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.

4 x 2 course lunches 3 starters were good, prawn cocktail, patè and mushrooms. The 4th a Pakora was very dry. 2 main course chicken-haggis and burger were delicious. 2 fish and chips were covered in oil. When we mopped it up with napkins it tasted lovely but the oil was off putting.

Staff were great, food was enjoyed by all. Only comment we would make was that the sun was coming in the window shining into the eyes of some guests making it a little uncomfortable. The staff tried to block it out but could not . A blind might be a worthwhile addition to the room.

The 2 lady staff girls who were on duty at 1pm were exceptional in both their manner, appearance and all round helpfulness. the food was fantastic and appropriately priced. My wife and 2 children thought it was worth the journey from East Kilbride and will definately be back soon. well done to all.

Staff at the Gailes are fantastic, always smiling and no request is ever an issue. As a vegan i really feel well looked after at the Gailes, they make me feel comfortable about discussing what I can/can’t eat. Food is absolutely delicious!
