I stayed here for one night en route to Troon. It was perfect after a long trip.The room was huge, the bed was huge and super comfortable! The staff were really helpful and friendly. The breakfast was great too. Unfortunate it was a real flying visit and I didn't get a chance to have a proper look around and check... More

What an absolutely superb time. Couldn't fault anything of significance about the hotel or the wedding reception. Food was brilliant, enjoyed previous nights and wedding food and also the breakfasts although never managed to get a coquasant. The staff were friendly, clean rooms. I would recommend the hotel for a wedding venue, which was why we were there but as... More

Attended niece's wedding on 10 July and stayed the night before also. First impression on arriving at hotel looked like a travel lodge. Sorry, but wouldn't rate it as a 4 star hotel. Staff throughout the hotel were very friendly and very helpful. Service at Thursday afternoon lunch was very slow. Had to re-ask for menu and for waitress to... More

On arrival was a lovely sunny day and the hotel setting was picturesque. Checked in and room was large with a massive bed which could easily occupy 3 people. Plenty of space to move around and for luggage. The reason I gave 4 stars which is not entirely the hotels fault but something I am sure they could manage is... More

We booked this weekend trip after staying at their sister hotel "The Old Loans". We were booked in for dinner bed and breakfast for the 2 nights. Upon arrival the hotel looked nothing more than a travel inn. Four a four star hotel you expect more at a first glance. We had organised to be booked into a deluxe room... More

The Hailes hotel is in a nice peaceful location. Not for those wanting to be in the centre of town though. Staff were very friendly. Room was not overly spacious but so comfortable. Only 2 floors to this hotel which was good for us. Lots to choose from the breakfast menu and obviously cooked to order. The food in the... More
