Stayed for one night - that was enough. Room pretty basic, nothing really matched and wasn't that sure about the cleanliness. Staff were very pleasant, though would have been nice to hear the early morning chatter before 7am. Breakfast was good but to finish at 9am on a weekend morning please reconsider. Downstairs room extremely cold, please look at additional... More

If you want cheap and cheerful, then stay here! I had a double room to myself. Overlooking the harbour. Wash hand basin in the room, toilet and shower in the corridor. The access was via a coded door, no landlord. Breakfast was downstairs in a huge room, microwave, fridge, with milk and butter. Cereal, toaster, bread, jam/marmalade. DIY. Tea/coffee kettle... More

I stayed in an upstairs room. There was thick dust, and I found an old sock poking out from beneath the bed. The bed was lumpy and I did'nt get much sleep. The shower was disgusting! Covered in orange mould - so I went out, bought bleach - and scrubbed it clean. Also had a broken lock on my door... More

Andy greeted us personally and welcomed us is as if we were old friends. Carmen made sure we were looked after and makes a great breakfast. The location is perfect for trains and shopping, there's little to no noise and the place was clean and tidy. Good rates, great service, will stop here again next time I'm in the area

I booked through bookassist and received a confirmation email. The day before we were due to arrive I received a call to say there was no room at the inn. They offered me a room at another hotel that they owned, which didn't have the double bed or breakfast that I booked for. And they've refused to refund my deposit... More

Stayed at hotel Aug 8-9, 2011, on solo golf trip. Room was simple, clean and basic, not fancy. Breakfast was good, full Scottish. Walkable from Irvine train station. Short cab ride to local golf. Owner, Andrew, is very friendly and happy to help you get to/from courses. Be sure to have a meal at the Ship Inn, walkable from the... More

The other reviews basically pick up on everything that is wrong with this place eg shabby pillows mattresses, covers and a very odd smell off... More
