Was in Arran on busineess and booked here late Friday night. I found the public areas of the hotel a bit tired looking but was pleasantly surprised by the rooms: large, very modern, clean with fantastic views over the water. Staff were very friendly. Lounge bar well stocked with the usually beers and malts.

We arrived on Arran late in the day, w/o a reservation. We stumbled upon The Kinloch hotel hoping to find at least one room for the three of us. The staff could not have been more helpful, friendly. We were shown a room as well as a self catering suite, at very good prices. We took the suite, which faced the water and was very roomy! Dinner in the bar was delicious (especially their special salad w/ pine nuts, currants....). The following day, we were allowed to use the laundry facilities before departing and were served complementary coffee in the lounge. I can't wait to go back!

The staff were friendly and very helpful. The food, especially meat and fish was excellent. But broccoli, carrots and turnip 5 days running got very tedious. The young girl on reception was outstanding in her professionalism both on booking and during our stay. (we stay at many hotels and she stood out) She deserves to get poached.The downside was the perpetual throb from the pool, air conditioning. It needs soundproofing with a vengence or turning off at night! It infiltrated everywhere and was so bad at night, throbbing through the pillows and coming through the shut double glazed windows. We got moved to the furthest corner of the hotel where it was muted.

The Isle of Arran is beautiful. A real get away from the mainland hustle & bustle but not so isolated that you feel stuck. The north of the island is mountainous, good for walkers & has a whisky distillery that you can visit & see round. The Southern part is more populated with the high school, hospital & general shopping opportunities. Blackwaterfoot is on the West side of the island, quieter than the East but really handy for getting around. If you feel adventurous you could cycle round the island (about 50 miles) or from one side to the other (about 10 miles). This island is great for golfers, there's a course in just about every village! The Kinloch Hotel at Blackwaterfoot is great. If you're going to be there longer than a few days, try the self contained suites on the top floor of the hotel. You get a kitchen, sitting room, 2 bathrooms and can sleep up to 6 people. You still get to use all the hotel facilities such as the pool, restaurant and bar, but you get a bit more freedom if you just want to laze around & make a sandwich! The hotel is family run and the staff are all so helpful & friendly. The view from the rooms and all public areas is one of my all time favourites - over the sea to the Mull of Kintyre. On a clear day you might get a shimmery glimpse of Ireland. Best times for this view are at sunset (sky all pink & lilac over the hills) or when the sun is shining really brightly (sparkly sea!). Don't miss the quad bikes up the road for a bit of mad fun or 'Arran Aromatics' where you can buy all their gorgeous bath products at factory prices - prepare to leave with several shopping bags! I try to visit Arran once a year. I just love it!
