Booked a classic room here at the last minute as our ferry had been re-routed from Oban to Mallaig. Very friendly attentive staff. We had a lovely spacious room on the first floor which had been refurbished recently as it had a modern ensuite shower room. All staff offered help with our case. Cooked Breakfast was freshly done and served... More

The hotel is in an excellent location minutes from the station and the ferry terminal. The rooms are perfectly adequate and the views are good. The food was good and the service excellent. The irritating thing is the WiFi. It's only available in reception and part of the first floor (we were on the second). There are a limited number... More

We had visited this hotel on many occasions for a drink only in their conservatory that overlooks the islands. After learning that the hotel had undergone some refurbishing we decided to stay for one night in a Premier Sea View room. The room was tastefully decorated and very comfortable with a view to match. The evening menu was fairly comprehensive... More

Stayed here in April for the easy location for the ferry. Room on the top floor with poor headroom. Breakfast was poor for the price. 1 member of the party had burnt kippers that should never have seen the light of day. At half the price this was poor.

The West Highland Hotel is a lovely place, furnished and decorated to a really high standard. The food was delicious and staff were friendly. The rooms in the annex at the back are a bit of a let down though, underwhelming shower facilities and a bit damp smelling. Definitely ask to stay in the main hotel!!

There was 20 of us booked a table at the West Highland to have a meal. We were given a amazing meal with a beautiful fresh choice of local produce. Everyone of us loved the meal and would recommend the West Highland the place to go for a meal in Mallaig. So why not go and have a meal it's... More

We had a refurbished room. Really comfortable big room and lovely bathroom. I can't fault this place. It is just above the interesting little port village of Mallaig. Breakfast was very good with a menu as well as a buffet Very friendly helpful staff, especially at checkin

Clean room. Comfortable beds. Lots of stairs to our room is the only minus. Late booking so if more notice could have been given would have asked for room on lower floor. Could do with a bit of sprucing up, especially at the beginning of the season. Shower head black with mould. Staff friendly.

Even though the trek from the railway station was a bit more of a slight hill that we were told, It was worth it. The staff was wonderful, including carrying our heavy bags up to the third floor for us. The lobby was inviting with comfy leather chairs and a fireplace. The weather was horrible, so we spent a lot... More

Stayed one night having travelled to Mallaig by steam hauled train. A short climb up the hill from the town and station, but initially difficult to identify as there was no sign on the front to even indicate it was a hotel and as noted elsewhere the entrance way could do with being spruced up a bit! Once inside, the... More
