This place is beyond terrible. It was filthy, never seen a hoover for months, mould on the ceiling, microwave was a health hazard, the bed sheets were disgusting and it was freezing. An embarrassment to Scottish tourism.

When we arrived we did arrive fairly early for a normal check in time. We went to the reception door and we were scared to walk in. A dog barking can be quite scary if you don't know the dog. Though we walked in and found the dog to be super friendly. I love dogs! We didn't know where any...

We were given , without asking, an update to studio2 and have no complaints. It was a large and comfortable room and very quiet so sleep was great. Jim is very friendly and helpful. Real fire in the reception area where we could relax and read had we wished is a nice feature. So close to ferry is great if...

To me, there are only 2 good things about this accommodation, the location (close to the ferry) and the view. We arrived in a freezing cold apartment as the oil heater wasn't working. We had to use the hob and oven to try and heat the place up! The shower didn't work, the tap on the bathroom was leaking the...

We had a two night stay in October .We booked a one bedroom apartment and were given a recently refurbished studio with superb view over the bay. We ate out so did not use the kitchen for cooking. only used the kettle. There was no microwave or pot lids but this did not bother us. The room was very well...

You would be hard pushed to find a better view looking out the window but the overall apartment could do with some money being spent on it. The bedding too should be reviewed as ours was a washed out wine coloured sheets and duvet which did not feel clean and fresh. The apartment however was kitted out well with everything...

We stayed for 2 nights in Studio 2 within the Shorehouse. The location is fantastic. A 5 minute walk from the ferry terminal, or a 1 minute drive. There are a few parking spaces at the rear and we managed to get the last 1. There is plenty of parking on the street outside however. Our room was large and...

This property is under new ownership as of this year so you can probably disregard older reviews. We booked last minute and got a newly renovated suite facing the water. So new that it wasn't yet advertised on the website and we were the first to use it. Clean, well furnished and equipped, with beautiful views and a great location...

The best part for this apartment is location. You will struggle to find any better place to stay in Arran at this price. Main advantages are: closest to ferry terminal walking distance from bus stop. mesmerizing views by just stepping out or from the windows. stores nearby to buy stuff I have not seen any better location in Arran to...

“Before booking I emailed the shores directly, they got back with me very quickly and answered all my questions. The apartments on the front of the house have the best views. Also there isn't an elevator so If you have heavy bags you might want to stay on a lower floor.”
