I have stayed at this hotel four times in the last year (five days each time). I occasionally have to work in Arran and this is where I am put up. Each time I have had a fantastic room, which was large and well appointed. Each was different in it's own way and decorated to a high standard. My favourite is number 6, ot only is there a 4 poster bed but a large lounge area and a 32 inch TV, not to mention the stunning views over the Bay and the Holy Isle. The general views to the front of the hotel are simply stunning. It really gets me every time I come back over and drive into Lamlash from the Ferry. Lamlash is such a beautiful little village with stunning scenery.
The hotel is very much a family run type of hotel and Ian and Liz (the owners) do their very best to ensure everything is just right. Brian, the manager, is at the centre of everything that goes on in the hotel. He seems to work morning, noon and night and is so friendly and helpful. He really goes all out to provide the best service possible. All the waitresses are also very good and have a big smile to greet you every time you go into the restaurant. This brings me onto the food. There is a new chef in town and to use a term that the hotels American waitress would use, he is simply "awsome". Young Liam delivers absolutely delicious dishes. the mains on the menu are all great, even the burger was the best I have tasted in years. But don't think that there are no sophistocated options available. He regularly introduces specials which are to die for. On my last visit I had seafood (prawn, calamari and swordfish) risotto and a chicken with cajun cream sause crepe. Both were exceptional and more akin to food you would get in a top restaurant in the city, with the added benefit of a great view from the window. I would also highly recommend the surf and turf, I had the fillet with king prawn and peppercorn sause. Trust me, you wont be disappointed.
Overall, if you are looking for a small hotel with great service, hospitality and excellent food, not to mention the view again, then this is the place for you to go when visiting this wonderful Island, then the Lamlash Bay is tho one to visit. Personally I can't wait to return, even my wife and kids have visited and they love it too.
