My partner visited fir lunch. Reasonable priced with a main £6.95, I had Thai fish cakes followed by the lasagna.

I won't revisit for lunch. Just ok, did not... More

A small family-run hotel, it is a little gem. Having stopped in the hotel every 6 months for probably 10 years, shows how satisfied I am with it. Very friendly staff who remember you by name, you can book specific rooms to suit. Food in the restaurant is of high quality and the views over to Arran are spectacular at... More

We had dinner in the lounge and had a great view of the sunset. Nice walk along the Lang Scots Mile. Very nice hotel. We were back up a couple of... More

The Horizon is a very modern, friendly hotel on the seafront. It is probably the most dog friendly hotel in the area. Whether dropping in for a coffee or a meal you find the same friendly attention. The coffee is good, as is the food and it is obviously very popular for weddings and similar celebrations.

We had our wedding in Ayr and were staying at the Horizon as we had previously stayed before. As a special request we had asked to get the same room. Not only did we get the same room but the service given was amazing. There was no request that the girls couldnt handle. It was all handled with a proffessional... More

Stayed here for 3 nights whilst visiting family in Ayrshire. This hotel is in a great location and when you are sat having breakfast the view of the sea front is beautiful. The reception area and bar etc had been modernised and is lovely. The rooms are a little old fashioned but perfectly adequate and good enough for the price... More
