Whether it's a walk to the beach, a visit to Robbies Drams or a wee visit to the our favourite Tam O'Shanter's on the hight street. This is a stone's throw from all. Room was immaculate as expected. Full...

The B&B is easy to find and it seems like it's located in a nice neighbourhood with plenty of room for parking. The room I rent was a family room, it has a double bed and 2 singles, perfect for my family. The ensuite shower room is a big plus... nice and clean. Was so quiet at night so we...

The rooms are comfortable, and perfect for a one night stay. We found that there were parts of the room which were covered in a lot of dust, but everywhere else was clean. The breakfast in the morning was lovely, and my friend enjoyed the sausages most of all. A lot of plates hung on the walls of the dining...

A very comfortable stay so near the CBD and all facilities including the rail station. Everything is 10 minutes away.

Our room was spotless and the bed was most comfortable. Sheila was very welcoming landlady and down to earth. Breakfast was plentiful with lots to choose from. This...

Stayed here for one night as I was in Ayr on business. Very nice place. Landlady was very friendly and welcoming. She made conversation and when she found out I was here on business, she made sure I knew where I was going and how to get there. Room was spacious, well decorated and well equipped with the essentials. Breakfast...
