A very well presented guest house, which is well run and has a very welcoming atmosphere to it. Our room which was a twin room (number 6) on the very top floor was very comfortable indeed, and the beds were super comfortable which gave us a very good nights sleep. Breakfast was superb, and there was a very good choice... More

Patsy and Jo have created the place that they would choose to stay in if they went away. Everything in the communal areas (breakfast room and guests mini kitchen) has been chosen with care to meet the needs of their guests for optimal comfort and enjoyment. Our room was tasteful and coordinated and sooooooo comfortable. Being on the top floor,... More

We used the outside area sitting with a few bottles of wine soaking up the sunshine. This was our second visit to this hotel Patsy and Jo are great hosts. The breakfast was all that you needed...

Rosslyn House is a beautifully decorated and comfortable B & B , rooms cosy and tastefully furnished. Service is excellent, first time we've stayed anywhere and the owners have offered to take luggage to our room, not even in some of the more expensive hotels we've stayed in, Breakfast is good and beautifully cooked and nothing is too much trouble...

My wife and I have just returned from a weekend at the Rosslyn and it was exemplary. The hosts were friendly and helpful and the food excellent. Our room was spotless, as was the hotel, and comfortable. We will not hesitate to return here and cannot praise the Rosslyn enough. Don't think twice, just book as you won't be disappointed.

The owners of this 4 star b&b, Patsy and Jo go out of their way to produce a very warm welcome. Nothing is too much trouble for them to enhance your stay. Breakfast choice is great using local produce which is superb. Cannot recommend it highly enough.
