Reviewed 30 July 2014

Stayed in this hotel after a trip abroad and arrived into Prestwick airport. Hotel absolutely gorgeous and spotlessly clean. Arrived late and night porter was very pleasant and nothing a bother to him. Had breakfast in morning and it was first class, again staff very polite and efficient.

Stayed here in March 2014, the hotel is nice & clean & on the sea front but unfortunately I only had a view of a wall, the rooms are compact, breakfast is lovely &they were doing a lovely afternoon tea which was lovely, the staff were all very nice & polite, there was a wedding on upstairs but we didnt hear any noise although the corridor leading to my room is narrow so you hear everyone who uses the lift , I would nt rush back here because of the shape & size of the room.

Room Tip: Ask for a front facing room

Just back from a four night stay at the Horizon for my Dad`s 94th birthday. Have visited this hotel before and it was just I remembered it. Many thanks to all the staff who looked after us during our stay, nothing is any trouble to this great workforce. Not forgetting the Chief and his staff who cooked us the fab food we had during our break. THANKS TO ALL.

Room Tip: Asked for ground floor room because of Dad`s age and this was duly granted.

We have just returned from a 5 night stay at the Horizon Hotel. Again another great time was had by us both. Hotel, food, staff are all fantastic. Room was clean, fresh and very spacious. Food is out of this world...compliments to the chef. All of the staff are very friendly and make you feel welcome. A big thank you to you all and we will be back again soon.

Room Tip: We had room 12 which looks over the beer garden. Lovely room

We attended a party in the function suite of the hotel on Saturday night and the room, food and service were all fine. What let us down was the attic room we stayed in (there were no other double rooms available). I'm only 5ft 4 inches tall and even I had problems not banging my head off the sloping roof. The velux window in the roof did not have a blind therefore as soon as the sun was up (around 4am) the light came streaming in the window and woke us up. The shower room was very tired and verging on the dirty, with rusty soap dispenser, marked wash hand basin, etc.

Room Tip: If you're going to stay at this hotel, DON'T stay in one of the attic rooms!

We consider ourselves very lucky to have found the Horizon Hotel on a recent visit to the area. Arrived in the evening, looking for a place to stay. Every moment, from the first step inside to leaving the next morning, was enjoyable. The view of the water at sunset is breathtaking. Room was clean, beautiful and comfortable. Staff was wonderful, helpful and very friendly. Enjoyed the bar area after the sun went down along with some local residents. Breakfast was served to order with top quality food. This hotel was the highlight of our trip to England and Scotland.

Room Tip: Room 24 has a great view!
