    Seabank reviews
    Absolutely loved staying here. The cottage was clean and spacious for a such a large group. Absolutely loved the view from the front of the cottage and saw lots of seals. Facilities excellent and the chocolate biscuits were a great touch. Having towels and bedding was really helpful so shame this is not going to be continued in the future. Also there were quite a lot of ants in the kitchen so there may be a nest somewhere but not a major problem. Really great and would definitely come back!! Thanks!
    Owners Response: "Thank you for your lovely review and so glad you enjoyed your stay at Seabank but please note we will continue to supply towels and linen."
    Miss Mcgrellis - April 2017
    Was looking for a house in Arran and stumbled upon this place. Looked lovely on the website but they do not do justice to how fantastic this property is. The garden stretches all the way to the road with the beach 15 feet away. There was a Seal show on the rocks every night right in front of you. Huge well equipped kitchen. Old raeburn stove. The sitting room is great. Plenty of fire wood and coal in the shed. The bedrooms were comfortable and clean. It's a bit dated but suits the style of the house. DVDs and plenty of books on the shelves. Really is a great place to stay. Pricey - but you get what you pay for. Already planning a trip back same time next year.
    Dr Hay - April 2017
    A good located Family holiday home, with lovely views across Lamlash Bay to Holy Isle. Although we were there in early April, we still required the heating on in the bedrooms. Although the beds were good, personally thought that they were too soft as we are more used to a harder bed. Kitchen area with aga, and dining area was superb for cooking and preparing meals as there were two high 'preparation tables' with metal tops. Plenty of crockery, cutlery and pots and pans. Housekeeper came out as requested when hot water was air-locked and showed us how to self-repair !! Good sloping garden, which did not stop us playing football with grandchildren. Enjoyed watching seals and one of us saw an otter !! Only down-side we thought was that for a family house, there should have been a gate on the drive, to prevent dogs and most importantly children from going onto the Shore Road that runs at the foot of the garden.
    Mr Clark - April 2017
    Our family of 8 enjoyed Christmas and New Year at Seabank in 2016. The house is great for big get togethers as has loads of space and a super big kitchen with adjacent utility rooms. There are a few idiosyncrasies with the plumbing/hot water which we overcame. And we weren't very adept at keep the fire lit... However, these were minor issues. The outdoor space is great too and views stupendous. In the winter, make sure you have illuminated clothing/torch for walking to and from the village. We mostly drove or took a taxi home after dark. Cathy the housekeeper most helpful too. Recommended.
    Mrs Mcbride - December 2016
    Excellent house for large family gatherings. Garden very good for children and young adults playing. The view was stunning- with basking seals every morning and evening. Went kayaking from bottom of garden and were followed by seals watching us. Lots of space for all the family within the houses. Kitchen well appointed and large open space very good. Excellent large fridge freezer. Only slight negative was it was cold the first day but as soon as we turned the heaters on and set the open fire the house warmed up. Booked again for next year.
    Dr Barker - April 2015
    We throughly enjoyed our recent stay at Seabank. It had everything that we needed for a group of 9 adults including a magnificent view over to Holy Island. We had a few problems with the Rayburn which was not working but the Arran Team sorted out an alternative in double quick time.
    Mrs Hamilton - November 2014
    We've been coming to Seabank for over 10 years and it never disappoints. This year the new enlarged sitting room was a pleasant surprise.
    Dr Auld - May 2014
    Great Location facing the sea and Holy Isle with a lovely walk along the sea road. The house was old in it's decor but felt quite good. Plenty of space on the front lawn and great if you have children. The beds were a bit hard for us and there was a smell from the downstairs bedroom which suggested dog wee so we did not use. The sound of many birds in the back garden was delightful and we had great weather so overall very happy. The Lamlash Hotel provided a good meal out.
    Mrs Gregory - May 2014
    Positives Excellent location set back from the sea 100yds or so with good views of holy island, seals and various birdlife. Good place for sea kayakers with good launch as well as ample outdoor space to store. Good value with coal and fuel inclusive; close enough to the village; another lounge to get away from - which we didn't use. Comfy beds; 3 toilets; 2 showers - maybe no single remarkable thing but it was a good all rounder and I don't think any of our group of 9 30-50 active 30-40 somethings had any complaints beyond niggle. We've stayed in more expensive NY accom in better weather and not had as good an experience so id call that an endorsement. Negatives A drying room would have been nice; DVD player was infuriating; wet room was a bit poky and stays damp; showers were nice and hot if not overly powerful; its an older house with single glazing and mainly electric heating so it was draughty (it was very windy) but with a fire going and a home made draught excluder things were cosier; front lounge was a little small for 9 but only niggles; décor etc was a bit old and faded but not something we cared about - really all of these were niggles and although its not star in the strictest sense it was good value, warmed up, good location so id recommend it to anyone who isn't too picky about high spec décor etc.
    Mr Webb - December 2013
    We wrote to the Arran Team with our observations which I believe they have handed on to the owners. This has been our 5th. visit to Seabank, and while it suits us fine, we feel a lot of improvements should be made. People look for en-suite now and the only room with it's own bathroom is a TOTAL DISASTER - cold and floods. We feel people would be happy to pay for better facilities. Hence I have only awarderd 3* for an house that is worth a lot more. The HUGE plus for the house is it's location, and we enjoy the cooking/dining area + view. Once again we had a great meal at the GlenIsle Hotel, Lamlash, and enjoyed the welcome and home baking at Coast, Whiting Bay, but we see this is for sale now - pity. Fish. Or lack of. We had a bad experience with Creelers several years ago, but we did come across a van from Ayr that delivers Tuesdays and Fridays(?). Too late for us this year but made a note for the future. Golf - fantastic, friendly and helpful. We were impressed by the lunches we had in the clubhouses. We all meet up every 18 months so would not be going in 2014, but we look forward to hearing of any improvements at Seabank. Anyway I have your brochure.
    Mr Mciver - September 2013
    Seabank is the perfect holiday home, especially for larger families, and those with dogs. We couldn't find a single thing to criticise it for, so I'm not going to start now. It had a 'separate' bedroom, sitting-room, and bathroom downstairs which was ideal for a family member gets up early, and two more bathrooms upstairs along with four more bedrooms - each more than big enough for our needs. The house has wi-fi which was incredibly easy to connect to, and has all of the usual household appliances you would need. We loved Seabank and thought it was the best cottge we had stayed in on Arran (out of around 10 cottages).
    Mr Mitchell - August 2013
    We love Seabank. We book it every year. Its not all flash and new but its got wonderful character, a location you cant beat and is always clean and comfortable. We keep kayaks nearby and can walk out of the gate across the road and drop them in to the sea. This year we paddled over to Holy Isle for a coffee in their welcome hut. Hope to have many more happy summer holidays in Seabank to come.
    Mr Mcgeoch - July 2013
    We all loved this house. Lots of space and character. Fabulous location and views plus short walk into Lamlash. Kitchen was amazing with lots of space and well equipped. We hope to be back next year.
    Mrs Breslin - July 2013
    House was great and very well equipped, although a Hoover/carpet sweeper would have been a useful addition. The house was very clean and just as described although the website did say enclosed garden which I found misleading as the driveway which leads off the garden had no gate or fence......
    Mrs Rennie - June 2013
    Seabank is a lovely old house which is superbly equipped-you lack for nothing. The bedrooms are large and comfortable. It is quiet but has easy access to Lamlash. The views over the bay to Holy isle are beautiful.The bathrooms are spacious.The house is warm apart from certain seats in the lounge where draughts from the old windows and door come in-there is always a rush to get the seats beside the fire. It is very good value with all heating supplied and open fires.
    Mr Peters - May 2013
    Seabank is a beautiful old house full of character in a fantastic position overlooking Lamlash Bay and the Holy Isle. It was very clean and well equipped. However we were unaware when booking that the house does not have central heating and unfortunately it was a particularly cold Easter. We therefore found the house v cold and difficult to heat. There was a wood burning stove and real fire but having no experience of these we did not feel confident to try them out. Also the windows and doors were very draughty. Overall we felt the property needed upgrading. However we still enjoyed a lovely break in Arran. the walk to Kings cave is beautiful, Kildonan beach is lovely, Glen Sannox and Glen rosa. Brodick castle is great with something for every one and wee enjoyed two lovely meals at Cruze in the Auchrannie Spa resort.
    Mrs Tait - April 2013
    We were a mixed family group of older teens and adults. This property had the space and the charm to win us all over. We loved the open fire, which gave everyone and everything a warm glow. We loved the character which shone through every room in the house. To reiterate what other people have said, this house is fully equipped, whether it was a piece of kitchen equipment or a game to play, it was provided. However, I think the real draw of this house is the wildlife that passes by, red squirrel, pheasant, rabbit I could go on, the seals that played and posed at the bottom of the garden (almost) and the fabulous views that are framed by the windows in the lounge and kitchen. We would love to return in the summer and see how this compares to Christmas at Seabank.
    Mrs Rawson - December 2012
    A lendid house in a perfect location - everything we could have wished for and more besides. Warm & comfortable with wonderful views, early morning sunrises and an abundance of wildlife on the shore. Many great eating places all over the island and splendid walks too. We have already booked a return visit to Seabank in 2013!
    Mr Crowe - September 2012
    The gentle lapping of waves, a mountain shrouded in cloud, a red squirrel stealing BBQ leftovers, a seal through the bedroom window, the surge of a waterfall, one rainy day in two weeks. Peace and relaxation even with four kids. Enough said.
    Mr Grococks - August 2012
    fabulous home, great for large family groups. Description for facilities could be improved - there is a oven with hob as well as a rayburn, which we didnt know until we arrived! Very well stocked kitchen, and huge fridge! The only let down was the downstairs shower room - which was cold and didnt dry out very well after use- as it was being used by the less mobile of the group it caused a few problems. Beds were all very comfortable, and bathrooms despite being a bit tired were clean and warm. We would definately return!!
    Miss Davies - July 2012
    Seabank is just the best holiday house we have ever stayed in. It has so much character, it is large and comfortable and is so well equipped. You wont need to take any spare equipment with you ...it has just everything you will need. There is plenty of space for everyone. We stayed there with 3 generations for a family party and had loads of friends coming and going during the week and it suited everyone. The space outside is wonderful for children and they loved watching the seals, the herron, the swans and the red squirrels every day. The view over Holy Isle is just beautiful. We will be back soon.
    Mrs Brown - June 2012
    The house is actually nicer than the photos suggest; it is spacious, simply furnished and decorated in calm tones. The kitchen is very well equipped, such as with a decent size pasta saucepan, and once you get the hang of it the Raeburn makes an interesting addition to the conventional gas cooker. The views are stunning with abundant wildlife almost literally on your doorstep. It's worth taking a small boat trip across to Holy Isle directly opposite the house. The local pubs not brilliant but stock up with wine and enjoy a glass on the front lawn, weather-permitting. Fairly decent bus service, but also interesting coastal walk up round to Brodick. Plan to return at some point.
    Mr Polydorou - June 2012
    The house has every thing we wanted and needed. It's in a truly lovelt location and is convenient for all the major requirements except for a butcher. Our party of 9 always have a great time, expanded this year because of our own 'Arran Olympics'. All the members of our party have been coming to Arran for between 8 and 50 years and love our regular trips to the island. Seabank, as it currently is, is the best house we have had.
    Mr Platel - June 2012
    The house was excellent for our group. the view was spectacular and the facilities plentiful.
    Ms Gorrie - May 2012
    This was our 4th visit to Seabank, and we plan to return next year. It's fantastic to watch the otters, seals, red squirrels,swans etc from the window. We appreciate the improvements that have been carried out. It is a very "happy" house.
    Mr Mciver - April 2012
    this is a lovely large house in a quiet location. The house has a lovely "feel" and was well stocked for cooking and entertainment. However, in bad weather we found it cold and the living room was a bit small for such a big house. Fab views of the seals on the beach opposite and enclosed garden great for kids. Would stay again.
    Mrs Corbett - March 2012
    Beautifully positioned, well appointed and comfortable property. The only quibble was that the Raeburn was off and there were not enough instructions to put oon some of the heaters. Otherwise perfect. We had two dogs and it would have been good to have a secure fence round the garden.
    Owners Response: "Thank you for your review. It is unfortunate that your visit coincided with a problem with the Raeburn, this was fixed during your stay. Regarding a fence for containing dogs, the length and type of boundary (hedges) makes this impractical unfortunately."
    Mrs Palmer - September 2011
    lovely character house with lots of space .location is great with stunning view of holy island. We were fortunate that the weather was brilliant and were able to enjoy sitting out in the garden where we saw red squirels,grouse with baby grouse,rabbits ,swans and seals basking on the rocks. the house is larger than it looks on the website ,the kitchen / diner is great for big groups and everyone can fit round table in one sitting, the bedrooms are all good sizes and having 3 toilets meant no one having to wait . the size of the house meant that you don't feel on top of each other with plenty of room for all. the website could prehaps give more info on what is at the house so we wouldn't have taken as much stuff for example the garden chairs and table, hairdryer ,soap in each bathroom. the info folder in house is very good. its a lovely house and with the raeburn in the kitchen it reminded me of my nana's . it feels like home not just a house and the old furniture adds to the character.
    Owners Response: "From cottages and Castles: Thank you for your feedback - from this we have checked with the owner what is provided at the house and updated the site accordingly."
    Mrs Maceachen - July 2011
    Seabank was clean, had lovely views and was wonderfully cosy ready for our arrival which in winter is always a concern. The kitchen is well equipped and we enjoyed some lovely meals from the rayburn. A lovely old property that has not been used and abused.
    Mrs Scorer - December 2010
    Lovely big kitchen diner with cosy Aga for drying wet swimming gear. We had a great family holiday here last summer and would be happy to return. The views are stunning and has a nice big garden for dogs and kids to play in.
    Mrs Aitken - July 2010
    A terrific venue for our long weekend on Arran. The propoerty was in a fantastic location and a great base for our stay in Arran. It exceded our expectations and I cannot recomments in enough for perspective guests. Families and large groups would benefit best from the set out of the cottage.
    Mr Anderson - June 2010
