“Excellent for the price we paid”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

Stayed here Saturday night twin room with breakfast for £49 a real bargain. Rooms not five star but well decorated clean and warm only downside ensuite bathroom a bit dated but again clean. Breakfast choice was good for cerial but no grapefruit or yoghurt! Several selections for cooked breakfast whitch was served hot and fast. Owners made us feel very welcome.

We stayed at the North Beach Hotel prior to flying out from Prestwick Airport. Hotel was lovely - as was room. Restaurant was excellent - absolutely authentic, proper Indian food - some of it 'home style'. Absolutely amazing! Service was also excellent. Can't praise the food enough - if I had to mention a downside - it would be that the portions were huge! Thanx again guys and we will be back x

We stayed here for one night because of an early morning flight from Prestwick airport. The triple room was perfect for our family, the room was lovely and cosy and suited us perfectly. We had a lovely evening meal in the restaurant in the hotel. We found the staff very friendly and helpful, a taxi was booked for us and arrived very promptly at 4am. Would love to come back in the summer and enjoy the beach (and sunshine!).

We stayed for one night on 6th Sept 2012. The room was very cheap and the facilities very good for our purpose which was to be on hand for an early flight in the morning. A taxi was arranged by yhe management and duly arrived at 5am.
The owners are Indian and have made the restaurant into an Indian one. We enjoyed one of the best curries ever for dinner and it was very reasonably priced. This from someone who lived in Calcutta for 4 years!!

Hotel is really convenient if you land late at night at Prestwick Airport (5 mins from the car rental) and you want to use it as the departure point to tour Scotland.

We had a triple room for just 80 £, breakfast included, and it was really spacious, clean and with good mattresses.

Staff friendly and helpful, from the reception to the waiters at breakfast (a small selection of cereals and other "continental" stuff, but you can also order a full scottish breakfast, or eggs&bacon, etc. - so good value for money).

Only disappointing: most rooms overlook the front side, where the parking lot is situated - curtains at the windows are really not thick enough to protect from light from the lamp posts and sunlight in the morning. Should definitely solve the issue with thicker curtains.

Anyway, for the price paid, good value for money I would say.

We stayed at the North Beach Hotel after purchasing a groupon voucher. The hotel is in a fantastic location, to the side of Prestwick train station and facing the golf course. We found the hotel comfortable and staff friendly. The authentic indian food was superb and staff were attentive from the beginning until the end of our stay. We would have no hesitation in returning. Infact we have booked to stay when we return from holiday (we fly into Prestwick airport which is a short distance away), instead of driving home in the early hours of the morning. An enjoyable stay!

We booked this hotel on a deal & were not disappointed. The food & service were first class however the bedroom was at the back of the hotel & was quite dark & tired. The view was not great as it overlooked an extention but we were not there to look out windows. The bonus to this weekend was live music in most of the local pubs. This was the 1st time Prestwick had this & it was a great success. Roll on next year.

Room Tip: Ask for one overlooking the golf course
