Liked: Clean place with a nice front room to chill out. Checks in place regarding excessive noise at late night. Extremely friendly staff. Not far from town centre (about 5 mins walk), but with a good view from the room and/or front room. Also, close to Cow hill track leading to Glen Nevis for those interested in hiking. Had a nice experience all in all!

Disliked: Nothing really!
