This hotel has the most fabulous location and has very friendly staff especially on the reception .They also help you to move your luggage into the room which is much appreciated by older customers!!. The rooms are nicely laid out and are pristinely clean .From all of the preceeding remarks you may wonder why I've only rated them four stars and this is because of the food The menu is very standard café style rather than fine dining and this is the first time recently that I have seen items priced which subsequently have VAT added so the bill is larger than you would have expected My other gripe about the food is that all vegetables are served al dente so much so as to need serrated knives to cut them I appreciate this is my taste and it may be that others will appreciate this but I feel they have so much good here it should be possible to achieve greatness and they don't quite do this.

Our first stop on a car trip up the west coast of Scotland. We found the moorings a lovely comfortable hotel with a friendly atmosphere. Breakfast was truly Scottish and nicely cooked. Bedroom was very clean and comfortable. Staff helpful and considerate we couldn't have asked for more. Would definitely recommend this fine hotel.

Fantastic hotel, first class location right next to neptunes staircase, Room was modern and large, great balcony overlooking the locks of Neptunes Staircase. Bathroom was very modern with gallons of hot water. Breakfast very good with nice selection on buffet bar. Dined in the bistro and the food was well presented and good value for money,

Lovely friendly hotel, takes dogs, very nice bar where we ate, as wedding was to be in restaurant next day. Right at end of Caledonian canal, great walks up it, terrific views of Ben Nevis.
Room was very comfortable, good bathroom and toiletries. Would happily stay again.
