Staff in the Waterside Restaurant add to the positive experience of visiting. Their warm, professional approach and the quality of the food make this a wee gem in Ayrshire coast not to miss. Great day out! Special mention to Evie & Neve, we booked an overnight in August!

This is a lovely hotel right on the beach. Excellent sea views. The staff are all extremely helpful and friendly. You can enjoy drinks or lunch / dinner outside if it’s a nice day. Excellent freshly cooked breakfast. Would definitely visit again.

Have stayed in the hotel previously and loved it so decided to just go for a lunch with the family and dog yesterday. Food was amazing, staff were super friendly and very dog friendly. The restaurant was very busy however we were served quickly and the food arrived quickly as well. Will definitely return again soon! Especially since we’ve found a dog friendly place which is a huge bonus for us!
