No matter which of these is your priority, you certainly won't come away from The Steam Inn disappointed. No matter how often I visit this first class establishment, I never find fault; whether it be with meals, drinks, accommodation or anything else. In fact I can thoroughly recommend The Steam Inn to ANYONE with total confidence. That is why I... More

Stayed in room 2 with a sea view, great hot shower and appreciated the cocopops and cafetiere in the morning. Very clean and nice service all round, thanks! As with a lot of small old hotels, sound proofing isn't great but ear plugs are provided so I would say that this is still a very good deal.

Friendly welcome from all staff we met. We also ate in the restaurant and food was excellent. Room lovely, no breakfast as such but there is a fridge in the room with fresh milk and they leave cereal and tea/coffee so that's enough and well priced! Definitely recommend this to anyone.

We arrived in Mallaig after the last ferry with no accommodation booked. We walked in and what a surprise - from the outside a quite bright green painted traditional looking pub, inside was a quite contemporary very welcoming restaurant and bar. We were offered a double room for £60 with no breakfast. It was spotlessly clean, a very good size,... More

Stayed here recently, but as others have mentioned, no breakfast. I also didn't notice this when booking, but it really isn't an issue, especially considering the £30 price charged. Not wheelchair accessible, as all accom is round the back of the hotel and upstairs. The only way to get to it is via a door behind a sofa in the... More

Having booked for three nights and been told on the phone that they took dogs (obviously by an untrained member of staff) we stayed one night with our dog and then were thrown out by a very rude and unreasonable manageress who seemed to be blaming us for something that was entirely their fault. This could have really ruined our... More

We are a dog friendly establishment and welcome pets into the bar - not in the bedrooms. This was explained to you on arrival, however there seemed to have been some confusion. Since you had taken your dog, and had booked for 3 nights, we let the dog stay. After hearing noise from your room and knowing you were out... More

The staff are all wonderful; friendly , and helpful to a fault. Convenient for rail, bus and ferry alike, and in easy walking distance of everywhere in Mallaig. Rooms ARE limited,... More
