Unfortunately I had to cut my stay short but the time I was there was great. Very friendly environment.

Tips:

I used to live in Ayr and was there to catch up with friends. I would always recommend Ayr as a place to stay as I love it there. The Fox and Willow is one of my favourite places to eat. Blackburn Villa B and B was perfect, near the beach and a short walk into town. Just brilliant.

Blackburn Villa is a home from home place to stay . Inviting and comfortable. Karen makes a Braw breakfast.

Tips:

Within walking distance to the beach and the town centre as well as other amenities and still situated within a quiet residential area. Hotels only 2/3 mins in each direction where you can eat and 15/20 min walk into town centre where there are cafe’s and restaurants.

I visit the Blackburn Villa every year and love it, my daughter loves the layout of the villa and the gardens. The location is great, 2min walk to the beach and a 10 min walk to the shops and restaurants. The B&B itself always has a lovely welcome from Karen, always clean and everything you need is within the rooms. Breakfast is made to order and fantastic. I will be returning next year again.

This is a very homely and welcoming B&B in a quiet residential area. The proprietor was lovely. She asked what time we wanted breakfast & what we’d prefer. During breakfast she took great delight in looking after our nosey dog. We kept the dog on the lead at all times, which she really appreciated - as did her cats! She gave us a local map and told us the best places to walk. We hope to return.

Tips:

The beach is a stone’s throw away. It is fabulous. Whether you walk north or south there was loads of sandy beach. Across the Millennium Bridge is a pleasant walk to Greenan Castle.

We had a super stay here. Blackburn Villa is very well maintained and has a lovely garden to relax in as well as a sun lounge. The ensuite bedroom was very comfortable. Karen goes out of her way to be helpful and she has added in small things which make the stay better as there is a supply of extra glasses, tea, coffee etc in the hall and also a fridge with small bottles of milk. The fridge is free to use too. There was a good choice for breakfast and it was nicely cooked and served. Blackburn Villa is a place we would definitely return to if we needed another overnight in Ayr.

Loved staying at this excellent accommodation. Karen the owner, was very warm and friendly, and couldn’t do enough for her guests. Felt like a real home from home, wished we’d stayed longer. Would definitely go back.

Tips:

Plenty of good restaurants and pubs locally, Karen had details available. Beach just down the road, lots to do and see. We went for a long weekend, attending a wedding and visiting family, so didn’t have chance to see much ourselves, but a good excuse to go back. The scenery in Ayrshire is stunning.

My wife and I were looking for a clean/safe/centrally located place to stay. I can't begin to describe how much better in every category this wonderful B&B is. We were warmly treated to A+ hospitality, a very clean room and a divine breakfast. The only negative is the fact we only had time to spend 1 night. Should the opportunity arise to return to Ayr, I will book in advance and spend as long as possible. Many thanks to Karen for it all. Scott & Dianne St. George, Ontario, Canada

Tips:

The Robert Burns Museum, Culzean Castle, Ayr's beach and downtown area, and any place that Karen the proprietor suggests to eat.

Lovely private home B&B, about a ten minute walk into Ayr and about a five minute walk to a wide, sandy beach. Great bed with lovely linen, a sofa and TV, a small ensuite with toiletries, iron, hairdryer and a small fridge in the hall for the use of guests containing fresh milk and allowing space to keep drinks cold. The breakfast prepared by the very helpful host, Karen, was fresh and delicious including a selection of cereal and muesli, salmon, capers, eggs, tomatoes, toast and good coffee.

Tips:

Ate dinner at the Savoy Park hotel, just round the corner, which was lovely. The building has been restored to its former glory from the 1880's, and we ate in a wonderful dining room with huge fireplaces, wall panelling and fab atmosphere, what we ordered was lovely too! In the lovely village of Alloway, about 2 minutes from Ayr, is the birthplace and museum of Robert Burns, which is beautifully presented, and definitely worth visiting.
