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

We stayed here for 1 night and it was perfect and great value, the rooms were spotlessly clean, warm and extremely comfortable. The room was equipped with kettle, tea, coffee, hot chocolate and a mini bar type fridge with a fresh carton of milk and a little box of cereal for the morning-a lovely touch! The bathroom had everything from... More

With the West Highland Hotel and the Marine Hotel shut for the winter, places to stay in Mallaig are limited but actually I'd choose to stay here again next time. The Steam Inn is right in the centre of Mallaig, so not far from the station and pier. The inn warns guests that the rooms could be noisy but my... More

We came by the ferry. The Inn in the center of town. Cosy pub, friendly staff. Very well equipped room. Clean and felt new. No noise from the pub (if there had been we would have joined the party) The food in the pub was excellent. Good value for the money. The Inn is close to the station, we left... More

Stayed in Mallaig because we couldn't find any accommodation anywhere else and ended up at the Steam Inn more out of desperation. But the best rooms we experienced in 12 days, everything new, contemporary, spotlessly clean, and very good value. No breakfast as such but some cereals tea and coffee and fresh pastries a short walk away at the local... More
