“Carrick Lodge Hotel,restuarant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

Went there on Easter Sunday with my husband and sister-in law,(who lives in Ayr). We have been before and the menu was just as delicious as then. The staff are very friendly (and no loitering.) the food should suit everybody(unless they are very fussy). Children are catered for too. We will probably be back again in future.

Stayed March 2013, traveled with family

We stayed for one night while visiting family. Nice room with tea/coffee making facilities. Iron and ironing board in cupboard in room.
Staff welcoming and helpful, didn't eat in restaurant we only had breakfast which was usual full english and other choices, no vegetarian cooked choices unless you eat eggs but there was porridge, cereal etc . Very pleasant lady takes your order.

Very nice bathroom with shower but it was freezing, only small towel rail for heating and single glazing which was draughty. Bedroom was warm in comparison.

Top quality for a dinner with the wife. Obviously a very telented chef. he bill didn't break the bank either. The staff were excellent and explained how every dish on the menue was both cooked and presented. One of the top eateries in Ayr. Highly recommended. We'll be making this one of the restaurants on our regular circuit.

Went here for lunch with 2 friends. Been to their sister restaurant the Blair in Auchentiber and knew they had a gluten free menu, so didn't have to phone ahead.

The meal was fantastic, simple things like having gluten free rolls to go with the soup and not going without bread to dip are nice touches that make the Carrick Lodge and The Blair a great dining experience. The carrot and coriander soup is the best soup I have ever tasted and it got 9/10 from my friend who also ordered it. The Cullen Skink ordered by my other friend was "the best" he was ever tasted and he's a Cullen Skink expert!

For the main course I had the gluten free winter lamb stew with root veg and mash......simply delicious. My friends both ordered panini's and fries and both enjoyed them although one friend did comment she never saw the stew on the "normal menu" or she would have opted for it because it looked fantastic.

Best meal I have had in a long time and very reasonable priced. Marked down as good not excellent, as the waiter did not bring back the change when we paid the bill and obviously "assumed" it was a tip which I thought was a bit cheeky.

We stayed for a famaly party in ayr. The hotel was £5 in a taxi away from the centre of town! We got a fantastic reception from the staff who were all very friendly. We stayed in the ailsa Craig room it was very nice great shower and lots of storage space! The breakfast was good as well.

So I bet you are wondering after all that good stuff why it only gets 3/5 well it is the worst sleep I have EVER had! The bed room was a good size so why put a small bed In and I think the mattress was done!

This would have been a 5star stay if only the beds were better!

Stopped overnight at this lovely small hotel. Very clean, and tastefully decorated. Good comfortable beds and attention to detail in good quality provisions.

We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the restaurant food, which was excellent. The wine too was very good.

Staff were extremely helpful and friendly.

Arrived at hotel to a lovely, very reception from the staff. Shown to our room which had the usual teas/coffees, but also some fresh fruit, still and sparkling water. Had iron and ironing board and hair dryers in room handy if you forget your hair dryer!. Rooms very spacious and warm. The breakfast had loads to choose from my opinion fantastic and full English was excellent. Would definitely go back and would recommend to friends and family.
