Liked: The location is excellent, you can walk to the town centre or Morrisons in 5 minutes. It was a great place to meet people and the views a brilliant. There are great walks right on the doorstep and it's a 15 minute drive to the Nevis Range. You'll find yourself wishing you had longer.

Customer review

02 August 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Cant really complain for £13.50 a night, rooms/bed sheets were clean, but kitchen was a bit grubby, wouldnt want to cook in it. Showers were terrible, warm but not a lot of water! Looks a bit rundown, but good atmosphere, pretty chilled out and very friendly staff so would stay again, still way better than camping in the rain!
