Had a one night stay on a Groupon deal. This is a small country house Hotel with 6 bedrooms in the main house and an annex some distance away which has 7 bedrooms. We stayed in the main house in the Margaruitte Suite - large bedroom with king size bed and tea and coffee facilities, a large bathroom with old fashioned bath and a separate power shower cabinet. There was also a lounge in the suite, with a settee and flat screen TV.

A pleasant welcome and cream tea on arrival and superb dinner with food that must rank with the best in Scotland, tastefully served by attentive staff. Coffee at open log fire was a nice touch, served with homemade shortbread. Breakfast was a treat, looking out over the valley of the River Ayr. The hotel is under the flight path for Prestwick Airport, but the Airport now has so few flights that what few planes flew over were barely noticeable.

The Hotel is a hidden gem and the whole experience exceeded my expectations.

Room Tip: Upgrade to a room in the main house, it is well worth the extra.

We went to Enterkine last week, after receiving a voucher for Christmas. We upgraded to the Woodland Lodge and I'm so glad we did. The website pictures do not do it justice. The lodge was absolutely beautiful, it's situated across from the hotel and is a haven of luxury!
The dinner , which was included, was fantastic. The Goats cheese soufflé was to die for, the menu was innovative and we enjoyed every course.
After dinner we sat in front the the fire and enjoyed some drinks with other guests. We will definitely return to Enterkine, we had a lovely night and being so near to Glasgow It's great for a night away without travelling far. Highly recommended!

We stayed one night in January purchased as a groupon deal.

We were showwn to the Enterkine View room which was huge with a massive balcony.

Included in the deal was cream tea and dinner, cream tea was excellent in front of the fire. Dinner was extremely good, only niggle was having to pay extra for extra courses and extra for beef but was worth it. The food although very Masterchef style was outstanding.

The hotel does suffer from planes going overhead but that added to the excitement of sitting on the balcony watching them come into land.

Breakfast in the morning was nice with only one gripe - the sausage tasted quite cheap - and why not lorne sausage it's supposed to be a scottish breakfast!

We loved it, staff were friendly without being over fussy and it was a lovely night away. We will be back!

Room Tip: Ask for the Enterkine View Room, you won't regret it especially on a hot summer night!

This was the second time we have spent the night here. Both times we paid to upgrade to a room in the main house. Both rooms were large and nicely appointed. The staff were friendly and very attentive without being intrusive. The evening meal was delicious and was rounded off with coffee by the open fire. We will definitely be back,

Room Tip: An upgrade to the main house is definitely worth it to make your stay extra special.

My Fiancee and I spent the night in the woodland lodge and loved it. Its quiet and secluded but only a minutes walk from the front door of the hotel. Great service from all the staff and the dinner in the restaurant was outstanding. Following a peaceful and very comfortables nights sleep we enjoyed a lovely cooked breakfast in the restaurant. We had to complete our stay by giving a home to an Enterkine bear. Would recommend staying here to anyone.

Room Tip: Go for the lodge for a romantic retreat
