Welcome to the Douglas Hotel Website 2021

COVID-19 Confidence

As life begins to return to normal and we enjoy a taste of well-deserved freedom, please note it is still mandatory by law in Scotland for face-coverings to be worn in all indoor public settings and on public transport, subject to existing exemptions.

Please help us to keep each other safe by sanitising your hands (we have hand-sanitiser dispensers throughout the Hotel) and by wearing your mask whilst moving round the Hotel. If our Team have to politely remind you that masks must be worn, please do not be offended, they are simply following the law.

In addition, please be advised we are still required to take contact track & trace details for all guests dining indoors and, although not mandatory, we recommend you check in using the NHS Check in Scotland App.


For any accommodation enquires please check our rates & availability from our website BOOKING tab above. Alternatively, email stay@thedouglashotel.co.uk or call one of our friendly team on 01770 302968.

Please note to guarantee our best available rates and special offers, including dinner inclusive packages, we advise you book with us direct! All discounted rates and special offers are exclusive to direct bookings and unavailable on third party websites.


We are open daily from 10am for tea, coffee, scones, light snacks & refreshments.

Our menus are the same for all areas and can be viewed from the website MENU tab above.

Lunch is served in our Bar & Outside Terraces from 12noon to 4.30pm daily. These tables are only available on a first come, first served basis and cannot be pre-booked.

Dinner is served 5pm to 9pm daily in our Bistro, Bar and Outside Terraces. We welcome bookings online for Non-Resident guests wishing to dine between 5pm-6.30pm / 8.15pm-9pm, the MENU tab above will direct you to dining availability & bookings.

Of course, Non-Resident guests may dine between 6.45pm-8pm, however, we can only take bookings on the day from 1pm. This is to ensure our Hotel Residents secure their preferred dining time as priority. Simply call us on 01770 302968 or email dine@thedouglashotel.co.uk from 1pm on the day to make a booking.

The bar closes at midnight 7 days a week.


Well-behaved Dogs are always welcome in our Bar and all outside areas of the Hotel.

Dogs staying with their PAWrents (booked by prior arrangement in a dog-friendly room) are now also welcome in the Bistro at breakfast where we have a designated dog-friendly area. Unfortunately, this area is unavailable in the evenings for Dinner, however, the Bar is the perfect alternative boasting beautiful sea-views!


If you are travelling to Arran with your car, or as a foot passenger, it remains essential to book. Following the removal of social distancing, ferry capacity has increased to the original capacity, however, as demand continues to be high it is strongly recommended that you book in advance where possible. Additional info can be found on Caledonian MacBrayne’s website https://www.calmac.co.uk/

We wish you the very best of health and look forward to welcoming you to our beautiful Island - where the mountain scenery, fresh sea air and warmest welcome awaits!

Take care & stay safe,

The Douglas Hotel Team
