Had a couple of nights here the room we had we believe was one of the better rooms and had a great bathroom, space and view. It would appear the rooms are in progress of being updated. Breakfast was ok but the first day rushed due to a coach trip and a wedding at the hotel. The evening reception of... More

This must be the largest hotel for miles around but needs to pull its socks up a bit. The décor is very tired and old fashioned. Worn carpets give a bad impression. Food was variable, sometimes very good and sometimes mediocre. Service was often slow. The place needs a makeover and extra staff, especially at busy times. On the plus... More

This was our first trip to this part of Scotland. The area to get to Mallaig was stunning and well worth the long drive from Glasgow. We found the hotel to be as described on its website, the staff very welcoming in reception, at the bar and in the restaurant. The food was outstanding, not good, but outstanding and we... More

I have just spent 3 months "touring" the west coast of Scotland and have stayed in many locations. The West Highland Hotel has to be my favourite, The views from the hotel are stunning looking across to Skye and Rhum and are ever changing with the weather. The food was excellent with a varied choice and breakfast set you up... More

I stopped at this hotel overnight having travelled by train up the West Highland Line from Glasgow. A nice hotel in an elevated position offering fine views towards the Western Isles and only a five minute walk from Mallaig Station. The hotel has lots of character and the staff were very attentive and friendly. Food in the restaurant was very... More

This hotel was a great place for us to stay while touring Scotland. The breakfast was incredible, and we had great service at both breakfast and dinner. We stayed two nights and had two different rooms. The second room was beautiful with a view of the water, a big double bed, and a modern bathroom with a big overhead shower.... More

A wee but run down in the rooms and general reception area however this adds to the charm. Food was absolutely cracking and a level above anything available in the general area. Welcome from staff was fab and great to see local staff working there. A grand old hotel but the inside a wee bit run down which detracts from... More

The West Highland Hotel impresses with its modest grandeur as you enter up the front steps. It overlooks Mallaig to the north and west, sitting as it does prominently up on the hill, a great white mansion presiding over Mallaig. The views from the front bedrooms, the sun lounge and the restaurant are stunning, and you'll see sunsets you'll never... More

This older establishment is like hotels of the past, big lobby full of great old leather furnishings and nice woodwork. My room was on the top floor facing the harbour, small but adequate. Took supper in the bar, great meal quick service. As I was leaving early the next morning the lady at the bar arranged for a pack lunch... More

I had a one night stay on 26 Aug and was pleasantly surprised. The public areas were comfortable and well maintained with lots of cosy corners to relax in. We didn't have dinner but the conservatory was set for evening meals and had a fabulous view across the bay. Breakfast was excellent and cooked to order and the staff in... More
