Living quite locally I hadn't been to the fenwick hotel for a number of years but we went for a family birthday meal in November 2012 and I was amazed by the interior upgrades and refurbishment since the new management took over! The food was delicious, reasonably priced and good sized portions too! The staff were lovely and couldn't do enough for us. After the meal we had a few drinks in the comfy lounge area which played some nice music in the background and had a lovely atmosphere! Would recommend you try here as although from the outside the hotel doesn't look anything special, it's definitely worth a visit!

Room Tip: Didn't stay overnight so can't comment on the rooms

Was in the hotel for a birthday meal the food was great the staff were excellent and tended to our every need as quickly as possible. We were all impressed as the restaurant was so busy.
But what made our night was the COCKTAILS in the cosy cocktail lounge. As we perused the menu the attentive barman, who made all the cocktails that night, recommended that we tried the Sant Fe Sunset. It was fabulous. As the night came to a close we had only had a fraction of the cocktails from the menu. We will be back to try the rest! Highly recommend to everyone. The cocktails were just as good, maybe better, but the fraction of the price you would pay in most other hotels.
Fantastic highly recommend

We stayed at the junior suite room for a night. Good points- room size was good, nice furniture and nicely decorated. Really nice 4 poster bed. Bathroom was clean with a good sized tub.

Negative points- could not open the windows as it was very noisy because of motorway traffic. It got stuffy in the room and a AC would have helped. Shower was just a dribble to the extent that we just didn't bother using it. Basics such as a shower cap would have been nice and also toilet roll could be of higher quality.

I recently organised a charity ball at the Fenwick Hotel. I chose the Fenwick Hotel as my venue as my husband and I had held our silver wedding there in January and we were very impressed by the venue, food and staff.

My friend recently passed away, she had cancer and I decided to have a fundraising ball in her honour, as it would have been her 50th birthday. From the early stages of planning I was offered support and exellent ideas and pointers from Fran the extremely helpful and ever smiley event planner. I was in constant contact with the hotel, as this was my first charity ball, and the staff always answered my querys quickly - nothing ever seemed to phase them.

All of the setting up was taken out of my hands, the chair covers, the laying out of the tables, and the table decorations were all done by the staff - all i had to do was deliver all the items to the hotel and they set everything up for me. ( it looked wonderful when i arrived and it had all been done)

The night went without a hitch and the staff were always on hand - the meal was served with military precision, the bar staff were first class and the lay out of the venue was perfect for the fundraising event.

I am convinced that the night wouldn't have been the success it was without the help and hard work of the staff of the Fenwick Hotel and I take this opportunity to let everyone know that we raised £8275 for the Ayrshire Cancer Support - thanks again - Anne

Stayed one night here on as a base for a company function. Nice well equipped rooms and really good breakfasts. There has been a lot of refurbishment here and we were shown around some of the newer rooms which looked really nice. When they are all complete it will be great.

It is very close to the motorway but this did not bother us at all.

Even the little guest bar coped with our food orders at short notice and the late night drinks. well done.

Room Tip: Dont worry about being near the motorway. There was little road noise.

Our daughter's wedding reception was memorable for many reasons, including this first class venue and its' service standards. From the first visit at the planning stage to breakfast on the morning after the reception Fran Hannaford and her well trained team looked after us and our guests extremely well. Recently upgraded, the hotel can't be faulted. We recommend it, without hesitation.
