I have stayed here over 100 times. Tonight I waited one hour for my food and a further 25 minutes for the invoice. It has not happened before but they said the kitchen was very busy. I saw a table of 10 only and few small tables. The tables of 10 were sending food back as cold. As I said never an issue before but tonight was not pleasant and I shall most likely go out to eat tomorrow, or get a take away and bring it to me room.

Booked for New Year’s Day dinner and was very disappointed. Can only explain it as a pub atmosphere, large couches next to us with people day drinking (which is fine for a pub) but not what you expect when your going out for New Year’s Day dinner. Never been seated in this particular area for a meal before and safe to say if I’m ever back I will be asking to be seated in the other main dining areas. Food was alright but overpriced.

Nice relaxed atmosphere with beautiful tasting food and very pleasant staff. If you want quality then you get what you pay for in here. Well worth a drive from Glasgow. I will certainly be back.

There is a group of 4 of us who come to the Gailes on a regular basis for lunch coffee or dinner. We always have a lovely time always served what we ask for and never hurried to leave. The service is always excellent . Thank you

Inedible potato with salmon main. One guest served his meal after everyone else had finished. (Main chicken) No side plates provided for cake. My experience has always been that the cake is cut by staff and served but we were left to cut itwith a server. Finally- the loyalty card is not accepted. Seems a little miserable

I have stayed at the Gailes a few times now and the level of service and quality never changes. Staying at the Gailes makes my business trips to Scotland relaxing and enjoyable. What ever the weather is doing you know that a smile, good food and a clean room awaits you on arriving at the Gailes.
