“Quaint, lovely B&B, nice proprieters!”
Reviewed 26 June 2012

We stayed here with my parents and our 17 yr. old son, so we rented 3 rooms. All were lovely, my parents room was downstairs (nice for them not to have to haul luggage upstairs), lovely room! Our room was upstairs and had a nice vanity, very comfortable twin beds, nice furnishings. Our son had his own room with a nice bathroom. Because they didn't have a family room available they didn't charge us for the room our son stayed in. That was unexpected and very much appreciated. The young woman who checked us in couldn't have been sweeter!! She was so helpful, kind and accomodating! We met the owner, Linda, the next morning and told her what a lovely stay we had and what a gem of an employee she had in the nice young woman who checked us in. They made us feel like family and we couldn't imagine a more pleasant stay!

When my partner and I booked in everything seemed fine, the lady called Linda was very charming and pleasant. Although that is where it ended. The bedroom - decor wise, was OK for the price, but as i work in the hotel industry myself i felt the standard was very low. i do not believe dirty sheets with stains that are some what to be desired and someone else's make-up on the pillow is exceptable. Also the hotel was FREEZING! we were cold all night in our room, the heating didnt even seem to be on! The bar was closed all day/night and when we went to the reception desk a few times to ask for help and guidence - nobody was around and even shouting Hello didnt seem to wake them up! also, how are us ladies meant to do our hair with one mirror on the wall at one side of the room and plugs at the other?! Very poor. would not stay again

called up to book and asked if it would be ok to get access to a microwave on 1 occassion on the stay to sterelise my newborn babys bottles on the stay. my baby tarted crying whilst i was on the phone so i passed my baby to my partner and just as i did the lady called 'linda' who i was speaking to me hung up the phone on me. tried to call back straight away and the phone rang out. as you will have guessed i never booked. SO MUCH FOR FAMILY FRIENDLY! DO NOT RECOMMEND!!!!! she obviously cant stand hearing a baby cry.

Reviewed 8 July 2011

room was dated with dirty sheets that didn't get changed in three nights nor did the carpets get hoovered. The bedspread and curtains where dirty and stained. The bedspread almost certainly doesn;t get laundered each time guests leave. bathroom was tiny. no bath, the door had broken off the shower cubicle and had been replaced with a curtain that didn't reach the floor and let water leak if the shower head pointed the wrong way, the towel ring fell off the wall. Breakfast was hot yet minimal. The bar was there but never opened all weekend. All in all this is a b&b not a hotel. The welcome was warm and friendly and the service at breakfast was swift. beware if you like to lie in as breakfast is only served between 8am and 9am. Check in isn't until 14.30 although check out is much earlier. The £60 per room per night plus £7 per person for breakfast it is definitely way over priced.

This hotel is in a great location,and has great potential,but,there were some problems
a lack of ready HOT WATER being one of them
Ayr itself is a really nice town and well worth a visit

I have always been a fan of tripadvisor and they're candid reviews but having read the last couple on this hotel I have to say I totally disagree with them. This place is a truly hidden gem, if your looking for the corporate brand where they're out to screw every penny out of you and treat you like cattle then stay elsewhere, this has the charming independent feel and the hosts are one of the nicest, kindest people I have ever met who certainly go out their way to make your stay enjoyable.For what you get its a steal at the price they charge!!
