Nice place, good location close to centre of town. Room quite small but clean, good breakfast too. Good value for money, especially in Arran where most places seem very expensive. A bit noisy at weekends with disco on in bar downstairs but didn'the go on too late!

Nice stay, very friendly staff. Everything clean. Breakfast very tasty.
We originally booked a family room, as that was all that was left, but were phoned and asked if we'd switch to a twin as another party wanted a bigger room. They said we would get a twin room with a sea view, so we didn't mind. They also gave us a reduction which was appreciated. However, when we arrived the room had a beer-cellar view rather than a sea view. It was a lovely room though, so we didn't bother saying anything. Unfortunately it was also the room above the bar and the very loud music started at 10.30 and finished at possibly 1am ish, making sleeping somewhat difficult (my friend has a medical condition meaning she gets tired and needs a lot of sleep). They seemed also to be playing the music outside via a loudspeaker, even though there was nobody in the garden. I used to work in a hotel with one of these noisy over-the-bar rooms, and understand how horrible it is dreading every Sat and Sun morning when guests start moaning at you, so we did not mention the noise at the time (and therefore did not give them the chance to redress it).
Other than this our stay was lovely, so would thoroughly recommend this hotel, so long as you request not to be in the room above the bar!

We were travelling via Arran to Kintyre with a small toddler and a dog. The prospect of staying in a hotel did not fill us with joy, but the Ormidale made us feel most welcome. The food was very good and the room was perfect for our needs and the garden and wider surroundings perfect for letting off steam (for both the dog and our daughter!) in the evening after a day in the car and first thing in the morning for building up an appetite for breakfast. We made it down to the beach and had bananas and sandcastles first thing before breakfast which is served at nine. The family were most welcoming. We were just sorry to miss the folk music night!

Had a great wee break at the Ormidale. As a couple who enjoy wee breaks away decided to try Brodick for a change. We arrived at the Hotel and was shown a room with 2 single beds, not very cosy! We decided to have a drink in the well stocked bar where we also enjoyed a fine meal right next to the log fire - magic. We had a great night where we were treated to the local folk music musicians, not my kind of music but enjoyable none the same.
The breakfast in the morning was excellent with a fair choice from cereal, porridge to a full breakfast, kippers etc. with coffee, tea, orange juice etc.
Would we go back? that's easy a defo yes but will make it the full weekend the next time and try and climb Goat Fell (weather permiting). A big thankyou to the staff at The Ormidale for making us welcome.

Room Tip: If your going as a couple make sure you ask for a double.

I booked this hotel for a flying visit to Arran, what a great choice lovely friendly place. The hotel is also the best pub in Brodick and on the night I stayed it was Quiz Night, the place was packed. I had an excellent breakfast, much needed after enjoying the hospitality of the excellent bar the night before.
