The room, toilet and shower was exceedingly small, however the bed was comfortable and the room very clean.
Basic but great value
I booked Ivydean for two nights.
The room had a comfortable bed and adequate ensuite. It would have been nice to have a more comfortable chair to sit in, but otherwise the accommodation was basic but fine. Breakfast was also fine, although served in the bar of the hotel on the other side of a main road - not so good when it's raining. Service was friendly and efficient and overall, my stay was great value for money.
Good value for money
Clean ensuite room, friendly hosts, great breakfast.
Ideal location for train station (note that it is Newtown on Ayr station and not Ayr which is only a few minutes away)
OK for the price, not outstanding
It was ok for the price we paid.
When we arrived, there wasn't anyone in the B&B, so we got the keys in the hotel across the street, which was fine. The inside was clean, so was the room we stayed in. The shared bathroom was, however, quite hairy, which was a bit repulsive, but for the low price of the room, this was something we could live with for 1 night. There was a sink in the bedroom, so the actual shared bathroom could be used minimally, for the toilet only. The facilities in the room were fine, although they could do with some newer bedding. But again, price was low, so it was ok. All in all, it was alright for the price, but there was an odd atmosphere to the place. There was a sign saying "no vacancies" on the window when we arrived, and oddly enough, it seemed like we were the only people staying there that night (there was no noise coming from the other two rooms, and since all guest rooms were cramped together on one floor, we definitely would have known if there was someone else there). For someone who is on a budget like we were, this would be fine. However, I would not stay there again personally.
Would certainly return.
Nice people and good value for money
Everything about Ivy Dean was summed up with the 'For Sale' sign which greeted us.
A thorough clean (paintwork, kettle), new mattresses, a rethink on the layout, tiny sink in a huge bathroom are some of the things that need addressing.
the accommodation and meal was faboulus
Greeted very well very friendly could not have wished for anything better.
Wish the couple all the luck for the future .
