Scotland’s best staycation: Resort on beautiful island wins top title

An Ayrshire resort has taken the title of Scotland’s best staycation venue.

Auchrannie Resort on the island of Arran bagged the top title at the Prestige Hotel Awards 2022.

Bosses at the hotel put the recognition down to hard working staff.

Auchrannie saw off competition from Barend Holiday Lodges to take the accolade home.

And guests who have supported the island resort were also thanked in an emotional Facebook post.

Auchrannie Resort posted on their social media page: “We’re celebrating after being named ‘Scotland’s best staycation” at the Prestige Hotel Awards 2022.

“A huge recognition for the team who work so hard to make every Auchrannie experience a memorable one.

“And, a massive thank you to all our guests who have supported us, especially through the ever-changing events of the last two years.”

Auchrannie has grown from a 16 bedroom guest house in 1988 to a resort now comprising two 4 star hotels with 85 rooms, thirty five-star self-catering lodges, 14 luxury retreats, three restaurants, a destination spa, shop and two leisure clubs with pools, children’s playbarn and outdoor adventure centre.
