Stayed here for one night en route to the Small Isles. Had 2 dogs with us so they gave us a lodge room out the back. Basic but comfortable and perfect for guests with animals. Very helpful and friendly staff- we needed some frozen food kept frozen so they let us put it in their freezer. Will definitely use again.

Stayed here for one night last week with my Dad, each in our own single room. Both had interesting views over the station, harbour and onto the isles. The size of the room was perfectly acceptable, bed, wardrobe, dressing table and all. Bathroom bigger than some flats I've lived in and the shower was powerful and hot. Competitive price as... More

My wife and I had a great stay in the West Highland Hotel, Malliag. Unfortunately there was agaleforce wind and heavy rain during our stay, so we could not enjoy the amazing views to Eigg and other islands. Charming building, very helpful and friendly staff. Dinner was good, but expensive. Overall, a super place to spend one or more nights

Stayed for one night. Good: lovely building with a nice lounge to relax in, polite and helpful reception staff, nice breakfast. Not so good: no lift and carrying a heavy case up two floors was a challenge, the walls were very thin and I could hear everything from the next room.

Hotel in a great location & the staff were extremely helpful, we had room 9 and the views were fantastic. The dining room lacked atmosphere and the food was typical hotel food, but here are plenty of places to eat & drink nearby so overall we had a very pleasant stay

The location gives some magnificent views out to Skye and I found the hotel to be clean and comfortable. There was an issue with my booking caused by a mix up but it was solved amicably. Staff were friendly and helpful and I found the prices to be about average. Bar was pleasant. Would go again

This was a charming and quaint hotel after spending a long day on the Isle of Skye. It's really close to the ferry terminal. Just up the little hill to the right. The dining room is lovely and has good food. They have a nice pub it if you want to just have a cocktail. We had a harbour view... More

Stayed for one night as we were catching a ferry to Skye the following morning. Basic, but clean & old-fashioned hotel, with everything required for an overnight stay. Booked into a loch view family room which wasn't cheap at £120 for the night (excluding breakfast) and as the booking had been made via Expedia, there was an extra charge of... More

We missed our ferry to Skye, so we had to find somewhere to stay. Thankfully the West Highland hotel had rooms. However the room was £120 for one night and left a bit to be desired for the price. Probably more reasonable to charge £80-90 per night.

Old fashioned hotel with warm welcome. Staff were very pleasant and helpful. Room booked online as a deal was small, with comfy beds and well heated - in a cold snap this was most welcome. The shower room was good, spotlessly clean - but WHY no towel rails to hang up wet towels when there was wall space to provide... More
