We booked in here for only 1 night of our tour of Scotland, and wished we could have stayed longer. We booked late so all that was available was a little room on the top floor. It worked fine for us, it was really rather cute ! En-suite shower room was great. There was a kettle provided along with tea,coffee,... More

The staff at the hotel really made our stay, they were friendly and informative and keen to help with an queries. We were given excellent advice to find... More

What a lovely little hotel to come to, right next to the sea. Very clean. Staff were very friendly and helpful (my shoes were put in the boiler room for drying out after a whole day of rain). Food excellent and not too pricey. We came to Arran on a motorbike tour (my first one) and it was worth it... More

Brilliant stay at the Glenisle- loved its situation overlooking Lamlash Bay- we were welcomed so warmly on arrival, it set the tone for our stay there. Lovely clean, airy and cosy bedroom overlooking the bay, decor around the hotel comfortably modern, and food exceeded our expectations - two delicious evening meals and breakfasts we wish we were still having -...

Just back from a short break in Arran and thoroughly recommend his beautiful hotel. Service was always first class with staff very polite and helpful. Breakfast and food in the bistro were first class and we look forward to another visit to the Glenisle!

I have stayed at this hotel twice - the first time in May 2013 when I stayed in the premier suite, and the second time in July 2014, when I stayed in one of the superior rooms. Both rooms were excellent, with comfortable beds and amazing views out into the bay and the Holy Isle. We also ate dinner in... More

It was probably the hottest day of the year and the attic bedroom was warmer that I or the hotel staff would like but there is not much you can do about that. We had an excellent evening meal sitting outside, luckily the midges did not come out to play until it was dark. A good selection of reasonably priced... More

The room had marvellous views to Holy Island and was huge with a double shower, large cast iron bath and very comfortable armchairs.We ate in the restaurant two nights and the food and service were superb. The breakfasts were excellent and it was hard... More
