Jackie and Billy are lovely people nothing was too much for them very nice guesthouse. Room was very clean and tidy. Excellent breakfast in the morning always asking if you needed anymore. Ample parking at rear of guesthouse or on street which they provided a parking permit. Would not hesitate to book again next time in Ayr.

Friendly owners. Rooms great size and fresh. Breakfast choice is superb. Location very central to amenities. 5 mins from train station and town centre directly facing Morrisons. Entry in and out very accessible and a luggage hold on check out available for last minute shopping..!!! Would highly recommend.

Have stayed here on quite a few occasions and the overall hospitality from Jackie&Billy is first class from the fantastic rooms to a superb breakfast and the location to all amenities is also spot on. .

I travel a lot on business and always look for smaller properties where I can feel part of the "family", rather than another impersonal box-like hotel. A'Turas-Mara is only 3 rooms, very friendly service from Jackie and Billy and breakfasts to die for. My room (both trips) was large with a comfortable bed and a generous en-suite bathroom (walk in...

What a lovely place. It is fantastically placed for the train, morrisons across the road and a short walk to pubs and restaurants. Jackie and Billy who own it are really nice, friendly and very welcoming, nothing is a problem and the brekkie was super. Will definitely be coming back.

Stayed here for a wee break away for one night. Looking at the reviews it seemed ideal, close to the town centre, clean and what I value ..Off street parking. Upon arrival it became clear the off street parking was going to be a problem, big enough for two cars (three at a push), and two cars already in there,...

Jackie and Billy are a charm !! Everything was perfect there from A to Z. Grocery store just in front, train station just 5 minutes on foot. I felt home there ;) Like I was staying at my mom's place :) And they really went the extra mile for me !! I hired a bike to go to Galloway Forest...

I've stayed here 2 times now, and booked the next stay. This is a great B&B. Nice room, perfect breakfast, friendly people. And very friendly price! Good location close to train station, town centre and beach. I can recommend this B&B to everyone who is looking for a good B&B in Ayr.

Immaculately clean, tastefully decorated, adequately heated. 6 min walk or 2 min taxi ride from Ayr train station. You can walk to Morrisons in 5 mins and to the town centre in 10 mins. We arrived late (midnight) and Jackie waited up for us! Lovely customised hot vegetarian breakfast with cereal and filter coffee :) All necessities (towels, loo roll,...
