Daviot House is a family run Visit Scotland 4 * Guesthouse situated in the heart of Ayr.
A warm, friendly and relaxed atmosphere welcomes you to Daviot House courtesy of Linda, Richard, Orla and our 2 well behaved Labradors Bo and Buddy. Year on year we are awarded a trip advisor Certificate of Excellence.
At Daviot House we are one of the few pet friendly establishments in the area. As we have two of our own furry friends we understand how difficult it can be to have a break without them. Well behaved dogs are welcome at Daviot House. We know all the best walks in the local area. Please feel free to ask and we will be happy to advise where to exercise and toilet your dog.
We pride ourselves on providing a “Home from Home” get away, where guests can relax, recharge and enjoy all that Ayr and the surrounding area has to offer. We are well known for our hearty breakfasts which can be requested at the property at an additional charge. (NB – due to COVID restriction we have temporarily suspended offering breakfast. This is being continually reviewed and we hope to be back up and running very soon.)
Daviot House is a Grade B listed building, which is over 140 years old and retains several original features. Our central location allows guests to access Ayr’s beautiful, sandy beach, river walk, the local shopping centres, bars and restaurants. All of these are accessible by foot within minutes.
Ayrshire, on the south west coast of Scotland has always been a popular short break destination. Our stunning coastline, and golden sandy beaches, are also popular destinations for locals and visitors to the area. For the romantic, our sunsets are amongst some of the most beautiful in the world and as a traditional sea side town, children are well catered for with an indoor play area for wet days, a large outdoor play area, crazy golf and lots of ice cream vendors on hand.
Across the water from Ayr’s golden beach is the stunning Isle of Arran. A short ferry crossing from Ardrossan to Brodick, Arran has many offerings for walkers and climbers, cyclists, whiskey enthusiasts and Castle baggers to name but a few.
Ayrshire also boasts Culzean Castle and Dumfries House. Both architecturally stunning buildings with fascinating histories and extensive grounds to enjoy a full day’s entertainment. And of course, Ayrshire cannot be mentioned without thought of Robert Burns our National Bard, whose history can be explored at the Robert Burns visitor centre and Burns cottage in Alloway.
