We have just returned from a 3 night stay at the Kilmichael; I cannot recall my wife and I feeling so relaxed in a hotel. This was particularly significant as we experienced very wet weather on the island and we spent more time in the hotel than we would have otherwise done.
Helen escorted us to our room; we arrived early..1pm..as the rain was torrential. We felt as though we had arrived in an oasis of calm. Real thought and sensitivity had gone into the rooms. We had everything we wanted and none of the things we didnt want.There were books, baskets of fruit, maps,Arran soapsetc in the bathroom.
Dinner was sensational every night. Drinks were taken in the infomal surroundings of the owners drawing room with a roaring fire and heaving bookcases for company.
What can I say about the food? Why this place is not in the good food guide I cannot imagine. Local fresh fish and meat..unpretentious but wonderfully stylish cooking and everyday something you ate which left you almost speechless with admiration.
For breakfast, I had the best scrambled eggs and smoked salmon I have ever eaten.. complete with hot buttered toast made with one of the unusual home baked breads we were offered at every meal.All served by attentive staff and particularly the delightful Anna.
The hotel is in a very quiet corner of Arran, The proprietors are friendly, helpful and knowledgeable.. we cannot wait to go back.
