Warm and cosy with Dogs allowed in the Bar. Excellent attention to detail by staff offering a smile and warm welcome to visitors. Superb choice of meals from the Bar menu at very reasonable prices. Highly recommended and mustn't be missed on your visit to Mallaig.

Spent 2 nights in a single room here midweek. Lovely young staff, freshly decorated en suite room with comfy bed, tea tray and a fridge. Also fresh milk and cereal provided in the room, even though the £30 rate was for room only - what a thoughtful touch! I would return here and stay over, and would heartily recommend the... More

The restaurant looked inviting but instead of a bottle of wine it was by the glass and there was no choice. Some of the sea food was not available in the dish that was chosen so alternatives were offered. After the starter we asked for a pause but the main came as soon as our starter plates were taken. The... More

Stayed for a night with some friends, 3 single rooms £30 per person(great value) ate in the restaurant, extensive menu lots of seafood, food was excellent, service first rate. All the staff were very good both in the restaurant and in the bar. Would certainly recommend The Steam Inn as a great place to stay, have dinner or a drink.

The Steam Inn advertises a room only basis, but struggling to find a b&b, I reluctantly called to book a single room @ £30. I arrived about 15.00 and the room was ready. I paid the bar staff £30 and was shown to the room, a minute, but comfortable space, with single bed, chest of drawers, fridge, tea/coffee/drinking chocolate and... More

The room was really nice and comfy with a great shower. Quiet and great value for money. I ate in the restaurant and the menu was extensive with lots of local fresh seafood. Great spot in a lovely place on the west coast of Scotland

Room we stayed in for one night is above the restaurant/bar was recently decorated and very clean. No issues with sound from below. Paid £60 for a twin room which I thought was great value for standard of room provided... No breakfast option but mini bar had pint of milk and breakfast cereal along with tea making facilities. Food/service was... More

The sign outside says seafood restaurant but when you get the menu it's mostly pub grub and pizzas the seafood linguine my partner had came with a sauce that tasted of burnt garlic There are lots of seafood restaurants in Mallaig I think we chose the wrong one

Found this hotel by chance but glad we did. Big room with a large comfy bed. We knew there was no breakfast but happily found cereal, bowls and milk left for us, thought this was a nice touch. Also plenty of tea, coffee and hot chocolate, which was also well appreciated as we always run out and don't like to... More

Location: Ideal in the centre of the town. The rooms are spotless, cleaned daily and tea / coffee and cereal freshened daily. The Saturday had music but was nothing to fuss over. It comes off by midnight. Loved the live Scottish music on Sunday. Bed was a bit too soft for me but I slept through the nights. Loved waking... More
