I have stayed in some world class hotels this year and Holmhill beats them by a mile. Rosie and Stewart couldn't have been more welcoming if they had tried, my only regret is that we couldn't have stayed for longer. Great stat, great breakfast at a very reasonable price. Highly recommended. I will definitely be back. Ben, London

From the moment we entered Stuart made us feel very welcome and greeted us by first name which was lovely. The hotel was outstanding and the bedroom was just wow. The peacefulness and surroundings made the weekend brilliant. We had visited relatives and just made it the icing on the cake finishing off our day beautifully. The breakfast was delicious... More

We stayed at Holmhill Country House at the end of July 2014. Our room was perfect: light and airy with beautiful soft furnishings. The bathroom was huge and elegant. Breakfasts were delicious, perfectly cooked. Our hosts, Rosie and Stuart were relaxed, charming, friendly and helpful. We shall definitely be back!

We had a lovely stay at Holmhill. The house has marvellous setting by the Nith and views across the Dumfriesshire countryside, inside it is spacious and welcoming, and the bedrooms and bathrooms are very well appointed, with very comfortable beds. Rosie and Stewart cared for us superbly, gave us an excellent dinner and a sumptuous breakfast. It was just like... More

We stayed for 6 nights during the Commonwealth Games, having stayed 2 years ago with our son and daughter-in-law. Stuart and Rosie are so welcoming and helpful (they made us a lovely packed lunch as we had to set off at 5.3am to Glasgow for the games). From the gorgeous rooms, to the sherry and shortbread, from the amazing breakfasts... More

When we decided to slip off to Gretna Green we could think of no better place to stay than at Holmhill House. We've been a couple of times before and knew the standard of the accommodation is really high and the breakfast very fortifying with exceptional hospitality. We were not disappointed! Not only were Stewart and Rosie thoughtful (Rosie booked... More

If we could turn back the clock, we would do it all over again. The service was incredible; the facility was elegant, yet inviting, the owners were charming and attentive. Staying here was the best part of our two week trip to Scotland. The Kansas City Bike Group by Theresa Barton

We have just returned from Holmhill after spending 2 nights there. We can honestly say this is the best Bed and Breakfast we have ever stayed in. We were greeted by Rosie and her husband Stewart who welcomed us warmly and offered us tea and the incredible melt in the mouth home made shortbread biscuits. We were then shown our... More

We stayed for 1 night in March 2014 when the owners were away, and again over Easter. This is a really impressive place to stay. The house is a real period house, but with modern fittings including lovely showers and baths. The house is situated in extensive gardens with great views over the hills about 5 minutes by car from... More

This was our second stay, this time over the Easter weekend with our toddler and small baby. Everything about Holmhill made for a wonderfully relaxed break. We were welcomed with tea and homemade cake and quickly settled into our room upstairs, which had ample space for a travel cot and moses basket for the girls. Rosie and Stewart go above... More
