My husband and I stayed here last night, and had a great stay. The bed was huge, room a little too warm, but better than being cold. Had a 3 course meal in the evening and it's was good. The sticky toffee pudding was as good as I've ever had. Well done team.

Chose this hotel for its location in the centre of Fort William. We stayed in a premier deluxe twin room which allowed us to access the premium wifi at no extra cost.

We stayed here in 2 family rooms before a trip on the Jacobite steam railway Santa train. It was warm and comfortable, with plenty of space to sit and chat by a fire downstairs. The rooms were comfortable and excellent for a family. The staff were all very friendly and professional.

Checked in at the same time as a bus tour group but the staff on the front desk were super quick and efficient. Up to our room on the third floor, room had been renovated but still had a warm cosy feeling and a gorgeous modern bathroom, love the tap wear guys. Breakfast buffet was more than sufficient with a...

First, after not sleeping at all the night before at BWPalace in Inverness where the beds were rock hard, it was a relief that there was enough softness to the beds that we could sleep -- until just after midnight when the snorer next door woke us up and we couldn't get back to sleep. It had been difficult to...
