We have just returned from another short break on Arran and tried this restored hotel for the first time. It has been very well restored and we enjoyed our stay very much. The staff were very friendly, our executive room was spacious and had a 'proper' bathroom with an excellent shower. The breakfast was excellent with a good choice and service was very good. As frequent visitors to Arran we will have no hesitation in visiting the hotel again. A welcome addition to the quality hotels on the island.

Room Tip: Have only tried executive twin room as a classic twin was not available

This hotel is superb! We've just returned from a long weekend and couldn't find a single fault with it. From reception to room to restaurant, everything about the Douglas oozes quality and perfection.

The staff were all extremely courteous and helpful, the food in the restaurant was to die for and the room was luxury personified. We had room 203 on the second floor, which had a spectacular sea view. The home made shortbread biscuits in the room were melt in the mouth good, while the robes just topped off the experience.

I can't finish this review without also mentioning the cocktails. The white Russians (with an Arran twist) were a bit too moreish for the morning after!

All in all an experience to not forget and we will definitely be back!

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view. You could sit and watch this view all day long.

Had a meal in the Douglas Hotel on Saturday night for a friends birthday - I can honestly say it couldn't be faulted. Lovely place without the 'stuffiness' that some restaurants have, great food and the service was really friendly and efficient (and all staff were super smart in their uniforms!). We finished off the night in the bar area listening to a young musician who was superb.
will def. return!

We spent two nights at the Douglas, and we had a lovely time. The room was immaculate, with bath robes laid our on our arrival. Home made shortbread, a spotless bathroom, and an immensely comfy bed made our stay very enjoyable. The hotel is beautifully decorated and the staff have created an environment where you feel fully at home. The included breakfast was also delicious, with several items freshly cooked for you in addition to the continental breakfast laid out. Our only (minor) grumble was that service in the bistro for dinner was a little surly – our reservation had been misplaced, and although we were seated instantly, we didn't feel overly welcome. Other than that, highly recommended!
