“Value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2014

I booked last year for our party of 8 golfers which required a £45/head advance fee. Quite understandable as the peak season approaches for golf visitors to this special west coast of Scotland with Turnberry, Royal Troon, Prestwick and Western Gailes all in close proximity. The single rooms at £54pp including breakfast were quite small but all had en suite facilities and were quite adequate. Twin bedded rooms or doubles were £74pp including breakfast all with en suite bathrooms and rather more generous space. Although on three floors there are no lifts so this is a hotel for the fit and agile? My only real grumble was the absence of safety handles to ease access in and out of the bath to use the shower. With two metal hips, I have to be very careful with this manoeuvre and certainly use such handles if available. They are not costly and would help to prevent any bad slips. The breakfasts were freshly cooked and perfectly acceptable but offered without much imagination eg very little fresh fruit, choice of yoghurts, moderate coffee and packaged, cold pastry and bread items. However, the staff were most accommodating and pleasant so I would certainly return.

Room Tip: Certainly ask for No.12 as it faces the sea and offers great hanging and draw space in the entrance...

Thank you for taking time to write a review - it is appreciated.

I take on board your point regarding safety handles and will certainly take this forward with our Maintenance Department.

I am sorry you found our breakfast only acceptable. There is always a choice of fresh melon, orange and berries available together with a basket of fruit such as bananas, apples, plums or whatever is in season. As to the "packaged" pastry - this is a requirement from Environmental Health as it is a self-service buffet. Our coffee is freshly ground with beans being supplied by Brodies of Mussleburgh.

I hope this answers all your points and hope you might visit again.

Kind regards.

Although my party of 9 golfers have never been to Prestwick before,I can honestly say that my dealings with Parkstone Hotel have to date been excellent - no supplementary charge for single room was a really nice gesture and much appreciated.
This is our 17th year of a few days golf away and we have experienced many hotels during that time but I anticipate this year will be exceptional if the majority of reviews are to be believed.
The only establishment matching the really high ratings is my local hotel in Freuchie,The Lomond Hills and I am sure my group will have an enjoyable stay in The Parkstone.

Just back from a 2 night stay at this hotel. We normally stay in Troon but decided to try Prestwick for a change as we have passed through it on numerous occasions. We decided on the Parkstone and we were not disappointed. As other reviewers have said it is perhaps a bit dated but it is a family run hotel still in the original family. Dinner in the restaurant on both nights was excellent with a good choice of dishes and served well presented by a friendly and pleasant staff. Breakfast was served in another room where there was a wide range of starters served buffet style with order then taken for hot breakfast which had a good few options apart from the standard Scottish breakfast such as kippers, porridge and omelettes. This appears to be an extremely well run hotel and I would recommend it to anyone.

Just back from a lovely one night stay in the Parkstone with dinner. Staff were very friendly and although decor may be slightly dated the sea view more than made up for this. Got upgraded to executive room on arrival which was a lovely surprise and it was immaculate. Food was fantastic, only slight negative i can say is the bar was left unattended for long periods of time which meant a wait for a drink after dinner, however the hotel was very quiet so you can understand this, im sure on busier evenings this would not be the case and the staff were very attentive when they appeared. Perfect place for a wee getaway with plenty of nice beaches within 5-10 mins drive. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Room 36- Fanastic View!!

this is the 3rd or 4th time we have visited this hotel and we enjoyed it as much as before, the check in was swift even though we arrived far to early and it meant when we went back to the hotel we could go straight to our room.

the food was nice and we both tried something different then we had before and it was presented well.

service at breakfast we a bit slow and we had to ask for orange juice refills etc

the staff are friendly and always willing to please>

Room Tip: sea view rooms are nice although its luck unless you pay in advance

Stayed at hotel for a 2 night break with an Amazon voucher. Food was delicious and the staff were so friendly and always made time for you. We were also in Room 14 which gives you great views of the sea. It was a very relaxing break and thanks to all the staff for that.
