This is a small(5 bedrooms)Highland hotel with a big heart. Ask for a room at the rear and you will look out over the golf course to the sea with views of the Firth of Clyde and Ailsa Craig-lovely! Breakfast is a veritable feast -be aware the portions are huge.

The hotel rooms are quaint and what you would expect. We were very pleased with the service, especially in the restaurant.

Good people and good value.

Another fantastic stay at the Ashbank, lovley to go back to a hotel and be remembered by the owners. Carradale is such a lovley village you are made to feel very welcome by all. Stay at Ashbank as good as last with amazing food and new specials so we had plenty to choose from. Still very busy even in October so we had to compromise on dates to get in but it was well worth it. Well done girls and thank you for a lovely stay, we will be back!!

We don't understand the good reviews for this hotel. Be aware that this is really a B&B, an average one, charging hotel prices while missing basic hotel comforts as follows: grey seen-better-days towels, no toiletries apart from a tube of handwash, no biscuits with the tea/coffee, television with indoor aerial showing 3 fuzzy channels, no wifi, no guest lounge to escape from the bedrooms. Our bedrooms had cruddy heaters and carpets and a lingering damp smell. We can't commemt on the food as we didn't eat there apart from breakfast, which was a good one. If they made these changes and opened up a classy lounge, this could be a a lot better. Not recommended for more than one night,

Stayed here with our miniature schnauzer for two enjoyable evenings as part of a tour of the West Coast of Scotland. Made to feel very welcome although the bedroom was a little on the small side but offset by the excellent evening meal and hearty breakfast.
A good place to stay for touring Kintyre and would certainly stay there again

Friendly, welcoming, clean and tidy. Good food at reasonable prices. The hotel is much like the village it is in where total strangers say hello and pass the time of day with you. Very pleasing experience.

What a really lovely little hotel this is. We arrived totally on spec, on a Saturday afternoon, with not alot of options in the area for accomodation, and the owner could not have been more helpful. She re-arranged beds and rooms and while we were having our evening meal ( even a half an hour after the kitchen had closed and food had finished ) our rooms were prepared. The kids loved it, especially the resident cat, we all slept sound, and had a great hearty breakfast the next morning, before we traveled onwards.
A couple of guests provided the Sat night entertainment, and we all had a sing song.
A short walk to Carradale beach , to walk off the breakfast, and therev is also the golf course 200 yards away.

A truly delightful little hotel in a beautiful wee part of kintyre... A must see !!!
