“Amazing house and hospitality to match”
Reviewed 24 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Stayed at the house with a group of friends for a weekend at the races. The pictures do not do the house justice, it truly is amazing. Every room is very spacious and beautifully decorated. What made the stay special and memorable was the hospitality, Margaret was absolutely fantastic. I hope to stay at the house again very soon.

“Absolutely Excellent!”
Reviewed 18 April 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We booked this house for a family get-away for my husbands 50th Birthday. There was 13 of us in total including children.

On arrival we were greeted by the lovely owner Margaret who warmly welcomed us to her fabulous home.

I have rated this property a 5* and it most certainly is!! The bedrooms are all large and simply amazing! We stayed for 3 nights and ate in every night, the kitchen is huge and there was more than enough plates, glasses etc for everyone.

We would highly recommend this property to others and hope to return in the future.

The personal touches of the owner for our celebrations were much appreciated also.

“Fantastic House and Host!!!!”
Reviewed 14 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

person found this review helpful

We stayed in The White House for a long weekend to celebrate my 50th birthday. The host Margaret went above and beyond all expectations, she supplied us with a breakfast pack, had a cake made for me and gave me a birthday gift. The house itself is stunning and the photos do not do it justice. We arrived on the Friday evening and were met by Margaret, who gave us a tour of the house which was all lit up, warm and cosy. She left us her number so if we needed anything we were just to phone her, not many owners do that. The rooms were spacious and tastefully decorated, there was bathrobes in each room and a hairdryer! The views outside were absolutely gorgeous and the Hollybush Inn was 5-10 minutes walk away, what more could you want? I certainly would book this house again and will recommend it to family and friends.

“Ideal for a relaxing holiday away from home.”
Reviewed 11 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

I have just returned after celebrating my friends 50th birthday with another 10 ladies from this beautiful house. We were welcomed by Margaret the owner of the house and could not believe the bother that she had went too to make us so welcome ,including freshly made strawberry Pavlova which went down a treat (can you send the recipe Margaret ?) also the well stocked fridge, freezer and cupboards.This house was ideal for a large amount of adults as it had so much space indoors and outdoors. We visited the Hollybush Inn pub/restaurant which was a short walk away which served lovely food and the staff were very pleasant. We would also like to thank Derek for his help over the weekend.

“Wow, fabulous host and house”
Reviewed 24 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

Our family, 13 of us, stayed at the White House for new year and it exceeded all our expectations! The house definitely has the wow factor , even more so with all the Christmas decorations, and the furnishings in all rooms are beautiful. What sets this apart from other accomodation is the host, Margaret, a hostess unparalleled in our experience! She provided strawberry Pavlovas from Troon! A full breakfast of sausages, Lorne sausage, bacon, black pudding, eggs ( yes for all 13!) and the cupboard was very well stocked with tea, coffees sauces etc. There was wine and juice in the fridge, chocolates in all the bedrooms, presents for the 4 children under the tree! On Hogmanay Margaret popped over with wine, whiskey and a piece of coal! We went for walks by the river doon and also went to the hollybush inn for a lovely meal. You are in the centre of Ayr in less than 10 mins driving, it is ideal. I cannot recommend the house highly enough and if you are looking to book, do it, you won't regret it!
