Brilliant – Scott 17th April 

Amazing service, in particular the barman Adam made the experience excellent. He makes a great French martini.

I was at The Waterside Hotel today with my family. We love the decor and the beautiful situation. The food was a high quality and a great variety of choice was offered. The staff were very warm and welcoming and our waitress was helpful throughout. I'd highly recommend that my family and friends visit. I'm already planning my next visit.

Had an amazing time at this hotel. Expectations were just a hotel but they blew that out the park, amazing big rooms lovely sea view and view of Arran “if you go deluxe” 

And I couldn’t even finish dinner. Breakfast was amazing also whether you eat the continental or cooked or all like me  😍hopefully be back very soon x

Linda – 4th April 

I had booked for us to go for lunch we arrived approx 15 mins early  so we were expecting to wait possibly at the bar, but, we were taking straight to our table, and had our lunch from the light menu, which was fab! especially the cheesecake, it was an Easter egg cheesecake!! Service was quick and very friendly, we hadn't been here before so we were pleasantly surprised to say the least, so will definitely be going back there again. Well worth a visit.

Simply stunning

This hotel surpassed all of our expectations in every way! The decor was beautiful, the room was fabulous and the view from the sea facing room was just spectacular!

I would thoroughly recommend a stay at this place. The jacuzzi bath was a built in bonus.

Lunch with friends.........

I visited this restaurant with a friends for lunch recently, and thoroughly enjoyed the food. The service was very good, staff friendly and attentive. We initially only wanted 2 courses, however the desserts were so inviting, we made it a 3 course lunch! The decor and seating plan is very pleasing, and will definitely return in better weather to sit outside looking over the water........

Relaxing getaway

Recently booked a night away for my birthday. The weather wasn't on our side but still got to enjoy the stunning views of Arran and sound of the waves from our room. Dinner was great, I have an allergy - our waitress Fern & the chef could not have been any more accommodating! Makes such a difference. Overall a lovely relaxing stay and will be back!

Fabulous Stay

We won a voucher for a nights b&b and stayed Saturday 16th . The room was gorgeous with French doors with a gorgeous view over the beach. The bathroom was amazing with a jacuzzi bath. We had drinks in the bar in the afternoon and I had a scone with jam and cream which was yummy. I was very impressed with the cake cabinet. Our dinner was delicious and after dinner we sat on the comfy couches with a cocktail. Very relaxing night. Breakfast next morning was fab as well. Good selection. All in all had a great time and would definitely recommend the hotel

Because of you Gary I will be back with reinforcements. It has to be tried. I did take a picture but unfortunately don’t know how to upload it. Will get one of my kids o do it when we get home.

Birthday Treat

Just back from a fabulous two night break at The Waterside Hotel which I booked as a birthday treat for my partner. We were not disappointed. We loved it. Perfect location between West Kilbride and Ardrossan and right on the sea front with a lovely view of the Isle of Arran. Our room was beautiful and spotless. Very spacious with a huge bed, brilliant tv and gorgeous bathroom. Superb wi fi and tv even had Netflix. We ate in the hotel both nights and the food was excellent, chosen from an extensive menu. Lovely breakfasts too. Staff were friendly and helpful. Would have no hesitation in returning. Highly recommend.
