We came from Canada with our children (first time in Scotland for them) and thought we got a room overlooking the beach that I knew as a child. We didnt figure out the shower knobs till the next...

Thank you for your review, although a little puzzled why it has taken 5 months to bring your points to our attention. As an old building with modern extensions it is unfortunately unavoidable to have roof extensions and air conditioning units on view. We are delighted to confirm that we do offer some sea view rooms with spectacular unobstructed outlooks....

We stayed here a few years ago and it OK but we spent a bight here now and ir was very poor. Our room was huge and with really great views but that was the end of the good experience. The room was clean but in need of decorating it was very tired looking.. The taps in the bathroom were...

Visited the restaurant on a whim yesterday and glad we did. The place is tastefully decorated and the views across the beach are amazing. My partner and I sat in the extension area beside the large fire and it was so relaxing and tranquil. We both ate off the set menu and the four dishes we had were superb, especially...

Popped in for lunch with daughter and 10 month old granddaughter. I use a walking stick and the easy access to the restaurant was appreciated. The staff were so helpful and kind, providing a highchair for the wee one without being asked. The food was generous, tasty and very reasonably priced. My daughter and I both had Thai flavoured starters...

We found this place by chance while waiting for the ferry to Arran. Great place with amazing views toward Arran. Great food with friendly helpful staff. Prices were good too, hope to go again. Very well presented clean and well heated. Must have been an impressive old Victorian Hotel in its day and still has a grande feel about it...
