We spent 3 nights at Dean Lodge and enjoyed every minute of our stay. The lodge is really well equipped, it's furnished to a high standard and to top it off it has a great view looking onto the Holy Isle. There is some great places to eat and drink nearby and a decent sized shop in the village to stock up on supplies. Top marks all round, have already recommended it to friends and family.

“After a wild windy day on Arran, its good to come home to Dean Lodge”
Reviewed 22 February 2015 for a stay in January 2015

We love to travel in the off season, when it's quiet and there are not too many people around. A warm and comfortable place to stay is essential when you travel in winter and the weather can get rough. Luckily we only had one day when we experienced the Arran weather.So we loved being able to come home to sit by the fire after having a hot shower and a slow cooked(our own slow cooker) meal with a nice bottle of red,looking out at the view.Dean Lodge was just right for us. We were warmly welcomed by Margaret and Iain who made sure we had everything we needed before leaving us to it. Before getting there I was fairly sceptical about the squirrels and Iain said it "maybe too cold for them to be coming" but to our delight they were regular visitors to the feeding station outside the windows, along with the robins and bluetits. Loved the walks along the coast and the abundant wildlife.Loved the pubs and the little cafe on the pier which became a regular afternoon treat. Now the serious negative parts... erm... sorry...apart from the lack of a slow cooker, there are none... Perfect place,perfect hosts, loved it, we could have stayed a month easilIy,hope to go back sometime.

Yes, the red squirrels really do come to the feed just outside the window and run about the garden! We were in the apartment yesterday when one was there and I sneaked away for the camera but it had gone. The squirrel photos I have taken are mostly from our kitchen window next door. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay, it was lovely to meet you. Thank you for your wonderful review. Don't be "slow" in asking for anything - choice of 2 slow cookers is now available on request !

Unfortunately we were never able to stay at the lodge due to ferrys being cancelled because of weather conditions. However the owner Margaret is one of the nicest people, I have ever been in contact. Simple things like giving us a weather report to let us know the conditions, really make the difference. Honestly can't wait to book when the weather gets better! Constant contact between us and helping with the situation is what makes her stand out!

Thank you, we try to provide everything you need in a "home from home" so you can just bring yourself and what you need and have a relaxing time enjoying the view from the decking or inside the house. It can be so annoying to arrive in a self catering cottage and then find you have to go and buy such mundane things as bin bags or dishwasher tablets.We do that for you so you can make the most of your visit.

Thank you so much, your review is much appreciated. We are glad you, as welll as many others, felt at home as that is what we have tried to achieve. We want people to know they are coming on holiday to a place they can relax in peace and comfort and not have to bother about having to bring mundane things like washing up liquid or dishwasher tablets. Just bring yourself and what you need personally.We loved your comments about the photos as it is sometimes difficult to capture the true beauty and feeling of a place in a photograph
