A very good hotel with comfortable rooms with spacious bathrooms. The swimming pool and fitness centre are a great advantage for patrons to use at no extra cost. The roles with a sea view are by far at an advantage as to outlook. The view across the sea to Arran is extraordinary. There is a coastal path starting just adjacent to the hotel for those who love a good exhilarating walk. The staff are friendly and keen to be of service. The good in the Orangery is excellent. I cannot vouch for the bar food as I did not eat there hut the amount of customers would indicate its pretty good. My only criticisms are the apparent lack of a bar person. It appeared to be that the waiting staff served themselves which resulted in a slower than acceptable service. The ambience in the bar is also affected by the failure to turn on the lighting above the central bar which made it seem rather cold and out if use. Despite the aforementioned I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel.

Situated in a really nice area reminds me of home. The hotel is beautifully presented and has a lot of option from within. Spar treatment was very nice 5* Gym is good and is definitely cardio focused but does have strength training areas 4* Rooms are very nice and the bathrooms are massive with options to shower or bathe 4.5* Service was very good! Although the staff could talk a bit more to you, just to make you seem a bit more welcomed. though that’s an easy task to learn 4* Food was really nice from the à la Cartier menu, to the bar menu & not forgetting the breakfast! You have lots to choose from 5* Afternoon tea was really nice and also presented in a photogenic way 5* Very nice hotel and served us a perfect get away even though the drive was 7-8hrs I’d still come back! Great place to base yourself while traveling to Glasgow- Edinburgh- and other places too. Thank you!
