We had not expected the boutique-hotel nature of this guests house, so what a lovely surprise! The rooms are beautifully done and the [shared] bathroom absolutely first-class. Add to that a lovely breakfast room (and breakfast) and reception and classy, friendly staff. Mallaig overall was the clear highlight of our U.K. tour, and this guest house played no small part in that.
Even the toiletries (Scottish Fine Soaps in heavenly Sea Kelp) and woolen bed throws (Bronte) are brilliant. Love, love, love this place!
Yes, it needs wi-fi, although we did manage . . .
By the way, please note that any less-than-glowing reviews are old, I expect prior to current management or at least prior to a thorough renovation and poshing judging by photos.
