had dinner here after a trip on The Waverley. It was a beautiful day so we sat out on the terrace. We all had the fish and it was one of the best fish dishes i've had. The service was very good and the young lads did a great job.

We took our six Americans here for lunch and we were all very happy with the food and service for 8 people all to be served at the one time - well done staff. Fabulous for a drink later on sitting there watching and waiting for the ferry to come in and then stepping across the street to board the... More

The Douglas hotel is situated on the front at Brodick. We had an evening meal here and the food was good with great service and nice surroundings. There is also an area for sitting outside which is lovely on a sunny day. An ideal place for a cuppa and a cake.

Had a drink and meal while waiting for ferry back to mainland. Three of us all had the fish which was presented well and a good size. The toilets are clean and fresh but are some distance from the bar being downstairs and along a passage.

Had lunch here. Not an extensive menu but the food was very good. Fabulous views over to the Scottish mainland. Staff very pleasant. The hotel itself has been refurbished to a good standard.

I've already posted this review on the Hotel site, but think it's worth repeating on the Bistro site. We booked a table for four of us on the first Saturday in March and had an excellent meal. One of our party follows a Vegan diet and the knowledge and attention to detail of all the staff in providing a balanced... More

We normally eat in the bar at the hotel at least once during a trip to the island as it has a nice atmosphere, great views and excellent food. This time was no exception, we tried the seafood sharing platter for the first time and would highly recommend it.....good selection of items and just enough for a light meal for... More

I usually end my Arran trip here. It is 5 minutes away from the ferry terminal, and the food is pretty good. And if the weather is nice, you can eat outside.

Had lunch here while on the island on business and had praised it before to my partner. The staff didn't acknowledge we were there, only one member of staff serving and he took a long time to serve the people before us. When I asked about lighter options he pointed to the wall a smaller than A4 size menu which... More

Vistied Douglas Hotel for diner whilst on holiday and to say I was extremely disppointed would have to be an understatement. When we initially booked the table we were told there was no availability between 7pm and 8pm, so we settled for a table at 6.30pm. When we arrived we wwre met by a young lady who promptly told us...
