My 5 day stay at Irvine Gailes Hotel on April 2013 was extremely satisfying, we have stayed there the last 2 years on our visits to Scotland with equal satisfaction, our daughter, son in law and adult grandchildren have also stayed there in that period and on our return to Toronto we found my other daughter and grandaughter have booked in there also in early May 2013 and we also hope to return again in 2014, so we have joined the frequent user points scheme so that we can take advantage of the benefits that it provides for our future visits. Sincerely Hugh Walker

Excellent standards and service from arrival to departure, Could recommend this hotel to anyone and know they wouldn't be disappointed.
Just returned home after having a lovely lunch at the Waterside Inn. We were celebrating a 90th birthday for a family friend and the staff made us so welcome. A great choice of lovely food, fast efficient service and an enjoyable time had by all. Look forward to returning there or one of the other Simpsons venues in the area, when we next down.

my husband and i had dinner at the waterside this evening for the first time and the service was outstanding, the food was excellent we both cant wait to go back!!
Had a fantastic stay at the Gailes last weekend. Top class service and lovely place to stay. We were transported to the new cafe/bar Si! which is also part of the group and had a fantastic meal. Will highly recommend to friends and family. Thanks again x
I just wanted to thank Claire for all her help yesterday at our ladies event. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meal and I give below a quote from one of Our guests who emailed.
“Venue delightful - I've never been there before. The meal was outstanding - I'd almost go as far as to say one of the best event meals we have ever had”
Please convey our sincere thanks to all the staff concerned it was great to work with you once again, especially on this my last Hansel event.

LOANS - Fantastic Hotel
This Hotel is one of the best I have ever stayed in. Could not fault anything.
A great choice. From the minute we arrived at reception we were made welcome and the room was faultless. Didn't have an evening meal as we ate out in Ayr but the breakfast was fab and will definitely stay again if we need accommodation in the area again when travelling.
Thank you for a fantastic overnight stay last night....I will be back! Compliments to all your staff especially the chefs for a very enjoyable dinner and the best scrambled egg i've ever tasted at breakfast xxxx
Just had the most fabulous ribeye steak cooked to perfection xx lovin Si
“BEST TAPAS OUTSIDE OF THE CITY”
Reviewed 12 May 2013 NEW
Me and my wife finally got the chance to visit Si last weekend and where not disappointed. We both fancied tapas and left Si totally sated. The patatas bravas , prawns , lamb meatballs , Catalan fish stew and the bread board were all delicious !!!! Décor is very new and modern and works perfectly. The staff are so friendly & efficient adding to a nice relaxed atmosphere . Popped upstairs for a quick look before we left and it looks fabulous and very classy , we'll be back to try the Italian cuisine very soon.

Dined upstairs in the Italian restaurant- delicious. Menu had a great choice and food was delicious. Was more rustic Italian as opposed to your run of the mill spag bol etc. Reasonably priced too! Atmosphere was really good and I'll be back soon!
