What a place. Overlooking Whiting bay with excellent facilities and a warm welcome. Nice touches such as cakes given each day made on site and a short story of Arran left on your pillow each night. Truly nice touches. The views are to die for and will go back.

I am very late writing this review, purely because I am rubbish at doing anything when it should be done! However, this is a place so worthy of an excellent review I felt I had to still write it! Adele and Peter are the most amazing hosts, the hotel and grounds are gorgeous and all the little touches just made... More

An excellent 2 night stay. Adele and Peter were extremely welcoming and helpful and even arranged the most glorious weather! We were very comfortable and really enjoyed beautiful breakfasts in the gracious dining room and what a lovely surprise the home baked treats were for us to enjoy later in the day! Would encourage others to try and stay longer... More

Have just spent a very enjoyable and comfortable three nights at the Royal Arran. Adele and Peter go out of their way to make you welcome and at ease and treat their guests as they themselves would like to be treated. On arrival Adele came out to the car park to greet us and followed this up with a welcome... More

We stayed for three days 17th to 20th August. This is quite simply the best b and b we've ever stayed in. The attention to detail was fantastic and Adele made us feel incredibly welcome. She thought of everything and as a seasoned traveller I can quite honestly say that I have never experienced better hospitality. The evening ' turn... More

Wow, cannot praise this place enough. Adele our host was an amazing lady, we had a lovely warm welcome with afternoon tea in our private patio garden (incredible cupcakes by the way!) which was such a nice gesture. The list goes on and on of the lovely things she did for us, bedtime stories on our pillows in the evening,... More

After staying in a Swiss 5-star-hotel very recently, the Royal Arran hotel definitely deserves more than 5! Adele and Peter really care for the details and go that extra mile, that makes you feel like a VIP. From a superb breakfast with a daily "treat" from the kitchen for the day, the priceless tips about walks and sights and local... More

On our arrival Adele, on taking us to our room, (we had booked a standard) said that she had put us in the wonderful four... More
