Rated 4 out of 5 by Steve1705 Anniversary Getaway
We stayed for one night to celebrate our wedding anniversary, taking advantage of the Spa which was excellent and welcoming. The room was very comfortable and well presented. Our only disappointment was the ridiculous prices of drinks in the hotel bar which were significantly more expensive than golf course clubhouse! £10 for a glass of average Pinot Grigio and £6 for Becks beer! I would also say the breakfast was good but could be better. Overall an excellent hotel with fantastic facilities but just could do a little better.

Trump thinks that an elegant 1920's lounge should be turned into a sports bar - madness. How to ruin a 'luxury' hotel. Felt a bit understaffed when we were there (having been 5 times before) which I guess are more Trump changes. Fab setting and great staff, super sunday brunch and sat night dinner. Nice quiet and spacious room and of the staff present they were excellent and very friendly

The main hotel is great while the spa building is very much in need of a renovation. I requested a room in the hotel, 9 months ago, as we were staying 6 nights and ended up in the spa building and could not change our room. Except for the room we were very impressed with the staff and the hotel.

I used to love this hotel and have stayed numerous times before it was renamed. The suites were lovely, the hotel sits on a hillside above the see like a gorgeous luxury liner, and service was great. Unfortunately, the decision to put the Trump name on the property really turns me off. I avoid Trump properties in the US simply because I find them brash and unappealing. Following so much controversy in Scotland and so many offensive remarks by the man himself, I really cannot abide the idea of staying at a property named after the odious Trump. A name is obviously important and must have meaning, otherwise hotel groups would not go to so much effort and expense to brand their properties... so this decision to apply the Trump mark to this property is significant and is definitely is a factor in my decision not to stay here again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by richip Great location, fantastic golf but hotel needs a lot of attention
Overall an enjoyable weekend though this is pitched (and priced) as a high end hotel.
Room - very very tired and needs refurbishing...shower is old and not what you expect at this price point...curtains and general overall feel is sadly something from the 70's
Beds - way too soft and not a good nights sleep which is not what you expect for a lux resort
Location and view - Stunning and as expected
Restaurant - Trying too hard to be sophisticated; dishes were mixed but most were under/over cooked. Flavours were combined in an odd manner and generally think this needs a rethink and a real step up in quality and probably also a simplification of the menu
Breakfast - was fine without being brilliant - again even something like eggs benedict was under/over cooked. A friend of mine had the full Scottish and said it was good so again if you stay simple you are probably ok
Spa - basic but again below what I would expect at this level. Steam room smelt of sweat, Saunas were nice but small: 1 Jacuzzi was full every time we went in there, the pool and view were nice but it just lacked wow factor.
Overall - disappointed with the hotel & facilities which definitely took the edge of what should have been a great weekend! The golf was really excellent.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Minnie333 STUNNING LOCATION
I stayed in a classic double ocean view room and felt the room to be in need of refurbishment and modernisation. Bathroom was very old fashioned with small bath and shower. No toiletries were there on arrival and had to be asked for. Room was not up to standard of any other 5 star hotel we have stayed in. Food and service however was excellent, especially selection of food at beakfast. Spa was very tired looking and very much in need of refurbishment to bring it up to date with other 5 star hotels. Check in and check out were slow and we had to find our own way to the room which was not easy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by SLG2 Great location - fantastic views
Resort and golf courses were great with very good and friendly service. Unfortunately, upon arrival our room was missing a light bulb, had a minibar fridge that did not work, a window that did not close, and the heater did not work (which was rather difficult when it was near freezing outside). It took 2 days to get a space heater, after which the room was tolerable. Housekeeping each day was very minimal, however, no straightening and did not provide new toiletries. Overall, fantastic location however - great food and wonderful views of the water and golf courses.

This is a beautiful spot on the Irish sea with a fantastic staff and authentic Scottish experience. Norman suite was so beautiful I took pictures of each room!
