Value
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.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We were staying elsewhere but had dinner at the Morar Hotel one evening. It was very good. The menu is traditional fare but well-cooked. The restaurant looks out over the estuary of the River Morar towards the Isle of Rùm and affords views of terrific sunsets. Service was pleasingly efficient and nicely relaxed, and we had a very pleasant chat with Sri Lankans Tuan and Akram. Well done.

Currently staying at the Morar Hotel. I cannot recommend it more highly. We have been treated so very well from the moment we arrived…..from the warm and welcoming reception, the very friendly and accommodating staff (a special thank you to Akram and Tuan), the clean and comfortable rooms, a view like no other….and to top it all off we have had the most breathtaking sunsets while enjoying the most delicious food (a big thank you to the chef!). Looking forward to returning same time next year 😊

Our meal at Morar Hotel was very pleasant- Tuan and Akram provided a good, efficient service. One of our choices was a curry, which was particularly nice; the rest of the menu offers a range of traditional, wholesome dishes. I feel the drinks menu would benefit from a better selection of wine, but overall, we wouldn’t hesitate to return.

Booked for two nights and stayed for one! Typical 2 or 3 star hotel that has probably struggled a bit post covid. It was clean and the guy at check in was friendly. But our room was half the size of a Travelodge but more than twice the price. Like another reviewer mentioned, it's not bad but it's overpriced.

We visited the Morar area for 3 nights in March and based ourselves at the hotel. We were very pleased with the hotel - Tuan and Akram were very helpful and genuinely seemed to take pleasure from people having a pleasant stay. Food was all fresh ( veg all obviouslying prepared from fresh - I really don't like frozen veg, breakfast was good quality bacon and sausage - you can always taste the difference), food was piping hot and served with just the right amount of waiting time. We had only planned to eat in the hotel one night but ate all 3 nights there, we felt the hotel deserved our custom for all of the trip. Sunsets over Rum ( viewed from the dining room) on the first 2 nights were truly world class - we may even have seen the Northern Lights those nights if we'd managed to stay awake but the crisp Highland air got the better of us and we were sharp to bed in the comfy rooms each night. It's not a 5 star hotel but that wasn't what we were looking for. If you are looking for clean, warm rooms, good fresh food served with an appropriate waiting time and a smile, then this is the place for you. It was definitely the place for us and we'll be back. Many thanks.

The Morar Hotel is right next to the railway station and has good car parking. We had a very pleasant 2 night stay whilst walking in the area, having arrived by train. The staff were all friendly, and happy to help in any way they could. We were looked after at breakfast and dinner by Akram and Tuan, who couldn't have been nicer. We found our hotel room to be comfortable, with good heating, hot water and an excellent shower. Note that there are no shops in Morar, so you need to plan ahead for food, though if you have the full breakfast and evening meal at the hotel (recommended) then a small snack plus our water was all we needed for lunch. The views from the hotel were stunning, and the famous Morar Silver Sands were worthy of their reputation. Some walking on quiet roads and on potentially muddy paths was required to see all that Morar has to offer. The larger town of Mallaig is just 3 miles up the road.

We were greeted by Trenton with a warm welcome and he ensured our needs were met for the remainder of our stay. Pet friendly although the room was a bit small, but comfortable. We ate our meals in the bar area because we had a pet, Akram was warm, friendly and attentive. He was always polite and had a great sense of humour. Although he was busy he maintained the bar area and level of service impeccably. We ate our breakfast in the restaurant in the morning. Tuan was polite, attentive and courteous. Although busy he ensured the food and beverages buffet was well maintained. The chef Agnus was lovely, provided excellent quality and well prepared food with a beautiful smile. A fantastic team that worked together to create a lovely atmosphere and experience.
