We stayed here only one night (thankfully) with mixed reviews. Unfortunately we had someone banging on the door across the hall from us late at night which actually sounded like our door. We could also hear people in the room next to us late at night. The location is perfect if you are on your way to the Isle of...

Excellent stay - We stayed for three nights and ate in the bar each evening (something we don't normally do). The food was first class - good ingredients well cooked and presented. All the staff were very helpful and welcoming. The bathroom was newly refurbished and was of a high standard - although the towels were a bit thin. Other...

Was checked in by a very officient young man. Nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff. Room was lovely and recently refurbished. Breakfast was great. My only one complaint is the housekeepers didn't lock my door after cleaning it

We stayed at the Cruachan hotel in Fort William ahead of our 3 peaks challenge. Despite not getting into Scotland until 4am due to us working in London, the staff were very friendly and helpful from start to finish and extended our check out to be at 12:30 instead of 11am due to circumstances. The rooms were lovely with very...

We only stayed two nights, great location and nice views from the front. Very close to town centre. Rooms were very clean as were restaurant and bar areas. Great service from all the staff we encountered and breakfast was good too. Overall I thought great value for money.

Cheaper and better value than a Premier Inn. Great location, only about 150m from main thoroughfare, facing the loch and has private parking. (probably insufficient at peak times). It is a large house which has evolved into a substantial hotel so it has an awkward layout internally. The room was ideal and basic but the bathroom was modern and high...

Had dinner here on 2 occasions sumptuous surroundings looks as if the hotel has been recently renovated 1st night in the restaurant and the other occasion in the bar/lounge if management read this could I suggest that you don't have the same menus for both venues apart from that food was excellent with reasonable prices would definitely visit again if...

Booked this hotel as close to climbing Ben Nevis day after!!! Chose as the look of the hotel was lovely, and the view was delightful... But.....If you want a double bed, you don't get to see this amazing view as you are stuck in the back!! Only single or twin bed booking!!! All staff seemed friendly, but but not much...

Very expensive for what you get, a small room. The toilet could not swing a mouse never mind a cat. Shower excellent. If you get a room in back 3 floor annex, god help you. Ever step door and toilet flush can be heard every where. I think rooms 100-107 are at hotel front, these are the ones you want....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Cruachan is designed with a traditional Scottish Highland façade and whilst the hotel has been, continues to be, sympathetically upgraded and modernised internally to provide all modern comforts, it has not lost its original character. The hotel has an enviable location overlooking Loch Linnhe and beyond the loch to the Morvern Hills. Guests can sit on the terrace outside the hotel in the summer, watching the boats on the loch and enjoying a quiet drink. ... more   less
