“Friendliest place we stayed in Scotland - plus it's wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

We spent just a night in Mallaig between the highland train from Glasgow and the ferry to Skye. Fortunately I'd reserved a room with Fiona well in advance as I can now see why she is kept fully booked! From the moment you cross the threshold, you know you will be treated as an honored guest. Fresh flowers, bunches and bunches of flowers, adorn the public spaces. Every room is carefully planned and subtly, tastefully decorated. Our shared bath was a master bedroom retreat: power shower stall beside a gleaming white tub under a large roof window. Soaps and toiletries were lovely and exotic to our American standards. The soft wool throws on the twin beds were welcome and cosy. Breakfast was huge and delicious and was made available early for our ferry departure. Loved the classy cafetières for both my decaf and my daughter's full-octane. Fiona also helped with my request to sort out the undeterminable bus schedule on Skye. To top it off, when we discovered in Inverness that my daughter had left her retainers in Mallaig, Fiona mailed them to meet us in Edinburgh before we departed for the States. This is someone you would seek out as a best friend, much less an innkeeper!

Faultless in every way. Great decor, position, views, welcoming. Nice breakfast.Only £35 for the night. Really worth the trip up to this beautiful area eg on the railway. It doesn't always rain in Scotland!

Excellent - we had room 2 which looks down over the harbour. The place is only a few minutes from the harb our and the station. The room's really comfy, the breakfast is great, and Fiona is outstandingly helpful. A really great place!

I stayed here 4 years ago and was so impressed I decided to return. The standards are still top notch. I would like thank Fiona and her team for providing excellent friendly service. I cannot recommend The Sea View highly enough.

Spent one night in a twin room which was very spacious and absolutely immaculate. Not en suite but bathroom was only shared by 2 rooms and looked brand new with a hot powerful shower and separate large bath. Breakfast had a very large selection if fresh produce and a great cooked option. Off street parking and walking distance to local attractions. I would definitely recommend this b&b to friends and will certainly stay there again myself.
