Reviewed March 25, 2013

First trip to the island and we were very lucky with this great place to stay. The staff was wonderful and took great care of all our needs. They were all very friendly (Marty was exceptional). The breakfast in the morning is very decent compared to other places I have stayed at and eaten in England/Scotland. They were great in accomodating dietary needs. We also had the chance to have dinner and it was certainly one of the better meals we had on the island. The room that we stayed in had a great view overlooking Holy Isle and we were lucky with the weather (Splurge for the view)! The biggest thing was that it was clean!!!
The Lamlash Bay Hotel is also an ideal location because you're in the middle of the island. One day for the North of the island (visit the distellery) and one day South of the island (beaches are beautiful and if you're lucky you'll see seals). Of course hike up the mountain too!!! It was perfect!
We wanted to get away from the city life and really did enjoy ourselves! If we're ever to visit again we'll be sure to book at the Lamlash again!
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!!

---The only thing I'd say is that at night it does get chilly, the bathroom was the warmest place but ask for an electric heater and you're all set.

Room Tip: For a little more ask for a room with a view

We had stayed here for new year and came back for a weekend break to get over the January blues, once again we had a fantastic time! Our room was spotless and comfortable with fabulous views. The food in this hotel is superb and the bar is cosy with a great selection of drinks. Overall we cannot fault it, the service is amazing and we have to give a special mention to the manager Brian! We will definitely be back, only sorry we had to leave! Would highly recommend this hotel for a wonderful stay in Arran!x

The rooms are lovely, especially the ones with views onto Holy Island, and very clean. The food and service are particularly noteworthy - our steaks were cooked to perfection and the staff were very friendly. Only complaint was I could feel the springs in the mattress, but overall a great stay, highly recommended!

Lamlash Hotel is a lovely place, set in a beautiful location and is made all the better by the staff and owners.Work colleagues and i stayed for a while and were made so welcome by everyone. Liz went out of her way to take me to hospital and wait for me there for an emergency appontment. Now that's literally going the extra mile for their guests! The hotel has a lovely family feel to it, is tastefully decorated and kept really clean. Good food at good prices (again thanks cos i'm a picky vegetarian and the chef gladly changed things about for me in the menu - and even made a special dish for me!).I felt totally at ease there and would recommend it to anyone. Friendly locals in the bar too.
Great views accross to Holy Isle, a lovely beach you can walk right out on when the tides out and a herd (?) of 8 swans were there. Also owls and hawks about for bird lovers!
This is a great place to stay and i would advise it to families, couples, singles, businesses....you got it, the lot! Thanks to you all for a lovely stay

Room Tip: room one for honey mooners or presidents! you'l just have to go to see why ;-)

Had a brilliant time here at New Year with my wife and pair of friends. Food and service were excellent (enjoyed the second best steak I've ever eaten and i eat a lot of steaks!) Great wee bar filled with friendly locals and happy residents was a great way to see in the New Year. Ian and Liz could not do enough for us. Our room was very nice and has a stunning view of the Holy Isle. My only regret? Not trying one of the famous pizzas! Would recommend for anyone wanting an informal friendly break on the island. Will certainly be back!

Came here with my partner and a couple of friends for new year and had a fantastic time! My partner and I came last year and couldn't wait to return. The room was lovely and clean, with a great view of the holy isle and Ian and Liz could not have been more welcoming and friendly. We ate dinner in the restaurant on the first night (best.steak.ever!) and sorely regretting not eating there on the second night too (opting instead to travel into Brodick).

We are definitely planning our next trip to lamlash bay hotel... Hopefully before next Hogmanay!

We came here for new year to have a quiet one as my wife is pregnant. It was very relaxing and the staff were very friendly. The room was clean enough and it had a great view of The Holy Isle. The food was excellent and reasnobly priced. The pizza was awesome! I know that sounds odd from a hotel on an island, but the owner previously owned a traditional pizza shop and still knows his stuff!
The annoying bits-
Pipes coming out of the floor in the bathroom were unsightly.
There was some black mould in the conrners of the shower unit.
There was NO towel rail in the bathroom!! Come on.....
In general, the bathroom was our gripe. The shower, although it had great pressure was tempermental temperature wise. These are details which are quite easily solved and should be in our opinion.

Room Tip: we had room 6. It was a good sized room and the bathroom was the only issue. Great couch in front of...
