“Excellent value - friendly owner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 January 2014

Linda was very welcoming. Very large and hot shower. Comfortable room and a lounge downstairs which would have been useful for a longer stay. Excellent porridge for breakfast. I would stay here again. Excellent location - quiet but close to everything.

Room Tip: Quiet location but close to town and beach

This is basically a large old family home. Quiet residential neighborhood and the rooms are large with bath tub and wash clothes and coffee maker. Short cab ride from train. Good breakfast and they had a printer for boarding passes. A plus

We had a bit of a mix up with our booking but that was soon sorted and we settled into our cosy room. We ended up with a twin room but as it was only a place to sleep for one night, that was not a problem.
The beds were comfy, the room was cosy, the shower was wonderful.
Would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a cosy haven when in Ayr. It was warm and welcoming and if we were staying in Ayr again after a function, we would look no further.
We were within walking distance of the town centre but in a quiet location away from the hustle and bustle of Saturday nightlife. We were attending a function in the County Buildings which was only at the end of the road, but we wandered into town beforehand and were there and back in a short walk.

Great hotel, the staff were helpful and even found me some sewing kit to take up the hem on my trousers! Lovely sitting area for a quiet evening read, superb breakfast and cosy, comfortable room.
We were catching up with family in Ayr as well as checking our Burns Monument with friends who had not been to Ayr before. It was central and easy to find our way to everywhere we wanted to go.

Room Tip: Our room was at the back of the hotel and it was quiet and roomy, not overly spacious but perfectly...

Booked at last minute via the Booking.com application on my iPhone. Fabulous room, friendly welcome, lovely breakfast, great location, well appointed, easy parking, close to the town centre and beach. My colleague nearly paid double to stay at the Mercure and regretted his decision. I would definitely stay there again.

My fiance and I booked this hotel at the last minute for a two day getaway.
It is literally a few minutes walk to the beach and near to the town center, very convenient location near everything including the train station.

The hotel itself is lovely, our room was well presented & clean, shower was spacious & spotless.
Little personal touches like the cotton wool buds in the bathroom & the biscuits on the coffee/tea tray were nice too.
Our bed had lots of lovely cushions on it & we both agreed we had the best nights sleep that we'd had in a long time.
Linda made us feel very welcome indeed, she always made time to chat with us & was a lovely host. We would definitely return to this hotel, its great value for money and good for a stress free short break like we had.

Thank you very much for a wonderful stay!

I booked the single room at the Arrandale Hotel in Ayr for just 2 nights and can say that I really enjoyed my stay. The room was clean and comfortable and the owner was warm and welcoming.
I was grateful for the help I had in organising a taxi and for directions around the town. I particularly enjoyed the cooked breakfast each morning. If i was to return to Ayr I would be happy to book there again.
