Just five miles down the road from Stevenston is a hotel that will win the hearts of golfers around the world. The Gailes Hotel, built in 1995, is a picturesque hotel and restaurant complex that is within close proximity to a large number of golf courses. Nearby, the North Gailes Golf and Leisure Complex offers a spa, health club, driving range, two 9-hole courses, bar and excellent coffee shop.
Rooms at the Gailes Hotel are spacious and well appointed, with beautiful views. Super king-size beds and carpets that your feet sink into are just a couple of the touches that will make you feel like you are in the lap of luxury. If you have children with you, they offer family rooms with additional beds. The family rooms accommodate four guests.
Located down the coast a few miles south of Stevenston, on the outskirts of Irvine, is the Menzies Irvine. This 4-star hotel has recently undergone extensive renovations and it exudes an atmosphere of elegance without being stuffy. Its 128 guest rooms are large and very nicely furnished, the restaurant serves dishes that are appealing and tasty, the attached junior 9-hole golf course and the sheer number of excellent golf courses in the neighboring towns are all reasons that this hotel draws guests from near and far.
If a Bed and Breakfast is more to your liking, a short distance from Stevenston is the Ardeer Farm Steading. At the edge of a working farm, this 4-star luxury bed and breakfast has six guest rooms that are luxuriously appointed. From the attractive guest rooms to the power showers to the LCD televisions and free Wi-Fi access, guests are not left wanting. This will be especially true once they incorporate the planned free international calling.
Bed and breakfast guests can start their day with a hearty Scottish breakfast or can nibble on a light Continental offering. Although Ardeer Farm Steading doesn’t serve other meals, there are many good restaurants in the surrounding towns. In Ayrshire, nothing is very far away.
In addition to the bed and breakfast rooms, the Ardeer Farm Steading has two guest cottages that are equipped with kitchen facilities. The cottages are, like the guest rooms, furnished with taste and have been modernized. The cottages are equipped with everything you need on a holiday. The only thing missing is Wi-Fi access and DVDs which they are planning to include.
