Wanted an overnight stay in Ayr and this was one of the cheapest hotels so wasn't really expecting too much. What a pleasant surprise. Our room was a reasonable size and the bed was comfy. The staff are lovely and really make you feel welcome. We paid extra to have breakfast

This is a wonderful hotel to stay at. It is a short walk from the beach and not far from the town centre. I used it as a base for my Photography, but it is not to far from the racecourse for when there is racing on. There are also lots of Golf courses in the Ayr area. The staff

My first impressions were that the place was lovely but when you look twice you can see it's not had much spent on it in some time. it's the small details like the toilet seat which was stained all around the inside (see photos) the bad crack in the shower tray, it discoloured

Response from AyrLindaE, Owner at The Arrandale Hotel
Responded 31 Oct 2018
Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel Sarah, despite so many inaccuracies, it still hurts to get two such bad ones from the same couple but, it came as no surprise whatsoever that you were enlisted to add weight to your partner Kate’s earlier review . The main issue .... the bed? We have two bed frames like these in the hotel, your total exaggeration of “unless you are 5 ft nothing” being an absolute nonsense BUT if you had advised that one of the ladies was 6 foot 5 “ we would have moved you . Most guests when extra tall do mention this when booking . The whole “dinner “ thing was complete & total fabrication and when I asked your partner to show me where you found the info, mysteriously it had disappeared. Couple of last facts ... cleanliness was a big deal ? and you moved to another hotel with a lower cleanliness record than us . Also I was advised to record as a no show, so you wouldn’t be charged. We start the refurb to the room you were in on Monday ( normally happens every couple of years)!, it was scheduled to begin 4 weeks ago but due to a very busy October it didn’t happen, and thank goodness for that ! In my world it’s fact and proven track record over 12 years that matter, not backlash from someone who disliked me/us intensely. Best wishes and good luck Sarah, you were a nice guest and thank you for coming to see us . Linda
