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. I have been working in Helensbough on and off for the past five years and in that time have stayed at all the hotels and most... More

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

.......that hasn't been said before - many times ! Absolutely super place to stay. Couldn't fault anything. Pot of tea on arrival. Bedroom and bathroom were spacious and spotlessly clean. Lovely breakfasts, freshly cooked to order. John and Anne were the perfect hosts. If we come back to Helensburgh again we will certainly stay at Balmillig. The service even included... 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

We decided to visit the Trossachs for a weekend away and decided to stay at Balmillig, as the location was ideal and the photos showed it to be clean and comfortable. Upon arrival, we were greeted warmly by Anne and shown to our very spacious room, which was clean, light and immaculate! We were also offered a cup of tea... More

We thoroughly enjoyed are three days in Helensburgh made especially memorable by the excellent stay at Ballmillig House. The hosts were delightful, and we had many interesting conversations and help in planning where we should visit. The National Trust house within walking distance, was probably the most satisfying house I have visited - remarkable architecture and harmonious dedicated designs within.... More

Having visited in early September for the start of our big trip, John and Anne are the perfect hosts. We were given a warm welcome to their beautiful B & B, helped in with our luggage to our very delightful room, and offered a cuppa!! Everything in our room was thoughtfully done, bright, airy and a great ensuite. A very... More

I stayed here with my daughter prior to starting the John Muir cycle way which runs from Helensburgh to Dunbar. We could not have chosen better accommodation or hosts to set us on our journey. Anne and John could not have been more helpful with information about the area, reference books and vouchers available for dining out. They gave us... More

Many thanks for a great review. We're very pleased to have provided a good start for your big bike ride on the JM Way. We're keen to see more walkers and bikers use the route and of course to use the Three Lochs Way route which also passes our front door. Maybe we'll see you return to bike the TLW.... More

This was perhaps the nicest B&B I have ever stayed in. It was conveniently located within easy walking distance of the Helensburgh Central Station and Hill House. It was spotlessly clean, well appointed, including an iPad in our room and a very comfortable bed, and had comfortable common areas well stocked with information about the area and interesting books.
