Brilliant place to stay. Lovely and clean and close to town centre. Owners lovely and friendly. Only downside was the noise coming from the pipes in the morning!! Don't know if that was just our room but i suppose there isn't much that can be done about it. Overall, great stay.

Helen has a """"Wicked"""" sense of humour, the food for breakfast was amazing , along with everything else on offer, so like home from home. The house, and rooms, were fantastic, so big. We read the "terrible" review that was left, and it was nothing like what was mentioned, that person must have visited from another planet. The following reviews... More

A beautiful guest house situated in a lovely residential area, only 10 minutes walk from Ayr station. The owners couldn't have been friendlier. I stayed there as a friend was getting married nearby, and when my lift to the wedding let me down, the owners offered to give me a lift to the venue themselves!! Well and truly beyond expectations.... More

This is a beautiful bed and breakfast situated on a lovely road lined with cherry blossom trees in full bloom. The rooms were huge family rooms beautifully laid out and decorated. The owners were very friendly and accommodating, and the place was spotless. We accommodated 4 of these rooms.

Very pleasant stay, bed was comfortable & room spacious, breakfast was tasty & well cooked. Helen the owner was very friendly & was happy to help with any enquiries or requests. Wifi did not really work in the bedroom, but not a big problem. All in all good value for the price paid.
