We went there for a short break with our dog. Lovely place, excellent location, really friendly and helpful staff. Our dog was constantly spoiled by them. Breakfast and dinner were good value too. We would definitely return.

Stayed for one night in the horizon hotel. We were allocated an attic room which was nice and spacious but very very hot. Maybe some air con or a fan should be put in that room. Only paid £100 for the night which included a very yummy and nicely presented breakfast. Location was excellent- we had a lovely sea view... More

A lovely, welcoming family run hotel which lends itself to many types of traveller. I stayed here for a few nights with my three daughters aged (6, 9 and 14years) we enjoyed the proximity to the beach, which we could spend more time on after a hearty Scottish breakfast, which was very tasty. The room was a lovely, clean attic... More

The Horizon occupies a unique position on the seafront at Ayr with views over to Arran. Occupying some older buildings, it has been fully modernised with a substantial newer extension. There is a lovely lounge area and the bar/ restaurant has sea views. Rooms were fine though ours was quite small. Breakfasts were good though for our early starts only... More

We attended a party in the function suite of the hotel on Saturday night and the room, food and service were all fine. What let us down was the attic room we stayed in (there were no other double rooms available). I'm only 5ft 4 inches tall and even I had problems not banging my head off the sloping roof.... More

We consider ourselves very lucky to have found the Horizon Hotel on a recent visit to the area. Arrived in the evening, looking for a place to stay. Every moment, from the first step inside to leaving the next morning, was enjoyable. The view of the water at sunset is breathtaking. Room was clean, beautiful and comfortable. Staff was wonderful,... More
