The hotel is situated at the end of a rough road at the end of the North Rhinos Peninsula. The views are breathtaking, from the Ayrshire coast round via Ailsa Craig and Arran all the way to Northern Ireland. Birdlife is abundant plus hares, ermine, dolphins and porpoise. The hotel, a converted lighthouse is unique. The accommodation is quirky and... More

As you approach the Lighthouse Hotel the beauty and ruggedness of the coastline make a marked impression. But it's when you arrive you begin to realise that you've 'landed' in a truly magical and unique setting. With a hugely warm welcome and snug solidity from the fierce winds provided by the robust building, the hotel offers a real haven from... More

We have eaten at Corsewall for a number of years now and had our wedding here in 2004. The food has always maintained a very high standard with interesting dishes in a beautiful situation. Other comments regarding renovation are true but the setting and quality does much to compensate. The staff always make you welcome and will do anything they... More

We stayed here in January, in the Lighthouse suite, which is a little cottage 50m from the main hotel. It has two, small bedrooms, a bathroom, a living kitchen/diner and a wonderful conservatory. The views of the Lighthouse, the cliffs and the sea are fabulous. It was warm and cozy even though one evening there was a blizzard outside. You... More

My husband and I decided to add an extra day onto our Winter break, so returned to Corsewall. Location of this place is still spectacular and we were treated to the most awesome sunset, talk of the dining room. The hotel could do with some renovation to uplift the decorations and improve the ensuite facilities but other than looking tired... More

I booked this for my Dad's birthday and was really looking forward to this based on the previous reviews. On arrival we had to wait for 15 mins to anybody to appear, in fairness they were setting up the champagne I had ordered in the suite. However on arrival at the suite, it was freezing, we sat with our coats... More

We stayed here on a wild January weekend and it is a truly wonderful place. It's remote and really unique. The staff are fantastic, friendly and helpful. We stayed in the Loch Ryan suite which was spacious and had decent views. The food was amazing with decent choices. The cheesecake was the best I've ever tasted. We had a great... More

We stayed here on 20 December last year and took the Facebook offer that was on at that time. We were booked into the Dunskirkloch Room (ensuite with view over the meadows) but I asked if we could have a room with a sea view. We were given the Ailsa Room and were advised the bathroom was private but didn't... More

Myself hubby and a couple of friends went here for an overnight stay. We had the Ballantrae Suite booked. The approach to the hotel was on a dirt track road with quite a few pot holes. So be careful when driving. It does look like they are putting in a road though. What a wonderful experience arriving at the hotel.... More
