Well I guess the change is not a surprise, my last visit was I think around 1972! Hotel looks good from the outside, plenty of parking when we arrived. Busy wedding party people in the reception area when we arrived, but quickly checked in by very friendly staff. We had suite 133. If you want a great view, dont go for this room. Ground floor facing towards the car park so all you can see is a bank of very pretty heather witha few wild birds hopping in and out. Very comfortable room though a few areas where some care needed a bit. Beautiful meal in the evening in the orangery; with some drinks before in the bar. Bar is also where breakfast is served. Bar can get a bit busy and a bit noisy so dont expect to much quiet chatting. Meals also served in the bar - it was suggested by family I should try one of the bars signature dishes - chicken, haggis and peper-corn sauce pizza. Lovely thin crust base, and lots and lots of pepper flavour. It wasnt too bad, but I suspect I wouldnt order again; but great if you really like pepper!

Breakfast was very good. Huge pot of tea, hot food served on very hot plates, lovely selection of cold buffet items, good choice of hot items prepared to order. Even the toasting machine was setup right! Nice touches like a caraff of orange juice on the table, and a small easter egg under each up-turned tea cup this morning (easter sunday)

Swimming pool is good. The sauna and steam rooms are a bit small, but fine.

Very friendly staff, with invariably and answer of "no problem" when you ask for anything.

Place is obviously very popular for wedding events, several going on across the two days of our visit.

And yes, changed out of all recognition since my previous visit, and all for the better as far as I can recall.

Hi, many thanks for taking the time to write a Trip Advisor review about your recent (but long overdue return) to the hotel! Indeed the hotel has seen significant changes over the decades and we are delighted to hear you loved the new refurbished areas we have made in recent years. We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay and loved the on-site restaurants and facilities, it is very nice to hear that you enjoyed the nice little touches our team added to the breakfast service over the Easter festivities, the team are a real asset to the hotel and it is lovely to hear your positive comments about the level of professional and efficient service they deliver. We would love to see you back at the hotel in the future and hopefully not as long a wait before you return. Many thanks again.

Hotel was clean, nice rooms with great views over to Arran. Good leisure facilities and very nice bar with great food. Staff were all very friendly and efficient. Very close to the beech which was great for a walk after dinner.

Booked a sea view Arran junior suite for an overnight birthday treat using an Itison voucher received as a Christmas present.
Reception staff were very attentive and during check in I happened to mention that it was my birthday. This resulted in a plate if gigantic chocolate dipped strawberries being delivered to our suite. A terrific personal touch.
The suite, apart from having amazing views, was spacious and well decorated and I must say that, having stayed in a number of 4 and 5 star hotels, the firm mattress gave me the best sleep I've ever had in an hotel.
Room facilities were excellent with tea making facilities, bottled water, fridge and safe.
The menu in the Orangery restaurant was extensive and the food was delicious and well presented by attentive, but not overbearing staff. The breakfast selection was really good with a varied continental buffet as well as cooked to order breakfast.
Can't say anything bad about this family run hotel. Great accommodation, good food and friendly, helpful staff. Will definitely be paying another visit.

We were recommended this hotel by a friend and weren’t disappointed. We upgraded our room and it was very spacious and comfortable with a bath and shower. All staff were friendly and keen to help. We used the spa facilities and they were equally lovely with nice clean changing rooms and a lovely heated pool that wasn’t too busy while we were there. We also ate in the Orangery one evening and the meal was delicious and the service excellent. The breakfast was very nice, offering a buffet style continental option as well as ordering a cooked breakfast of your choice. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a break on the west coast.
