The hotel occupies a commanding position up the hill with stunning views of the Sound of Sleat and the Isles of Skye, Rum and Eigg beyond. Unfortunately, there is no taxi rank at Mallaig station so you have to haul your luggage up the hill but it is not far (perhaps half a mile). It is also advisable to ignore... More

Catching morning ferry to Skye so wanted to stay in mallaig. This hotel is up high so has excellent views. The hotel while old design, had character and plenty of shared space for lounging, checking wifi etc. it did suffer from creaking floor boards and noise as doors closed. The bed was comfortable, bathroom functional (not large) and room reasonable... More

The new terrace restaurant at the front of the hotel is a fabulous addition to the property, with spectacular views and we were greeted by friendly and helpful staff. The food is out of this world, everything handmade and you can tell they use only high quality produce, but very reasonably priced. Even the wine is of excellent quality to... More

... since we have been sitting at a breakfast table for 20 minutes whilst staff clear up dirty tables I have had some time on my hands. My guess is that they opened early for a departing coach tour, and we are not getting served because they are not yet open, however this is only a guess since no one... More

The staff at the check in have been told to advise customers that "because you booked through Booking.com you wont get any breakfast" and they make a point on their website that you should book direct to avoid paying 3rd party commission. Well I know what I booked and why I used Booking.com and I don't need anyone to rebuke... More

I'm leaving this review on behalf of my partner who has just been on a biking holiday with his mates round Scotland. They stayed here on Friday. He reports that the rooms very were clean and comfortable and the staff were friendly. Of note was that he (the idiot! ) left £200 in his room before checking out! Prior to... More

A very nice hotel and the best to offer in Mallaig it is clean and comfortable with a nice staff, it is not the Hilton but will make you welcome. The restaurant serves very nice seafood but is a bit expensive but the breakfast is one of the best I have had. Nice view over to Skye from our room... More

We spent one night in this excellent hotel and wished we'd spent more. The room with a sea-view was so well decorated and designed that we wanted to stay in it for longer: spacious, with good quality furnishings, very relaxing. The views from the restaurant were also good. Staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast was so-so, but the lunch... More

Very welcoming and friendly hotel. Amazing views from the new terrace restaurant and excellent food. Good service. Was a bit disappointed by breakfast until discovered at the choices on the menu were included in the B&B rate. Classic room was good, standard room could have been better but good for the price
