Lovely accommodation, breakfast extremely filling with plenty of choice. The room was cleaned every day, size was prefect for 3 of us and the daily supply of home made shortbread was excellent and staff were very friendly. Only reason we did not give 5 stars was the room was very hot at night even with the radiators off.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at bythesea in Ayr. We stayed on the top floor, which is three stories up. The owners helped us carry our luggage. Our room was spacious. We had a very comfortable bed and our own bathroom with a nice shower. However, the best part of our experience was the breakfast. I ordered eggs Benedict and... More

We contacted the owner as the heating wasn't on and he came to sort it out straight away. The room we... More

I didn't book this guesthouse myself, my company did. What a great find. Lovely people, great room, warm and comfortable with an enormous bed. Little desk for me to work from. Breakfast was amazing and only a little walk to the town centre. Will definitely use Bythesea again.
