We usually stay at Auchrannie when we visit Arran but the prices they quoted were very high so decided to look elsewhere. Decided on the Douglas and we (eight of us) were not disappointed. The hotel is just opposite the ferry at Brodick. The quality and finish of the hotel is really superb - first class. Loved the decor. The rooms are lovely - very spacious, luxurious and well equipped. The home made shortbread in the room was delicious and a really nice touch compared to the usual bought biscuits. There were three people in our room and only two cups and saucers, but a phonecall to reception rectifed this. The room we stayed in (107) was great but the bath was steeper than the average. Not a problem for us but may be difficult for some to step in and out of. We changed our original booking to the Valentine offer and enjoyed one dinner, two nights bed and breakfast and a bottle of prosecco per room. A great deal. Reception staff were very helpful. Dinner, which was a tad slow to be served (the restaurant was busy) was really delicious. I personally enjoyed every single mouthful! Breakfast was cooked to order. A nice selection of prepared fruits; yoghurt, croissants etc to serve yourself. One member of our party felt that some items on his cooked breakfast was a bit cool but apart from that we all enjoyed breakfast.
