Excellent B & B. Walking distance to beach at Ayr. Rooms and food was excellent. Liz was a great host and we much appreciate her help with our trip to Scotland from Vancouver, BC Canada. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting this area.

Liz was wonderful in welcoming us to Burnside. She not only suggested a restaurant in the town where my sister and I were trafing our family tree, but she also called to make reservations for us. Although the room wasn't large, it was comfortable and perfect for us. We had a varied choice for breakfast...the fresh baked bread and marmalade... More

Just spend 10 days in the Burnside flat rental. Location was excellent and flat was very well appointed. Liz (owner) was very helpful with local suggestions. The flat had everything we could need and we spent a a wonderful vacation doing day trips from Ayr.

We are a group of eight golfers who planned well ahead of time to spend six nights at the Burnside Guest House, and we were very pleased. The rooms were clean, attractive and well-appointed. The breakfasts were delicious and there were plenty of choices available. The location is excellent, short walks to good restaurants and pubs, and a ten minute... More

Seven of my golf buddies and I stayed at the Burnside and absolutely loved the accommodations and the service provided by Liz Drysdale for our week in Ayr. No issues whatsoever excellent customer service and a worry free experience. I would highly recommend a stay at the Burnside without any doubt of you having a great experience. Dan Stewart USA

This guest house is 1 street away from the beachfront, meaning the room we had gave us a sea view. We were issued with a parking permit on arrival. Landlady was lovely, room was very tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was also lovely - pre chosen the night before meant it was freshly ready for us in the morning.

My husband and I immensely enjoyed our one-night stay at the Burnside Guest House. When we arrived after a 15-minute walk from the train station, Liz, the owner, answered the door on our ring and made a fresh pot of tea for us while we waited in her cozy sitting room briefly until our clean and comfortable room was ready....

A very comfortable guest house well run by Liz. Close to sandy beach and also close to the town. Reasonable walk from the railway station. Comfortable bed, and a wonderful breakfast. Nothing was too much trouble.
