Excellent place to stay, really great staff who are always welcoming and helpful. I travel up to Ayr frequently and have tried several others before I settled on the Abbotsford. Really interesting and homely decor and a great atmosphere in the bar. Food is superb and all freshly made.

Yes it's quirky, and it's not a featureless modern chain hotel - but if you want somewhere to stay in Ayr for a night or a week this is the answer. The owners and staff are ever helpful, the food is good, the décor eccentric, the rooms are comfortable and good sizes (some en-suites are small but the showers work... More

Stayed here overnight to attend a function in Ayr. We stayed in room 2. It is a huge room but with a tiny en suite containing shower cubicle and loo - very clean with a lovely powerful shower. I've deducted one star from my rating due to the smell of cooking emanating from the kitchen which must be situated below... More

Stayed here for a few days between Christmas and new year! It was so comfortable and cosy given the wild weather outside! Seat in front of fireplace in hallway under Sir Walter Scott's portrait was the ideal place for trying the guest beers! Hotel was also fantastically decorated for Christmas, which the children loved. Breakfast and dinner was great in... More

I've enjoyed the fine ales and hearty pub food at the Abbotsford Hotel a few times and come to the conclusion it's traditional bar is pretty much perfect. The hotel features in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide and as you might expect stocks a decent selection of craft beers. Comfortable banquette seating, copper tables, tartan carpets, dark wood bar, a...

My husband and I were travelling Scotland and stayed a night at this hotel. The food was fantastic and the owner/chef was very helpful in giving us some tips of what to see and do. The next morning he cooked breakfast for us and came out with a pot of vegemite, which my husband thought fantastic. The locals who came... More
