Thanks for your lovely comments. The public bar was reopened in 2015 but the hotel has actually traded continuously with substantial refurbishment in certain areas about 2 years ago. We are pleased everything lived up to expectations and it is our aim to meet or exceed those expectations, especially given the challenges of the remote location. We look forward to...

Having taken longer walking along the incredible beaches than I had planned I missed the train to Mallaig where fish and chips before the train back to Glasgow was a key part of the plan for what was an amazing day. Coming to my rescue was the Morar Hotel which in the 20 mins I had before the train provided...

I know the manager works very hard to please all our guests and we are delighted he was able to offer the takeaway range at such short notice. Nothing is too much trouble for the hotel and yes I think anyone who has completed the journey south knows they have to be looked after, which of course for our Great...

We stopped here for a coffee on our way to the Silver Sands and our welcome was less than enthusiastic. The lounge was nicely furnished with old sofas and arm chairs with a vast collection of magazines available for guests. We got the impression we were the only people there, and a bit of a hindrance. That said our waitress...

Ok, it was myself my good lady and my son. We had a double bed with a single bed as well in the room which was facing the road. It was a good size and not much to complain about to be honest would have loved a room that size looking on to the water but that wasn't an option...

To this day I have stayed at the Morar Hotel 2 times and will probably be there again this year as part of our coach trip.

Cant miss this place if you are swinging past morar. Dropped in for dinner and a drink ; The bar was more receptive to our orders than the restaurant. Food was average though the portions were decent.

BeachSupervisor, General Manager at Morar Hotel, responded to this review

Thank you for your review. Please note at busy times, the restaurant needs a dinner reservation and your best bet would be bar food instead. We are always pleased to see people, but please ring ahead, since we do have bookings and pre-booked tours stopping by.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Recently taken over and substantially refurbished, one of Scotland's most historic hotels, the Morar Hotel is a friendly family-owned Edwardian mansion house on the romantic 'Road to the Isles', 3 miles from Mallaig, the Southern Gateway to the Isle of Skye. Commanding breathtaking views of the famous Silver Sands of Morar and the Inner Hebridean islands of Rum & Eigg, its panoramic views and comfortable accommodation have made it the perfect coastal escape for many years. Built in 1902, originally as the Station hotel, it is only metres from the train station. Now a modern character hotel with wifi and satellite TV and open to the public, it is only 50 minutes from Fort William by the new road, or an hour by scheduled train services or in the summer by the special Jacobite Steam Train, as featured in the Harry Potter films. The overnight service from London (Euston) leads to Morar Station opposite the hotel and car hire is available in Fort William or Morar. ... more   less
