We have just been back to this fabulous bed and breakfast. The welcome received is second to none.fantastic choice for breakfast. Rooms spotlessly clean and again nothing was too much trouble. Highly recommended.

We had a great stay at the Daviot and would highly recommend staying there . Our room with ensuite was really spotless, there was a wide selection to choose from for breakfast and the 2 breakfasts we had were delicious. All in all we had a very enjoyable stay at the Daviot and will definatly be stayin again .

We stayed here for 1 night this week. This was our 1st visit to this b & b.

We had selected the double room with the private external bathroom. This was chosen based on eartlier reviews of this bedroom. The bathroom was for our use only and we had a key for access. It is a very large bathroom with a good sized shower (no bumping elbows against the shower screen!). The bedroom is lovely and hanging on the back of the door is a robe in case you wish to hide your modesty when going to the bathroom. Also in the bedroom is a small fridge - very handy during this gloriously hot spell. There are the usual tea and coffee facilities but also a cafietere for 'proper' coffee, a bottle of water, biscuits and a small dish of sweets.

The b & b is spotlessly clean.

The selection for breakfast is excellent and the food is really good and lots of it.

Both the owner and the staff who booked us in were very friendly and helpful.

The location is ideal, minutes from the beach and also from the town.

All in all, an ideal place to stay and we hope to be back.

Our room was two floors up, but what a view! Our room was very inviting, including tartan on the headboard and bed throw! The bathroom was spacious and well appointed. Many breakfast choices ended our stay. Highly recommend this B&B

This was a last minute break, and the first for a long time we have stayed in a small independent and without a doubt we will be back.

The welcome when we arrived was first class, we had a first hand tour of the hotel and facilities. We were a bit unsure, having booked the one room without an ensuite, however the adjacent bathroom was exclusively for our room use and big enough to be considered an extra room.

The bedroom was well furnished and very comfortable as well as having a fridge which kept our drinks nice and cool,along with real coffee as part of the refreshments in the room.

Breakfast was fantastic it could not be faulted,nothing asked for was too much trouble.

The location is directly opposite petes pirate palace on the seafront, and a short walk to the town centre.

On value for money, the quality and location I haven't seen bettered in a long time. It matches the best of hotels we have stayed in.

Thanks for a great weekend.

Changed Venue and Town at the last moment as the concert we were going to in Edinburgh was cancelled, so what better than a wee trip to Lovely Ayr and the Daviot Guest House.Apart from the large amount of stairs to climb when we got to our room all was just perfect superbly laid out with enormous bathroom wonderfully soft towels and nice soaps,tea and coffee and all the nice wee bits were on hand. Silvios breakfast menu is superb you can virtually have what you want. The Daviot is 2 minutes to the sea front and 5-10 minutes to the centre of town, a great Guest house well worth its 4 star rating we will certainly be back.Thankyou.

We stayed here for 1 night and it was excellent!! We paid £55 for the night b&b, great value for money! Initially I was concerned when I realised we didnt have an en-suite. We had a key for a separate bathroom which was huge!!! It was metres from our room so we werent concerned at all and it was actually a bit of an advantage as the room was a great size!! The bed was really comfy and the owners really have thought of everything you need for an enjoyable stay!. The location itself is excellent, 1 minute walk to the beach. We had fantastic weather when we visited so it was lovely to get up early and have a wee stroll down to the beach before breakfast. Talking of which, breakfast was great!! There are plenty of choices and you submit your order the night before. I chose eggs benedict, which is my absolute favourite! It was lovely, worth visiting for the breakfast alone!! We're frequent visitors to Ayr and have stayed at many B&B's in the area, but I have to say, this is my new favourite!! We'll definately be back!!!
