Stayed here for one night before starting the John O’Groats to Land’s end route by bicycle. A hotel that caters for large groups of touring tourists and those using the nearby airport in Prestwick.
Comfortable room that is very typical of large hotels.
Staff friendly, but more than one of them had the tendency to interrupt you and cut you off in mid-sentence to answer your question. Whether this is because the majority of guests are older, I do not know, but it soon became extremely annoying. They mean well, but this is rude.
The shower rail in the first room I was given had fallen down. I was given another room next door.
Decor caught somewhere between the late 1980s and 1990s.
Very impersonal bar area and lounge.
Restaurant. I ordered a club sandwich, hardly a meal which takes enormous amounts of preparation. After forty minutes I alerted the bar staff that it had not arrived. After another ten minutes, I alerted the duty manager. He returned, claiming that the bar staff had noticed the delay all by themselves (not true) and that I would get my meal soon. No compensation in terms of a discount of complementary drink was offered. I notice there are similar comments on other reports on Tripadvisor regarding this hotel, so be careful.
I stayed here because the trip I was doing involved booking on the day in the early evening. I would advise avoiding this large, impersonal hotel and finding somewhere smaller with more character and a better restaurant.
