It was a last minute booking as we had been visiting relatives in the area and decided to stay the night somewhere. We sat in the car googling and struck gold with Beaches. We rang and managed to book a double room. It was after 8pm when we arrived and Jan couldn't have been more welcoming. Lovely room with high... More

Great room, well equipped and lovely decor. Jan is the most welcoming owner and always makes sure you have everything you need. Homemade shortbread in the room was amazing and the breakfast is the best ever. Have been going there for years and will continue to do so as it's like a home from home.

This was our third time staying here and I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Ayr now. It's decorated to a really high standard with everything you would get in a hotel and more, Jan's homemade shortbread provided on the hospitality tray is delicious!

We stayed here for two nights and were not disappointed! The whole experience from our welcome with tea in the garden through to our farewell was great. The top floor room was fantastic as was the panoramic view of the sea front and the beautiful ensuite. Jan's shortbread (her grandmothers recipe), is superb and a really nice touch. The full...

My mum and I stayed here on our recent trip through southern Scotland and it made our top 5 of the trip. We stayed in the deluxe room with the sea view - fantastic space and very modern bathroom.
