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.

Hotel spotless. Food amazing. The staff are really lovely and so helpful and pleasant, from housekeeping, waiting staff, chef, managers and owners they provide a first class service! My cousin struggled with the stairs up to the attic room. The owner pulled out all the stops to move us to room 22 which is out of this world! Will definitely return. Couple of mins walk to town centre, pubs, restaurants and bus station. Right on the sea front. We honestly couldn’t fault it. Thanks to all the staff and owner for a great stay x

Very friendly hotel in a nice location with excellent restaurant. A traditional “non chain” establishment with very pleasant atmosphere and excellent staff. I have stayed twice now and on both occasions enjoyed great service in nice surroundings. Ideal for both business or leisure visits

Was not the best hotel I've ever stayed in. When we arrived at 2.30 , we were advised the room would not be ready till 3pm, which is fair enough, but my idea of a room being ready is it is warm when I walk in ( was not the case here ), and as for the radiator, it did not work during my 3 night stay ( I'm just glad the heated towel rail in the bathroom let a little heat into the bedroom ) Admittedly I did not complain, so I guess I have to take responsibility as well, however they state in.prevíous posts the reason it is 3pm check in is, so the room is ready, but entering a cold room is hardly welcoming. I can understand why some people like this hotel, but I've seen it stayed in it, and won't be back ( my opinion ), but will be a frequent visitor to Ayr in the future !!

We stayed 1 night horizon hotel for girls football awards night in Prestwick. I parked outside in council car park no restrictions as its only Monday to Friday 8-6pm they apply. Nice hotel we stayed room 35 in attic. Room was warm skylight windows with no curtains or blinds but I wanted up early so I could visit local gym. Free breakfast included in price free cereal tea coffee juices etc plus option of full scottish. I had bacon scrambled eggs tomato mushroom and haggis which was one of cleanest freshest breakfasts I've had in hotel , and it was warm not cold which was bonus. 100% would stay again

A wonderful stay, at short notice during family emergency Tracey stepped up and was beyond kind and helpful. Welcoming and warm, fabulous breakfasts, restaurant evening meal was really good, cosy lounge with a gas fire that I wish we had at home! The setting is superb, one stormy evening and next morning dawned crisp and clear, walked with dog on the beach. Their dog-attitude is fabulous, he got sausages for breakfast too. I could not recommend highly enough, the staff were uniformly friendly and helpful.

Lovely wee overnight away from Halloween madness! Room was lovely with nice warm radiator as it was so cold. Booked for donner which is a feat in itself as I suffer from anaphylaxis to Palm oil,Pal Fat and Palm Kernel oil. I was assured at reception they would let the chef know. When we were ordering dinner I asked what I could have that was safe and the chef had already done his homework and told me choices of what I could eat safely...what can I say about food??SUBLIME!! Amazing to be able to eat safely knowing I'm not going to be in back of an ambulance in 10 mins!! This man is an incredible chef and I'll be forever grateful to him for adding that extra touch! Back next Yr so see u then Horizon Hotel

We were a family group of 5 people and our family dog. Celebrating my 70th Birthday. Young family had travelled from England and Ireland to Scotland to celebrate their mothers/aunts 70th birthday. After dinner, As I was taking this photo of my family around 8.30pm a night porter was vacuuming the window area behind my head. Not what you expect to witness while having a "relaxing" drink in the hotel lounge area. It was so difficult for us to have a conversation as we could hardly hear each other. The general manager passed through the lounge area many times while the vacuuming was taking place and obviously thought the actions of the night porter was acceptable.Eventually, my son asked him to stop vacuuming. According to the general managers comments, in my sons review, he asked the porter to stop vacuuming as it was disturbing our dog. The dog was infact sleeping at this time. He is not annoyed by the noise of vacuuming. It was annoying us. When sitting in the hotel lounge you do not expect to witness vacuuming at any time of the evening. As a family, we spent a lot of money in the hotel as we chose to buy all food and drinks from their bar and restuarant and consume them in their public areas. We did not retire to our rooms to party and have drinks not bought in the hotel. Management Customer focus is definitely lacking
