Had lunch with my Daughter here. The staff were very friendly, helpful and efficient. The food was excellent and portion sizes very good. I had pate and siloin steak and my Daughter, a vegetarian, had a fruit starter followed by a vegetable goulash. We very heartily reccomend this restaurant.

Only here for 1 night but we were made most welcome by all staff. Our room was very clean and comfortable overlooking hotel garden. There is an extensive dinner menu and also many items on a separate Gluten Free menu. Food was excellent including breakfast with a large choice of hot food. There is also a well stocked bar. Good...

We were apprehensive as this long-established restaurant with rooms has changed hands. Some locals claim it has changed but I don't agree. The decor and menu look exactly the same and I believe the new owner also kept on a lot of the former staff. One improvement is the extensive gluten free menu. The food was as good as ever.

Went out for Dinner with my wife to celebrate what would have been the 92nd birthday of my late mother. My mother used to go to this restaurant twice a week on her own for lunch for 6 years following the death of my father. I would join her once every 3 weeks or so as I lived in England...

Current deal offers 2 beautiful courses from the set menu, plus coffee or tea for £12.50. Prawn cocktail and Cajun Chicken (with sour cream dip) yum, yum. This is my favourite place to have lunch at the moment.

I stayed at this hotel while I was working away for 6 nights. The whole experience was awesome. Good rooms, amazing staff, great location for where I was working, the train station, the city centre and for my nightly walks on the beach. The food here is unbelievable, 5 star and so cheap (even though my dinner was paid for)...

This was my first visit to Ayr and Scotland, the room we stayed in was great value for money, the staff from welcoming, showing to room, bar, breakfast and check out were all very pleasant and lovely people. I had a change of plans which meant I couldn't stay the scheduled 2 nights and the staff on reception was more...

Lovely room with excellent furnishings, linen etc and the rarity of two chairs in the room so that we could both sit down and read. Nice little touches such as bottles of water in the room. Comfortable beds. Dinner was excellent as were the staff in the bar/dining room. A fair price too. Breakfast could have been improved in that...
