Stayed for 2 nights for a wedding, warm and welcoming arrival, charming rooms, very clean, excellent food and coffee. More comfortable then my own bed at home! What a lovely place to stay. My husband and I loved it and would stay again in a heart beat!

My wife and I travelled from London to attened a friends wedding. As soon as we arrived the building looked lovley and we were greeted by a very pleasant hostess. She showed us to the room and it was very nice with a nice small but very functional en suite. The bed was lovely and soft and had two very... More

First impressions of this B&B were good, friendly owner and good decor in the hall, then we were shown to our room which looked OK if small. We were in the ground floor room by the kitchen. The decor in our room was tired and shabby, the door to the garden had torn net curtains and the glass broken.The en-suite... More

very misleading review indeed. The door glass was slightly cracked. The net curtains had a few straggling threads at the bottom - typical of net curtains. The room mirror 32" by 20" is set at a 4 ft level. The bed is located at the internal wall and has easy access. The broken spar on the bed was not reported... More

Stayed for one night to attend birthday party in Ayr. Upon arrival we were asked for our breakfast order and told breakfast was 8.30. Felt this was very early for a Sunday morning, especially after a night out. Room decor was lovely and lady who dealt with us was pleasant. En suite was small and tiles but dates looking but... More

Excellent B&B with a very warm welcome. Stayed in a small double with shared facilities - very comfortable room and massive shared bathroom! Free WiFi also a bonus.

Only stayed for one night whilst visiting a friend who is ill. The building itself is an old Victorian building that has been well maintained and it retains many of its original features. The house is just off the centre of Ayr and within reasonable walking distance of the Railway Station, it sits in a nice tree lined road. The... More

Canter Holm B&B was the first guest house that I came across when looking for accommodation in Ayr. And what a find! I have stayed there on many occasions since. Warm welcome, comfortable rooms and lovely atmosphere. Within walking distance of the train station, town centre and seaside, that proved to be added bonus. I have found the proprietors always...

I stayed here for 2 nights and had no complaints. It was very homely from the moment i arrived, which was a great relief as i had never been to scotland before, let alone ayr and had just spent the previous 6 hours on a train. The room was very clean and well presented, and the owners were very hospitable... More

We stayed in here when we had a power cut to our home and were greeted by arrogant staff (owner we think) who gave us a grubby room room with a bed that the sheet kept pinging off off! When i looked at the mattress it looked like someone had died on it! We asked for another room and were... More

1. I checked my booking diary, we had no family checked in Dec.2010. 2. We have no rooms in our house like the rooms described by this person. The public can check our photos displayed with Tripadviser. 3. Normally guests stayed somewhere, good or bad, they would write within a month or so, why this one was written one year... More
