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

Excellent stay, lovely friendly landlady. The breakfast was superb. The room was very well equipped with lots of individual touches. The house is well situated for the town centre and the beach. I would definitely recommend this guest house.

We stayed at the Burnside as a family of four for two nights at the start of our pilgrimage to the commonwealth games and Liz and her staff put in a gold medal winning performance! From the superbly appointed family room to the excellent breakfasts and the advice and tips for the local area we couldn't fault the Burnside in... More

Top class Scottish hospitality from Liz who was very welcoming, informative and helpful. The accommodation was very comfortable, spotless and convenient for local attractions. We spent six nights at the Burnside whilst visiting local attractions and the Commonwealth Games. We had one very early start to get to Glasgow on the train and Liz provided us with a delicious packed... More

We only had one day in Ayr as I was researching my family history there. We couldn't have picked a more lovely B&B. Liz was an amazing host. The room we had was spotless, spacious and beautiful. Breakfast was amazing, with every choice imaginable (enjoyed the kippers)! Liz was so helpful in recommending places to eat, see, whatever. Very gracious.... More

My husband and I brought our 21 month old toddler to the seaside for a 5 days holiday and we are so glad we chose this guest house as our base. The room was a good size and we had the option of a travel cot or a single bed for the wee one and we had our own private... More
