The hotel was in a pleasant location within an easy walk to the seafront. I stayed for 2 nights. The staff were very friendly and helpful. It's extremely clean, the bed was comfortable and the bed linen was crisp and clean and there were plenty of good towels in the ensuite shower. The hotel is very old and has lots...

Stayed here for one night on business - decor is great, full of character, very Scottish. Room was good size, warm and comfortable. Spent most of the night in the bar with the log fire. Very friendly staff and regulars, including one who walked round in a sinister fashion with a rubber chicken mask on, for reasons known only to...

This hotel is full of flavor. The small cozy bar and restaurant is the perfect place to entertain friends. It is conveniently located off the large playing fields not far from the beach. We walked from South Harbor Street in the rain and loved it. Very warm, enjoyable.

Paul and staff could not be more helpful, efficient or friendly. Everything went smoothly and with no problems. Food excellent, in fact my whole family will be back for the toasties and chips we were served prior to funeral. They were the best toasties and chips ever!! We will be back for them alone.

I used to stay here regularly while on business in the area but not been here for approximately 5 years due to a change of role in my company. Check in was quick and I had a double en suite room which was a very decent size with the usual tea/coffee making facilities, TV and a good wifi signal. Good...

This is a very warm and friendly hotel and the staff are very courteous and helpful. Breakfast is freshly prepared and very tasty. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Wifi is readily available on the first floor but our friends in the top floor couldn't connect to it. We only came to this hotel because our booked hotel cancelled our...

My wife and I stayed here one night while on our way to Culzean Castle nearby. Visiting from America we really wanted to experience as much local and authentic culture as possible and The Abbotsford hit the spot. A great a little pub on the ground floor provides a great atmosphere to enjoy a pint before heading to bed. The...

20 years (plus) is too long for a reunion, but we did this in the Abbotsford. Just an evening in the bar, but we were made very welcome, with great beers in the Copper Bar, and the fire burning in the grate. Just a brilliant, relaxing evening. Thanks Abbotsford.

This hotel was extremely welcoming. Good food and the room was a very comfortable and spacious. My husband has Parkinsons and the staff couldn't have been more helpful and caring. Would certainly return.
