Liked: Ossians is an easy walk from the bus station/train station, even with a large suitcase. It is right on the High Street so easy access to everything. Basic breakfast items available if required but there are plenty of eateries out in the town so you won't starve. My room was advertised as a basic/small single and it was certainly that. And it had its own bathroom. Overall it was clean and the staff were friendly and helpful.

Disliked: The reception is a couple of flights of stairs up from the street and no lift that I could find. There was a lift from the reception floor to the rooms above, but it was a bit of a maze to find it and it ended up being easier to drag the suitcase up the stairs. If you're travelling light then no worries. Carpet in the bathroom was a bit odd. Also the bathroom contained the only wardrobe and was the only place to put the suitcase. Free wifi only available in public areas so no privacy for Skype etc. but ok for emails and the like.

Disliked: We stayed here Friday night before starting the 3 peaks challenge on the Saturday. Worst mistake ever. There is no possibility of getting any sleep before 2am because of the loud bar and music blaring out. Avoid at all costs.

Liked: Very good location, I was a bit anxious at first but it's value for money, good nights sleep and just off the main high street, with great access to superb restaurants such as the Ben Nevis Inn.

Disliked: The shower in the room wasn't hot enough, not a major criticism.

Liked: The staff was really helpful and friendly, they kept our luggage for a few hours after the check out with a smile, rooms very well isolated so the noise from the street or other rooms was not a nuisance at all, clean and comfortable in a magnificent location and with very affordable prices. Would go back to it indeed.

Disliked: Nothing to complain about. Maybe the lack of breakfast, but that´s easily compensated with the amount of pubs and cafes nearby.
