The lady was clearing your tables as you ate for to be ready for the next,t guests. It was a very rushed affair and very poor quality food and as we were paying 100 pounds for... More

My family and I stayed here so we could see the Commonwealth games in Glasgow. The owners didn't inflate their prices as so many Glasgow hotels seem to have done and were pleasant, welcoming and very obliging. The beds were the most comfortable I have ever slept in and the breakfast was cooked to order and filled us all up... More

When I arrived at Canter Holm, the door had been opened before I even got up the steps! A small Guest House with the personal touch. From the warm welcome to the comfy beds, soft bedlinen, excellent breakfast, proximity to the town and a "come and go as you wish" atmosphere, I am happy to recommend this Guest House to... More

Lovely little guest house, very friendly and welcoming! Bedrooms and en suite have everything you need, including an incredibly comfortable bed! Guest house in a good location for walking to the town centre or seafront. Lovely and pleasant stay, would stay again :-)

The guest house is well situated and has good parking. Room was small which was suitable for short period and could be warmer. The ensuite was small but had access to large communal bathroom. Friendly staff. Needs notice to pay by card,breakfast times fixed

First impressions of this B&B were good, friendly owner and good decor in the hall, then we were shown to our room which looked OK if small. We were in the ground floor room by the kitchen. The decor in our room was tired and shabby, the door to the garden had torn net curtains and the glass broken.The en-suite... More
