15th February 2024:

Our trip to Spean Bridge is to see the Commando Memorial. I’ve chosen the Smiddy Bridge because is close to the station and 20 minutes walk to Commando. Emma was very helpful towards us and pick up us to the station because we arrived at 10pm at night. I feel safe and not worried.We stay in the cottage and I’m very surprise the cottage is very clean ,warm and spacious,bed is very comfortable. I’ve slept well and the bathroom with shower is very good. I recommend the Smiddy House 💯 %. Yolanda from Leeds

Tips:

If you travel by train and arriving late at night don’t worry just let know Emma and Craig and they pick you up.

Stayed for one night with my mother at Smiddy House. The service by Emma & Craig (And not forgetting the gorgeous Annie) was impeccable. They looked after us very well. The room was perfect - very clean and comfortable bed which is always a bonus after a long drive. The breakfast was excellent. We wish Emma & Craig lots of success with their new adventure, they deserve it as they are such lovely people. Thank you.

Thank you for your warm welcome, and our accommodation was superb despite only being there for 12 hours ! It was appreciated that you were able to provide us with breakfast as we had an extremely early start.

Tips:

It would be helpful that future travellers were made aware that restaurants , cafés, are very few in Spean Bridge. Fortunately I did know, but to find out from your final instructions about the accommodation 24 hours before is not great.

I had a great stay. The nicest B&B I have ever been. Beautifully decorated rooms. Marvelous hosts (Annie&Craig). Very tasty cooked English breakfast. Nice little bar to relax before going to dinner (I recommend the Old Station restaurant, quite busy, but really great cheescakes. Spean Bridge is s bit out of the way (if you are hiking the Great Glen Way), however, I can recommend to everyone to visit! If I come back to the region, I will certainly choose Smiddys again.

We stayed in a petit double. The room was small (American double bed) but the mattress was very comfortable. Emma and Craig were wonderful hosts and there was a lot of room downstairs to sit and read or visit.

Tips:

We had dinner at the Station Restaurant (definitely need a reservation) one night - basic food but walking distance, and the Whispering Pine Lodge (Indian and continental) the other night. Both were good. Good hiking at Ben Nevis and Glencoe.

We loved the house, the room, everything lovingly decorated, with a lot of attention to detail. The whole facility is spotlessly clean. The hosts were so nice and did for us a laundry service that is normally not part of their offering. The breakfast was amazing and the cherry on the cake is Annie, their lovely dog who thankfully indulged our craving of cuddles as we were missing our own dog.

Our hosts were very warm, friendly and welcoming. They were responsive to all our questions. The room, as well as the whole building, has recently been renovated, and is very well appointed and absolutely clean. Spacious bathroom. We liked the tea tray next to the bed. Nice breakfast room and the ample choice for breakfast a la carte was splendid. They even got haggis on the menue! We would have liked to stay longer. Highly recommended.

Tips:

The location, a short drive from Fort William, is ideal especially for Ben Nevis-centered activities. Private Parking space is included.

If we could give more than 5 for each of the above then we would. Emma and Craig were the most wonderful hosts, Smiddy House is amazing. We hadn’t stayed in a B&B for decades and this experience was fabulous. We booked it as a stop off on our way to Skye. The room we had was absolutely beautiful, breakfast was delicious and the little bar area is great, there’s outdoor seating too, weather permitting. This is a family run B&B, the family are all there, including little Annie, the most loving little dog you will ever meet. ❤️

Tips:

We stayed here as a stopover on our way to Skye. Easy access to the highlands, we went to Arisaig And Glenfinnan - where you can see the amazing Jacobite monument and the Glenfinnan Viaduct, made even more famous by the Harry Potter films, if timed right you can watch the Jacobite steam train passing over it.

Well stocked bar area and Emma & Craig are excellent hosts and all the family get involved - including Annie….😀 Well prepared and full breakfast of individual choices are served. The local bacon is the nicest we’ve tasted and Craig managed to crisp the bacon to perfection. 👏 Would highly recommend to other travellers

I popped in to book a room on the off chance and had an amazing warm welcome immediately. Emma showed me to a beautiful, spotlessly clean petite double bedroom with a much appreciated shower room en suite. Had a great evening chatting with her and her husband Craig and their friend who was staying then a great breakfast the next morning. Stayed another night in the cottage which was stunning, again spotlessly clean with beautiful decor and such incredible vfm! Another fantastic breakfast cooked exactly to order with local produce.coffee facilities in rooms are not your cheap options. Can't speak highly enough about this place or the wonderful owners and family who made my work trip feel like a home from home. No hesitation in recommending...book as soon as you can! From a pop in off road I left knowing I'd be back in a heartbeat!

Walked the High Bridge route to the monument...watch out for the sheep!

Top quality rooms. Very clean and a nice welcome thank you. Good parking too!

Tips:

The old station nearby was very good and theres also a Spar grocery shop nearby for any sundries you may have forgotten. This is a great hub from which you can travel or tour in any direction.

Craig and Emma were so kind and helpful and the property was lovely. Perfect location for our purposes. Our breakfast was delicious and service was excellent all around. I know they just took over but feel Smiddy House is in excellent hands.

Tips:

The old train station at Spean Bridge is a must for Harry Potter fans and a great little place for dinner or a drink in the bar. There’s a nice nature trail behind the station as well if you could do with a walk. You’ll also find a little convenience/general store right on the route from Smiddy House in case you need any essentials.

The venison was so good I had to have it two nights in a row! The restaurant has a nice, relaxed atmosphere - we really enjoyed chatting to other residents and sharing stories about what we had all done during the day.

Lovely accommodation, maintained to a high standard, and with all the in-room facilities one would want and need. But the major difference between other competitors and The Smiddy is the quality of service provision and the excellence of the cookery. Staff are considerate and friendly, and are good sources of local knowledge, and the food was amazing. Using as much local produce as possible every meal was prepared to a consistently high standard, with meticulous attention to detail. Robert and Glenn have obviously worked really hard to develop and maintain this excellent establishment. The real litmus test of any Highland 'rural' restaurant is the number of local people who use it. Whilst we were there we spoke with numerous locals all enjoying the abundant local produce that is available in Lochaber. Bottom line, lovely owners, great experience!

Tips:

Lochaber is literally dripping with history. A simple walk along the River Spean gorge, straight out the front door, will take you through over hundred years of industrial/social history thats 'visible' in the old railway infrastructure along the river, but which simply overlays thousands of years of human history in the area.

An enchanted interlude at Glen and Robert's! We only stayed one evening and one night but everything was perfect. The dinner prepared by Glen was delicious, fresh and local products very well cooked: lamb with herbs, monkeyfish, ... The breakfast was exceptional with an incredible Isle of Skye salmon! Robert welcomed and served us with great humour and we had a wonderful evening thanks to him. The room and suite were very comfortable, the bedding extremely nice, lots of products in the bathroom. In short, a welcoming, gourmet and very thoughtful stay! Go there with your eyes closed!

WOW, that’s how we were made to feel from the moment we entered the Smiddy House to the moment we left. Absolutely spotless clean from top to toe, the room was immaculate, well dressed, and bed was so comfortable. As busy professionals, we just wanted somewhere to take time out, wind down, chill out for a few days and eat good food all of the above met and exceeded by the team at Smiddy House. Robert looked after us from the minute we arrived to the moment we left, always on hand to give advice about the local attractions to the wine in the evening. Oh, and the food at Russel’s restaurant was spectacular, local fresh produce, excellent quality and very tasty. This is, without doubt, a hidden gem in the highlands and comes highly recommended; I would give this place a 5-star rating all day long.

Lovely place to stay, Robert was a great host and greeted us upon arrival with coffee and cake. The room was beautiful, immaculate/ very clean and bathroom well stocked with toiletries, towels, face cloths, etc. The beds were super comfy, with plenty of extra pillows. Very quiet location so we had a wonderful night's sleep. Dinner was amazing, lots of options on the menu and all cooked to perfection. The dining room was clean, tables well presented with attention to detail. The team/ service was excellent, very attentive but not intrusive so we really enjoyed our meal. Breakfast was delicious, great menu/ selections and a "bottomless" pot of coffee was very welcome. Convenient parking at the back of the house. Overall, 5 star experience - very highly recommended and I would stay there again

Tips:

Dinner in Smiddy House is excellent, don't bother looking to eat anywhere else! There are lovely walks nearby and the woolen mills is very near, just over the bridge near the Spar. The staff there are lovely too, nice shop with typical Scottish fare including local whiskey and gin too.

Being able to sit and have pre-dinner drinks was a nice touch and dinner itself was beyond delicious.

Excellent. We stayed in the Bryson Suite. Plenty of room, plenty of towels, soaps, etc. Spiral metal staircase in the centre of the room leading to mezzanine with four single beds. Double bed room downstairs. Plenty of drawers and wardrobes. Tons of lighting. You can spend up to 10 mins switching off all the lights and standard lamps which is quite amusing. Robert who is you host is great. Yes it's a 2 star Rossette restuarant but this guy is easy to play with, plenty of banter.

Tips:

As part of the stay you are obliged to have a two course minimum meal in the restuarant for each nights stay. It is very high quality as you would expect from a 2 star Rossette. 10-15 min drive from Fort William 10-15 min drive from Ben Nevis range 30 mins from Loch Ness which you drive along from the airport. 70 miles from Inverness Airport

Cleanliness, food and comfort of the bed were all excellent. The room wasn’t big but it was adequate. If I had to look for a fault it was feeling under pressure to spend more money. We were expected to eat at the hotel for at least one night of the stay, we were expected to order at least two courses and were expected to tip for service even though it was the boss who was serving us. It was an enjoyable stay and it was faultless apart from feeling a little under pressure to spend.

It states on our website, as a Restaurant with rooms we ask our guests to eat with us. Our menu states a minimum of 2 courses, allowing the guest to make an informed choice before booking. With regards to gratuities it also states on the menu that gratuities are at your discretion. Many guest ask whether gratuities are included. Gratuities are shared amongst kitchen and front of house staff. There is no expectation for any our guests to tip.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Smiddy House. Robert was a wonderful host, thoughtful and friendly and made us feel very welcome and at home. The accommodation was comfortable, spotlessly clean and beautifully presented. We had our two evening meals at Russells, the restaurant that is part of Smiddy House, and the food was fantastic, as were the very generous breakfasts. We would very happily recommend anyone thinking about booking a stay at Smiddy House, to do so!

Tips:

The road from Spean Bridge to Mallaig made a beautiful day's drive with magnificent views of Ben Nevis. We made a stop at the spectacular Glenfinnan Viaduct and saw the dramatic and romantic steam train as it passed over. Another great stop was the beautiful white-sanded Morar Bay. Mallaig was a compact little harbour town, perfect for a meal or an ice cream!

Couldn’t fault anything even if we had wanted to. Standards were on a par or even higher than allegedly grander accommodation. Stayed in Bryson Suite which if you are booked in for a few days gives a very comfortable respite from the hustle and bustle of touring. Food was superb. One of our party is a bit of a fussy eater to say the least. Chef (Glen) seemed unfazed by his requests for little tweaks to some dishes. Robert on front of house was a delight. We left thinking we had been lifelong friends.

Tips:

Ask Robert for ANY information you want. His suggestions to us of things to do and places to go were invaluable. Trip to Mallaig on normal train half the price of Hogwarts Express. Same scenery. Sail on Loch Ness from Fort Augustus very enjoyable. Several options available we chose shortest. I think a longer cruise would have been better.

Do take the gondola trip at the Nevis range- amazing views. The woodland walk just up the road is stunning. Drive out to Arisaig and take the little road along the Rhu peninsula. Go to the end of the road and have a picnic on the rocks- brilliant on a fine day.

The food was delicious and well presented and the service was great from Robert and Claire and thanks to Glen in the kitchen. Would have no hesitation in booking again, in fact, cannot wait to do so.

Had a great stay at this beautiful small hotel. Robert & Glen are excellent hosts. Very friendly. Rooms very clean and decorated to high standard with lovely little touches throughout. Food was outstanding. Best breakfast menu. Glen is a terrific chef and our dinners were superb. Robert, who is front of house, is the perfect host. Always willing to help with local info and tips of places to visit. Cannot fault a thing with the hotel and will definitely return

Highly recommend, superb. Robert and Glen are the most wonderful hosts. Robert is front of house and has the most sparkling personality. He is super friendly, funny and very attentive. He is knowledgeable about the local area and really goes the extra mile to ensure his guest are well looked after and enjoy their stay. Glen is the chef and the food is to die for, the menu is extensive, the produce is locally sourced and beautifully presented. The breakfast is delicious and substantial. We enjoyed cocktails & locally sourced gin in the garden room before dinner They met us and dropped us off at the station, they took extra special care to make sure my 85 year old mum was well looked after. Robert helped us to organise a walk that included my mum by arranging to drive her to a location where she could meet up with us to enjoy the final leg of the walk. Everything is spotless and immaculate. The decor is stylish and tasteful with quirky little touches. The toiletries were luxurious and plentiful. We had a couple of rooms in the hotel and the separate suite that turned out to be an adorable cottage behind the hotel, which was spacious, well equipped and just perfect with its own outdoor space. The garden to the hotel is floral and colourful and inviting. Everything is perfect.

Tips:

Our hosts recommended a walk close by the hotel which was stunning. We hired a local driver to take us in a tour for the day up to Mallaig, the amazing silver sand beaches of Morar, the Caledonian Canal, the Genfinnan Viaduct to see the famous Harry Potter steam train. Our driver was extremely knowledgeable about the local area & very accommodating.

Smiddy House is a great place to stay. The rooms are well equipped and very comfortable and the food is first class. We have stayed twice now and will definitely be back. What makes Smiddy House stand out is Robert and Glen's welcome and care. The staff are all friendly and they give a truly excellent standard of service to guests.

Tips:

Russells Restaurant in Smiddy House serves excellent food, with lots of locally produced meats and fish on offer. If you are keen on hill-walking this is a perfect location, with stunning hills and scenery on the doorstep.

Spent a wonderful three nights here at Smiddy House. The location is ideal for exploring the Highlands and the food at the hotel is incredible. The attention to detail throughout the entire place is superb, and I don’t think I’ve ever stayed in a place where the hosts and staff were so welcoming and friendly. Can’t wait to visit again.

The Smiddy House is in a lovely location in Spean Bridge. After a long drive from Newcastle we were made to feel very welcome from the minute we checked in. Our room was immaculate and beautifully decorated with real attention to detail. My husband said he'd be happy to have an operation in it it was so clean! The food was absolutely delicious, fresh scallops to start, Venison for my husband and Hake for me as mains. A good selection of wine and beer too. Breakfast was excellent, plentiful with a good choice. Definitely the best food we had on our trip and we ate some exceptional food whilst away, we will definitely return. Every Covid precaution necessary had been taken and we felt very safe. I can't recommend it highly enough.

The trouble Robert, Glen and their whole team go to to make you feel safe and comfortable is excellent. The rooms are of a really high quality as is very thing in them, from towels to teapots. The food both dinner and breakfast truly 5 star.

Tips:

Why eat anywhere else but at Russell’s. There is plenty to do take a local bus up the Glen to Inverness if you don’t fancy driving, or the train to Mallaig. On a good day try the gondola ride up Aonach Mor. Neptune staircase is worth a visit, as is the moving Commando memorial.

Eat with your hosts, Russell's offers excellent food in a friendly environment. About a mile from the Commando Memorial, a few miles from Neptune's Staircase on the Caledonian Canal, and of course Ben Nevis and all its activities is just down the road at Fort William while Nessie awaits you in Loch Ness.

We booked 2 nights at The Smiddy and our friends could only book 1 night as they had booked another guest house for the following night. Robert told them to leave their luggage in the room and he would personally take it over to the other guest house for them. Our friends were really very appreciative of his kind offer as this was way above normal service.
