We arrived on a crisp clear day and Paris asked if we would like to upgrade to a suite for an extra £10 per night, We said OK and when we saw the room it was fantastic. The bed area was great and the sitting area with the sofa an TV on the wall was superb. The view out of our balcony right out to sea was great. we could sit and watch the seals in the morning before we went on our walks. We decided to have a meal in the first night and lo and behold we were the only guests. The food was excellent and was a good choice. we had a starter and main course each and coffee and could not finish our main. Breakfast was good. On the second night we ate in again and we had different choice from the first night. Again too much. The soup was superb with the hot bread and the steak and ale Pie was the best and fullest I have ever had. The breakfast next morning we had the continental which consisted of hot bread, grapes, cheese, cold meats and again ample. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel. The staff were great in all areas of the hotel.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Unwind and forget your troubles at our small, family run hotel. Built in the 17th Century, it is one of the 7th oldest licensed Inns in Scotland and historically a destination that families have aspired to visit for well over 100 years. Perched on the southern-most tip of Arran with panoramic views to die for, the hotel is located right on the seafront, the beach literally stone's throw away. Overlooking the Firth of Clyde we are right in the middle of a unique eco-system with a plethora of wildlife. We have seals basking daily on the rock jetties off-shore, otters feeding and playing on the rocks and gannets diving non-stop through the day. We are also fortunate to have occasional basking sharks and dolphins visiting in the summer months and an array of birds-of-prey including eagles, peregrines, buzzards and more... Pladda Island sits directly across the sound with its recognisable lighthouse and ever changing silhouette playing host to a large colony of seagulls and gannets. And of course the famous Ailsa Craig, 'Paddy's Milestone', a bird sanctuary now but is renowned for its granite which is still used for curling stones today. The interior is fully refurbished, still maintaining some the quaint characteristics of old, while the tasteful addition of extended bistro and lounge area with floor to ceiling windows allow residents and diners to gaze for miles over a cup of tea, breakfast or an evening meal. ... more less
