“Very clean and well organised.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013 via mobile

Spotlessly clean room, tasty breakfast, friendly service (though clearly biased towards golfers!) slightly weedy shower and very thin walls. The guest fridge is a good idea and the tea in the rooms was delicious - Yorkshire tea - excellent choice.

The Lilybank Guest House in Lamlash is a lovely place to stay while on the Isle of Arran. Right across from Lamlash Bay, our room had a great view out to the bay and the Holy Island. So enjoyable to sit at the window, sipping Lochranza Single Malt, and nibbling Arran Cheese. Colin and June are efficient and gracious hosts who serve a grand breakfast. We wanted to stay four nights, but they only had three available, so they helped us get good accommodation next door for our last night. With all of Isle of Arran so easy to get to, Lilybank makes an excellent choice for any visit to the island.

Room Tip: Opt for the rooms with a view even if the tariff is a little higher.

Lilybank is in a lovely position in Lamlash. They supply very thoughtful guest facilities such as a guest living room and a fridge for everyone to share. However, I have to say I thought my room was looking a little tired, although originally very prettily decorated. I found Colin most helpful and welcoming, however I too found the breakfast service well, a little terse. I do a great deal of solo travel, but I have to say both breakfast experiences didn't rank highly in terms of being made to feel welcome, when it appeared a great deal more effort was being made with other guests who were in pairs. This didn't rest well with me considering I'd been charged extra for single occupancy. I rarely feel uncomfortable in my single state, but unfortunately this time I felt distinctly 'spare.'

Spotlessly clean rooms with spectacular views of the Holy Island and comfy chairs. Very reasonable rates include a huge delicious breakfast with lot of choices. We enjoyed eggs and salmon and kippers. Guests facilities include a communal fridge to chill out your packed lunches or beers from the local brewery. Colin and June are excellent hosts and we will stay at Lilybank again next time we visit Arran.

After a bad experience on Kintyre it was so lovely to come to Lilybank. We booked the room for those with limited mobility and it really lived up to its description. My disabled friend found it the easiest shower to use that we have ever found in a guest house. The food was excellent and June and Colin were prepared to do all they could to make our stay pleasant. We hope we may go back one day and will recommend this guest house to all our friends.

Room Tip: Rooms 6 and 7 are on the ground floor. If you have a mobility problem room 7 is great

I booked two rooms at Lilybank for my parents and my brother and his girlfriend. It was just for two nights as they were attending my wedding at Lamlash. They could not praise it enough, Colin and June are fantastic hosts and could not do enough for them. It really put my mind at rest that they were somewhere clean, comfortable and friendly. The breakfasts were fantastic and views from their ensuite rooms were spectacular. I would not hesitate to book here again, maybe for myself next time! Thank you Colin and June!!
