Recently my employer held an annual GM at a resort nearby and there was not enough accommodation for everyone to stay over.... so we were put up in this hotel.
The hotel is set in lovely grounds and has some top notch views from the first floor rooms. It is very handy for the village of maidens and walking distance from the Turnberry resort and Golf Courses. Top marks here....
The room we stayed in was an executive twin. All guest rooms are on the the first floor and the room was clean and had recently been renovated to a good standard. My colleague was not so lucky. Her room was a standard double and it was small and very dated. Although the rooms where clean they unfortunately had a bit of a smell... in particular the bathrooms were whiffy.
The main down point of this hotel is that the main business conducted is that of an old folks home/care home. The communal areas are nice, but very old people friendly, and also occupied by the residents. The hotel smells like a care home from the minute you walk in the door and there are a lot of residents shuffling about while you are checking in.
Also, the main doors are locked at 10pm and you need to leave your key at reception and use a "code" to get in the door.
The sleep quality was good but not great. we were woken by the people in the next room having a shower and the walls were pretty thin.
Breakfast was good. No buffet selection or fresh fruit on display. Only Orange juice and few cereals out and everything else was waitress service. cooked breakfast was lovely apart from my poached egg being over cooked and literally hard boiled.
i would never have booked this hotel myself had i read some of the other reviews... but it was booked by a colleague for location. The location is beautiful and the hotel is a lot more affordable than nearby Turnberry Resort.
