Made to feel very welcome by Mary and Donald. I was on a 5 day trip to Scotland to take in Edinburgh city centre, a train journey to Mallaig, and a visit to Edinburgh speedway at Armadale. Just a 30 minute train ride from Edinburgh centre and 2 miles from Edinburgh speedway. If you are going to the speedway buses... More

I've just spent a charming three nights at the Gables B&B in Bathgate. I was in the area for work and needed a place to rest, relax, write and get some emails sent and was very pleasantly surprised to be shown to a huge room despite being on my own. It was exceptionally clean with lovely linen on the beds... More

What a gem of a find! Stayed here before going home after a wedding, and wished we could have stayed longer. It's situated on the outskirts of Bathgate, but within easy distance from the town centre, railway station and motorway From the minute we entered this lovely b & b we were made to feel welcome by the owners Mary...

Mary took an interest in our plans and subsequent reviews of what we had experienced during our visit. We were within easy walking distance of Bathgate town centre which gave us... More

Great place to stay, clean, modern comfortable room topped off with friendly, welcoming personality of Mary and her daughter and a superb breakfast. Close proximity to the railway station and town centre was very handy. We would recommend the Gables to anyone wanting to stay in Bathgate.

All very clean and tidy. Breakfast served by Mary's lovely, friendly daughter was well cooked, plentiful and fresh - not at... More
