We stayed in this hotel on a weekend visit to Arran. Good size room with double bed, sofa bed, bath and shower and little balcony with table and chairs where we could sit and enjoy the view of otters and seals on the rocks. The room was clean and modern with tea/coffee facilities, hairdryer, flat screen tv, arran aromatics toiletries... More

Stayed for two nights with my wife. We booked with a days notice and were given a room overlooking Pladda Island and the Ailsa Craig - a view to die for. The management and staff couldnt have been more helpful and friendly. The hotel was great and the food excellent. I enjoy malt whisky and there were many to sample.The... More

I stayed here for two nights and its been an absolutely brilliant experience. The rooms are clean and some of them offer a great view of the beach which is literally a step out of the door. The structure is an old family home which gives a sense of how times would have been a century back in Kildonan. The... More

My wife and I have just returned home from a three night break in the Kildonan and what a fabulous break it was. I should state from the outset that on arrival we were shown to our deluxe suite on the first floor (room 8) that we were told was the honeymoon suite. What a room. The seating area and... More

Amazing views from the dining room and most of the bedrooms, was at this hotel for a few nights and the accommodation was very comfortable. We ate in the dining room and the bar, both offer the same menus. Food to a high standard and breakfast kept you going for the day ahead. Great base to visit the east and... More

A beautiful seafront hotel. With views to die for over to Ailsa Craig. The hotel was really lovely and laid back. Staff were great and the food was reasonably priced and delicious. Thoroughly recommend this lovely hotel.

Went here with friends and had burgers and fish and chips. Both meals were top notch with a brilliant view over pladda lighthouse and ailsa Craig. Beach worth a stroll along followed by a pint, you need a driver unless staying very local as bus/taxis can be expensive

We stayed here for 4 nights during our 'mini-moon' trip to Arran. Kildonan is just beautiful - a landscape artist's heaven. From the garden and the breakfast/dining room you can sit and watch the waves roll in. Our room was large, comfortable and well thought out. It was also spotlessly clean and serviced every day, even when we had the... More

Located right on the shore this amazing hotel boasts delux accommodation, stunning views, great service and choice of bar/bistro or wonderful restaurant. The location is the real treat - constantly changing as tide ebbs & flows, the distant lighthouse set on a small island, glows in the sunlight, rocks surface & wild otters play. Bliss....

This hotel could be absolutely stunning if it was managed properly. I personally believe it's the little things that matter, e.g. walking into a grubby entrance area which needed a good sweep was not a good omen. Staff standing outside the pub door smoking as one passed by from the car park did not look very professional either. The main... More
