Liked: The staff were really friendly and helpful - a great place to stay if you're a lone traveller. I stayed for 3 nights (2 of these alone), and never felt like I was on my own, as there was always a guest or staff member to speak to. Great atmosphere and beautiful location, close to the town centre and Ben Nevis. And the free tea, coffee and hot chocolate is a bonus!

Disliked: Not a dislike, but a wee bit of advice - if you want a peaceful, quiet night's sleep and a long lie, take earplugs.
