“Wish we could have stayed longer”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

My husband and I are just back from an overnight stay here and could not fault anything. It all started with Michael giving us a courtesy call a few nights before our stay and a lovely warm greeting when we arrived. Michael and Joyce seem to go the extra mile for their customers and we appreciated the little things like bottles of water and sweets in our room and the towelling bath robes in the wardrobe. As neither of us drinks tea or coffee, I was delighted that there were sachets of hot chocolate in the room. The room and en-suite shower room was spotless and nicely decorated and the bed was very comfortable.

The B&B is in a great location and just a short walk from the shore and the town centre which has a great variety of shops and restaurants.

As for the choice at breakfast it was fabulous and we both enjoyed our lovely cooked breakfast. There was also a great selection of fresh fruit, cereal and yoghurts.
Only thing that put a damper on the stay, other than the weather, is that we wish we could have stayed longer.

Will definitely be back.

Thanks for a lovely stay.

Michael & Joyce always greet their guests with warmth and friendship and run a top quality B&B.
We have stayed with them on a number of occasions and can honestly say that we regard them as one of, if not the absolute, best B&Bs we have ever stayed in.
Everything is done to perfection from the cleanliness and tidiness of the rooms to the superb breakfasts that Joyce provides.

Excellent B&B, well located and superbly hosted. I've never seen a cleaner room and bath. We were warmly greeted by Michael and felt very welcome. Breakfast was an absolute delight - and served with much graciousness by Joyce, who also provided excellent shopping advice. This is a delightful place and an outstanding value!

Thank you Michael and Joyce for a wonderfully warm welcome. Our two night stay was a great experience. Your friendly welcome, expert advice and great breakfasts made our Ayr visit so enjoyable. Just like a visit to old friends (who tidy the room and clean the bathroom). We need more friends like that. Tricia and Graeme Bell, Queensland Australia

I was fortunate to have 2 lovely evenings at this wonderful place. Michael even carried my ridiculously heavy case 3 flights of stairs! The rooms are tastefully done ,and I loved my bathroom.
The lounge down stairs was the perfect spot for a night cap.If I thought things couldn't get better....then came breakfast :) .wow nothing like a good Scottish breakfast to start the day. truly a must stay place if you are visiting Ayr,close walking distance to every thing. Michael and Joyce make you feel right at home, actually better than home !!!

Room Tip: looked at all the rooms and every one had something special about them.

On 27th April my wife & I booked a night at 26 The Crescent, 26 Bellevue Crescent ,Ayr.
The B & B is run by Michael & Joyce, we were met by Michael on arrival & shown to our room ,the B & B is very tastefully furnished & the rooms extremely comfortable, clean & fresh as the whole B & B is, I can only say that it is definitely a home from home. The breakfast room is a very deligtful place to enjoy breakfast & the breakfast itself was absolutely perfect, Gordon Ramsay would find it difficult to beat or resist. Michael & Joyce were the perfect hosts & I would challenge anyone to find a better place to stay in Ayr, well worth the 5 Stars it has earned.
