“perfect in every way”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2012

A truly wonderful place to relax, impeccable warmth and hospitality with such attention to detail. Sitting in the sunshine listening to peacocks, cuckoos, finches and watching the tortoises was very special. The food was delicious and well-presented – though the heat meant we couldn’t do it justice – having lost our appetites from too much sun! Would love to come back and hope that many of our friends will be coming to stay here.

Room Tip: The courtyard rooms - we stayed in a twin room - have access onto the gardens.

Thank you so much for taking the time and trouble to write such a glowing review. Your description reads more like a safari than a Scottish island; we're so glad you had such splendid weather - even if it did rather spoil your appetite! Come back and bring more sunshine any time you like!

This is a special hotel on a very special island. The bungalows are lovingly decorated and furnished, spacious, perfect for a family with small children or large, and a bargain for the price. The staff are warm, helpful and friendly, but that's been our consistent experience throughout Scotland. And Arran has some truly beautiful walks - you must drive all the way around the island. Be sure to visit the Arran Distillery because the whiskey is not to be missed. The only drawback to the Kilmichael is it's not close to the sea. That said, its setting is marvelous, including the peacocks roaming the grounds. Finally, be sure to bring midge repellent because they do swarm.

We were planning our 20th wedding anniversary trip to Scotland and came across Kilmichael House in "Scotish Life " magazine. We were not disappointed!! We were warmly welcomed by the "Ladies" after traveling for just about 24hrs. The Byre suite was perfect. The wonderful warm feeling of the all small personal touches was very relaxing. There was even a welcoming wee dram of the local Arran whisky in the sitting room of the suite!! The staff was always smiling and very helpful. I arranged to have some roses in the room for my wife(she loves roses) and the staff took care of that for me. The food was great, the location was perfect and views were breath taking! We even decided to stay an extra night!! We are going come back!!

I had a weekend staying at Kilmichael House on my own to catch up with Arran friends and I can't remember feeling more pampered. From the warm and friendly welcome to the beautifully decorated bedroom and public rooms and the delicious food, this hotel is a wonderful place to get away from it all. Loved the peacocks, hens and geese wandering around the grounds and the peace, and the fact that it is a small hotel and the service is very personal. I am looking forward to visiting again soon and taking my other half this time.

Room Tip: Grizel's Room is a luxurious single - a real treat!
