I stay in the area every month or so and I'm always disappointed if the Hydro is full. The rooms are OK, nothing wrong with them, but I've never enjoyed a single dish I've been served here. There is a really nice little Indian down the road in Ardrossan.

Spent a night visiting family. Check was easy and the room, well appointed, a comfortable bed, largish TV, and a delight with views over the Clyde to Arran. We had a light lunch and breakfast, both served by friendly staff in a pleasantly decorated dining room. The lounge had a warming fire and access to a covered deck (blankets supplied...

The welcoming staff and the lovely log fire smell warmed us on a cold but sunny day! The food was delicious and very good value! We came on a Friday when there was 25% Off, we've now registered for the loyalty card and look forward to coming again or will maybe try one of the sister hotels!

Our Wedding Day at this stunning venue was absolutely perfect. The location, beach setting, rooms, food, drink and service were 1st class. Everything ran like clockwork. Thank you to all of the Waterside Team especially to Ryan who helped make this the most memorable day for us. We cannot recommend this beautiful, seaside venue enough :) Clare & Craig 30.10.16

Here for a birthday getaway. Was happy with the welcome. Room size was great, view unbelievable, even on a cold wet rainy November night. Room had a great spa bath which was delightful. Makes up for lack of swimming pool. Evening meal was fantastic, great range of food available. Decor was the most beautiful nautical theme which was evident throughout...

Room 320 is adjacent to a room containing the extractor unit for the hotel kitchen. For most of the day and evening it emits a fairly loud noise and, when the kitchen closes, a residual noise like a loud bathroom fan. When we were assigned this room at £99/night B & B we quickly requested a change. The room we...
