We stayed for a few days in Harris Apt in Ayr. The location is great - not too far to walk into town especially taking the back road at the Citadel Leisure Centre. The view across the sea to Arran was fabulous, especially lucky enough to see spectacular sunsets. The team at Donnini were very helpful checking that we managed to follow instructions that they emailed to us. We found it much better than checking into a hotel giving us more freedom. Recommended.

We had a great stay at Donnini Apartments. Service was great from start to finish. We somehow managed to book the wrong date and they could not have been more accommodating - we really appreciated all their help. Apartment was spotlessly clean and very spacious/ comfortable. A lovely view from the living room to the sea! Just ideal. We will definitely be contacting The Donnini Team again should we be heading back to Ayr. Thank you for being such superb hosts!

I was staying in the area to visit family, and for some business at the same time. I'd stayed locally at local hotels, but they all were quite dated. Stepping into this apartment, it was stylish and immaculately clean. The view of the beach is uninterrupted - and just adds to the peaceful feeling. The design is contemporary, and is equipped for everything you could need for a stay - long or short. The friendly support from Amy - before, during and after my stay was brilliant. The location is excellent - a few minutes from shops, restaurants and seconds from the beach and Ayr pier. I will definitely be looking to stay here again, and would highly recommend Donnini.

We stayed in Ayr at the Donnini Apartments as a family taking our new granddaughter to visit her great grandmother in Ardrossan. The apartments were just the answer for a family in a great location with a super view of the sea. Unfortunately we did not have the time to look around Ayr on this occasion but looking forward to doing that on our next visit. We had one or two issues which were dealt with courteously and quickly during our stay, they certainly look after you before, during and after your stay. Would highly recommend.

Stayed here for the airshow with my husband and 2 boys. What an amazing apartment! Spotlessly clean, comfortable and has a homely touch. Great location, able to see all the aircraft on display without the crowd noise! Clear and concise communication from the owner who answered all questions without feeling like we were bothering him! Just perfect.

The apartment is located right on the coast with great views over the bay. It is also within easy walking distance to the town centre and transport links. The apartment was spotless with everything you need for your stay. I was also very impressed with the management staff. They could not have been more helpful. Our party also liked a good restaurant called Willie Wastles. Good food at good prices. I know if I am ever looking for somewhere to stay in Ayr, Donnini will be my first port of call.
