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

I must have checked in on a previous reviewers second night. Yes the carpeting is old and wallpaper faded, but the windows were new, the room was clean, and the beds comfy. My view was superb and even though I was located over the reception, the music at the wedding wasn't rowdy enough to keep me awake. I had a... More

we stayed here just for one night and it was reasonable - the décor is very 1980s and needs to be updated especially the bedrooms - the breakfast was good and the staff friendly. Mallaig is a pretty town and we took a ferry across to the Isle of Skye which was very scenic and would spend couple of days... More

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
