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

We were staying at the seal shore campsite adjacent to the Kildonan Hotel on possibly the windiest night of the year. After our tent was about to take off, we made the best decision of our lives to come next door to get a room. The staff was so wonderful and accommodating that they took us in despite looking like...

This hotel is adjacent to the Seal Shore Campsite of Kildonan. One night, my sister and I went camping at the Seal Shore, and the wind, over time, began to pick our tent off of the ground in a cold and violent fashion. Looking to my sister, we knew that there would be no sleep occurring in the tent that... More

Stunning location, it is right on the shore . Very comfortable bed. there was no need to go out for a meal as the food was excellent.the island itself is beautiful especially the West coast. Nice to see Sunday being a day of rest as it used to be on mainland Britain.

This hotel has 1 of the best views in Scotland , but that's where it ends . When we arrived we were told of a boiler problem so there was no heating . The wooden window blinds nd the carpet were filthy, as if building work had been going on . I was given a jug of sour milk for... More

I'm sorry to hear that you did not enjoy stay at the Kildonan. It is true that we were having work done on our heating system, neccesary maintenance which could not be avoided. All customers staying were provided with high power oil radiators while this was being carried out and so no one was without heating as you describe. I... More

As frequent visitors to the Isle of Arran both my husband and myself were delighted when our daughter announced this is where she wanted to get married. We went over to Arran last year so both she and her future husband could look at venues. The first place we took them to was the Kildonan Hotel. We met Anne the... More

Thank you for your kind comments. I think we all enjoyed the wedding just as much as you did! A wonderful group of very nice people. Dogs as you say are always welcomed here and the bulldogs were certainly the stars of the show. Very happy to hear you enjoyed the rooms and service and of course the wedding (despite... More
