“Five star comfort at this small hotel!”
Reviewed April 30, 2010

As usual, we try to read some reviews on tripadvisor before booking. We were not to be disappointed with the Glenisle. Management have their 'finger on the pulse' which means that there is attention to detail. If you have a problem with anything in your room, it is instantly dealt with. Our standard room was really comfortable with a lovely ensuite bathroom and we appreciated the luxurious thick bath towels. Service was excellent and nothing was too much trouble. We had planned to eat evening meals elsewhere but having enjoyed the first so much, decided to eat in the hotel on the other three evenings.
Hope to make a return visit in the near future!

We has our honeymoon at the Glenisle and we were blown away by our room, the honeymoon suit is fantastic. The suit overlooks Lamlash bay out to the Holy Isle, it is a clean and recently refurbished room with an AMAZING bathroom! All the staff at the hotel were wonderful and very attentive, nothing was too much for them! We ate at the restaurent a couple of evenings and found the food to be wonderful.

3 adults stayed for 4 nights in one double room and one single in this hotel and could not find a fault! The rooms were clean and comfortable, check in quick and easy, owners and staff were great and food was fab! Car parking was also availble toward the rear of the hotel.

The hotel is about 10 to 15 minutes drive from the main town of Brodick. Great location with good walks along the seafront.

Not stayed in the hotel since its refurbishment but I cannot wait go back!

The attention to detail in every aspect of this small hotel is superb. Very comfortable and beautfully decorated and furnished room with fabulous views out to sea. The food was excellent and the staff charming. We would highly recommend it as a base from whch to tour Arran.

Lamlash is the ultimate get-away location and the Glenisle Hotel cannot be faulted for cleanliness, atmosphere or comfort. The staff were friendly and attentive and the food in the restaurant was perfect.
What makes this hotel a cut above the rest is the very high quality and specification of the recent renovations. Each room is unique in appearance and all have beautiful views of this stunning area.
This is the perfect hotel if you are looking for a relaxing break in a clean, fresh and comfortable environment.

Highly recommend this lovely hotel in Lamlash. It has been newly renovated and the decor is clean, fresh and comfy. The whole service was excellent, I contacted the hotel several times before our stay and they were very attentive and accomodating. We had a lovely meal for 10 people which was of a very high standard and enjoyed by all. The food was much better than I was expecting for a hotel of its size. The staff were friendly and helpful and never 'in your face'. The hotel has plenty of lovely public space to sit and relax without feeling you are disturbing other residents.I would certainly return either as a group or as a couple.

Very friendly service without being overbearing in a clean, well considered and well decorated hotel. The food was superb and very fresh with a good mix of the contemporary and the traditional. Definitely one for a revisit.
