Glenisle Hotel

Small Hotel

Shore Road, Lamlash, Isle Of Arran, KA27 8LY

    Officially acknowledged as the Best Small Hotel in Scotland at the Scottish Hotel Awards 2014, the Glenisle is an ancient island inn which has been lovingly refurbished. This is Arran at its best.

    This charming, ancient island inn is now an award-winning boutique hotel. Nestled in the charming village of Lamlash the hotel boasts one of the most beautiful locations on the Isle of Arran; looking across Lamlash Bay toward the Holy Isle which rises 1,000 feet out of the sea. The Glenisle was honoured at the 2012 Scottish Hotel Awards, scooping up a the Island Hotel of the Year award as well as winning a Gold Medal for Hospitality for the second year running. 

    No one knows when the hotel was built but it is probably one of the oldest hotels on the island and most likely dates from the middle of the eighteenth century. The entire hotel was refurbished in 2008 and guests now comment on the freshness of the rooms and the sense of relaxation and charm. 

    The inspiration for the interior redesign has been Arran itself. The colours reflect the heather of the hills, the grey of driftwood and the shifting colours of the sea. In this characterful, old building every bedroom has been individually designed; each has a different colour scheme, some have gabled windows, some look over our walled garden and some look directly across the sea to the Holy Isle. 

    The Glenisle Restaurant is a favourite of locals and visitors alike because of its excellent food and friendly, relaxed ambiance. The menu changes with the seasons and the chefs delight in producing mouth-watering dishes from the produce of the region as it becomes available. 

    Once you have experienced Arran from the comfort of the Glenisle Hotel you might find yourself, like so many others, coming back year after year for a regular break which both relaxes and revitalises.
