Just returned from a one night stay at the Berkeley Hotel. We stayed in room 5 which was beautifully decorated, spacious and very clean. Breakfast brought to our room at our chosen time - great quality ingredients. We will be definitely going back soon

Stayed here Friday night.was a gift from our dear friends, and was meant to be DB&B but due to building works most of the hotel was out of action. The proprietor informed our friends and gave us the choice of changing dates, but we decided to stay on a B&B basis, with our breakfast being served in our rooms. When... More

We stayed here for 2 nights recently and we absolutely loved the place. On the corner of Barnes Street opposite Wellington Square, the Berkeley is in an ideal location for a break in Ayr. A minutes walk from the Low Green and beach and 5 mins stroll to the town centre there are also 6 or 7 restaurants virtually on... More
