Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. The owners of Alba Ben View couldn’t do more to make our stay enjoyable. The view from the cottage is outstanding and the facilities everything you could ask for - even down to a chair in the shower for one of our party who has mobility problems. We look forward to visiting again. Sept 2012.
  2. ABV is located in such a position that the entire west coast and islands, loch Ness and the north and the Cairngorms are within easy reach for day trips. There are numerous good restaurants locally and the cottage owners are extremely helpful in a most unobtrusive manner. Aug 2012.
  3. We really enjoyed our stay at Alba Ben View. When the weather is good the view is stunning. It was also useful having the (friendly) owners on hand next door. Dec 2011.
  4. This cottage is a real home from home with everything that you could possibly want, it is spotlessly clean. The views to Ben Nevis are amazing. It was in a central position for Ben Nevis, kayaking on the lochs and general sight seeing. We would love to return, for our children the tree swing was the attraction, for us it was the fantastic hot tub and sauna. Owners were extremely welcoming and helpful. Oct 2011.
  5. The location of this cottage was superb, fantastic views of the Ben Nevis Range. It was quiet without being too isolated. April 2011.
  6. Very friendly and efficient welcome from owners - loved the hot tub and sauna. Jan 2011.
  7. Alba Ben View was an amazing place to stay, all the information on the website was correct and the owners went out of their way to help us settle in, Eric and Jo had loads of information on the local and surrounding area which helped me and the missus decide what to do, we had a fantastic holiday and we would go back again anytime. Oct 2010.
  8. Accommodation was excellent. It was quiet and relaxing and the views were beautiful. What made the holiday even more special was the owners had installed a hot tub and sauna which we could use when we wanted. Sept 2010.
  9. The view was wonderful. It was clean and comfortable. Aug 2010.
  10. We liked the amazing views. Aug 2010.
  11. Well located with great views. Cottage was well laid out and equipped. Aug 2010.
  12. The photos in the brochure/website do not do the property justice. Dec 2009.
  13. Outstanding views from living area windows. Excellent construction ensures that the elements are kept at bay. Very cosy, perfect for hillwalkers. Feb 2008.
  14. Views from cottage magnificent, great location to be based from, will definitely consider going back and will recommend to others. March 2008.
  15. Excellent friendly welcome. Good, clean and well appointed cottage with beautiful views. Feb 2009.
  16. The views as shown on the photos on the website do not do them justice, you will be amazed by the mountain views every morning when you open the curtains! March 2009.
  17. It is quite isolated about one mile from the village, and transport/trekking is necessary. That is a plus feature because it is very quiet, attracts many birds and small mammals to the garden, has uninterrupted views across the Glen to the Ben Nevis range (people on the summit can been seen with binoculars/telescope) and the only building in view is an old cowshed (or other farm building), and no roads except the lane it’s on. May 2009.
  18. We were very pleased with the accommodation, the views were fantastic. The owners were both welcoming and very friendly and helpful. I would recommend their property to other people. May 2008.
  19. The owners of the cottage went out of their way to make the holiday a success. The kitchen was so well equipped that there was no need to eat out. The views were spectacular and we would highly recommend it. It was a very good area to stay in. Aug 2008.
  20. Couldn’t fault the friendliness and helpfulness of the owner and they seemed to have thought of pretty much everything in terms of bits and pieces holidaymakers might need. The views were amazing...even when it was tipping down! June 2008.
