We took a short break to celebrate Hogmanay with family in Springholm. As such we stayed on a room only basis with my son (14) and daughter (12) sharing the twin room and we stayed in the double. Both bedrooms were spacious with en suite facilities of the highest order. There were TV's in both rooms which met the kids... More

Our apologies, Trip Advisor normally sends us alerts when a review is placed but it just didn't happen. That was a wonderful long and detailed review - what a pleasure to read, we are delighted we met all your needs for the whole family and we thoroughly enjoyed having you all to stay. This was a first time to have... More

We chose this wonderful B and B due to its location for a business meeting and what a treat it was. We arrived later in the evening which wasn't a problem and were given a very warm and informative welcome. The room was very comfortable and very clean. Caroline and Stewart have created a real home from home and every... More

Delighted you enjoyed your stay at Isla Cottage and everything was to your satisfaction. We are really pleased with your kind comments about our Bed and Breakfast. Many of our guests use our visitors book but few tend to go as far as Tripadvisor so thank you so much for that. We hope you will visit us again sometime soon... More

Thank you for your wonderful comments - we do try to make our guests feel very welcome and a little pampered, that is how we like to be treated when we stay in other B&B's when on holiday. So glad you felt we achieved this and I shall pass your good comments on to the Grapes village Pub too. Look... More

My son and I stayed at this excellent B&B on our way to a wedding reception. From the road it looks deceptively small but once inside it's very spacious. Our twin-bedded room was a very good size with a large shower room ensuite. Also a TV, sofa, and excellent range of free tea/coffee/hot choolate/herbal tea. Both beds had heated blankets,... More

We stayed 2 nights and booked both rooms for single occupancy, but it was like having a private suite as we had the whole of the upstairs to ourselves. The rooms were really roomy and beautifully appointed and the bathrooms were like something out of ideal homes. We felt immediately at home and Caroline and Stewart made us very welcome.... More

We were only with Caroline and Stewart for one night but would have loved to stay longer if possible. The degree of attention to detail meant that we never needed to ask for anything because it was already there! Great cups of coffee and baked treats, a HUGE selection at breakfast for all tastes, a complementary drink in the evening,... More

My son and I spent two very comfortable nights at Isla Cottage. Caroline and Stewart made us feel relaxed and welcome and were able to answer a number of queries we had about the area. Our breakfasts were delicious and it was interesting to read about all the locally-sourced food we were eating. I had been a little concerned about... More

Glengarth. Isla Cottage is a delightful place to stay. Caroline and Stewart give you a very warm welcome and they have thought of everything to give you a comfortable and pleasant overnight stay. The rooms are spacious and there is no danger of bruising your elbows in the shower room, which can only be described as elegant. If you want... More
