We felt immediately at home in "our" blue room, so cosy and quiet. Breakfast was very delicious and homemade. Anne and John are truly amiable hosts who care for their B&B and their guests and the environment with their heart and soul. A very delightful stay all in all.

Excellent B&B situated in a really nice residential area just 5 mins walk from the centre of town. Unfortunately we arrived late however we still received a warm welcome from John. The rooms are clean and very well presented with the added feature of free wifi and an iPad for use. We managed to walk into Town and have a... More

I staid here with my husband for only one night but we only needed 2 minutes to realize that this is a lovely place. The room was beyond expectations, very big, full of light, nicely decorated, the bed was very big and super comfy, bathroom spotless, wifi very very good, location excellent. In the bathroom we even had make up... More

Room (stayed in the yellow room) - bright and airy. Good large comfortable bed. Good amount of storage. Spotlessly clean. En-suite was a very good size and bright due to the skylight window. Pressure on the shower was low one morning, but fine the rest of the time. Breakfast - excellent. Good choice of cereals. Great range of fresh fruit... More

We appreciated the warm welcome that included a cup of tea. We were given great advice for walking/hiking. The thoughtful planning for guests included complementary iPad with speaker, and power adaptor that we forgot to pack, and of course, delicious breakfasts!

This was one of the better of our stays in Scotland. The place is truly delightful, tastefully done out, a lovely conservatory to have our terrific breakfast in, everything fresh and plenty of it and a gorgeous garden to look out on. Lots of info if you want it and very accomodating people. Highly recommended!
