Manor Park Hotel
Travel Blogs from Prestwick
... We were glad to have stayed near Edinburgh and not Glasgow, although I'm sure it's a great city with lots to offer.
Our flight from Glasgow to Reykjavik was set to leave around 1:55pm, which meant we had a bit of time to kill at the airport but having a quick lunch, getting checked-in, through security and all ...
... place I’d never been before, but imagining mum’s life back then, and how I was somehow apart of this wee town was a really nice feeling.
Back in Glasgow it was really pouring down and not looking to stop anytime soon. We walked around for ages in the rain looking for somewhere decent to eat, but with soggy feet we ended up back at the hotel ordering room service and snuggling down into ...
... as we got outside.
So, we checked into our CLEAN hostel and noticed the luggage of our absent room-bunkies. With a quick glance we quickly realized we were with a bunch of girls - but we shrugged and went downstairs. That's when people started giving us looks. The ...
... Witchy Woman, I saw it up on a pile of boards some workmen had been working at. (they were there tearing down the set up they had for the Celtic Festival-which we unfortunately just missed). When we spotted the workmen later, I thanked them for moving it into a safe spot!
We did some more souvenir shopping then walked to Tesco to stock up Peggy’s cupboards for her. The weird thing for me there was to see bottles of wine and Scotch and cases of beer right next to the ...
And just like that, i'm hit with the frightening realisation that in under 2 weeks i'll be leaving these here parts and heading out yonder for a 4 month adventure across Asia.
I want to be challenged and flushed out of my comfort zone. Of course i hope to enjoy myself, but equally I want to be terrified and tormented.
To be thrown into the wilderness and emerss oneself in all manner of exotic cultures and traditions.

Historical Traveler Reviews Manor Park Hotel Prestwick

Don't Stay Here
We stayed one night on the way back from Riga. Had booked into Muirfield Arms which is the sister hotel across the road. When we arrived at midnight we eventually discovered that we were infact going to be in the Manor Park across the road, which we had already heard about! When we finally got checked in (no mean feat) we were shown to our room via a large hole in the floor boards in the corridor. We had a very large room with a bay window with curtains that did not close, by 1.5 metres! A window that rattled back and forth, no bedside lights and mould in the bathroom. Thank goodness we didn't stay for breakfast.

Family of Five:
Bad experience. Despite reading other reviewers mishaps with this institution, we decided to ignore them and booked one of the family rooms. The booking clerk refused to give a confirmation number, which should've been enough to steer us clear. We reserved a double and three single beds for ourselves & three boys. Upon arrival we were directed a hundred yards down th street to their "sister hotel" (the Muirhouse) and given a smaller room witha double bed and two singles. The receptionist didn't offer any hint of an apology and refused to offer a discount despite the lesser accommodation and the e-mail copies I produced. Would not stay here again, and would not recommend to a friend.
We had a Ryanair flight to Prestwick so we decided to stay our first night in scotland at the manor park. The manor park hotel looks very nice from the outside. Inside the staff is very nice and helpful. The room was ok. Only thing was the missing remote for the TV.
Warm & Friendly
We were flying out of Prestwick Airport on a very early flight with Ryanair so this hotel was perfect. Only a minute from the airport and we could park our car also. On arrival we were not sure about how we got to the airport at 5am, so were then very pleased to find out that the hotel chauffeurs work 24hrs a day.
The hotel itself was a lovely traditional Scottish Manor, we were still able to get breakfast at 4am(although we were still half asleep). Small tip - on arrival ask for a FREE UPGRADE to one of the rooms with the large plasma t.v's with sky television.
The staff were very pleasant and said nothing was a problem. We would go back.
This hotel appears nice on the outside but inside is an absolute dump.The rooms are damp and foosty smelling and reminded me of the old folkes home my mother was in.Infact im sure i could detect a slight smell of urine.Bed was the most uncomfortable iv ever slept in and after eating the breakfast the following morning i felt ill for the rest of the day.The manager wasnt exactly the cleanest looking so i suppose you could excuse the rest of his staffs appearence. When i voiced my complaints to the manager i got nowhere, infact i found him very arrogant , for what reason i dont know.He appeared to not have a clue as to how to run his buisness and treat costomers and came across as very hostile and aggresive. Lovely chap??.The hotel should be closed down for good.
Avoid this place at all costs!
We stayed one night in this place and it was one night too long!
The bed mattresses were a disgrace, springs making it impossible to have a decent nights sleep, add to that our room was located over the bar so the noise went into the small hours, we had to be awake by 4am for a flight but ended up being awake the whole night!
Please note that breakfast is not included, they don't mention this until after you've had it!
An absolute disgrace!
Booked this hotel through their own website a week before travelling as an over-night stop over for Prestwick airport.
We stayed at the hotel for two nights. We had booked a twin room but were given a family room at the same rate. It was quite large with a large ensuite bathroom with toilet and bidet.
Chilly but Friendly
We stayed here for 5 nights and were made very welcome, we had our young daughter with us and were put in the only family room, a double bed and a single, room space was tight and the room was cold at night. Shower also small and not particulary powerful. Breakfast was great, piping hot and very tasty. Staff made us feel very welcome and gave great info on local area.
Would stay again, but will remember to pack nightclothes.
