The room was immaculate with a lot of attention to details. Special mention to the bathroom which has a superb shower cubicle and fantastic toiletries. The cooked breakfast was very good, and staff full of attention. The property location is also very good with a number of good restaurants within walking distance, and the pedestrian street nearby. I would definitely consider staying there again next time I am up in Fort William.

Very nice quality B&B within a short walk of Fort William, with excellent breakfast and very welcoming hosts. Plus the Cow Hill circular walk goes past the front entrance.

Great location, amazing breakfast, and a 5-star service. The owners were just lovely and accommodating of all our requests and even called restaurants and the castle to make reservations for dinner for us. Overall, a wonderful experience. I highly recommend this place.
