“The gate is great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

Stayed for a night at the gatehouse in Ayr. Very accommodating hosts, great brekkie and quality of room excellent, not sparse but not fussy either. Excellent modern shower, and our room even had a little annexe. There is a decked area behind the hotel which is a nice feature.
Owner very helpful and informative. Really felt attended to, and that nothing was to much trouble.

Room Tip: When in Scotland beware of parking under trees, the bird life like to decorate cars!

My boyfriend and I stayed for 1 night before travelling from Prestwick Airport. We received a very warm welcome and shown to our room which was beautiful (we even got an upgrade!).

Absolutely no negatives for this B&B. Plenty in the surrounding area to get a bite to eat too.

Four of us [2 couples] recently stayed for 3 nights here and we were all very impressed with the service that we received,the cleanliness and comfort of our bedrooms and the quality of the food. The owners,John and Denise,were very hospitable and welcoming. We would definitely return and recommend the Ayr Gatehouse,Bed and Breakfast to others.

Four of us [2 couples] stayed overnight here on our way to Rothesay for a celebration weekend. We were delighted with the welcome we received from John and his wife - lots of local information. We were also very pleased with the accommodation and the fantastic breakfast - well worth it. I would recommend this to anyone visiting the area. I don't think you could get better.

Stayed with my teenage daughter over the Easter weekend. Lovely large bright and airy room, comfortable beds and fantastic hosts (we ended up staying an extra night it was so good). Breakfasts were amazing and kept us going well into the day. Would recommend it to anyone visiting Ayr. It is close to the town and beaches and since we were visiting family it was a great base for us.

Room Tip: Stayed in room 4 which is dual aspect - from the side window you can see Arran and the brilliant sun...
