Lovely

It wasn't a very nice day, cold and wet, when we visited but the gardens would be lovely to sit in on a warm sunny day.

You have to visit this place after visiting the museum, it compliments the museum visit. Great place and location. Not sure the kids like it, especially young ones.

A beautiful and peaceful garden next to a lovely hotel. There are plenty of benches to sit and contemplate the surroundings!

It should be a part of any daily tour of visiting Ayr and Alloway. It is in a walk distance from other tourist attractions in Alloway and it should not be missed. Recommend it to everyone.

Lovely walk through beautiful gardens and plenty of seating for meditation! It was a lovely sunny day so we hit at the right time. This also is within walking distance of Burns Cottage and Museum.

A number of artifacts about Robert Burns but it was a bit boring if you didn't know the man. The cottage where he was born seemed a bit soulless. Alright if you are NT member, otherwise a bit expensive to take guests.

Great staff, super food, good toilets, great location near to all Burns related sites. Didn't visit museum but of you're into Burns sure it must be worth checking out.
