After my disastrous stay at The Arisaig Hotel with my partner (also reviewed on TripAdvisor) when my best friend and I went away for a relaxing break together, we wanted lovely Arisaig but a better experience. My friend is vegan (but willing to eat eggs/cheese if in a very remote area and nothing else is on offer) so we contacted them ahead of time to let them know and they were very positive about it.

Also- I'd been to the Restaurant attached here on my last stay and thought the food was out of this world. However, we didn't realise that it had changed hands. The food was OK but not stunning.

I don't want to be too negative because the twin room was great (part of a new build annex out the back- quiet and private with a nice garden view), the building is so charming, and the owner did go out of his way to be friendly and helpful. And you can't beat the picturesque location.

It's just that: he promised us vegan meals for my friend, but in the end she wasn't really thrilled- almost no protein, even at breakfast, so she would have preferred to just go for an egg/cheese option but felt she couldn't as the guy was so eager about the trouble he'd gone to!

Still and all, that's a very specialist requirement, and I still think the room facilities were fab and it was nice to be treated so warmly. I would go again myself and recommend it, although my friend felt it was a bit overpriced- but she may have been grumpy due to inadequate nutrition!

It's other benefit is that you can get there on foot via the West Highland train line so it's good for travellers without cars. Just a 10-15 minute walk down to the shore from the Station.

We stayed here for 5 nights for our wedding at the local Astley Hall.

Rob and his wife were wonderful - great hosts with nothing being too much bother. We ate here 4 nights out of 5, that's how wonderful the food is. Locally sourced produce, all made on site by Robert. Bedrooms are clean, peaceful, homely and fresh - Cullen Skink and Venison Stew amazing. The Old Library is situated right in the heart of Arisaig - making it easy to see the stunning local area.

I simply can not recommend this place enough. Book in even just for dinner of you are passing through on your trip round the highlands, make a detour. It is worth it.

Nae bad for a wee man fae Glasgae!

As essential to Arisaig as Johnny Marr was to the Smiths. There is truly a light that never goes out in Arisaig.

Just back from 3 lovely relaxing days at the Old Library Lodge in Arisaig and will certainly be returning. Room 3 was very bright, clean and spacious with a suntrap of a verandah in the early evening. We booked dinner on our first night and were so well fed and entertained by Robert that we didn't go anywhere else - Beautiful sea bass, steak, fresh scallops, monkfish and sticky toffee pudding to die for, all served in a friendly welcoming atmosphere...a little gem

Thank goodness for Tripadvisor. When planning our West Highland Line train journey we were going to Mallaig at the end of the line but with such awful ratings for the hotels there decided to stop at Arisaig and spend the night at the Old Library Lodge and Restaurant which had such such good ratings. It was a good choice. It's a quiet little village and the hotel is perfectly situated right on the bay with great views over the water to Eigg. Our room was compact but with a 'tardis' like bathroom and as good a shower as you would find anywhere. Robert, the owner, is an ex film caterer - for the main characters we would guess rather than the extras! He was preparing dinner when we arrived and it was good that we had booked as he is very popular locally. The welcome and the comfortable room were just what we needed to complement the excellent journey there. After a very good breakfast we took a walk around the bay where we could spot interesting birds and see the basking seals which Robert had pointed out earlier. Before we left we were recommended a good restaurant by him in Glasgow (Guy's in Candlerigg) which was also excellent.
