Lovely weekend break. Had booked a double room but was upgraded to a room with a balcony as it was my Birthday!. Stunning sea views over Pladda and otters and seals abound. Food nice and the breakfasts were just what we needed to keep us going all day. Lovely and quiet, the only sound was the sea and the gulls....

Perfect family holiday last Easter. Room clean with love views to Ailsa Craig and Pladda. Kids spent hours playing in the rock pools, seal and otter spotting. We will definitely be back. There were some building works going on when we were there but didn't detract from the holiday at all - I look forward to coming back when they...

Bathroom is nothing fancy but the room itself was comfortable and cosy. nice view from the balcony at sunset too. Food was good, not sure I was all...

Had a 2 night stay between xmas and new year. Hotel is situated south part of Arran with spectacular views of Pladda island and Aisla Craig, with lovely sunrises and sunsets and a rugged beach where you can watch the seals frolic in the sea. Apart from the Kildonan, there is nothing else around so unless you have a car...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Unwind and forget your troubles at our small, family run hotel. Built in the 17th Century, it is one of the 7th oldest licensed Inns in Scotland and historically a destination that families have aspired to visit for well over 100 years. Perched on the southern-most tip of Arran with panoramic views to die for, the hotel is located right on the seafront, the beach literally stone's throw away. Overlooking the Firth of Clyde we are right in the middle of a unique eco-system with a plethora of wildlife. We have seals basking daily on the rock jetties off-shore, otters feeding and playing on the rocks and gannets diving non-stop through the day. We are also fortunate to have occasional basking sharks and dolphins visiting in the summer months and an array of birds-of-prey including eagles, peregrines, buzzards and more... Pladda Island sits directly across the sound with its recognisable lighthouse and ever changing silhouette playing host to a large colony of seagulls and gannets. And of course the famous Ailsa Craig, 'Paddy's Milestone', a bird sanctuary now but is renowned for its granite which is still used for curling stones today. The interior is fully refurbished, still maintaining some the quaint characteristics of old, while the tasteful addition of extended bistro and lounge area with floor to ceiling windows allow residents and diners to gaze for miles over a cup of tea, breakfast or an evening meal. ... more   less
