Staff are excellent and made us feel very welcome. Room and bathroom clean, spacious and comfortable. Great location, close to town but far enough away from main road to be quiet during the day. Lovely outside space sheltered by the trees with views over Brodick Bay and Castle and up to Goat Fell and Glen Rosa.

Tips:

Food at the Ormidale is always great, large portions and very good specials. Walking distance to Co-op and beach and short driving distance to all places on the island including our favourites Blackwaterfoot and Cladach.

Such a beautiful family run hotel. I go every year and it never disappoints. I stayed in a single room, very clean and comfortable with everything you need, breakfast was also excellent. I also had an evening meal which was also delicious. The staff are all lovely, friendly and go out of their way to make you feel welcome. I honestly wouldn’t go anywhere else.

Tips:

I would definitely recommend a visit to the Ormidale to stay, food or even a wee dram, the Brodick bar and Arran Botanical are great if you fancy a cocktail or 2 also. A walk up goatfell is a must for anyone visiting the island, Glen Rosa or even Brodick castle I’d highly recommend a walk to. So many beautiful places to visit while on the island.

I think hotel should update their pictures on booking because in reality rooms are much better. Only thing was the WiFi problem that was not working in the room, only in first floor and there was no signal for our internet. Otherwise everything was perfect. Thank you

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Ormidale. Trevor, Laura and all the team were friendly, helpful and gave excellent service. Superb food and excellent ales. We certainly didn't starve!The Ormidale is full of character with an interesting history, and there was plenty of entertainment every night with Trevor's quizzes and music nights. Never a dull moment! Something for everybody.

Tips:

Arran is a beautiful island with plenty to see and do whether you enjoy walking , cycling or simply sitting and looking at the views. Brodick has an excellent chocolate shop, brewery , cheese shop, and Arran Aromatics - all worth a visit , as well as the distilleries at Lochranza and Lagg. The Heritage Museum is a little gem, and Brodick Castle is also worth a visit.

Tips:

The surrounding environment of the island is enough without further distractions....so many good walks on various levels if you can't manage the mountains.If you can, the view from Goat fell summit is worth the effort. The castle gardens are beautiful and the standing stones of Machrie moor are impressive.

The team at the hotel were really friendly and worked very hard to look after all guests. The table service was absolutely the best we’ve had in years and made us feel really relaxed. Our family room was just what we needed and we had the most amazing sleep, really struggling to get down for breakfast! We could hear the bar but it was no problem at all. The room was cosy, clean and had a lovely view.. We really enjoyed the evening quizzes. We would definitely return. Thank you for a lovely stay.

As pre warned I could hear the noise from the kitchen and bar below until midnight or so but it wasn't too bad. The room was lovely - very clean and nice quirky decor. Hotel itself was full of character as you'd expect from a victorian property. Saw others had commented that the bar smelled old - it did but that's part of the authentic charm of the place. The tofu fried breakfast was delicious- honestly best I've ever tasted.

Great to stay here again. Been coming since the 80s and delighted to see it’s still run by the family. The rooms were very comfortable- especially the bed: firm and a good length for tall travellers. The food is delicious and very reasonably priced. Would and do recommend The Ormidale as the best place to stay in Brodick.

Arran always surprises us with new places to visit. This time I did a bucket list and walk the 2 miles up in the hills and swam in the lochin near Thunderguy. Very very cold but glad I did it!

The breakfast on offer was amazing (from a slice of toast, to porridge, cereals, fresh fruit, creme fraiche eggs whichever way, fish, cheese, all very tasty and well presented. The hotel is surrounded by a mature garden including lots of outside seating. There is even a rope swing where we noticed other guests and visitors having fun. There is also an amazing glasshouse where you can have dinner. Of an evening the hotel puts on entertainment including name the singer of the song, music bingo and general knowledge. I believe there is music on a Friday but we were gone before this. In fact myself and a few other guests were in our 60's and not bothered with any noise. Myself and my friend enjoyed coming back from our evening walk and joined in the evening competition, and had suooer before going to bed. Would not hesitate to recommend. WE HAD FUN..

Tips:

We brought a car over which allowed us to drive round the Island and stop wherever we fancied however there are plenty of buses to so you can still get around the island. Its not unusual to see ottors or seals on the way. The Castle I would say is a fantastic and well worthwhile visit. For a Top Class steak dinner and surrounds you can eat at the Brambles in Auchrannie Resort. Keep your bank account topped up for that... We came back with beautiful gifts, cheeses, dundee cake chutney, olives, candles, soaps , perfume and more..

This hotel is definitely the place to go. The food was excellent,the room comfortable, the staff very friendly and the evenings were buzzing .Entertainment in the form of quizzes. Very entertaining. The locals obviously enjoy the hotel too.Every evening was busy with all ages.

Tips:

The hotel is situated just off the main road from the ferry port. There are plenty of places to visit,Brodick Castle & Gardens,the Heritage Museum,and if you like walking ,a walk up Goatfell.(not for the faint hearted )is a must. There s plenty of geological sites on the island and lovely bays. The lovely thing is nowhere is overcrowded with tourists ,you can enjoy all the places at you own pace.

What a wonderful place to stay! The Ormidale couldn't be more , it's a perfect base for exploring Brodick and the rest of Arran. The staff were incredibly helpful and welcoming. The room was clean and spacious and I loved the eco tissues/toiletries -a nice touch! I also loved having the pub downstairs which serves great food (plenty of veggie/vegan options too) as well as having a lovely buzz and atmosphere. It's really nice to come back after a long day and eat, drink and sleep all in one location. I can't wait to come back!

Tips:

If you're staying at the Ormidale you have to go downstairs for the quiz and bingo nights! I had such a giggle, everyone was very warm and welcoming and I had plenty of chats with local folk at the bar (this is a real treat as a traveller as it can sometimes be hard to chat to people in the local community) There's so much to do on Arran that it's hard to recommend just one thing to do or see but a quiz/bingo night is definitely up there!

Lovely location. The room was very nice and clean, I asked for clean towels every day as I have an allergy condition, this was no problem to the staff. Breakfasts are great, especially if you are going out for a long walk. Seating outside and glass house very good. We did not go to any of the entertainment in the bar so cannot comment. Ate in restaurant once and the fish and scampi were lovely.

Tips:

Only downside to the hotel was the fact we could not get WIFI in the room but I realise this is typical for the islands. Crofters bar had good food and music. Beach bar was lovely and relaxing. Goatsfell walk (approx. 6 hours walk) Corrie for unusual stones 2 Distilleries worth a visit and Arran brewery Arran ice cream good

The best pub in Brodick! Kind and helpful hosts, beautiful gardens, small but lovely comfy room, great food - exceptional breakfast! Really hope to return.

Tips:

Would recommend Wooleys of Arran for snack food - the best pies we’ve had in all Scotland! We ate at Crofters where there was wonderful live music - food was very good but a little over-priced, we felt. Arran distillery tour at Lochranza was very informative, as was the Arran brewery tasting - both were fun! Obviously, the walking on Arran is wonderful. There are lots of signed routes. However, be aware that the Coastal Way path in not well marked in places.

Very friendly helpful staff. Room was very clean with good bed and shower. (A hook on the door and bigger sink would make it perfect). It's a lovely old building with nice decor. Unfortunately it is creaky - this might be fine most of the time but unfortunately my neighbour seemed to be a very early riser which was the only real downside of my stay. I wasn't bothered by any noise from the bar (which I was warned about) as it closed around my bedtime. Excellent large traditional breakfasts (some extra veg might be appreciated). Meals in the bar/conservatory are also large and tasty, and much more affordable than some on offer in the village. Great beer and whisky selection. Enjoyed the quiz and relaxed local atmosphere. Location is convenient for drivers and good walkers - 10 mins walk from coop and restaurants, 5 mins from bus stop up a lane.

Tips:

Goatfell can be climbed directly from Brodick. Glen Rosa route is much more interesting than the direct route, but be prepared for some scrambling! Good tours at Lochranza distillery.

Tips:

The Isle of Arran is a walkers paradise with easy accessible routes even to the top of Goat Fell, which is the highest peak. There is a good local bus service for those that do not have their own transport. The Island makes it a good day trip venue catching the early and returning via last ferry to spend all day exploring the island. Plenty of local amenities to explore

A lovely friendly family-run hotel in a beautiful setting.

I got the impression that quite a few locals eat and drink there as well.

A hotel must have comfy beds, a good shower and be clean. The Ormidale does all these in spades, but what sets it above the rest is the friendly welcome and service from Laura, Trevor and their team. You are made to feel immediately at home and are very well looked after. Nothing is too much trouble for them. On top of that the setting is beautiful yet still very conveniently located for everything in Brodick, and they have complimented the beauty of the original building with a new dining area and quirky decor. They have put time, money and care into the hotel as much as they do their guests, and it shows. Trevor also lays on entertaining quizzes and music bingo in the evenings too and this is the bar the locals come to, so you know you are in the right place. We have stayed at 3 places in Brodick, and without doubt this would be my first choice to go back to.

Tips:

You will already be staying at the beating heart of Brodick, Trevor and the team put on fun quizzes and the like in the evenings in the bar, so you don't need to worry about finding anywhere else for evening entertainment and drink The food is also very good so you don't need to leave at all (with a beautiful setting outside if the weather is nice). If we do wish to venture out then the pizzas at The Parlour are also worth sampling.

Lots of country and seaside walks very close to the hotel, with information in the hotel or from the Tourist Office.

Lovely setting ,in a woodland but a short walk to the seafront ! Few seconds drive from the ferry ! Wonderful food and plenty of it !good choice of food at breakfast and in the evening ! Very dog friendly , so much so that we are able to eat breakfast in the bar area , with the dog with us , so we don’t have to leave her anywhere ! Lovely room , very comfortable and clean ! We’ve been a couple of times before , and would definitely go back again !

Tips:

We bought the little walking booklet from arran active shop on the seafront , which gave us some good walks managable for us !we stopped a bit longer this time which gave us chance to do a bit more !(and the weather was kind once again which helped )! Glen Rosa , Glen Sannox,goat fell ,lamlash whiting bay ,glen ash dale falls ,Lochranza !some lovely cafes for a coffee stop afterwards ! Little Rock cafe on Brodick seafront ,the coffee pot cafe in whiting bay! Both lovely and very dog friendly !

Great pub hotel, very good value, very friendly & helpful staff, lovely breakfast, convenient location in Brodick. Evening meals in the pub or conservatory are ‘pub meals’, beautifully cooked and huge quantities. Incredible attention to cleanliness & masking up for Covid. Good for couples or families. Large beer garden & a couple of swings in the corner for kids. Their usual pub quizzes & music nights were not able to be held due to the Covid restrictions.

Tips:

If you are looking for more fine dining (& more expensive) there are 3 or 4 other hotels/restaurants within walking distance. Beach is within easy walking distance, cycle hire, putting & crazy golf. More serious golf course right next to the hotel.

Just Stayed at the Ormidale for a long weekend. Had a beautiful room with a double bed, lovely clean, nice view over the garden. Breakfast was great too with a good selection of choices. I also had a meal with a friend of mine one evening, I had the mac and cheese and she had the Chilli, big portions, absolutely delicious. Staff were lovely, friendly and helpful doing a fantastic job especially with the current situation as well, got everything very organised and most importantly I felt safe the whole time I was there. Well done guys see u all again next year.

Tips:

The Ormidale is definitely the best place for a meal, drink, quiz night and the disco. I’d also recommend the Douglas hotel, The Brodick Bar, Brodick Club is also a great place. If you like walking Goatfell is definitely a must when going to Arran and Glen Rosa.

The staff and locals are very friendly, so if you are travelling alone, making new pals is easy. The landscape with its beaches and snow capped mountains are beautiful and easily accessible. The bar offers a range of homemade food, which are very generous and reasonable priced. I would definitely recommend The Ormindale Hotel.

We had vouchers for Auchrannie one night, and stayed in Ormidale the other night. Despite being a good bit less expensive, we preferred the Ormidale - the rooms were much bigger than Auchrannie, and it was a nicer atmosphere (less 'corporate'...). The Ormidale rooms are big, clean, and modern, and the owners/staff very friendly. Breakfast was lovely. We've recommended to friends already.

Cannot thank the staff enough for being so friendly and accommodating in turning around my room to enable me to check in early. The room was spacious, with a lovely view to the ocean, a comfortable bed, and lots of tea making facilities. The history of the hotel is set out in the guest guide, and is well worth a read. Breakfast was hearty in a lovely setting. I also had dinner in the bar/restaurant downstairs - really good value and generous servings

Tips:

Entertainment at the hotel is good with regular pub quizzes, bingo and such, but if you're after something a little more traditional, nearby Brodick Community Hall has a summer Ceilidh on a Wednesday night. The hotel is also close to the 'Fisherman's Walk to the Castle and this is well worth doing - a really beautiful way to see the island.

The Ormidale is a good value hotel which provides a clean en-suite room with an excellent breakfast at a fair price. This includes parking, use of the gardens, a lounge during the day and the lively bar at nights. It also has several single rooms which can keep the price down for the lone traveller. Please be aware, however, that as an older private hotel which is a popular bar and disco with the people of Arran, it is an historic house with rather than a purpose-built hotel. The owners go out of their way to offer help to guests. The breakfast is huge and offers a full range of everthing you could possibly want to eat. The Ormidale is a reasonable walk from the ferry terminal, set well back from the main road, not far from Brodick church. It is possible to walk it if carrying a backpack but with a suitcase, a cab would be preferable. Subject to the understanding that the Ormidale is about warm Scottish hospitality at a very fair price, consistent with the age and conversion standards of the hotel, then I would recommend the Ormidale.

Tips:

Midges during the summer are a known menace on Arran. Have an insect repellent and USE it - it is on sale everywhere - and consider a plug-in mosquito killer.

Really friendly helpful staff. We are the couple who couldn't get out of our room but this was sorted promptly with good humour and we knew that you were busy with the school Fair. This is an old building with a long history and is not modern but we found it clean and very comfortable. The breakfasts were really good and varied with any choice being no trouble at all. Although a busy Bar we didn't experience any noise at all. We thoroughly enjoyed the quiz. We have spent time in The Ormidale Bar and Conservatory over many years first on our honeymoon, with family and now again on our own. In so many ways it was lovely to stay here for our 50th Wedding Anniversary

Tips:

We wanted to eat somewhere special and tried Crofters on the first night and promptly booked again for the second. Again staff really welcoming and helpful, good atmosphere and lovely duo playing on Friday evening. The food was excellent someone in the kitchen really knows how to cook and present food in the best way and uses lovely fresh ingredients. We visited many of our favourite places. Easy to get around using local buses if no car, but ferry and passenger deal is competitive. Kings Cave, Shiskine Golf course and clubhouse, Glenashdale Falls Brodick Castle, lovely cheeses just on the edge of Brodick.Many memories .

Everybody at the Hotel made us feel very welcome in a relaxed, efficient manner. On the three nights we stayed, there was a fun quiz in the bar, which we really enjoyed - especially when I displayed my lack of Scottish football Knowledge - to the mirth of all locals! Food most excellent - great quality and choice at breakfast and evenig bar meals - breakfast sausage hard to beat! As Camra member, enjoyed well kept local real ales - choice of three. Hotel in wonderful setting with mature gardens and woods. Room cosy and functional and peaceful and quiet. If you want a great place to stay, this is it!

Tips:

If you like oatcakes, no place like Wooleys in Brodick. For a fine house to visit, Brodick castle and grounds. If you want a good walk, Kings Cave on West coast of Arran. Heritage centre very interesting and Arran brewery speaks for itself!

I organised the family meal for 11 in this hotel to celebrate my husband’s 60th. I cannot thank the staff enough for making it so special and pulling out all the stops. Especially Lindsay and the lovely young man behind the bar. Thankyou all! We will be back !

We arrived with our 2 bearded collies having just climbed Goat Fell in the pouring rain, and were met with a warm welcome. All of the staff that were working were very helpful and very friendly. The Ormidale is very close to all of the amenities in Brodick, and so we never used our car the rest of the weekend. I am Gluten intolerant, and would just ask you to consider maybe making a bit more gluten free foods available. I had steak each night that I was there as there wasn't anything else. There was gluten free bread available for breakfast. All in all I loved my stay and will be back.

Excellent welcome from Laura and staff friendly and genuine throughout.Breakfast was superb - excellent choice and well cooked. I think however that the limited breakfast times may affect some visitors who want an early start eg before 9.30.

Tips:

The hotel is perfectly placed for the beach, the castle. the town, Glen Rosa and Goatfell. No real need to bring car - walk from ferry and then access the excellent bus service. Brodick is not pretty but its setting is magnificent and from here you can access the rest if island by public transport.

The owners accommodated us arriving late in the evening after our original ferry was cancelled due to the weather, and they were very friendly & welcoming. The room was spotlessly clean and very comfortable, which resulted in a restful night. The next morning we missed breakfast as we had to leave early to get to the site where we were working, but the owner visited us an hour later with hot breakfast sandwiches, which was above and beyond any service level we've ever had before. To say we were delighted is an understatement! We will definitely be returning here when working back on the Island.

Plenty of parking (we were in a transit van), beautiful property, close to Brodick ferry terminal so very easy to find.

Arrangements were made for us to eat breakfast in the bar area which we found very acceptable. She was made to feel welcome too and very spoiled with all the attention. Room was clean and had a lovely view. Food was fantastic and the bar was well stocked. Thoroughly enjoyed our weekend away and hopefully will be back soon.

Tips:

Based in Brodick, it is a great base for the island. We like to go walking and would recommend a good camera as the views are spectacular. Good hotel if you have four legged friends with wooded area for walks.

The staff in The Ormidale are welcoming and hospitable. As a single traveller, I felt safe in their company and benefitted from their generous sharing of their life on Arran as compared with my life on the mainland. My room was warm and peaceful.

Positioned in a quiet spot a short walk from the water front. An old building with tall ceilings and dark, solid wood internally could feel old fashioned. But there has obviously been quite a bit of investment in redecorating to make it look and feel bright and modern - particularly in the bedrooms and the breakfast room. Everything you need is provided in the rooms including showers, towels, hairdryer, TV, kettle and makings. Staff very friendly. Breakfast full and fab. Decent beers and very good food in the bar at night.

Tips:

We did experience some midgies in the evening sitting out in the beer garden but they were not too bad and we simply moved back into the bar area where there were plenty of seats available. On our second evening whilst awaiting the late ferry, we had a superb evening meal in the Brodick Bar which is in easy walking distance of the Ormidale heading back towards the ferry port and slightly set back off the main road.

Very friendly place, rooms very clean, and Laura couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating. Location is just a couple of minutes' walk from the front, away from any traffic noise. Very good value.

Tips:

Be aware that - as they make clear on their website - the Ormidale is really a pub with rooms, and the bar is open till quite late, with music on some nights - so, if you'd prefer an early night, ask for a room at the quiet end of the building. After the first night, we asked to be moved to a quieter room, and had absolutely no problem after that.

A comfortable and lively hotel serving good quality bar food and good beers, etc. Friendly, and completely unpretentious.

Tips:

Brodick is a good base from which to explore the island. Arran's acquired name "Scotland in miniature" is an apt one! Plenty to do and see without having to travel far.

Wonderful stay at the Ormidale. Lovely staff made our stay just perfect. We had our doggy Mylo with us and they set up a table for us in the bar so he could be with us when we had breakfast, which was greatly appreciated. It’s a truly dog friendly place. The food is fantastic, the rooms are cosy and immaculate. Everything about the Ormidale is perfect. We absolutely love this place, can’t wait to go back.

Fantastic for a fun, relaxed, friendly atmosphere with a great selection of Malts at the bar, excellent breakfast and happily catering for vegans. Night time entertainment and comfy clean room. Adore the Ormidale!

Tips:

If on Lochranza you'd be lucky to get a table at the Stag opposite the whiskey distillery. Great food and cozy magical atmosphere. Plus it's a bring your own bottle and they'll even pop it in an ice tub for you! Marvins woodcarving studio on Corrie is spellbinding... incredible talent. A must to visit! Simon Thorburn at the pottery studio is also well worth a visit... look out for the feathers imprints on his pottery.... looks spectacular! The Pooch close to an entrance to Brodick castle, behind the Arran brewery, has a variety of special, unique gifts and isn't too far away from the Ormindale. Their stained glass imaginative creations are a treat :) The walk to Kings Caves if you're fit n able to climb up n down rambling style is a must. Check out the history of Robert the Bruce and relax on a Forrest bathing walk to get there. Give yourself a few hours to enjoy. On the way to Blackwaterfoot..... where the trecking centre is always top of my list! Beach rides! Can't beat it. Suitable for beginners to more experienced riders. Try the Machrie Moor whiskey.... it's delicious! Top of the list is the Ormidale! Best hotel on Arran for fun, food n folk :)

Relaxed, friendly and approachable. Arrived quite late and initially a bit confused re where to collect room key. A notice did explain to go through bar but it being a saturday night would have preferred not to do, some guests could feel uncomfortable especially the shy or dry ones!! However, staff very warm and welcoming once found! And able to sense the easy going and informal nature and friendliness of the hotel. The room though petite and above/near delivery entrance is creatively decorated, very colourful and fun, with view from window of trees and some green areas, it was pleasant and felt snug/warm.

Tips:

Red deer in north of island and especially Lochranza able to get very close to them. Also Sannox Glen lots of sightings and hill path to Laggan (above Lochranza) a huge group ran passed away from an oncoming storm (previous visit in June). Magnificent creatures, makes great photography. Recommend Holy Island, small boat from Lamlash, pre book necessary, depends on tide and number of passengers. Can day trip or stay on island, again need to pre book accommodation dates and also a course program but don't have to participate in any courses to stay. A lovely peaceful and quiet island, away from crowds.

Our stay on Arran caused us to fall in love with the island. The 4 days /nights we spent on the island were very much influenced by our stay at the Ormidale where the hospitality was lovely, the food [breakfast AND evening meal every day] was terrific, the beer in the bar was good and the accommodation was both comfortable and charming.

Tips:

We got around the island by bus and were able to explore every part. The daily 'Rover' tickets are very good value. The castle gardens, Holy Island and the distillery at Lochranza figured on our itinerary. However, there were so many beautiful places to visit where walking around or sitting, looking out over the harbour [every place has one]filled our time adequately.

Stayed one night in large single room with private bathroom. Great room, very clean and comfortable.. Amazing breakfast with the nest granola ever and great cooked breakfast choices. Staff very friendly and helpful and great atmosphere, relaxed, welcoming, just right. Fantastic bar and beer garden. Great location, wonderful plants in the garden and some superb trees. Handy for ferry. The only thing it is missing is a dedicated bike rack/storage area perhaps as there was nowhere to store it. Had to lock to picnic bench outside. I especially like that it is a fog-friendly pub too. I was also offered to keep it inside but thete was already a bike in the only space free in the entrance.

Tips:

Great location and ideal for walking to Herotage Centre, Arran Aromatics, Arran Cheese shop etc. Lovely walk through wood trail to Lamlash starts just along rhe road. Buses at end of road. Handy for beach, pitch amd putt.. I will definitely return for longer next time.

Very nice family run Hotel. Nice Bar, Wintergarden. I stayed here for one night as a stage of a roundtrip through Scotland with my motorbike. Safe parking for the bike possible in front of the hotel. I will most probably return in 2018. Then for 2 or 3 nights (1 Day in the Isle of Arran is not enough).

Tips:

Brodick is a nice small harbour-town. Unfortunately I had just one day on the I o A. It was just enough time for a little round-trip alongside the shore and the road from the west to Brodick. But i can imaging that the Island is -apart from motorcycling- great for walks an push-biking.

You are a very nice, traditional family-run hotel, with a lovely conservatory to eat in, attached to a good stone-built building - and with a very good selection of Arran whiskys !

Tips:

Don't miss the gardens of Brodick Castle, or the drive across the island called the String.

We enjoyed our short break at the Ormidale Hotel. We were made very welcome by Tommy, Trevor and Laura. It was great to be able to bring or dog and the kids appreciated the really good wifi. Breakfast was great and we enjoyed the great atmosphere in the bar in the evening-the pop music quiz was great fun. Laura also took time out of her busy day to tell us about the interesting history attached to the hotel. Would recommend this hotel for it's relaxed and friendly atmosphere

Tips:

The tearoom in the Arran Heritage Centre is very good and the local Chinese take away is excellent. The bronze age round house in the grounds of Brodick Castle is very interesting with regular talks and an opportunity to handle artifacts.

All members of the hotel staff were extremely friendly and welcoming and likewise the bar staff. I have never experienced a hotel which is so dog friendly which was most enjoyable and my border collie loved it. Yes I would certainly recommend a stay at this small but unique family run hotel.
