First impressions were not great, a bit run down with doors locked at 12:00 noon. Had to phone to gain entrance. Rooms cold poor facilities but to fair cheap at £59 per room. No food available. Won't return.

Stayed last friday in a superior room, which was great. Very boutique style with a fantastic four poster style bed, that was big enough for a team, let alone an individual. The bar offers a pleasant environment and is well stocked, and although I did not eat dinner here, the food on offer looked amazing.The best part of this hotel,... More

Really enjoyed my stay here. Room was beautifully decorated, cosy and warm just what I needed after a days travelling. The bed was so comfy loads of fluffy pillows! Breakfast was delivered to my room the next morning & it was a lovely treat to have breakfast in bed! Staff were very friendly and accommodating.

I came across this little gem of a hotel when I traveled up to Ayr without a prior booking. A bit naive I know but I may never have found this wonderful little place. Situated right in the middle of the town in a beautiful setting. The hotel has a long history and has been, or is in the process... More

My partner and I stayed at The Berkeley on the 6th of October. We were greeted so warmly, and then shown to our room which was absolutely stunning. We had dinner in the hotel, which was delicious and a great portion size. We were also brought breakfast to our room the next morning, which was lovely and relaxing! Our hosts... More

We arrived in Ayr late at night and were quickly welcomed into the Berkley. My wife was enchanted with the lovely Victorian style room we were given for only £89 per night. We had a few pleasant drinks in the bar before collapsing onto the softest bed ever and sleeping soundly for the whole night. After a lovely cup of... More

My husband and I booked this hotel last minute for one night B&B on 2 September as we were going to the air show the following day. There was no availability in other hotels in the vicinity. We had to go to the bar to check in; after waiting around 10 minutes on the barmaid serving one customer, we were... More
