Visited Sunday 04th for an overnight stay with my husband. Small car park but council car park 2 mins away. Welcomed by lovely young man on reception who checked our temperature on our wrists and explained where everything was and asked if we wanted to book dinner. I had requested a sea view room and was given room 18 which overlooks the car park but has a lovely sea view. I would say the toilet was a bit of a squeeze if you had a bit of a disability but was fine for us. Room was spotless. We ate out but I met an old friend there who stays often at the hotel and she was raving about the meals as I had read on trip advisor. Literally 5 mins away from the shopping centre and right on the seafront perfect. Breakfast was delicious served to us at the table. I would definitely recommend the hotel and I have no doubt we will visit again.

A third visit to this hotel and again I would recommend it with its ideal location right on the shore looking across to Arran with gorgeous sunsets and sunrises. It’s an ideal base from which to explore Ayrshire and beyond with a trip to Mull of Galloway Lighthouse a must. The staff are really nice and attentive and the breakfasts and evening meals are delicious and well presented in a nice welcoming dining area. I will definitely return in the future.

We've stayed at the Horizon before but this was our 1st time since covid. We've had a lovely stay. The staff were great, the hotel comfortable as usual and the food delicious. We were very happy with the way the hotel was organised to cope with covid , temperature checked on arrival, sanitizing stations where necessary and replenishing of the room necessities, all were very satisfactory. The room was spotless on arrival and we had a very comfortable, relaxing stay, thank you so much.

We used Horizon as a stop off as we travelled north. Great value all round & super dog friendly. We had room 10 which had a french window, great for dog bits. Room & hotel we’re brilliantly clean with staff Covid aware at all times. The quality of the menu was excellent. We weren’t staying in the area but would recommend for our booking. Thank you for a good night’s stay.

Let down at the last minute by another booking we found this gem of a hotel and so glad we did! Covid measures were clear and comprehensive. Food was great. Location right on the sea front. What sets this hotel apart from the rest is the staff! So friendly and helpful - even with masks their personalities shined through. Special mention to Katie who waited on our table during our stay!
