Very comfortable, great attention to detail, breakfast table was set for my lefthanded husband after first morning, he was very pleased, first time ever! We got the bus into town right outside and fab walks on doorstep too. Very warm welcome.

This is a delightful place to stay whether here for business or pleasure, travelling in company or alone. The hosts make you feel very welcome but are not intrusive, and it is great to have a guest lounge available.

We stayed at this charming B & B for five nights in June and it's proximity to the city and public transport made this B&B a most enjoyable experience for us. John and Rita were charming, knowledgable and attentive hosts and we would highly recommend a stay.

Very simple: house, breakfast, internal garden, hospitality are at the very top, a different, higher level also if they are compared with the best B&B we visited during our Scottish trip. Rooms are not the bigger and price are not cheap: but you cannot wait a cheap price from a service of this level. The owners are really friendly, with... More

Very warm welcoming place, Very nice located bed and breakfast with beautiful garden. If you on a diet before you go, just put on hold while you stay there with all the lovely breakfast on offer. Haddock to the Scottish breakfast. Very good bus service, 2 friendly pubs and cash point machine on the same road.

Friendly service, clean and beautiful rooms. Tasty breakfast. Located next to a smallish river with nice footpath for walks and running alike - even with baby prams! We just loved the stay, despite the Scottish weather ;)

After arriving almost a day later than scheduled from Australia because of airline problems, we were welcomed into one of the most warm and relaxing B&B's imaginable -we wished we could have had the two planned days there. Fantastic traditional Scottish breakfast which included our first taste of haggis (v. tasty), great selection of fruit and honey fresh from John... More

Reta and John are great hosts during our stay in Violet Bank. Reta shared with us useful travel information. The house is nice and comfortable. A big table in the dining room allows people chatting with each other, and breakfast is wonderful by using fresh ingredients. We really enjoyed our stay here for the nice people, environment and food. Heidi... More
