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.

Jackie and Billy are excellent hosts. We have been visiting Turas-Mara for over 5 years now, and the hospitality received is, and always has been, of the highest standard. Very comfortable rooms and wonderful breakfasts.

Friendly and very comfortable with a good breakfast. They even had dairy free spread for my daughter to use. Lots of complimentary tea, coffee and biscuits in the room. Great location too, straight across the road from a Morrison's and a ten minute walk to the beach.

My husband & I stayed here a few years ago. We had been at the races & rather than travel home we booked this b&b for a few nights. Our room was lovely, clean & spacious. It's situated near all amenities. The owners are so friendly & can't do enough for you
