Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Great location and experience
Great little cottage. More of an efficiency apartment in many ways but perfect for the two of us. Very comfortable

Peaceful retreat.
Lovely location, easy to find, and convenient to explore the island by car and bus. The bungalow is well appointed with a comfy bed. The owners are very welcoming and helpful. A delight to sit and watch the red squirrels and birds feeding whilst eating breakfast.

A very enjoyable holiday!
We were very pleased with the comfortable and well equipped cottage. It was clean and well presented. We looked out to Holy Island and Lamlash bay, it was beautiful! Red squirrels visited the garden! The cottage is in a very good position to easily reach other parts of the island. A very enjoyable holiday!

Our new family tradition!
This was our second trip staying at the lovely Dean Lodge and it won’t be our last! We first stayed in 2016 for our honeymoon and returned two years later with our new addition, our daughter :) We have decided that Lamlash, specifically Dean Lodge!, will be a new family tradition of ours - we just love it! Beautiful views, cosy home and the fantastic PierHead Tavern pub just a little walk away haha! I highly recommend Dean Lodge x

Lodge with a view!
Lovely comfortable place to stay for 2 weeks within walking distance of pubs and cafes and the co - op. Fabulous to have views out of your window, Arran is a lovely place to visit, plenty to visit, lots of good walking. Weather changes very quickly but all very relaxing. Couldn't have asked for anything else from Dean Lodge, red squirrels and lots of birds in the garden to keep us amused. Lovely local welcome basket as well.

Beautiful Cottage
This is a lovely holiday setting and the cottage is very well appointed with a high level of comfort. The views are lovely and, although it is situated next to the Island's cottage hospital, it is very quiet. Lamlash is a reasonably large (in Arran terms!) with shops and eating places very close by. The welcome basket of Arran groceries is a lovely touch. We would very very happy to return at some point in the future and would recommend Dean Lodge to others. Lovely place.

Lovely cottage in beautiful setting
Dean Lodge is a very well equipped home from home in a lovely setting with beautiful views over Lamlash Bay. Margaret & Iain were very helpful and friendly hosts. We were provided with a welcome basket of tasty Arran treats and, because it was my husband's birthday, a bottle of wine also. There's a squirrel feeder outside the front window and we were able to watch the red squirrels feeding whilst we ate our breakfast. The cottage is in an ideal location, up a slight incline, and within easy walking distance to the shops and eateries in Lamlash . We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely go back.

Arran Excellence!
Arrived and was met by both Margaret and Iain. Car parking arrangement is ideal. A very friendly and informal welcome with a good introduction to the features of the property. Our dogs were welcomed too. Initial impressions were very good with the layout of the house being ideal, clean and very well equipped. A welcome basket was provided with local produce - a nice touch. Enclosed decking works really well for safely containing the dogs. We are on day 5 of our 7 day stay and are thoroughly enjoying it. It is simply a lovely place to be!
