My best B&B experience to date. was a very last minute getaway and so glad we chose Springbank. The room was immaculate, very cozy and warm. The bathroom was very spacious and fitted with an amazing rain-style shower complete with high quality Scottish soaps etc, PERFECT after our hillwalking (and getting caught in the rain and hail- what a treat to come back to). Sandra was very welcoming and really helpful, recommending some amazing dining experiences just a short walk away in town. We enjoyed some wonderful seafood and a few drinks thanks to her suggestions, despite the current government regulations and it being so late in the season. Breakfast also exceeded expectations, thoughtful and delicious!

Springbank Guest House.5***** star hotel standard in Mallaig, Scotland.
Fantastic location:
Springbank Guest House has a Truly iridescent view across the harbour where the fishing boats land their catch and the ferry can take you on further adventures throughout this beautiful picturesque, mystical country of Scotland over to the Isles of Skye. Canna, Muck, Rhum and Eigg. Everything you need restaurants. shops, trains are literally a 2 minute walk. Sandra and her staffs' hospitality are really lovely, everything you require from a top class establishment is catered for 5 star experience. The breakfast includes choices of fruit juices, fresh fruit salad. Croissant, toast and a selection of butter and marmalade and jams. Porridge with cream and honey. A very large full cooked Scottish breakfast, fresh kippers and more… tea and coffee.
Springbank en-suite spacious rooms are beautifully decorated and include Scottish fine soaps, biscuits and crockery and original art and limited edition prints. The standard of cleanliness is extremely high. The best sleep I have ever had. Parking is free adjacent to the Springbank Guest House. I would fully recommend Springbank Guest House when visiting Mallaig in Scotland. I know I will definitely return to Springbank Guest House soon. Thank you. A Brown.

My two daughters booked a train trip from Glasgow to Mallaig as a birthday treat as I had wanted to do this train journey and it was great. They booked us into the Springbank Guest House for an overnight and I couldn't fault it. From the moment we entered you could see it was a quality Guest House we had a lovely front room spotlessly clean and comfortable overlooking the harbour and with views over to Skye. Great choices on the breakfast menu and it was fresh and plentiful. Would certainly recommend.

Have stayed here a couple of times with friends. Only a couple of years ago is was £60 a night. Now with an added toilet in the room it is £115. They advertise FREE breakfast and FREE parking. Parking is actually on the road, and breakfast (for what it is worth) may be included, but is certainly not free. I used to get a full English breakfast here, but now it is just cheap continental and for the same price. I am also concerned about the lack of privacy in the rooms. On the surface, Sandra is friendly and welcoming, but all considered I shall not stay at Springbank again.

Springbank was exactly as billed; a traditional B&B with views across to the harbour in Mallaig. Parking is available immediately outside and the town centre, with cafes and other eateries is a short walk away.

Our room was small but freshly and brightly decorated and spotlessly clean. We had a comfortable night's sleep and a tasty breakfast the next morning before catching the ferry to Skye just a short distance away. Mallaig is just a small town but the surrounding area has lots to offer and the coast between Mallaig and the more touristy Arisaig to the south has amazing white sand beaches.

Perhaps not the best choice for an extended stay - Springbank is quite small and our room would not have been big enough had we been returning to relax each day after hiking or otherwise exploring - but as a stopover it was perfect.

Stayed here for 1 night prior to catching the ferry to Skye. On arrival the owner greeted us and explained measures in place in regards to Covid and what facilities were available. We were allocated room 2 with a fantastic view overlooking the harbour. The room was beautifully furnished with luxury toiletries and refreshments available. Breakfast was beautifully presented with fresh fruit, juices and cereal followed by a choice of hot breakfasts. Restaurants and shops 5 minutes walk.The guest house far exceeded our expectations and we would definitely stay here again.

I stayed at the Springbank with my father in Sept 2022. We can not rate this beautiful home highky enough! We received such a warm welcome and were able to check into our room early - which was hugely appreciated and stopped us having to lug our backpacks round the town. The room itself was beautifully decorated, everything was such high quality - the decor, the furniture, the finishing touches, the Toiletries, everything was first class. Beautifuk artwork all round the walls and the hallway and breakfast room were equally gorgeous and so tastefully decorated. It is clear that the owner has fabulous taste and style as every details had obviously been chosen with care and an artful eye. The breakfast itself was outstanding. Pre ordered the night before, it was simply perfection. We would without a doubt stay at springbank again and have in fact already recommended it to friends who are due to visit the town soon.

I came here with my partner, brother and mum and had a fantastic stay. The quality of the bedrooms are superb and we had sea views in the double room.
The bed was a high quality and we had a great sleep. This was accompanied with a fantastic breakfast inwhich we had sausage, eggs with toast and fresh croissants.

10/10 would highly recommend to anyone staying in the area.

We had a wonderful room with a beautiful sea view. Everywhere was spotlessly clean & welcoming. We stayed in 7 different B&Bs during our time in Scotland & this was one of our favourites. The breakfast was amazing. We had porridge with honey & cream which was delicious followed by a bowl of fresh fruit & a hearty cooked breakfast. Thank you Sandra for a perfect stay.
