Having driven for six hours, on arrival we wanted to shower before going to the wedding we were attending, but there was no hot water. When I asked about this, I was told curtly that it was my fault as I must have left it running all night. Interesting, as I'd only just arrived! So no showers for us. As... More

Although Mrs Muir looks like a fantastic granny, she needs to retire now.The house was nice ,if old fashioned. No biscuits with the tea/ coffee in the room, had to unplug the kettle to pour it, no TV.hairdryer,complimentary shampoo,(used soap in the shower) in the rooms. No duvet on the bed which was very hard and felt very uncomfortable with... More

Spent 3 nights. Room large and clean, very quiet. Windows covered in condensation every morning. Breakfasts poor, only skinny white bread for toast, no fruit. At checkout we were told our rooms were an additional £6 per night above the rate we were quoted - apparently we had been upgraded without being told of the differences in rooms/costs. No tv...

Myself and my husband stayed there for a w/end, as we were attending a wedding in the town. The owner was very rude on our arrival, didn't show us how to us the door and gave our to us when we couldn't open it. We asked for new towels on the 3rd morning but we didn't get them. Also the... More

The lady that ran the B&B was just lovely!! Location for the town & walks was excellent! The B&B was quiet and clean, it felt like we were staying at our aunts house!! Breakfast just kept coming and coming, would definately go back.

After coming here and reading the other reviews, I was a little apprehensive about my stay at Whitestone House. I shouldn't have been, Mrs. Muir was welcoming and friendly, the room was large, for one person, and clean and tidy. I never had to wait for the bathroom, which was right beside my room. I was given a house key,... More

I booked a double room for myself and my husband as we were attending a wedding at Barony Castle. Mrs Muir was aghast at the thought of two men sharing a double bed - not that uncommon, but she did vent her surprise and discontent. Room dated, but clean. Went for breakfast in the morning at the scheduled time and... More

Oh my goodness. I do so want to be complimentary to dear old Mrs Muir but, then, she did happily take our £62 so she will just have to accept our comments as well. First good point, the house was spotlessly clean. Second, ........? Mrs Muir has been in business for 35 years so if you want to return to... More

My partner and I said here while attending a wedding and we thought it was great. The house is steeped in character and immaculately clean. Mrs muir is so cute I wanted to put her in my pocket and take her home. Breakfast was great and bathrooms were always free. Great value for money.

My fiancee and I recently spent two nights at Whitestone B&B and had an extremely enjoyable stay. The house is traditionally decorated but this is in complete keeping with it being a period property and it is absolutely immaculate throughout. Mrs Muir is simply charming and a total inspiration. Yes she might get a bit confused about your breakfast order... More
