This charming, ancient island inn is now an award-winning boutique hotel. Nestled in the charming village of Lamlash the hotel boasts one of the most beautiful locations on the Isle of Arran; looking across Lamlash Bay toward the Holy Isle which rises 1,000 feet out of the sea. The Glenisle was honoured at the 2011 Scottish Hotel Awards, scooping up a Gold Medal for hospitality as well as the prestigious Rising Star Small Hotel award. Once you have experienced Arran from the comfort of the Glenisle Hotel you might find yourself, like so many others, coming back year after year for a regular break which both relaxes and revitalises.

Find a bath with a better view!
Yes, there are ground floor rooms that can be made available by special request. I suggest you contact the hotel directly to arrange. I have a friend who did something similar a couple of months ago.

Mr McVey, Thank you for your message. I am very sorry to hear that you are having trouble getting in touch with us. I am doing my best to answer your question but TripAdvisor will not allow me to include an email address in my reply. I have even tried writing out the email address in words but TripAdvisor still blocks my message. So, you could send me a message via TripAdvisor or you can find out email address on our website (I would give you a link to our website but TripAdvisor blocks that too). Or you can ring us on +44 1770 600559. Reception is open between 8am and 11am every day. If all else fails you could message me your phone number and I will give you a ring. One way or another I hope that we manage to get in touch with each other. regards, Geoffrey

we have 2 small cairns do you allow dogs
Thank you for getting in touch with us. We do not allow dogs in the building. We tried it for a year and the general feedback from our guests was that they prefer to know that there are no dogs in the building. However, I do know two hotels on the island that do accept dogs are the Auchrannie in Brodick and the Lamlash Bay in Lamlash. If you come to Arran I hope that you'll still drop in and see us for a coffee or a meal.
