Allison – 15th June

Had dinner on Friday and a late lunch on Sunday. Food great as usual. Staff couldn’t be more helpful. Cara is a wee star. Relatives stayed Friday to Monday and as always no complaints. Booked for September. All in all, lovely weekend as always. Recommend to anyone.


Leslie 11th May

Just home from a one night stay for my 50th birthday. The staff were really welcoming when we arrived yesterday. Really delightful young lady on bar yesterday afternoon wish I had got her name think her accent was Irish she was an absolute gem! Had a nice afternoon drink beautiful outside area to sit in sun! My room was on the second floor , stunning room and so pleased to see the little roof terrace next to my room just perfect! My husband didn't want to come out of the room and he's not keen on staying in hotels so it's five stars from him too!  Enjoyed my meal and then this morning breakfast was heaven.


Barbara 29th April 

Absolutely fantastic Hotel .Rooms very spacious, spotless and everything you need at your fingertips... well done to Val and her housekeeping team...even Netfix on Tv!! Food fantastic and staff very friendly and efficient. A perfect experience for my partners birthday treat. Will definitely be back again.


Kaza – 26th April 

Upon arrival we noticed we didn't have the requested room. This was no trouble to fix by Louise who was polite friendly and extremely helpful. We settled into the desired room which is furnished to a good standard with a massive bed and free music when u open the window from the patio area below. Room 110. Tricia and her team of cleaning staff make sure your room is prepared lovely and clean. Dinner was served by a friendly waitress Cara who even let us sample the lager to make sure my partner got right one. Not an understatement when i say the fish n chips were the best ever. However couldn't fit in all of the delicious sticky toffee pudding. Slept really well and the power shower and luxury toiletries made a huge difference. Onto breakfast.. Welcoming staff and delicious Scottish breakfast...overall a highly recommended hotel stay. Feel refreshed and given this is our second time here we will be back...thanks to all your friendly staff who go over and above well done keep it up

Very nice place, bedrooms have been well looked after, clean shower/bath facilities. Had dinner at the hotel, good choice on the menu. Service was very good, staff helpful. Overall had a great weekend , will be back at some point 



9th April Good visit (again)

We pop in every couple of months as we are local. Delighted to say as good as ever. Service from friendly efficient staff, gave us the time we needed to move onto dessert and coffee. Food was excellent. We ate from the light bite menu at £18 for three courses. Good sized portions. 10/10. 



8th April Great Stay

We had booked this as Christmas Present for our Mum and Dad .A week before the stay my Dad took stroke and we were unsure if this stay would happen. Got in touch with Old Loans to explain and they were so helpful re rearranging stay. Dad's recovery was excellent and we made the trip down. Had a great stay .Rooms were fantastic, food was good and the staff were friendly and helpful. Great place to chill .Looking forward to next visit .



3rd April Ayrshire gem

Visited this inn for a two night stay with my wife as gift for her birthday and it was a terrific stay. The inn is situated just outside Troon and it is in a lovely setting, beautiful rooms and fantastic food, the staff are very friendly and professional. There is an extensive menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner , try the loans fish supper it is top nosh. There are only 20 rooms in the inn but they are all modern decor with all you require for a pleasant stay , and they have wide range of drinks available at the bar. They also have a beer garden and a children's play area ,they also have meals available to non-residents for breakfast lunch and dinner. Great place to stay and I will be recommending to my family and friends

Overnight stay

This inn is a .lovely place to stay. I have been several times now and I would like to commend George, the manager at the inn for whom nothing is too much trouble (borrowing a charger when my phone decided to die on me. He always has a warm welcome waiting. I would also like to praise the booking staff, especially Alison, who works hard to fill requests.

It is a great place to stay.

Excellent rooms, friendly staff & Great food into the bargain. The Old Loans Inn was a big surprise, a cracking old building decorated very tastefully both inside and out. From relaxing at the bar to enjoying the day on the upstairs veranda it's just a great, very chilled out place to spend some time. Amazing coastline not far from the door is just another bonus to this place.

Excellent Stay Aileen D (March 10th)

Stayed overnight for my husband’s birthday. We stayed in the master suite which was very spacious and had a nice sitting area. The bathroom was lovely with walk in rain shower and separate whirlpool bath. Luxury full size toiletries. The food in the restaurant was very good and well presented. The staff were friendly. Would definitely return.
