Seaview location breakfast
the staff were very helpful to myself and my husband who is disabled. It is a very good location, easy to get to the beach and shops.
Room 3 was very nice and had a walk in shower which suited our needs. It was however a little cold in the afternoon but we were aware that the heating was on a timer
I stayed at the Horizon on the Ayr beachfront for three nights in a lovely sunny double bay-windowed room. It was an excellent position, only a short distance from the town centre, and with a wonderful view of the sea and coastline (and islands if not too hazy or foggy!) Staff were, without exception, friendly, patient and helpful. The dining room and meals were great. I dined in each night and fell in love with the lime and blackcurrant cheesecake!
Parking in the hotel courtyard was hard to come by but public parking was available directly opposite the hotel so it wasn't a huge issue. Staff standing smoking below my open window was a bit annoying.
Situated in a wonderful location on the Esplanade and close the gardens and the beach there is easy access to all Ayr's amenities and the town centre. The hotel is comfortable and clean and there is a good choice on the menue and the breakfast is outstanding value. Will definately be back.
Only disappointment was the lumpy bed which made for a restless nights sleep. Need new mattresses.
The breakfast was good.
But the staff was a little bit rude. I think a training should be provided on politeness with guests staying at the hotel.
Room comfortable, breakfast very nice. Nice position on beach but walking distance to town centre.
Advertised wifi unavailable in my room at the bottom end of hotel. This was inconvenient as there was also no 3G signal in room which restricted me as I had specifically booked with wifi. I did mention it but nothing done. Suggest you request an upstairs room.
Room even though it is small it was nice and clean, Good breakfast! Bar and Resturant very nice!
Thought £150 per night was too much! No Mirror in bedroom! Toilet/Shower very small! and no room in bedroom for a small table to sit at! Putting the price aside we did like the Room/Hotel and the location and Have booked again in April 2015 because its £80 per night and reckon that is a more realistic price, delighted with that and looking forward to staying again!
Food was lovely as was location
The whole stay was a pleasure
The location was good, being on the coast.
Breakfast starts at 0730 and you cannot checkout before 0800 - unless you settle the bill the night before. This is a pain if you need to get away early. I was put in an attic room, which might be OK if you are less than 5ft 6" tall - I had to move around with my head lowered to prevent hitting the roof!
The welcome at check in and the wonderful food in the restaurant.
Access to the room was tricky with a number of staircases
Staff very friendly and helpful.nice atmosphere.food good.
I think as there was a wedding on while we stayed they need to look at giving the holiday guests I bit more consideration as we are paying guests also.
The helpfulness of the staff.
The room was small. The bathroom was very small too.
They accommodated my disability. Excellent location on sea front. Good clean room Excellent breakfast choice cold buffet and the choice of fresh cooked food as well. Staff were helpful, efficient, and friendly. Will recommend
Room a little cramped, however will still recommend
Lovely hotel and staff have been to the Horizon a few times breakfast and dinner are both really good we take our dog for an extra £5 a night which is great hope this helps you to decide.
Everything about the hotel was good. Ate at the restaurant on two occasions and the food was very good considering that I am hard to please when it comes to food. On the 1st night I had sea bass and on 2nd night steak and I cleared my plate on both occasions
Bath towels were too small
Food was very good . well presented, hot and very reasonably priced. Hotel was spotlessly clean and looked as if it had just been refurbished. Staff were very welcoming and accommodating. Close to shops and uninterrupted view of sea. No complaints. Would go back.
Pity the hotel had car parks on two sides but at least this meant there was no shortage of parking !
The hotel was well maintained and run, the staff were helpful and polite also the room had excellent veiws with quality furnishings.
Great view of the sea. Ideal location. Staff friendly and helpful. Food good.
Feel it was over priced for the rooms.
Friendly, attentive staff. Nice, modern room.
Staff all pleasant and helpful, nice quiet place.
Bedroom could have been cleaner.
Most things really
Only thing i can think of is this stay the room was smaller than the one we had last time and we were struggling for space to put the dog's bed into.
We loved the cooked breakfast rather than the buffet as it was lovely and hot served on hot plates. The young man serving us in the dining room for breakfast was so nice, nothing was a bother to him.
I cant think of anything we didn't like and this was our first time at the Horizon. We visit Ayr a lot and we will be back at the Horizon again. Thanks for a nice stay.
our room was at front of hotel and had great view of the sea. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Good food. Hotel very comfortable
Felt that it was overpriced for the style of rooms.
