We stayed at the Hotel for two nights. When we booked the information that was e-mailed by the hotel was excellent. It made us aware that the facilities were incredible safe during these terrible times. The room was cleaned then sealed with a sticker put on the door. No one allowed in or out apart from us. Great and very reassuring. If we needed anything topped up we simply asked at reception, and it was handed over on plastic bags, which was also very reassuring. There is a covered area to sit outside for a drink which is attached to the bar. Totally understandable that there is no one allowed within the bar area, as it is small and would not be safe due to us all still having to distance. I saw people saying that there is no lounge to sit in. If it's a lounge that you want to sit in, surrounded by people, during Covid, then don't visit this wonderful hotel. They are sensible enough to know that it is not a good idea to provide that just now. But what they have successfully managed to do, is provide clean, safe,comfortable rooms and lovely freshly cooked food to enable visitors to enjoy the hotel, and stunning area. There is a choice to sit outside with polystyrene containers for ordering food from, or sit inside in the restaurant. Sit inside if you want your dinner served on a plate etc. We did and it was lovely. If you want to sit outside, then you will be served for in the polystyrene container, we were told that and we had a choice, just as any other visitor has a choice. It was great to know that the hotel is well booked out. This is ofcourse mainly due to the care they hotel has put in to providing a safe environment for all, and themselves, which some people don't think about. Its not just about us visiting, it's also about the safety of the staff. They are doing an amazing job in very difficult circumstances.

Spent a couple of nights at the Arisaig Hotel. Great location within easy driving distance of the wonderful beaches of Morar & if you are a Local Hero fan... Camusdarach beach. The hotel is a popular place for people to drop in for a drink or meal. Highly recommend making a reservation for food. We eat both nights at the hotel, we’re big seafood fans and our meals of Mussels, Seafood Pie & Lobster were excellent. You couldn’t charge anything to your room, so all drinks & meals had to be paid separately. Our room was comfortable but being on the top floor the wi-fi was poor. Breakfast was good plenty of choice with table service. Overall a good place to stay if visiting Arisaig.

We found the Arisaig Hotel to be working very hard to keep us safe from Covid 19 during our stay, and so we felt very safe. The hotel is scrupulously clean, with face masks worn while moving around inside and lots of hand sanitisers and sound procedures. Well done staff! Our room was cosy during dreadful weather, evening meal and breakfasts very good.

I don't often write really negative reviews but this place was just awful.
We have recently come back from a trip through the lochs, round the NC500 and across to Skye, 14 hotels in 15 days and hands down this was the worst by a long, long way!
The welcome was non existent, the guy barely looked up from his lap top to acknowledge our existence, he simply passed us a key and as it turns out the room was not ready for us so we found a man in our room taking stuff away, I still don't know if this was a member of staff or the last person to stay in the room?
The room was poor, the TV didn't work, the fan in the toilet (linked to the light switch) was so loud we daren't turn the light on at night because it woke everyone up, that is if you could sleep on the worst hotel bed I have ever had the misfortune of laying on. We booked a family room and were asked at the time for the age of the child (he's 14) we got a tiny bunk bed just about suitable for a toddler and there was no 3rd cup or 3rd towel for him to use. The window was so wobbly it nearly came out of the frame when my wife tried to open it.
The menu did not inspire confidence so we went elsewhere to eat (see separate review of the wonderful Library Restaurant) and we are glad we did because breakfast was pretty disappointing too, all this for close to £200 a night!
Really did have the feel of a place where the owners have just given up caring, please don't subject yourself to it and just drive a bit further down the road!

Despite Covid restrictions we enjoyed a lovely 3 days at the Arisaig Hotel.

Check in was a very easy process and the room we had (family room) was a really good size with front windows offering views over both the marina and the waterfront.

The food was good both in the evening and also breakfast which had lots of local produce on offer.

The evening meal had a nice mix of options however it would have been even better if there had been more changes from day to day. The hake & pea risotto was particularly tasty as was the artisan beef pie.

Unfortunately due to Covid the internal space in the hotel was limited to the dining room and the inside bar & lounge were out of action. This meant that drinks or food purchased at the bar end of the hotel needed to be taken outside on the covered patio area which for most of the time was fine but it did get a bit chilly later in the evening.

The Hotel is a beautifully appointed establishment right on Arisaig's quiet Seafront. The rooms are spacious and comfortable with all required amenities. The dining room is large, a bit austere but the food is very good with a big accent on fish dishes naturally. We dined on two consecutive evenings and the highlight for me was the Angus Brisket Beef with mash, shallots and glazed carrots. They also present on of the best cheese boards i have had anywhere. Staff were attentive, friendly and Helpful, especially Annie who was a joy. Rooms run at around £120 B&B for a twin or double. An excellent place for a 2 or 3 night stay.

Emailed the restaurant 4 days prior to booking to find out if they could cater for someone in our party on a restricted diet, I'm still waiting on that reply.

On arrival in Arisaig I called the restaurant 3 times and phone wasn't answered so due to it being a nice evening we walked the mile to be told no room at the Inn. If you'd answered your phone it would've saved us the walk.

For the following evening I booked early on their online website to save any issue and our booking was made.

Onto the restaurant it's pretty bland and food wise they do have a wide selection on offer but what's served up is pretty poor, especially their triple cooked chips that look as if there been cooked in something that's tripled aged. So if your going and served up the chips I hope they're better than what was on offer this evening. Seen a gent send his back due to the look of them.

After our meal we were looking for deserts and we where duly told by the waiting staff the kitchen wouldn't be doing any for another 10-15 mins due to how busy they were. Only issue I have with this was we had a 6 year old in our party and as most know kids don't have much patience, I asked if they'd make an exemption and even just serve ice-cream and as told duly "NO"

We did get our deserts and for my wife who's on a restricted diet she'd just asked for a jelly with no accompaniments and this was smothered by cream out a can. We didn't mention to staff as we felt we've got it now just make do.

Will we return, don't think we will as there's better on offer just up the road in Mallaig.

To sum up, fantastic location that the restaurant should strive on but what's on offer isn't benefitting of the area.

The room needed to be of a particularly high standard to offset the unfriendly service and lacklustre food, but unfortunately it was drably decorated and uninspiring and certainly overpriced, which was a shame because it is a great building with lots of character. It was mostly clean but some surfaces like the window sill were covered in dust.

Check in felt rushed and inattentive, and we were made to feel a little like a nuisance. Dinner was worse with the waitress being one step away from being overtly rude. Complete lack of care shown by both.
Thankfully, the waiter who served us breakfast was much more friendly.

Did it make up for it with the food offering? No. The food was fine, but basic and lacking inspiration. The continental breakfast offering was unappetising and pitiful.

Overall, the worst and most expensive stay in our highlands tour. We won’t be returning.

I’ve had the pleasure of staying in many hotels in Scotland but this place is truly awful. We were stuck with room 6; a tiny, shabby, noisy room thanks to being above the kitchen and constant fan noise which continued until 11 pm and began next morning before 7! Curtain fell down constantly from pole on window, TV didn’t work so no chance of drowning out throbbing noise. Receptionist was unhelpful and unsympathetic; she claimed web site made it clear, it does not. Manager not available and phone calls ignored. We were charged 140 pounds for this very unpleasant experience. I urge anyone wanting to stay in the area to ignore this hotel in case you end up in the grim room 6.

There are some really good points, and sadly, some really low points of our stay at the Arisaig Hotel. The location is fine as a base ahead of exploring the Highlands or beautiful white beaches nearby. The dinner food and service from the young men working in the bar/restaurant area was really friendly and notable. However the women working in the hotel (at reception and breakfast service) were very unfriendly and a bit cutting in their way of talking, which wasn't appreciated at all. The hotel is clean, has some nice wee quirks and a homely feel but is overpriced for what's on offer by way of the room quality. Overall a kind of uncomfortable experience due to the cold welcome and strange service at breakfast. Dinner and views made up for it a bit. Doubt we'll be back though.
