I stayed in the Corrie on a walking break with a group of friends earlier this week. I would recommend this hotel unreservedly for customer care during the covid regulations, hospitality, meals, service and comfort. We were warmly welcomed by Anne and her team, who could not be more helpful throughout. The hotel has wonderful views, a superb beer garden and is located in an area with sightings of seals, red squirrels and deer. We will definitely be returning.
First time visiting Corrie Hotel for a meal and were very impressed with the service and elevated pub food on offer. We will definitely be back. A minor note: communication could be improved as phone calls & emails went unanswered for a couple of days. Improved social media presence would definitely increase the footfall at the hotel/pub/restaurant too.
Despite Covid, they are trying hard but felt let down a bit. The restrictions in dining/ bar experiences are part of this and cannot be helped but, as there are no tv's in the rooms and nowhere to convene at a bar, you are left a bit twiddling thumbs. Very small room a bit tired. No toiletries, luckily we had our own. Shortage of things at breakfast. Staff friendly but, because of Covid the atmosphere was taken away.
After a short ferry ride to the beautiful Isle of Arran with another couple we were thrilled to arrive at this hotel. We both had a room with a magnificent view of the sea. We were able to spot the Corrie seal sculpture placed on a huge boulder in the sea, it was carved by a local artist Marvin Elliott, if you are lucky you may be able to catch him in his workshop a short walk down the road. If we had gone in a car we would have loved to purchase something big... Next time! Anyway bag to the hotel, a warm welcome and a wonderful quirky seemingly independent hotel we went up to our lovely room, put our things down showered then went to sit down over the road as the hotel outside space is there. Lots of picnic tables, drinks bought to the table, good choice of drinks. We sat chatting until the sun was dropping, after we got ready for our evening meal we popped outside to look at the fire pit that had been lit, warm cosy and a great sight. Later we stood outside looking up at the millions of stars seriously the light pollution must be about zero, if you like star gazing put Arran on your wish list. The evening meal was delicious, not hurried nice portions, presented well, I had hallumi salad which was very tasty. Last orders at 10pm. All covid advice was followed throughout. We had a great night's sleep then a lovely gluten free vegetarian, breakfast before we went on our journey, lots of other menu choices. We can't wait to return. …
We stayed at the Corrie Hotel on an Island Hoping trip in September 2020. The hotel is in an amazing location on the coast looking back to the mainland and at the back has some of the mountains of Arran (is just below Goat Fell), The room was a nice en-suite and breakfast was excellent (full Scottish, including some Haggis). The hotel had some COVID restriction when we were there but everything was well managed.
