Yvonne and I visited this hotel located in Fort William midweek in October. The hotel is part of the Lochs and Glens Group and caters mostly for the groups coach holiday parties. We booked self drive and had a 3 night break including breakfast dinner and evening entertainment each evening for a very reasonable sum.
The hotel was initially built as Fort william's Station Hotel however a change of plans saw the railway line rerouted to a lower part of town. During the war the hotel was comandeered as a military training establishment and momentos and plaques commemorating this can still be viewed around the hotel to this day.
The hotel itself is still full of its victorian charm although it has been fully refurbished recently and our room was of a good standard. The food and service at meal times is very good and its hard to see how they do it for the money.
Evening entertainment is aimed at the mostly coach party clientele with Bingo, raffles, music and dancing and as you can imagine the clientele is mostly of the mature variety.
We did enjoy our stay and cannot fault the hotel. On the good front the value for money is exceptional, the food of a good standard and the entertainment in the evening reasonable. On the down side meal times are fixed in two sittings so little flexibility, probably more a niggle than a bad point
I would happily stay here again and give the Highlnd hotel 8 out of 10.
