Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Small hotel in the quiet village of Carradale, great place to stop. Lovely hosts, warm and welcoming. Rooms were lovely clean and comfortable with tea and coffee to enjoy in your room. Breakfast was lovely and with lots of choice from lighter continental to a full scottish breakfast which was delicious. There is a full stocked bar to relax and enjoy a local drink and the lounge was cosy with a fire,. The village itself is lovely to have a walk around and look across to Arran from the pier.

We arrived very early and thought we’d see if our room was ready , we’re greeted by owner and in no uncertain terms he told us that we needed to come back at 3pm earliest . I’d wasn’t very friendly . When we went back his attitude was totally different . Room was great but shower in bath and Im not sure how a less mobile person would be able to get in . Breakfast was excellent and we were made to feel very welcome . Good experience after dodgy start

Ashbank Hotel was a favorite stop of ours on our honeymoon, and our hosts treated us very well. The hotel is small and cozy and quiet. The rooms are not large, but have everything you need. The bar and sitting area downstairs were a great hang out space for guests and locals alike. We had a tasty breakfast at the hotel in the morning, and our hosts gave us good recommendations for where to get dinner in town in the evening. We loved walking around the small village of Carradale around our hotel and down to the harbor.

We recently spent two nights at the Ashbank. Upon arrival we were offered tea and coffee and give the key to our well appointed room, which was very comfortable and very clean. John and Sharon are a font of knowledge of the area and gave us good advise on where to visit. We left Carradale feeling that we had known John and Sharon for years.

We stayed midweek for two nights only, on recommendation by family. It's easy to find, on the main road in town, has parking off-street, and our room had a good view over the golf course and other countryside to the sea and (I think) Arran. A comfy room, nicely decorated, very clean, ensuite looks quite new. The shower cubicle was slightly "snug" - though that is really on me! I think all rooms are upstairs, so not really for anyone not too good on their legs. Dining room was not open during our stay, due to covid - continental breakfast delivered to our room (quite acceptable in the circumstances), and they could provide a bar service to guests in the lounge or in their room. A really nice place, friendly hostess, and would return again if I'm in the area - would recommend.

This hotel is cheap and cheerful. I booked a single room while working in the area, the rooms are small and compact, very clean and the bed was comfortable. There is a great atmosphere in the bar in the evening and owners are friendly and approachable. Excellent breakfast. Will return if in the area.

What a lovely B&B in a quiet area of the beautiful Kintyre. Amazing interior, the beds were so comfortable and the breakfast was really tasty. The owners are such lovely people. We had a little inconveniance and had to cancel one night, they gave our refund immediately. Hidden gem!!

Just stayed 2 nights at this lovely little hotel in the heart of the pretty village of Carradale. The village has pretty well everything you need- post office and shop, a number of lovely cafes and a couple of restaurants ( currently need to be booked ahead). Ashbank is run by a lovely couple, who work very hard to make it a really great place for guests. Their little bar with outdoor seating was the perfect end to the day. The rooms are immaculate, clean and cosy. The breakfast is delicious and very filling. Covid precautions are well designed and working well, without making things inhuman. There are so many walks starting from the village which take in bays, beaches, forests, but our favourite was Deer Hill Trail which took us to a viewpoint where we could look down on the village harbour, the bay and views across to the mountains of Arran. Super visit. Great memories.

My partner was brought up in the village so we go once a year and have never tried the ash bank before but we were pleasantly surprised. We sat outside where they had a few table and chairs and was made very welcome by the owner and the passer boy’s. We both used the toilet on different visits and it was clean. We will definitely go back on our next visit and I’m sure my partner will enjoy all the whiskeys again😜
