Great family apartment
Ambrose’s place was a perfect place to spend a few days site seeing in amazing Scotland. The beds were very comfortable, and it was in a great location to walk to the Fort William restaurants and shops.
Everything you need, in a perfect location, with a WOW view.
The house is fully equipped, making staying with children SO much easier. The fridge and freezer are separates and counter-height, providing loads of space. In a change from the listing, it now has 3 double-bed rooms, rather than 2 and a sofa bed, though this didn't affect us at all.
The hall is decorated with old photos of Fort William, which themselves are a delight to stop and stare at, especially once you've explored the town.
The photo from the living room window doesn't do the view justice. Try the view from the front bedroom. That's one you could happily wake up to every morning.
The location is fantastic. All of Fort William is within walking distance. Within a couple of minutes we were able to get to the beach (stony not sandy, just the way we like it), onto the Souter's Lass for a cruise on the loch, or into Wetherspoons's for dinner. It's only a few minutes further for Tesco, Morrisons and the railway station. The car got to have a few days rest.
If I'm ever back in the area for a few days, I'll definitely be checking for availability here first.
Fort William apartment
The property had a wonderfully spacious sitting room and kitchen. The sitting room had very comfortable sofas, and a great view across the lake. The kitchen was well equipped and also had a nice large dining table and chairs. The beds were all comfortable. It was only a ten minute walk to the town centre with several restaurants and take aways to choose from. The property had an old world charm and we were all sad to leave.
Clean, comfortable and very welcoming. Very comfortable armchairs, seemingly a rarity elsewhere.
Most enjoyable. Weather good. Area and attractions excellent.
A fantastic homely property in the perfect location.Highly recommended!

Home away from home
This property exceeded our expectations. Spacious but warm and cosy. Excellent location (we travelled by train and got about easily on public transport). We didn't want to leave - I'd book this place again in a heartbeat!
Glad you like staying! You will be welcome to return any time!
