Have stayed at Glentower Lower Observatory twice before (as a single person) and have always been very happy with the facilities as well as the friendliness and helpfulness of the proprietors and their staff. This was my first visit since marrying and we were not disappointed. When visiting the Fort William area again, Glentower Lower Observatory will be the first guest house we seek to book.
everything.. staff were warm and friendly with plenty of knowledge about the area .. breakfast was the best we have had in years ..we had the family room and the bathroom was as equal to any 5 star hotel we have been in

Friendly staff, good location, comfortable
Very nice place. They were very friendly and accommodating. Great bathrooms!
Friendly staff, lovely room and a comfortable bed.
Breakfast was good, although the bacon was a bit dry.
I was located in the annex but was delighted by the quality of the accommodation. The rooms were spotless, the staff very friendly.
The evening of my arrival was in the middle of torrential rain that had caused flooding and landslides in the area, so having finally arrived, i could really have done without having to venture out looking for an evening meal.
We certainly enjoyed our stay at the Glentower Lower Observatory. Trevor received us very warmly and he was always ready to give us advice and guidance to go around in Fort William and Skye. We loved the location, modern rooms & ensuites and breakfast was delicious. We'll definitely recommend this place and we'll go back there next time.
To have to leave so soon!
Friendly staff , amazing modern facilities very clean everywhere and very good breakfast
View was great.
The Glentower experience is splendid. Trevor and Catriona can't do enough for you, the breakfast is delicious, the rooms and en-suite luxurious, the views lovely and the staff friendly.
My stay was too short!
Near to town,secure car parking.
We stayed here for 4 nights for our fourth wedding anniversary and it was spectacular, great views, great location and lovely staff
No negative comments
The location. The room & facilities. The welcome from the owner. Owners local knowledge. Advise on restaurants & making a booking for us. Breakfast
Pillows too flat. No sockets beside the mirror.
Location of the BB was great. Breakfast was first class & served by a wonderful staff who made every effort to please. I also congratulate Trevor on cooking perfect boiled eggs, with soldiers to bring back happy memories!
This may appear ungrateful, but the bed was too soft! I am used to an orthopaedic firmness so sleeping was difficult & the tendency to role into the middle occurred far too often.I apologise for the gripe, but thought it's better to be honest.
Could not find fault with anything very good location easy walking to town.Superb kids liked it as well.
a splendid place to stay
Friendly staff Good breakfasts and a wonderful view from the rooms. A definite quality property.
Very friendly and clean, comfy bed, walking distance to town centre to eat at night, can highly recommend the Tavern Inn for eating out,
Nothing not to like
Size of room and decoration. Modern and comfortable.
Breakfast could have done with more choice for cold buffet e.g. croissants and pastries.
it's location on the loch. it is close to the railway station and easily walkable to both the station and the town centre. Also, there is an excellent restaurant nearby - but a bit pricey!
Nothing really. The town centre is a bit run down with lots of empty shops. Nothing to do with the hotel however.
