After a very long drive from Yorkshire the lovely lady that is Margaret recommended the ship at the Irvine harbour and even took us there....the words on Margarets badge are perfect as she does go the extra mile to make sure her guests are well catered for............told us about the festival happening the weekend we arrived, the mary mass, it was great fun, the locals very friendly and welcoming ... great time had ..
very central to access burns country,isle of arron, and William Wallace ect and many other castles and attractions of the west country

After a long and tiring journey and having telephoned the hotel to explain we would be arriving late (the instruction was no later than 11.30pm and we arrived at 11.15pm.) We had to suffer a tirade of abuse. We were then locked out of the 'hotel' with our bags inside. We were treated like criminals as she shouted to the 'CCTV camera' to watch us in case we stole valuable tools from other guests cars!! In astounded disbelief, we made a hasty retreat and found another hotel down the road 'The Menzies' where we were welcomed accordingly and treated as a customer should be. I'd advise all to spend their money elsewhere.

When you checked in with your bags, no mention was made of the 2 DOGS in your car. We have a policy " NO PETS ALLOWED" - our CCTV showed you attempting to bring them into the property.

The tirade of abuse I received was totally unacceptable and that was why you were asked to leave.

My wife and I arrived for an anniversary break to explore the east coast of Scotland. The prior reviews are correct. Margaret, our host, could not have been more attentive to our needs. She made reservations at a restaurant which held our table until we could make the late arrival. Upon our return after eating, Margaret had a bottle of wine and 2 glasses awaitng us. The next day, she gave us travel tips and some interesting information on the nearby abbey in Kilwinning.

We stayed in the family room which had its own private entrance. The rooms were as large as a small flat, complete with full size couch, 2 reclining chairs, gas fireplace and very large screen tv. Tall windows with blackout curtains overlooked the yard. The bedroom was in a separate room with its own tv. The spotless ensuite bath was adjacent. Full Scottish breakfast awaited us each morning. Note, it is quiet and you might oversleep!

The internet is a bit spotty and you might not have a signal in your room, but Margaret has a spot in the breakfast area where it works just fine. As noted, no credit card so come prepared with acceptable payment.

We will be back. The personal attention of the owner, Margaret, makes all the difference.

Room Tip: Family room is the size of a small flat and has its own, private entrance.

We booked 3 rooms for 7 people and we arrived at 21h... Margaret was waiting for us and she was very kind and effective. She even reserved a table for dinner at the Ship Inn at Irvine. Rooms and facilities are excellent, its not expensive although you cannot pay by credit card.

The location of this lodge was perfect for we needed. The price fit too.
In the room the owner, Margaret had made a booklet of the local area. She also told us about nearby restaurants and pubs.
I loved the fact the curtains blocked any light in the evening was fab as sleep was necessary for this trip.
Margaret is genuinely sincere about making sure her guests have a good stay.
If you are looking for the "chain hotel" this might not be the one...however if I do recommend giving this one a go. Not many hotel managers give you a big hug at the end of your stay!

We chose this location to stay as we were leaving early the next morning for the ferry to The Isle of Arran. This accommodation was very good, a very good and clean room with a very comfortable bed. Our host could not have been more helpful or done enough for us. Great directions to wherever we wanted to go including a recommendation for a fantastic pub meal close by. No hesitation in recommending this accommodation.

Room Tip: We were given a choice of rooms and all looked great and clean.

There is a new road and some development, so your sat nav may not work correctly. Once we found it, Margaret was waiting at the door. She is a wealth of information about the area and even provided directions to a great restaurant. The building is old, but our room was very large, very clean, and extremely comfortable. The walls are so thick that you cannot hear any traffic or noise from the outside. Breakfast was great. I highly recommend Nethermains Lodge.
