We enjoyed all aspects of our stay. The service was faultless -friendly yet efficient. Restaurant meals were all fantastic and breakfast very good. We enjoyed the beer garden on a couple of nights. Room was very spacious and comfortable. Block out curtains on the very large windows were much appreciated due to the late sunset we are not used too.

Pretty garden, although a little shady. Good Sunday lunch, with non roast dinner options. Good choices and delicious. Charming bar area and good service. There are a number of hotels nearby open to non residents. This is worth a visit.

I have eaten here on many, many occasions and it never disappoints! Food and service is simply superb. I take my family that visit from Cambridge and they love this place as much as me.....can't rave about it enough.... Family owned and it shows as the staff do care.....

Comfortable, spotless and reasonably priced accommodation along with a high standard of food make this an excellent choice in Ayr. Used by locals for food (always a good sign) and tends to be VERY busy- strongly recommend booking. Friendly and attentive service.

We wanted a beer garden to catch the evening sun The mussels were a bonus for my better half. I had a very nice salad. The staff were pleasant and very busy. Would definitely return. The food was good for the money. Quite happy with the portion sizes and the overall experience was very good

We had a very comfortable stay here. The price was very good 80 pounds for a double room. It was a very spacious room with king size bed, a large flat screen TV, and a comfortable settee.

Came here with some friends and family. Great to finally have somewhere that has a huge menu choice and and a dedicated vegan menu! It's nice to actually get to go out for a meal and not get the usual choice of a vegan option (Salad or vegetable tempura!)
