Fantastic hospitality, clean, comfy, great breakfast...short walk from train, great price!

Jackie & Billy have got it right in Ayr, Scotland. With children grown & gone, they converted their extra space for a guest house with all rooms having "en suite" (that's a bathroom in each room for us Americans). Our room was a family room with double, single, and rollaway single all for 65pounds a night! Breakfast was included & fantastic...your choice of Jackie & Billy's hot cooked fare or the cereals, fruits, yogurts available. We had plenty of eggs, bacon (more like ham in US), pancakes, potato scones (yum!), fruit, cereal, hot drinks! yum! my mouth is watering just typing this review! :) Jackie will even make you a sandwich & soup at the end of the day if you don't want to go out.

From Ayr we visited Robert Burns Heritage Park & Culzean Castle...using the bus....quite a feat to accomplish, but we made it! Make sure you're on the correct side of the street to catch your bus...they post the schedule on both sides, but it only runs on one side! Google maps will easily give you bus routes you can follow. Culzean Castle is not to be missed if you're in the area...plan for a whole day as the grounds are extensive, lots of walking! Gorgeous, though.

My wife and I were lucky to get a late booking here on Saturday 19th june as we were going to Ayr races. Jackie & Billy sound a typical down to earth Scottish couple and would go out of their way to make you welcome. the guest house was spotlessly clean,bed extremely comfortable and breakfast probably the best in Ayr.I;ve been to several hotels and guest houses around Ayr and easily rate this the best,you truly won;t be disappointed.

We stayed at A'Turas-Mara in May 2010 and were delighted with the warm and friendly welcome we received. Our room was cosy and full of quaint charm, very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was delicious and our hosts, Jackie and Billy, were very helpful with suggestions for dinner, wifii connection and GPS directions. Even though our room faced onto a main road through the town, we were not disturbed by traffic noise at all. We were able to walk to everything from the B&B.
