I had the good fortune to be booked into the Western House by my company for a short 0230 - 1430 stay on a Saturday night and was allocated a "main house" room. Even at 0230 checking in I received a warm welcome and the room itself was very well appointed. A wee glitch with the fire alarm woke me... More

We stayed here half board, food was fantastic, complements to the chef on the 28th Feb. We stayed in the courtyard rooms, not great that you have to go out the hotel to get to your room as they are not connected to the hotel, and also from the outside you do not really know what to expect, however the...

We have stayed on a few occasions and I am still not disappointed with the hotel and staff. The rooms as always lovely comfortable and clean everything thought out for our comfort right down to the hot water bottle in the wardrobe. The staff are always exceptionally nice and pleasant. The young lad who was tidying outside I think his... More

A lovely hotel. I stayed in the main 'house' part of the hotel. My room was huge and I particularly liked the small touches such as shortbread and hot chocolate sachets left by the bed for a late night treat. When I stayed there was a wedding on the Sunday evening and I could hear the music and noise from... More

First time staying at this hotel, it really is a stunning place, but we were a little disappointed with our meal, we had booked the valentines DBB offer, after checking out your menu online we were really looking forward to our meal, unfortunately the menu was a bit of a let down, the soup really wasn't very nice at all...

Lovely location, excellent food and very helpful staff, made this an excellent stop over in Ayr. The jovial atmosphere following race day was a joy to behold. I was here on business, but couldn't avoid the post race banter, and why would you avoid it, it was all part of the charm of this lovely hotel.

Stayed at the Western House Hotel on a business trip. It is adjacent to Ayr racecourse and I was told shares the same ownership which explains the horse sculptures in the Garden and all the pictures around the Hotel. The staff were almost without exception very friendly, the rooms large and spotlessly clean. The Breakfast was really good with a... More
