A real gem of a hotel, right on the beach front. The staff are amazing and really offer service. Would recommend this hotel to anyone. Rooms are well appointed and clean. There is a lovely bar and restaurant here . Parking is great and free. Food looks good and tastes good.

Welcoming and professional staff, particularly the young woman serving in the bar. Excellent food, presented with evident pride. I was especially impressed with their gluten free menu. They catered for my dietary needs in a thoughtful and knowledgable way. 10/10.

I stayed here for 3 nights in February, booked at the very last minute and got a good rate from the hotel. We where given a room to the rear of the hotel, which was large and with a very high ceiling. Room was very clean and had a rather large flat screen TV. Bathroom was very small but was more than adequate. Walk in shower, hand basin and toilet. All the staff where very friendly and helpful. We used the restaurant each evening and the menu was good lots of choice and reasonably priced. Wednesday evening was a steak and bottle of wine for two people £32. Meals where good nicely presented. The Friday was valentines night and the place was very busy. Meal presentation was a little different but still nice. Breakfast was good and again the cooked food was well presented. Wed, Thursday toast and coffee where brought by the waitress. There was a help your self buffet for fruit juice cereals etc. On the Saturday morning almost the same but you had to make your own toast at the buffet area and that lead to queuing. There isn't a lot of car parking spots within the hotel car park and no disabled bays at all. But across the road there is a council run free car park. Watch out for the large pot holes and during the week fills up quickly. If I was ever in need of a hotel in Ayr again I would use the horizon again.
