Positive Reviews


Good location

Guests appreciate the central location of the Bank Street Lodge, often mentioning how the property is within a short walk of Fort William High Street and is conveniently located near a good selection of dining options.


Decent selection of facilities

Although the property is far from lavish, few people expect luxury from a hostel-style property. On the plus side, many guests seem pleased by the choice of amenities in the lodge. Highlights include the well-equipped kitchen and laundry facilities.


Budget friendly

If you're looking to spend as little as possible and really just want a bed for the night, the Bank Street Lodge could be a decent choice. Rates are found to be competitive for the area.

Negative Reviews


Cramped dorm rooms

The general feeling about the dorm rooms is that they are very cramped. Guests mention that they thought too many beds were squeezed into a small area. The private rooms seem to offer more value, especially if you are travelling in a small group.


Mixed experiences with staff

Guests report varying experiences with the staff at the Bank Street Lodge. While all members of the team are found to be reasonably friendly, one or two of them seem to engage with guests more than others. Plus, not all of the staff seem all that knowledgeable about the local area.


Quite noisy

Reviews suggest that you'll find this property is a little on the noisy side. Guests mention that some of the other people staying there were a little rowdy. Plus, they were able to hear doors banging throughout the night.
