As always the premier inn does not disappoint. Well appointed, clean and tidy bedrooms with a great big bed! We stayed for one night before heading home and it was the best sleep we had all trip! Didn't have breakfast though. If back in that area would use again.

Thank you for taking the time to review Premier Inn Ayr A77 Racecourse. I was pleased to read we matched your expectations of Premier Inn. It is wonderful to read that one of our guests had a great night sleep in one of our superb Hypnos beds. A guest can leave no greater compliment than saying they would return to our hotel again. Once again than thank you for the kind review and we look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.

I have just arrived home from a holiday in Scotland and one of the hotels I stayed in was the Premier Inn in Ayr. The room was clean but not as spacious as most Premier Inns and also it did not have a bath just a shower. Having said that, the staff were friendly and helpful and I would not hesitate to stay there again if I was in that vicinity.
If you are dining there Dave one of the restaurant staff was very welcoming and friendly and even remembered your name and what you liked to drink. Highly commended!

Good car park - lots of space and free.

Check in and check out was simple.

My room - clean, simple, comfortable with nothing to fault.
It does the job that it should do - give you a good nights sleep.

Shower room is pleasant, lots of hot water and at a decent pressure.

Good value!

Thank you for taking the time to review Premier Inn Ayr A77 Racecourse. We are very fortunate that we can offer our guests the complimentary use of our 116 car park bays. At Premier Inn we listen to what our guests needs are. Unlike most other hotel chains we have simplified our check in and check out process making it quick and hassle free. This year we have introduced Online check ins, which have proven to be very popular with our guests. I was pleased to read that you found our bedrooms to be clean, simple, and comfortable with nothing to fault. I was particularly pleased to read that you found our hotel to be good value. Once again thank you for taking the time to review our hotel and we look forward to welcoming you back.

Stayed here for 2 nights whilst attending Ayr Racecourse.

As with all Premier Inn accommodation, it was clean with a comfortable bed, no baths in this one but a good shower. Only a short drive to the Racecourse, around £5 in a taxi. It is walkable however due to the heavy rain we decided not to.

We didn't eat in the hotel but we did spend time in the lovely bar area.

The only issue I have is the heat in the rooms, they do provide fans but it was still extremely warm. This did spoil it slightly though and it did disturb my sleep.

We got an excellent deal and I would return if the price was right, albeit I would make sure the window remained open for the duration to cool down the room.

Thank you for taking the time to review Premier Inn Ayr A77 Racecourse. I was delighted to read that you found our bedrooms to be clean with a comfortable Hypnos bed. I was pleased to read you enjoyed refreshment in our relaxing bar area; perhaps you might enjoy a meal in our Thyme Restaurant on your next visit. I have noted your comments with regards to the unusually warm weather recently. We now supply an extra sheet in our bedrooms just in case our short but brilliant Scottish summer causes discomfort. Once again thank you for taking the time to review our hotel and we hope we have the opportunity to welcome you back in the near future.

I stay in Premier Inns regularly for work. This one just doesn't feel as good as the others. The rooms are smaller (especially than the upgraded or new PIs) so it feels a wee bit cramped. That said, it was quiet which is what matters. I did ask for a quiet room when I checked in but to get that you have to phone ahead cos by the time you get there rooms have usually all been allocated. I said to the guy at Reception (as a joke) that if it was noisy I'd let him know - with reference to the Good Night Guarantee but he was very serious and told me that the GN Guarantee doesn't cover noise, only comfort. Couldn't quite work that one out...
Breakfast was fune - freshly cooked to order which delayed it a bit compared with self service- but it was delicious so worth the wait.
Didn't eat in restaurant in the evening so can't comment on that.
So, I didn't give it more stars cos of slightly strange welcome and small room, but other than that fine.

...And we have stayed in a LOT! The staff were incredibly friendly, helpful and welcoming, even printing out our return flight boarding pass for us with no fuss whatsoever. The room was very quiet with excellent soundproofing, an ultra comfortable bed and a great shower - powerful and warm. The room was clean and the car parking good. It was also in a great location with easy access from Ayr and back to Glasgow airport where we flew in. All in all a great choice and we'd like to thank the staff for making it such a pleasant stay.
