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.

We came over to Ayr for a day to see the city and surroundings for the Christmas holidays. We booked a superior room on the second floor with a nice street view. The owner was very helpful and gave a good advice on the places to visit and restaurants to dine in. The room we stayed in would be liked... More

Found the Burnside Guest House while searching TripAdvisor. Found out Liz had a room available for our stay. It was FABULOUS! Rooms are neatly appointed and Liz is a wonderful owner. She is not only helpful, but chats with her guests as time permits during her morning cooking duties. Burnside is close to the sea, and within walking distance to... More

This was our second visit to The Burnside Guest House. Liz is very helpful, great cook and the rooms were kept spotless. We would recommend this to anyone looking for a lovely place to stay, near the beach and short walk to main part of the town.

This is our 2nd visit to the Burnside Guest House. Liz the owner couldn't be more helpful and she makes you feel right at home. The rooms are spotless and very comfortable with lots of nice touches. The breakfasts are excellent. Ideally situated just 2 minutes from the seafront and just a short walk into Ayr town centre. We highly... More

We unfortunately arrived on a 45 degree, 40mph windy day in August. IT WAS COLD. We walked into town for lunch then spent the rest of the day in the room. The room was great with a king sized bed, very comfortable, the room was very clean and the bathroom roomy. The host was very welcoming, gave us a permit... More
