My wife and I ate here while on a celebratory trip to Fort William. We were both very impressed with the food and had a lovely meal. The quality of food seemed to reflect the price and the staff were friendly and helpful. The only downside was how the kitchen (viewable from the dining room) shut down and cleaning began...

The reception rooms had a welcoming fire too. Walls a little too thin or not enough insulation! Need I say anymore!! Breakfast was good and plentiful. Loved all the...

We had dinner here on the final day of our West Highland Way walk. The food was exquisite as was the choice of wine and I look forward to visiting again soon. To start I had the salmon and crab followed by pheasant, which was cooked perfectly.

Really nice hotel and perfect for a very comfortable one night stopover on our way further north. We were happily accommodated with dog, and our room and bathroom very cosy and characterful, modern and spotless. Amazing shower! Dinner was delicious, fresh fish imaginatively cooked. Breakfast also great and set us up for the day! Staff all charming and helpful. Thank...

We didn't stay there, but had a wonderful dinner. The chef(s) are amazing... the food was delicious, and the menu and plating really really creative. Service also wonderful. We had the pheasant and the duck, then great bread pudding Coke reduction, sprinkled with a few kernels of popcorn. So so good
