My wife and I had a wedding to attend in Newcastle and we chose to begin it here in mid-March on the recommendation of a friend I hadn't seen in 15 years. Peter was spot on. We spent three wonderful nights here in Ayr. The hotel staff was more than helpful in every conceivable way. Our room was spacious, clean and most comfortable. We traveled by train (15 minute walk into town) each day we were in town to tour Glasgow and then Sterling. The short walk to the beach,while cold and windy was nice none- the-less. Dinners and the morning breakfasts were all great. Can't wait to come back... So much still to see.

Room Tip: The executive room if available is worth the extra expense.

Being local this is a venue we visit often and it has never disappointed us in 7 years. All the staff are well trained and are more than competent. Owners friendly and welcoming every time. Early supper meals offer great prices but the proton size doesn't suffer unlike other restaurants early evening deals. Overall the food and service are great.

We stayed here for 3 nights in March. Both room and restaurant were good and, I thought, reasonably priced. We found the staff friendly and efficient. For example, they remembered that we had ordered a gluten free meal in the restaurant in the evening and then produced a gluten free roll for breakfast the next morning without being asked. Highly recommended.

Had a lovely Sunday lunch - extensive menu choice and food all to an excellent standard. The staff couldn't have been nicer very friendly and helpful and willing to accommodate the small menu changes we requested.can highly recommend the Chestnuts as a great ,relaxed place to enjoy a meal with family and friends.

I have been to the hotel twice but didnt get the time to post my review as the saying is, its never too late to do the right thing. I must admit the cleanliness of the rooms are matched with high standards of the hotel industry. Location is great its hardly 3 mins walk to the beach. Their restaurant serves gourmet meal, staff is so helpful and completes your experience with a cherry on top. The hotel is run my Mrs. and Mr. Steel they really are great people do chat (if you get time) with Mr. Steel if you love rugby he the the right man with all details of sport. And now something i didnt Like which is truly Nothing at all they know what they are doing and how to provide the best experience to their guests.

Would surely visit very soon....keep up the good work

Room Tip: Corner suites have wonderful view.

I have visited this establishment twice recently. On the first occasion it was for an early bird dinner within the bar casual dining area which was excellent. My partner had haggis which she loved and I had macaroni cheese which was really cheesy and old fashioned like my mum used to make. The bar is welcoming and comfortable and there is a coal fire which gives a nice feel to the place. On the second occasion we popped in on a rainy Sunday afternoon for a scone and a cafe latte and were sadly disappointed. The coffees are nice but the scones were a disappointment being extremely small and tasteless. Also the jam is of the kind which is in a plastic foil topped container and was of low quality. A shame really because the hotel is way better than that.
