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

We have just spent two nights at the Berkeley Hotel in Ayr and could not find fault with it. On arrival we were quickly checked in and given all details of meal times ect. The room was very well laid out and had plenty of room, fantastic shower and a really comfy bed. We booked a dinner, bed and breakfast... More

What a fantastic weekend I’ve just had. 7 of us this weekend at the Berkeley could not fault this establishment. When we arrive they were not expecting the 7th person due to a mis-communication with the booking – not a problem to this team and extra bed sorted ASAP. The rooms were absolutely fabulous each room was nicer than the... More

Just back from girls weekend away. The Berkeley hotel is furnished to a very high standard. The bed was extremely comfortable. All of the staff couldn't do enough for us from helping me carry my luggage to helping me find my phone! The cocktails were great and the food was delicious . Nothing was a problem. I will definitely return.

The proprietors were nothing but fantastic when we had a problem about getting a late night booking after our... More

We arrived late after making a last minute booking, hoping for a good bed for the night to stop us having to drive another 2 hours, while tired, to get home. The proprietor was unhelpful and fairly rude. At first claiming she didn't have a booking, then, that she didn't have a room available. Only after we demanded a refund... More

My wife and her friend booked a meal last night, 08/10, in this hotel. I arranged to pick them up at 10.00 pm but I got a phone call just before 9.45 pm to say they had been turfed out into the street. I arrived to find them sheltering at the front (locked) doorway. It seems that when they still... More
