Never really used a B&B before but this guesthouse was totally wonderful and great place to stay while on our Lands End to John O'Groats family road trip. The ground floor family room with the huge en-suite to the front of the building with views over the loch was a revelation. Ample parking, excellent breakfast - would definitley stay again.

We stayed here for two nights and found the owners to be helpful, polite and pleasant. The room was clean and comfortable and the shower was lovely and hot. Breakfast was good quality and a nice variety of choice. We would definitely recommend.

We spent a couple of nights here on a recent trip and couldn't have asked for a better place. Large room with a big bathroom, both spotless, with great views over the loch. The owners and their staff were very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay again.

Gorgeous. Everything. Greeting, service, Room, location, views, the building, breakfast, ridiculously clean, even the car park out front feels quality. Feels like £200 per night or more. Room 2 was the family room with views over the loch with a huge bathroom. Faultless! Possibly the best hotel/b&b I've ever been in.

Our room was located on the ground floor, but it was really quiet and we didn't hear any noise. The room was big and spotless witn ensuite bathroom with a...

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...
