We have stayed in many B&Bs in Scotland over the years and have enjoyed most of them, largely because the Scottish people (and those English who have chosen to move north) are generally so gracious. Gladstone House is one of the very best we've known. From the time Gordon opened the door, humming as he did so, we knew we... More

Lovely place to stay. We were with a party staying at the selkirk arms but not enough space for us all. Room was very comfy and so quiet. Lovely lounge to sit in before we met up with the others for dinner especially as there were 3 of us so we didn't have to sit in each others bedroom. We... More

Lovely old house, full of character, and the hosts just as much! Gordon's banter is hilarious, and we had a lovely breakfast. Room was comfortable and had everything you needed, and the lounge was full of things to read and comfy chairs. Highly recommended!

Hilary and Gordon were the perfect hosts, the room was perfectly clean and the breakfasts were perfectly cooked! We stayed here in the heart of Kirkcudbright for three days and spent our days doing various walks around the area (Dee Walk, Douglas Walk in Doach Wood, Threave Castle, Balcary Bay and Dundrennan Abbey). In the evenings we had the lounge... More

What a lovely week-end we spent here for the bank holiday. Hilary & Gordon gave us such a warm welcome. Gordon's humour and wit kept us amused and the breakfasts were delicious. Looking forward to another stay in my old home town again with Hilary & Gordon

This is a lovely home to spend a few days. You stay on the third floor and there are stairs, but the rooms are cozy and the bathrooms are clean and comfy. You are 2 doors from the Toolbooth and it;s are center. Osborne Antiques are right across the street. Kirkcudbright is small, so a walk around the town is... More

Gordon and Hilary are wonderful hosts. The house is beautiful, the rooms are full of character and very cosy. We were welcomed with tea and delicious homemade cake (This was small insight into Gordon and Hillary's culinary talents). The next day we had cooked breakfast that was simply fantastic (must be tried), together with a selection of their homemade breads... More

We stayed for three nights over the weekend of the annual Kirkcudbright Jazz Festival. Accommodation is limited in the town over this busy weekend and we had a most comfortable and enjoyable stay at Gladstone House, with excellent breakfast and a clean & comfortable room. So good, that we have booked again for next year! Hilary & Gordon are excellent... More

We were due to go to north Norfolk but the weather forecast said fog so we decided to go to Dumfries & Galloway a) the weather was better and b) we had never been before. We arrived and Kirkcudbright looking for a B&B and found the Baytree but they were full. The Owner had the Gladstone owner (later known as... More

Found this hotel very cosy and friendly. It is privately owned and you can tell the pride that the owners have for their hotel. Breakfast is lovely and I believe they do a fixed menu at a set price on request. My room was very clean and cosy. I was in the area on business and would certainly return to... More
