Diana and Jim provide wonderful hospitality in a superbly renovated house, full of character and warmth. It is both comfortable and welcoming, enhanced by the hosting of Diana and Jim. We will certainly be planning to stay there again.

After flying into Glasgow on a red-eye flight, we drove straight to Irvine and were warmly welcomed at Braidmead House...our first bed and breakfast in Scotland! We chose Braidmead House because it was conveniently located to the Arran Ferry.

Diana greeted us at the door and promptly showed us up to our room, which was very spacious with a loveseat sofa, big screen TV, and recently renovated bathroom. She offered us tea in the sitting room downstairs along with delicious chocolate-covered biscuits and wafers. The bed was extremely comfortable, and the entire guesthouse has the feel of a boutique hotel.

What stood out for us the personal attention from our hosts. Little surprises, like being presented with some mix CD's of Scottish music to enjoy on our trip, made us feel truly WELCOME.

Diana and Jim went out of their way to make it easy to stay and hard to leave. We highly recommend Braidmead House without reservation.

I stay away a lot, and generally try to stay in owner run hotels or b&bs. The friendly welcome is matched by the quality and cleanliness of the house. The owners are attentive without being at all obtrusive. The room was very well equipped and the bed provided a great nights sleep. Breakfast menu provides a choice for anyone, I went for the cooked breakfast which was expertly and individually prepared.

Diana and Jim lived up to their previous accolades, the rooms were comfortable the bathrooms immaculate, and Dianna could not do enough to make you welcome.
