“Perfect escape from the world!!”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

We had never been to Arran or Auchrannie before but will definately be back. From the moment we got on the ferry, the feeling of leaving the world behind and sailing off into the setting sun was the perfect start to a perfect stay. On arriving at the House Hotel the warm welcome by the genuinely friendly, helpful staff in the reception area with the open fire and the comfy sofas was a great start which was going to get even better when we got to our lovely room. Very tastefully decorated, comfortable and spotlessly clean. We ate in both Brambles and Cruize restaurants. Again the staff couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. The food was excellent in both restaurants. The leisure facilities were very good. Also had a lovely massage!! We bought a great wee book 40 favourite walks on Arran which was a great buy. We really enjoyed travelling round the island and going on some of these walks. Fantastic walking along deserted beaches, watching the seals watching us, exploring the caves etc. Felt like we 20 years younger. This was a perfect couples break but the hotel and island would be a great place to bring a family. We will definately go back. I would highly recommend Auchrannie but as they say at Auchrannie you might become addicted!! We certainly are.

Had stayed at Auchrannie 30 years previous and wanted to take a trip down memory lane. Mum and i stayed in the Country House Hotel for 2 nights and were both amazed by the place. It was even better than we had remembered & the staff were so welcoming and friendly. Our only disappointment was not booking a longer trip. Like the brochures say "Beware Auchrannie is addictive" - how true!!! We are already planning our next trip there this year and are considering a lodge for next year.

Always welcoming at any time of year. Great variety of activities on offer so this is a great destination even in the depths of winter.
Rooms are good but heating in the old part of the building is a bit inadequate. The open fires in the public rooms create a cosy atmosphere.
Food is excellent with a winter choice of two restaurants (3 in the summer). Staff are very friendly and efficient. We'll be back.

Room Tip: Rooms in the old part of the house are good but can be chilly in the winter. Ask for an extra heater...

I stayed here with my fiance, my sister and her partner and my parents from 18th to 20th January. We paid for the ferry inclusive package which included return ferry journeys, B&B as well as £20 per person per day towards dinner. Everyone agreed it was great value for money and we would not hesitate to return.

We stayed in the house hotel and received a warm welcome upon checking in together with information about the facilities, opening times and the surrounding area. We were also given a leaflet showing the discounts we could obtain at various places on Arran as a result of showing our hotel charge card.

We were all staying in the main house on the second floor and were shown to our room as it was a bit of a maze. However, even if we hadn't had assistance, the corridors were well signposted. The rooms were gorgeous. Large and very comfortable. Very smartly decorated and furnished and the bathrooms were stunning! Very modern and funky! We spent the afternoon in the Brambles bar sitting at the roaring fire and enjoying a lovely lunch and a few drinks. We were served by the barman who I'm sure was called Wynn (although not sure of the spelling). He was so incredibly friendly not just that day but throughout our stay. My sister and I later made use of the leisure club within our hotel which had limited opening hours (I think due to the time of year which was probably off peak). The pool was great for swimming and we really enjoyed the sauna and chatting to the other guests in there. The only disappointment was the lack of a jacuzzi to sit and gossip in! There was a turbo pool but it was just the same temperature as the pool and not quite as bubbly or hot as a jacuzzi.

We had dinner in Cruize that night which was excellent and some of us easily had 3 courses of delicious food within our daily allowance. The staff were again super friendly, especially the manageress who arranged for a bottle of wine from the Brambles wine list to be brought over even though it is not normally served in Cruize. We had breakfast in Cruize both mornings and there was plenty of choice and everything was really tasty. Our parents had breakfast in Brambles the first day as they were up and about early and preferred it there as the hot food was cooked to order. However, I had no complaints with the cooked breakfasts in Cruize. It is also nice to see a place that serves breakfast at the weekend until 11am. Means you can enjoy a long lie or use the facilities to work up an appetite first.

The following day, after a walk around Broddick (you must visit the cheese shop and the chocolate shop!) we used the leisure club facilities in the spa hotel which was a couple of minutes walk across the car park. The pool there was even better than in the house. Again no jacuzzi and the sauna was out of action but the steam room was working and the reception staff apologised about the sauna. They were also painting the corridors that day even though the place looked brand new - they obviously want to keep up high standards. My fiance and i later used the sports hall to play badminton and when we got fed up with that we were allowed to keep our time slot to shoot some hoops on the basketball court!

We had dinner in Brambles that night which was probably even better than Cruize (and that's saying something!). It is a seafood restaurant and I'm not keen on seafood but there were plenty other options. It is a bit more expensive than Cruize but well worth paying extra for. Everyone raved about their food and I only wish there was a Brambles where I live! Again Wynn was working that night and we had fun joking with him. Our waitress was also a lovely Hungarian girl who was so bubbly and friendly and had us in stitches. Every member of staff we met during our stay went out of their way to help and nothing was too much bother but a special shout out has to go to the aforementioned staff in Brambles as well as the manageress in Cruize and the waiter from New Zealand who was working on the Friday night there.

I honestly could not recommend this place highly enough. It is only 50 minutes from Ardrossan on the ferry and less than a five minute drive once you get off. The surrounding area is stunning (Goatfell looked particularly impressive covered in snow) and it is truly a place where you can do as little or as much as you like.

I can't wait to go back!

Had a one night stay in the Hotel. Picked up from the mainland ferry by the pre-arranged Hotel transport which was just as well because it was not situated where I thought it was!

Greeted by a friendly male receptionist, to whom all of my questions presented no problem, and escorted to my room. (Have not had this experience for a long time). Room well appointed and clean.

Next morning, absolutely stunning view from my room (11) and a good breakfast, from a refreshingly different menu - not just the usual breakfast fare - in the Brambles bistro. Waitress here was also exceptionally friendly.

Check out was smart and efficient with an emphasis placed on 'paperless' transaction - which didn't work to the obvious dismay of the receptionist. Full marks for thw effort though.

Didn't try any of the facilities but noticed there was a well attended aquarobics class ongoing in the swimming pool and everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves there. Fantastic Country House feeling and smell about the place. Will definitely go back and stay longer

We own a couple of weeks at the timeshare holiday lodges (which are excellent) but recently stayed at the country house hotel for a short visit.
Auchrannie is a very comprehensive resort location with just about every facility you could want. There are holiday lodges, a country house hotel and a spa hotel and the facilities include two swimming pools, a sports hall, children's play barn, small shop and three restaurants. Charges may apply depending on the package you book so check the details. All the facilities are very clean and all the staff I have encountered have been friendly and helpful.
Arran is a lovely island with great scenery and lots of outdoor activities - if the weather is good you'll want to go out and explore but if not you can easily spend all your time at Auchrannie.

We stayed for two nights and would have liked to stay longer. The hotel's catch -phrase, "Auchrannie is addictive" is very apt. Everywhere was clean, the staff first class and a seamless service at the restaurant, both at breakfast and dinner. We stayed in the resort building and found it very quiet and peacefull. The views from the rooms are of course wonderful.
The pool and fitness centre were great.
