We stayed in room # 1 which has an amazing view of the water and the island. The room and bed were both spacious and comfortable, with beautiful furnishings and then there is the bathroom which is almost as large as some rooms I've stayed in. Huge tub in the bathroom, perfect for a nice soak after a day of hiking and touring. Our hostess, Louise, grew up on the island and was a wealth of information about island sites, places to eat, transportation, culture, etc. The only downside was we were there for only 2 days - we want to return and stay at least a week next time.

We booked two front rooms at Hunters some time ago for our party but had concerns when we read Sand dancer 99's review three weeks ago. And sad to say, none of the issues have been addressed! The guest house is in a superb location both for the view and for touring Arran. Caroline & Louise were informative and helpful, Caroline going out of her way to make sure we were set up in the "snug" when we decided to eat in - what a worthwhile facility for touring guests.
But the quirks in room 1 were all there; some we could accept as impractical to remedy in the middle of a season but others like the poor water pressure, the loose toilet seat and the lack of a table and lamp on both sides of the bed were downright inconvenient. They didn't spoil a great experience but do need to be sorted out.
We also had a misunderstanding as to the additional cost for breakfast which, unusually, is not included in the room rate, so make sure you are clear on this when you book.

Room Tip: Try for a front facing room.

Glad to hear that you and your friends enjoyed your stay overall despite the "irritations" which I am sorry your encountered.
Water pressure is a bit of a mystery. I am only assuming this is in the bathroom sink as the shower runs off " mains water". We have had a Pump installed to accommodate the Roll Top bath in room 2 and the wash hand basins upstairs which is on between 7am and 11pm and so whether this was outwith these hours I am not sure. The toilet seat we had fixed after the previous comment however this has now been replaced and seems to be fine. Table and lamp was an oversight which could have easily been addressed at the time if we had been aware - apologies!
Regarding the " Room only" rate matter you raised - this has been done by popular demand. We offer both an extensive Continental and also a Full Scottish Breakfast which is served up until 9 am and guests can book this the night before. There is also the option of a later breakfast/brunch at a number of local establishments.

£75 per night for 2people & £7.50 for full breakfast or £3.50 for small. Stayed 2 nights.
Fantastic views over the water in our front facing twin or double room. Large, with nice comfy beds, large modern bathroom, walk in shower, toiletries. Room had large overall space, 2 chairs, small couch, tea/ coffee etc. one negative is the small tv.
" snug " area next door for guests to use, fridge, micro, iron/table large tv couch, chairs, table for 4 glasses, crockery , cutlery etc ideal area for a bit if easy self catering.
Breakfast was great in the downstairs dining/breakfast area, good selection, cereal, juice, cheese, fresh bread, yogurts etc & a cooked breakfast.
The furnishings are traditional in the bedrooms, (bathroom modern/sleek) and communal areas.
The house was clean, fresh and well presented. Staff very welcoming and helpful, owner very nice and informative and very accommodating.
This is a very nice, comfortable guest house with warm hospitality. Not overly expensive by any means and has the added facility of the snug area which gives it an added dimension.
I have no hesitation in recommending this place & will have no hesitation going back.
As an aside we moved on to a self catering house about half a mile on & stayed for 3 nights....wish we hadn't bothered as wasn't a patch on Hunters Guest house.

Room Tip: Obviously the sea front rooms have the view and appear to be the biggest, both of these rooms are very good, one has a contemporary bath and one has contemporary shower.

If you want great views of the sea and Goatfell this is the place to stay. We were lucky with the weather and loved the sunset over the bay. Caroline was very helpful when a minor problem with the power supply caused a shower problem in the lovely bathroom. The breakfast was very good and the short walk to the ferry didn't give us time to walk it off!! Good value for money. Mick

Room Tip: Either room 1 or 2 gives a sea view

We stayed for three nights on a bank holiday weekend. Booked the room with sea view which was beautiful. Loved the en suite shower room very spacious and modern. Large comfortable bed. The hosts Caroline and Louise are very friendly and welcoming and breakfast is delicious and freshly made. There are a great variety of eating places in Brodick, something to suit everyone. We would highly recommend a stay at Hunters

Room Tip: lovely sea view rooms
