All three areas for a guest house covered with aplomb. Friendly hosts, light, comfortable and clean room of a good size and the breakfast was delicious - home made rhubarb compote on porridge, mmmh! Only wish we had room for the cooked breakfast too as it looked lovely.

A very warm welcome by a charming couple was welcome after a long drive. The room was comfortable and well appointed and we had a very good sleep. The breakfast was exceptional with a wonderful selection of fruits and a freshly cooked fried meal. Parking was easy and we were close to the town centre.

This was our third stay at Gladstone House and it just gets better and better. The location is perfect for exploring the attractive town. The High Street itself is quiet and parking easy. Hilary and Gordon are amazing hosts and clearly enjoy sharing their lovely home with you. On this visit the weather was not so good but simply relaxing... More

We had a one night stay here at the Georgian House. All guest rooms are on the uppermost floor up 4 flights of narrow stairs. If you have mobility issues or large luggage this would be difficult. Hilary and Gordon are a mature couple who have been in the B&B business quite some time. They are witty and easy conversationalists.... More

We found this while travelling on the West Coast and it was a lovely find. The people are very friendly, the rooms are cosy, warm clean and look lovely. The breakfast was very nice and we even had chocolate eggs as it was Easter. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a lovely classic place to stay.

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
