“Very helpful & friendly staff”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

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.

Room Tip: Try not to get a room near a door as people kept slamming them very early in the morning.

Just returned from a 3 night break at Auchrannie and felt the need to write a big 'Thank You' to all the staff! This was our first break after the birth of our baby (5 months) and despite being slightly nervous about how things would go, things were made easy by the friendly and welcoming staff.

Food, accommodation and facilities were great. Special mention to Stephen (hope i've got your name right!) who served us in both Brambles and Cruize restaurants.

Our first trip but we will be back!

I recently spent a few relaxing days at the Auchrannie Luxury Lodges and I could not have been more relaxed, with every need being catered for by the staff on arrival. I did not want for anything as the staff had thought of almost evry scenario and had provided it within the lodges. There was a clean kitchen and large dining for when we cooked and stayed in for the evening and then the restaurants within the complex provided great food and service at a reasonable price.

The Spa comes with the lodges with only the treatments to be paid for at a discounted rate. It was easily the most relaxed I've been in a while and I am already planning my return.

8 of us went cycling around Arran and stayed at the Auchrannie for two nights. Beautiful location, very friendly staff and excellent facilities. The service and food where exceptional, especially the night porter in the old building who at 2am got a bunch of slightly tipsy lads drinks and munchies. Thoroughly recommended for its scenery, location and friendliness of the staff.

Their poster in reception is true, you will find it hard to leave the Auchrannie.

Three old college friends & myself had a fabulously special time here at this Spa hotel,sharing 2 twin rooms
Rooms were of a high standard with excellent views .
The staff were very helpful & professional at all times.The spa staff were excellent & took great care & effort to make sure the ladies had exactly the treatments they required.
We ate in The Cruise resturant & Eighteen69 for our "Special" meal together ! the food was outstanding & the service Top Notch .
Our buffet breakfast was also very good & relaxing with us being able to take our time chatting ,reading papers & enjoying the views out over Arran.
We had a good look around the island & really want to return for a longer stay & perhaps book one of the superb lodges.
Definately going to return .

I recently enjoyed a 2 night break at the Spa Resort. I was in a party of 4 sharing 2 twin rooms. The rooms were a good size and very comfortable. Good powerful showers and lovely Arran Aromatics toiletries.
We ate in Cruize both nights and found the choice and quality of the food excellent. Buffet breakfasts were also spot on. All staff were very friendly and helpful.
We used the courtesy bus pick up from the ferry and arranged for our luggage to be delivered back to the terminal in time for our return ferry. This left us luggage-free to enjoy our last day. Great service.
Looking forward to our next visit.

My wife and I spent a most enjoyable, relaxing weekend in April at the Spa Resort. Room was of a good standard and all staff were very friendly. Ate in two of the three restaurants. Great food and service. If and when I return to Arran I would definately stay at the Spa Resort.

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
