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😜

Sharon and John are exceptional hosts helping to tailor this holiday to our individual needs. Very friendly and relaxed ambience; delicious breakfasts and comfortable socially distant tables. Bedroom had a beautiful view to the coast and a large comfy bed. Sharon was very helpful with tips for local walks and where to eat and book for an evening meal. Thanks to them both for helping us enjoy such a relaxed holiday.

A lovely B&B in the peaceful setting of Campbeltown, with clean and modern accommodation, off-road parking and excellent breakfasts. Very good value for money. Sharon and John could not have been more welcoming and helpful and we'd definitely stay there again. Nearby attractions are a very good pub/restaurant, golf course and quaint harbour. Highly recommended.

This is hotel is more in the nature of being a pub with rooms available. Bedroom quite small for two people and suitcases. There was nowhere really to unpack and store clothes Bathroom small with shower with plenty of boiling hot water. No shelf space in the bathroom for toiletries. I had to use the toilet seat for my toiletries when using the bathroom. Our room had twin beds, which were very comfortable. Both the bedroom and bathroom were very clean Generally the hotel was in good decorative order. There were clear instructions as to how to connect to the wifi. However, I found connecting heavy going and would prefer a simpler password and an obvious network and not a bewildering array of wifi extenders. Lack of accessible power points to charge a mobile Need to place kettle on the floor to boil was a danger The view from our bedroom was over a golf course and out to sea with Arran in the distance. Well-proportioned cooked breakfast, which we needed to order during the evening before. Generally we enjoyed our stay and are happy to recommend the place.
