4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2013

Stayed in family room on first floor which is a double room with adjoining twin room. Great value. Super view of harbour. Liked being able to come and go without passing via a reception. Good size tv in both rooms. Rooms cleaned daily.
Bad points: toilet small & inefficient plumbing, although shower worked well.

Would definitely stay again.

Stopped here on a business trip. As such, I tend to arrive, drop my stuff and head out for the evening. The room was nice and clean and it's obviously not long been converted. The disadvantage of stud walls are that they don't hold the heat too well (evident in the bathroom) and noise can be heard. With respectful guests like those sharing the place with me, this wasn't a problem. That said, the room itself was warm and cosy and I had a good night sleep. What more can you ask for for £35?
I was a bit surprised not to see a reception but a later chat highlighted that it was in a building not far away (that was more an oversight on my behalf) but they came to collect my payment so I wasn't put out.
The location is great, overlooking a peaceful harbour with plenty of nice places to walk nearby. I'd definitely recommend the nearby Ship Inn as well!

Room Tip: Perhaps ask for a room upstairs, if possible.

Having won free tickets to Arran, I tried to find a cheap hotel on the island, a task that turned out to be impossible on the day of travel. I looked online for hotels in the Ardrossan area and this hotel came up as the cheapest within so many mile radius. I phoned the owner to check the room was for 2 since the £39 price tag was so low and after explaining the situation Andy said he would give me the room for £30! When we arrived it was still being cleaned but they gave us the key to come back later. We were given an en suite family room, two bedrooms, one double bed and 2 singles We had 2 TVs, fridge, microwave and lots of clean towels. We had binoculars to look out to sea too. Wouldve loved to stay longer and hire the bikes to cycle about.

I told a friend who is getting married in the area in a few months and she is going to book the hotel for her guests. Very happy customers.

Room Tip: Go en suite, not near the door. Family room was brilliant.

I was working in the area and had not booked a hotel. Found this place whilst passing. Saw the price and, to be honest, didn't have high expectations! However, surprisingly very good. Well equipped rooms with great view! The Ship Inn (which was recommended) was excellent.

6 of us stayed here in 3 rooms on 2 Oct 12 the night before flights out of Prestwick. All the rooms were immaculately presented and clean with tv's, microwaves and fridges. In a very quiet area next to an excellent pub and no parking problems. There was a mix up with one room on arrival, but a quick phone call to the owners had it sorted in a few minutes. Originally I thought the bed was a little tired and lumpy, but on reflection, I had a great nights sleep, so just not what I was used to. This is definately one I will keep on my list for this area. Superb value for money.
Tip, room 6 is unusual, quirky...an unexpected but amusing walk to the toilet!!

Room Tip: Room 6 has a talking point when you discover the bathroom. Nice but rather weird.

Stayed here for two nights and thought it was fine for the price. Our room was right next to the door so did hear the door banging all the time.

The bathroom was fine but could be doing with a blind or curtain on the window as we were ground floor we just put a towel over it. We did have a good time as the pubs and art gallery cafe are very close. The magnum centre is 2 minutes away for the kids to go swimming or a soft play area for the younger kids the ice rink is now closed to our disappointment as that is what we wanted to do. The owners are really friendly i phoned before going and got great advice.

Room Tip: Not next to front door

you get what you pay for £35 bed, toilet, shower with added extras of fridge, microwave and big telly. Plumbing could do with being tuned in a bit though cause everytime you flushed the pan or turned a tap the whole hotel shook! However, plesant enough stay right next to harbour, ideal for quick stay sightseaing and boat trips! Wasn't impressed with stones getting thrown at our window though from some lager louts that forgot their pass code but that wasn't the hotels fault. Basic cheap hotel, okay!

Room Tip: cheap basic rooms, ask for a double though if you are in a couple as I think most rooms could be twi...
