“Good night away”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

Overall my hubby and I had a great night away (we have 4 kids, any night away is great!) We were on a DBB voucher purchased several months ago.
Thought it strange that our dinner allowance was either 2 courses from a set meal @ £11.95 but would only deduct £10 from the main menu.
The assistant manager did however deduct the £11.95 (x2) after our waiter said it was unfair!

But do you now what? The food was fab, staff friendly, great atmosphere. Really enjoyed it and hope to be back soon.

Pros; Great food, friendly staff, good location, fresh contemporary decor
Cons; No receptionist, uncomfortable beds, nasty pillows, inconsistent wi-fi

In need of an overnight stay in the area, really glad I stayed here, Good range of food and at a price which will not burn a hole in your pocket: big beds and great nights sleep. Will stay here on next trip.

Booked through Hotel Connexions. Looked at the Old loans Inn website but the rooms are more spacious than they appear on line. Quality of fittings throughout (and outside the hotel) are excellent and superior to many better know hotel brands. Connectivity panel beside TV is best I've seen anywhere..

Dinner in the restaurant was excellent .Do hope that management realise the asset they have in Neil. The Canadian "can do" approach rather than usual "can't do" to a request makes a big difference to customer satisfaction.

Room Tip: Rooms to rear on reception floor level probably best

Nice Hotel but quality of beds very poor. Even a complaint led to no active response.It is located in a very quiet area and a vehicle is required to get to and from it to other places. Great pity the standard of the actual beds are so poor.

Room Tip: Rooms are fine generally as is Restaurant

Stayed for a family wedding which was in a hotel near by but their rooms were twice as much. Second time I've stayed here and it really is one of my favourite hotels. The rooms are great, contemporary feel and spacious. The bar diner is very welcoming and it leads on to a cracking beer garden with loads of rattan furniture. And a nice balcony area where our room was. The food (breakfast) was first class and the staff all very friendly. Drinks prices on the dear side but we will definitely be back for another stay before Christmas.

We had an excellent stay at the Old Loans Inn in mid June on our way to visit to Scotland's iconic western isles. Our room (111) was modern, spacious, spotlessly clean and finished in attractive pastel toning purples. The HD TV and wi fi worked extremely well and we took advantage of the room tea and coffee making facilities, biscuits and the complimentary bottles of water. The bathroom was tastefully decorated and there was piping hot water in the splendid shower. The bed was large and very comfortable. The room faced the main road but we were not disturbed by traffic and had a really good night's sleep.
We had a bar meal in the evening - the food was good and the setting was relaxing. Breakfast, in the same way was well presented and substantial. Staff were friendly and helpful and delivered high standards of service.
The hotel is located in a tranquil village and we took an interesting walk around it in the evening. The Old Loans is an ideal resting point - about 15 miles from the Arran ferry at Adrossan. We also recognise the appeal of the hotel for golfing fans visiting Troon. The car park is of a good size with numerous spaces so there was no need for road parking.
We thought the hotel stay to be good value for money (£75 for the room and breakfast for 2) and would recommend it without reservation to family and friends.
