This hotel although small boasts not only idealic views of Holy island and Lamlish bay but is a central hub for both locals and tourists.to be perfectly honest I don't really think that we have experienced a place where you automatically feel that you have become part of this friendly community from the moment you set foot off the ferry.This...

Excellent location right on the bay with views of Holy Isle. Overall, the hotel could do with a good clean and paint. While the bedrooms are large, the bathrooms are small and the showers diminutive - and they prefer to deliver warm rather than hot water. The breakfasts are excellent and the dinners average. The staff are the high point... More

I booked this hotel by mistake instead of the Glenisle 100 yds down the road. Oh dear, will my wife ever forgive me??? Having been shown to Room 3 our first impressions were one of disappointment. The hotel décor is tatty and drab as was our room. Brown walls, brown carpet, brown chairs, brown curtains, brown wardrobe, brown bedcover and... More

Bit dissapointed with this hotel...There did not appear to be any manager running this place and it seemed to be down to the bar staff to handle the hotel residents. We stayed in room number 2 with no view at all and things were not quite right, there was a left over bar of soap from the previous guests left... More

Visited on Friday night, and the restaurant was very busy (a good sign) but the waiting staff suggested a drink in the bar and a table would be ready in a while. We had a drink, then the table was ready. In our party we have a 17 month child who likes to walk about and greet everyone. The waiting... More

We stayed for bed and breakfast. The staff are very nice and helpful. What you see is what you get. We chose not to eat our dinner there, the menu had no seafood we could see (despite being on Arran!). Breakfast confirmed our guess, it was fine but nothing special just typical catering type food. Its a great base to... More

We booked a triple room & got an apartment! Reasonably priced at £50 pp including breakfast. The apartment was very practical but not particularly luxurious. Good wifi, and a nice breakfast with view of Holy Isle.

Firstly, some of the reviewed of this hotel have been, quite frankly, ridiculous. Moaners will always be moaners - no table for dinner but we didn't book! Street lights on, thin curtains, poor finishes to skirting boards, no razed socket or mirror light - you haven't booked the Ritz so put things into perspective before you moan. This was a... More

Our booking was for a superior double room R/3 facing the sea and paid for one night GBP110.00. The reception area is non-existant causing confusion on arrival and it has no parking facilities. The street light and the spotlight shining into the room were not conducive to sleep as was the noise of the patrons directly below the windows of... More

We arrived with the hotel being quiet, poor atmosphere with a few customers complaining. After ordering the food did arrive quickly but was of average quality, staff forgot requests of sauces and you could hear the younger chiefs talking in the kitchen which didn't come across very professional or relaxing. However dessert was good, although the waitress forgot sauce request... More

Dear Guest, please let me apologise if your were not happy with the service that you received here. I have spoken to kitchen staff and asked them to keep it down, they do enjoy their work sometimes a little too loudly. We always training younger members of new staff and unfortunately they don't always get it right, we will endeavour... More
