Polite lady turned down my request to arrive at 19.30 on a Friday. Kindly offered me an alternative in Dumbarton. I accept this is B and B, not a hotel; but this is Britain, 2013! Quite a few of the population still work... I guess with it being peak season, and having such a successful business; Positano can afford to... More

Just to clear up a few minor details: our latest arrival time is 19:00 - not 18:30. We say 19:00(ish) as a guide, it's not set in stone and we appreciate that things can happen. What we cannot do however, is check guests in *indefinitely* after that hour in high season. When we asked when you would be checking in,... More

We stayed for two nights and had the two bedrooms on the top floor with a connecting bathroom. This set up was fantastic for our family of four. The rooms very quaint and cozy. We arrived early in the morning and were welcomed with open arms. After traveling for many hours we felt like we were home even though check... More

We stayed one night at Positano B&B in Dumbarton. We were very happy with the size of the rooms, cleanliness of the hotels and the hospitality. Conchetta's mother and uncle fixed us a heartly Scottish breakfast and also shared stories of how they came from Italy to Scotland. A lovely place to stay.

We stayed here for one night whilst up to visit family and I can honestly say we couldn't have been happier with our time there. We stumbled accross this B&B as the Premier Inn we usually use had no spaces. I am so glad they were fully booked as we have now found a place we will use time and... More

I was a bit worried after booking by phone as the person I spoke to seemed very inflexible about arrival times (I was arriving by public transport on a Sunday!) But once at the Positano I was very happy - the room was large and airy and although on a ground floor there was little outside noise. The breakfast room... More
