Burgers were great, especially the beef and goats cheese! Chips came in a little mini fryer basket with mock newspaper which my mum found cute.... More

We had a wonderful family meal at the Douglas hotel yesterday at the end of a daytrip to Arran. A perfect place to arrive at 5pm and watch the sunset before catching the 7ock ferry. One of the very few meals out where you get completely empty plates from everyone including the children. The hotel also take the tastecard which... More

Had a great walk on Arran today finished off with a bottle of Arran Blonde. But £4.75 is really taking the mickey! Not even draught and the brewery is just up the road. Sorry won't be back and will be telling other walkers to avoid. Previously we've also found the hotel closed completely for weddings on Saturdays. Really not very... More

Dear Steve M, This is usual pricing for a bottle of craft beer. It is local, but goes off Arran to be bottled, so we buy it from the mainland. Please check around and you will find this is a typical price... More

We visited the Douglas for a bar lunch during a visit to the island. It was not a good experience. We ordered roast beef sandwiches and cheese and tomato. The bar was relatively quiet and two young lads were serving. They were very friendly but woefully under trained. Our table badly needed cleaned but no attempt was made to do... More
