By far the best food we'd had on our two week tour of the inner hebrides. Very friendly and helpful staff and a good menu. Also very helpful for my wife who needed Gluten Free options as a coeliac. Be sure to book it gets busy.

This is a lovely small hotel. The room we had was described as a small double and it was. However the bed was comfortable, the room was lovely and clean and Arran Aromatic products were in abundance in the en suite facility. We would definitely stay again, but next time in a larger room. We spent three very pleasant days... More

We had beef sandwiches and chips - which were the best I had tasted on our short break to the Isle of Arran! The staff were friendly and helpful. We ate outside as we had our dog with us but it was a fine day so not a problem.

My husband and I enjoyed a 3 night stay at this beautifully appointed small hotel. It is situated right on the shore which is definitely a bonus as strolling along the seashore is a must. The staff were warm, welcoming and helpful throughout our stay. I liked the fact that there were items that we could borrow from the front... More

We had 3 nights at the Glenisle Hotel and really enjoyed it. We ate in every night and the food was delicious, a good menu plus excellent specials. My husband's venison looked and tasted amazing! Our room was very comfortable with all amenities. Above all we loved the location of the hotel, right on the seafront with great views and... More

Only stayed one night but had a lovely room, very clean. Staff all very friendly and excellent food. Quiet location with garden at side for sitting. Lovely views. Not the cheapest, but you get what you pay for.

We had been told about the Glenisle by a couple at breakfast at our Brodick B&B and they were right--worth the drive for a fine meal. We shared a roast beef sandwich at lunch and an Arran sampler, very similar to a Ploughman's plate, at dinner and both were very good. My wife also had the soup of the day... More

My partner and I visited this hotel 5th & 6th July. Staff all very friendly and food was to an excellent standard. First visited this hotel 17 years ago and to our surprise we were given the same room, which had an uninterrupted view of the bay. Rooms have recently been refurbished. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a peaceful... More
