An overnight pampering My fiancé surprised me with a last minute overnight at the hotel for Valentines. Last minute due to our work schedules. The room was super romantic with champagne, chocolates and flowers waiting for us which he had ordered when booking ...some one had also gone to the trouble and adorned the bed with silk rose petals...nice touch...

Love this wee place. They are doing some refurbishment but didn't detract from our stay. Only thing, reception constantly closed during this refurbishment, but not a big deal. Mobile phone number on the door to call and met with the lovely Megan who couldn't have been any more helpful. Room was amazing and the breakfast.....well what can we say.....this was... More

The Berkeley is in a very good location on the edge of the town centre. Classy joint with good food, well worth a try.

Our family had a fantastic time during a family Birthday meal, with about 20 of us including children. The meals were all thoroughly enjoyed, and the service was first class. Such a beautiful hotel, very luxurious. Would definitely recommend. Thank you to all the staff for a lovely evening.

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
