Stayed here for 2 nights recently. Superb. Lovely decor, ambience and spotlessly clean. Room tastefully decorated although ensuite was tiny. Breakfasts excellent with everything you could wish for. Highly recommend this gem of a guest house as a great jumping off point to explore the area.

Hamilton House is a 5 minute walk from the train station but Derek would prefer you call and he'll come pick you up. We found our own way there but he very helpfully drove us and our luggage back to the station when it was time to leave. He gave us a great recommendation for dinner and World Cup watching... More

A superb place to stop. I would recommend this to anyone. Derek and Renee were marvellous hosts. You will not find a friendlier and morey helpful couple anywhere. Breakfast was absolutely excellent with a great choice. Bedroom was spotless, Could not have asked for a better accomodation. Thank you. We will definately be back.

My wife and I spent the last few days of our UK vacation in the beautiful little town of Dumfries. We felt so happy here that we stayed on an extra need. Owners were terrific hosts. Large clean room with a wonderful breakfast. Location is nice and close to train and the town is less than fifteen minute walk away.... More

We stayed here on our journey up to NW Scotland. What a good choice it turned out to be. The staff were very welcoming and the room bright and very clean. The ensuite was small but fully functional. We had a very good nights sleep on the comfortable king size bed. Breakfast was in a light attractive room and meet... More

We stayed here for one night to break our journey up to Oban. The whole place is spotlessly clean, the bedroom was large, beautifully decorated and had a comfortable king-size bed. Breakfasts were good, and, in addition to the usual fry-ups, porridge, cereals and yoghurts, the fresh fruit salad was excellent. Eco and Fairtrade toiletries and drinks were an added... More

This is a great B&B. The couple who run it went out of their way to help us. Not only did they organise dinner in a local restaurant but they gave us a lift there as it was pouring with rain! After a great sleep in a warm, comfortable and spacious room, breakfast was delicious and prepared very quickly. After... More

Superb accommodation at an excellent price. Stayed for a golf tour and cannot find any negative to write about. Rooms and ensuites spotlessly clean. Great location only 15 min walk from town . Ideal location for a number of great courses

Stayed here for 1 night during a tour around Scotland. Received a friendly welcome from our host who showed us to our enormous room which was traditionally furnished. Comfortable bed and good shower. Excellent breakfast. Good off road parking. Although situated on a main road, traffic noise was not a problem even though we were on the ground floor at... More
