Great service and overall friendly atmosphere. Not far off from the beach & the bus station to Ayr town. The breakfast was tasty and fresh, just what you would expect of an English breakfast. Would highly recomend it for short stays (business trips f.ex.).

The room may be rather small, at least if you're used to american size, but it is perfectly clean and comfortable. This being my first night in the UK, i cant compare the quality of breakfast, but it may have set a pretty... More

Had to spend one night in Prestwick because of work and chose the Fernbank. What an excellent choice I made! The guest house is exceptionally clean and my room (booked as a single but containing a small double bed) was very attractively decorated, with all the things you need - a hairdryer next to a mirror, bedside lamps, a well-appointed...
