Allan is an excellent host,very attentive and knowledgeable. The house was perfect for my requirements, and is a short walk from local amenities.

Tips:

The food at the Douglas Hotel was excellent and reasonably priced. The food at the Ormidale Hotel was a bit disappointing. Next time, I will save up and treat myself to a meal at the Brodick Brasserie!

Excellent stay. Very friendly, helpful and welcoming manager and staff. Homely, clean and comfortable. Excellent hearty breakfast. Great, convenient location.

Tips:

A wonderful island. There are plenty of good places to eat locally. I enjoyed fine dining one night at the Brodick Brasserie just down the road, but there are places to suit all budgets.

The Belvedere was our first stay on our first-ever visit to Arran and was easily reached by the local bus system from the ferry terminal in Brodick. Our room overlooked the outside garden/dining area. The room was small but clean, quiet and comfortable and suited our needs well. The restaurant featured excellent food and the included breakfast offered many choices. We ate dinner there a couple of times and enjoyed a beer in the garden. Staff were friendly and accommodating.

Tips:

The hotel is situated along the two-lane main road in Lamlash and is right across from the beach and a coastal park. We used the local bus to travel around the island and the hotel was close to bus stops. Views of the Holy Isle are outstanding and we walked the beach many times. The ferry to the Holy Isle is a short walk from the hotel. A small grocery store and several restaurants and shops are nearly.

This is my third stay and the Belvedere is always my first choice. Alan is a fabulous host and does his utmost to ensure his guests have a comfortable and pleasant stay. I stayed upstairs in room 2 this time, a twin room overlooking the sea. The room was large, the bed was comfortable with quality linen and mattress and pillow protectors. A hairdryer was supplied as well as a generous tea tray. The en-suite contained a shower which was perfect. Alan's breakfast's are huge, with lots of choice combinations. Alan also ordered me some haggis from his butcher in Paisley which was fabulous and very reasonably priced.

Tips:

The Belvedere is quietly situated behind the row of shops and establishments on the sea front. The minor road runs parallel to the coast road but there is no road noise. There is a walk nearby that takes a forest route down into Lamlash where there are more shops, coffee bars and pubs. There is also a small ferry boat that will take day trippers over to Holy Isle (no dogs). I had evening meals at The Douglas (nearer to the ferry terminal) which is very popular and is better to be booked ahead, and Crofters which is along the right hand side of the main road. Brodick Castle is a few miles away, The Cheese Shop, Botannicals, Heritage Museumn all close to each other. There are two distilleries. The whisky distillery at Lochranza is interesting and the red deer and eagles roam around there. Corrie, Sannox, Goat Fell are great areas for walking plus Glen Rosa and Kings Cave. A small island with lots to see and do.

Stayed as a solo traveller in the twin room with sea view. Check in was so simple and allan was very friendly and accommodating. Twin room was clean, comfortable spacious with stunning views. There was tea and coffee, hair dryer and glasses for wine. The TV was good and WiFi great Shower lovely, bedding comfortable and warm. There was even eletric blankets but I didn't need to turn it on. Breakfast was excellent and also catered for gluten free. Had a wonderful stay and if returning to arran would stay here again! Will recommend Thanks again Allan

This is where we will stay when we return to Arran.

What a lovely setting for a B&B. Allan was really friendly and filled us in about the island and how wonderful it is to socialise here. The shower was a bit temperamental, but everything else was great. We could use the dining room and lounge as we wanted also incredible views. We had a roo. At the front overlooking the bay, and the ferries coming and going.

Tips:

Crofters does good food, not cheap, but very good. Takeaway pizzas, and Chinese, the pizzas were excellent. Cafe Little Rock is good. Brodick Castle is interesting. Lots more to see and do, we just ran out of time!

3rd time stay here, and as ever, spotlessly clean and 100% comfortable. Front double room has stunning views, big comfy bed and great size bathroom. Check in is easy (just take key and go) and breakfast was the best i'd had in any B&B with gorgeous personal touches! Very quiet and peaceful here, great for relaxation. Easy walking to everywhere. 10 mins walk from ferry terminal door to door. I traveled as a foot passenger this time and walked everywhere with ease. Allan, and the other guests very friendly, and I felt 100% safe and well at all times. Would not hesitate to stay again & recommend. I left luggage for a few hours and was able to use the lounge to pack up & rest when ready to depart for afternoon ferry. Perfect!

Tips:

The Ormidale Hotel is a 10 min walk and serves food and drink with no bookings needed, very handy, and a good menu selection. Fishermans Walk lovely to the beach and beyond to avoid the main road. Most business closed on a sunday - best to bear in mind (bars & supermarkets open). Many great walks - its a fantastic island for peace and beautiful surroundings.

The Belvedere is an amazing place to stay! The guest house is located close to the ferry terminal. Our room was very cosy, felt like a real home and totally clean. A high standard en-suite bathroom did not have any issues, very clean as well. We had a calm, good sleep in a comfortable bed, then woke up for breakfast which has been chosen by us the day before. Food was top quality. Alan, the host, is a friendly, energetic person and we had the impression that we know each other for years! Alan gave us total freedom during the stay, avoiding any awkward official procedures and this is another reason for saying that everyone can feel there like at home. Free car park is an additional benefit. Thank you to all the staff! We will be returning, definitely!

The Belvedere is in a lovely elevated position overlooking Brodick bay and Goatfell, within easy walking distance of the ferry and various shops. Allan (the owner) is very friendly and flexible in meeting various requirements for different breakfast times and diets. The rooms are lovely, those at the front of the house have a fantastic view of Goatfell. This is the second time I have stayed here and will definitely be coming back.

Tips:

If you don’t have a car and are here for a few days or more, I would recommend you get a weekly bus pass (about £20) and you can hop on and off any of the buses that take you all over the island. I walked several sections of the wonderful coast path using the buses to get me out and back. Food wise, if you like seafood, The Shack (mobile food trailer) is fantastic as is Mara in Corrie. The Parlour on the front in Brodick does really good Pizza, eat in and take out.

This was our first time staying at a guest house in Arran, we definitely chose the right one. The rooms were Immaculate there was everything you needed In your room plus more. Allan is the perfect host he would do anything for you and is very knowledgeable about the Island. Great place to stay and will definitely return. Plus good prices as well.

Tips:

If people like hillwalking there is plenty there to climb, there is also the brewery, whiskey distillery to visit, there is a soft play, swimming at the Auchrannie but with covid etc I would probably check to see if it is guests only that can use these facilities. The castle is a good place to go, the cheese shop, Arran aromatics etc. There is plenty places to eat The Ormidale in Brodick is good give it a try at least once when you visit. Lots of nice wee shops as well.

Owner Response:

How rude of you. For one you never provided a time of arrival and just turned up whilst i was in the middle of decorating. Advised where to store your bikes and that did not seem good enough for you. The guest house has just been decorated and I think you will find you are full of rubbish. Sorry it was a dull wet day when you arrived from Oban, shame you did not check the weather before coming to Arran, no doubt the delays getting off the Island due to the ferry has ruined your mood. Your review is not a true reflection of the property. Please do not come back to my beautiful house as your have a bad attitude.

We loved every minute of our stay at Belvedere! We felt at home straightaway in both our room and the guesthouse as a whole. It was really easy to find, thanks to the clear instructions we’d been given in our booking confirmation email. The location was very central so easy to pop to the pub without worrying about having too far to come back later on. The room was tidy and clean, the bed was comfy, the view was amazing, the breakfast was the best we’ve had in ages and the chat at the breakfast table with another guest was a great way to start the day. A lot of laughter all round, thanks to Allan creating such a welcoming atmosphere for us all. Our only regret was not being able to stay longer. If we’re ever back on Arran, the Belvedere will be our first port of call.

Tips:

Have dinner and a drink at the bar at the Douglas Hotel in Brodick. Walk up Glen Rosa to see the waterfall and the Devil’s Punch Bowl. Walk from King’s Caves to Blackwaterfoot and have lunch at the golfcourse clubhouse there. Explore the beach at Sannox if you have your own transport.

The house was beatiful, we had a nice sea view from our room. We could enjoy the sunrise from the comfort of our room. The best part of the stay was Allan, the owner. He was very kind and super friendly. He gave us recommendations and also kept our bags the last day until the afternoon to allow us enjoy the island. He cooked for us a full scottish breakfast with local products that was really delicious. The clean of the room, the bed and the facilities were very good. The quiety of the night to sleep is something that I appreciate very much.

Owner Response:

Thought I would reply and post this review now that covid restrictions and safety is higher. This review was typical hence bringing my ratings down. If you had Mo read all the information I provided on booking with us during the pandemic would have realised that I was doing self check in, continental breakfast served to the room if ordered for a time provided to avoid contact for my, yours and my staffs safety. If you look at my reviews prior too and recently after running it as I dreamed of when you stayed you will see the review was unfair and detrimental to my hard work protecting the public during this time whilst still providing as best service I could. Sorry you did not enjoy your stay and I would recommend coming again as I provide a warm welcoming place to stay whilst enjoying Arran. Now I am cooking and meeting guests when possible again things are great. Sorry I had to make the decision to run it the way I did during the pandemic. Not my choice and it cost this small business a lot of money along with what was spend ensuring you’d catch nothing whilst staying here. Your room was heavily cleaned and curtains steamed and carpet steamed before arrival. Those low scores were untrue and because you felt negative about your stay through not understanding by reading our thorough information. Come again I am sure you will not feel the same, Allan

Brodick castle isn't to far from the guest house. It's a lovely wee walk along the beach. The chippy down the road is so tasty! It's not far from the brodick ferry terminal which is great if you have suite cases etc. It's really easy to get to and is a lovely walk. And its just a 5 mins walk to the town center.

For me the continental breakfast really didn't work. Other hotels have got around the same problem by doing breakfast in shifts.

As for my wee dogs, they have just been nutered so had to stay in for two weeks when healing and I was filming a local show that evening. Sorry if they barked for me. All the best, Allan

The response time from staff was good and attentive via text in amongst the Covid pandemic. The view from the room was stunning - fantastic views of Goatfell! It was quiet which was peaceful. The room itself was also very clean and bed very comfortable. Few issues we had included the summer house light outside at night shone in through our window and the curtains weren’t blackout so that made it difficult to get off to sleep somewhat. We were disappointed by the breakfast quality and felt it was all stuff we could have just bought each morning from supermarket. The shower was barely warm, although the provider said it was set to a comfortable setting so I imagine some people would have felt it was warm enough.

Tips:

Glenshadale Falls is a nice easy uphill walk as an alternative to Goatfell but Goatfell is amazing. Kildonan Bay has the most beautiful Sandy beach - good for sunbathing and quiet spots. We visited the Brodick Bar which was sadly not worth the very expensive prices. We were happy to pay money for good food but there was barely any food on the plate and so it felt a real rip off. The Pierhead Tavern in Lamlash or The Parlour in Brodick were our two favourite places to eat and drink

Really enjoyed my three nights at Belvedere. Allan was an ideal host who was very helpful and was a pleasure to deal with. Belvedere is ideally located making it central to all facilities on Brodick. I’d recommend it to others and I personally will stay here again.

Allan was a great host he made us very feel welcome. Our room was spotless, immaculate & very comfortable. We had a lovely continental breakfast delivered to our room.

Tips:

We enjoyed great food at both The Douglas Hotel & The Ormidale Hotel. We recommend a visit to the Heritage Museum, The Arran Distillery & a drive round the island is a must.

Absolutely wonderful wee stay. Everything catered for in a Covid friendly way, which is an incredible achievement seeing the regulations have only just changed (again). We would heartily recommend. Thannk you

Tips:

We did the King's Caves walk by taking the bus around towards Blackwaterfoot (322,323 and 324 all go there and the bus drivers are super friendly and will drop you off anywhere requested). We were going to climb Goatfell but 'bottled it' due to the wind. Super glad we did, the King's Caves are a gorgeous walk and pretty quiet when we went too ☺️

Really enjoyed the stay there. Perfect location, comfy bed, clean bathroom and great simple breakfast- best fruit salad I ever had(and I’m very picky :) ) All covid measures in place, so I met Allan only before leaving, but was very nice and lovely chat with him. Also as solo traveler, I felt very safe and like at home. Fell totally in love with Arran, so definitely will be back, choosing Belvedere again, as it has perfect position to the ferry, buses and shops.

We had a very comfortable stay at The Belvedere. A few minor niggles; the plumbing was a bit rattly, the duvet was too warm, but otherwise everything was fine. They take Covid19 very seriously and everything is designed to be contact free. A delicious continental breakfast was served in our room, and we enjoyed watching the gannets fishing as we ate our meal. Would have liked to meet the owners though.

Had a great meal at the Brodick Brasserie and Bar, just along the road. Excellent scallops and Bouillabaisse.

I would give 5 for facilities but for the kettle to work it has to be sat on the floor as the lead isn't long enough to reach either the socket or the too short extension lead supplied in the room and the double socket under the window doesn't work so it should be fixed or marked up as redundant. Other than that room 5 was perfect. I especially liked the arrangements for these Covid times.

The Brodick Bar and Brasserie was good, friendly and tasty meals.

A great location, 2 mins drive from the ferry terminal or an easy walk. Spacious rooms, nice bathroom, and a good breakfast - choice of continental options delivered to your door. Lounge and dining room also available for use. You can walk to the centre in 5 minutes, and there are a choice of pubs or restaurants/shops to eat in/from. Fantastic views of the bay and mountains, great to just watch the ferries coming and going. I found the whole island very peaceful and friendly & would love to return.

Place was lovely and perfect location. It was only a 5/10 minute walk from the ferry terminal and very close to the co-op! We were comfortable from the start with regards to the current pandemic, everything was put in place to protect visitors. Sadly we didn’t meet the hosts due to COVID, but even without being physically present they made sure we were 100% looked after. The views of the sea and Goat Fell from our room were amazing, and felt even better looking at it after we had climbed it. This will be our go to the next time we visit Arran!

Tips:

Climbing Goat Fell is a must! We followed the fisherman’s coastal walk along the beach (stunning!) to arrive at goat fell, only a 30 minute walk. We got back from climbing late and went to Brodick Bar and Brasserie around 8:30pm, they were still serving food and it was fantastic! Less than 5 minutes from the guest house. We also stopped by the Little Rock Cafe for a takeaway breakfast before the ferry, highly recommend!

Little to add from above, great location and warm welcome. The obvious drawback of course is the unpredictability of the ferries which appears to be about more than simple unpredictability of the weather -another matter, of course. But certainly a problem to be addressed if tourism is to flourish in Arran and more generally in the isles. We had planned for two nights but cancelled ferries meant another two nights which means extra cost and inconvenience. Beware.

Tips:

Great place for walking at all levels coast and on hills. Brodick well served by places to eat and drink even out of season.

7th December 2019:

The room was clean and well presented, the building itself similar with a good view from its elevated position. The area is very quiet and I had a good night's sleep. I marked the service down because I never actually saw anyone during my one night stay at the guest house. I arrived at about 7.30pm having walked from the ferry. I saw neither another guest nor any staff. Allan, the proprietor, was contactable by mobile telephone and was very pleasant and accommodating. I had a ferry to catch at 0820 and was therefore unable to have any breakfast as breakfast starts at 0800 and could not be provided earlier, but I received a discount to my bill on account of this. I would rather have had the breakfast... Overall it was very good value for money and perfectly acceptable.

Tips:

There are very few places to eat or drink in the evening in Brodick in December. In fact at the risk of upsetting the good people of Brodick, I would say it was almost completely lifeless. There are two Co-ops with long opening hours though.

So glad I managed to get a room in Belvedere! The room was spotless and really comfortable, with a well-positioned tv up on the wall and easy internet access. The breakfast was like a three course meal with lots of choices and all freshly made - and suitable for all dietary needs and preferences - I'm a vegetarian and it was great!! Finally, there was such a friendly atmosphere - Allan was really welcoming and quick to respond to any questions - as well as having a great sense of humour - definitely go back!!

Tips:

Really easy to get to - just a few minutes walk from the ferry, with lots of shops and the Tourist Office very close by. Great walks too - especially Glen Rosa - stunning, as well as Goat Fell and the Castle and the beautiful gardens. There are also lots of excellent places to eat just a few minutes walk away - Crofters Bar and Brodick Bar and Brasserie were both terrific - with great live music as well.

Allan was friendly, efficient and willing to go the extra mile for his guests. I was given proper decaf coffee for the room. Great views from our room. Beds were very comfy. Slight problem with loo seat, which Allan tried to fix, but it slipped again.

Tips:

Arran Heritage Museum - wonderful! They have archives and genealogy services, too. Machrie Standing Stones. Brodick Castle and Country Park Lochranza Castle and Distillery. Eating out was generally expensive, but Brasserie and Douglas Hotel both ok, Ormidale a nice pub atmosphere.

A perfect place to stay. Allan, our host was extremely thoughtful and emailed us to let us know that there were cancellations and delays with the ferry from Adrossan. The Belvedere is perfectly located for the ferry and facilitates, such as shops and restaurants within walking distance but is quiet. Our room had wonderful views and was spotless. The breakfast was delicious with some added extras. It was a pity that we were only there for 1 night.

Tips:

We enjoyed an excellent meal with attentive service at The Brodick Brasserie a short walk away. Also recommend Woolley's for take away picnic and delicious oatcakes.

Tips:

I ate at the Brodick Bar which is a short stroll away - the food was very good but it is quite pricey. Buses are close to take you around the island though make sure you have the timetable as they can be infrequent. Brodick castle + grounds are worth a visit.

Lovely place, breakfast is fab. This was my 2nd stay and back again in October will always use this b&b for my short getaways to Arran. The location is perfect the ferry and shops are a stone throw away and the views are just breathtaking. Made to feel extremely welcome especially at breakfast, staff take time and chat away with you making you feel welcome.

Tips:

Highly recommend for any traveller. Keep in mind it is situated up a steep hill, but they do inform you prior to this and the view and stay is worth it. The Chinese is just at bottom of the hill and recommend also for a bite to eat.

Tips:

Places to eat in Brodick are limited, although the Brodick Brasserie serves excellent quality food (even if it looks like an old social club from the outside - inside is very different !) Coffee Pot tearoom near Glenashdale Falls is a fine place for a lunch stop, as is the Machrie Golf cafe. North west coast road is great for wildlife spotting.

Sorry you felt that way, unfortunetly in my three years doing this that was the 1st time people came at the wrong times and I had no space to plate up or serve the dishes so things were less than perfect. Usually it runs like a dream but sadly on this occasion it was not. Next time I am sure it will be better.

As always, we love our visit to the Belvedere. Allan is a friendly and knowledgable host, and we really like the location and view.

Tips:

The Ormidale is a great local pub with good pub fare, and Crofters offers excellent fresh food. It’s easy to get around using the local buses, much less stressful than driving, - and the buses are extremely reliable. There are so many places to walk, but we especially like Glen Rosa, the moors at Machrie, and Glenashdale area - and there’s the Coastal Path, too.

Just wanted to leave some feedback on our recent stay. I've worked in hospitality for over a decade and held positions such as Assistant Housekeeping Manager and Duty Manager of a 4 star Hotel. The Belvedere, Alan and his team are welcoming, friendly and in my honest and professional opinion a fantastic and utterly excellent quality Hotel/Guest House. From the moment we arrived we were welcomed and treated as though we were close friends. Honesty can't fault the experience. Everything from the check in, the room, the breakfast and check out was carried out with genuine warmth and courtesy. Location, quality of amenities, cleanliness of the room, attentiveness of the team, facilities on offer and knowledge of local area all were on par and indeed above that of a 4-5star service. And a very fair and reasonable price, which would have been cheaper still had we booked direct. If your looking for a friendly, warm and top quality stay in Arran at a reasonable price. You simply can't do better than The Belvedere. Remember to say hi to the doggos and be sure to sign the guest book. We will definitely be returning. 9/10 Excellent. Keep up the amazing work.

Tips:

It was my first visit visit to Arran, therefore I have very limited knowledge. I visited Glenashdale waterfall which was a lovely walk. Unfortunately the weather prevented me from completing my walk up Goatfell. I suppose, it was November.

A mature hillside guest house on a small road parallel to the coast road, 5-10 minutes walk from the ferry terminal. No traffic noise. Room 3 was a large ground floor double with a generous ensuite shower room. The room overlooks the rear garden and is in between the kitchen and dining room. There is a large guest lounge next to the dining room and both rooms overlook a pretty garden and across Brodick Bay. Alan was very welcoming and also let me leave my luggage for a few hours whilst I visited the shops. Lovely breakfast . Good value, good quality accommodation

Tips:

Along the seafront to the left is a cash point, local music bar and a shop selling hand made chocolate. Woolley’s of Arran oat cake and biscuit shop. A large store selling mountaineering equipment and clothing and a few cafes. There is a new crazy golf circuit. At the end of Brodick Bay is a sandy beach with the north island mountains as a backdrop. Bus station is next to the ferry port. Lamlash harbour overlooking beautiful Holy Isle is 5 minutes by bus. Day trippers are welcome to visit.

I really enjoyed staying at the Belvedere on Arran. My single room was spacious with a nice view, and I had sole use of a bathroom next door. Alan, our host, was very friendly and chatty, made me feel very welcome. The breakfast was amazing, I had a smaller version of the full one, as there was so much on offer!

Tips:

Arran is a wonderful place to visit. If you have a car, it's worth going on a road trip around the island, as the scenery varies a lot. If you're not driving, there is plenty to see on foot. Arran castle and country park is beautiful, and there are walks up in the hills. I went with some friends up by Glen Rosa, which was spectacular.

Thanks for your review. Out of all my reviews for that room over 2years I've never had such a bad one. I shall look into your request for better furnishings. Was renovated only last summer. Bathroom issues?? I asked as I do everybody if there was any issues and you guys said nothing? All guests since have had no complaints and I am fully booked most days? Whats wrong with the bathroom? its a new shower unit which works perfectly? The reason I guess your annoyed? I cant promise to be home to show people in when not provided a time of arrival. I do request this in the email which I send to every booking with all the boat times and directions. I do understand sometimes this does not please everyone. All positive criticism is met with energy to resolve the query. Your complaint is rubbish and completely unjust. Many thanks,

Very welcoming and the breakfast menu and the breakfast menu is excellent

Tips:

I was directed to a local hotel cum pub for evening meal, which was great. the bar had a nice cosy 'old-fashioned atmosphere (log fire), good beer including real ales and the food was good. It was also something of a mecca for locals, all friendly, so had a good atmosphere about. Just one point; I liked the fact it was lively with locals but of course that may not be to everyone's taste.

We returned to the Belvedere for a three night stay after a really enjoyable visit a year ago. Host Allan welcomed us warmly and looked after us wonderfully well throughout - nothing was too much trouble for him. From comfortable, well-equipped rooms to delicious breakfasts (whatever we ordered) we can honestly say that, having lost count of the number of B and Bs we have stayed at, the Belvedere is one of the very best. We will be back!

Tips:

If you visit the Douglas Hotel for a meal in the bar, be aware that they may insist that you leave a credit card behind the bar before they will serve you food, or make you 'pay as you go' each time you order. This happened to us on our third visit but not on the first two. The hotel is in need of staff training!
