Had a terrific few days at this hotel. It was a broken down old building and a lot of money has been spent on refurbishment.

They have a bistro restaurant which serve beautiful meals at a very reasonable price and the bar prices are not expensive either.

I will certainly be coming back here, I hope in the autumn.

Room Tip: ask for room facing sea

Due to the power cut in March, we could n't stay in our holiday home in Corrie.
Luckily there was a executive double room available at the Douglas Hotel.
What a result!
The staff were great, the hotel very clean and very modern having been fitted out very recently.
The Bistro and bar food is excellent.
Easy parking.
Our 8 week old child was very welcome!

Room Tip: We had room 208 very quiet away from other guests, no view, spot on! No POOL or FITNESS CENTRE that...

First ever trip to Arran and we chose the Douglas Hotel from internet reviews. Not disappointed as the hotel was superb and the staff, rooms, dining and bar were excellent. We were all made to feel welcome and staff made us feel at home. Excellent choice for discerning travellers.

Room Tip: Suite with rooftop balcony (202) was superb...overlooking Brodick bay and the mountains.

We had the Mid-fortune of booking our 2 night stay the weekend of terrible weather the worst ever, snow, blizzards and worse of all no electricity! Our ferry was delayed 3hrs waiting for emergency generators to be loaded onboard to take to Arran. We arrived at The Douglas Hotel at 5pm, they were surprised to see us, there was no electricity or water at the Hotel, However the Hotel staff pulled out all the stops, torches, candles, snacks at the Bar until at last the electricity was returned on at 11.20! We booked room 103 the large suite at the front of the Hotel, it was a lovely room we would have loved to look out the 3 large bay windows to much better weather but such is life, the Hotel made up for lost time the next morning with a lovely cooked breakfast, we started to warm up by then, our evening meal in tha Bistro was excellent. So if you plan to go over to Arran in better climate then we would highly recommend The Douglas Hotel & room 103.

The location could not be better, the view over the bay is great. Because of the views we decided to pay extra and get an executive room with a view, however the view was of the carpark and if you cricked your neck and stood right up against the window you could see the ferry terminal. Not what I expected or paid for.

My partner and I each had a 2 course meal there with 2 glasses of wine, tea and coffee which came to approximately £60. This was an excellent price as the food (fish & steak) was superb and the waiting staff were polite and attentive.

The restaurant feels modern and comfortable with a good choice on both the drinks & food menus. I highly the recommend the Douglas as an eatery. We ate at a highly recommended resort on the Isle and The Douglas far outweighed that restaurant in standard of food and quality of service.

Partner and I stayed first weekend in March with itison deal. First time staying on Arran and was well impressed....the warm spring weather helped. The hotel is kitted out to a very high standard and I couldn't find anything to fault. Had a side facing room and would have preferred a front room but really can't complain. All the staff are friendly and helpfull....thanks to the girl in the bar ushering us into the sideroom to get peace to watch the St Mirren game....pity she couldn't have fixed the score!! By the time our friends enquired it was sold out for the weekend and they had to stay elsewhere but they were equally impressed and we will all definitely be back soon. Breakfast was top notch and while we didn't eat here at night, we will make a point of next time. I will recommend this hotel to anyone who will listen.
