Opened In 1849

The location, looking directly across the sea to the majestic Holy Isle is certainly one of the most spectacular on this beautiful island. Since a major refurbishment in 2008 the Glenisle Hotel & Restaurant is establishing a reputation throughout Scotland for its warm and stylish ambiance and its great, relaxed atmosphere.

Hotel Features

During your visit to the Glenisle Hotel, you will realise how perfect our hotel is – from our restaurant and bar to our library and lounge.

restaurant
RESTAURANT
Our chefs take pride in each dish they prepare using local and seasonal ingredients. Our menus are altered to suit each season and take full advantage of the best of the local produce. We've chosen soothing colours to exposed the sandstone walls and polished wooden floorboards to make a great place to relax and enjoy the food, wine and the company.
bar
BAR & SNUG
The Talisman Bar is named after the steamer which used to travel between Glasgow and Lamlash. We stock a good range of Arran whiskies and Ales as well as the standard fare. We are also happy to serve espresso, cappucino, latte plus other coffees. We are very proud of our range of teas which is the easily the largest on the island.
lounge
LIBRARY & LOUNGE
The Library & Lounge is the perfect place to relax with a good book, meet friends for a game of bridge or scrabble (we'll supply the cards and the scrabble board), or just relax with a drink. Situated right at the front of the building it has stunning views over Lamlash Bay towards the Holy Isle. In the colder weather the open fire makes it a cosy retreat.
terrace
TERRACE & GARDENS
To the side of the hotel is our large, historic, walled garden and terrace which provide an oasis of calm around the hotel. Enjoy lunch, morning coffee or afternoon tea and cakes (including a scrumptious cream tea with scones and locally made jam) on the terrace while enjoying some of the best views on the island, overlooking Lamlash Bay and the Holy Isle.

What a perfect Island hotel. Right on the beach. We stayed in the suite at the top – with a view that made all the stress of life melt away instantly. A gorgeous room… and it’s hard to imagine anything more luxurious than lying in an enormous roll top bath looking out across the sea to the stunning Holy Isle. Can’t say how perfect this place is – amazing food, beautiful rooms, wonderful staff and every corner is just beautifully designed. We are already planning a return.

aving stayed last year and booked again at check out, we were really looking forward to another stay. Fantastic evening meal last night and again at lunch – the special mushroom risotto at lunch was amazing. We are looking forward to the launch of the new dinner menu this evening and have already had a sneak preview and tasting. Checking diaries to arrange another visit when the weather gets better. Such a lovely experience and well worth the visit.

Intended to stay two nights but due to the weather had to stay longer, could not have picked a better place to be stuck at. The staff were extremely helpful in finding us accommodation especially the owner (Anne) she was of the opinion that “nothing was a problem”, the rooms and meals were first class and would definitely recommend this hotel.

Back again to the Glenisle for New Year- friendly attentive service, fantastic food, lovely rooms. A house party like atmosphere for a memorable new year. Everyone at the hotel knows how to make you feel welcome and comfortable. A great place to go.

We had a warm welcome at this lovely hotel which has a homely feel about it. It is ideally located and has beautiful views. The room was perfect and had nice extras such as binoculars and Arran Aromatic toiletries. The new owners were very friendly as were all the staff we encountered. We didn’t have dinner in the hotel but the breakfast was amazing.

We had a very pleasant stay at Glenisle Hotel. The breakfast is lovely. They prepare it fresh in the kitchen and additionally offer fruit and drinks for self service. The staff is so friendly and the room very clean and comfy. We recommend it to 100% and would return

Stunning location, beautiful view from our room, excellent food, fine selection of Arran whisky and ale, hospitable hosts and excellent and friendly staff. We had a lovely room overlooking the bay and the Holy Isle- nice touches with local shortbread, water and toiletries. Will definitely be back!

Lovely hotel, great situation and fantastic staff who made us feel very welcome. Room was beautiful and there’s a real cosy feel about the place. Lamlash is a great village to base your adventures from Arran from too. We’ll be back!

We stayed at the Glenisle for just one night, picking up a last minute booking. There was a personal welcome letter, with friendly and efficient staff across the board. We had a delightful meal in the bistro – which was worth booking ahead for – and found the room spacious, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was a huge spread and set us up for a day of walking.

Would definitely recommend staying here when you visit Arran!

We spent one night here and can only say that from being upgraded to The Premier Suite to all the wonderful staff we couldn’t find any fault with The Glenisle Hotel. We are looking forward to returning to such lovely hospitality and would highly recommend this lovely hotel.

We have just returned from a super holiday on Arran. We had a few wet days but it didn’t change the scenery or the warm hospitality of The Glenisle Hotel. GREAT staff, so genuine and friendly. Lovely room , large comfortable bed, chairs and decor. The food was delicious as well . We will definitely return.
