We stayed here three nights in July in the Tower Room, which had a nice sitting area with windows overlooking Loch Linnhe. Very pleasant for relaxing and watching the lake. Room was very comfortable and clean. Breakfast was excellent. The guest house is an easy walk to the downtown area and restaurants. We used Fort William as a base for...

B&B has a great location with only about a 3 min walk to centre shops. Room had a view overlooking the Loch so very pretty. We had the room with tower (on the right) and it was great sitting in the chairs having a coffee looking out with the best views. The owners were really helpful. We had climbed Ben...

Owners very accommodating as we arrived 3 hrs before check in time. We were in Rm 7 "Graham Suite". Room was clean, average furnishings but bathroom was very spacious & had a lovely soaker tub.

Stayed in a newly refurbished room in an extension to the main building. The room was spotlessly clean as was the bathroom. Nice view out the back of the garden. Free parking on site and the guest house is opposite the Loch and 5 min walk to the town centre. Breakfast was excellent, overall a very pleasant stay.

Decided to stay in Fort William for 1 night whilst touring with my parents and my partner, through Glencoe and the surrounding area. We arrived at this lovely Guesthouse and the first thing I noticed was how immaculate the grounds and the exterior of the building is. Upon entering the smell of clean hits you, so I knew we were...

Fantastic location overlooking the Loch near ben Nevis and Loch Ness. The room was perfect for my visit, warm, comfy and very clean with an amazing shower. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Breakfast in the morning was quick, tasty and enjoyable. I'd definitely stay here again.

My husband and I stayed at the Glentower with my daughter and her husband. The room was comfortable and had a sweet, homey decor. We had a nice view from our room. The breakfast was fantastic - full Scottish breakfast as well as other choices like porridge. Katrina and Trevor were accommodating hosts. The guest house is in a perfect...

We visited with our grown-up daughter, who had her own room in the house next door. We had a large room in the old house with a generous selection of beds in it and a magnificent bathroom. You couldn't fault the presentation (apart from a water stain on the wall in our room) and the breakfasts have varied options and...

This Guest House is just fantastic. Aside from the stunning location, breathtaking views and beautiful rooms the staff are just the best.

Seriously impressed with the lass (can't remember...
