West Highland Hotel, Mallaig
Historic, but no Wi-Fi or cellphone reception
Old hotel with history. Hotel show sign of age and could use some renovation. As stated there are only Wi-Fi in lobby and it's not very fast. No Wi-Fi is not always a problem, but when cellphone is almost not existing in room you can not get online at all

Wish I spent more time at the hotel
Stayed in the King's Suite...such a unique and lavish room at a reasonable rate. There was a large deck area that overlooked the ocean and the Isle of Skye...great for having a drink at sunset or a coffee or Cadbury hot chocolate in the morning. Would definitely stay here again!

Mallaig Gem
This hotel exceeded my expectations. The room/bath was clean and comfortable. The staff was fantastic. The restaurant was out-of-this-world. I definitely would stay here again.

West Highland Hotel, Mallaig
Great view of harbor area. Hotel is up a short hill from the very small town. Restaurant is up-scale for the area. Evening meal in the midst of a sunset. Walk up a hill offered views we can only call great. Easy walk down to train station, where in summer a steam train is available along the regular rail line. Ferry terminal nearby. Pictaresque doesn't describe it!
