A solo traveller staying 2 nights. Kilmarnock House, now under new management, is clean, effcient and rooms are well equipped with mini kitchen and extra features to make your stay comfortable. The new owner drove me to a local shopping centre and helped with locating food to prepare myself - a generous gesture on his behalf.

We stayed here 2 weeks after the hotel had been sold by its very long term owners. I suspect - having owned it for well over 25 years (I deduced that from a magazine in our room dated December 2006!) they were probably as tired as sme of the fittings. Window wouldn't open properly because of foliage caught up in... More

I can see why others rate this accommodation highly. Its not modern and not posh, but it is spacious, comfortable with everything you need and some little touches added that are not always included in some hotels. If you want glamour this isn't for you. However it is what you expect from a property of this era and its super... More

We chose this property based on its location and style of accommodation and were delighted with our choice on both counts. The building is charming and beautifully appointed. Our apartment was spacious, well appointed and beautifully furnished. The kitchenette was surprisingly well appointed, including some microwave utensils, but lacking a stove top and dishwasher, of course. The bathroom in our... More

We choose this place to stay because it offered a good solution to the problem of traveling with two children (we got two adorning rooms). The rate was very good but we did not expect the Kilmarnock to be so beautiful. We all fell in love with the place, for me it was close to where I had to be... More

Kilmarnock is beautiful. We stayed in one of the Honeymoon rooms with ensuite it was perfect. Comfy bed and pillows, heater, TV, ensuite, and kitchenette. Plenty parking out the back for our Landrover Defender. Will come back

We have stayed at Kilmarnock House several times. The sad part now is that the owners, who have been THE owners for forever, are wanting to retire, and are trying to sell the establishment. The differences we noted on this stay were breakfast no longer being included and charges for laundry. However, they do supply soap and bleach for washing,... More

I stayed with family including my 91 year old father. Libby, the host, could not have been kinder or more helpful. The house is Edwardian, beautifully appointed with kitchenettes in each room. It is gracious and old but warm and comfortable. Delightfully furnished.!

A beautiful heritage building, huge room, very comfortable bed, good kitchenette and good location. Host Elizabeth was warm and friendly and the complimentary port & sherry much appreciated after a day out in the cold weather. I stayed 5 nights on a work trip and found it perfect, would highly recommend.

Lovely big solid Georgian guest house. Nicely furnished. Very comfy and a reasonable walk to the centre of town. Owner is lovely. Port and sherry on the landing is a nice touch. En suite and kitchenette included in the rooms are small and a little dated but functional. Overall a good stay. Would recommend.
