Stumbled across this hotel by accident. Having phoned about 40 places without success, I misdialled another number and got a Kildonan local who recommended this (Cheers Mr Nick Ash).

The rooms are lovely, the bathrooms fantastic (you've got to love those tiles), and the location is one of the few on the island that allows you to walk straight out of the hotel and onto the shore - perfect for seal watching.

The only problem is that by the time you've taken your seat in the restaurant with a view over Pladda and Ailsa Craig you've forgotten that you've paid only half as much as other so called luxury hotels and you expect the food to be outstanding. It isn't, it's just very good although this may be down to me not being a fish person.

All in all, I'd go back and I'd recommend anyone touring the south of Arran to try it.

Enjoy!

Superb views, excellent food and fantastic rooms. For those who want a friendly atmosphere in wonderful surroundings, look no further. Don't tell anyone though as we don't want it to get too busy! Idylic.

Kildonan Hotel ,Isle of Arran, Scotland. The hotel is situated very close to the shore, where seals and a numerous variation of wildlife can be spotted. There is an ongoing refurbishment programme being carried out and the rooms that are finished are fitted out to a very high standard. The food is very good, with some unusual menus. For anyone looking for a tranquil and relaxing break then this hotel hits the spot.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Unwind and forget your troubles at our small, family run hotel. Built in the 17th Century, it is one of the 7th oldest licensed Inns in Scotland and historically a destination that families have aspired to visit for well over 100 years. Perched on the southern-most tip of Arran with panoramic views to die for, the hotel is located right on the seafront, the beach literally stone's throw away. Overlooking the Firth of Clyde we are right in the middle of a unique eco-system with a plethora of wildlife. We have seals basking daily on the rock jetties off-shore, otters feeding and playing on the rocks and gannets diving non-stop through the day. We are also fortunate to have occasional basking sharks and dolphins visiting in the summer months and an array of birds-of-prey including eagles, peregrines, buzzards and more... Pladda Island sits directly across the sound with its recognisable lighthouse and ever changing silhouette playing host to a large colony of seagulls and gannets. And of course the famous Ailsa Craig, 'Paddy's Milestone', a bird sanctuary now but is renowned for its granite which is still used for curling stones today. The interior is fully refurbished, still maintaining some the quaint characteristics of old, while the tasteful addition of extended bistro and lounge area with floor to ceiling windows allow residents and diners to gaze for miles over a cup of tea, breakfast or an evening meal. ... more   less
