My brother and I spent a couple of nights here last week on a short break. Everything about the place was first-rate - staff, accommodation, location - even the food, which can be unusual in otherwise good hotels. Also managed all this in a completely relaxed and unstuffy atmosphere - eg in one of the lounges there is an interesting... More

This is my second time staying at the Douglas and we really enjoyed our stay yet again. The room was lovely, really like the Harris tweed decor, and the bathroom is fab. The breakfast is nice and uses good Scottish ingredients which is a bonus. Staff very pleasant and friendly. The only small downside to our stay was the bar-... More

We visited the bistro in The Douglasl earlier this week. We phoned ahead to ask if vegan food could be provided and this was confirmed. On arrival the waitress advised us that the chef had planned a starter and main course for us and checked if the ideas were acceptable which they were. The food was absolutely delicious - moderate...

A 40th birthday treat for my wife, she is also going to New York but Arran was a stop gap until then. Not to be disappointed, a fantastic relaxing few days. Hotel is stunning, close to the ferry terminal and you do get a little noise off the ferry. Second floor room is a little too hot though. Really recommend... More

I stayed here with my wife and 5 year old daughter for 2 nights, and we stayed in the suite which overlooks the bay. The hotel is very well presented, the room was huge with plenty of space for our daughter's double sofa bed and with every position in the room having a great view. The bathroom was also huge....

This was our first visit to Arran and to the hotel. The ferry was really easy and the hotel is almost opposite the ferry terminal. The staff were all really friendly. We stayed in the suite, no 103. It was one of the most amazing rooms I have stayed in. It was a huge room and bathroom. It had breathtaking... More

As an islander, I have never been to this hotel, which is situated within 100 metres of the ferry terminal at Brodick. It commanded and elevated view of Brodick Bay and the Argyle hills. The bistro is to be found at the fron, which gives wonderful view from the windows or decked area. The food is extremley well presented, plentiful... More

Booked a double room at the Douglas Hotel but were pleasantly surprised on arrival to find that we had been given a free upgrade to a suite. We had a gorgeous sea front view and could relax and enjoy the views and lazily watch the ferry coming and going from huge bay windows. The room was spacious, modern and immaculate,... More

Good hotel for Men and Golfers Weekends. Sports Bar/Bistro. Not so good for Ladies or Families. No where to sit quietly - constant Radio 2 in all public areas. The bedroom was fitted out for men. Lighting so dull, especially in the bathroom for applying makeup. No long mirror. Needed a bigger wardrobe. No laundry service - no stationery in... More

Our 2 night stay at Douglas was a treat- especially since I have fond memories staying here with my family in the 1970's and in 1990. The hotel has undergone major renovations which have maintained the charm and style of this wonderful Victorian era hotel. Our room was spacious and clean, the bed was super comfy and the bathroom was... More
