“Excellent small hotel”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Perfect location overlooking the beach, with regular wildlife events visible from the window, including gannets diving, porpoises passing and a dozen swans. The hosts know everything about where to go on the island to see various birds and animals, and also good advice on where to eat. The room was comfortable and spacious, breakfast wholesome and good quality. Wi-Fi was reliable and plenty fast enough for internet, posting, etc.

Room Tip: Make sure you get a sea view

John and Doreen make you feel welcome from the moment you arrive. We were treated like old friends upon our arrival and were made to feel that way throughout our stay. From the best places to walk to the best places to eat, they were a mine of useful information - I am already missing John's breakfast conversations !
Their hotel may not be the best and yes it could do with some redecoration....but that's not the point....the welcome is warm, the service is good and where else can you go when the owners offer up their own binoculars, walking sticks or whatever they can to give you that wonderful Scottish welcome...enjoy the break ! And the breakfast.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea front room...you can't beat the sound of the sea lapping against the shore whilst...

John and Doreen are the perfect hosts. They are so knowlegeble about the island and the area, you can count on getting good advice as what to do and see. We spent evenings with John in the lounge talking and watching football. What fun. He is a wealth of knowledge. The setting is peaceful and comfortable. Room and bath were large and we had a view out over the water. If you're looking to get away for some relaxation and peace and quiet. This is it.

Room Tip: Get the front room with the view. Nice view and breezes.

This was a beautiful hote in a lovely position right opposite the beach but I think it has seen better times. John and Doreen were exceptional good hosts and the breakfast was excellent but the room was tired and needed updating. However we were the only guests for most of our stay and the peace and tranquility was all we needed.

Room Tip: In the front overlooking the sea

Having just returned from The Burlington in Whiting Bay, Isle of Arran I must say this is one of the nicest short beaks we have had. The hotel is excellent, scottish breakfasts to die for, rooms spotless, and John and Doreen just cannot do enough for you. They were just the perfect hosts. The views from our rooms were quite something. I have never been to Arran before and cannot believe how lucky we were to book in at the Burlington. Whiting Bay is the perfect location for peace and escaping the hustle and bustle of town life. This is a first class hotel.

The Trafalgar Resturant is also a must. The menu is fantastic and the food cooked to perfection.

Room Tip: Request a sea view and you cannot go wrong.

The fourth time we stayed with John & Doreen, the fourth time we enjoyed a comfortable night, clean & spacious room, & excellent breakfast.
If you're lucky (we always are) try Johns home baked bread.
Walkers can rely on good advice.
