About the hotel
Celebrated as one of the most popular hotels in Fort William, the Moorings Hotel is a hidden gem, located just five minutes drive from Fort William town centre but a million miles away from every day hustle and bustle. Situated on the banks of the Caledonian Canal at the famous Neptune’s staircase locks the location is perfect for a short stroll along the canal-side or enjoying a more strenuous walk along the Great Glen Way. For those on business, pleasure, an adventure or a special occasion the Moorings Hotel is the perfect stay for all! The hotel offers the best and most spectacular views of Britain’s highest Mountain, Ben Nevis, with stunning views from the superior and executive rooms over the Caledonian Canal and Neptune Staircase to the Nevis mountain range.
The Moorings always strives to give guests that little bit extra – from the warmest of Scottish welcomes to the most memorable dining experience, using the best of local produce wherever possible, with salmon, venison, seafood and game on seasonally changing menus. Many regular guests return year after year to enjoy the delicious food prepared by our brigade of chefs. The Moorings Hotel is one of the most desirable hotels in the Scottish Highlands offers some of the best accommodation, wedding and conference facilities, but do not take our word for it come along and experience the tranquility and quality for yourselves. With the opening of the new Moorings Cafe Bistro in the summer of 2015, The Moorings Hotel is the number one place to eat in Fort William and an experience not to be missed.

The Moorings Hotel
Bedroom a bit smaller than expected, but otherwise comfortable with better quality TV than usual.
Some noise transmission from rooms above and door banging in corridor, just outside our room. No worse than many hotels. Food variable generally very good, but some disappointing breakfast bacon poorly cooked and can't do soft yolk fried egg, but excellent breakfast croissants and scones. Stay again or recommend I have indicated yes, but really this is maybe.
This hotel is in my top three of best accommodation, location,views, excellent food and friendliness from staff.
Thank you for making my visit memorable.
