Reviewed 21 July 2014

Over the years we must stayed in over 24 hotels in Scotland . The Willowbank we believe is the best. Paul and the staff are excellent hosts providing all that is necessary for an enjoyable stay.the rooms are immaculate,clean and comfortable;the food superb and the hotel location is ideal for all the local amenities, Special thanks to Wilma for the strawberries and we look forward to seeing you when we return in December.We would have no hesitation in recommending anyone going to the Ayrshire Coast to use this hotel Go on give it a go!!

Arrived as part of a David Urquart Tour. Room clean and comfortable. Only drawback that shower was a "take off" from the taps and not a power shower. Difficult to control temperature. My wife and I are both vegetarians and received good service throughout our stay with tasty alternatives to our main meal. Waiter service for both Breakfast and dinner. Staff happy to provide extra tea/toast if required. Would happily stay again.

Just back from a five day David Urquhart coach trip to Largs & Ayrshire Coast @ the Willowbank Hotel in Largs. We have been here before and it was as good as we remembered with the fantastic weather making it as good as being abroad. There were 20 in our party. A problem at first was quickly sorted when a ground floor room was made available to one of our ladies who could not manage stairs as no lift is available. The rooms were beautifully kept and the food wholesome and plentiful. The staff were a pleasure to deal with and nothing was too much trouble even though they pretended to grumble at every little request made. Brilliant banter from Paul and sundries!! All the trips were great and Tommy, our driver, went out of his way to be as much help as possible. The local bus service into Largs for those less agile was good and even the taxis were great value. Too much to do in too little time so will be back at a later date.

Room Tip: Please get David Urquhart to check for room suitability as limited single and easy access rooms avai...

myself and my husband have just returned from the Willowbank Hotel Largs Scotland
we were on a 5 day break with David Urquhart coaches.
we had a great time,the trips included were great, and we were very fortunate to arrive into a heat wave.
the rooms were very good, the staff were first class, nothing was too much trouble for them when you asked for something.
Special thank you to Paul the restaurant manager he was the best.
this hotel is a family run business, that's why you got personal service.and the staff have all been there years.

Room Tip: upper floor, the hotel has 33 rooms small flight of stairs. there is only one floor above ground fl...

I am secretary of the Open Door Club and for our annual trip we had booked this hotel for high tea for 38 members. The food was delicious and everyone's was hot, scones and cakes were lovely and there wasn't a single complaint and that is unusual when you have a crowd of pensioners together. The service in the restaurant and bar was very friendly and efficient. So well done to the Willowbank.
