My wife and I were on our way to Arran and needed to stay somewhere in Ayrshire the evening before the ferry, and after much trawling, we decided on the Enterkine. We enjoy country hotels, and the description did not disappoint.
The long tree lined drive was lovely, and ended with the roundabout infront of reception. First impressions as always, are a good indicator as to what will follow. The gardens are well maintained, grass properly edged, and few weeds noticeable. Even though the weather was filthy, the gardens impressed.
Reception was proffessional and efficient, and we changed rooms, because of an extracion noise, and were given the Enterkine suite which is stunning. It has the biggest balcony of any room in which I've stayed, and only the awful weather prevented us enjoying what must be imposing panoramic views. My dog, as ever, was made very welcome, but still £10 00 a night charge, which aggravates.
We did not dine, but are aware that a michelin starred chef was cooking that evening. Only four couples were in evidence and two couples dined...not surprising...it was Sunday.
The dining room and lounge are beautifully welcoming and relaxing, and my wife and I enjoyed a drink before retiring. My only complaint was that prices for drinks are not displayed...I do like to know before purchase.
Breakfast was well presented with good service, and a good range of choice, in an immaculate setting, and my wife and I would most certainly visit again.
Dog also enjoyed running through soaking and muddy storm drains, in rain storm.
Did I mention dog charges?...No, won't spoil a good review...
