5/5 on TripAdvisor

‘First class. My wife and I stayed for 2 nights we were made very welcome from the minute we arrived. The welcome hamper was a fantastic showcase of the finest island produce. Everything about the pods was fantastic from the quiet location albeit handy for Brodick and the views over the Ayrshire coast are stunning. A big thanks to Barbara and Andy for a fantastic getaway.’

Happy 5pm customers

Gōst has already received plenty of praise from 5pm customers, here’s some recent feedback:

'This was a quick visit prior to visiting the GFT and it was perfect! Lovely serving staff who were attentive without being intrusive. The food was of a much higher standard than I had anticipated for a fixed-price menu – kudos to the kitchen. Would definitely go back at a later time of night and enjoy all this place has to offer. Thank you!'

‘Amazing spa. I was at the spa today with my daughter, very enjoyable experience. The whole spa area was spotlessly clean and the staff were lovely and welcoming. The relaxation room was lovely with soothing music and fresh fruit. I had a back massage from Jordana and have to admit it’s one of the best I have ever had, I would definitely ask for her if I return!’
