We had a fantastic stay my partner loved it for her birthday treat. All the food we had at the hotel was so tasty and fresh. The staff were all very good Isla and the male waiter who's name I've forgotten sorry. The only negative was the coffee in the room nescafe is so outdated on tea/coffee trays and uht milk yeuck. A coffee machine like a nespresso or dolce gusto would be better and fresh milk. But that's just personal preference. Everything else was fantastic.

Tips:

Enjoy your stay here the food is good and the breakfast is also super filling.

I stayed before and never had these issues, but in my most recent stay, I found room 4 freezing as the radiator wasn't working, and even if it were, it is behind a curtain. I had to get a local friend to bring me a hot water bottle and heater to heat the massive room. The Wi-Fi wasn't working; the TV only showed terrestrial TV and the shower trickled out water. Thankfully, the breakfast was amazing, as always.

Owner Response:

Thank you for returning to the hotel once again, we really appreciate your custom and we are sorry this experience fell short. We shall ensure the radiators are turned up in ample time for your next arrival, it sounds like they hadn't warmed up enough when you arrived and its been super chilly this January, you should not have to bring your own hot water bottle, but your friend sounds very kind! We will ensure the team double check the room temperatures on check-in to avoid this happening again. I have checked myself today and everything is toasty & warm so sincere apologies' for your blip! We only have regular tv in the rooms at the moment, but this is good feedback to know guests may need more choice. The showers have a high pressure and an 'Eco' mode, we will make sure to point this out to guests to avoid any more 'trickles'....There is nothing worse! We couldn't detect any problems with the Wifi, but the team should always on hand if you need any help at any time, so please let us know if everything isn't perfect any time you stay with us so we can fix it there and then. Could you let me know if you book again so I can personally make sure everything is just right for you Joanna?

Another great stay this weekend, we were lucky to book one of the suites with a balcony at the front of the hotel which gave us a great view of the fireworks and bonfire on Saturday night. We got chatting to our neighbours on the other balcony and all had a great night. We've stayed here a few times now and we always look forward to staying again!

Tips:

If available try and book a balcony suite as the views are amazing!

Lovely welcome from Isla and the rest of the team, we felt welcome from the moment we crossed the threshold of the place. Isla helped me with my luggage as I've ot been too well lately and we were taken to our room at the top of the place. The view was breathtaking and the room although compact had everything we needed although the bed and the duvet were a little smaller than we are used to. The Hotel bar was tastefully done out and the ornaments, wallpaper, pictures were very much to our liking and was a nice relaxed place to retire to after a day's walking. We used to have our last drink there then retire to bed. The restaurant was usually full showing how popular it was with residents and passers by also. We ate here twice during our 4 night stay and the food was superb. I had the pork and seaweed sausages one night and pulled pork pizza the next. My wife had Sea bass and prawns one night and the Blade of beef the next. All in all the experience was lovely and we would happily come again.

Tips:

We came over to the Isle on foot and found the buses to be timeous. We went into Brodick one day on the 323 but were quite disappointed as there wasn't much there apart from the marvellous view so we were happy to get back to Lamlash as quickly as possible. I would suggest bringing a car as we were quite restricted as to venturing out. We loved Lamlash and if you are happy with quiet bars, one very good cafe, lots of dogs, also a lovely long promenade to walk up and down and take in the great view of Holy Isle then this is the place for you. We came because we had never been to the Scottish Isles before and this was the easiest to get to from Sale. We came by train via Glasgow, Ardrossan, Brodick.

1. Why not include some salads in your dinner menu - perhaps chicken caesar salad & a few others would be nice to choose from. 2. It would be nice to have a selection of teas being offered in the bedrooms, rather than just being offered normal tea. (However, I brought my own tea with me to make sure I could have what I wanted)! It would be nice to have larger bath towels, yet I am only small in size! Apart from the above, I can't fault the hotel. Thank you for a nice stay! :)

Tips:

Recommend a visit to Arran Heritage Museum, friendly, helpful and welcoming staff, lots of interesting Arran history and brilliant cafe too. Brodick Castle & Gardens well worth a day out. There were plenty of interest for children and adults all day long. All facilities excellent. Visit to King's Caves and Machrie Stones well worth the effort but check on what else might be open on your route first. Will certainly come back to Arran.

The hotel has maintained a high standard for a number of years. The plants/ weeds at the front need tidied up and a knife for your side plate at breakfast would mean you didn’t get egg yolk in your butter and jam on your toast. These are very minor points and overall everything was clean, the food was good and the staff were very friendly. Ross and Grace were great. Meg the owner is very pleasant as well and you just can’t beat the views from the hotel. It is a shame it is for sale as the current owners both do a great job and I wish them well for their future.

Tips:

Young guy at check in, bar, restaurant , breakfast and check out was excellent. First class attitude. Food was 10/10 and view stunning- definitely visit again. Only thing to consider- EV charging point- one at Drift Inn didn't work.

What a wonderful stay. We had spectacular forest cycles, no take zone snorkels and a lovely cosy room to retreat to. We were fueled by the best breakfast we've had in a long time...generous and cooked to perfection.. The hotel is a great social space...snug pub and lively restaurant. The staff are the best. Thank you!

Tips:

The Octopus centre is a really moving account of a communities fight to save their marine environment from destructive fishing methods. There's a really high quality interactive exhibition. The hotel is slap bang between that and the recommended snorkel trail sites. We saw relaxed flatfish, the biggest brown crab I have ever seen and gobies, star fish and wrasse...amazing! Just watch out for the seals...they need at least 100m distance to feel safe. Wonderful to see them hauled out stretching and relaxing in the sun along with herons and oyster catchers. Thank you Lamlash bay hotel for being so perfectly positioned.

We had a wonderful 3 nights stay at the hotel. We stayed in room 1, which is a large, bright, comfortable room with the benefit of a lovely balcony and great views of the bay, Holy Island and beyond. It's a good idea to choose a time for breakfast and to pre-order what we wanted as everything was ready for us in the morning. We enjoyed a meal at the hotel and enjoyed sitting on our balcony watching the sun go down. All the staff were very friendly and helpful and we would definitely recommend the hotel to other travellers. We look forward to our next stay at the Lamlash Bay Hotel.

Hotel bar and restaurant very busy reflecting the excellent food and atmosphere - breakfasts excellent also Big credit should go to the staff who exceeded expectations - all went out of their way to deliver an excellent experience and always friendly . Special shout out to young man from Kilmarnock ( sorry did not get his name ) - he started his employment this week and was excellent - a credit to the business - cannot wait to return

Owner Response:

Hello Raymond, I am pleased I had the opportunity to follow up on your issue after your stay. At around 8pm you had an issue with a toilet cistern that wasn't flushing properly resulting in a running water noise. The hotel was full so there was no option to move you to another room so I tried the next solution which was to fix the problem. One of the staff had come to see if there was anything he could do and suggested you keep your bathroom door closed for the noise. Miraculously I found a plumber who could come out at 10.30pm but you had informed us that you were tired and didn't want to be disturbed. The plumber came at 8am instead and had the issue fixed in minutes whilst you had breakfast. We are a small business and don't have a live in plumber, some people wait months on the island to get a plumber so I put it to you that under the circumstances we had done our best. Despite the wonderful comments we receive about the staff, I think you were disappointed that although both my husband were both working on your arrival day and departure day( the following morning) we weren't present to deal with you personally and the 2 stars are directed at us rather than our staff. We have reached out to you over this problem as our guest experience is what drives us to succeed in our business. Being on Four in a Bed has been wonderful for the hotel. We didn't apply to go on the show, they called us due to a cancellation, we agreed and filming commenced the next day. It was very much what you see is what you get. Although the show brought lots of new guests, our excellent reviews date back prior to the show and in the 8 years we have been running the hotel we have been consistently busy with good feedback. So " Living off Four in a Bed " is not accurate as we have enjoyed a long success on Arran. When we spoke on the phone I asked you how you found the room which was decorated only a year ago. You said you were happy with the room. When I asked you about breakfast and thanked you for dining with us the night before you said the food was good and the staff pleasant but that we were very busy and short staffed. ( We discussed hospitality wise this is the case country wide and you lived in a tourist area and understood the challenges). Although we are sorry to hear that you wouldn't recommend us I am glad to establish that you did enjoy some elements of your stay. When probed on where exactly you thought lots of money needed spending ( we continually work and have done much to upgrade the hotel) you said we had lost our kerbside appeal and that the front looked poor and shabby. Our planters were in the process of being painted and the inner pots removed for the new bedding plants going in. You said we should have had that done by now but I explained that on the island the new bedding plants are only arriving now into the garden shops. I reflected on what you saw and thought and put up signs to say "planters in progress" to avoid other people thinking we have given up on our business! You can try to find a Superior Room with a 4 poster bed, panelled wall painted with Farrow and Ball paint, comfy seating area, on the sea front facing the Holy Isle with a restaurant serving great food and a cosy well stocked bar on site for half the price but you won't. Kind regards

Arran’s hidden gem! Visiting Arran, this is a must go to hotel. Both quaint and quirky it welcomes you in with open arms. Each member of staff will go out of their way to have a wee chat, to have a laugh with you and to make sure your every need is met. One lady with blonde hair, who sings as she works ( and she works hard and sings well ) was particularly helpful and genuinely interested to find out how our day had gone. For us those special little things in the hotel meant a lot. We were celebrating our Silver Wedding Anniversary, with one of us being very ill and not being able to travel for a long time this wee break was much needed and the staff here made sure we enjoyed our stay. The hotel is spotless, with hints of the Scottish humour scattered throughout. The decor is homely and modern. With local artists displaying their works on their walls, and local artisan businesses all part of the running of the hotel - from butchers to bathroom luxuries - it just works! Having tried the local ‘resort’ menu, I can say the food at The Lamlash Bay hotel is not only better value for money but much tastier. Finally, the setting - you cannae beat it! Thank you to all at Lamlash Bay Hotel. See you soon!

Tips:

The view of the Holy Isle is superb from this hotel, with boat trips direct from the bay. The location has a great transport link with bus stops just meters from the hotel. Check all timetables though as there can be a wait between buses at the other side of the island.

Dear Guests, we are indeed dog friendly! At times there are no dogs and at other times there are a few rooms with dogs. Having the bar and restaurant separate and only allowing dogs in the bar allows us to serve food in both areas whereby people who prefer to eat not around dogs can do so. We aim to please both groups and of course clean between guests. We are proud of our cleanliness scoring across multiple review sites. Thanks for your 5 star review, we hope to see you again soon!

Meg and Serge are there to welcome you and as owners, very visible. Good choice of food on the dinner menu and always delicious. Special mention for the porridge in the morning, best I have tasted anywhere! Rooms are well appointed...although a chocolate biscuit/ shortbread on the tea tray wouldn't go amiss! Replenishing the bottles of water would be a nice touch too.

Tips:

Book a sea facing room as the view over to the Holy Isle is just magnificent! Enjoy a drink in the bar, no need to go anywhere else, friendly, great service and book a table in advance if you want a specific time. Just enjoy the island, so much to see and do. Use the public transport too, great way to travel around the island.

Great prices too. Would highly recommend Lamlash Bay. We will certainly return. Thank you to the entire team for a wonderful break from Pauline, Derek, Margaret and Ian.

Tips:

Book early for dinner. We stayed in two rooms one with a small balcony with panoramic view and the other with a dual aspect view. The latter was larger and had lovely sea views too. Have a few drinks in the bar at night, the staff are great fun and attentive. Prices very competitive.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Room 10 and the beautiful view of Holy Isle and the beach. The room was spotless with a spacious ensuite. There was no faffing about trying to regulate the shower, which can be a real pain when you are extremely short-sighted! The staff were courteous, friendly and attentive. Although we had breakfast every morning, my one regret was that we only dined in the hotel on the final evening of our three night stay. Dinner was excellent, had we known the high standard of catering, we would have dined in every night. We adjourned later to the bar which had lovely big comfortable easy chairs. This was our first visit to the Lamlash Bay Hotel but will not be our last.

Tips:

Room 10 is at the top of the building accessed by stairs, so not suitable if you have mobility issues but when you get to the top the view from the window is fabulous.

Amazing stay at Lamlash Bay Hotel. The location is stunning and the staff are attentive and friendly, the food is fabulous and the beds are super comfy. They took amazing care of me and I was so sad to leave, but I'll definitely be back.

Tips:

I can recommend the signature dish of pan fried seabass and the pizzas, delicious! Breakfast menu is also fabulous. Have a pre breakfast walk on the beach. If you're a foot passanger, use the calmac website, they have a journey planner to help you coordinate buses and ferries.

Warm and friendly welcome, and very efficient restaurant service. The allocated time slot for breakfast and evening meal works really well, with minimal waiting time and delicious warm, freshly made food.

Tips:

Watch out for Calmac, can't believe that they tie up ships since they were unable to adequately tie down my motorcycle for a relatively calm crossing back to Ardrossan.

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.

I would definitely recommend!

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.

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

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!!

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.

Tips:

Some Rooms on top floor have limited headroom around the edges, arguably adds to character as long as you don't bash your head

room was not hoovered during our 3 nights stay - bottled water only once there are not enough hooks to hang beds could be a bit firmer but staff friendly , good breakfast

Tips:

front rooms have nice view but can be noisy because of the common grounds at the waterfront climb Goat Fell - it's worth the effort. Route through valley harder and longer , not recommended if not fit.

Where so I start with this hotel It is outstanding, the location and view is the main reason I booked this hotel ,it is stunning, secondly the food it amazing , I just can't get over how wonderful it is and the staff they are so friendly and welcoming I just can't rate this place highly enough everything d perfect even the bar and the choice in the bar 100% for me . No wonder they won 4 in a bed They are top notch .

Tips:

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.

Tips:

There's a Co-op store next to the hotel, handy for a sandwich/drink at lunchtime to enjoy on one of the many benches just opposite the hotel and take in the views.

A lovely warm welcome and a beautiful view over to Holy Island. The room was well laid out and comfortable. Whilst booking breakfast times required some prior planning, it avoided delays (previous day we missed breakfast elsewhere because of the wait and we had a ferry to catch). All staff were friendly and helpful. Loved the idea that the Postman doubled up as an evening chef a couple of times a week. Great base for seeing this beautiful island.

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.

Highly recommend Eggs Benedict for breakfast! The team continue to observe safety procedures, even although masks are now longer compulsory.

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

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.

Tips:

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.

Tips:

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.

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!

The stone man (whins craft workshop) is a must with beautiful views up the hill at Lochranza- a bit of a walk and cash only but worth the visit. Also loved watching the seals at Kildonan.

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. Brodick Castle and gardens definitely worth a visit.

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).

Served with a smile by waiting on staff. Porridge outstanding. We ate in the restaurant one evening and found the meal was very good and good value. Also had an excellent Negroni in the bar.

Tips:

Have a meal at the Brodick Bar and Brasserie if you can during your stay. You can catch a bus up there from Lamlash. Its an Arran must do in our opinion.

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.

I would have liked a more powerful shower.

Pay a little extra for a balcony room with beautiful views of the sea and Holy Island. Great walk to Brodick - follow the round Arran guide and make sure that you take the 'climb' route.

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.
