The bed was so comfortable and the room looked out onto a garden area and gave us a quiet and relaxing stay for 3 days. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Have stayed there before and would do so again.

You cant tell straightaway this hotel is privately owned - and that the staff like to work there. We always stay in the Business level rooms which are brand new, nicely appointed and very comfortable. The staff go the extra mile and nothing is too much trouble. They are doing everything right - a nice touch to be offered a...

We stayed in a Business Level King room; the bed and pillows were luxuriant and I would rather not have had to request the 3am wakeup call for our flight back home the next morning! It was lovely to stay here after 12 nights in a campervan and we were impressed from the pick up from Maui to our drop...

Check in was no problem, quick and efficient. Staff was very friendly. The room itself was old and used. The ceiling in some places (lobby, shower) is nothing for tall people. I am 1.94m tall and had to watch my head and could not use the shower standing up. It is a normal hotel but nothing to write home about.

Such a great hotel! The service was amazing, staff so friendly and nothing was a big ask, they wanted to help you in every single way!

We had the pleasure of staying here just a few days ago, everything was fantastic except the food at the onsite restaurant. This is a beautiful property, established, historic Largs and luxurious. Tennis court unfortunately had cars parked on it, but there's an amazing indoor heated pool and hot tub and a very small gym that accommodates 3-4 people. The...

The first time I stayed here it was solely due to the fact it is so close (four minutes drive) from airport terminal, but I've stayed three times since. Excellent staff at front of house, room service, housekeeping, and food and beverage. Comfortable beds with quality linen, well appointed bathrooms, good TV and quiet rooms. Restaurant was good for breakfast,...
