We stumbled on this hotel a couple of years ago, it is just under 50 miles from our home. Far enough to feel that we are away from home but close enough to be able to enjoy the luxury of this gem of a hotel without having to spend all day getting there. Giving us more time to relax and we have been able to return several times and it is now our location of choice for a short getaway.
This time it was a late “celebration” of my wife’s birthday and we received another warm welcome that seems to come so naturally from all the staff. The warm welcome may have been helped as this must have been one of the hottest days this summer on the west coast of Scotland. So much so that we ventured from the hotel across the Low Green, which has history dating back to the 14th century, towards the beach which is a gentle stroll across this expanse of grassland and is a natural attribute adjacent to the hotel to enjoy. There was a gentle cooling breeze coming off the sea and the signs posted at the beach indicate the highest quality of water standard by SEPA.
The hotel is so well appointed on the edge of such a natural beauty spot and the view across the River Clyde to Arran is one to be seen especially if you are lucky enough to see a sunset.
Refreshed we returned to our room to change for dinner. Dinner was again excellent the standard of the chef never seems to falter and from listening to comments from fellow diners everyone appeared to agree. We then retired to the terrace to enjoy what was left of our wine and again enjoy the surroundings of the hotel.
This being “the height of summer” and the beautiful weather, daylight seemed to go on until the “wee small hours”. So one feature of the room which was welcome was total blackout curtains. The room was instantly turned into darkness which induced an ambiance which encouraged sleep, or was that the wine.
Waking for breakfast was a gentle experience until we opened the curtains, it was going to be another lovely sunny day. You could have started the day with a dip in the pool, we settled for another stroll on the Low Green followed by a full Scottish breakfast and the day had begun.
Another faultless stay at this gem of a hotel. Looking forward to returning.
