Lovely room (Sherk Suite), very friendly welcome from the owners, Ralph & Gail and helpful advice provided throughout stay, delicious home-cooked breakfast. Car parking immediately outside. 2 min drive to downtown. Dinner also available I believe but I did not experience that. Hurry yo stay here... the owners are retiring at end of September and selling up.

The whole property was clean, restful, elegant, with lots to do. The hosts were helpful and went out of their way to make sure our stay was pleasant. The room was beautiful, bed comfortable. It was without a doubt the nicest b&b I have ever stayed in to date. The breakfast was plentiful and delicious and though we had ordered... More

First impression - absolutely spotless and clean home. Perfect for a sister getaway weekend. Hosts were personable and helpful with directions, offering to print maps for us. B&B is walking distance to a few local restaurants and a short, scenic walking trail. We stayed in the Sherk Room - covers were warm and cozy, bed was comfy. Grounds are very... More

This was my first bed and breakfast experience and it really set the bar high for all other BNB's! The hosts were so nice and inviting, and the rooms were lovely. Every room in the home was so thoughtfully detailed and beautifully set up. It was really a home away from home.

This adorable place could not have been more perfect. We drove from the US for a girls weekend and wish we could have stayed longer! Our hosts had wonderful suggestions for local activities, enriching our trip. Breakfast was incredible. Our hosts had so many amazing stories and I want to go back to hear more. They were so gracious and... More

We stayed at this wonderful B&B for the 6th time and were not disappointed. Gail and Ralph are the perfect hosts and make their guests feel at home and welcome. They are masters of found-object recycling (ask Ralph where his new kitchen seating came from), so the decor is amazing. Don't plan to have lunch, because the breakfasts are enormous.

My wife surprised me about a week before our 1st wedding anniversary (yesterday, November 15th) with a link to this wonderful little place in Ayr called The Swan and Peacock. After looking at their rates compared to where we usually go (Niagara Falls, etc), I was sold. Man, I can't say enough great things about this place. We arrived at... More

We found this B&B to everything we could have hoped for and more. Traveling as two-couples we chanced upon this place when looking for a cozy & friendly alternative to hotel accommodations in the area. We've nothing but positive things to report after an all too brief overnight stay, next time we'll arrange for a longer visit. The hosts, Gail... More

My new husband and I approached Gail and Ralph months ago looking for a beautiful location for my bridesmaids and I to stay the night before our wedding, to get ready the morning of, for wedding party pictures and to return for our wedding night. Choosing The Swan And The Peacock was one of the best decision we ever made,... More
