Excellent stay with very accommodating staff. Stayed to take part in the Loch Ness Marathon and the staff provided an early breakfast for all of the runners staying at the guest house. The location was ideal to get in and out of town and to the train station.

We only stayed in the Alexander for one night and had to leave early the next morning to catch our flight home. We wouldn't have had time to stop for breakfast but while we were out the evening before some fruit, yoghurt, croissants and jam were left in our room.....a nice touch we thought & one which will certainly lead us to stay there on our next trip to Inverness. We were welcomed very warmly on our arrival & you got the feeling that nothing would have been too much trouble. The hotel is in a beautiful location as well. Strongly recommend it.

Pros: The fantastic host
Location: Beautiful
A splendid and cosy guest in a beautiful location. The owners were very accomodating and gave excellent advice about things to do in the local area. They even collected a couple of guests from the train station whom did not have their own car (B&B is 10 miles from Fort William)!

Cons: Broken shower Attitude
Location: Excellent
The couple managing the hotel were not that confident in their delivery of service But they were helpful in looking after my case The owner was no where to be seen and this reflected in the atmosphere and experience I had expected alot from my stay due to the website but my experience fell short of my expectations... It was not worth the 100£ I paid for the room The scrambled eggs did not taste nice Overall disappointing experience
