We were lucky enough to win a two night stay at the Number 1 Bed and Breakfast via a competition on the VisitScotland website. Our bedroom, The Castle Room was comfortable, spotless and offered great views of the Castle (surprisingly) and the nearby Harbour. The separate bathroom, again was spotless. Breakfast each morning was excellent, with a wide range on... More

We've just returned after spending four wonderful days in comfortable and peaceful accommodation. Everything was on hand in our room and bathroom to make our stay relaxed and enjoyable. Anne did everything possible to make us feel welcome and spoilt. We have not stayed in a B & B with such high standards. It is excellent, the food is delicious... More

We had a lovely stay enjoying the art galleries of Kircudbright, skimming stones at Dhoon Bay and admiring the autumn colours on the A712 on our scenic trip back via Clatteringshaws Loch. Anne was a wonderful host and the bedrooms were very comfortable. Spectacular bath and bathroom for the main bedroom. We were a couple and 17 year old daughter... More

This is a very well appointed house, with all possible comforts, including a modern, spacious en-suite bathroom adjoining the Harbour Room, and a real haven to retire to on a rainy day! Thoroughly recommended on all counts, including the excellent breakfast.

We've stayed at more than a few B&Bs over the years but never found a 10/10. Until now. It's the cleanest place we've stayed in bar none and certainly one of the most comfortable/luxurious. The breakfasts were excellent and Ann was very helpful and friendly.

A great place to experience the August Art Trail Event. Immaculate accommodation wtih a warm welcome from a friendly and helpful hostess. Top quality breakfasts, as vegetarians we were more than adequately catered for. Idealy situated in the middle of town with your own castle through the window. Great value. I am sure we will be back.
