This is our "local" where we always receive a warm welcome from the friendly efficient staff. Sitting in the bar beside the log fire adds to the pleasure. Good food is served promptly and is well cooked and delicious. Drink prices are reasonable and they stock a good selection of single malts. This hotel is a wee gem.

My wife and I had a wedding to attend in Newcastle and we chose to begin it here in mid-March on the recommendation of a friend I hadn't seen in 15 years. Peter was spot on. We spent three wonderful nights here in Ayr. The hotel staff was more than helpful in every conceivable way. Our room was spacious, clean... More

Being local this is a venue we visit often and it has never disappointed us in 7 years. All the staff are well trained and are more than competent. Owners friendly and welcoming every time. Early supper meals offer great prices but the proton size doesn't suffer unlike other restaurants early evening deals. Overall the food and service are great.... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in March. Both room and restaurant were good and, I thought, reasonably priced. We found the staff friendly and efficient. For example, they remembered that we had ordered a gluten free meal in the restaurant in the evening and then produced a gluten free roll for breakfast the next morning without being asked. Highly...

I have visited this establishment twice recently. On the first occasion it was for an early bird dinner within the bar casual dining area which was excellent. My partner had haggis which she loved and I had macaroni cheese which was really cheesy and old fashioned like my mum used to make. The bar is welcoming and comfortable and there... More

A warm and welcoming hotel. The bedroom ( no 1 ) was warm and comfortable, the en suite clean, with soft towels, the staff warm, courteous and helpful. The full Scottish breakfast was perfect, and on one of the wettest and most windy days of the year, a delight before going out to face the elements. I have one exceedingly... More

Every year our office Christmas meal has been here. And always good quality food across the board. There's a good selection for a set price menu and the food is served promptly and efficiently. Unlike many 'trendier' establishments in Ayr/Prestwick/Troon diners don't feel rushed to make way for the next lot of diners. The bar is cosy with a lovely... More
