“Short but very pleasant stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

We stayed at this B&B at the end of August for 1 night. The house is in a nice area within easy walking distance of the beach and town centre. Parking is on the road outside the house. We were warmly greeted by Michael who very kindly took our numerous bags up to our room. We had a double room at the back of the house which was large, quiet, very nicely decorated and clean. The ensuite bathroom was compact but very clean. After a walk on the beach the next morning, we both very much enjoyed our breakfast, which is ordered the night before. 26 The Crescent is a very nice B&B, the house is lovely and Michael and Joyce were both very pleasant and attentive. We would stay here again and would recommend. We ate at Cecchini which was very nice.

Couldn't find fault with this perfect place to stay. The location is fantastic, could walk to restaurants shops etc. didn't need to move the car. After a very warm welcome from Michael the owner, we were shown to our lovely room. We had a four poster bed and two very comfy armchairs, everthing was spotless.
The breakfast was the best we've ever had.

This was a find.....clean, quiet, comfy, yummy food and hosts (Michael and Joyce) worth their weight in gold. If you are looking for a home from home stay with added helpfulness but not intrusive, this is it. No faults or areas of improvement noted. Many many thanks for a delightful stay.

Room Tip: We stayed in a twin room at the top of the house which was totally silent but a couple of flight of...

I felt compelled to write a review as soon as I got home as I have just stayed at 26 The Crescent for 2 nights and it was beyond all expectations. My friend Claire and I were attending the wedding of an old friend who was marrying her beau 10 miles outside of Ayr. Our room was spotlessly clean, our beds were comfy, the breakfasts were delicious, and the Crescent was extremely peaceful. Michael and Joyce did everything possible to make our stay special and a HUGE thank you to them for acting as chauffeur one eve. It is rare to find such kindness.

My husband and I stayed at The Crescent while visiting Ayr for a wedding at the Brig O Doon. From the moment we arrived we knew we had chosen the right place- Michael and Joyce were very welcoming and friendly and very helpful with directions to wedding. We ordered breakfast on arrival for the next morning (our own choice to do so) and i asked for beans with mine which they didnt do but Joyce said it wouldnt be a problem. The room itself was lovely, very clean and comfortable with everything we needed. Being 7 months pregnant, i was hoping it would be nice comfy bed and i wasnt disappointed, i slept like a log. Breakfast was delicious, beans included! Thanks again michael and joyce! karen and barry

This little gem of a B&B well deserves it's 5 star rating. Spotless, well designed and spacious rooms with all the thoughtful little extra's to make your stay special and excellent breakfast's with lot's of choice. The owners, Michael and Joyce provide a warm and welcoming atmosphere and obviously take pride in the outstanding service they provide, we entered as guests and felt we left as friends. Hubby was spoiled for golf courses and mum loved the shops, I revelled in the Rabbie Burns history and we even managed to squeeze in a visit to the theatre! We will be back, which is the highest recommendation we can give and will definitely be recommending to NHS colleagues as this is a far cry from the soulless accommodation we usually encounter. Having travelled for both business and pleasure over many years I can truthfully say this was by far my best find, thank you to a lovely couple.
