We were assigned a small, very basic, room on the 2nd floor. The bathroom had bathtub and no shower.The common parts of the hotel were furnished with a bit of character, while the rest of the hotel is quite impersonal. We had dinner the first night , the food was of a good quality. Wi-Fi working only on the common... More

Travelled from Edinburgh to Mallaig on the West Highland Way Train. Journey was uneventful with plent of opportunity for refreshments served from a trolley cart. Arrived approximately on time at Mallaig to discover the hotel was at the top of a steep hill and a difficult climb for those who who were not 100% mobile. There being only one taxi... More

Staff are friendly, food is good, and the dinner bed and breakfast rate is reasonable for the value and high service you receive. We booked a twin room but were given one of the family room which was clean and spacious. Bathroom was en-suite and again it was very clean. I did take the opportunity to view the solo traveller...

Whilst the West Highland is well-placed in Mallaig and provides most creature comforts a few things jarred that should be sorted out. Our 'family room' was pretty cramped but had a fine sea view although the decor is a bit tired and the door needed oiling! The landings of the hotel have been chopped up with some fairly ugly fire...

Stayed for one night on a room only basis. The lobby and bar is quite pleasant and rooms perfectly OK and clean. Staff were friendly and quite helpful. The location of the hotel is good in that it is elevated enough to look out to sea and across to Eigg, Rum and Skye as well as into Mallaig harbour. Take... More

Good location with decent views out to sea. We didn't eat there but the bar area looked friendly and fun. Car park in the back has a raised concrete platform where we put the bikes, otherwise ground a little uneven and possibly too soft for side stand. Rooms simple but functional, all in all no problem staying their again.

Our room at the top floor was small but tidy with a great view on the harbour. Dinner in the veranda at the sunset with Skye and other islands in background was well worth the price. Easy parking on the rear.

Generally Mallaig is pricey for not very much. I guess its a short holiday season so its make as much as possible as quickly as possible. This hotel has good sitting areas and a reasonable enough restaurant (there is precious little else in Mallaig) but the hotel room I had on the top floor was gloomy, pokey, tiny tv, weary... More

This gem of a hotel is great for lunches and dinners and is well worth a visit for great food and ales. We had a fabulous lunch in conservatory over looking the Isles of Skye, Rum and Eigg on a great sunny day super food and service. The staff and views are absolutely wonderful.

We had a great stay here; the staff were welcoming, the location is fantastic and the food was good. Our room had recently been redecorated to a high standard. The only downside is the soundproofing between the bedrooms seems almost non-existent, it was perfectly possible to hear every word of conversation from the bathroom next door. A characterful hotel!
