We own a guest house in Inverness so our weekends away are limited. 'Itison' advertised a 2 night stay deal at the Morar hotel in a sea view room. I emailed the hotel requesting availability for the last weekend in October and IF available, pencil me in before buying the deal. I picked up the reply the following day with... More

I have just spent three days at this wonderful hotel. The proprietor and his staff are very friendly and do everything they can to make you comfortable. It is an old fashioned hotel, and the rooms are very comfortable. In addition, the views of the sea lock are wonderful, looking out to the isles of Rum and Skye. Sunrise is... More

Thank you so much for your kind review on the food, comfort and staff service. We work hard to ensure guests' needs are met and given the setting, Morar is the perfect place for a relaxing break.

I had my tea in here a couple of nights running. Food was great. The bar is really nice, proper old school hotel bar area. The new owners are trying hard, and it's working. Worth dropping in on a Thursday night particularly. There's a cute quiz that kicks off around 8, which is worth a visit in itself.

Stuck in the 60's this hotel is unlikely to make it to 21st century standards without a total rethink.Our room (25} had mould round the bath, a dirty floor and bath panel and the shower curtain kept falling off as it was balanced on the wall tiles.

We found your intrusive questioning unacceptable since most guests come here to enjoy the scenery and walking, not to delve into other people's business and learn all the waiters' names and backgrounds. The room was clean and functional infact, but you omit 21st century features like a new hot water system, contract laundry, excellent food along with free wifi, barista... More

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
