Munroa – 30th April 

Loads of food options to choose from on the menu - very hard decision! The food was excellent, high 5 to the chef! Had chicken tempura then chicken haggis and mustard sauce! Lovely and very attentive staff. I have a nut allergy and everyone on board knew about it straight away to prevent contamination. Recommend to others wanting to eat out in this pretty restaurant


Maggie -  28th April

Very friendly hotel, all staff chatty and helpful. Fabulous rooms newly revamped I think.

Scottish Fine Soaps in bathroom, lovely touch. Has gym and spa, golf course with Golf shop and a beautiful big wedding suite. Plenty choice in restaurant and beach a 15 minute walk away (although we never found it)


Wedding – Margaret 18th April 

We had our wedding here in April 2018 and what a fantastic place to have it... everything from start to finish was perfect,,, Emma our host was just brilliant and made sure everything went wonderful which it did and many people commented on how great a day it was... the food was outstanding with the meal itself being hugely congratulated a huge thanks to the wedding chef... I couldn't have asked for a more wonderful day no it was really all down t the Gailes and their wonderful attentive staff from bringing out a sewing kit so I could dance to providing hankies for the girls..Thankyou so much for everything you gave us a perfect day love Johnny n Margaret in sunny Italy

Gailes - Michael M (March 29th)

2 Day Stay (returning after previous year visit)

Staff excellent throughout our stay, especially maintenance staff and cleaning staff whom despite being significantly busy and managing a high turnover on the days of our stay where polite, courteous and extremely helpful. Really made our stay feel "homely".


Bar and service staff were excellent and enjoyed some genuine discussion rather than usual scripted service talk. Very welcome stay and great facilities.

Attended The Buy Msh lunch yesterday! Lunch was delicious and both waiting and bar staff were very attentive and friendly.


Gailes - S McCann (March 23rd)

Overnight stay

Despite the hotel having problems with their gas supply, which meant no hot water in our room, and a restricted menu at dinner, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff remained friendly and helpful throughout.


This was our first visit to Gailes Hotel; we had been given a voucher as a present.


The hotel itself is clean, modern, and tastefully decorated.


We shall certainly return.

Overnight stay

Myself and my husband have just came back from an overnight stay. We received this as a Christmas present from my mother and father in law. This was part of an It Is On deal which included overnight breakfast and 2 course dinner. We arrived around 1pm and was told by reception that our room would be ready about 1.30, we decided to go into the bar for a drin, ( pint of tennents and Bottle of corona) total price £8.15, a bit pricy but only what is expected at hotels. The bar was lovely and warm and a nice atmosphere. Staff there were all lovely. We were alloctaed our room and have to say it was very nice indeed, great size and comfy bed.


Our dinner that night was from a limited menu but still had plenty of choice, I asked for the soup but unfortunatly the one I was looking for had already been sold out (7.30pm) so settled for melon, hubby had veg pakora and bother were lovely. I had fish and chunky chips and hubby had burger and have got to say both were delicious and thourghly enjoyed. We decided to treat ourselfs to pudding as this was just £4 extra and again absolutly gorgeous, well worth it. Breakfast in the morning again all staff very nice and a nice selection of cereal, pastries, fresh fruit etc. What I dont understand is why all hotels only have their milk in jugs, milk is never cold...... They give tou the choice of cooked breakfast also and again I can not fault this.


All in all a very nice stay and lovely food and we would definatly retrurn again.

Excellent rooms

Loved this hotel, the staff were fantastic and the rooms are exceptional with stunning decor. Breakfast was really good, made to order so it was fresh and there was a good selection. Loved it and will visit again.


Mothers Day Lunch Lyndsey W (Mar 12th)

Had a table booked with family for Mother’s Day lunch. Service was great and our waitress Erin was very attentive and such a nice girl. Menu was slightly confusing as we had so many options. Definitely will be back!
