We booked in as B&B the breakfast was fantastic, Staff throughout the stay could not have been more caring and helpful. A very friendly welcoming bar, attached to the hotel with a brilliant trio band, who not only played and sang... More

Stayed here with an Itison voucher. Great value and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Our upstairs suite had the most beautiful 180 degree views of beach and sea and we loved sitting looking out, watching the sun set. The staff were pleasant, the room was comfortable and the food was fine. Tasty bar food in the evening in the dining room, and... More

We were hungry after our arrival so we ventured into the bar, where there was live music playing (sunday afternoon) The group were fantastic - the... More

This was a delightful location for a short break, especially at New Year. The ceildh on h o Hannah leading g up to the Bells and then the firework display on the beach was just the ideal way to bring in a new year.

We stayed at the hotel over New Years. This was our second stay, having last been there in 2008. The hotel has a stunning location right on the beach with fantastic views from the restaurant (great place for breakfast), the bar and also our room. We had a deluxe suite which had floor to ceiling glass wall with a balcony... More

Will start with the positives about the Kildonan Hotel. It is in a lovely location on Arran, right by the beach and we had great views from our room which was very comfortable. We booked a Hogmanay package at the hotel and as we have tried Hogmanay packages in a number of other hotels in various parts of Scotland, I... More

The rooms were warm and comfortable, although the views of the stunning seascape weren’t the best as those rooms had already been taken. The food was good and wholesome and the staff were attentive and efficient. Hogmanay was a three-course meal followed by a lively ceilidh and an impressive firework display at midnight. The atmosphere throughout our stay was relaxed... More
