“Good food and whiskey”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

We visit Arran every year, and the Ormidale Hotel most years. This year the restaurant was distinctly more spruced, and the food was great. They have a good selection of whiskey also. Three starters, fours mains and eight drinks for less than £60!

Stayed at Ormidale for a weekend. It's a beautiful old building with a lovely garden, when the weather is clear, it's brilliant to have a drink in the beer garden. Ormidale is a bit of party place during the night (didn't know when I booked it), which can be a problem if you are a light sleeper, but not me. And interestingly because it's got music and disco balls, it became our gathering place every night. The room is a bit pinky for me, but the bathroom is quite spacious for a single room and all toiletry are provided by Arran Aromatics, which is nice to see things are sourced locally.

Spend one night here. Beautiful building, family ran and good breakfast. Decent beds and it has a bar with ok prices Its a bit of a walk to all places in brodick. Its an old building and therefothe rooms are extremely noisy, don't go here if you are a light sleeper. The family is nice but we got a bit uncanny feeling from them

This hotel has a great, relaxed and welcoming atmosphere and the staff are superb. They were really flexible and helpful and we really felt at home here. The food is really great and is homemade, we were really impressed!

Well what can we say apart from it was just a great and very informal place to be! Just what you want when away from the rat race as they say! A family run business with great customer service which is rare these days! Had booked 2 rooms, both outstanding quality for what they say is a 2 star hotel? Absolutely spotless in bedrooms and without a doubt 3 or 4 star standard!! It was so dog friendly also which is great and so easy to eat in bar lounge at night without having to lock dogs in the car! This hotel deserves a 4 star rating at the least for it's excellent service, quality and cleanliness of rooms, through to it's location and food. We shall certainly return for a visit next year! all going well a bit longer also! Thank you Ormidale for a rather short but very enjoyable vacation!!

Room Tip: all rooms look outstanding, spotless

First time I've stayed here but certainly wont be the last. Loved the atmosphere of the place, the friendly bar staff, the food, the location.
I booked this as a last minute thing and was really just looking for a bed for a couple of nights while I done a bit of walking and chilled out a bit. The single room was quite small, but then again it was a single room. The decor of the room was bright, the room was clean and very comfortable including the single bed. (I'm over 6 foot).
It is a small hotel and I think that adds to its character, the staff were all great, the food was really good and all at a decent price.
Overall everything well surpassed my expectations considering the cheap price. If your looking for somewhere that will give you the true Arran feeling and experience then this is it. Need to book up again soon.

If you like a quirky hotel with good service, then you'll probably like the Ormidale. It's not luxurious but the beds are comfortable and the breakfast is good. At the present time, there are building works taking place in the hotel (in the downstairs' lounge). This shouldn't greatly affect your stay but it does affect the appearance of the building.
