“Very nice surprise”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

Excellent stay at the Douglas Hotel. Great bedding, superb views of the harbor, only potential issue was the gigantic size of our bathroom, which made it cold and somewhat unpleasant.
The hotel's restaurant, the Bistro, serves excellent food. We had dinner there very night in addition to breakfast and enjoyed all of our meals.
Service is uniformly friendly and professional.
Will definitely stay there on my next visit to the island.

I couldn't fault this hotel or the bistro. Rooms are lovely, bistro excellent, staff are well trained and helpful. What more could you ask for. We would definately recomend The Douglas and will hopefully stay again next year.

I went here from Irvine for the day on a business trip but was joined later by my partner and we stayed the night. The hotel was great, the room was lovely and the bed was very comfy. Didn't eat in the hotel in the evening but will next time after reading some of the other reviews. They have made a very good job of renovating the hotel and I would recommed a stay there to anyone safe in the knowledge that they would not be dissapointed. The staff were attentive without being overbearing, very friendly and helpful when asked about the facillites on the island.

Room Tip: ask for a room with a view of the sea

Stayed on a two night break at the beginning of October 2013. What a fantastic place to stay rooms great, food absolutely first class, staff could not be more helpful. we would like to give a special mention to Claire cornyn who was absolutely amazing. She was not a gushing person, which we absolutely hate, she listened to our requests and was extremely helpful during our stay, a very quiet and sincere person, who we have no doubt gets overlooked, because of her quiet attitude. I hope someone reads this and gives her the recognition which is her due. thank you Claire for giving us your time !

A short trip to Arran was made memorable by this hotel. Excellent staff, really good ambience, the most comfortable bed I have had in a hotel in the UK and some memorable meals. More than made up for the weather being less than the sunshine the BBC had forecast! Will be back to see it in the sun.

I recently spent a couple of nights on Arran at this wonderful hotel. Everything about the Douglas is excellent. The accommodation is first class, food is fantastic and the service is impeccable. The 'mid week break' offers great value for money. Just turn right onto the main road out of the ferry terminal and then first left into the hotel car park. What a find!!!
