“Fantastic hotel”
Reviewed August 4, 2011

We booked this hotel for our anniversary on a dinner, bed and breakfast deal. We could not find fault with anything and will stay here again. The room was a good size and spotlessley clean, with a real comfortable bed. The food was also first class and would eat here even if we were not staying. All staff members that we came in contact with were also terrific and chatted with us, quite rare in most hotels these days. This hotel has recently been refurbished to a high standard and the management team also have a high standard of staff. Keep up the good work guy's.

Room Tip: Phone the hotel direct.

I'd been here before and was pleasantly surprised to find it has been transformed by an extensive refurbishment. My room was quiet, large, contained an enormous good-quality bed and had high standard fitments and finishes. It has two restaurants; we chose the cheaper carvery which was a very good standard considering the price. It's not situated in the most charming part of Prestwick/Ayr but the quality and price more than compensate.

Just returned from 3 nights at the Carlton and it's one of the few hotels, where you can honestly find no faults. The general decor of the 2 restaurants, 2 lounge bars and reception area are par excellence. The bedrooms are all decorated to an exceptionally high Standard with both Bathroom and bedroom, spotlessly clean. We had the Carvery, which for £9.99 for 2 courses, is superb value. Every member of staff, is so pleasant and helpful which adds to it's success.
The hotel's position, is perfect for visiting the surrounding countryside by car or local transport. A 2 minute walk to the bus stop, you will find regular buses to Ayr, or in the other direction, to Troon, Kilmarnock, Glasgow etc.
The hotel is back from the main road, to allow a quiet night's sleep. The double glazing is also of a standard, to eliminate the noise of the "Squaking" gulls!
To the lovely receptionist, Fiona - From ourselves in room "203", thanks for your encouragement for us to visit the Isle of Arran, on the way home. we had a fabulous day there, and would certainly revisit in the future, as we will to the Carlton!

Stayed at this hotel for only one night on a recent business trip. The hotel has been recently refurbished to a very high standard with good quality finishes and furniture.
Good choice of 2 restaurants including a very good value carvery. Pleasant bar with a good outside seating area and TV showing live sports. Staff are extremely friendly and efficient.
Breakfast also excellent with a well cooked range from the buffet.
Planning to return in the near future for a longer stay and combine with golf. Superbly located for some wonderful golf corses.
Overall highly recommended and offering exceptional value for money.

We stayed at the Carlton Hotel, Prestwick and had a fantastic break away. Their staff were very pleasant and helpful and the hotel looked fabulous. There was plenty of car parking spaces available. Our bedroom was clean and spacious with a modern bathroom. We had a meal in their restaurant and found a great selection on offer to eat, and an excellent atmosphere around us. We also ordered from their night service menu and got high quality food delivered to our room. A full english breakfast was available in the morning, which we thoroughly enjoyed and was included in the rate of the room.

I was very pleased with this hotel and would most definately recommend to family and friends. First class staff and most definately first class food. Cannot praise highly enough.

I stayed for seven nights with three friends on a golfing break. The hotel is first class rooms clean and recently refurbished we were on a bed breakfast and evening meal basis and the food was very good. What really makes the hotel stand out are the staff who are without exception excellent, just the right level of friendliness and efficiency. The manager Simon was very attentive ensuring that all was OK. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.
