Fort William landmark

The hotel has 93 bedrooms, which due to the age and nature of the hotel are each individual in size and shape, but as standard have en suite bathrooms, a television, a hairdryer, a direct dial telephone and tea and coffee making facilities.
Three course meal
This deal includes a three course meal at the hotel’s Linnhe Restaurant.
The restaurant serves a wide range of dishes to suit every taste. Popular options include the roast topside of beef served with a rich chasseur sauce and chicken and leek casserole in a cream sauce topped with mashed potato.
Those with a sweet tooth will delight in the dessert section of the menu, which includes a selection of treats like Bailey’s and chocolate cheesecake and raspberry cranachan.
The restaurant can accommodate dietary requirements if notified in advance.
Guests on this deal have the option of using the leisure facilities at the nearby Ben Nevis hotel, just a four minute drive away.
The leisure club boasts a 50 foot, 84-degree heated swimming pool, a jacuzzi with mountain views, a sauna, a steam room, and a state of the art gym.
Many happy guests have stayed at the The Alexandra Hotel and left positive reviews. Recent reviews on TripAdvisor, edited for length, say:
“My wife and I have been staying at this wonderfully friendly hotel since 2002. We have seen staff past and present and whenever we arrive we are always met with a warm welcome. The rooms are spotless. Nothing is too much trouble the staff are always happy to help. Our little Yorkie Toby is always the centre of attention. Thank you.”
“Bedroom large with ensuite. Awesome service. Comfortable bed. Large restaurant. Lots of comfortable places to sit. Live music on Friday night, very enjoyable. Beautiful breakfast. Buffet style but so much to choose from. Thank you Alexandra, we will be back.”
