Just returned after three nights at the Kinloch with my wife, grandson and two daughters. Food and staff were up to their usual high standard and we all enjoyed our short break. However, it was slightly tainted after the swimming pool was closed by some jobsworth from North Ayrshire Council who decided that the hotel needs a full time lifeguard due to the pool having a depth of 1.95m. This is after the hotel operating for 40 years without a guard. The pool is used by locals as well as hotel guests.
