“Great B & B”
Reviewed February 2, 2014

We stayed in this B & B last summer on a visit to our hometown Irvine. It was wonderful, comfortable room, great breakfast and couldn't fault anything. We are back in Scotland again this summer and have booked there again. Well worth a visit.

Myself and my girlfriend stayed at Braidmead House for three nights in Room 5, in the attic. All of the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, especially Diana, who really went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. The house itself is beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean and our room was very comfortable, calm and quiet. At some point during your stay, you NEED to have the full Scottish breakfast - the black pudding is particularly excellent.

Thank you for everything, Diana, and we'll be staying again soon!

There is nothing bad I can say about this B&B, IT WAS FANTASTIC. We stayed in Room 3 and it was beautiful. I just wish we had stayed longer. The bed was soooo comfortable and we arrived after a very hectic couple of days, we were in then straight out again with a couple of hours so we didn't get time to really appreciate this beautiful house. The breakfast in the morning could not be faulted and we were made so welcome. As we were till really tired in the morning we were offered an extra couple of hours in bed (how amazing is that), normally you get kicked out ASAP. We really wished we had stayed another night instead of going to Glasgow. We cannot wait until our next trip and this time we will stay longer. Thank you for making us so welcome

Room Tip: Definately Room 3, BEAUTIFUL

This is a first rate B&B in a beautifully restored victorian house. The care and attention to the restoration is equalled by the care and attention of the hosts. We had a great welcome with tea and coffee offered right away. The public living room was very tastefully decorated with many original features adding to the general great look. Breakfast was all and more you could ask for. Hot food is cooked to order and fresh. A great start to the day.

Room Tip: If a little traffic noise worries you then ask for a room at the back.

We were welcomed & made to feel very relaxed by Dianna. The guest house is immaculate & beautifully furnished through out. Breakfast was a real treat the next morning & I will most certainly be returning.

My wife and myself stayed At Braidmead House, Two nights at the end of September 2013
This house is a credit to both Dianne and Jim . Although Jim says it's all Dianne's doing.
The House is immaculate and beautifully presented. Attention to detail has to be seen.
Dianne made us feel at home .. If you get the chance have her make you an Scottish Porridge.

this is a truly lovely place to stay

My friend and I stayed for one night at Braidmead on our way to Bute. We found the B&B in a great, quiet location with easy access to all local amenities. The house was immaculate, beautiful and superbly presented and Diana was truly welcoming. The breakfast was excellent, the room huge and incredibly well presented. Diana imparted all her local knowledge on us so we were able to enjoy our short time in Irvine. A wonderful experience, would recommend to anyone.

Room Tip: All the rooms are stunning. There's no noise from any roads/adjoining rooms so ground floor is...
