We were delighted with the accommodations--the room was large, quite, and airy, and the ensuite bathroom was spacious and modern. The central location was perfect for a walking tour of central Ayr, and conveniently close to the train station. Jackie... More

We had a very comfortable stay at Turas Mara and were mde to feel very wecome by Jackie on arrival. The room was well equipped, light and airy, very homely and very clean. The homemade pancakes for breakfast were superb and the location in Ayr was perfect too. Would definitely stay again.

Warm and friendly welcome and excellent twin room accommodation. Extra nice touches such as mints and guest soap bars in addition to the liquid variety. 5 minutes walk to railway station and town centre. Good breakfast with plenty of variety. Landlady recommended a restaurant for an evening meal and telephoned to make a reservation. No hesitation in recommending this guest... More

Same warm welcome, immaculate accommodation and epic breakfast as always: only difference this time is that I was promoted to a big double bed all to myself. Perhaps Jackie is taking pity on me due to my advancing years and saving me from the effort of climbing the stairs ....
