The hotel is nicely located in front of the seashore and in a nice quaint building. The rooms are a bit small and old fashioned (old electric heater and very old kettle) and the only common areas are the bar and the dining room, and in my room one could hear a very loud noise when the kitchen ventilator was...

Having emailed and rang round John from the Burlington emailed to say he had a double room available. When we tried to book the ferry to Arran we found that only the late sailing was available and contacted John... More

Really fine and comfortable guest house with lovely hosts who made us feel like welcome guests. Top floor room was small but perfect in every way - great view from window and a window seat to help enjoy it. Breakfast was great, set us up for the day. Highly recommended.

Having arrived on Arran with CalMac's £99 Car and four people, 5 Ferries deal it was a nice surprise to have such a clean well organised hotel. The owners were friendly and soon had us in our room. Ours was at the top of the building but it was huge and well laid out. A huge bed, ultra clean toilet... More

As stated elsewhere on these pages, John and Doreen are wonderful hosts and the Burlington offers delightful accommodation at a reasonable price. Tea and coffee making facilities are provided in the room (including biscuits) and it was a great pleasure to take in the view over Whiting Bay whilst enjoying our cup of tea. The room and ensuite bathroom are... More

Perfect location overlooking the beach, with regular wildlife events visible from the window, including gannets diving, porpoises passing and a dozen swans. The hosts know everything about where to go on the island to see various birds and animals, and also good advice on where to eat. The room was comfortable and spacious, breakfast wholesome and good quality. Wi-Fi was... More
