Attended a friends wedding and from start to finish it was excellent. All the staff were happy friendly and eager to help. The Lagavalin suite was ideal and the standard of food was great. Can't thank the staff enough for making it such an amazing day.

Stayed for one night in this hotel and rooms were spacious and clean. Every member of staff we had dealings with were extremely pleasant and helpful. We also ate in the restaurant where there was awide variety of dishes on offer and again the service was good. Only negative is that bottles of wine are overly expensive. Pretty much everything...

The Gailes Hotel is situated next to championship golf courses, and therefore very popular with groups of golfers. Thank you for your fantastic comments I will pass these to our team at the Gailes, we look forward to welcoming you back in the future. More

The facilities were really cramped. The catering / meals were dismal. Meals were sent back. The food was dry and obviously pre cooked and reheated -looked like packet, processed meals. Same veg served for three days and garnish was totally inappropriate - green leafy herbs on top of a steak pie!!! I managed to salvage a piece of plastic out... More

Thank you for your feedback, the leisure club – Gailes Golf and Leisure was taken over by SimpsInns eight weeks ago; we are currently in the process of extensive refurbishment of the building together with the golf driving range. I am surprised that you had problems sleeping in the hotel, as we do not normally receive any feedback about noise... More

First and foremost with this hotel are the staff. Very friendly and helpful. Our room was nice but plugs do not accomodate charges neither laptop or tablet fit. Problem is the sockets are too close to the dressing table so not enough height to fit. Menu very restricted specially for us Itison folk! So we ordered steak with a surcharge.... More

Expected a restriction on the menu but were given... More
