive and friendly and meals were good although service at lunchtime could have been a bit faster.

Lovely hotel, with an excellent location to the town centre. Plenty of staff available, especially in the dining room. Staff were polite, friendly and helpful. We had room 401 on the 4th floor. There is a lift, albeit very small, taking approximately 4 adults. Dogs are allowed which was a great bonus to us! Room was large and clean, although...

This hotel is from the 19 th century, do not expect a modern looking place. Instead, it is perfectly located, close to several restaurants and shops. Our double room was reasonably priced, clean and very quiet. Breakfast was very good. I would stay there again.
