My husband and I have just spent 3 nights here with our 6 month old puppy. We were made to feel welcome the moment we arrived. The 1st room they allocated to us was a long way from the entrance and we queried whether we could have one nearer to an exit incase we needed to get the puppy out...

They really don't mind dogs! And you're right on the seafront in Ayr, with a fabulous beach for stick-throwing etc. You can even eat in the lobby with a dog in attendance (not in dining room or bar). Good, basic food, cheerful service, and it's cheap, modern and comfortable. Room was a wee bit small.

We were greeted by very friendly and helpful reception staff. The public areas benefited from modern furnishings, decoration and lovely views. The restaurant staff were very pleasant and friendly. The room was clean but sadly the bathroom needed updating - broken shower fitment and cracked sink. The bed and pillows were extremely uncomfortable. There was parking available but unfortunately it...
