Nice b&b and friendly host who advised us of a local pub where we could take our dog, which had lovely food. Good breakfast and even catered for me as a vegetarian. Nice location as close to seafront so ideal for walking our dog

Passing through Ayr, we booked a room for one night only. Had a ground floor double room with a bathroom built into the corner. Slept well, bed was comfortable and the breakfast which was served to us by the owner’s very friendly and pleasant helper, was good though until we read the menu, we were unaware of the fact that...

Good afternoon. Stayed here with my son for one night stay. But was very disappointed with the way the landlady made me feel. It was like she never enjoyed running the bed and breakfast and she was forced to do so to pay the mortgage. Wasn't made to feel very comfortable nd the lady didn't have a nice manner at...

We stayed two nights here in Ayr. Rooms are spacious and spotless and the breakfast menu is very broad for a B&B. The property has excellent high-speed wifi which is easy to access with the password provided. Service is of a high quality and the location is nice, being only a few minutes from the town centre and about 5...

I’m glad I didn’t read certain Trip Advisor reviews before booking here as it would have put me off what was a lovely place to stay. I stayed here with my partner after our other B&B reservation fell through due to a double booking and it was recommended to us by the owner of the other B&B. The guesthouse is...

The owner was very pleasant and the house is very nicely decorated. We stayed one night in a family room which could sleep four. The breakfast in the morning was excellent with a good choice. It is a short walk to the start of the town centre a d has a good array of shopping.

Owner Mrs. Dunn upon arrival did not greet us rather showed us the room and left. There was no welcoming and nice spirit just a hard hearted person. When attempting to speak to her she mearly walks on by without talking back at all. Also, there is only 1 bathroom to use and if you use any other bathroom because...
