Smart, spotlessly clean, newly built (?), my double room was about as good as it gets, situated in an attic conversion of some skill, the room was stylish, simple, warm ensuite and modern. The husband and wife hosts are attentive and curtious, they run cycling and walking holidays locally, so if you're a verb, you are in good hands. Breakfast... More

We had the most amazing stay at Summerhill B&B. It's tucked away in a lovely quiet culdesac that's very private. We got a warm and friendly welcome and Tina was more than accommodating when it came to a later check out time. Breakfast was delicious with everything cooked fresh to order and it can be as early or as late... More

Dumfries and Galloway is a lovely part of the country but I have always struggled to find decent accommodation when there on business. Many of the hotels are old fashioned and lack the decor and modern comforts that I want. Doing an Internet search, I stumbled across Summerhill b+b and was I more than pleasantly surprised. A twin room at... More

Our third visit to Summerhill and I know it won't be the last. Tina is just a perfect host and rooms are prepared to the highest standard, are spotlessly clean and welcoming with some really lovely, thoughtful touches. Breakfast is always an absolute delight - made even more so by Tina's warmth and kindness. Both her and Rob are lovely,... More

The position of number 1 in CD is well deserved. Everything about Summerhill is fantastic. The food, accommodation, the host are superb. Lovely modern, spotless and convenient to everything in the town. Access to your own room without going through the house is ideal. Everything has been thought of in the design. I would have no reservations about recommending this... More

We originally booked Summerhill as we were attending a wedding a few miles away and it was the closest place we could find with vacancies... And aren't we glad it was!! We stayed in the downstairs bedroom, which was beautifully decorated. There were beautiful roses in the room on arrival and Tina gave us a genuine, warm welcome. The bed... More

My husband and I stayed here previously and came back as part of our honeymoon. Tina is just wonderful and the rooms are easily the most comfortable we've stayed in anywhere.

We have stayed in other B&Bs in Castle Douglas but Summerhill is by far the best. Tina is an excellent host and provides a wonderful breakfast. The rooms are spacious and comfortable (we have stayed in both). There is tea coffee and hot chocolate provided as well as a corkscrew and wine glasses. Each room has it's own private entrance/outside... More
