An excellent location for us as we were down for a friends wedding at Brig o Doon which, as it was just down the road it meant we could walk back at the end of the night. Kirsten did a great fry up in the morning at any time we wanted (was much needed with slight hangovers) which set us... More

We stayed at Sherwood on our way through the area, and wished we had stayed longer. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The room was large, modern, very tidy and we appreciated the lovely homely touches throughout. Breakfast was pleasant and the owners were very attentive to our needs. We had our own bathroom which was lovely, great shower!

I booked the Sherwood for my daughter and her partner as they were attending a wedding at the Brig O Doon. They absolutely loved it. Fantastic hosts in Kirsten and her husband, a beautiful and immaculate room, and delicious breakfast. Location perfect. We have already highly recommended this little gem to our friends and family.

We only had one night here but are planning to return. Everything is comfortable and immaculately clean. So handy to everything - cute cafe The Secret Garden and great gastropub within a five minute walk and all the big name golfclubs an easy drive away.

Having had a recent business trip to Ayr I decided to avoid the usual B&Bs/ hotels and I was pleasantly surprised. The new owners have opened their home to paying guests and it is an absolute delight. Couldn't fault the place or the service and future business trips will be spent here.
