Just back from this lovely, laid back hotel and it lived up to my expectations. It's a bit quirky in places but our room had everything we needed but most importantly, spectacular views. Friendly bar, good food, service and quiet. It really is a proper get away from it all kind of place. X

The building and rooms are rather modern. The building, bar and sitting room are not particularly attractive and would need some refurbishment, but the location of the hotel, the amazing views on the bay - with otters and seals sunbathing just in front of the building - hte 'al fresco' dining area, all make the stay absolutely unforgettable. Also, the... More

We camped by the Kildonan hotel some eleven years ago when my wife and I first got together and first started going to Arran. We use to sit in the bar for meals and envy the people that could go upstairs to cosy rooms at the end of the night. To our young eyes, soon to be squelching across a... More

Thank you for your disappointing comments. I am glad to hear though that you thought our décor & rooms were of such a high standard and that you would like to return tomorrow based on this. Our staff are here to serve, efficiently and in a friendly manner. On busy nights (and this was a very busy Saturday) understandably, we... More

My wife and I stayed in March as part of a weeklong west coast of Scotland holiday. We arrived and had a fantastic balcony room, with amazing views over the bay. This was our first night of our holiday and we had only just checked in and was taken to our room and we were spotting seals basking in the... More

We went for our evening meal and had mixed feelings. We both had haddock and chips and both enjoyed the fish which could only be described as delicious. Unfortunately the fish was accompanied with what I would described as poor quality frozen chips. This is definitely pub grub which could be raised a level by adding decent quality fresh chips...

Lovely hotel in an idyll situation. We were very lucky with warm sun at the end of April but everything about the place was of an excellent standard . The rooms had obviously been upgraded fairly recently and our room was spacious and very well fitted. We ate dinner as well as breakfast and both were very good. Service was... More
