    Superb

    The staff were very friendly and welcoming. The room had character and charm, but also had a modern en-suite bathroom. The best feature was definitely the view across to Eigg and Rhum - wonderful!

    Superb

    A warm welcome with friendly helpful staff. The location is convenient with spectacular views across the water. A most atmospheric place with a log fire, fine local ales and a fiddler playing in the lounge bar. Highly recommended!

    Wish I could have stayed longer!

    Fabulous

    We had the good Fortuna to be present when there was a jam session. The players who where present by the highland games chose this Venue for playing for fun. And it was fun. THe view from our room was stunning as we could see skye and some nearby Islands.

    The only thing that was good about the West Highland was the staff who were very polite and helpful. We had to book this hotel on short notice as we could not get a ferry to Skye.

    The room was very small and stuffy, barely enough room to walk around the bed. TV was tiny..The window was filthy and covered in bird poo! It was located up 2 flights of stairs, turn, up another stairs, down a corridor, turn down another corridor and way down at the end of yet another corridor. There were no fire safety or otherwise instructions in the room which felt like a fire hazard as the only exit was the convuluted way we had come. There was no folder with info re the hotel, no tissues, very cheap and akward shampoo in sachets. The shower ran out of water when I tried to take a shower in the morning, came back briefly and went again . The breakfast was very basic, No tea or coffee was brought to our table , we had to negotiate the dining room with cups of coffee in our hands. The only bread on offer was toast, no croissants or choice of breads. No fresh fruit. very basic cereals. We had dinner there there the previous night which average with very small portions. Never again!

    Very friendly staff. Lively bar. Great lobby. Good view of the sea. Good location to catch the ferry over to Skye the next day.

    Rooms very run down. Not a 3 star hotel. Dingy facilities. Entire hotel in desperate need of renovations. The lobby is excellent and the location is great with a wonderful view of the sea. The experience could be so much more with just a few basic renovations.

    Good

    Good location. Excellent view across the loch. Really pleasant staff

    Looking a bit tired in places. Intermittant wifi in the lounge area and no wifi in rooms. Poor tv reception in our room

  • 6.2
    Good

    The staff were excellent. Very accomodating, brought me bags of ice for my sprained ankle and a whole bottle of ketchup with my dinner!

    Just thought it was overpriced - the rooms were a little outdated and they advertised free wifi (which was a big reason why we stayed) and it didn't work.

    Very good

    Excellent reception staff who dealt with minor probs cheerfully and effectively. Charming owners who are working hard to make this a great hotel. Nice clean rooms with large walk in shower and great views of course

    A few of the restaurant staff need custmer skills and waitressing training. Food was good but not great - didn't match descriptions on dinner menu. Kippers at breakfast very overcooked and dry, full breakfast dry too as though had been sitting around a while

    There really was not much to like.

    This hotel did not offer good value for money. My husband and I had travelled from australia so had two large suitcases. Upon the receptionist seeing these she stated ' you will struggle with those` and watched as we made our way up to our room which was at the top of the hotel, negotiating poorly designed staircases. There is no elevator and we were offered no help with our bags. Our room, number 32, was disappointing, it had little space as was at the top of the building so had the feel of an attic room. The decor was old with a stained carpet and walls. The tv was at least 20 years old. The bathroom was poorly designed and had a toilet that did not flush. Breakfast in the morning was poor. We were seated by the waiting staff, but they took 25 mins to come to us to take our order for tea and a hot cooked breakfast. There were cereals and juice available but these kept running out without being efficiently repleanished by staff. The cuttlery and glassware were not clean. Altogether during our time in scotland we stayed in cheaper b&b's that were far superior in service and comfort than this hotel. We will never stay here again!

    Good

    Lovely entrance and staircase spoilt only by modern fire regulations. Friendly staff and good position. The reception and bars ok but not impressed by the rooms whatsoever.

    Small rooms, many of them attic with sloping ceilings, ancient furniture, and no shower. The absence of the shower most of all says how the accomodation just isn't maintained to the standard you expect of on-suites these days. Ok if your stuck but it wouldn't be my first choice.
