I have just returned from a short family break and felt I must share my experience. This is our 2nd stay at Auchrannie. We got picked up from the ferry by the hotel minibus, which was great although we didn't realise we could get it back to the ferry as this was not clearly advertised. We had originally booked a room in the house hotel as the spa was full, however we did ask if this could be changed if there was a cancellation. Luckily for us there was and the receptionist (Elaine I think?) sorted it all out for us which we very much appreciated. The swimming pool was warm which is always nice but we either had to go outside or through the restraurant to get to it which seemed unusual. However, it was very clean and well maintained. Lots of choice with meals at Cruize and our waitress Margaret was very friendly and helpful. The food was good at both dinner and breakfast. My 3 year old enjoyed the Playbarn very much although the resort could do with a traditional outdoor play park with swings and slides - I'm sure this would be very enjoyable for the kids. Our room was big and very clean and I love the Arran Arromatic toiletries and the bottled water in the fridge. Also had good broadband reception in the room which was a nice surprise. The bus service in Arran isn't great and the hotel doesn't offer a shuttle service, which I think might be helpful for elderly residents or those with young kids. Overall a great stay and we hope to be back again soon.

- 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
