Very lovely family run hotel. Well kept beer (Timothy Taylor) and supper of Thai fish cakes absolutely delicious. Bedroom was large, warm comfortable and well equipped. The only disappointment was the breakfast: the sausage was of poor quality and the scrambled egg watery and disappointing - it should be creamy and luxurious. But, sort the breakfast and it is a...

Visited with family for Hogmanay. Lovely touch with piper at the door on arrival. From the starters to the mouthwatering fillet steaks surf and turf, chicken stuffed with chestnut mousse and monkfish, all were absolutely delicious. Fantastic evening and would definitely book again.

Welcomed by Grant and staff on arrival, warm and comfortable dining room , tastefully decorated for Christmas. Within minutes of settling down at our table we were greeted by our waiting staff, drinks order taken and menus delivered. The... More

Food is generally very good its not a fine dining experience, but highly recommended all... More

Came here for a pre-Christmas weekend away with an old friend, and we were extremely impressed. The ensuite rooms are small, though big enough for my needs. Warm and clean. The food in both the bar (first night) and restaurant (second night) was very good indeed and the service was friendly and highly attentive. We had booked B & B... More

I rarely write reviews on here but after visiting the hotel tonight it was the first thing I wanted to do when I got home. I have visited the restaurant several times over the past few years and the food is always delicious and fresh. Always a warm welcome with friendly, helpful staff. We ventured out tonight with our 3... More

Have visited the restaurant of this hotel recently and was very impressed with the quality of food on offer. Good variety in the menu and the choices we made were excellent. Beautifully presented and well cooked. The staff were very pleasant and helpful and we will visit again without a second thought.

Arrived into Ayr with no accommodation booked prior when I chanced upon ThecChestnuts Hotel - happily they could accommodate us for one night in their executive double room. Beautiful room with couch, huge bathroom, flat screen TV and comfy bed. We had dinner in the bar in front of a giant fireplace and breakfast in the morning - both meals... More
