“BEST EVER”
Reviewed 1 May 2013

6 of us stayed there recently as we were going to a wedding in a different hotel. we were so glad we picked this hotel. From start to finish it was great. So friendly, couldnt do enough for us. Rooms bright big and sunny. Food excellant. Couldnt say enough good things about it. From the owners to the cleaners they were all fab. 3 mins from beach and golf course. 15 mins walk to centre of town. Ideal for rest and relaxation. Would highly reccommend it.

Room Tip: double room we had was sunny big and quiet eventhough it was just off road. My mum and sister had tw...

Our party of eight stayed here at the start of the "Lochs and Glens" cycle route. It was so comfortable and the food and beer of such a high standard that we were quite reluctant in the morning to set off! The rooms are large and well equipped, and the staff most helpful and attentive. The food was way above our expectations, and it was good to have a decent local real ale on draught. Best of all, this hotel is astonishingly good value.

Just returned after a two night stay with the family. We turned up at the door having been let down by the standard of another hotel in Ayr and were shown to a family room which was immaculately clean, warm and comfortable. The staff and owners were all very friendly and bent over backwards to assist. The food was excellent and the bar and restaurant had a lovely atmosphere. Its only a short five minute walk to the seafront and Belleisle Park is across the road which is great for the kids to kick a ball around in. I would have no qualms about recommending this hotel to anyone, can't wait to return.

We were down in Ayr for an evening wedding reception at a different hotel but decided to stay at The Chestnuts for a wee bit of nostalgia (we stayed there years ago). They had a great offer on (£60.00) 2 people B & B. We had a bar meal the night we arrived and it was delicious - scampi and chips & haddock mornay. Plus the trio of desserts to share.(£25.00 for two people). The bedroom was beautiful with plenty of tea coffee biscuits available in our room. The staff were lovely - very friendly and efficient...this was a lovely stay, breakfast was great. Can't recommend this place enough...I felt really spoiled.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 6 - it was lovely. View on to the road but it was quiet enough.
