Not having stayed at the Glenisle for about 5 years our return reminded us how much we enjoyed our stay. From friendly, helpful staff to excellent food and fresh. clean rooms with every amenity we could not fault the hotel. The beer garden on a sunny Saturday afternoon rounded off the weekend perfectly! Look forward to a futures return.

Had a relaxed couple of days at this lovely little hotel in Lamlash. Staff are friendly, well trained and able to make you feel looked after without being over powered. Room 14 is lovely and the bath has a brilliant view!

Great place to stay on Arran. Only 3.5miles from Brodick ferry terminal. On seafront Lamlash bay. Looking across the bay to the Holy Island. Friendly, helpful, attentive staff, do everything they can to make your stay a real pleasure. Great 70th birthday visit. Very much hope I will return.
