“Excellent hotel, Exceptional staff and good location! Highly Recommend!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

We stayed for one night on 3rd January 2014.

We stayed in the premium executive room which proved to be amazing value for money. Room is very spacious and comfortable. Room also comes with a large ensuite bathroom with Jacuzzi bath. That not all included in the price comes another room exclusively for your use with toilet, sink, huge power shower and private sauna. Bed was very comfortable too.

Room aside the breakfast was fantastic and hotel also has a nice bar and dining area. Ideal if you are planning a visit to Ayr, Irvine, Kilmarnock or a day trip to Arran or just looking to get away to relax and unwind.

Should be #1 in Irvine based on my experience.

This was my second time in Kidron House Hotel and I can say it has just got better. It was yet another fabulous stay. Excellent service, great food and helpful staff. Also the addition of their new bar and lounge area really helped my stay to become more relaxing and enjoyable. Great job guys keep it up. Can't wait to come back again.

My partner and I stayed here for one night. Staff helpful. Food excellent and freshly prepared. Breakfast a treat with delicious black pudding.
Bedroom comfortable, warm,cozy and clean. I would highly recommend this. It is ideal for visiting Ayr, Kilmarnock, Irvine.

I have stayed at the Kidron on a number of occasions recently staying for a 3 week stint due to work. I would like to share my superb experience with everyone.

The staff on reception are welcoming and friendly, the food both for breakfast and evening meals are delicious. The room's i have stayed in have been well appointed with comfortable beds.

Recent work to the lounge has improved the lounge / dinning room area giving a nicer feel.

If you are considering coming to this area for work or pleasure, this would be an ideal place to stay.

Good helpful and friendly staff happy to please all customers as far as I could tell. My room was clean with controllable heating, I turned it down despite being December! Once I found the shower power button the bathroom became functional and clean also. Personally on a business trip I could do with a desk, others might want a dressing table.

Room Tip: I had a room in the separate building away from the reception which possibly helped on having a peac...

My friend Esther and I stayed here a few months ago. We went from Belfast to Scotland on a shopping trip. Kidron House Hotel was highly recommended to me from a friend. It was absolutely perfect. I could not fault one single thing. From the staff who welcomed us on arrival, even booking our taxis and telling us where best to shop. The room was beautiful and the food amazing. We loved Kidron House hotel and will definitely be back. So much so that we may very well book for Christmas :-)

I just stayed very briefly at the Kildron Hotel as I got in late and had to leave early for the Arran Ferry. The guy on reception was really friendly and the room was good and spotlessly clean. The bed was really comfortable with lovely sheets and bedding and the power shower was excellent. Unfortunately I had a really poor nights sleep due to three guests next door arriving late and deciding to talk and shout from half midnight till half two. Although there was no night staff I eventually called the hotel number and the guy who checked me in came and spoke to the neighbours - which worked thank goodness. No-one else seems to have mentioned noise as an issue in their reviews so I think I was just unlucky. The hotel dealt with the situation and in future it might be worth having an 'emergency' night number for guests as the first time I called the hotel number there was no answer so I decided to persevere with the noise for longer. If it weren't for the noisy guests I would have had a really comfortable stay. There isn't a category for good on here but that is where I would rank the hotel.

Hi Gemma,thank you for your positive comments concerning our staff and room quality.We are so glad you found your experience with us good.Regarding the noise from the room next to yours I have spoken to the member of staff who was night porter that evening an he has confirmed he spoke to the guests in room 5 asking them to keep the noise level down.Apologies about this as we want every guest to have a first class experience with us.We shall now add an emergency number to our information folders.Although this is a very rare complaint it was nevertheless disruptive to yourself.I would be pleased to pass on a 25% discount voucher to be use against your next stay with us.We would love for your good experience to become a great one on your next stay.Best wishes from all at Kidron
