Stayed here in October 2014. The first impression on arrival was that I had arrived at a posh country house with old fashioned gravel drive - on entering the hotel, the impression was of a old fashioned Inn. Not particularly off putting but the reception area really was in the centre of the corridor between the restaurant, bar and kitchen... More

The most customer centric hotel I have ever had the pleasure of staying at. Obviously I could pick up on some small negatives however this is totally outweighed by the quality of the staff and their attitude in making sure the customer's stay is perfect. Any request however odd is viewed with absolute delight in being able to accommodate. We... More

We stayed here on the personal recommendation of friends in Ayr. Great friendly welcome and cases carried up to the room for us as we checked in. Full of old world charm and a warm friendly hotel. Nice room, lots of light and a nice comfortable bed. There are some peeling bits of paper in the bathroom , by the... More

Recently visited for dinner. The atmosphere was very nice and although very busy the seating was arranged so that none was feeling cramped. The menu was vast and have a good choice of both moderate and upper end prices. The service was very good. Being attentive but not annoying. The food was presented to a high standard and was reasonably... More

We were bowled over by the customer service. Everyone was so friendly and helpful without getting under your feet. The room was perfect- clean, conservatively decorated with plenty of storage if staying for a few nights. The ensure was clean, mould free and had an in bath shower. We did not eat dinner at Chestnuts but it is obviously very... More

A good place to stay when you want to be comfortable and relax after a day on the river. Room small and functional, food wholesome, simple and well prepared, very friendly and helpful staff and proprietor. Nothing too much trouble. Good quality wines and whisky. Can be busy when non residents come for the early restaurant price reduction.

I stayed over at The Chestnuts Hotel two weeks ago, while on a business trip to Dumfries & Galloway and Ayrshire. On arrival at the hotel, I received a friendly welcome and was offered a very nice bedroom facing the front elevation. The room was well presented and had all the facilities I require, ie tea/coffee making facilities, free wi-fi,... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here in November of 2013 for one night on our trip around Scotland. It was exactly what we'd hoped - a small, friendly and inviting inn with a great pub and cozy rooms! It was a little cold and rainy when we first arrived, and the reception area of the hotel was so welcoming and... More
