“Best B & B in UK”
Reviewed 16 May 2011

We planned to stay in Ayr one night only but were so delighted with the service and the quality of the accommodation we arranged to come back and stay an extra night, even though it meant doubling back on our travels. Michael and Joyce were such wonderful hosts and provided a very early breakfast on the second morning so we could leave at 7.00am. Their recommendations on local restauarants were spot on and Michael investigated the best route for us to travel to Nottingham.
Of the many B & Bs we have stayed in UK this we rated the best and was not expensive, considering it is 5-star rated, justifiably.

Right from the off we were delighted with the welcome we got from Mike as he invited us into his gorgeous home. Our room was very well laid out with lovely decor, and a level of cleanliness we've rarely seen. Coffee and tea making facilities were welcome and the bathroom was laid out with all the towels and toiletries we needed. The location of 26 The crescent is possibly one of the best within Ayr as the town centre is only a few minutes walk away with lots of places to eat and drink within the same distance. a cinema is only a few minutes walk away, and there are plenty of opportunities nearby to shop, or even just browse. There is parking provided by the B & B's own permit right outside the building. After we had an amazingly peaceful night of sleep in the luxurious bed, we found our way to the very homely dining room where there was an array of fresh fruit juices, and breakfast cereals for us to choose before we had probably the best cooked breakfast we've ever had! Altogether, our stay was very comfortable and the service we received was, welcoming, friendly, and very cheery. we look forward to spending another stay at 26 the crescent very soon!

We spent a splended two night stay with Joyce and Michael at The Cresent. The standard of service they provided was first class and our room spotlessly clean and comfortable. We had a great breakfast that was freshly cooked and with a quality selection of cereals, fruit juices, teas and coffees. The Cresent is situated in a quiet cherry tree lined road that were in full bloom at the end of April and is close to the seaside and town centre alike. Although our stay was a short we left with the feeling that we were leaving old friends behind and promised that when we needed to stay in Ayr again, we would be staying at The Cresent with Jojce and Michael.

3rd time we' ve stayed at this hotel and it just seems to get better. Situated on a quiet crescent but within a short walking distance to the town centre shopping , bars and restaurants. The long stretch of beach is only a short stroll away too. A warm welcome always greets you from Mike and Joyce. The rooms are superb, and the breakfasts are a great start to the day. The guest's lounge makes your stay feel like home from home. We' ve already booked for next year, which seems to be the norm with most of the other guests we' ve met. Thanks again from Billy and Cheryl

I am a solo female business traveller and booked this hotel for a stay of 8 nights whilst I has working in Ayr.
I would highly recommended this hotel to anyone who is looking to stay in Ayr.

The B&B oozes charm and high quality interiors, and is impeccably clean, which is more than I can say for most up-market hotels.

My room was spacious and comfortable with an en-suite shower and bath with complimentary Arran Aromatic toiletries, Highland Spring water etc.

The owners can not do enough for you. They are the perfect hosts and make you feel really welcome.

The breakfasts are extremely hearty and there is a very good choice from fresh fruit salad, to a full Scottish breakfast.

My only regret is that I did not book into the Four-Poster bedroom which is absolutely divine - with a very large en-suite bathroom. (The owners let me have a look around it during my stay).

Parking for this B&B is on-street parking outside the hotel, which I never had a problem with as spaces were always available.

Just a short 5 minute stroll and you are in the centre of Ary.

I would highly recommend this B&B to anyone wishing to stay in Ayr and would definately stay here again.

nb. The Ellisland is the best place to dine in Ayr, really good high end restaurant food at very competitive prices.

Room Tip: Book the Four-Poster Room, it is worth the extra £
