Mallaig is so busy, but only four miles away and on the first rail stop out of Mallaig is the Morar Hotel. Wonderful views over the silver sands and a short walk to Loch Morar, friendly staff, comfortable rooms and excellent food. The steam train passes regularly on the way to and from Fort William.

I've given this restaurant five stars because of the service and the food. I must admit when I walked into the reception area of the Morar Hotel I thought I'd walked into an auction house and about turned. The first thing that meets the eye is a mish mash of dark furniture covered in a selection of odd bits of... More

Morar Hotel does enjoy a good restaurant with a world class view now it is back open to the public. Our new menu is receiving excellent reviews locally and we encourage everyone to come and sample the dishes after enjoying some quality time on the silver sands or perhaps after taking the steam train. Reception has been revamped with antique... More

My wife and I together with two friends recently visited the Morar Hotel, although the rooms with a sea view are to die for, the general appearance of the place is very tired. The meals were 4star but the service was abysmal, taking 2 hours to serve 3 courses due to lack of supervision in the restaurant. The last morning... More

You may have read about the rescue of the hotel and its refurbishment and this is ongoing but presently incomplete. Business nevertheless has been booming but we are sorry that your order took a while at our busy time. Any food items you are not happy with should be returned so we can inspect. All bread is delivered for use... More

We stopped here for dinner while staying at a nearby b&b and it was a bit like stepping back in time. The hotel looks like something out of The Shining but the staff were very attentive and the food was excellent, very fresh. The location is stunning and it was busy with groups of tours.

That is great praise indeed. We are constantly striving to maintain and raise the bar across all areas. We launch a new a la carte menu this week and have the murder mystery dinners coming up on September 13th and in October & November also. More

Had to spend a couple of nights near Mallaig and found this hotel nearby. The accommodation is basic but clean and well kept. The attention to the customers shown by the manager and his staff is excellent. Connie, in the bar is very nice and interacts excellently with customers. Bar food first night was excellent, second night not so good... More

This hotel is under new ownership and is trying hard. The staff are friendly, and the beds comfortable. Our room had a great view over the bay. The kitchen staff prepared porridge as requested. But the reception and lounge areas are tired and need a clear-out of old and cluttered chairs and rugs. The glass food container should also be... More

Thank you for your comments. The front of house is close to the restaurant and cafe and occasionally food smells permeate through as in any large country house. Many people wouldn't mind this, infact they think it reminds them of home. Reception is aired once daily but given our challenging summer here, this might have also blown away the very... More

I travelled to Morar as part of an arranged tour (40 people). The hotel is situated in the most beautiful part of Britain, the Morar Beach. The view from the restaurant is stunning which is more than I can say for room 31! Our view was the sky because all we had was a skylight. Had I been an individual... More

Thank you for your comments. The coach companies know how many rooms we have, where they are and where they want to put you and we have no control over the feverish booking in summer season when we turn away about 4 operators for each day. Had we taken out your room from their allocation, owing to a velux window... More

Booked at short notice to have a "get-away" weekend. Having read some of the reviews i was a but worried but i thought things would be good for one night. i got to the hotel about 1.30 on the "early train", but there was no trouble booking in. Comfortable room, fantastic view - the sea view well worth the extra.... More

We have been coming here on and off for many years as we holiday in the area and we really enjoyed our recent visits. The place still needs major investment , TLC and remedial work to bring it up to standard and the new owners seem to be making positive strides in the right direction. The hotel has been neglected...

Thank you for your comments which will help us improve our service even further. For me, it is heartening that we come up trumps responding to guests and it is precisely this approach which is in operation when there are no guests here as well. Our fantastic 1902 building gets the same standard of service long after the guests have... More
