Welcome to Kilmichael Country House Hotel
Country House Hotel and Deluxe Cottages
Kilmichael House set in beautiful gardens, and is listed as a building of historic and architectural significance.
For all its proud history and its description in the title deeds as a fine Scottish Mansion House, it is actually quite small and has a charming intimacy about it which complements its grand associations.
Kilmichael Country House Hotel Accommodation
All the rooms are elegantly and individually decorated to retain the look and feel of a particularly attractive country house, while still offering the standards of comfort and service associated with the best hotels.
The Forest Room
The Rose Bedroom
The Garden Suite
The Fullarton Suite
We also have more rooms in The Stable Court a beautifully restored stone-built stable and coach house in the garden.
All the rooms at Kilmichael are furnished and equipped to the highest standards. All have both bath and shower en suite.
Each has a telephone, television, cd player, clock radio, tea tray and hairdryer, as well as an iron, shoe-cleaning kit, books of local interest, an Ordnance Survey map of the island and a folder of useful local information. All bedrooms except the Fullarton Suite are on the ground floor.
All beds except twins and the single are "King size" (American "Queen size"). Each room is decorated differently and has fresh flowers, fruit and a wee dram of whisky to welcome you on arrival, as well as a range of toiletries from Crabtree & Evelyn and Arran Aromatics.
A ferry-inclusive tariff is also available.
Our dishes are prepared using the finest and freshest of local ingredients wherever possible, including fresh eggs from our own chickens and ducks, home grown herbs, fruit, vegetables and salad leaves from the potager, together with berries and mushrooms gathered in season on the estate.
At dinner all our bread, ice creams and sorbets are home made, as are the jams and marmalade at breakfast and, whenever possible, honey from our own bees.
We do, however, only serve adult food and are understandably reluctant to modify our entire menu to suit those who were startled by a piece of broccoli as a child!
The dinner menu is available at breakfast every morning. We serve a 'table d'hôte' menu only and so request guests to inform us in advance of any special dietary needs/strong dislikes so that we may be able to accommodate accommodate them in planning for the day.
Celebrations and Gifts
Choose from the luxury of The Byre Suite, with its private sitting room and jacuzzi bath big enough for two, or the cosiness of The Forest Room, with a magnificent four-poster bed and a corner jacuzzi bath.
Our local chocolate maker, James of Arran, produces a superb selection of hand-made chocolates in a wide variety of gift boxes
Situated at the heart of grounds granted to the forebears of its builders by King Robert the Bruce in 1307, it occupies a spot known to have been inhabited long before that, indeed the name Kilmichael indicates the site of one of the earliest Christian missionary cells, dedicated to St. Michael.
By the middle of the 16th century there were just two principal landowners on the island, the Dukes of Hamilton at the castle and the Fullartons of Kilmichael. No doubt to reflect the family's prominence, the estate was improved in Victoria's time by the addition of a lodge with gates and, inside the house, a stained glass window depicting the Fullarton coat of arms.
For all its proud history and its description in the title deeds as
a fine Scottish Mansion House, it is actually quite small and has a charming
intimacy about it which complements these grand associations.
