AN ARRAN bed and breakfast has been celebrating recently after they were named ‘best value place of the week’ on Channel 4’s show ‘Four in a Bed’.

Former air stewardess, and owner, Meg along with friend Yvonne welcomed fellow B&B owners from Northumberland, Blackpool and Argyll and Bute to The Lamlash Bay Hotel on the island.

Speaking on the show, Meg was confident in her abilities, given all she had learned from her time in the skies.

She said: “It did really give me a taste for hospitality, nice places and nice surroundings.

“There’s no excuse for poor hospitality, if you choose to do this, I think it’s important to always be on the ball.”

Meg was also hopeful that the Isle of Arran itself would impress her guests, many of whom had never visited before.

She said: “I think we’ve got not only one of the best views in Arran, but one of the best views in the world.”

The show runs over five episodes, with four B&B owners taking it in turns to visit each other’s establishments in the first four shows, and paying what they believe their stay to be worth compared to the actual prices.

The winner is decided in a final episode, where it is revealed how much has been paid for each stay, in comparison to what is actually charged.

While on the island, the fellow owners who visited were treated to a walk along Brodick beach, and a gin tasting session with Arran Botanicals - which of course went down well.

The drinks were flowing once more, in the evening, when they returned to the beach for a fireside dram.

Meg and Yvonne’s turn to host went down a treat, with two guests even remarking “we just need one of those T-shirts that says that we love Arran”.

They received glowing feedback with only very minor details being picked out for constructive criticism.

All of the hosts got on well with one stating they had made “friends for life but payment day will tell”.

Despite some fiery feedback, which included Meg saying: “When I opened the toilet there was a big furry jobby in there,” when recalling her stay in Blackpool, the final payments didn’t throw up too many surprises.

Meg and Yvonne in fact overpaid for one of their opponents, paying bang on despite previous comments to the other, while the team from Argyll and Bute unfortunately had to withdraw.

Both remaining couples paid the Lamlash team full price - crowning them the winners of the week.

In light of the win, the owners remarked: “Thank you so much for all the messages! It does help that we live on a beautiful island and have fantastic staff . Team work makes the dream work that’s for sure.”
