Our team was staying here before undertaking the caledonian challenge,we were needing good food and rest prior to the event but would have been better camping ! Absolutely shocking hotel, terrible food,service,major communication problems with foreign staff, there isn't much more I can say other than avoid at all costs !!!!

The hotel has a prominent position in the village - which is a shame because it does little to promote it. The exterior is scruffy, the bar is tired and dated and the food was bland even though it wasn't much cheaper than a quality restaurant we ate in the following evening. Having said that we found the staff quite...

booked this Hotel 5 March and they cancelled our booking 10 days before we were due to arrive. Just as well we had not left Australia as we still had access to our emails. we then had trouble finding a booking at the last minute.

We just happened to be driving along wondering where to stay and spotted the hotel. Pulled up and had a quick look about, everthing looked good. Checked into a good size room, en suite, sofa & all the usuals. went for a great walk up through the woods and back. Worked up an appetite which was easily satisfied in the...

Thoroughly enjoyed the stay here. Its very close to Ben Nevis and fort William and pretty decent hotel. The staff was very friendly and the room was very neat and clean. Would definitely recommend this hotel. The breakfast too was decent.

We arrived for the weekend with my friends and this place above our expectations. Very good location, the atmosphere fullfilled with history and a friendly staff awaited for us. The Nevis in the near, so we decided to take a trip to the top. It wasn't easy, the panoramic view from there is absolut worth that five hours.

We did not stay here but bought fish and chips to take out which were £14 for two fish and two portions of chips. The hotel is extremely dated and scruffy but seems to be the only place to get takeaway food if you are staying locally

After being quoted silly money for a stay in Fort William, I opted for a budget option at the Spean Bridge Hotel. It would be easy to match many of the earlier reviews in terms of the obvious problems at the hotel, but that wouldn’t necessarily reflect that the hotel is now under new management, and will shortly be closed...

This hotel enjoys an impressive roadside position but sadly, this is where any praise ends. Once over the threshold it becomes apparent that the hotel is dated, cold and devoid if any welcome. We went in for carry out food as we were staying at a local caravan site. Fish and chips were the most expensive I have ever encountered...

2nd time here in 2 years and sadly unchanged. The business has been on the market for the last 7 years and this is reflected in the sorry state of the infrastructure and the quality of service. Heard a rumour it has recently been bought by a chinese investor so maybe things will change soon. Our room was damp and...
