My wife and I have just spent 3 days staying at the Dunlaverock, adapted room was excellent, breakfast was a treat (try the porridge) and the hosts did all possible to assists us. All in all this was a first class choice and we will return. The view of the bay is outstanding.

This B&B has the perfect position n overlooking a very attractive sandy cover. Only able to book for a single night, which suggested popularity, at £95 pn per couple. On arrival we received a very warm welcome and offered tea and biscuits in the attractive and comfortable guest lounge with sea views ... great start. Our bedroom was spacious again... More

Perhaps this will not be accepted as a review. My disappointment is not with the Guesthouse itself but with management. I contacted them with regards staying there. Received e mail saying they would e mail me on the Monday. That Monday is three weeks tomorrow and I'm still waiting! In my book a poor reflection on management, and despite wanting... More

We arrived here on Valentine's Day afternoon for a romantic break, and we could not have been more delighted by the beautiful house filled with antiques and the wonderful warm welcome. When we arrived there was a lovely log fire burning in the lounge which was lit especially for us (we had the advantage of being the only guests so... More

This is an exquisite B & B. Some members of my family had stayed before, but I hadn't. I had the whole top floor to myself with outstanding views of Coldingham Bay. We virtually took over the guesthouse, being a party of 8 (7 adults and one child) and were incredibly well looked after. The proprietors were friendly and did... More

We have just returned from 3 days at Dunlaverock having had a wonderful time. The guesthouse has many period features and the garden leading to the beach is so well tended. Breakfast was varied and plentiful and it was good to chat with the other guests. There is so much to see and do in this unspoilt area. The views... More

Beautifully situated overlooking Coldingham bay, if you ask for a beach view room. As I remember there are 2 beach view rooms, 2 garden view ones. Room 1 was a large sunny room with double bed. Problems though if you suffer from a bad back!! - beds too soft with cheap mattresses, and management not overly willing when approached about... More

Just returned from a very pleasant 1 night summer get-away at Dunlaverock Guesthouse. We paid the small extra for a sea-view room which was well worth the money as the views across Coldingham Bay are magnificent. The house is full of character and warmth. The rooms are equipped with a small TV and mini-fridge with refreshments on sale. When we... More

After reading all the positive reviews I thought this B&B was a safe bet, but was ultimately disappointed. It's time to inject some realism here. The Good: Fantastic views, and close to the beach. Room was clean. Proprietors were friendly. Adequate parking. The Niggles: Breakfast wasn't great. My wife's egg was undercooked, the bacon had the consistency of leather, cutlery... More
