I am not a big lover of B & B accomodation, preferring hotels however Summerhill is a comtemporary B & B in Castle Douglas that is on a par with many quality hotels throughout the world. The rooms are superb with a big comfy bed, leather settee, tea and coffee making facilities and biscuits. The attention to detail is exceptional.... More

We recently toured Scotland and stayed in a number of B & B's and this was one of the very best for all the reasons given by previous reviewers. Tina and Rob (although you'll mostly deal with Tina) are really welcoming, friendly, and helpful and run the B & B side of their house very professionally with excellent attention to... More

My wife and I were connected to the Summerhill b&b when we booked a cycling trip through the associated galloway holidays. We were treated to the best Scottish hospitality while cycling for 7 days and finished up at Robin and Tina's pristine haven. Meticulously clean, modern, and appointed as a 5 star hotel. Breakfast was exceptional with smoked salmon eggs... More

We received a very warm welcome from Tina when we arrived, having had no difficulty finding the property in a quiet cul de sac. We were shown to our self contained accommodation which had been well planned and was beautifully furnished. All the furnishings were of a very high standard. A lovely touch was the fresh white roses in a... More

What can I say but award 6 stars as this B and B is so very good. The accommodation is first class and the cleanliness outstanding. Breakfast was a real treat and the welcome warm. You could not want for more - trust me on that.

We stumbled upon this lovely B&B during our honeymoon. Although living abroad & having travelled extensively, we would struggle to recollect a better place we have stayed. Tina the owner has done a fabulous job - breakfast is award winning & rooms are delightful.
