With its rustic-chic style, The Douglas Bistro has a refreshing simplicity but a serious intent.The cuisine is honest and straightforward in style, bold and hearty in flavour. No fussy preparation or pretentious artistry, just thoughtful and skillful use of good quality produce. The menus are seasonally driven and make use of home-grown or locally-sourced ingredients, with a contemporary twist on flavoursome classics.

Very disappointing

Popped in for a quick bowl of soup before catching the ferry home and it was awful we should of waited to have something on the ferry. The service was average, you order at the bar so not any interaction at all and the soup we had was awful and over priced. Disappointed that this was the last place... read more

Friendly and efficient staff serving (mostly) locally produced food. An imaginative menu with plenty choice and super tastes. The surroundings are very pleasant. All in all, an extremely relaxing and enjoyable experience

My partner and I went for our anniversary and fell in love with the place. The hotel is beautifully decorated. The rooms are a really generous size and they had very high quality linen and furniture. The bathrooms were beautiful and the room was immaculate. The hotel is certainly unique and has its own charm. We were also very impressed... More

The Douglas is our usual destination on the island but this time we just popped in for a coffee and a beer before getting the ferry home after a couple of days in the Kildonan Hotel. This is a lovely place to while away a few hours with great views and a peaceful environment. Can't wait for our next stay... More

We stumbled across this lovely friendly hotel whilst out for a walk.....the manager and his son were the greatest of hosts..although we were not staying here that didn't seem to matter to them...They made us feel just like a guest of the hotel there was a buffet which they said we could use and please try it as it is...

Spent the afternoon here one day and then returned the next for a quick lunch. Friendly atmosphere. Reasonable prices. Food was very good. On the 2nd day we had limited time as we had to catch the ferry - we told the staff that we were in a rush and the food was served very quickly so we had plenty... More
