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

We chose this hotel because of its location and convenience to Western Gailes Golf club. By the way this is one of the best golf courses I have ever played! Make sure you play if you love golf. It is very tough so you have to be pretty good to enjoy to. The hotel was very nice. Our room for... More

excellent location and extremely well organized. Of course the Bride and Groom were outstanding. The meal was superb and the rooms up to a very high standard. The staff were effecient and very friendly but not intrusive. Only two downsides forgot my golf clubs and unfortunately nearby is a landfill site and the wind was blowing in the wrong direction...

The bathroom was equally large & clean with soap, moisturiser & shower gel provided. Only downside was the room was very hot & with no fan so made it slightly... More

Excellent value for money Hotel, amazing staff and great location. During the night on Saturday I had to call an ambulance and go to the hospital, the staff were excellent, very attentive and genuinely concerned for me, in addition they arranged a late checkout for my husband and I the following day. Thank you to all.
