“Fantastic Spring Holiday”
Reviewed 7 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

As a family we have stayed in numerous holiday cottages over the years,we have had some good and bad experiences. All I can say is the quality of this accommodation is second to none . Shirley the owner was very efficient with the booking process and upon arrival the wine and home cooked bread was a lovely thought. The bungalow itself is presented to a very high standard and I would be hard pressed to have any negative comments. Would certainly recommend this as a fantastic base to explore the South West of Scotland. Trip Droid.

“Magical Start to our Wedding Weekend”
Reviewed 18 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

I booked Alloway Retreat for my pre wedding accommodation, as the location and size of the property was perfect (only a 2 minute drive to our wedding at the Brig O' Doon House Hotel). I live in Edinburgh and was looking for somewhere spacious and comfortable to accommodate me and my two bridesmaids the night before the wedding.

Initially when I found out there was a minimum two night stay I was disappointed, as I was only looking for somewhere to stay the night before the wedding. However, it actually worked out really well as it meant that my future husband and I got the chance to stay there on the first night before my bridesmaids joined me on the second night.

It states on their website that it's a luxury bungalow and this is most certainly the case. From the moment we stepped into the property we both absolutely loved it; it's very well presented with nice finishes throughout. As we were staying here on the lead up to our wedding Shirley and Paul very kindly left us a wedding card, bottle of wine and some freshly baked bread, which was a very nice touch and a great start to our stay.. The kitchen is well equipped and the lounge areas very comfortable. The property is well situated with easy access to Ayr and other local amenities.

The entire process from booking to getting our refundable deposit back was very easy and straightforward. The owners (Shirley & Paul) were very friendly and extremely helpful. They're usual check out time is 11am but since our wedding was at 1.30pm they were very accommodating and kindly agreed that I could stay at the bungalow until my wedding car collected me at 1.20pm.

I couldn't have imagined a better start to our wedding weekend; it really was fantastic.

To summarize:
-Superb accommodation.
-Very good value for money.
-Easy to book and owners are very helpful.
-Would definitely recommend.
