I stayed at the West Highland Hotel in October as an overnight stop prior to catching the Skye Ferry. The hotel is a large and imposing building with excellent views across to Skye, Rum and Eigg. As a single traveller, my stay got off to an excellent start when I was given a room with superb sea views - instead... More

My wife and I loved this hotel. The view of the harbour from our window was stunning as was the view from the front of the hotel. Late in the afternoon we sat in the lobby lounge in wingbacked chairs drinking coffee,eating Scottish tablet and listening to traditional music. Our room was very comfortable and the bathroom quite large for... More

This hotel is situated very near the harbour and train station so it is in an ideal location. Public areas and most rooms command breathtaking views over the bay to Rhum and Skye. We had a room on the top floor with a stunning vista but the sloping eaves were a bit of a problem in the poorly lit ensuite.... More

Professional, family-run hotel. Dining room and bedroom thoughtfully and stylishly decorated. Breakfast was excellent, local kippers, full Scottish, plus buffet. Table beautifully appointed with linen, good cutlery, and enough space - a decent sized table, with good space between tables. Great view of the sea, Skye and islands, from the dining room. Staff were excellent, polished and professional, appearing when... More

Friendly staff. Great atmosphere. Warm. High standard of accommodation. I only had breakfast but is was all well cooked and presented. Definitely one to go back to when time allows. Probably worth booking as hotel was full when I was there in October.

Charming historic hotel overlooking the water on a hill above the small fishing village. Rooms are small but nice. Cosy fireplace in lobby and good restaurant. Staff are very acommodating. Recommend taking the train from Glasgow and staying a couple of nights. Not a lot to do right in Mallaig but only 30 minute ferry ride to Isle of Skye... More

This Hotel is a bit dated but we had comfortable beds and the place was clean, nice views we stayed on our way further North and would recommend it if you need to stay at Mallaig. We had a good evening meal and full breakfast, along with lovely views - no complaints

My party of four had lunch at the West Highland Hotel in Mallaig after a lovely lunchtime cruise. Just before we boarded I had asked the receptionist if it would be possible to have a late lunch, explaining our schedule, and she booked us in with a smile and no problem at all. We sat in the Conservatory and enjoyed... More
