We stayed here on saturday 04th February 2012.My wife and I stayed at this B & B thanks to a referral from a police Offier in Fort William. When we arrived, on the outside, the building looked as you would expect, clean , managed and inviting ( to say that you would venture over the threshold of the door). What we encountered when we entered was far from normal and was an experience that we felt compelled to come back home and make people aware of this hidden gem in the highlands of scotland. Robert and Glen are amazing hosts and the rest of the staff were friendly, helpful and nothing was too much trouble. We booked into our room and we were then invited back downstairs for a welcoming cup of tea and small glass of cherry with a highland shortbread. This was a lovely personal touch. We stayed in room 4, which was warm, cosy and well decorated and well furnished. The en suite was clean, warm, well decorated and furnished. There was plenty of clean towels, the room smelt fresh and clean.
We booked a three course meal and the attention to detail was what you would expect from an Egon Ronay Restaurant. The food was well prepared, timely, tasty, presented in professional manner. This was extended throughout the night and the wine list and cocktail list complimented the menu perfectly. The layout of the dining area, maximised the potential of the room whilst not losing the intimacy and personal touch. Where other establishments would have crammed more seats and tables in. there was nothing amaturish regarding the hotel, food, people or service. This is the best B and B we have stayed in and although it is a 400 mile drive from where we live, we WILL make the drive up there again to stay with Robert and Glen. Thank you for an amazing experience and recommend this location as a MUST VIST and a MUST EXPERIENCE.
