It's normally a compromise when it comes to staying somewhere dog friendly, but Woodland Bay has the right mix of casual and fancy. Massive rooms, serviced daily, facilities all great. Perfect for discerning dog owners.

This was our first visit to this restaurant and we weren't disappointed. Comfortable and relaxing atmosphere. Friendly polite staff. Good food and reasonable prices. Menu clearly marked with choices for Vegetarians, Wheat Free and Gluten Free. We will definitely return.

What a great location! Right across the road from the beach, perfect for giving the dog a little run around and just outside of Girvan. The rooms were clean and spacious, huge double bed with the single bed located in a separate area of the room (separated by wall). Staff were friendly and the food was exceptional! They even supplied... More

this place is really a hidden gem, we chose this because although it is a couple of miles out of Girvan we weren't impressed with what was on offer in Girvan itself, from checking in to leaving everything was perfect, we'd upgraded to a seaview room which I think was number 3 which was in the courtyard, the room and...
