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.

In over 40 years of b & b stays throughout Scotland, England and Wales this is the BEST EVER. Hosts, accommodation and food could not be bettered - as vegetarians, the breakfast menu was both innovative and beautifully presented. We will return......

Fantastic - best B & B we have ever stayed in. In fact it is better than some 5 star hotels - fabulous tasteful decor, every home comfort and amazing breakfasts. FTina is the perfect hostess and nothing is too much trouble. Robin provided lots of options for us as amateur walkers and cheerfully took us wherever we wanted to... More

Summerhill is by some distance the best B and B I have ever stayed in. The upstairs double room was 21st Century luxury, the hosts Tina and Robin faultless and the breakfasts perfect. No more needs to be said.

Fantastic B&B with ample sized rooms (we stayed upstairs) and an amazing breakfast. Tina certainly goes the extra mile with home made muesli and locally smoked salmon. The room was spotless, towels fluffy, bed comfy and we were able to control the temperature with a thermostat in the room. There was secure storage for our bikes and a hose pipe... More

quite simply, the best B&B experience we have ever had. Tina was the perfect host and her fabulous house soon becomes your home. The pool/spa is a fabulous extra and the breakfast wouldn't be out of place in a six star hotel.

Tina and her husband have made an amazing B&B. The house is stunning, and finished to the highest standard. We stayed in the upstairs room, which had its own exit via the pool. The room was spacious and extremely comfortable. It was light and airy, with plenty of space. The sofa was an added bonus. Having not been to Castlw... More
