Stayed for 4 nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. Lovely room and very hospitable hosts. Ann and John know the area well and were great at giving suggestions of things to do. I would recommend this B+B to anyone.

We thoroughly enjoyed our nights stay with John and Anne in Balmillig House. The house is very clean and comfortable and had everything we needed. We were looked after splendidly, and the house is warm and friendly. We will be back again and would recommend it to anyone staying in Helensburgh.

Very enjoyable week at Balmillig. We were made most welcome by Anne and john and look forward to returning. Would recommend it without hesitation. The rooms were clean and well maintained and the walk in shower was most welcoming after a day in the City.

Stayed four nights at Balmillig House. Anne & John made us very welcome and were full of helpful advice, plus plenty of additional information available. Room very comfortable and really appreciated the tea and coffee making facilities in the room. Location quiet. The garden looked beautiful and it was lovely watching the birds while having breakfast. 10 minutes walk from... More

The B&B was exactly as desribed on-line and both Ann and John were very welcomming, helpful and knowledgeable on the local area. We were there for a wedding and made a weekend stay out of the trip - very glad we did. Stay there and you won't be disappoint!

Stayed for one night in the Yellow room. Easy to find on a quiet charming street. Very clean with all the amenities, tv, wireless, and even an ipad in the room! Anne and John are very welcoming and hospitable. Breakfast is in a lovely conservatory surrounded by the garden.

Balmillig, Owner at Balmillig House, responded to this review

Many thanks for your kind review. Our guests like having the ipads available in the rooms and many mention how at breakfast they also enjoy watching the birds having their breakfast just outside the conservatory. Should mention that Balmillig is located 25 miles west of the centre of Glasgow so it depends on your perception of city size whether you... More

Had a great stay at beautiful Balmilling House. The room was well appointed, very tastefully decorated and had a good size, the ensuit bathroom was also very nice. Everything was very clean. The hosts were perfect in the way that they were attentive and had very good advice regarding the area but on the other hand respected our privacy. There... More

Thank you for such a generous review. We really appreciate the time taken to write it. We enjoyed the visit by you and your Mum and are pleased we could help make it worthwhile.
