Recent guest reviews

We have not long come home from our second stay at the Glenspean Lodge and we were so happy we decided to return! Not only is the hotel beautifully situated with fantastic views, but the owners are so friendly and welcoming it was like coming home. Our room was lovely, with a big comfortable bed, mesmerising views, sitting area, and – a rarity for some hotels – a really good shower. My partner had been dreaming about the steak pie ever since we booked, he says, and he was not disappointed. The food is really excellent, particularly the desserts which are dangerously tasty. I think we tried almost all of them over the course of our stay! The hotel is also in a great location, close to Ben Nevis and numerous other walks, and it’s easy to get into Fort William if you want to. We will most definitely hope to stay here again!

We have stayed here many times before. We would not stay in another Hotel in Scotland. Ian and Suzanne treat this hotel like their home, The food is to die for (they have a resident chef). The cleanliness of the rooms and public areas is second to none. The hotel is well situated and it is possible to reach most parts of Scotland to explore from here. You can explore by car or just walk out of the front door. Dont hesitate to book. You will not be disappointed! and may well keep going back time and again like we do!

This hotel is so much more than one would expect from a Best Western. The manager Ian and his lovely wife have made this a labor of love. Every single detail was perfection! I stayed in a unique Volkswagen themed room that had a large queen size bed and then 2 bunk beds that would have been perfect for children. Large bathroom. The restaurant and bar have commendable selections, and Ian seems to be everywhere at once. Great selection of whiskies in the bar! This is located on the way to the Isle of Skye and deep in the heart of the glens. So beautiful!

Great place lovely staff Ian owner manager could not be more helpful we stopped going to Skye and on our return from Skye lovely evening meal with plenty of choices also the full Scottish breakfast well worth going we will use again if up that way

We stayed here at the beginning of October as part of a three day Pullman train trip, checking in on arrival was very efficient which was impressive considering there was a coach load of us! We arrived at night time and so were completely unaware of the fantastic location until the following morning, the location is stunning. The conservatory style dining area lends itself to amazing panoramic views of the mountains and hillside. The staff were all pleasant and courteous and the service throughout was very well organised and unobtrusive. We enjoyed breakfast on two mornings and dined in the restaurant on one evening, the food was of very high standards on all occasions. Our room was situated towards the back of the hotel so although we did not have a view it was comfortable and clean. I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel and would happily return if we are lucky enough to come back to this part of Scotland again!

This time it was my wife and I that stayed at the hotel. From a previous stayon a fishing trip, I wanted to bring her to Glenspean Lodge because I thought it was a beautiful place to stay. It was a convenient for Fort William, about a 20 minute drive. It was as outstanding as my previous stay. Great room, with a bath where you could soak and look out to the mountains in the Turret room. The food was nothing short of excellent. A well stocked bar with great Malt Whiskeys and Gins. Ian and Susanne are the most lovely, friendly hosts. I booked with Ian over the phone to take up their offer from the hotel web site of 3 nights for the price of 2. My wife was absolutely thrilled to stay here. We really hope we can stay again sometime. Thank you very much Ian and Susanne.

We stayed as part of a West Coast Railways train tour. This was part of the package. Ian and Suzanne could not have made us more welcome. They catered for the arrival of a coach load of visitors quickly and efficiently. Lovely room with spectacular views. Food was especially good and a wonderful selection of scotch to follow. Even had a Nessie in the bath (plastic).

This hotel is out of the ordinary for a Best Western but with a lovely country feel to it. Our room had some lovely views over the mountains and was very clean and comfortable. The hotel participates in the Green Tourism Programme which tries to encourage guests to be environmentally friendly and includes some lovely toiletries. We stayed for 2 nights and both the breakfasts and evening meals were excellent with plenty of choice and good portions. One of the reasons we were staying in the area was to travel on the Fort William to Mallaig railway, Fort William being about a 30 minute drive away and this worked out very well. There is wi-fi in the hotel but as it is in the mountains it is a little temperamental which is to be expected.

I wasn't quite sure what to expect but was pleasantly surprised as we pulled in quite late to this quaint lodge after our extended drive on the Isle of Skye. This is not your typical Best Western. We were able to get a late dinner that was excellent. The hotel is largely run by two people and they do an absolutely wonderful job. The rooms are older but well-maintained and have plenty of receptacles for device charging. The dinner and subsequent breakfast were outstanding. The Wi-Fi service was a bit sketchy but that seems to be the case in all of the UK.

beautifully restored nineteenth century hunting lodge. led lights throughout, comfortable bed, excellent breakfast, free parking, and great tourist advice from the owners. Liked it so much we stayed a second night. Toured isle of skye in one day from this hotel. Drive to the ferry was beautiful, and after touring the isle, we drove over the bridge to the mainland, in the north of the isle. A long day but worth it for the amazing scenery.
