During a recent visit to Ayr with my wife we called in at the Horizon Hotel with a view to having dinner, but after having a drink in the bar/restaurant decided against it. The table we were seated at was next to windows which over looked the nice sea view, however the venetian blinds slats were covered with a thick...

Good Evening I am disappointed to be reading such a review of our restaurant. Firstly as it has been great weather with exceptional sunshine the past three days dust does gather and Venetian blinds do gather dust that is why they are cleaned every morning by our staff, unfortunately we cannot clean them every hour of every day and will...

I was in need of some sea air to help shift the lurgy. I was looking for somewhere to go for one night, to take my dog and breathe in lungfuls of fresh air. I didn't want to leave the hotel, I just wanted to walk my dog, eat my dinner and relax. I spend so much time away on...

Smart front of house. Room basic but comfy and warm. Breakfast good. Staff helpful and polite. Good location close to beach and a few minutes walk to Ayr centre. Overall reasonably priced. Would probably use again.

Good Evening. Many thanks for your review, i am a little disappointed that the challenge 25 policy marred your stay. If you would like to contact me at the hotel i can speak with you directly. The hotel does have a challenge 25 policy in place and without identification the duty manager cannot serve that person.
