They have yogurts, cake, cereals, and toast as the cold area. But on the menu they have kippers and salmon with any egg. Now I had... More

We had two nights at Arran Lodge.Excellent accommodation with a well furnished room with a good shower,dressing gowns and also soft drinks in the fridge.Probably the best breakfast selection we have ever had in a B&B with 8 different types of fruit plus the usual breakfast cereals and a cooked english breakfast along with kippers or salmon.

I am sorry that you felt the need to leave this review, but I do feel it is very unreasonable.
