Great accommodation, from the room, the food, the pub, to the lovely Scottish breakfast and the warm welcoming lady who made it and served us. Would come back again. We found the review on Trip Advisory were correct and helped us select this great spot. Right by the harbour.

Mallaig can be bitterly cold and so it was on the day we visited. This called for something to warm us up. Both staff on duty at this Inn gave us a warm welcome and it had a glorious blazing real fire lit. We had some hot chocolate and Guinness. Perfect.

My party of four had the most delicious fish and chips at this cosy restaurant. When we first arrived( unbooked), they were full due to a large party of people from the Steam Railway. However, the staff were very friendly and helpful,and instead of being turned away out of hand,we were asked to pop back in 20 minutes and we...

We stayed here for two nights and had a very pleasant experience. The staff were extremely welcoming and made you feel right at home.

We stayed one night in Mallaig and I'd chosen the Chlachain Inn at random. What a great choice! Only 2 mins from the railway station too. Room was lovely and spotlessly clean. Staff in the bar (Sarah and Charlie) were very friendly and welcoming. Eleanor made us breakfast in the morning which was great and couldn't do enough for you.....offering...

Popped in around 2pm after a lovely walk round the circular route of Mallaig. Was greeted by a lovely open fire and a really friendly bar man. Ordered a pint of cider for myself and a half for the ball and chain. Not a bad price only £3.30 a pint which is about right. Sat ourselves down by the fire...

First visit, first impression room immaculate. My mum and I stayed on 10 Feb for 1 night in room 1 (twin), beautifully decorated room with everything you could need. Also a lovely seated decking area outside patio doors, unfortunately too cold to sit out in Feb. The staff were very helpful and friendly, we had dinner in the bar fresh...

We stayed here because on the website it looked great and we knew the food was amzing as we'd been before for a meal. Plus it was reasonably priced. Our room (2) was lovely, but the bed was quite small.....it wasn't long enough for him. I was tempted to look in 2 of the other rooms which were empty (keys...
