We stayed with friends for a 4 day break in February and had a fabulous time. The apartments are extremely spacious and very well equipped for self catering. The lovely open flame gas fire was a welcome bonus at the end of the day. We used the spa every day which was lovely and quiet midweek. Shame the joint sauna was out of action but not too important. The staff were wonderful especially a lovely door man whose name I've forgotten,an older man who had full regalia including feather cap ( apologies for what is no doubt the wrong title! ) he made a six year old very happy with a wee gift bag and was very entertaining. He was happy to have pics taken too.
We ate in Tappie Toories after our husbands played golf....we were the only ones there very late in the afternoon and the lady behind the bar was extremely accommodating. We all had steaks which were fabulous and fairly reasonably priced for being part of Turnberry. Our husbands played both Kintyre and Ailsa and loved it! ( even the 50 mile an hour winds on the Ailsa! )
Large supermarket is only a few miles way for stocking up and the views from our apartments were amazing,as was the view from the hotel and spa! I would definitely recommend!
There's a local restaurant nearby where the food was amazing....huge portions and all freshly made. It also had a huge selection of ice creams,cakes and chocolates for sale along with other goodies. The place was newly reopened and was absolutely spotless! It was so good we went back twice for lunch.it's called Johnnies Souter Inn.
One small gripe was slight issues with the apartment not being totally clean...fireplace not cleaned,and inside cupboards too. We also had to call for dishwasher tablets,loo roll and bin liners....very very minor point though and they were delivered very quickly. Would definitely return!
