Five star food at three star prices. Chef Tim amazing? The very best fish and chips EVER! Noted a number of guests staying at posh Trump Turnberry who were in the... More

Stayed here for two nights on a long weekend . Found ALL facilities to be of an extremely high standard. From booking in to leaving all aspects of our stay were excellent. Would definitely recommend eating in the restaurant, we took advantage of a dinner, bed and breakfast deal and were more than happy with the food on offer both... More

Went for 2 nights with my husband for a break. Having not been before we weren't really sure what to expect. We had a fantastic time! Our room was huge, absolutely spotless and had everything you would need. This place really has it cracked. The staff are brilliant and can't do enough for you, first class customer service. We ate... More

We booked this hotel after looking at Trip Advisor Feedback and we were not disappointed. Our room with a sea view was massive, very comfortable and had tasteful decor throughout. The view out to the sea was stunning! We had evening meals included in our stay....the food was top class! Both myself and my wife has Scallops served on Black... More

This place doesn't look all that gripping from the outside but the rooms are good and clean. Plus the restaurant - not the best looking from the outside either - was very, very good. 200 character limit imposed by trpadvisor is very annoying and wastes my time.

Firstly let me make quite clear I have not stayed at this hotel, but many of my close friends and family have and it has always come up trumps and I sometimes get the feeling that they now come to visit just for the hotel experience. A family member recently moved a proposed visiting date just because a room was... More

We booked rooms here enroute to the ferry and were very pleasantly surprised when we arrived to see how large and (more importantly) clean our rooms were. The Woodland Bay is just over the road from the beach where we walked the dogs and the location is perfect for this. There was a function on the night we were there... More

I stayed here for a hen party and had a fantastic time. The staff were attentive and helpful. The rooms were spacious and clean, however a little too warm in the morning. The food was tasty (lunch, dinner and breakfast). Excellent situation for large parties to take over the hotel.

It's a shame that the economic climate has had a profound effect on what was once a diamond in the sand ! I have faith they will bounce back...! I do hope so :( ....... I shall return again, as i did like the food, but the prices are a bit too high for what was on offer. Although i... More

Good location right next to the ocean. I normally stay in Premier Inns when on business but the room and shower here were a definite step up. Very nice and very comfortable. The WIFI, I have to say, was intermittent so had to rely on my 3G connection. The food in the evening was brilliant - great service, really nicely... More
