Stayed here for one night from London on Friday, 13th of January on the way to view a boat for sale in beautiful nearby Largs the following morning. If you stay at this hotel try to visit Largs and visit the quite outstanding and modestly self-proclaimed "world famous" Italian cafe and ice crem parlour extraordinaire right on the waterfront with amazing views. But I digress.
Other reviews of this hotel on TripAdvisor were very good indeed so I was confident to take up their offer of a very good special 'quiet season' offer for the night.
Directions - very easy to find using the hotel address in both TomTom and Co-Pilot satnavs and even a signpost to the turning off the main road - well done! Always an important point for me.
The room is of a very high standard indeed - clean, lovely soft furnishings, modern with an upmarket quality feel.
The TV was a nice modern flatscreen Samsung with HDMI socket so you can connect your laptop (remember to bring an HDMI cable!) and watch saved iPlayer programs, films etc through the TV. Note: wi-fi is chargeable - didn't ask the price - just used mobile hotspot on the smartphone and there is an OK T-mobile signal here for fair speeds.
Convenient and large car park right in front of the hotel. The young lady on reception was very efficient and sweet with a lovely Scottish accent.
Dinner in the hotel was first class offering an excellent three course dinner option for £19.95. My choice of a haddock main course was quite the best tasting example I have ever experienced. My choice of sticky toffee pudding dessert was also outstanding. Very helpful dining staff who seem reticent to offer the opportunity to leave a well-deserved gratuity - I only remembered and corrected my oversight the following morning - mea culpa!
