My husband & I stayed here a few years ago. We had been at the races & rather than travel home we booked this b&b for a few nights. Our room was lovely, clean & spacious. It's situated near all amenities. The owners are so friendly & can't do enough for you

Very clean, homely and great food. Jackie and Billy are great hosts. My son and I were made to feel very welcome. Nothing was too much trouble. The ;great scottish' breakfast was the perfect start to our day's golf.

We had a wonderful stay at Turas-Mara during the Open. The room was very clean and fresh and offered a comfortable bed. The hostes was very service minded and friendly and it's a perfect stay if you go during a weekend to play golf and see the surroundings of South Ayrshire.

From the moment I arrived, Jackie was amazingly welcoming and more than happy to help with anything I needed. I arrived late from the airport but not once was I made to feel that this was an inconvenience to them. The room was immaculate, the bed very comfortable and the en suite stocked with fresh towels and toiletries for my... More
