“Exceptional venue”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

I booked this resort through a discount website and was a little bit wary of what I would be getting. I didn't know the area, and the address of 'East Marsh' had me holding my breath. I needn't have worried, this was such an exceptional stay that within an hour and a half, we had booked a second night. All the rooms are individually styled, and the Manager was so pleased with them, I was given a tour of quite a few of them. The indoor pool and health spa were so relaxing, it was hard to leave The Corran. The restaurant is superb and the wait staff are impeccable. I just wish this resort was a lot closer to my home location, it would be going a lot more often.

Room Tip: Every room is exceptional, we stayed in 'the byre' and the rooms were huge

Just returned from a fantastic break at The Corran and had to write a worthy review right away. The hotel is surrounded by breath-taking countryside and just a short drive from some amazing beaches. Upon entering the hotel we were greeted by friendly staff who instantly made us feel welcome. The décor of the entire hotel is very high end boutique and the bedrooms are individually decorated adding an extra special touch. The food was excellent and the menu very creative and breakfast was delicious. The highlight of our stay was making use of the pool, jacuzzi and spa treatments. We loved every minute.

A quiet retreat, yet not far from excellent beaches and holiday resorts. Some of the rooms are excellent, but the older ones are a bit tired. However expansion is planned.
The ground s could be lovely, but very little has been done to make them interesting.
Food very good.
The spa area is small and a bit pokey, but understand this is one of the areas that is planned for improvement.
If you like shabby chic, you will probably like this place.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the newer rooms

My wife and I wanted a short break in and around an area I know well, and on recommendation from friends who had visited The Corran for afternoon tea we decided to make a reservation. The booking over the phone direct with the hotel was easy, courteous and efficient. Lauren who took the booking listened to my requirements and confirmed everything quickly. On arrival we were warmly greeted by Jodie who made us very welcome and from the start. She gave an aura of caring attention which was echoed by all the staff we came into contact with.The food was very good, albeit we did only use the restaurant for dinner once as we were out with friends in the area at other times. Breakfast excellent with good choice and fresh produce and attentively served. We were impressed with the room size and facilities, and the absolute quiet given the remote location of the hotel was a joy. The only sounds being the odd cow and maybe sheep. Friendly, clean, relaxing and good value. We need to return and sample the spa next time. To all at the Corran, thank you and well done.

This hotel and spa has a high end boutique feel with great friendly staff who accomadate every request I had made. The food was excellent with some really inventive dishes that show creativity but dont compromise on taste. The rooms are fantastic with great decor and modern tech, it puts to shame many of the other hotels I have to stayed in. The surrounding area is very beautiful and with a little research there are some fantstic spots within 15 mins drive. Overall I would thoroughly recommend this location as a small intimate spa and hotel to stay either as a break or on business. One enhancement would be to have an all in stay and meal package.

Room Tip: Try the rooms with a spial staircase.

The hotel was stylishly decorated but felt a little barren. The restaurant is a large open long space which did not feel very intimate in the evenings. The floors are tiled or floorboards throughout which looks good, but isn't very comfortable to live with. We could hear people on all the hard floors from our room and makes the place feel a bit hollow, It is probably better in hot summer than at cooler times, This is just my personal taste but a cosy sofa or a rug somewhere would have been pleasant.
The food was very good, particularly the breakfast, which had a lot of choice and was beautifully cooked.
The evening menu is a little expensive for the main courses.
The gym was very small, literally 3 machines and my husband likes to use a gym on holiday and this was one of the reasons we'd booked. There were no free weights.
The swimming pool is also very small and not for exercise, just floating in.
The area immediately around is not very beautiful, quite marshy.
The approach road doesn't look as if it's been finished yet as the road is rough stone along with the carpark.
We did book through a discount holiday company for £100 a night including breakfast, which was about right, I wouldn't have wanted to pay the standard rates which are I think between £150 and £200 a night.
The bedding was good, a nice down quilt and comfortable pillows but the bed was a bit firm for my taste.
The bathroom was very glamorous.
The staff did their best to make this a pleasant experience and the service was good.
Not enough either at the hotel or in the immediate area to induce us to return though.

One night stay to celebrate our anniversary. Lovely room with mezzanine bedroom accessed via spiral staircase, plenty of tech B&O tv and sound system. Very nice dinning room, good staff, delicious food. Will come here again and try the spa facilities next time.
