Reviewed March 1, 2011

If you are looking for a touch of luxury, then look no further! The Ayrs and Graces is just beautiful. We had a couple of nights here last week and i just didnt want to leave! We stayed in the Robert Burns suite. It is immaculately clean and very comfortable. You have your own lounge with television / dvd and complimentry whisky and sherry ! The bathroom is equally luxurious with a huge bath and shower and with Molton Brown toiletries, not to mention the under floor heating!! In the bedroom there is tea and coffee, bottled water and even a hot water bottle for those cold winter nights! You are sure of a good nights sleep. There are french doors that open out onto a balcony with views over the countryside.
Breakfast is served in the garden room and is prepared by your wonderful hosts Rhona and Paul and is very delicious with plenty of choice!. And what can I say about Rhona and Paul...... you won't meet two nicer people, they welcome you in to their home like friends not guests. Their hospitality was second to none and I look forward to another visit!

From the minute we arrived, we felt like we were getting the VIP treatment. With Rhona and Paul, the perfect Scottish hosts, that is what you can expect - every time. The countryside setting above the Robert Burns village of Alloway, makes you feel as if you're miles away from everything and yet the sights of Ayr, Troon and even Turnberry (take note, keen golfers!) are not far away at all. The rooms are immaculate and impressively styled and breakfast's worth returning for alone! I hope to return soon, as we arrived guests but left friends. Emphatically recommended. Thanks for a wonderful short stay.

One night's stay was not long enough; we cannot wait to visit Ayrs & Graces again soon. The hospitality provided by our hosts with the most Rhona and Paul was second to none and the warm, welcoming surroundings of their immaculately decorated home were outstanding. We simply cannot fault any aspect of this b&b which is of the standard most luxury hotels struggle to achieve. Enjoying the views out to the Ayrshire countryside over a glass of wine on the heated terrace was a particular highight! Highly recommended.

My wife and I have had the pleasure of staying with Rhona and Paul twice. It was so unbelievably good the first time we had to go back to experience it all over again!
We should be there right now, enjoying our third visit, but weather in the UK has made the long journey too risky. So thinking of them prompted me to "go to cyber-print".
Well, if you've read Ayrs & Graces reviews you may think "too good to be true" I can assure you it's all true - Rhona and Paul really do treat their guests as friends, they are unbelievably good hosts. Nothing is too much trouble and the house is fantastic.
We stayed in the Robbie Burns suite (double bedroom, large bathroom and snug living room) on both occasions - superb. Breakfast is wonderful, fresh fruits, cereals, Paul makes great porridge (with cream and a dram of whisky) - Rohna provides the cooked elements full cooked to scrambled eggs and smoked salmon all truly delicious. A genuine home from home.

Our enjoyment of the Ayrshire countryside & coastlines was made even more special by our stay at Ayrs and Graces. Rhona & Paul welcomed us to their wonderful home as friends. The situation, surroundings & sophistication of this home away from home are unsurpassed. Highlights included: the welcome drinks & home baking on arrival; the luxury of the Robert Burns Suite; the sumptuous evening meals & perfect breakfasts; a "wee dram" at night; and many, many more special memories. Thanks again Rhona & Paul, we will return!

From the moment we arrived to the minute we left Paul and Rhona made our stay memorable. They couldn't have made us feel more welcome. Their welcome was warm and inviting. The surroundings are fabulous. On top of their lovely hospitality the B&B is outstanding. It is spotlessly clean, comfortable and relaxing. The views are magnificent and on a lovely day you can see for miles and miles. The breakfast in the morning was gorgeous, I had the scrambled egg with smoked salmon which I would highly recommend. I can totally recommend this hotel for anyone wishing to stay for either a romantic night or a day at Ayr races as it is well located and quiet. Although there is no promise of any tips for the races Paul has a little knowledge on the subject as is glad to help in anyway he can. Try this B&B out, you won't be disappointed - we certainly weren't.
