I enjoyed my many times here when I stayed nearby. the atmosphere is a good one with a mixture of locals and fishermen coming in. the pints were good priced, the hotels are good value for money and the staff were always good to me! I would come back to this pub! I have good memories of this place!

We visited the bar. What a laugh we had. The bar was propped up by a few drunken locals and locals coming straight in from the fishing boats and boat yards. It is what it is, spit and sawdust, but with friendly locals happy to chat to visitors.

Came in here for which turned out to be only one drink last Friday afternoon. It's a place full of locals who come in straight from work, rough and ready and a bit spit and sawdust was my initial impression. I long plastic seating area across the back of the pub, a pool table and a few tables with chairs.... More

Proximity to station perfect. Even though they had our booking for the wrong day we were accommodated without fuss and given a choice of room. Mallaig is a small working fishing port, anyone expecting city standards needs to think again. The hotel does not have a restaurant but there are many eateries of excellent quality within metres of the hotel.

Good location next to the train station and ferry terminal, clean rooms, the staff is very kind but unfortunately no breakfast available in the hotel. You must visit the bar, where regular local visitors are villing to help. The building is old, there are some cracks in the wall. I enjoyed my stay in the room with a great view... More

I enjoyed every moment of my stay in Mallaig thanks to the Marine Hotel. With their local insight into the best country walks, best restaurants, and general great humour my stay was as welcoming and friendly as anyone could hope for. The bar downstairs is visited by regulars, fishermen and inhabitants of their untarnished, coastal utopia. Way of life here... More

No hot water. Half the electrics not working. Some rooms look out onto a wall less than 18 inches away. No staff to sort things out. An absolute disgrace to Scotland.

I stayed at this hotel in the summer of 2010. Undertaking re-furbishments, I realised the staff's embarrassment. However, the attitude of the staff and the people I met at the bar was irreproachable. I suspect sassenachs, including those from across the (Atlantic), ditch don't get it.

This was the only hotel we could find with two vacant rooms and we were not expecting mutch. First impressions were ominous but we were told when booking exactly what we would get. No reception, collect keys from the bar, and no breakfast. The price of 25 pounds per person seemed reasonable for what was offered. Our rooms on the... More
