Ross 31st July

Phenomenal in every way. Had my wedding at the Gailes and from start to finish couldn't have asked for more. The staff were superb, the waiters, the bar staff, the cleaning staff, the reception staff. Everyone was extremely friendly, helpful and informative. That wasn't just the feedback from me and my partner but the feedback from the rest of the guests too.

The rooms were extremely clean and had a modern but rustic feel to them. Our suite was fantastic. The jacuzzi is a dream and the bed was extremely comfortable. 


The food was maybe the best I've had anywhere. I'm not exaggerating that either. I'm including a lot of top restaurants in this. It might be the best I've had. Everyone else said the same so hats off to the chef and the rest of the kitchen team. 


Would also like to say a warm thank you to Claire our co-ordinator and Emma. Our wedding ran as smooth as it could be. Everything was perfect. So would highly recommend using the Gailes as a venue. The grounds are beautiful. 


Only thing I would say is the drinks are pricey. But considering everything else I've said it's absolute value for money. 


One of the best stays me and my wife have had at a hotel if you exclude the major fact we were married there. 

Thanks again, 

Ross and Jade McGowan

Lazy cycle ride. Cycled to the Gailes and stopped for breakfast, sat outside as the sun was shinning, ordered 2 breakfast one normal and vegetarian and pots of tea. Tea arrived first in individual tea pots and it was real tea. Breakfast's were excellent food cooked to perfection veg sausage was the best I have tasted. We also got orange juice and glasses 

of water. Service was excellent

Magic food in top end surroundings ! Great chilled atmosphere in this Hotel visited many times for meals..... Service polite courteous & always with a smile ..... we had the Fajitas & Fish & Chips both meals were fantastic. The drinks a little expensive altho to be expected for a Hotel! I’d definitely recommend been to functions of a happy & dad nature & the food & spread amazing !


Mark – 14th June  Wedding heaven

We had and attended our daughter’s wedding at the Gailes . Absolutely fabulous venue and staff were brilliant. Accommodation was excellent and the whole day ran like clockwork. Meal was fantastic and bbq in the evening amazing. Couldn’t recommend this venue more. From initial enquiry through to the actual day they took the strain. Setting is second to none


Lauren -7th June

Booked a spa night as a couple as a treat and whole experience from start to finish was great. The use of facilities along with your room booking came in very handy and we also added the option of a few treatments. The hotel is fresh and very clean and up to date decor rooms are very modern and come with everything you need including hair dryers , iron/board etc. The main thing that stood out for us was the staff and meals. We arrived and was in number 2 which was a ground floor room beside the last whole of the golf course, wasn’t great as we had people peering in our window so we phoned reception and within 5 minutes we were moved upstairs to a better room. We sat for over 4 hours having a 3 course meal and drinks downstairs and it was the best meal we have had in a long while couldn’t not fault any of it, the staff especially a lady called Alana were exceptionally polite and nothing was a hassle for them either. 10/10 stay will defo be back.


Mansell – 3rd June

I stayed as part of a group of 22 golfers in late May.

We played Western Gailes, Dundonald and Gailes Links and could not have had a better hotel for our stay. Not only was the location perfect, the hotel and its staff catered for us excellently. The rooms were ideal, the breakfast plentiful and the staff very attentive.

We had dinner on the final night and to a man, everyone really enjoyed it.

I will definitely be returning!!


Gary – 17th May

This is the best hotel I ever use in the UK and friends from Germany Holland agree. The rooms are fantastic, and the food, but most of all the staff, from April at reception to Mary and Amy in the restaurant. All lovely and so friendly.
