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.

Tips:

Eat in the restaurant at the Smiddy House, the food is excellent and the staff are very friendly.

An absolutely lovely stopover stay at Smiddy House. Robert was most welcoming and the evening meal was delicious! The smoked salmon and scrambled egg for breakfast was heavenly, too. I think Smiddy House is possibly the cleanest hotel I have ever stayed in in my life. Very highly recommended!

Tips:

There is a lovely circular walk up to the Commando memorial along the main road side and back through the woodlands to the village (around 3 miles) that is a favoutire of ours.

Smiddy's was spotless and staff were very hospitable. Hand sanistiser bottles were strategically positioned to ensure everyone heeded the government advice. Room decor was very nice. The breakfast was exceptional and we were also advised where to go for a lunch to be made up. Robert even offered to iron my trousers, as we were not able to have an iron and ironing board in the room due to COVID_19.

Commando Memorial only a mile walk away from B&B.

The Smiddy House is a wonderful place to stay at the best of times in these current times it was a prefect joy. 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.

We have stayed here before and eaten in the Russell's restaurant many times when visiting friends in the area. Always our first choice for food and accommodation and it never disappoints. Staff and owners do an excellent job. A first class place to stay and eat, being both welcoming and fun.

Tips:

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. Spean Bridge is a well known tourist stop on the West Coast route.

Robert and Glen compliment each to an exceptional level. Robert is a fabulous front of house host and Glen is an outstanding chef. Nothing was too much trouble. 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.

Russell’s Restaurant which is in The Smiddy serves excellent food and is the best place to eat in Spean Bridge.
