my brother and I sent our parents here for a 2 night break to celebrate their 40th wedding anniversary and the owners could not have been more helpful. when i booked i was sent a voucher so they didn't have to see the cost etc, they just handed this over and everything else was taken care of!
this is a fantastic find, a lovely family run hotel is in a beautiful location and the view from the room was just stunning, straight out over the bay! they had a very spacious family room but the extra bed was round a corner so would have still been private had they needed it. it was spotlessly clean and the main bed was huge! lots of tea,coffee and lovely chocolate biscuits were on good supply, free wi-fi, full tv channels and all of the bathroom shower gel etc you could wish for should you forget it.
they had a meal in the restaurant in the evening which was delicious, the service was excellent. the same for breakfast, just so much food - you will never go hungry!!
i would fully recommend the Woodland Bay hotel to anyone, couple or family as it would suit all and they would love to go back

Room Tip: take the sea view! its stunning

My now husband and I spent the 4 nights before our wedding at Woodland Bay, with our first night being New Years eve. After our relentlessly long flight from the US, we just wanted to relax in a nice quite place for a few days. Woodland Bay Hotel couldn't have been more perfect for this. Our room was spacious, clean, comfortable and quiet. Gillian and all of the Hotel staff were very friendly and very attentive. We booked a table at their Hogmanay celebration our first night in and it was fabulous! Excellent food, great live music, and a very entertaining night overall. After a late New Year's night and bit of sleeping in, we were yet again impressed with a delicious breakfast the next morning (and every morning there after). There really isn't anything negative to say about Woodland Bay Hotel. We won't stay anywhere else when in the Girvan area!

This was our third visit to the Woodland Bay Hotel and although we're only around 65 miles away, we love the whole experience of the Woodland Bay.

This time, it was a Groupon deal with a steak dinner included with B&B for 2 at £69 for the night. We always upgrade to the suite with mezzanine floor at an additional cost of £20, as it has a living area downstairs, and is just so home from home.

The accommodation is immaculate, staff so naturally friendly, and the attention to detail, with the wee touches of stuff like face cloths makes this so comfy.

Food is great, and although the steak could have done with being a wee bit more tender, the flavours and accompaniements were just right.

Loved the new function area, and as always, the breakfasts are amazing. Will definitely be back soon.

Room Tip: Any of the suites are my favourites

I have now stayed in this hotel twice now and both times have had good experience. My use was for business, close to the ferry and a short distance onto Ayr and to Glasgow.
I will use this hotel again and would consider using it for personal reasons if required.

Rooms are very clean and warm - the breakfast is excellent.

Room Tip: All rooms of high standard that I have used

Me and my hubby and little dog stayed for two nights this february we got the deal off groupon, and so glad we did ,what a fantastic hotel, staff, food and the room was outstanding we up graded to the seaview room. I had read a comment on trip advisor saying the sea view rooms were spoilt by the traffic on the "busy" road having being out all day in the fresh air once our heads hit the pillows we didnt hear a thing till next morning. The breakfasts and the evening meals were gorgeous having had the full scottish we were set up for the day. All of the staff and the owners were lovely and very friendly and made us feel really welcome nothing was to much for them. Would definitely recommend it and will certainly go back .

This is the second time I have been to the Woodland Bay Hotel. The first time was for 2 nights and this time was for just one night. The rooms ares excellent. I have experienced both the standard room and the superior room a was very impressed by each. It is an understatement to say the staff are helpful. It is clear that the staff are well trained and work with a passion for the hotel. The food, wine and service are top notch. I cannot recommend this hotel enough. Furthermore, excellent value for money. I will be going back hopefully sooner rather than later.

Room Tip: The superior room is worth it as it has two floor and didnt cost that much extra. I would opt for th...
