Beautiful hotel with the most amazing breathtaking views. Great staff, very traditional and spotless. Best hotel in mallaig by a mile. Love this place. The viewa are worth it alone. Lovely breakfast and great value for money. If you want a good view. Ask for a west facing room high up

We left the West Highland Hotel wishing we had planned to stay an extra night before catching a ferry to the Isle of Skye. Welcoming lobby with a fireplace and friendly staff, comfortable room with sea view, and a delicious dinner and breakfast in the hotel dining room. Highly recommended for a true taste of Scotland.

Stayed here for a couple of nights. From here we caught the ferry to Skye and Knoydart. Both of which we would highly recommend. The hotel has a lot of charm, amazing views and lovely attentive staff. The building is a bit tired and our bed was a bit ancient but the room size and restful views from the window... More

And before that we had the noise from the kitchens below our bedroom.staff had tried hard but the layout of the building cannot be changed!! Breakfast in the dining room was a pleasant experience but the general feeling was of a mediocre... More

When we booked the hotel the main hotel was full and we were offered the "Annexe" which turned out to be no more than a wooden shed (ex staff quarters?) to the rear of the hotel. The room was dull, damp and smelly with damp mould growing on the carpet and furniture. Thankfully the public rooms in the hotel were... More

We stayed 2 nights for dinner, bed and breakfast. The hotel is in a fabulous location and there are parts of the hotel that need some TLC. The food was very good indeed, but the dinner menu was far too complicated. There were four of us in our party and of the 8 cooked breakfasts we had 6 were serverd... More

Just spent a lovely weekend being looked after by the lovely staff at the West Highland Hotel. The food was great and the bar had a warm friendly and relaxed atmosphere. The views from the conservatory over the water to Rùm, Eigg and Skye are spectacular. We watched the sun go down while enjoying a drink or 6. Cant wait... More
