I was advised to go at Ben Nevis Inn for eating. I follow this advice and I do not have any regrets. The food it's really good. The staff it's all young and very kind. And all this, only in an old barn... For mountain lovers this is a great point to start your journey to the Ben Nevis.

The Bunkhouse was what I booked for 2 days... there are 3 rooms with 4 double bunks, there are no power points in the bunks (which I thought was a bit of a let down), could also do with small shelves fitted to the inside of the bunks for your smaller things like phones or tablets. apart from the little...

Fairly easy booking and when people dropped out, the owner returned the funds. The accommodation was good, decent size and comfortable mattresses, decent showers and toilets. Kitchen was good size but it could of come with humidifier as it was too sultry

If you are expecting luxury in anyway then this isn't the place for you, but if you are wanting to stay somewhere that is literally at the bottom of Ben Nevis then this absolutely is the place to stay. Yes it is basic but it has everything you need. The beds are acceptable, the kitchen had all the basics and...

Loved this place. Location is great the staff are AMAZING. Karen is a wee Gem. Please remember it is a BUNKHOUSE not a hotel. It is shared accommodation, so don't expect anything fancy. I would highly recommend and would definitely stay there again.

If you're climbing the mighty Ben Nevis, it's the best possible location you can get. If, however, you're not climbing Ben Nevis, it's quite a long way away from the centre of Fort William. You'd have to get a taxi out if you're leaving the bunkhouse very early in the morning (taxi fare is around £7 to the town centre)....

Couldn't be better placed if you're climbing the Ben and pretty convenient for most activities around Lochaber and Fort William. Lots of parking accessed along a single track road from town. Excellent pub upstairs with a good bar and tasty menu. Fairly priced, huge portions and great staff! Compact bunkhouse downstairs with showers, toilets, drying room and large communal kitchen....

Can't really complain at £15.50 for a night. It's a bunk in a dorm with a kitchen at one end and a shower/bathroom at the other. My only gripe was the 3 drunk Geordie's that spent the entire night snoring, they kept the whole place awake. Also some people making lots of noise at 4/5am. Upstairs in the Inn was...

Well if this isn't the most conveniently positioned Inn to receive grateful weary hungry and thirsty walkers I don't know what is. Stopped here following a casual days walk up The Ben just to catch my breath and reflect on my second trip to the highest point in the land. Stop here to celebrate your success or ponder the next...

The accommodation is cheap and cheerful, what else are you looking for at £15.50 a night? The showers are clean. Bring some earplugs if anyone else is in the dorm with you. The food upstairs is also very good. Recommended if your climbing Ben Nevis.
