Just returned from a wonderful week at the Best Western Kinloch Hotel on Arran. Met by a cheerful receptionist who helped me recall my car registration during a "senior citizen moment" by smilingly asking what colour it was and did it have 4 wheels. The staff from start to finish were wonderfully helpful, cheerful and relaxed. We were directed to park round the back of the hotel so my elderly mother didnt have far to walk. On observing next morning that the hotel was Marmite-free, the dining-room Manager appeared 5 minutes later with a brand new jar of Marmite! Amazing. My room overlooked the sea where it was easy to pick out seals posing on rocks for photo-shoots. Since the hotel is dog-friendly, we could enjoy walks along the coastal route or directly on the beach or miles through the nearby golf course (of which there were many). En suite bathrooms with shower over the bath appear to have been recently updated. The only drawback was the rooms with walk-in shower for my elderly mother were to the back with no view. Dinner was bistro-style and no evening dress code. Again, staff amazing in that they were very willing to mix and match items on the menu to suite personal preference. Lounge was a bit dark for my mother to sit in with her paper (which isnt delivered till later in the morning off the ferry). I felt the venetian blinds could have been raised to allow in more light and the furniture chosen to resemble a lounge rather than a study. Folk made good use of the indoor swimming pool, snooker room and surrounding golf courses. A memorable holiday made more so by amazing scenery and cheerful obliging staff
