This was my first stay at the Gailes and it was for a single night. I was due to be in the area for 4 nights but had to stay in 2 other Hotels for various reasons. I decidedly would have preferred to spend all my time at the Gailes. The room was large, comfortable, well appointed and very clean.... More

Very large room with huge comfortable bed and bathroom with bath and shower over. Lovely toiletries. The shower head was fixed and quite high up and there was no complimentary shower cap, but that was the only (very trivial) negative. Had dinner in the hotel both nights. The food was excellent with a varied menu with something for everyone and... More

We all had our own waiter/waitress and the Maître d coordinated the whole event with distinction. The facilities were very good and... More

We stayed as a family of 3 on our way to Arran, finding the hotel at the last minute due to a mix up with the hotel we were meant to be staying at. On check-in, the lady on reception was very friendly, which was to be a common theme in the hotel. The room was functional without being exceptional,... More
