Very good place to stay in Ayr
I recently stayed 2 months at an apartment on North Harbour Street in Ayr. The apt met my needs very well. It’s only a 10 minute walk to the City Centre and about 15 minutes to the rail and bus stations. There’s a grocery right behind the apt and a great little coffee/bakery right across the street. The kitchen is well stocked with everything I needed. The apt was very clean and included everything one needs while on holiday. I especially enjoyed the view from the sitting room windows of swans on the river. I would definitely stay here again.

Good central location
The flat is in a good central location with easy access to the town centre and not far from the beach front, train station or buses. The location although central is very quiet and the river view is great. Parking is right up to the door, and the directions to the flat were good but the one way system was a bit confusing if you don’t have sat nav! Any questions and contact with the owners was very helpful and friendly. The flat is very clean and comfortable. Ayr is a great base to explore all of south Ayrshire from and Culzean Castle and Dumfries House we’re not far and a great day out.

Terrible
Lack of communication with owner & mother regarding booking, phoned on arrival to the surprise of those involved! Upon entering the apartment, apologies were made regarding coldness, the heating was switched on & were asked to turn it down once heated and warned 'there may be a little dust'. This wasn't the apartmen that was advertised! It was filthy, the kitchen cupboard had food items (half jar of jam, old items and greasy jars & containers. Dead flies in the curtains, hairs & spillage in the fridge, pots & microwave speckled with food. Numerous holes in net curtains, bottle top under settee, dead flies in standard uplifted lamp, fleece covering the seat as if protecting it from dirty work clothing, Unhygienic feather, cigarette burned, stained duvets( extra was paid for poor quality bedding which I had to make up myself). I honestly think this flat is being rented by someone else who, for whatever reason wasn't there on the dates I was. I was refused a refund, if I didn't have the 2 small children & I had extra money in my pocket I wouldn't have stayed. I have stayed in hostels to 5* hotels & this accomadation is not up to standard, it's overpriced & haven't heard back from Nicola since I sent the photos she requested of complaints. I think Nicola should inspect every property the day before guests arrive. I am a hard working individual who feels very let down & shocked about the whole experience. I will seek professional advice regarding resolving this matter.

Big and bright
Lovely roomy flat with bright livingroom with views of the river. Plenty of space for a family of 4 and good value for money. Great location 15 mins walk to Newton on Ayr train station, 5 mins from the beach and shops. Big Aldi just across the car park for groceries, and a parking space. Loved our stay here.
