Premier Inn, Racecourse, Ayr...superb. The staff were very helpful, polite and nothing was a bother. The Premier Inn has found the perfect ingredient for one night stay travellers. The rooms, as always were very clean, comfortable beds and very functional. I have stayed at a few Premier Inn Hotels and am never disappointed. Keep up the good work! You're worth...

All the good stuff expected from Premier Inn was there. No issues at all but did notice the room was smaller than usual. That may be why the room was cheaper than other Premier Inn sites? Good restaurant on site.

Stopped here to prevent a long last commute and first impressions were fantastic. The gentleman who booked me in was great very nice pleasant and I felt I could chat with him for ages. Room was as expected for premier inn but it was cold. Took about 15 mins of playing with the heater controls to get the heating on...

Wife and I used this hotel as we were attending a wedding nearby. Staff all extremely friendly, hotel/room clean, free wi-fi and plenty of parking. We arrived very early (11.30am) and our room was ready which was great. My wife had e-mailed beforehand to let them know we would be arriving early. Would definitely recommend.

From the minute we arrived, we were made very welcome. The room was spotless - as you would expect from Premier Inn. The only negative I could find was that while the shower rooms are great, the glass panel at the side of the door means that when one of you goes to the loo during the night the light...

A well run hotel, friendly and courteous staff. Well priced for the area. Rooms a little cold though something I have found lately in other premier inns. Didn't eat here so can't comment on the food as I didn't eat here. Other than that a good stop off point.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The going's always good at the Premier Inn Hotel Ayr/A77 Racecourse. With great road, rail and air links, you'll be living it up or getting down to business in no time. Back a winner at the home of the Scottish Grand National and William Hill Gold Cup. Zip into Glasgow to see the sights. Get into the swing at some of the country's most famous and historic golf courses: Royal Troon and Turnberry. And when all the racing around is done, return to our friendly team, spacious rooms and super-comfy beds. Directions: From the North - join the M8 (signposted Greenock, Glasgow Airport, Kilmarnock). Leave the M8 at Junction 22, then join the M77 (signposted Kilmarnock, Prestwick Airport). Continue forward onto the A77 (signposted Kilmarnock, Prestwick Airport, Ayr, Stranraer). At Dutch House roundabout take the 1st exit onto A77 (signposted Ayr, Stranraer). At Whitletts roundabout take 4th exit onto Heathfield Road (signposted B743, Prestwick). Stay in right hand lane and turn right at the first set of traffic lights just after car showrooms onto Wheatpark Road then take 1st right onto Whearpark Place. Hotel entrance is straight ahead. ... more   less
