The Ugadale Hotel has been successfully renovated to a high standard and is an excellent place to stay for playing at Machrihanish Golf Club and at the Dunes Course. The rooms are very comfortable and well appointed. The cottages are also of a high standard and flexible for families or golfing groups. For our 3 night stay on a dinner...

Machrihanish was always a neat place to visit but to be honest was very short of quality accommodations. NO MORE!

The Ugadale cottages are very well appointed - spacious and very comfortable. There are spectacular views over to Northern Ireland and the local landscape is stunning.

I've just waxed lyrical in a review of Machrihanish Dunes Golf Club - simply the most interesting golf course and the closest to golf as it was 120 years ago! The deal with Dunaverty and Machrihanish Golf Club is a must. Overall an excellent value excursion - a 5 hour 30 minute drive from Newcastle, but worth every single minute...

Myself and five other friends stayed recently here, it was one of the most enjoyable trips we have been on. The hotel and cottage were so lovely, well furnished, very welcoming, had everything you would want for a weekend and the manager and staff just made you feel so welcome they looked after all aspects of the trip very well.
