I loved the location of this hotel. It was very close to the train station (5 minute walk) and right near a grocery store and a shopping mall. The hotel itself was older than I thought and not in as good as shape. It looks grand from the pictures but overall it was adequate.

Reviewed 21 February 2017 via mobile

We visited the Alexandra Hotel for an overnight stay 18th February as a family group of four. We booked a dinner, bed and breakfast deal through Itison. We received a warm welcome at check in and found both rooms clean, warm and comfortable (302 and 318). 302 had an especially good view of the sea. Both rooms were well equipped...

Very helpful staff, clean rooms with modern bath rooms and a central location to a competitive price. The hotel is very centrally located in Fort william, easy to get to both Ben Nevis and just a minutes walk from the railway station where one can access the wqest highland railroad.

We stayed here for one night as part of a rail tour of the highlands. Our room was adequate but very tired and dated. The bathroom was very ready for a makeover although quite clean. The bed was comfortable. Our evening meal was limited choice as we were part of a group. Starter and pudding were fine but the roast...

Stayed for 2 nights while working in the Fort William area. Had used the hotel before on a good few occasions and always been happy with service and accommodation. Did notice this time that the room was a bit tired and in need of modernisation. Bath panel was rotting around the edges, window frames worn and windows no longer locked,...

We stayed 2 nights bed & breakfast over the Easter weekend. We arrived a bit early & our room wasn't ready, but we were made very welcome at the reception. Friendly, helpful smiling girls, who kept our bags behind the reception area so we could go for a wander round the town until our room was ready. When we returned,...

We booked a 3 day break here for our first trip to Scotland and having read the reviews were aware that the hotel was a little on the old side which was fine as I think this adds character. The reception staff were very welcoming on arrival and we checked in quickly, however having booked a superior room we were...

I spent 3 days on a getaway just for the scenery and peace and quiet. The hotel is near the train station. Reception was the friendliest I have had in the UK. My room was more than adequate and a great value. Bathroom was spotless. I would definitely stay again.

Our overnight stay here was part of our planned railway holiday. When we arrived at Fort William it was just beginning to rain so we decided to go straight to the hotel even though it was a little early to check in. The receptionist was excellent and could not have been more welcoming and helpful, so much so that we...
