Reviewed yesterday NEWvia mobile

We loved the Ballachulish hotel- it's well located;has great views and up to date facilities. The staff are very friendly and helpful with a great sense of humour! The view from our room was spectacular- even from the loo! Great food and reasonably priced drinks.

Great location with great views but sadly in need of renovation. Food only average.Rooms clean and towels in particular new and fluffy. Bar tiny and understaffed.Minimal drinks range.Staff fine but rather underwhelming ....like the whole experience!

Just had lunch at the Ballachullish with 20 french visitors and we absolutely loved it there. The view was amazing and the food was really outstanding. The staff was super friendly and efficient ( considering our right timing). Great place. Looking forward to coming back already!

We had a two night bed and breakfast stay. Our room was clean and comfortable with a fantastic view of Loch Linnhe and the surrounding mountains. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The restaurant menu was varied and the food was produced to a very high standard. The bar was well stocked and their local whiskey guide very helpful...

This hotel is a castle-like older building. My room was very roomy with plenty of room for clothes, etc. I had a king size bed and a fairly large bathroom. The food was fabulous and the views from my room were extraordinary, water and mountain views. Very confusing quirky layout, was hard to find the room and they had no...

This is a Highlands treasure. It is a 140 year-old hotel and frankly showing its age. But that is also part of its charm. The staff is very attentive. They were expecting us, greeted us by name and already had our shipped luggage in our room. The room was very spacious and comfortable with a coach and two large lounge...

We were travelling up the West Coast of Scotland and, although there are innumerable B&B’s, there were few Inns or Hotels available other than in places like Oban, which we could not get out of quick enough! We found this hotel after trying a couple that were fully booked on the basis that the evening was moving on and we...

This stay was delightful! The large historic rooms have been modernized but the ambiance of past centuries remains--the best of all worlds. The setting is picturesque--at the foot of Ben Nevis. Excellent food too!

Beautiful hotel with lovely sitting rooms and library. Full of character. Would recommend this hotel to people who are not fussy with rooms and would like to stay in a place with a lot of history. The building itself has been around since early 1900s if I'm not wrong- and there are a lot of lovely paintings around the hallways....
