Stayed here for one night as I was in Ayr on business. Very nice place. Landlady was very friendly and welcoming. She made conversation and when she found out I was here on business, she made sure I knew where I was going and how to get there. Room was spacious, well decorated and well equipped with the essentials. Breakfast... More

Nice b&b and friendly host who advised us of a local pub where we could take our dog, which had lovely food. Good breakfast and even catered for me as a vegetarian. Nice location as close to seafront so ideal for walking our dog

Passing through Ayr, we booked a room for one night only. Had a ground floor double room with a bathroom built into the corner. Slept well, bed was comfortable and the breakfast which was served to us by the owner’s very friendly and pleasant helper, was good though until we read the menu, we were unaware of the fact that...

Good afternoon. Stayed here with my son for one night stay. But was very disappointed with the way the landlady made me feel. It was like she never enjoyed running the bed and breakfast and she was forced to do so to pay the mortgage. Wasn't made to feel very comfortable nd the lady didn't have a nice manner at... More

We stayed two nights here in Ayr. Rooms are spacious and spotless and the breakfast menu is very broad for a B&B. The property has excellent high-speed wifi which is easy to access with the password provided. Service is of a high quality and the location is nice, being only a few minutes from the town centre and about 5... More

I’m glad I didn’t read certain Trip Advisor reviews before booking here as it would have put me off what was a lovely place to stay. I stayed here with my partner after our other B&B reservation fell through due to a double booking and it was recommended to us by the owner of the other B&B. The guesthouse is... More
