We have always wanted to stay at the Auchrainne and finally made it for 2 nights in early Jan! Now in tow with our 14 month old, we did see all aspects of what the hotel and resort had to offer. Great choice of restaurants, family friendly but still felt like a couple too. Lovely leisure centre, spacious well equipped bedrooms and a fantastic ESPA facial, a great all rounder! We will be back......

We stayed two nights in a lodge with friends, just before Christmas. As soon as we arrived, the reception lady could not have been more helpful, and the lodge, with lit Christmas tree, very welcoming. the swimming pool with mood lighting was very relaxing. We ate in Brambles restaurant on the first night and the meal was fine, but nothing to write home about. thankfully on the second night we had the best meal EVER at Stags Pavilion, Lochranza. Certainly worth the 25 minute drive. (See separate review). The lodge had everything we needed for our short break, and we certainly plan a turn trip.

Thanks to a good value Groupon deal we purchased, we spent 2 days and 1 night at the Spa Resort at the Auchrannie in Brodick, Isle of Arran. We arrived quite early, off the first boat from Ardrossan, and we had no problem checking in before midday and our room was read for us. The hotel reception staff were very friendly and informative, offering leaflets about what to do on the island, etc.

The room in the spa resort was spacious, at a good temperature, with a decent sized bathroom too and everything was nice and clean; no complaints there!

We used the swimming pool in the spa resort twice during our stay and both times it was very pleasant and relaxing. The pool temperature is perfect (not too warm and not too cold) and we enjoyed using the sauna and steam room as well. It was quite quiet, so on Saturday before breakfast we had the pool all to ourselves too!

We had dinner in the Brambles Bar and Brasserie which was very nice indeed. The seafood platter to share was filling, very tasty and good value for money! It was a bit too warm and stuffy where our table was located in the restaurant, so we asked to move to another section and we were accommodated immediately with no problem at all. The staff were very helpful and friendly.

Prior to that we had a drink in the eighteen69 bar next to the open log fire and beautiful Christmas tree. The ambiance was excellent and we'd definitely recommend visiting at that time of year.

Breakfast was in the Cruize Bar and Restaurant, and although not included in the Groupon deal, we opted to pay ( very reasonably priced) for the contintental breakfast, which included a great spread of cereals, bread and toast, croissants, pastries, Arran cheeses and smoked salmon.

Another bonus of staying at the Auchrannie is that we managed to get an upgraded tour of the Arran Distillery - highly recommended too!

All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend the Auchrannie Spa Resort!

We had our 2nd fabulous stay at Auchrannie in November 2012.

Myself, my husband and our almost 2 year old daughter enjoyed our experience in February so much, we decided to go back again.

The staff are excellent and more than helpful. (Thanks to the manager who located my watch which had been dropped in the car park and handed in by a kind person.)

We at in Cruize restaurant and were served by Kaylee who is lovely. I recommend the smoked haddock risotto - amazing! Breakfast has everything you could possibly want.

Our daughter loved the playbarn which is very well equipped.

Our rooms was very spacious and the shower was brilliant.

We have just booked our next stay. Highly recommended!!

Enjoyed our two day break, although lots of small children running about. it's a good resort for families. I would recommend staying in the old/ original part of the resort if just a couple. We went to Arran for walking but the weather prevented that so we went to the gym and pool instead.

Thoroughly enjoyed 5 day break the week before Christmas despite the rain.The leisure facilities came into their own and despite walking in the rain on a couple of days, we were pleased to be able to use the gym and the pool, afterwards. It was great to have such good facilities on site.
The accommodation in the spa resort was spacious and clean.
We hope to return to do more walking when the weather is likely to be better!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
At the heart of the beautiful isle of Arran lies the multi-award winning, family owned Auchrannie Resort. Auchrannie now consists of two four star hotels; the romantic and relaxing ‘House Hotel’ catering for couples and those wanting a more intimate experience whilst the contemporary ‘Spa Resort’ is popular with families and those prefer a more modern feel to their surroundings. In addition, the resort features 30 five-star self-catering lodges (sleeping up to 8 in total luxury and therefore perfect for the extended family), 3 outstanding, award winning restaurants and bars, 2 leisure centres both with pools, destination spa featuring treatments by ESPA and Ishga and an outdoor adventure centre. Arran is Scotland’s most accessible islands, often referred to as "Scotland in Miniature” due to the dramatic contrast between the hills and mountains in the north, and sweeping moorlands on the south of the island. A short 55 minute ferry journey off the Ayrshire coast, Arran is easily reachable by those arriving into any of central Scotland’s main airports as well as those travelling by car, train and coach. Whilst many tourists arrive on the island simply to kick back and relax, the island is packed with attractions and sights for visitors of all ages. ... more   less
