The Waterside Hotel and Kyle Suite is set in the most idyllic sea-front location along the Ayrshire coast in West Kilbride.

Spectacular panoramic vistas from the water’s edge afford you and your guests the perfect opportunity to soak up the breathtaking views across the water to the beautiful Isle of Arran. Our stunning Kyle Suite will provide the most romantic backdrop to your special day with floor-to-ceiling folding glass doors opening on to our private gardens, leading to the beach. The Waterside will truly be the perfect setting for your perfect wedding.

Facilities and Capacity

Spend your day at The Waterside in the elegant Kyle Suite. This banquet hall offers floor-to-ceiling folding glass doors that open onto private gardens, ideal for sunny days. The gardens, meanwhile, lead down to the beach for romantic wedding photos. Exchange vows in the Ailsa Lounge, which feature a stunning fireplace and bar. The gardens can also play host to outdoor ceremonies, should the weather oblige. The newlyweds can then lead their guests to the Kyle Suite, which can comfortably accommodate up to 260 guests. Smaller, more intimate gatherings are also welcomed here. The hotel has 23 modern and comfortable rooms where guests can rest after the celebrations have drawn to a close. There's also a luxurious option, the Spa Suite, for the wedding couple. This accommodation option features a balcony, a dedicated makeup area, and a private spa and sauna.

Services Offered

The dedicated wedding team at The Waterside is on hand to help you make your dream day a reality. They understand that no two weddings are alike, and will embrace everything that makes your relationship unique. They can also provide a master of ceremonies to help the celebrations run smoothly. Facilities are available for both a live band and a DJ.


Wedding menus from this hotel are carefully curated by the in-house team of chefs. They like to use seasonal Ayrshire produce and locally sourced ingredients wherever they can, for fresh, vibrant dishes. Food can be served in a manner of ways, from canapés on arrival to a buffet in the evening.

Perfect Day

We got married at The Waterside in May 2019 and our day was perfect. Venue, surroundings and the view are what made us fall in love with the venue. On the day staff made sure everything ran smoothly which meant we could just enjoy or special day.

Best day ever

We got married 17/07/21 and we had the absolute best day despite still some lingering uncertainty with restrictions the staff kept communications open and made everything really easy for us.
We both had the best day ever and our guests are still telling us how amazing our wedding was, the venue, the food and the all round atmosphere. The gardens and beach just set it all off perfectly.
Thank you all so much!
