“Wedding Party - simply outstanding”
Reviewed June 22, 2014

Had a wedding event at the Douglas, with heaps of Scottishness, the whole three days was simply brilliant, the staff were polite and welcoming, the food was presented well and delicious and the quality of the rooms was exceptional, I couldn't recommend more.

What a wonderful place - a completely revamped Victorian hotel, elegantly decorated in contemporary style and every last detail taken care of. Their biggest asset however is their staff - especially in the Bistro - young, local, engaging and helpful, couldn't do enough for us. I felt very lucky to be able to stay here a couple of nights.

Room Tip: 001 was quiet and private, and right beside a small lounge area which was perfect for a gathering se...

I would highly recommend The Douglas Hotel in Arran. The hotel is tastefully furnished. Our room was very comfortable with ensuite bathroom. The staff were welcoming and efficient in answering any enquiries. The Bistro is a lovely place for having an evening meal. The menu is varied and the food cooked and presented was superb. The Bistro Staff were extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble for them.

The hotel is sited in a lovely location with sea views and Goat Fell. I would hope to stay again at The Douglas Hotel on my next visit to Arrang

What an amazing hotel and Restaurant, we stayed in suite 103 with large bay windows overlooking the harbour & in reality we didn't want to leave at the end of our stay. The suite was one of the best I've stayed in, very luxurious and homely but with a touch of classic modern chic.

Arriving on a Friday we checked in then had a lovely lunch and drinks in the bar, by then we knew the food was gorgeous and couldn't wait until dinner that evening.

Dinner as expected was nothing short of amazing, highlift of the meal was the chateaubriand in which we have never tasted meat like it, absolutely stunning.

After an excellent sleep wrapped up in a king size bed overlooking the view of the harbour at sunrise, breakfast again was faultless, the range of food available was excellent and delicious followed by a cooked breakfast of your choice.....safe to say I din't need lunch that day.

Great experience, great hotel, great location, great staff, great food.....amazing suite! Will be back soon holefully!

Room Tip: Suite 103 has got to be one of the most luxurious rooms with a view to absolutely die for! The bathr...

As part of our five night tour of Southern Scotland, we stayed for one night on Arran at the Douglas Hotel and how pleased we were to have chosen this lovely hotel. It is in the perfect position right opposite the ferry terminal, but don't think that means it is in a grotty part of town because nowhere on Arran is grotty! Indeed, it was fascinating to look out of our bedroom window and see the magnificent view, complete with ferry approaching the island. Internally, the hotel is very modern and beautifully appointed. Both our bedroom and bathroom were tastefully decorated and extremely comfortable, with everything you need for an enjoyable stay. Dinner in the restaurant was excellent as was breakfast and all the staff were friendly and helpful. We would most definitely recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the front for the glorious views.

We decided to have a bar lunch here before getting the ferry after a most enjoyable week on this beautiful island. We walked in to reception and received a really warm welcome from the receptionist. We said we would like to have lunch and she immediately took us through to the bar, handed us a menu and explained that we could order drinks and food from the bar. First impressions are so important when entering a hotel and this was a first class welcome. The barman who took our order and the waiter who brought our excellent meal continued to make us feel welcome and gave the impression that our custom was valued. We had the set menu which was excellent value with a good choice of dishes. The dishes were nicely presented. All in all this was a really nice finish to our holiday.
We have not stayed at this hotel as we were self catering elsewhere on the island but we would like to return to the hotel to spend a few nights at a later date and will certainly return for a meal.
The hotel has recently been renovated and has stunning views across Brodick Bay.
