We were skiing at Nevis Range and took friends and family to dinner here . The location is superb . The building is a characterful stone built converted barn . The food was pub grub but a mite pricey for that standard . The cask ale was excellent . Service was pleasant but varied in speed from quick to very slow . Parking and access along very narrow single track road can be difficult . Take a torch at night to guide you around the waterfilled potholes between parking and inn .

We thought we were on the wrong road as it appears to be in the middle of nowhere - especially at night. However, when we opened the door we were invited into a bright, bustling and relaxed atmosphere. Food was great, service was amazing.

We attended a wedding at the Ben Nevis Inn.The staff were very good and the food was lovely, good hearty portions and well cooked.
It was a lovely setting for a small intimate wedding and a great place for walkers and outdoor enthusiasts.
Tasty food, good beer and wonderful setting.

I had forgotten this was at the bottom of the Ben Nevis walk and was so glad to see it. A great place to rest those weary feet after that 11 mile 8800 feet up and down hike. Fantastic cask ale which went down very nicely indeed. The staff were friendly but inside was a little too crowded for us after the wonderful views and peace and quiet of the mountain. We opted instead to sit outside and gaze in awe at the beauty of the best of the Scottish countryside. I hope to go back one day. A true memory!
