“Back again and still as good”
Reviewed June 9, 2009

Wow - I was so impressed last time that I had to bring the other half. Just as good second time around. Clean, fresh, homely, welcoming... the list could go on. Simply the best Guest house / small hotel / BB call it what you will run by the Michael and Joyce who are simply the most hospitable people you will meet. A mere stroll to the beach and the front and an excellent Indian around the corner called the Rupee Rooms. Brilliant.

Stayed May 2009, traveled as a couple

We've just spent two nights at 26 The Crescent and would not hesitate to recommend it highly. Joyce and Michael are wonderful hosts and we left feeling we had made new friends. The house itself is spotlessly clean and the four poster bedroom we stayed in was delightfully furnished with lots of attention to detail. The breakfast menu is really varied and food presented beautifully. We were visiting family in Ayr and will certainly return to No. 26. in the future.

This B&B is completely unique and staying for one night at the beginning of Dec 2008 felt like an overnight stay at a Scottish Castle!

The four poster room was immaculate and very comfortable with a large en-suite. The owners Michael & Joyce were a complete delight and you must have the full breakfast - it was so delicious (I especially loved the mini black pudding!)

This B&B was the most memorable experience and we would definetly return :-)

Stayed for the weekend. Joyce & Micheal were very helpful and friendly. Rooms and facilities were great. Breakfast more than set you for the day.

We would like to thoroughly recommend both the friendly service and the quality of the provision of this B&B to anyone looking for an overnight stay in Ayr. Not only was our room extremely comfortable and clean, but the owners were extremely welcoming and attentive throughout our stay. The breakfast choice and standard was superb - even down to the little things such as remembering which sauces we had ordered the day before! We felt extremely welcome and pampered - thank you very much! This B&B deserves its high rating and certainly impressed us. Thank you so much!

Just returned from a two night stay at No26, what a lovely time we had. The place is spotless, beds exceptionally comfortable and everything has been thought out so well. Michael and Joyce were so friendly and could not do enough for you. Some of the little touches and quality in the Crescent you would be hard to find in a 5* hotel!
Breakfast was better than most of the top hotels we have stayed at, porridge to die for then a choice of full English, Haddock and poached eggs, smoked salmon and scrabbled eggs or just eggs done as you like, all cooked perfectly.
We will be back for more….

We stayed at The Crescent Guest House in Ayr for a few days whilst visiting family - what a wonderful place! The location of the guest house is ideal whether you are exploring the town or wanting to wander along the beach. But it is the extremely high standard of the rooms and the warmth of the hosts that make this place special. The attention to detail is impressive - the rooms are large with comfortable beds, beautiful linens and all the comforts that could be wished for. Mike and Joyce are a lovely couple who go out of their way to make your stay one to remember. We will be back!

  • Liked — Spacious, clean with great attention to detail.
