Spa & Leisure

Despite the venue’s history the interiors are uncompromisingly modern, and nowhere is this more evident than in the spa. Offering relaxation from top-to-toe, the thermal suite includes a relaxation pool with water cannons and jets, a steam room, Jacuzzi, experience shower, and heated seats and loungers. There is also a relaxation room with teas available throughout the day.

Amidst a sea of deep purples, walnut panels, and mood lighting, the treatment rooms are the pièce de résistance at the spa, offering a full set of treatments from ESPA. There is also a tanning room using St Tropez products, and a finishing studio for those all-important manicures and pedicures.

Hotel & Accommodation

In 20 acres of land, overlooking The Loch of the Lowres, and with the nearby Creoch in sight, one of the key assets of Lochside House Hotel is the view across the surrounding Ayrshire countryside. Built in the late 19th century by the Marquis of Bute, it was originally a shooting lodge, before morphing into its current guise as a hotel in the 1990s.

The hotel’s Afton Restaurant and Bar is decorated with the modern design that’s characteristic throughout the hotel, with jewel hues, and a glass exterior that wraps around the terrace. With views across the loch, they are open for all meals and the bits in between, and they have an extensive range of cocktails available as well.
