The Stevenson Tour of the highlands of Scotland with our westie dog Angus continued to Mallaig. If you see previous posts you will realise how let down we were by the so called dog friendly statements in Scotland. However I made the best mistake in my life when I booked this hotel thinking it was in Mallaig, it's not ,... More

Stayed in one of their rooms to the rear if the property. First impressions were it needed a bit of attention but room was large and clean. All staff during our visit efficient, helpful and gave a strong sense of customer focus. We ate in the restaurant and while dinner was nice I thought the menu could have had more... More

I didn't stay the night here, and only had the fish and chips at the restaurant, but had to give this place a good review. After a late arrival in nearby Roshven, we were left with no place to eat, and nothing we could put together as a meal. Not even a convenience store was open anywhere in the vicinity.... More

I booked a double room for the following day and agreed price, arrival time etc. When I turned up I was told that the person who took the booking made a mistake and there was no room available. I was told in a very matter of fact way what had happened. There was no empathy, no hint of being sorry... More

A really great experience. Wonderful food, splendid accommodation and a fantastic location. What's not to like? From the moment of arrival the staff could not be more helpful. A delayed ferry did not mean that we were unfed.

Enjoyed a superb meal here. Looked after us very well, the waitress was really pleasant and engaged on a human being level and we'd certainly return. Location superb and the food was uncomplicated and well thought out. Simple food delivered with care. Don't hesitate.

We stopped in Arisaig for the evening after crossing from the Isle of Skye a few hours earlier. The Old Library is a restaurant with a few rooms over the restaurant. Our room looked out over the bay. The bed was a bit lumpy but it was actually better than it looked. More is going for this inn than meets... More

This is a fantastic place to stay. The rooms are spacious and very clean. The restaurant is in the main building and although small, is very comfortable and welcoming. A very friendly place with good food, will definitely return and will recommend to others.

I wouldn't go back. The personnel is very welcoming but the place in itself isn't stunning. Porridge served for breakfast is not very good. I feel we pay for the location and the nice view on the Hebrides. There is hardly any tea offered in the room (Just English breakfast tea whereas others offer also earl grey or tisane). Dinner...
