Myself and two friends stayed at the hotel for one night when we were walking on the Ayrshire Coastal Path.
We were interested to see for ourselves what the hotel was like given the mixed reviews but we were impressed. We had a twin room and a single, and both were very comfortable, and very well fitted. We were the only people staying at the hotel at the time, so cannot comment on the thickness of the walls.
The restaurant was excelent, and was very busy as you would expect on a Friday. However, it was well staffed, and we enjoyed a relaxed meal with the table available to us for the whole evening.
Would recommend the hotel and restaurant.More
