About The Waterside Hotel
The Waterside is the "must visit" venue in the family-owned SimpsInns group. The stunning water's edge location in West Kilbride provides panoramic views across the Firth of Clyde out to Arran. Contemporary design, innovative menu choice and wonderful ambiance sets The Waterside apart from the rest.
Choose from our extensive menus as we serve food through the day at The Waterside with something to suit every taste.
Whether you want to start the day with a freshly brewed coffee and newspaper or enjoy a traditional Scottish cooked breakfast, no problem, the choice is yours. Snacks and light bites are available through the day plus full a la carte menu takes you through and into the evening.
At all SimpsInns restaurants, bars and hotels, we pride ourselves on sourcing only the finest local ingredients where possible for our creative dishes and menus.
Staff are so friendly and so helpful the food is lovely and the views my favourite type of place 🏴🤙
A lovely place to catch up with friends & enjoy some light bite menu choices.
Pleasant visit. Staff friendly and efficient.
Staff were very welcoming and pleasant and the food was delicious!
A refuge in the Covid storm. Nice to be able to eat out (for now!) Quiet calm safe dining with tables well spaced out and staff taking care to keep people as far apart as possible. No alcohol allowed at present so can't really comment on drinks. Food delivered was not exactly as on the menu but this isn't a problem, it was all lovely. I think hospitality will be having a hard time just now knowing when to order in stock and when to deplete to avoid waste given the uncertainty about when they will be able to open. We had a lovely time and the staff were really friendly and helpful.
Beautiful restaurant and lovely food.
A larger coffee and more tea with afternoon tea would be nice. Also be better if the drinks arrived with food instead of ten mins before but apart from that everything was superb
lovely meal with great service in comfortable restaurant
Staying here as part of( small) wedding party. Breakfast was cooked to order with an extensive range of hot items. Service was friendly and punctual and the staff were scrupulous in following all safety guidelines which made it relaxing for us xx
As I've stated in the Booking.com review the staff were outstanding and deserve a pay rise.
Had a lovely stay room was beautiful, clean and comfortable. Food and drink offering was first class. Our third visit and won’t be the last.
Had a lovely lunch, food delicious!! Service was quick and efficient with all precautions taken correctly. Nice quiet atmosphere, will defiantly return.
We always love our visits to The Waterside. The service is always top class and the food is amazing.
Highly recommend the waterside. Staff so friendly and attentive. Food absolutely delish. Breakfast this morning 10/10. Will definately be returning soon. Thank you xxx
Really well organised, good number of staff who looked after us well with plenty of room between tables. Loved the idea of the Fish & Chip lunch and it didn't disappoint :)
COVID guidelines and staff are 1st class. As was our breakfast after a lovely coastal walk. Will definitely be doing it again.
Perfect as always.
The staff were so welcoming and the service was excellent.
Daughter's pizza base had mould on it before she could decorate it. My inlaws had the Chicken fajitas and it was so spicy they could barely eat it. My father in law had to ask for milk to cool his mouth down. It was a birthday celebration and the waiter brought out my husband's cake and didn't light the candles. Wouldn't rush back I'm afraid.
Food was lovely and service brilliant. Felt soft drinks were a bit on the pricey side. The staff are friendly and efficient. I would recommend trying it out
Was booked for a high tea, the food arrived but had to ask for the tea after waiting a while.
A great place for coffee or breakfast. People are very friendly and it feels a safe environment at this time.
Food was amazing.. had fish n chips. Outstanding. Chef is the best in Ayrshire in my opinion.
Very good food but slightly more expensive than other similar places
