Recently was back in Scotland for family wedding and only place nearby we could find to stay was The Woodhouse Hotel. This place is great. The owners are such a friendly couple, they make you feel so at home. The food was excellent and the home baking to die for. Rooms relaxing and comfortable and the garden a joy to sit in, when we saw some sun! Please give this lovely Hotel a try next time you need somewhere to stay on Scotland's West Coast. Also the staff really take care of you and you really don't want to leave.

After two weeks travelling around Scotland, we wanted to see some of the west coast and headed there. We hadn't booked anywhere to stay prior to leaving, and found The Woodhouse Hotel while driving through Largs. We were welcomed in by Lilian, and shown the "balcony" room - lovely! Four poster bed, clean and bright, with our own little balcony overlooking the main road; wireless access as well - a must have as we were flying home in 2 days and there were still problems from the ash cloud! Because it was mid week and after 7pm, I think we got a great deal!
The Wood House has a great dining room and bar/lounge, which we enjoyed that evening. The food was quite good, with ample portions; as well as great hospitality from Lilian & Willie. We had a great sleep, and wonderful traditional breakfast in the morning - served by Lillian. Then we were off for some exploring for the day. Again we hadn't booked anything for the next night, so we did our travels and decided for the price and location (and hospitality & internet access) it would be back to the Wood House!
We were greeted again by Lilian & Willie, and our room was still available; back to the lounge for a nice dinner and drinks and conversation with the locals (the election was the next day). Willie kindly supplied us with a travel weigh scale for the evening to check we weren't over our baggage limit. Another wonderful breakfast, hugs and off to the airport. It was a great way to end our fantastic trip to Scotland - would recommend The Woodhouse to anyone looking for nice, friendly spot on the coast, and good home base for some exploring. Cheers!

We used the Hotel as a base for visiting the surrounding area (Loch Lomond, Isle of Arran, Cumbrae, Ayr etc). All places are within easy travelling distance. Edinburgh is only 1 hour away. Hotel very comfortable. Lillian and Willie and all the staff are exceedingly friendly and helpful. Nothing is too much trouble. Meals are excellent with a good choice of dishes on the menu. Can highly recommend the Woodhouse Grill breakfast. It will keeping you going all day until dinner.
