Last year when we were working at GSK in Irvine we stayed in The Menzies Hotel. It was dreadful, so this year we picked The Gailes instead. Definitely a good choice! We didn't arrive until about 11pm, and were checked in very quickly. The room was nice and warm, with plenty of storage space and a nice big bed. There... More

I booked a night in this fabulous hotel for my friends birthday and couldn't have been more pleased. Every member of staff was very pleasant and took time for a chat. The evening meal and breakfast were both excellent. Our room faced onto the main road but we did not hear any traffic at all.

Comfortable cosy rooms. Bathrooms well furbished with soaps/ lotions etc. Helpful staff- extra tea/coffee delivered.Clothes iron, hairdryer in rooms. Wedding venues were good. Meal was good, but night time buffet was poor and not enough. Excellent full Sottish Breakfast.. although no Scottish slice sausage... had to make do with English!!!

We are on an Itison voucher, having been to the hotel before for a wedding we wanted to return to try the full facilities. We haven't been disappointed, very friendly staff who actually engage in conversation other than the usual basics chat, food is very good, rooms are well appointed and comfortable. The whole place has a lovely ambiance. We... More

It all went wrong from the beginning. I intended to purchase a voucher for the old loans inn just outside of Troon. Before buying the voucher I called the hotel to check availability. I was assured they could honour my request and as they were doing a midweek special I could book directly with them. On arrival at the old... More

Excellent hotel and great value. Comfortable large room, excellent dinner and breakfast all freshly prepared, nice spa adjacent. Staff were superb very friendly and attentive particularly receptionist, spa staff and resturant staff. All in all a winner and a lovely break to end the Christmas holidays. All in all a winner.

Stayed overnight as part of a deal. From initial greeting at reception to checkout, the staff, facilities and food was outstanding. The staff are so tuned into their customers in respect of service and general engagement. The rooms were spotless. The SPA and treatments were a joy. Food excellent. Only slight criticism was the cost of a bottle of branded... More

Stayed here recently on a business trip. The rooms were a lot more dated than they appeared on the website and despite having a heater in my room, were incredibly cold meaning I had to have a bath each night just to warm up. The staff however do increase the rating of this hotel as the food at both breakfast... More
