Excellent location

VIP treatment

Reviews indicate that you’ll be made to feel special at this hotel The staff all seem to be geared up to do everything possible to make sure that you enjoy your stay in Fort William It appears that great service comes as standard.

Great breakfast

Most guests comment favourably about the standard of the breakfast at the Best Western Imperial Breakfast is available between 7 30 and 9 30am, so whether you want an early start or a little lie in, you’ll be well catered for.

Negative Reviews

A little dated

A fair number of guests remark that this hotel is in need of a little TLC and renovation Overall, the décor is looking tired and perhaps not as nice as what you would expect from a hotel that doesn't come in particularly cheap.

Not all rooms boast high standards

While some guests were satisfied with the quality of their room, others were less than happy The quality of the beds seem to be a particular concern - they are a little on the small side and rather old The bedding is also well used.

Inconsistent dining experiences

Although guests tend to agree that the breakfast is great, reviews of lunch and dinner are a lot more varied Some guests enjoyed their meal while others felt the standard and choice of dishes left a lot to be desired.
