Reviewed September 19, 2013

We were fortunate to stay for 7 nights in this lovely, friendly guest house, which is on an elegant street (where we were able to park) close to centre of Ayr. From booking to arrival we felt welcome. We stayed in the gorgeous 4 poster room which was beautifully & tastefully decorated. Joyce & Michael are ideal hosts, making it easy to feel at home. Joyce cooked superb breakfasts, the smoked salmon, haddock with poached egg & full English were fantastic! Little treats like biscuits & chocolates were fab. Everything was great here, only one problem was leaving after 7 marvellous days! Huge thanks to Joyce & Michael for a great stay!

Room Tip: 4 poster room is huge, immaculate and very relaxing.

What a fantastic place. The customer service and attention to detail were first class. The hotel was absolutely spotless, breakfast excellent and I can't recommend this hotel enough. Ayr is a lovely place and this hotel is virtually perfect.

Our family stayed here overnight after a wedding at a nearby hotel. From the moment I booked this B&B, Micheal could not have been more accomodating. Every care was taken to make us feel comfortable and welcome. From helping us with our bags to booking taxis he could not have done more.

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.

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.
