This was the second time we had stayed at the Hotel. Visiting family in nearby Ayr. We had the smae room as last year which had resently been decorated. Five minutes to the beach which has a lovely walk on the front.

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!)

We booked The Garden Room for a family birthday meal and had a fantastic time. Staff were extremely helpful right from the initial call to book right up to when we had to leave. Food was delicious and really beautifully presented. There was a good selection of wines and non-alcoholic wines which was great. Even though the bar and restaurant... More

We stumbled upon this venue for lunch, completely by accident, and cannot praise it highly enough! It was the Easter Bank holiday Monday, very busy, but the staff were not in the least flustered and went out of their way to make us feel welcome. We were seated in the restaurant, as the lounge bar was full, and the surroundings... More

Just back from a really great experience at the Chestnuts Hotel. We booked this for a small family celebration - using their Garden Room. This is ideal for intimate gatherings - takes up to 20. All the people working at the Hotel were superb; so helpful without being intrusive. They were happy to work around us - and that can't... More

The hotel staff are very helpful and the rooms very comfortable. There was a distinct smell of gloss paint in the building due to some refurbishment that was going on. If you want to eat before 7 its best to book a table as it gets very busy in the restaurant because of the offers they have on.

Another visit to Chesnuts did not leave us disappointed - great selection on the menu and well presented food. Staff were first class and nothing was a problem. We were with a party of five, most having a different meal and all came to the table piping hot. Looking forward to our next visit.

Had visited Chestnuts before for an lunch then an evening meal and on both occasions was very impressed both in the food quality and friendliness of the staff. Decided to have a weekend stay with my wife and we were not disappointed. The room we had was lovely, well appointed with a very large bed and bathroom. The bar and... More
