“lovely visit”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

We did not actually stay here, we were in a rented cottage nearby. We used the pool every day of our holiday nearly, the kids loved the children's pool and it was never too busy. Lunch after swimming was always popular with the kids with a good menu selection and helpful staff. It is a great family destination as nothing is any problem, there are colouring pages with the kids menu and also toys to play with. The food is good and the staff very pleasant. The views out of the front windows are wonderful, we saw seals and (I think) a basking shark fin!

Great location in a small village on the sea front. Walked into our room to find a 4 four poster bed! The view. Well all I can say is fabulous! Straight out to sea with a large window where we could watch the sunset. The room was clean & very well presented as was the bathroom (although the shower curtain wasn't long enough going into the bath but, hey, minor urk!) The breakfast was buffer style. Nothing to get excited about but good non the less. The restaurant had a good menu with daily specials. Venison, haggis bonbons, to name a few. Lovely friendly staff. Would definitely stay again.

Just back from 2 idyllic nights at your hotel. Arran was unbeleivably beautiful and of course the favourable weather just made it perfect. All staff at Kinloch Hotel were helpful and pleasant. Hotel very clean and food fabulous. We ate in the bar both nights and asked for cheese and biscuits between us to take to our room for later. This was no trouble and we had a beautifully presented tray to take to room whch was more than enough to share. Only downside was creaky floor in corrider outside room 51 and very bouncy and ?? heavy children who galloped up and down stairs which went over top of our room. Sometimes even took cover as was sure ceiling would cme down!! A little over enthusiasm due to sun shine and school hoildays I think. Room also looked out onto a porch area at back door to car park which meant it was a little dark. However, we spent little time in room due to weather and scenery. Up side of room 51 .. it is right next to pool so you can just pop straight into your own shower. Will definately be back. Well done Kinloch

Room Tip: room 51 has porer outlook and noisy stairs over top

We stayed here for a wedding. Room was very comfortable and clean. Breakfast was great and the meal for the wedding was delicious. The staff were friendly and helpfull. We used the swimming pool and sauna, both were fine. The views and the surrounding area are stunning.

Spent two nights here in June and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Perfect for a quiet getaway, with some lovely walks nearby. Had evening dinner in the restaurant and was pleasantly surprised at the excellent quality of food and service. (don't often do Hotel food) All members of staff were found to be friendly and helpful. Breakfast had a large selection to choose from with an emphasis on quality produce. Rooms are comfortable and clean although slightly dated. Should we return to Arran we would have no hesitation in staying here again.

Great location on the quieter side of Arran. Our room was comfortable enough, with a small tv. It was like an oven in the afternoon as it faced west (and we actually had sun !) but opening the windows took care of that at night. Some night time noise when external guests left the hotel restaurant or bar. Also some noise from a crying baby in the room next door. No problems for sound sleepers, but irritating for light sleepers.

Dinner in the restaurant was fine - a step above pub food. However, the staff were fantastic - friendly and eager to please. Do try the Arran Dairy icecream. Fabulous.....! Breakfast wasn't quite so exciting, although amazing croissants.

This is a well run, family hotel and more than adequate for a couple of nights away. The staff are very friendly and helpful - no exceptions noted !

From the moment we arrived at the Kinloch Hotel it was smiles all the time. The friendly ladies at reception, who were welcoming and very helpful. The room overlooking the water, with big fluffy towel in the bathroom.
In the evening we had dinner in the dinning room, what a lovely meal with generous portions.
Fantastic hotel. We will be back.
