Our most recent reviews

This lodge is beautifully decorated and has everything and more for the perfect stay.
We could not fault anything and were very impressed by the attention to detail.
Both bedrooms were tastefully decorated and had fabulous bathrooms, you would think that each was the master suite.
The views were stunning and the area was perfect for a five day stay with loads of places to visit nearby.
I would highly recommend this lodge as opposed to a hotel because it was just lovely to chill by the wood burning fire and chill beside the loch at night.
It deserves the five star rating.

A stunning cottage, beautifully presented in a contemporary but extremely comfortable style. Amazing location overlooking the loch set back from the road. Two immaculate bedroom suites with fabulous bathrooms, a cozy lounge with log fire and a modern kitchen diner. The welcome pack of delicious local produce set the tone and the whole cottage and its immediate surroundings exuded charm. Perfect. Thank you, we loved our time at West Lodge and will return.

This really is a premium property. The facilities in the house could not have been better. From the lovely toiletries to the dressing gowns and well equipped kitchen. Everything was great.

We have recently spent a week in the beautiful West Lodge and it was just perfect.
The cottage is about a mile outside of Fort William but easily walkable along the footpath that runs all the way.
I was there with my husband, but there are actually 2 bedrooms, so the house is a nice size for either a party of 2 or 4.
All the rooms inside have been very tastefully decorated. The living room has wood panelled walls and an open fire (there is an ample supply of fire wood available if you would like to light it).
The kitchen has all mod cons,. We brought our own cafetière but we needn’t have bothered because even that was supplied.
The bedrooms and bathrooms (one ensuite) are stunning and very comfortable. Shutters on the bedroom window too, ensured a lovely dark room for sleeping in.
We were very comfortable here and Joan and John (although we did not actually meet them) made us feel very welcome and were only a phone call away should we need anything. Upon arrival, they had left us a lovely welcome pack of local produce which was just lovely.
I would love to return some day. It is a beautiful cottage. Warm and cozy, modern yet with old world charm.
Thank you.

We stayed at West Lodge for 5 days in July. The cottage far exceed all expectations, it is an extremely high standard of accommodation and has been fitted and decorated to fit its surroundings. The bathrooms are stunning with stand alone baths in each, which after climbing Ben Nevis was just what we needed. There was everything you could need in the kitchen, all utensils and cutlery/crockery pans etc. The open fire made every evening a cosy event. I would definitely return to West Lodge, glorious locations and great accommodation. Thanks

Just back from five days at this luxurious property. The house was absolutely lovely and everything is beautifully designed and to the highest specification. I loved the individual touches in keeping with the original character of the house. The bathrooms were gorgeous and sheer luxury to have a long soak in the bath. The views were lovely and the town is only minutes away. We have holidayed in Fort William numerous times but this is our first time at West Lodge but it certainly won’t be our last. I would recommend it unreservedly.
This deserves it’s five star rating.

We stayed at west lodge for 3 nights earlier this month and it was perfect. Everything you could need was provided. Can’t wait to return.

We visited with two friends who had never been to Scotland before; I booked West lodge and, having stayed at Joan’s other property The Old Byre which was equally stunning, had no reservations about West Lodge. I was right to be so confident, we were all absolutely bowled over by the quality and attention to detail everywhere in the property; Joan has thought of everything, down to bathrobes and luxury toiletries. The cottage was warm and luxurious in the most beautiful and stunning setting; we had a fabulous week with loads to do in the area and were very unhappy to be going home – I could not rate this property highly enough – it could not have been better. Definitely two weeks next time!
