As part of our 50th wedding anniversary celebrations, we decided to revisit a number of the places (and where possible the hotels) where we stayed in March 1967 on our honeymoon. My wife and I endeavored to find a number of the hotels in which we had stayed so that we could revisit. Sadly, most of them no longer existed,...

We received a warm welcome at check in and found both rooms clean, warm and comfortable (302 and 318). 302 had an especially good view of the sea. Both rooms were well equipped...

Do not settle for b&b's on the way into Fort William. Try and book this place the day before. We did not book but luckily got in. It was a very small room but more than adequate. The building is lovely, clean and the staff and food fantastic. (apart from the grumpy young lady at the front desk) The restaurant...

Stayed just for one night but got a great feel for the hotel. Very easy to find in the centre of the town across the rod from the station. Limited parking out front. Staff were excellent and very hospitable. Comfortable clean room with tea and coffee. Food in the adjacent restaurant was ok, but did not live up to expectations...

This is an older hotel and inside needs some tlc with creaky floors and interesting decor, a bit faded however the rooms are clean, staff are very friendly and the breakfast was excellent, ample free parking at the front and rear and only yards from the Main Street

Benefits- Great location Clean rooms Drawbacks- *The room is on looked by other apartments meaning blinds have to be closed at all times creating a dark and dingy vibe. *The food was terrible: the venison was cold and the roast beef was extremely dry and deserts were still frozen in the middle. Breakfast was good though. *We were awakened by...
