My partner and I have been staying at the Kildonan hotel this week for our wedding. We can not begin to explain how magical the hotel has made the day for us! The food in particular was out of this world- our wedding guests were given a choice of three options on the day, which we chose in advance to...

We visited as a group of 12, mixed adults, teenagers & kids. Called a couple of hours ahead to book. Great choice of starters, mains & deserts. We stayed st this hotel for 2 nights the previous summer and loved it. Since then they've done up the restaurant and moved the bar right beside it. The outside area is so...

This hotel is situated on the beach looking towards Pladda island.You can see otters and seals from the windows.The staff are most obliging and the food of a good standard. The hotel is dog friendly in the extreme.Definitely recommend.

Lovely weekend break. Had booked a double room but was upgraded to a room with a balcony as it was my Birthday!. Stunning sea views over Pladda and otters and seals abound. Food nice and the breakfasts were just what we needed to keep us going all day. Lovely and quiet, the only sound was the sea and the gulls....

Perfect family holiday last Easter. Room clean with love views to Ailsa Craig and Pladda. Kids spent hours playing in the rock pools, seal and otter spotting. We will definitely be back. There were some building works going on when we were there but didn't detract from the holiday at all - I look forward to coming back when they...

Lovely hotel with such fantastic staff. We upgraded our room to the suite, i personally wouldn't say it's a suite but it was nice to have a seating area with the tv. Bathroom is nothing fancy but the room itself was comfortable and cosy. nice view from the balcony at sunset too. Food was good, not sure I was all...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Unwind and forget your troubles at our small, family run hotel. Built in the 17th Century, it is one of the 7th oldest licensed Inns in Scotland and historically a destination that families have aspired to visit for well over 100 years. Perched on the southern-most tip of Arran with panoramic views to die for, the hotel is located right on the seafront, the beach literally stone's throw away. Overlooking the Firth of Clyde we are right in the middle of a unique eco-system with a plethora of wildlife. We have seals basking daily on the rock jetties off-shore, otters feeding and playing on the rocks and gannets diving non-stop through the day. We are also fortunate to have occasional basking sharks and dolphins visiting in the summer months and an array of birds-of-prey including eagles, peregrines, buzzards and more... Pladda Island sits directly across the sound with its recognisable lighthouse and ever changing silhouette playing host to a large colony of seagulls and gannets. And of course the famous Ailsa Craig, 'Paddy's Milestone', a bird sanctuary now but is renowned for its granite which is still used for curling stones today. The interior is fully refurbished, still maintaining some the quaint characteristics of old, while the tasteful addition of extended bistro and lounge area with floor to ceiling windows allow residents and diners to gaze for miles over a cup of tea, breakfast or an evening meal. ... more   less
