We stayed here for a couple of nights whilst visiting family on the island and were overwhelmed with its locality, the views from our room were stunning. The rooms are comfortable, warm and well stocked with tea, coffee and all bathing requirements. We ate in the hotel each night and took advantage of the 20% off by dining between 5-6pm,... More

The hotel facilities were excellent. Nice bar with a good selection of wines, beers and spirits. The single room was spacious with good wi fi and a lovely bathroom. The staff, overall, were very helpful and knowledgeable about the island. A special thanks to Deborah at reception and Debbie the chambermaid for all their assistance. The only downside was the...

On a wee jaunt around the Isle of Arran we stopped at the Kinloch Hotel in Blackwaterfoot for a quick snack. Arriving at 3pm we were a bit late for lunch which finished at 2:30pm but they still had a soup and sandwich menu along with a selection of scones and cakes. Local Arran ham sandwich served with a crisp... More

Myself and my husband attended an event at The Kinloch last night. Every detail was planned to perfection. The function suite was beautifully decorated and all the public areas were spotless and fresh. The staff were really friendly, exceeding polite & engaging throughout. A great team! The food was utterly outstanding. I had duck to start, beef for my main... More

Just arrived back home after a great fund raising event and St Andrew Dinner dance in this wonderful hotel. The staff were extremely professional, friendly and very well motivated. The evening went like clockwork, the food was amazing and perfectly organized and coordinated. Over 100 guests fed in less than an hour. The double room was well furnished and cozy.... More

The restaurant and main bar are a delight with the most reasonable prices. The food choices were quite large and is of the highest... More

Blackwaterfoot is the other side of Arran from Brodick. The location is great with excellent sea views and good walking close by + golf if you do! The hotel was welcoming with reasonable rooms if a bit old fashioned. The restaurant was good with very efficient staff and a homely bar area. Make sure you book 'cos there is only... More

This is a gem of a hotel. The building is traditional, in a great setting on the seafront looking across to the Mull of Kintyre. What makes this hotel so special is its staff. It would be unfair to single out any one of them, in part because some are "behind scenes". Each gives very fully in making sure the... More

Rooms are furnished to a high standard. Food is excellent. The hotel had no difficulties coping with a large group (75) of walkers. Swimming pool. Beautiful seaside setting. Good value. The staff could not have been more welcoming.
