Our visit was in January for a week to visit lots of old friends, and we were concerned that our B&B base would be really comfortable and warm at such an inhospitable time of year. We needn't have worried - we found every aspect to be truly superb. Anne and John were such thoughtful and friendly hosts and their attention... More

Anne and John were very welcoming, accommodating and knowledgeable about the local site. The rooms were very clean and very comfortable. My Dad, who has a bad back, appreciated the good bed. We will defiantly choose to stay here again when we are next up visiting family. Thanks again.

A really comfortable Bed and Breakfast. We came for a weekend in January to visit friends. The weather was appalling - wind and rain and hail but we were made very welcome in a warm and comfortable room. Despite arriving quite late in the evening the owner drove us himself to a nearby restaurant and then once again to church... More

No bother. We were very happy to oblige by taking you to a couple of places over the weekend when the weather was just so bad. Glad it didn't prevent you enjoying a great time with your friends. Hope we can welcome you again some time. All the best Anne and John. More

John and Anne genuinely cared about making my stay at Balmillig as comfortable and relaxing as possible. The room was very comfortable with subtle underfloor heating - perfect for a particularly harsh west of Scotland winter's night! A comfortable bed, quiet location and a good breakfast ensured that I was ready for the long day ahead. I would recommend Balmillig... More

A warm welcome and a nice cup of tea awaits you . Rooms are well equipped, lovely and warm and spotlessly clean . The bed was very comfortable. Anne and John are keen to make your stay as comfortable as possible and Anne cooks a mean breakfast which sets you up for the day. Anne and John know the area... More

Delighted that you had such a good stay. You did make the most of our advice about where to go and we're pleased the variable weather made for some dramatic views on your scenic tour. Hope you make it back another time, maybe for a little longer so we can tell you about some more of this area's special places.... More

We had a perfect stay with John and Anne last weekend. We don't tend to stay in B&Bs but our stay here has made me completely rethink that because this B&B was excellent in every way - better than any of the hotel rooms we have stayed in before. John and Annie were such welcoming hosts and nothing was too... More

I've been staying in hotels and b&bs everyday of my working life for past 30 years and I can honestly say you will be hard pushed to fine better hosts or a better b&b.

We had an excellent stay at yet another lovely B&B in Scotland. John & Anne were welcoming and helpful. They even did a laundry wash for us. We stayed here 2 days while visiting the area and spending a day at the Ryder Cup. Helensburgh was a good choice. The B&B is located right in the village so we could... More

This was the first time in many years since we have used the services of a B&B, we were extremely pleased and would certainly repeat the experience. The location was ideal close to trains, short walk to town and restaurants. The hosts John and Anne were very informative and provided useful alternative places to visit which were within easy reach.... More
