Just back from 3 nights here. Okay so a wee bit tired in places but our room was excellent with a wonderful view. The most notable aspect of the hotel is the staff, they are so attentive, pleasant and efficient I cannot rate them highly enough. I hope the management appreciate what a great team they have.

Had a wonderful stay at The Kinloch Hotel. Room was comfortable, very clean and with amazing views and so peaceful and quiet. Ate in the hotel each night and the food and service were excellent - the staff could not do enough for you. Great location right on the seafront and in the centre of the village which has a...

we have just returned from Kinloch hotel and I have to say was disappointed. The hotel is tired and in dire need of a full refurb! Friends staying with us were offered a change of room, as theirs was worse than ours! Threadbare carpets, badly scratched furnishings and mouldy bathrooms are not to be anticipated at £120 per night, shame... More

Called for lunch on a round island trip on a motorbike. Found a table on the large grass at front and were completely on our own. The staff were happy to bring down the meals which were tasty and well presented. Beautiful view, cannot comment on interior as only visited the toilets but looked clean and smart.

Stayed with family at the hotel for just one night. The service was excellent. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. Dinner was very good with a good selection of seafood - 2 of my family said they had had the best fish and chips ever! I enjoyed the use of the swimming... More

The Kinloch is in a wonderful position on the 'Scotland in Miniature' island of Arran - overlooking the Mull of Kintyre . The hotel is comfortable, welcoming and has great staff, food and atmosphere. It's used a lot by locals which says it all. Great base for a relaxing holiday on this beautiful island Can't recommend it enough !

A first-class experience. Stunning location, friendly staff, good local food and the sun shone for three days. Arran is indeed Scotland in miniature. Go there soon. And look up the wee bakery next door. Great bread and sweet treats.

I recently stayed here with my husband, 6 year old daughter and two young dogs. The food was excellent, service excellent and the location is perfect looking over to Mull of Kintyre. They use local companies for their produce, especially The Arran Butcher. We will all be back.

This hotel is located in Blackwaterfoot, a very quiet and beautiful village on the Isle of Arran. The hotel has been run by the same family for many decades now and the staff are very helpful, polite and attentive. The room was pleasant, but not spotless.We had a beautiful sea view from our room and there was adequate tea/coffee facilities... More

When this accident happened as we had no transport the owner took us to the hospital where I had excellant attention. Then he took us back to the hotel where staff... More
