The Lime Tree, Fort William
Very Good8.0
Beautiful hotel at convenient location
The hotel was very convenient, just off the end of the West Highland Way. The only thing missing was adequate heating facilities for drying our clothes after walking the Way the entire day in pouring rain - but we did not ask if they had any portable heaters. They did set up a continental breakfast for us because we had to leave very early the next morning to catch the train.

Lovely little cottage with good food
Very lovely. Great location and great food. Beds were a bit uncomfortable but overall the experience was great. Very short walk into the cue downtown.

Good rooms and food. Needs better service focus.
Nice rooms and décor, as well as very good food. However, some spurious service (times to take food orders at breakfast very inconsistent) and admin (tried to charge again for a stay that was already paid in full via booking agent - and disputed it a few times first). Proprietor doesn't like you raising service issues or double charging attempt -- tried to deflect several times.

The Lime Tree, Fort William
wonderful, nearly perfect
Lovely staff; room was in a modern extension but still furnished to a high standard and managed to create a characterful, homely feel. Good size with a great TV and comfy bed and sofa. ALso had two sitting rooms, one with a coal fire blazing - lovely. Also a high quality breakfast cooked to order. Only slight gripe with whole stay was that there was a Velux window but the blind wasn't a blackout blind - not a problem in the winter but probably would be a bit annoying in the summer. Would definitely choose to stay there if staying over in Fort William again.

Lovely wee hotel, staff very friendly, couldn’t do enough to help us. Authentic n well decorated room. Short walk to Fort William Centre where there is plenty to do. Beautiful drive up from central Scotland
