Reviewed October 27, 2013

Excellent evening meal. Breakfast even better. Faultless. The room was clean, tidy and spacious. Good parking and very accessible. Off the beaten track, but with a good restaurant and bar at very good pricing that was not a problem.

Very impressed and streets ahead of experiences with the Holiday Inn chain, Arrived with a party of 40 Ulster farmers on a study tour and found the manager and lady receptionist very friendly and extremely efficient.
I have never seen a group booked in so fast and in such a friendly manner in 40 years experience of these study tours.

Room Tip: book early

Stayed here on business, I seem to stay in a lot of premier inns - still you know what you are getting most of the time. This one is a little bit nicer though.....The restaurant is on site so no going out in the rain, it is a Thyme restaurant, and I have been a bit disappointed in these in the past but this one is great. Great menu which lives up to its offerings. I can forgive the 40 min wait for a salad because the staff were lovely. Very friendly and make a mean hot chocolate. All the staff were friendly, and the porridge in the morning was to die for!! I could have sliced it it was so thick!! (and I like it like that) set me up for the day.... Would definitely recommend - still a shame though that premier inns don't put decaffeinated in the coffee machines - really hate the packet stuff.

We arrived with our elderly friend after a very good day at the races. The reception we received was cheerful and professional and very welcome after a long day of fun. We had booked 2 rooms at this hotel on a £29 per room deal. The hotel is very well thought out in layout and the rooms are more than adequate for any length of stay. The idea of using your door card to put the lights on is fantastic and it solves problems of leaving lights on.

The shower room was more than adequate and very clean and tidy. The family rooms consist of a sofa too which is a nice touch if your a couple rather than just sitting on the bed.

Our friend joined us for dinner and we received again fantastic friendly service from all staff and good banter and chat. We took our night caps back to our rooms which was also not a problem.

Breakfast was also very organised and explained as a help yourself buffet arrangement. The only disapointment for our friend was no marmalade avialable, but staff did offer apologies. We had our plates cleared promptly and all staff where very professional in a non intrusive way when asking if everything was ok.

We found the customer service excellent in this little gem of a premier inn. From arrival, greeting the housekeeping staff in the morning to leaving all staff extremely genuinely freindly. We would stay here again if down to Ayr again in the future.

We have stayed in the competitors hotel opposite but this is far superior on what they offer and its how budget hotels should be.

From my arrival to departure the next day I really could not find any faults with this establishment, the check in was smooth efficient and professional, we were made very welcome, there are no phones in the rooms but you are told reception is available 24/7 if you require any assistance. We did book in for a meal which was decent more than adequate and fairly I priced for what you get. (typical to that of wetherspoons etc establishments) The rooms do not have baths they all have showers but again did not pose any sort of problems. They only leave out enough coffee, sugar and milk for 1 cup each in the rooms but a visit to reception quickly put that situation right with the staff telling you to help yourself to coffee sugar and milk from a huge box. All in all for what you are paying to stay here it is more than fairly priced compared with some of it's competitors living on names and reputations from years gone by. Breakfast service is smooth and efficient with plenty staff on hand to help you with any kind of help you require, all in all 1st class and will definitely use again.

While the men where booked into Turnberry Golf for their weekend of golf, the girls booked into The Premier Inn at AYR. The staff were friendly and professional and the Hotel was spotlessly clean and comfortable. The locality of the Hotel was within easy reach of Ayr town which we visited via taxi just £5 and found the town to be friendly and had all the shops we were looking for including a Primark! Lovely restaurants and bars although we ate at the Hotel as the food was excellent and very cheap. I would recommend this Hotel to anyone. The service was excellent and the staff extremely professional, friendly and helpful. Great value for money and very good food in a lovely, cosy, clean and warm environment.
