We had a lovely Anniversary stay in Room 3 with such a stunning view from the balcony. Staff very helpful and friendly, we had both breakfast and evening meal and everything cooked perfectly.

Tips:

Brodick Castle well worth a visit with lovely gardens to wander through. If you are a whiskey drinker the distillery at Lochranza had tasting sessions but due to renovations the tour wasn’t available at this time. We saw seals basking in the rocks close to Lamlash Bay. The Auchrannie Resort had a lovely Seafood bistro and leisure facilities.

Amazing location, staff lovely very welcoming. Disappointed with amount of dogs in bar. Not all but some bar staff and restaurant staff made a fuss of dogs and only 1 member off staff washed hands before carrying on with their duties. Chairs in dinning room need attention most were stained others had tatty loose coverings. Evening meals were top class the only thing to spoil this was music too loud didn't need so many speakers. I chose Isle of Arran for my special birthday and wasn't dissapointed.

This is an exceptional hotel, with exceptional staff, whether in the hotel itself; or the restaurant, they made me feel really welcomed and valued as a customer. They knew I was there for wildlife photography and went out of their way to identify locations for me, making recommendations that really paid off. The location itself is directly opposite the Holy Island which the sun rises directly behind, giving outstanding early morning vistas. The food in the bar, and breakfast was fantastic, and very filling (they do not skimp on portions - thankfully). Would I recommend this hotel - hell yes!!

Tips:

Lochranza is the hot-spot for most of the wildlife, which is only a 25min drive away, but has very few facilities there. So a stay in Lamlash, and a drive through outstanding scenery to get to Lochranza was a winner for me.

Our first time on holiday with our dog! Staff very accommodating and friendly and your policy for dogs was ideal for us. We don't normally have a full breakfast at home, so they kept it us going all day with out having to think of what to do at lunch time.

Tips:

Our first trip to Arran and we where not disappointed, despite the rain (which we anticipated being Sept/Oct). We drove around the island which didn't take that long but mainly walked in the southern half using walks found on walkhighlands.co.uk, a lot of the walks lasted roughly 2 hours. Weather was not kind to us so we limited it to one walk a day but you could easily do more if inclined. I think we where lucky with the wild life, a display in Lamlash bay of porpoise and dolphin lasted 45-60 minutes. During a walk along the shore line at Kildonan, as well as lots of seals we observed an otter feeding. On another walk we saw red squirrels.

The location of the hotel was good as was the food, our room seemed a little expensive for a tiny double room in the attic with a view of the local builder's office and the back of the Co-op. Overall, our stay at The Lamlash Bay Hotel was spoiled by the fact that on ordering drinks in the bar we were unable to attach the drinks to our room bill and were advised to start a tab which we did. Assuming that any additional drinks and our meal would be added to the tab, we had dinner and on leaving the restaurant we were very embarrassingly 'chased' by a member of staff demanding payment for the meal.

Tips:

Beware of starting a tab to pay for drinks and a meal.

Owner Response:

Dear Guests, Part of our check in procedure is to explain to guests that we have already taken full payment for the stay and that anything else is pay as you go. We are a small team and this saves us interupting breakfast service to process room bills. It is a great way to manage the staff shortages which have impacted every hospitality business nationwide and also suits most guests who prefer this system because they are rushing off to catch ferries. If this was not communicated properly to you during check in then I am very sorry. Prices are up on just about everything whether its milk, cereal, petrol, energy or room rates. Thank you for staying with us.

Just GO! The island is amazing and so is this hotel. If you have a dog don’t be nervous. This place is truly dog friendly and our pooch was made to feel as welcome as we were.

The room was adequate but we felt it was overpriced for what it was. Luxury price without the luxury! The food was good but at the higher end of the price scale. Staff were friendly and efficient. We didn't really like having to fill in a breakfast card the night before and everything felt a bit rushed. The restaurant was very noisy.

We have been eating and drinking at the Lamlash Bay Hotel for many years whilst on the island and its always been nice. This was the first time we have actually stayed at the hotel (long weekend). The rooms are very clean and comfortable and the staff in the restaurant and bar are very helpful and friendly. Breakfast is pre-order and was very good, with a good choice for all tastes. Thank you Meg and Serge and the staff for an excellent weekend stay.

Great base for an island holiday on Arran, Lamlash is the prettiest village and 10 mins from Brodick and the ferry. Free parking in the car park 30 yds from the hotel.

Perfect Arran holiday location. Very well maintained & characterful Guest House. The food exceeded our expectation (the calzone pizza was the best I've ever had). Huge food selection for breakfast too. The staff were happy, & very attentive to our needs including our little hound Saffron. The view from our room across the bay to Holy Island was stunning. I would definitely recommend!

Tips:

If you are an avid walker buy an OS map from Arran Outdoor in Brodick... Goatfell is a must! But park at Corrie & climb the shorter ascent, & descend the glen towards the Arran Brewery.

Everything was fine, though my hot breakfast on the second morning (Eggs Benedict) would have been nicer if it had been warmer. It's good if a hot meal is properly hot. Also, I feel it would be a good idea to provide two knifes at breakfast so that you can have a fresh one for spreading butter etc on your toast. Only one was provided both mornings.

Review ✓ minimum We visited the Lamlash Bay Hotel with high expectations having watched the Channel 4 series "4 in a bed" We were met at reception by no less than the lovely owner Meg who was as lovely as on TV. We were made to feel most welcome and we even posed for photos with the winning plaque. We were in room 4 which had the most incredible views over the bay to Holy Island. It was very tastefully furnished and everything was absolutely spotless. We really liked the pre order breakfast and enjoyed discussing and choosing from the excellent selection. When it arrived it was delicious in every way. The ladies who served in the restaurant were most friendly and set a great atmosphere with their mix of good conversation and selection of background music. We ate in the restaurant and can't recommend it enough, I had the Lamlash special it was top draw, cooked to perfection and very tasty. All round it was a fantastic experience and would love to repeat. Forgot to mention the bed and pillows, they were so comfortable which led to a great night's sleep! Thanks Meg and all your lovely staff for an incredible couple of days....hope to return again.

Tips:

A room at the front of the property is a must if one is available. Eat at the restaurant it's beautiful.

A really lovely hotel. Fab setting on the bay. A great welcome and friendly efficient service throughout our stay. Food very good - breakfast and our evening pizzas ( also good value ). Highly recommend. We had the top rear room described as small but it was perfect for the 2 of us.

Only 2 issues. I would have liked a change of towels during our week's stay. There is no "lounge " luckily the sun shone and we were outside. our room did not have a sea view so not so pleasant to sit and read in if the weather was poor. otherwise comfort excellent, staff wonderful and location superb. Thank you for a great week!

All of the staff were delightful, very friendly and helpful. The beef dish I had for dinner was one of the best I've had. We loved room 6, it exceeded our expectations. We were wakened on Thursday morning by the most glorious sunrise over the Holy Isle, a magical experience we won't forget. All in all we had the best of times at The Lamlash Bay Hotel and would highly recommend and hope to return soon.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Room 1 is a fabulous room, great views and the balcony an added bonus. Cleanliness: carpet in room not hoovered every day, balcony needing a wee brush, some chairs in the dining room are well past their best. Otherwise hotel well kept. Food: rhubarb and ginger jam was excellent, but the prepacked marmalade and strawberry jam were a let down! Porridge great every morning and we thoroughly enjoyed our evening meals. Staff are very friendly and service couldn't be faulted. Meg and Serge, you run an excellent hotel!! Looking forward to a return visit!!

Tips:

Try the porridge! Book a table in the hotel for dinner, food excellent Book a table in the bar for pre dinner drinks Use the bus service, a great way to see the island! Bring all weather clothes, Arran can be very wet but equally very warm and sunny, sunglasses and waterproofs!!

This was our first visit to Arran, and were highly impressed with the hotel. The staff and atmosphere of the hotel was 'family' and you made Lynda and I feel at home. We did see the Four In a Bed episode and how the hotel was the winner. We can see why, and would like to that Isla, and Katy and the other staff for making us feel welcome

Tips:

There are disabled facilities at the hotel, plus it is dog friendly too. If you are traveling around the island by car then PLEASE note that the roads are very narrow (which we are used to living in Aberdeenshire), so if you are from a major town or city on the mainland UK please stick to the advisory speed limit it'll make you your visit safer. Visit both the distilleries and Brodick Castle. Take midge spray too, they are vicious. There is live music at the Pier Head Tavern, and the Drifters bar is worth a visit too. We were advised to pre book for tables etc. if you want to eat away from the hotel, but to be honest the food at the hotel is exceptional.

If travelling to this beautiful hotel you will not be disappointed, and not only is it a great place to stay The staff the view the food are all superb, we went a walk along the road to the left and found a few pubs, one was right on the beech , also we took the car into brodick but you can travel right round the island, in which i plan to do the next time ,oh and also right next door there is the co-op great variety of stuff .snd a little suvenear shop across the road I would 100% recomend this hotel

An excellent place to stay for our few nights on Arran. A lovely view, a very spacious room with own balcony, nice meals also for us as vegetarians; I've got nothing to complain about. Well, like many charming hotels, there's sometimes a bit of noise from an upstairs guest, but really nothing to worry about. All in all, a great place to stay, really enjoyed our time in Lamlash.

Tips:

There's enough resources about what to see and do on Arran, I won't repeat that. Just if you're a beer lover, sure, visit the Arran brewery if you want, but don't forget to take a small walk from the hotel and arrange to meet with Stevie of the Seagate brewery right there in Lamlash. Lovely guy, supposedly lovely beers (bought some to bring home, I have yet to try them).

Had a great 3 night stay with my elderly father. From the minute we arrived to checking out we were looked after really well. Our bags were taken to our rooms which I was dreading the thought of doing myself. We received a gift of a free drink in the bar for being returning visitors, lovely surprise. Had dinner in the hotel on our first night, food was amazing. Breakfasts also really good, offers of extra tea/coffee and toast each morning and a wee blether with the owner offering us advice on where to visit that day. All in a great visit and will visit again very soon. Thank you to all at The Lamlash Bay Hotel.

The Lamlash Bay Hotel is a well run hotel with a friendly family like atmosphere with all the staff making you feel at home. The staff always have a smile and a very polite attitude while providing a bit of friendly banter. We took our dog “Harry” with us and he was made to feel like a genuine part of the family and as welcome a guest as ourselves. The hotel itself was spotless with cleanliness obviously a high priority. The food was excellent too from the cooked breakfast to the selection of evening meals. We are already planning our next visit to Arran and we won’t be considering anywhere else to stay.

Tips:

The only tip I would advise is that whether you are booking accommodation or a meal, book early to avoid disappointment. As the food is excellent the restaurant and bar is usually almost if not fully booked.

Another warm welcome from the Lamlash Bay Hotel team. Our room was pristine and comfortable, as always. Comfy bed. Dinner was delicious - the Curry and the Fish, Chips and Mushy Peas were so yummy, we didn't venture any further into the menu!

Tips:

Highly recommend Eggs Benedict for breakfast! The team continue to observe safety procedures, even although masks are now longer compulsory. If you do not wish a staff member to enter your room (make up beds, fresh towels, etc) simply indicate this via the cute little heart sign on the outside of your door.

Gorgeous room, spacious, stylish traditional decor, clean with a sea view. The staff were friendly and very helpful. The food was amazing. This hotel is a gem and we are already planning our return trip next year. We loved its location opposite the beach with views to Holy Island. The bay itself feels sheltered, we kayaked over to Holy island (kayak trips are also available). Highly recommend

Tips:

book a table for food in advance (luckily we did for each night of our stay) - its very popular and even though Arran itself was a bit quieter than usual (according to the locals) the hotel was fully booked for food in the restaurant, bar and outdoor areas.

Everything about our 7 night stay at the Lamlash Bay Hotel was excellent, the food, the service and the friendliness of the staff and owner, all of whom worked tirelessly. The view from our room 11 across to Holy Isle is outstanding. The organisation of agreed timings for breakfast worked very well for us, and because of the difficulties with ferries last week thanks to the flexibility of the staff we were able to move forward our breakfast time on our last morning to enable us to get in the ferry queue earlier, which enabled us to catch a ferry earlier than our originally booked time. We would definitely recommend the Lamlash Bay Hotel. Anne and Maurice Nicholson

19th April 2022:

We were really looking forward to this trip and anticipating a warm welcome and high standards. Unfortunately, this wasn’t to be the case. As we arrived, we had a civil, but cool/lukewarm greeting. We were told ‘the basics’ while a friend of the owner stood right behind us with no face covering. It felt like we were rushed out of the way, to allow a pals catch up. More negatives than positives, as follows; Filthy exterior/facade, which has been badly neglected and the fag ends haven't been swept up in weeks. Wood needs stained, welcome mat replaced and planters replanted! Terrible (vastly overpriced) fish dinner (with only a forkful of peas) Breakfast - rubber bacon and (cheap) anaemic sausage. Couldn't eat it. The butter foils are infuriating, as you have to pull them apart when they have been handled by your staff beforehand. Same goes for the sauces. I know this is a cost effective way to do it, but we expected individual ramekins at £200/night. Waitress at dinner came too close for comfort, given COVID times. We felt unsafe. Cheap fittings, dodgy and very loud kettle which didn't pour properly. Uncomfortable (very low) bed more like a futon and lumpy pillows. Tiny shower with bifold door. Claustrophobic!

Tips:

Expect high prices and mediocre standards, more akin to a budget B and B. The breakfast ordering system doesn't seem to work and from what I could see most clients changed their preferences when they arrived in the morning. I can see time slots working, but trying to choose your meal and tea/coffee the night before is never going to work and any good chef/breakfast team should be able to cook anything from scratch. My feeling is that the owners have lost interest and not trying hard enough to ensure repeat bookings. The grubby state of the exterior (which is the first impression one gets) speaks volumes and we never felt welcome during our stay.

Owner Response:

Dear Guests, It is so utterly disheartening to get a review like this given that this is the business that we eat sleep and breathe and have invested all our time and money into. Try being told you are, "Not trying hard enough" at the end of another 16 hour shift. Over the last few weeks we have had 8 staff off as a result of covid. This has put the remaining team under immense pressure and the aim was to stay open rather than have to close and cancel guests long awaited holidays. If anything was not up to its usual standard then I do apologise however I find some of your comments baffling. We have just painted the exterior wall of the hotel so it is white, not filthy. I think you will find that due to rocketing food, energy, labour and transport prices, the cost of meals everywhere in every establishment will go up and those that don't will sadly close. I serve most breakfasts at the hotel however on Sunday morning it was reported that a number of guests changed their order after arriving for breakfast. This is not normal, we have cut down on food waste and improved the service and waiting time which has helped us manage during a hospitality nationwide shortage of staff. I wonder if you would have found your stay to be better value if you had booked direct with the hotel which is considerably a cheaper and more flexible option or shopped around to compare prices. Reading the notes on your booking, it seems that you called to say you couldn't get a ferry booking and were disappointed that you were given options rather than a refund. At the time of booking, we always send out an email warning guests that they need to secure a ferry booking straight away if they plan to bring a car. We also send out a few eminder emails regarding ferriesd and dinner/breakfast bookings; which were unfortunately not heeded... I think at the end of the day not being able to bring your car/ having ferry issues and not being offered a refund set the mood for your stay. A local came in to discuss a group booking ( I know her name) while I was doing your check in. I said hello and she waited till I had finished. We have received lots of positive feedback on our covid protocols, even criticism for going too far at times so I'm not sure why you wanted to come at Easter weekend which is a public holiday and busy everywhere. I can see that you were genuinely not pleased with your stay and I am sorry and disappointed to hear that. The fact that you mention even the volume of the kettle and having to unwrap a butter portion suggests that in this instance maybe we couldn't have done anything right no matter how hard we tried. You mention " more negatives than positives" but don't mention any positives at all. That's ok though because all the other reviews mention more positives than negatives. Best wishes for happier travels in the future.

Owner Response:

Dear Guests, Whilst we are pleased you loved the location, found the hotel to be clean and the food spectacular, we are very dissapointed that you felt unwelcome. This is not the normal feedback we receive from guests. Over the last few weeks (which have been exceptionally busy with the Easter Holidays), we have had 8 members of staff all absent due to covid. This has left the remaining staff under immense pressure working extra days and hours trying to manage as best we could. We decided to attempt to remain open rather than cancel guest's long awaited holidays. I appologise if this left us looking rushed and stressed. On the last morning of your holiday you came to the restaurant 15 minutes before we were ready to open for breakfast. Although I explained that we weren't ready and that we couldn't serve you earlier, you proceeded to come in and said you just wanted to sit and wait. I can imagine this seemed harmless enough and you weren't to know that it would make us feel under pressure to try and get you coffee, have a chat etc when in fact we were busy checking that all the pre-orders were correct and still had jobs to complete before being ready to start. You wouldn't have known either that having finished late the night before this was the start of another 16 hour shift and that every minute counts. Having read your review, it might have been better if I had simply asked you please to stay in your room where you had a comfy seating area until opening time. We hope you are enjoying the rest of your holiday and are sorry again that you felt this way.

We stayed for three nights and found the hotel to be first class in every way. The room was comfortable, large and well-equipped, breakfasts were excellent and the dinners superb. We particularly recommend the garlic mushrooms and prawn starters and the sea bass main course. Desserts were great also - with the cheesecake our favourite. The bar is also a great place to spend some time - although it was too chilly for us to try out the outside tables! The owners were warm, helpful and welcoming and run a highly efficient establishment. We recommend the Lamlash Bay Hotel most highly and we hope to return in the future.

Our room had a spectacular view over the Holy Isle - so book early to get a front-of-hotel room. it is also important to book for dinner before one arrives - the dining room is very popular!

The location was great, our room overlooking the bay was lovely. Staff were really nice with the exception of one girl serving breakfast. The restaurant was pretty stark, bright lights and loud music. Lack of attention to detail in the furnishings- chair covers poorly fixed in making it all look tired and a bit unloved. Breakfast choice was limited and not of great quality, and the takeaway breakfast was really poor in its choice for anyone who likes healthy eating. The room tray was poor too- we have all moved on from cheap Nescafe and better attention to detail would have gone a long way.

My wife and I stayed in Room 6. The room was perfect for us lots of space with a view of the bay. . The hotel is very Covid conscious and so we were happy that the room was safe. It was very clean. The refreshments were adequate and the toiletries in the bathroom good quality and well stocked. Breakfast was great. We had the Scottish choice on two days and the small breakfast on our final day. Very filling, which set us up for our day's activities. We had an evening meal on two nights and particularly enjoyed the sea bass. There was a good choice of wine, beer and spirits. We had a drink in the bar too. We found the staff very friendly, helpful and efficient. The management had a couple of problems to deal with while we were there with the heating and the fire alarm which they sorted quickly; this did not reduce the enjoyment of our stay. Big thanks to all of the staff and look forward to coming again.

Just go..... Friendly staff, clean, spacious rooms, good food, excellent selection of refreshments. Good view of the bay, a Coop next door, a general store across the road and a motor engineers nearby, ten minutes from the ferry port and the main town of Brodick.

Really enjoyed our stay, staff were very friendly. Special thank you to Paul who attended to all our needs at breakfast and dinner. Nothing was too much trouble. We stayed in Room 1 which was spotless, also had a balcony which looked out at Lamlash beach.

Tips:

Lovely wee unique shops in Lamlash, if you are looking for a wee gift to remind you of your stay. I would recommend Island Porcelain and Janelle’s. Both ladies in the shops very friendly and helpful. In Brodick I would recommend Crofters, sampled Arran coffee there and am hooked. Very tasty…. Brodick also had lovely wee gift shops, such as The Red Door and Inspirations of Arran.

We stayed initially for 2 nights but then added an extra night (due to ferry issues) but were so happy to do so. We loved everything about this hotel - the room was stunning and spotless, the wee pub in the hotel was gorgeous, the restaurant was absolutely amazing!!! Definitely book dinner as it is very popular. The staff are so friendly and helpful especially as we really needed their help when our ferry got cancelled but nothing was too much trouble. Loved it and hope to stay again.

Tips:

Pre book the restaurant for dinner as it is very popular. The hotel is in the perfect location right on the water. It has a co-op right next door if u have forgotten anything, it’s only minutes drive from Brodick Ferry, it has a lovely wee pub in the hotel but there is also a few pubs walking distance along the street as well as another lovely restaurant called The Drift Inn.

The location was perfect with tremendous views across to the Holy Isle and only a short distance from the ferry at Brodick. The staff were so friendly & welcoming and everywhere was beautifully clean and well maintained. An excellent breakfast every morning set us up for the day - vegan & vegetarian options were provided for at breakfast & dinner.

Tips:

There are a number of different places to eat in Lamlash itself - booking ahead is advised everywhere but with online booking available this is unproblematic. We travelled around the whole island during our stay & even out of season it is possible to find little coffee shops etc. Brodick castle & the heritage museum are good places to visit if the weather is wet!

Tips:

They took money off our card beginning of our stay which was different as you usually settle up at the end of your stay. We paid for drinks and food as we went along. Free parking anywhere. The Drift Inn was a good place to eat further along the coast(within walking distance) and The Old Byre. WThe Old Byre was en route of round island trip.

This was a return visit to a great little family-run hotel right on the main street overlooking the bay in a wonderful little seaside village. Friendly and welcoming owners and staff. Excellent, reasonably-priced restaurant and small, cosy bar with some outside seating. Booking a table is advised. Food can also be served in the bar. The public areas and rooms are spotlessly clean, comfortable and well furnished. The hotel has no car park but there are two free public car parks a short walk from the hotel where you can safely leave your car (but no overnight parking for motorhomes, caravans or camper vans).

Tips:

Lamlash is a small village. There is a small supermarket near the hotel, a hardware/general store, a pharmacy and a couple of gift shops and tearooms. If you want to eat somewhere other than the hotel, the Pierhead Tavern pub serves good food and the nearby Drift Inn restaurant is excellent, but a little more expensive. There is an Indian takeaway restaurant. There is also another hotel with restaurant in the village. Booking tables at all of them is advised as they can get very busy. There are hourly (approximately) buses to the main town of Brodick and the rest of the island (timetables change with seasons).

I was super impressed with this hotel. We went to hotel hours before check in to ask if we could leave our bags but we were told our room was ready. The room itself, No 11 was really lovely, beautifully clean with amazing views over Holy Isle. Because we had our small dog with us we needed to eat in the bar. Again beautifully decorated. The first evening we ate off of the main menu. It was very nice. Next evening we ordered from their pizza menu. Pizzas were delicious. Breakfast on both mornings was very good too. All staff were friendly and chatty. It wasn't easy booking a slot for dinner and you had to book your time for breakfast too. I think this is because of staff shortages. Also because they're very busy and because of covid restrictions. I definitely intend to book this hotel again.

Tips:

We didn't take our car this time as the hotel is a 10 minute bus ride from the ferry and busses are timed with the ferry. However, I think to fully appreciate Arran you do need a car.

We had a very pleasant couple of nights here. However to be honest the room we had (Room 11) was very small and, in our opinion, very overpriced for what it was. Unfortunately it didn't help that on our last night next door was occupied by somebody who spent half the night banging doors & got up very noisily at 5am to walk what sounded like a dog. Saying that the staff were very pleasant and breakfast was OK - although a little bland.

Tips:

Lamlash is a very attractive area. We would highly recommend booking Alex and the Mogabout Safari Tour if you want to see some of the hard to get places on the island, and the Drift Inn is the best pub/restaurant in the village if you want good, freshly cooked food with a great atmosphere.

Delicious meals (breakfast and dinner), well-stocked bar and a wonderful location. All of our niggles were dealt with expertly, for example we found our mattress to be really hard and we were provided with an extra duvet to lie on and a camper bed so that we could spread out. My husband has a bad back and a wonderful gentleman made sure he had a cushion ready for him at every meal. All staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Would not hesitate to recommend this hotel.

Incredibly warm welcome, despite arriving 90 minutes sooner than expected our room was ready. Room was spot on - we stayed in room 9 having booked fairly late. Cleanliness of the room (and entire hotel) made us feel very safe in these difficult covid times....View of Holy Isle from our room was stunning. Description of the room was accurate - it was a small double, but perfect in every way and we enjoyed the novelty of staying in a room with eaves. Food was excellent - good choice for breakfast and extensive range of menu for dinner. Quality and choice of dishes were in a class of their own, especially when compared to other local restaurants (which had limited menus). Good selection of wines to accompany the wide menu and not at all pricey. Bar was comfy, again with a great selection including local beer, whiskey and gin (look for the offers on the blackboard). We will definitely be back.

Tips:

Make sure you book evening meals and bar slots well in advance as some places in Lamlash don't open every day meaning space is limited. We enjoyed golf and horse riding in Blackwaterfoot/Shiskine (30 mins drive); as well as some great short walks with ample parking including Glen Rosa (Brodick), Kings Caves (Blackwaterfoot) and Glenashdale falls (Whiting Bay) as well as the longer coastal route.

We have previously stayed here before and we’re looking forward to staying again. We’re not disappointed and to our surprise and delight, we’re provided with a bottle of wine as being retuning visitors. We stayed in Room 3 which has its own balcony which just adds to the room and hotel. Any food we have had from breakfast to dinner was first class and as a pizza lover, they certainly do not disappoint. Staff and owners all very friendly and helpful. Only thing to really say is, looking forward to our next visit.

Tips:

Lamlash is a lovely place to stay and eat with a small but good choice to have a drink or eat. Venture round the island, it is stunning. We were lucky enough to see a pod of dolphins but still to tick off seeing seals but hopefully next time.

Great hotel, room 9 had great views and was perfect for our stay. Spotlessly clean throughout. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend to anyone. Only point I would say was bar staff was a hit and miss. Some very friendly, others were quite dry and short. Restaurant staff questioned why I challenged bill when we were charged for something twice, although eventually took it off the bill. Staff could be more welcoming and definitely not challenge customers when overcharging.

Hello, Thank you for your kind comments on our hotel and we are pleased you had a great stay. I am so sorry to hear that you found some staff to be short. These are not the kind of comments we are used to receiving. I also apologise that you felt challenged over a bill in which you were overcharged. I will follow up on this matter. We have always credited our staff as being our biggest asset. I know that due to staff shortages ( nationwide) the pressure on those left in the industry coupled with the stress of the pandemic which everyone has had to endure is naturally taking its toll. We are so glad to be open and busy again but are sorry if we lacked in our usual hospitality.

Good location for walking and cycling. Book restaurants well in advance as we struggled to get in anywhere for evening meals. Food was a little expensive but all very good. Walk up to Goat Fell is worth doing and path is easy to find. We were lucky enough to see some dolphins when we were cycling on the coast road between Brodick and Corrie.

We visited the art gallery in Whiting Bay and also the Coffee Cup cafe which was lovely. We did putting as well. It’s not very obvious that it’s open but there’s an honesty box and putters and balls are available to use. We discovered a beautiful stretch of coast walk just opposite Corrie golf club and enjoyed a lovely lunch at the tearoom there afterwards. Have to recommend the cakes at Machrie golf club too!

Absolutely loved our stay here. Such a warm and friendly hotel with excellent facilities. Very clean rooms and extremely comfortable and cosy. We did have a problem with our shower but this was dealt with quickly and no further problems. The views from our rooms (6 and 11) are to die for. The food is wonderful and we noticed that the restaurant is always booked out not just by residents but also by members of the public. We did go to another hotel for a meal on one of our nights and really wish we hadn’t as it wasn’t a patch on this hotel. We will be back to Arran and we certainly won’t be staying anywhere else. Wonderful hotel!!!! 😍

Tips:

Machrie Moor Standing Stones are definitely worth a visit. The Old Byre Visitor Centre is great for a bite to eat, do a bit of shopping and also has a good play area for children. If you like whisky both Arran Distillery and Lagg Distillery do tours and tastings. We would recommend the whisky and chocolate tasting at Arran Distillery. We would however advise you not to try The Glenisle Hotel for a meal as we found it inedible. They do have a lovely garden to sit and have a drink though.

We had a lovely stay at the Lamlash Bay Hotel. Mattresses were a bit lumpy but otherwise a great hotel. Lamlash is a lovely wee village. Would thoroughly recommend the hotel.

We had a wonderful time at the Lamlash Hotel. Room 4 was fabulous. The breakfast was superb. We ate in the hotel two nights and the food was excellent. My thanks to the restaurant team who were friendly helpful and the chef who adapted my diet. We hope to be back soon.

I have been at lamlash hotel about 2 years ago. It is family run and the family are lovely. This is one of the reasons I went back. The staff coped so well with the outbreak of Covid and the rising numbers of staff having to isolate on the island making the other establishments close for food. We were very lucky we managed to have breakfast and evening meal. The staff were always wearing their masks. The hotel had sanitisers and mandatory for visitors and guests to wear masks. The room was lovely and clean and we opted to just have towels changed and bins changed where needed as stayed 4 nights. The staff were brilliant and all very hard working. We felt sad when we left. The view onto the lamlash bay was lovely and we had great weather. Highly recommended.

Tips:

Was difficult as all the restaurants were closing down due to lack of staff. I would recommend the lamlash bay for dinner. We ate there 4 nights and food was lovely. Usually the drift inn as well. Closed for food just now but pen for drinks an both great again with lovely view onto the bay. There is a wee putting green if feel like it to the right of the hotel. Brodick only 7 min away in the car and crazy golf. And lunch at the Little Rock cafe amd an outdoor shop here as well. I would recommend getting a sea view room if you can. It is worth the extra money and if stay more than 2 nights you get a discount.

Room2. Shower cubicle is small and lacks hand rails. Perhaps you may consider putting a non-slip mat in the shower and also, you may consider suppling face cloths.

Tips:

Book early for dinner. Forget the sea fishing.

Hotel was very clean and well organised for COVID protection for both staff and guests. Staff were all very helpful and friendly. Food is of good quality. I have lost count of the number of hotels that I have stayed in during my working life but this is the only one that serves guests coffee at breakfast which is made fresh from an espresso machine. That's a Gold Star from me!

We had the lovely Room 1 with a balcony and fabulous views. The room was spotless and very comfortable. Menu choices for breakfast and dinner were all we needed and the food was lovely and fresh. One of our favourite wines also happened to feature. Thank you for also arranging surprisingly sunny and warm weather.
