"We have found Rankin House very comfortable, spacious and enjoyed some barbecues on the patio. It was easy to get into Kilmarnock and most importantly a good place to park our 3 large vehicles in safety. It is well positioned for us as we had to travel as far as south Glasgow and east to Strathaven early in the morning. We reached the A77 Glasgow to Ayr and south to Stranraer road in a few minutes".

It's not often you get such great value for a long term break or work contractors' accommodation.
Check in anytime using a keysafe at the property;
If you're a contractor on a job, then your staff can self cater saving you hundreds on restaurant bills AND if the job extends we may be able to accommodate you at short notice either at this property or another locally.
Right next to the motorway so easy access to Glasgow.
With a good blend of economy and comfortable, it was clean, and easy to access. Lots of room and plenty of services. Dealing with representatives and owners of this specific location was friendly , prompt, and helpful. I would recommend this location to everyone.
