I tried to book dinner here for a special family celebration - they only serve food in the evenings at the weekend. This is a hotel - and it is peak season! There was a half hearted suggestion that we could eat at the pub next door ( also owned by the hotel) - we might have tried it had... More

13 of us have just enjoyed a stay in the cottages for a hen party! The cottages are absolutely stunning a true home from home! Everything needed is provided! We all had treatments in the serenity spa located within the Ugadale hotel, the girls were amazing and made us all feel so relaxed and welcome nothing was too much hassle,... More

I organised 17 golfers to come here on our 29th Annual tour and it was excellent. First class, comfortable hotel with superior rooms, good food and most importantly friendly and helpful staff. The golf courses at Macrihanish Old and Macrihanish Dunes are very interesting and scenic genuine links although the latter a little let down by poor greens. The local... More

Stayed for a couple of days this week. There is a lot to commend the hotel. Very good staff in all departments, nice room, spectacular location and views. No complaints. However, it is very expensive @ c£200/night and for that you expect the highest service and it doesn't quite get there. In particular breakfast is a big let down. For... More

My wife and I stayed at the Ugadale hotel for 4 nights from the 2nd June 2014. The hotel (once someone had appeared to check us in) was superb. The room had a bay window and overlooked the coast and the first hole of the golf course. It is dressed in the old Scots style and everything seemed to be... More

The beds were very comfy and the bathrooms spacious , luxury and the showers just hit the spot. Between the cottages and the hotel was a wee pub... More

This is the first review I have given on Trip Advisor as having working for years in the hospitality industry and travelled the world on business I expect high standards and find the idea of writing reviews a bit of a chore - just another half an hour in front of a computer.

With all superior rooms enjoying a view of the sea and the famous Machrahanish golf Club this is a very special place. We enjoyed three wonderful nights at the hotel aided no doubt by the fact that the sun shone for the duration of our stay. Our room (Room 2) was splendind, large, comfy bed and nice large bathroom with... More
