Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

If you are looking for a souless corpolrate place then this is not it! this wee place is full of quirky historical and amusing ornaments and definetley has the personal touch.It is a little old fashioned and could maybe do with a bit of refurbishment but we couldn't fault the cleanliness of the place,it was absolutely spotless.
i had booked a room months ago( we were attending an event nearby) and paid on booking(spoke to a lady) .However on checking in the gentleman informed me that i hadn't paid as it hadn't been noted down.Thankfully i had a record of payment on my phone and he was happy to accept that i had paid.Perhaps the communication systems/records need improving?? and maybe some staff training?
Anyway the host was very welcoming and chatty and very helpful.
the breakfast was very good , plenty of choice of cereals,yoghurt,fruit juice and a cooked breakfast
.the location of the hotel is great and easy to get to.ts a 5 minute walk to the beach.There are good parking facilities at the hotel.
we will definetly visit again as the host was so welcoming and are keen to try out the resturaunt and beer garden in the summer.
there is also a nice bar and a pool room.

It has been a difficult 2½ years for everyone and we've been apprehensive about venturing forth after the worst of Covid. So I was pleased to find in the Good Beer Guide, this quiet traditional hotel on the southside of Ayr, overlooking the old racecourse site, now a park and golf course. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable and we found the staff welcoming and friendly. A good breakfast set us up for the day and an evening meal was enjoyable, tasty and good value. Having missed socialising for so long, the locals and guests provided us with plenty of friendly chatter in the cosy bar at night. Well done Abbotsford and staff!

Really good quality food and generous portions. We've had dinner three times during lockdown and the service has been excellent each time. I don't know if the hotel offers a delivery service as we always collect our order in person. Well done Paul and Jason.

Had a very strange experience when we stayed here a few days ago.
The beds were tired and sagging and the bathroom was like the curate’s egg, clean in parts. When used by my wife, the ancient hair dryer (last tested 2017), went out with a spike of flame and a cloud of smoke. At breakfast the sausages were uncooked in the middle and the toast consisted of four half slices of dry, hard, but untoasted bread and two pieces of cold, hard toast, one of which had a bite taken out of it. I pointed this out to the cook and asked for some fresh toast; he yelled something about the bite being “just a knock off” and “ would do his very best” (derisively) as he disappeared into to the kitchen.
At the reception desk when checking out I mentioned the hair dryer to the elderly man whom I presumed was the owner, however when I mentioned the bite out of the toast, he erupted in fury in the middle of my sentence, shouting “that’s rubbish, we don’t want your sort here; get out!”. Completely furious, shouting and screaming insults he dragged a piece of our luggage outside into the car park; my wife and I followed, bemused. We attempted to pay, but being literally thrown out, precluded that.
This whole exchange was in our opinion absolutely unacceptable behaviour from this individual, a totally unprovoked and extremely rude and aggressive response to a polite comment, literally half a dozen words. Had we been in his shoes, we would have been apologizing to the guests, particularly regarding the lack of up to date safety checks on the hairdryer, which could have resulted in a serious accident
At 75 years old and a company director I have travelled extensively but I’ve never experienced anything as bizarre as this person’s behaviour before. He could have stepped straight out of a well-known television sitcom.

What can I say the food is excellent and with generous portions. Staff are friendly and polite, Mrs Hunter which I was given the honour of calling Liz. Is an amazing Lady and will possibly never retire from the place. Jason an excellent chef and there to make your stay as pleasant as it can be. Beer garden and bar were fantastic to sit out in the sun and the bar to cool down. Rachel what can you say excellent character with locals and guests, again nothing is to much bother and will go out her way to make sure your stay it excellent. The young barman sorry didn't get your name was polite and all that goes with a good member of staff. A couple commented on the food and he replied could you pop on a comment on trip advisor and that's why I am.
Thank you for a great stay and hope to see you soon Peter.
5 stars all the way

Wonderful little hotel. Very friendly staff. Restaurant and pub served fantastic food and drinks. Much appreciated divergence from usual hotel experience while traveling on business. Location was located only a few blocks from the seaside with plenty of must see destinations only a short walk away.

Went here with big groups of friends and family to watch to Ireland rugby match and then the Scotland game. We where sat in the corner and had planned to stay here all night but after a few rather cheeky and negative comments from the bar women about our seating arrangements we decided to move onto another venue. Rather annoyed as we tended to spend the evening here and enjoy both games.

Stayed at this hotel and had great first night only to be treated to a shambles of breakfast, chef should be ashamed of himself, so I sat down at the table and my order was taken only to witness the waitress take the order in to the kitchen and be greeted by the chef shouting and swearing at her to the point where this young lady left the hotel in tears, it was absolutely disgusting treatment of staff, he should be ashamed of the treatment towards this waitress, very disappointing

Responded 11 Aug 2015
Thank you for joining trip advisor and making us your first posting. out of over 125 responses 88% of postings have rated us either Excellent or Very Good . Both members of staff have been addressed regarding this incident which has resulted due to basic breakfast procedure which was not carried out . You stayed a further 2 days and unfortunately did not take the opportunity to air any issues. Had you done this you would have received and understood the whole issue. Its good to communicate face to face.Hope to see you again . Thank you for posting
