“Wonderful B and B I would highly recommend”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

I stayed from 15th- 17th February 2013. The Bed and breakfast is stunning inside, very clean and presented immaculately and very elegant, with a very reasonable priced stay.

Owners Melissa & David are so welcoming to all guests, the breakfast is 5* itself. They are also very helpful in recommending sites to see, and restaurants to eat out in. I will definately return soon to Ayr and will not hesitate to book with the Appin House again.

Lovely en suite, with a shower. The shower was amasing itself, very spacious

Room Tip: We had room 2 facing the Garden at the back, this was a twin room with two beds together, very spaci...

We booked Appin House three years ago by chance and found a real gem. The B&B was first class, spotless with very tastefully decorated rooms and wonderful en-suites. When the opportunity arose to go to Ayr we had no hesitation in booking Appin House again. This time we extended our stay to four nights as the location is great for all the Robbie Burns experiences and Glasgow is only a short train journey away. Again we were not disappointed with our choice of accomodation. The high standard has been maintained and nothing was too much trouble for Melissa and David.

Room Tip: Take any on offer, book early!

We chose this B&B for it's location to the railway station and internal photos as well as other reviews on Tripadvisor. We were not disappointed, Appin House is a beautiful, warm family home and Melissa and David were very welcoming. We stayed for 2 nights and enjoyed a perfectly cooked breakfast on both mornings in the lovely conservatory. You are given a card to chose your breakfast the night before so that Melissa knows your requirements for the following morning. The room we had was very tastefully decorated in neutral colours - just my taste so I could not fault it. It is obvious a lot of time and effort has been put into making the rooms just right. The shower was great, plenty hot water and nice fluffy white towels. I would not hesitate to re-book at Appin House in the future. Definitely 5 out of 5!

we booked this bed and breakfast after finding it online. We wanted a night away to relax and had planned to go and explore Culzean Castle the next day. It looked great in the pictures and had the ideal location for us. We were not disappointed when we arrived the house was beautiful and spotlessly clean. David showed us our room and it was perfect. The en-suite room had everything we needed and more. David and Melissa's attention to detail and excellent hosting made our stay very comfortable and relaxing. We had a fantastic breakfast that set up up nicely for our visit to Culzean castle. It is honestly the nicest B&B we have ever stayed in and would recommend it to anyone.

We have just spent four nights in the lovely home of Melissa and David Gambles.
The tasteful and spotlessly clean rooms are a joy, the hosts are warm and friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Breakfast was fabulous and served in the delightful conservatory. We found this lovely house by chance, but next time we visit Ayr we will stay here from choice.
The whole family including the birthday girl made us feel so very welcome and we can't wait to return. Appin House is top of my list of places to stay.

Room Tip: We had room no 2 which is situated at the rear of the house therefore very peaceful

We booked this bed and breakfast after checking out on trip advisor. It is all we expected and more. First class friendly welcoming and spotlessly clean. Melissa deserves the super reviews. The B and B is very central and we enjoyed some recommended wee pubs and restaurants, need to mention Saffys it's excellent! We are returning in December!!
