Tips:

The Ormindale Hotel offers something new every night, from folk sessions to pub quizzes, it seems to be the hub of the community. There was even a very unexpected disco, which welcomed all ages. 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.

Staff were very helpful and courteous, and catered for my vegetarian diet no problem at all. I had delicious options at dinner and breakfast options. The weather was very cold, however the hotel provided lots of furry blankets and additional heaters so that our roomy was toasty! The bar is used by local people who were very friendly. I really enjoyed my stay and would highly recommend. Well done

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.

Love the mature gardens, the delicious food and the friendly staff. There is a strong community focus also but late night events could not be heard from the rooms and did not detract from tranquillity (unless you wanted to participate!).

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!

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.

Tips:

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

We were made to feel very welcome by all staff and locals who visited the bar. We brought our dog and she was allowed everywhere except the restaurant. 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 Ormidale Hotel is in an excellent location in Brodick, close to the ferry terminal and many other amenities ie., shops, beach, hill walking, and bus services around Arran. 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.

Tips:

Enjoy the beautiful fresh Arran air and walk as often as you can, you will feel the benefit when you return home.

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.

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 :)

Second visit to the hotel and it won't be the last , we had our 2year old grandson with us and our dog. The twin room we had was spacious enough to leave the travel cot we take with us in place throughout our stay. The steak and kidney pie is a must try. Breakfast was very good and hit the spot.

Tips:

If your looking for a hotel that offers great service and food then look no further than the Ormidale. Walk the hills visit the castles and play on the many beaches and remember to take the smidge insect repellent.

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.

The hotel bar was warm and welcoming - a bonus for a solo traveler - for visitors, groups and locals alike. I really appreciated the leisure activities running in the bar and the wit and wisdom shared by the locals. Food in the bar is far, far above pub-grub standard.

Tips:

Ideally located within walking distance of the ferry and the many attractions Brodick has to offer and close to transport links for going further afield on Arran. Ormidale staff can recommend the many visitor attractions. I'd recommend Fiddlers Bistro for live music and Little Rock for coffee and cake. And the Ormidale's own quiz, food and Saturday night disco really have to be experienced!

Great location, suitable for exploring the island with shops,cafes, ferry terminal etc all nearby. Would definitely recommend this friendly hotel and will try to book again on my next visit to Arran.

An excellent hotel in a perfect spot . The room was delightfully decorated and we had lovely Arran aromatic shampoo soap and shower gels to use . The public rooms were tastefully decorated in keeping with the style of the building including wonderful Arts and Craft wall paper and wonderful art works on the wall. The reception and through our stay was warm welcoming and friendly. Trevor was fun and Laura made the most delicious home made granola every morning. Wonderful entertainment every night and the hotel seems to be the centre of the entertainment on the Island.

Tips:

Broddick castle is a must for lovers of stately homes and gardens. Wine port at bottom of Brodick castle does terrific food and lovely putside seating in the sunshine. We used it twice once for lunch a wonderful seafood platter and another time for tasty home baking. Kings Cave is well worth the walk. Never managed the Holy Isle but drove around the island and it is beautiful.

Tips:

The minute you leave the ferry, visit tourist info. Shops on the front are worth a visit especially Arran Active outdoor shop. Fiddlers provides great evening music whilst dining, but is rather expensive. Plenty of good walks without scaling goat fell. Beware MIDGES!

Also the TV was quite loud next door to us the second morning but that is out of your control I guess. Thank you again for a wonderful stay - we will be back!

Tips:

Ideally located in Brodick for all amenities but set in its own gardens so away from the hustle & bustle. Arran aromatics, Brodick castle, Heritage museum all within 5 minutes in the car or if you're fit a 10 minute brisk walk. Goat fell is also just along the road.

Tips:

Very close to the sea front with a full golf course, fun putting, wee shops, eating and a few bars. There is a bus service to different parts of the island to reach other golf courses. Eating out is expensive in Brodick - there are no small bistros, only restaurants with quite high prices (very good quality though). Even the local pub on the front was expensive. Don't expect an inexpensive stay. But a beautiful place.

This is my third stay at the Ormidale Hotel. I re book based on the the very positive experiences I have had whilst staying. The hotel environment is in a lovely older building which has great character. It is located in a gorgeous setting with great views from the garden seated on picnic benches from which I have enjoyed an evening meal with friends and fellow travelers. The rooms have always been very clean and the toiletries are lovely and appreciated. The food at breakfast and in the evening has been excellent with a good selection on the menu.The staff are very welcoming, hospitable and available to assist. I have very much enjoyed my stays at the Ormidale and look forward to future visits.

Tips:

Arran provides different experiences, whether you are sitting on a bench on the shoreline at various areas of the island, watching nature, looking at the land or seascape. Each time you visit there are different ponts of interest and discovery. It is also lovely to cross paths with local residents and fellow travelers too.

Tips:

We would recommend walking up Goat Fell. Also, visiting Arran Aromatics, the Arran Cheese shop and the distillery in Lochranza. Worth going to Lamlash to eat at The Glenisle and also heading further down to Whiting Bay to eat at Felicity's (excellent food and good cocktails). The Stag's Pavilion in Lochranza is also great for food - you definitely need to book though.

You were very friendly and also accommodating when we had a problem with our car and got to you a day late. All your staff were very friendly and pleasant. We had good meals in your bar both nights. Breakfasts were excellent. Room and bathroom good size. Good modern shower. We were rather concerned each time we drove in and out because of the size of the potholes on your drive, especially down near the gate. These could seriously damage a tyre or suspension. Can you not fill them in?

Tips:

Ormidale is very handy for the ferry, Brodick Castle and Goatfell and everything else locally. Brodick Castle and grounds are very interesting. Arran Cheese Shop and Arran Aromatics are great places to shop. I liked the Arran Ale! (Also available in Ormidale's bar!)

Great hotel great location off the main road and in lovely grounds the room was lovely and the staff were okay. Only problem I had was that when we arrived the room window had been left open and the room was a frost box after closing the window and putting the radiator on all night the radiator didn't get very hot. And the room remained very cold all night.. Other than that small issue lovely hotel I enjoyed my stay and I would stay there again. We went into the bar and watched a few folk singers which was fun.. Bar staff were okay. Couldave cracked a smile tho lol. But for the price we paid for the room we were very happy with the hotel

Tips:

During my stay we went for a drive around the island which was lovely we also visited Arran auromatics which was also lovely. And I would also recommend visiting the Kildonan hotel for a meal that was amazing but I've also heard the ormidale do lovely meals aswell :) Loads of really nice little shops and things to do on a really nice quiet island :)

THe hotel is accessible by bus, wich the station is near the ferry. Also, you can walk, it takes around 10 minutes.

Tips:

Arran Aromatics and Arran cheese is a must, the whole island smells of lavender. A trip to the distillery where we had a smaching lunch. The kitchen shop is also super. Tour the whole island if possible as the views are stunning. Scotland in minature is so true.

Only stayed the one night but can't fault hotel really. The only negative was that the shower wasn't that great. Not enough that I complained, might have done if staying longer. There is a disco on a Saturday night and I had read other reviews which said "noisy" we didn't find this was an issue. Really great location if you are attending the games, which we actually didn't know were on when I booked. Had a meal in the bar which was lovely. Staff friendly.

Tips:

Brodick castle is a must....beautiful. Highland Games is a good day out. Visit Arran Cheesxshop and Arran Aromatics. We had lunch in a little restaurant in Lochranza. The Stags Pavillion, food was wonderful.

The drift restaurant is a nice place to eat in lamlash it's tucked in there and you might miss it as you drive by. O the climb to goat fell, drive around the island, see the castle.

Loved our stay, staff were very helpful and friendly. Breakfasts had a great selection too and freshly cooked.

Tips:

Very handy are with easy access to Brodick, Lamlash and to tour the island. Food wise we dined in The Douglas opposite the Ferry and in Auchrannie in the next street as we attended a wedding there. At Auchrannie you can use their pool and spa facilities for a reasonable fee. Round the other side of the island we had lunch at The Kinloch. Great value. All good. The Ormidale also offered dinner if required. We visited Arran Aromatics, Arran Cheeses next door then local gift shops in Brodick. We went to the Arran Distillery but being a Sunday and winter hours it was closed till March. However we did view stags, Roe Deer an eagle and plenty of sheep even walking up the road to meet us!! Great place for walking, golfing and outdoor life. Will go back, definitely.

Hotel was lovely. Ensuite shower room needs slight upgrading, but actual room was like a boutique hotel. Hotel sign from road was noticeable, however, there are a couple of houses up the driveway. Wasn't sure which one was the hotel on arrival. Staff were lovely and very helpful. Breakfast great! Would def come again.

Simply one of the most pleasant stays I've ever had and I've travelled all over the world. It really was delightful, good company, excellent food, beautiful breakfast, helpful and kind staff, interesting locals and an all round gem. Thank you! Lorraine

Tips:

Well, you could try walking Goatfell, a few mins drive/ bus away, the Arran malt whiskey tour was good and I peeled myself away from the excellent Ormidale food for one night to eat at the Glenisla hotel in Lamlash - good food, service and atmosphere but don't miss the grub at the Ormidale!

Very nice stay, which couldn't have been any handier for us in Brodick. Staff went out of their way to help and the breakfasts were great. The only gripe would have to be the extractor fan in the room - whenever the light was on it sounded as the roof was going to take off like a rocket! Other than that, very enjoyable. Keep up the good work!

I booked this room in the knowledge there was a disco on Saturday night. Noisy is probably an understatement but you have been warned! Sunday was much more of what you'd expect of a Highlands and Islands hotel. Friendly banter with the local folk group and an especially talented retired GP who recited a heart-moving poem - Beat of the Sea, amongst other gems - Aldi-Lidlee-dee had me in stitches. Breakfast choice was extensive and there were plenty of cereal, juices, fruit etc.

Tips:

Although not golfers, we had a couple of drinks at the golf club opposite which was very friendly. The food was good too, so this venue became our second home for the weekend. Buses go from the ferry terminal about every two hours so it can be a bit tricky to get around if you don't have a car. My tip would be to book from Sunday and avoid Saturday unless you want a disco stomp till around 2 in the morning!!! Each to their own. Whether it's Yes or No on Thursday, Scotland is a beautiful country and many thanks to Laura for being an understanding host.

Good food, good sized and clean room, helpful staff. Hotel is well located.

Tips:

Hotel is close to all amenities. Brodick Golf Club is at bottom of the garden and is well worth playing. Ferry Terminal is walking distance (less than 1 mile). Good base for visiting/touring the rest of the island.

We really enjoyed our brief stay in Arran at the Ormidale Hotel.Although the place was very busy that night our bedroom was quiet .The en suite room was freshly decorated,with flat-screen TV and very comfortable twin beds.The breakfast was excellent in terms of the quality and variety of the food and beverages on offer.The locally-sourced smoked haddock the best I've had.From the outset the staff were helpful and welcoming with a well-informed knowledge of local history ,including that of the hotel itself.This is reflected especially in the breakfast room by an interesting selection of both historic and contemporary paintings.

Tips:

Take the local buses to tour the island.Eyes,hands and stress -free to take in the spectacular landscapes and co-ordinated to meet the ferries.
