Lovely hotel in a quiet area, ideal for touring round Ayrshire. Recommended for golfers, loads of great courses nearby ie. Turnberry. Also for touring the Burns country and visiting Culzean Castle. The staff are very friendly, helpful and the breakfast is excellent.

We arrived at the Southfield and the receptionist was on the phone ...for ages....it was welded to her ear, but when we eventually got her attention, she was pleasant enough.

Be aware the photos on internet bear little relation to the present state of the hotel, its scruffy and really poorly maintained, the hallway with what could be an imposing staircase is crammed full of rubbish, broken this and that's. The room was dirty and smelly, carpets were filthy......the bar was like the Marie Celeste

I just could not bring myself to stay, and paid extra to get an earlier ferry home , so I cannot comment on breakfast etc

Room tips: drive past!!

Room Tip: I m not sure that such exists - I only saw one room!

enjoyed a lovely one night stay at this friendly B&B. but my parents have stayed numerous times. they do a great breakfast - a full Scottish of course!
the bedroom had all i needed, i was up in an attic room so just had to watch my head if i got up out of bed during the night.
great location only a short walk to the harbour/beach.

We almost changed our mind and reneged on our booking at this hotel during the 30 minutes we had to wait for someone to arrive at reception to book us in.

The exterior of the hotel could be lovely. But it is not. This tired old building is in clear need of some TLC. There was some rubbish and cigarette butts strewn across the front yard and the broken garden furniture didn't seem to auger well for our stay here.

Inside, the reception area was a serious turn-off. Scuffed walls and stained upholstery were not the welcome we expected.

So it was with some surprise that we found our ensuite room to be quite nice. Clean and spacious, it was a definite step up from the rest of the hotel. Fluffy towels and a lovely hot shower went some way to smooth over our disappointed.

Spent a night at the Southfield and was disappointed with the cleanliness of the bedroom. The room was an average size, the bed was very comfortable, the bathroom was spotless, and the full Scottish Breakfast was the best I've had in a long time. The staff were very helpful, but the room had not been cleaned properly in weeks.
If only time had been spent cleaning the room and the stairs, it would have been a good stay.
Hope this review makes the owners think about the cleanliness side of the business.

A pleasant enough experience. It seems to get more and more difficult to find anywhere in Girvan at short notice. After trying a few which were fully booked I ended up at the Southfield. Pleasant room, good price, very good breakfast and pleasant, helpful staff.
