“Perfect place to stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I stayed at The Crescent while visiting Ayr for a wedding at the Brig O Doon. From the moment we arrived we knew we had chosen the right place- Michael and Joyce were very welcoming and friendly and very helpful with directions to wedding. We ordered breakfast on arrival for the next morning (our own choice to do so) and i asked for beans with mine which they didnt do but Joyce said it wouldnt be a problem. The room itself was lovely, very clean and comfortable with everything we needed. Being 7 months pregnant, i was hoping it would be nice comfy bed and i wasnt disappointed, i slept like a log. Breakfast was delicious, beans included! Thanks again michael and joyce! karen and barry

This little gem of a B&B well deserves it's 5 star rating. Spotless, well designed and spacious rooms with all the thoughtful little extra's to make your stay special and excellent breakfast's with lot's of choice. The owners, Michael and Joyce provide a warm and welcoming atmosphere and obviously take pride in the outstanding service they provide, we entered as guests and felt we left as friends. Hubby was spoiled for golf courses and mum loved the shops, I revelled in the Rabbie Burns history and we even managed to squeeze in a visit to the theatre! We will be back, which is the highest recommendation we can give and will definitely be recommending to NHS colleagues as this is a far cry from the soulless accommodation we usually encounter. Having travelled for both business and pleasure over many years I can truthfully say this was by far my best find, thank you to a lovely couple.

The best Guest House I have ever stayed in. Superb service - Michael stayed up until nearly midnight and gave me an excellent welcome and the breakfast in the morning was absolutely wonderful. Unfortunately I was only able to stay one night due to the accommodation being fully booked but Michael very kindly drove me to my next Guest House. Michael and Joyce can feel very proud of the quality of service which they are offering.

Just back from a short, last minute break to this B&B and couldn't have been more satisfied with all aspects of the accomodation.
Extremely comfortable beds, very high standard of cleanliness, excellent breakfast choices to suit all tastes and a warm and welcoming atmosphere provided by the owners Michael and Joyce.
Would thoroughly recommend to all who enjoy the more intimate and informal atmosphere of a B&B rather than the more impersonal service of a larger hotel.
Would certainly stay there again on any future visits to Ayr.

Every detail of this property is beautifully taken care of. The Crescent itself is lovely, and 26's front garden is picture perfect. It's wonderful to have the sitting room which overlooks the garden available to guests, especially for a family group such as ours who, otherwise, would have had to meet in one of our rooms in the evening.

Michael and Joyce are delightful and so kind and helpful. Do not think twice about staying here as nothing will disappoint!

The accommodations were very nice in those quaint part of town. Close to restaurant and pubs and yet not too far to Culzean Castle for sightseeing and Turnberry for golfing. Michael and Joyce went out of their way to make it accommodating for us. Loved the high level of service that Michael gave every morning at breakfast.

Lovely place, excellent breakfast, great service. The house is a lovely old victorian terrace and is in very good condition inside. Michael kindly waited up for me despite my flight being very late into Glasgow. If ever I have to visit Ayr again, this is where I'll stay...
