We stayed at the Western House Hotel over a weekend in September whilst attending a wedding elsewhere in Ayr.
On arrival, the main building of the hotel was stunning from the exterior, and the gardens were immaculate, however, we were directed over to our room in a separate building opposite the main hotel which were terribly dated and run down looking from the outside (courtyard rooms they call them). The view from our room window was an iron fence, topped with barbed wire, which was absolutely dismal, so we had to keep the curtains closed for the entire stay which was less than ideal. Overall the facilities in the room itself were okay, with a hospitality tray and a small bowl of sweets which was a nice touch. Additionally they left out hot chocolate sachets and some biscuits which were a welcome treat.
The staff that we interacted with were great, very pleasant and helpful. Considering the hotel was busy all weekend with weddings, this appeared not to impact on level of service.
It is fairly close to the Ayr town centre, and is right beside the race course. I would probably use this hotel again if I was visiting the area, but would make sure to pay that bit extra and go for a room in the main building.
