“Overall very good”
Reviewed August 24, 2014

Overall it has been recently refurbished and is a good looking environment to stay in. Clearly still working on the hotel since taking over. Room was of a satisfactory size and well appointed. Only negative was the bed which I found excessively hard but appreciate this is a personal preference. Breakfast was good quality and ideal size of portion. Staff were friendly.

I went to a friends wedding back in May at this hotel. They managed to squeeze us into the restaurant for dinner the night before and the waitress was excellent, even though we weren't the easiest bunch. My room was very comfortable and check in was a breeze. The wedding itself was fantastic, a real treat. The staff at this hotel are excellent. I am a professional toastmaster and work at many hotels and although just a guest at this wedding I was very impressed by the staff's attention to detail and the level of customer service. The way the hotel has been set out makes very good use of the space that it has. Good sized stage, function room/ceremony room (ceremony room functional rather than grand, however).

Many of these off the motorway hotels are old stuffy and geared for conferences, this one is a jewel in the Larkhall crown. It's great. The new bar looks fantastic.

The only gripe I had was not one I voiced because it's a personal one to me. The breakfast was a buffet. I hate breakfast buffets. Hot food should be cooked to order. If Premier Inn can do it, anyone can. but that's just me it seems.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone planning a contained wedding. (There are no grounds for photos tho, just a water feature, so make sure you visit beforehand)

Stayed here for 2 nights and loved this hotel. The hotel is handy for the motorway and there is little traffic noise from it. The hotel is modern throughout and is very clean. The hotel restaurant has a good variety of food and delicious at that.

This hotel is well located just 20miles from Glasgow and 5minutes away from the M74.The rooms are well appointed and spacious .The hotel is quiet considering how near the M74 is. Only one fault in the bathroom is that it is hard to get in and out of the bath and there is no handrail to help you. Staff at the reception were friendly and helpful.
Unfortunately the staff in the restaurant were not so welcoming and the food was only average. A big disappointment. The breakfast for someone who only eats continental was very limited in choice .

Stayed in a tent on this site and the staff were very welcoming and friendly. The site has a modest camping field and a lot of static caravans. There is a play area on the camping field and plenty of space. There is a shop on site and it is about 15 mins drive into ayr. I would recommend to famillies and also anyone really. There is also night entertaiment in the on site bar.

I am commenting from the point of view of a guest to an all day function who also stayed the night.

I found the main room/foyer very impressive upon arrival - very 'American' and contemporary in terms of the style and decor. It is a huge space and the bar was very smart, with 'modern colours' used throughout.

The function room was very tastefully decorated for the wedding and the staff were helpful.

In terms of the night function the shape of the room didn't lend itself to the most practical layout and therefore atmosphere, however it worked ok.

The food was nice and the bar area in the function suite was large, which was good to see as aften function suites have small bar areas leading to large queues.

The room was a good size and again tastefully decorated. The bathroom was clean and contemporary too.

The main room/foyer was set up for the breakfast and this worked ok too.

There was work being done on the restaurant so the fact this has been refurbished will also enahnce the venue.
