Myself and my boyfriend stayed in this hotel last night 07/07/2012. We were originally booked into another local hotel which was closed on our arrival! Linda agreed with our booking agent that we could stay at her hotel and she would be reimbursed by our agent.
The hotel is situated close to the town and all amenities, also close to the shore all within walking distance.
On arrival we were greeted at the door by a very friendly lady, she was very attentive and informed us she had booked us into her last room. The hotel was lovely and the communal area was comfortable and stylish! There is a bar area where guests can purchase drinks (which we did later in the evening)
Our room was pleasant we noted that all soft furnishings were of good quality! Thick curtains at the window which kept the room warm and also blocked out all light for a very restful night’s sleep. The room was clean and they provided tea, coffee, (with clean unstained mugs) Shower gel and shampoo. The bathroom was clean and we were provided with lovely soft clean white towels.
We sat in the bar/ lounge area which provided very comfortable and relaxing surroundings and shared a bottle of red wine which we had purchased from the bar. Linda the proprietor of the hotel spent time chatting to us and was happy to answer all our questions. Very friendly lady.
Breakfast was between 8am and 9am where we were offered a good choice of cereals, juice and fruit, and also a cooked breakfast. Other staff members employed here were equally helpful and attentive.
Through work my boyfriend has lived out of a suitcase in hotels throughout the UK for a number of years. On some trips he has stayed in rooms that cost well into the £100's per night. On departure he told me that this is by far the most welcoming, friendly and comfortable hotel he has ever stayed in, and believe me he is a hard man to please!!!!! He is very critical of everywhere he stays and on this occasion the only downside was that we could not stay another night.
What I find most sad and quite irritating is that if I had read the reviews on here I would not have booked this hotel and that would have been our loss!! I honestly wish we had booked this hotel in the first instance! I think it speaks volumes that the hotel was busy and we were given the last room available. We will definitely return and next time it will be our first option for booking!
Thanks to Linda and her staff for a very warm welcome and positive experience.
Make this your first choice when visiting Ayr! If she is fully booked I wouldnt be surprised and you...
