I had booked this hotel and was planning on asking my girlfriend to marry me while we were on the island. I emailed them with my plans, and asked for a nice room, but keep it quiet. Upon arrival we got room 202! Huge suite with the balcony on the front of the hotel. Amazing. That was the Friday night.... More

We came here last year and stopped for a couple of nights. This time we only used the restaurant. The food was good if not perfect, but the service, despite a low number of covers was glacially slow. All the service staff appeared to be in their late teens / early 20s and whilst lovely, they were also inept and... More

Dear Radioheadkiduk, Thank you for your reviews, both this year and last. We genuinely do appreciate that you understand about good food and customer service, however, as a widely travelled person, we are disappointed that you do not appreciate that much of the training for this industry really does have to be 'one the job'. At the Douglas we have... More

We were a group of 21 persons coming to the beautiful Isle of Arran for a walking holiday, having made the bookings with the Douglas Hotel already in 2013. And we can only confirm all the good things that have been said about this hotel, it's simply a wonderful place to stay if you go to Arran !! Nice rooms,... More

On a beautiful sunny day in Arran we had lunch on the outside deck at the Douglas Hotel. On the recommendation of Manager, Jim , we all had the shared seafood platter with delicious mussels, crayfish, salmon and pate. Unfortunately we were not staying in the hotel, but looking around it looked very stylish with lots of attention to detail.

Only stated one night but wish it had been more. The Hotel was stunning, my room was huge and the bed very comfortable. The Bistro food was delicious, best meal I've had in a while & not over priced. I hope to be back soon!

We have had a lovely 3 night stay in this excellent, tastefully refurbished Hotel. The hotel is within easy walking distance of the ferry terminal so it's a great location. Our room was fantastic with a huge bay window overlooking Brodick Bay. The beds are very comfortable and we heard any noise from the hallway or other rooms The staff... More

We had a lovely weekend here. The room was spacious and well-appointed with a beautiful view. All the staff smiled and were very pleasant and helpful. The situation of the hotel is ideal, good fun watching the ferries come in! Good choice of menu and it was well cooked and reasonably priced. A very good base to explore Arran.

Just spent 3 nights at the Douglas hotel. We had a really nice time here, the rooms were quite large and well appointed. Staff were very friendly, helpful and professional and the location was extremely convenient. The only slight downside was that the internet on the second floor seemed to be a bit unreliable (laptops and ipads would drop in-and-out... More

This is an older hotel but has been refurbished to give it a more modern, spacious feel than most older hotels in Britain. It is very close to the ferry dock. We had the cottage, which is charming. It has a sleeping loft, accessed by a spiral stair, nice large bathroom, fully equipped kitchen. Lots of towels. Plenty of hot... More

Had a wedding event at the Douglas, with heaps of Scottishness, the whole three days was simply brilliant, the staff were polite and welcoming, the food was presented well and delicious and the quality of the rooms was exceptional, I couldn't recommend more.
