I booked a wedding anniversary week-end here on the strength of other tripadvisor reviews and the hotel website. You never know if the reality will match what you read, but in this case it did, and more!
Arran is a beautiful island, and the hotel is in a lovely location beside a burn in a glen leading inland from Brodick. The rocky peaks of the northern part of the island tower over it and obligingly caught the morning sun each day we were there. The hotel is set in peaceful wooded grounds with a beautiful woodland garden made more magical by peacocks and sculptures.
The building itself is a gem which has been lovingly preserved and restored and the interior is sympathetically decorated and furnished with unobtrusive good taste, particularly in the entrance hall and the two delightful drawing rooms. The welcome was warm and genuine and the service was impeccable throughout our stay. Our room was comfortable and well appointed and the small welcome decanter of Arran malt whisky was a particularly nice touch.
Last, but best of all, the food. Breakfasts were excellent with a wide choice of fresh local produce, including excellent new laid eggs, but dinner was simply superb in every detail and our only regret was to have booked to eat there on only one night of our stay.
Finally we particularly appreciated the fact that there were no hidden extras making an unwelcome appearance on the bill, and charges for extras such as tea and drinks were very reasonable.
