Another wonderful stay with Hilary and Gordon in their charming property near the Tolbooth. The bedrooms are lovely, and we had sunshine streaming into our sitting area by the window in the morning, perfect for the morning cuppa watching the town wake up. Then a truly yummy breakfast cooked and served with wit and aplomb by Gordon, who is full... More

Another lovely stay with Gordon and Hilary. They are so welcoming, it just feels like home. As comfortable as ever and the breakfast is still the best I have had I in a B and B - but then this is so much more than B and B - cooked and served with wit, aplomb and much laughter by Gordon,... More

We had a very enjoyable weekend at this beautiful Guest House. Situated in the middle of the town the accommodation is tastefully decorated with well appointed bedrooms. There is a large comfortable guest lounge and we were served tea and cake on arrival. Breakfast was perfect with cereal and fresh fruit followed by an ample cooked breakfast. Would happily recommend... More

Gordon and Hilary have a delightful Guest House situated in the centre of Kirkcudbright. The house is beautiful and the hospitality is unrivalled. Although on the High Street the rooms are quiet. Kirkcudbright is by the sea with a harbour, a castle and numerous art galleries.

We stayed with young sons and cousins for a family funeral. Hilary and Gordon were welcoming and charming. Nothing was too much trouble for them, in spite of the boys going out for folk singing at the Gordon House next door, not coming in until 3 in the morning and then not getting out of their room until almost 11!...

My partner, Gillian, and I have just returned from yet another wonderful few days staying with Gordon and Hilary in their marvellous B&B. Everything, the room, dinner, breakfast, and company were up to their usual high standard, and the craic with Gordon and Hilary was as funny as usual. We look forward to our next visit.

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
