Booked this Hotel to cater for a large group, family meal. Unfortunately nobody was impressed by the main courses. Mine was cold and rubbery and certainly not worth the £17.95 charged for two courses. I wasn't asked how the meals were either. Stayed the night in a very cramped room where the miirrors were screwed to the wall (large silver... More

Went here for lunch on Saturday. The hotel itself is beautiful. Staff were very friendly and attentive. Meals were really good. I was so happy to see they had a vegan menu as this can be a struggle in some restaurants. Not only that the menu had a lot to offer and what I got tasted amazing. Will be recommending... More

The family visit here at least 2-3 times a year for family meals. Never disappointed. Beautiful food,and very nice staff. Been here in parties of up to 9 and the service and food is just as good if you were at a table of 2. First class. Always enjoy going back

A reasonably regular haunt for the family when visiting the seaside. We received the customary warm welcome and we're promptly seated. Menus and drinks order taken upon seating with a high chair requested for baby. High chair took 10 minutes to appear at which point food order taken. Food order arrived less cheese on the burger and the burgers overly... More

We were looking for somewhere local to celebrate our Birthday that we had not yet visited. And we were not disappointed. Both my (Twin) sister and I and her husband thoroughly enjoyed our meals. We each chose different mains and puddings and all were excellent. And all at a very reasonable price. We will certainly be visiting again. Would highly... More

My friend booked us a table here on a Friday night as its one of her favourite places to go. It was my first visit and certainly wont be the last. Great atmosphere, attentive waiting staff, clean and good, varied menu. I had the lobster and trio of desserts. Very tasty! Look forward to my next visit.

We stayed here for one night recently while touring Scotland. The staff were all really nice and very friendly. The rooms are big and bed very comfortable, the rooms are very clean as well. The bathrooms are not the greatest.. The water would make noises when using it, very annoying. The wifi in the rooms did not work or very... More

We were looking for a restaurant in Ayr to take relatives for lunch. Not being familiar with the area, we had a look on trip advisor and chose this restaurant. What a good choice! We were warmly welcomed on arrival and shown to our table straight away. There was an extensive menu to choose from with something to suit all... More

We both had the starter of patty which was lovely, i had chicken tempura which wasn't good at all usually its strips of chicken they gave me balls... More

Went here on Wednesday night, party of 6 adults and 1 toddler. The staff couldn't have been any more helpful as one of the party had a food intolerance and checked everything for us and came back with suggestions when parts of the dish were not suitable. Menu choices were fab, food when it came was fabulous! Everyone of us... More
