“Haste Ye Back”
Reviewed 14 April 2014

Well folks, I went back to 26 The Crescent ,Ayr ,and this time we stayed for 2 nights. Now for a 5* , and the only 5* accommodation in Ayr, I thought it would be hard to make it better, but, when we arrived on the Friday 28th March 2014, Michael said we had been upgraded !, I thought How can this get better than last year ?. We were shown to a room that was spacious, tastefully decorated & furnished & with none other than a 4 poster bed with all the trimmings & a bathroom that was easily the size of some of the pokey rooms you get in big corporate hotels. You can't get better than this for the money and the 2 best hosts in the West of Scotland & the best breakfast you'll ever have in Scotland with a warm welcome to boot. Folks your throwing your money away ,if you want luxury & a great Scottish welcome when you visit Ayr ,this is the place to go .....Its a NO BRAINER !

We were recommended to use this hotel, and it lived up to its reputation. Easy to find, on-street parking might be a problem when the town is busy, but not on this occasion. Spotless room, well supplied, and a magnificent breakfast. Will definitely use it again if in the area. Thanks to Joyce and Michael.

My boyfriend and I stayed early March 2014 for two nights. Michael and Joyce were such lovely hosts. The porridge was delicious and I've craved it ever since! We felt very comfortable and couldn't have had a better stay. Luckily we were visiting family, which means we'll definitely be coming back.

Thank you.

We stayed in room 5, for 1 night in March 2014.
Pros- Lovely house, very clean and Michael is a great host.
Cons- While room 5 is a good size, the TV is tiny, and the sloping ceiling in the en- suite can result in a few head knocks, biggest disappointment is the lack of a shower.
Breakfast : Good choice of cereals, fresh fruit etc, we had the porridge
It was ok, but a bit on the salty side and more of a smooth pasty consistency.
The smoked haddock & poached egg was very nice.
