We stayed 3 nights and couldn't have been more comfortable. Between the great breakfasts, the never ending supply of milk for our tea and coffee in our room, the general warmth and cleanliness, we couldn't recommend this place enough! Thanks Liz and Ian!

Excellent welcome, breakfasts and attention to detail. My mother-in-law and I booked the ground floor (room N). Liz gave helpful advice on mobility needs and was very patient with us while we worked through what was best for my mother-in-law's needs and replaced swivel chair for a firmer one in our room. Looking to return with my husband. Good position... More

I have never written a review ever but I must compliment Liz and Ian for being wonderful hosts and providing beautiful and luxurious accommodation. They really have thought of everything. The house is spotless and the breakfast is delicious and plentiful. When hotels have withdrawn tea and coffee facilities in bedrooms Liz and Ian have not only provided it but... More

All superlatives for what was just a one night stay over to visit the new local folk festival. Now think of Liz and Ian as pals and will definitely book again when next in the area. The room and bathroom were superb, the breakfast was not just well cooked but great quality, and there is nothing that they won't do... More

Kerr Cottage lives up to its reputation. Just had a one night stay on business in Kirkcudbright but booked Kerr Cottage in Dalbeattie on basis of previous recommendations. I travel all over UK and abroad and can honestly say that you will not find a warmer welcome, immaculate spotless rooms, relaxed atmosphere, comfortable beds and spacious en suite rooms, full...

The house is beautiful and well accessible. You can see all the work the family has put in, and the people welcoming you are really good and friendly people. And it is close to the 7 stanes mountainbike trail!

We stayed 2 nights here. We were made to feel very welcome. The rooms were spacious and I have to say this has to be the cleanest B and B I have ever stayed in. Great location for exploring the beautiful area. Breakfasts were fab too. Will definitely return.

Just returned from a two night stay with friends at Kerr Cottage. Accommodation was excellent. The ground floor room was very spacious and very well equipped. We took advantage of the guest sitting room to socialise and enjoy a drink. Liz and Ian were excellent hosts and provided a delicious breakfast each morning. Would not hesitate to revisit.

Thank you for posting a review and I'm so glad that you enjoyed your stay - it's always nice when 2 or 3 couples come and make full use of the facilities. It's so much nicer sitting in the lounge than having to go to each other's rooms. Lovely to meet you all and I hope we see you again... More

Just got back from Kerr Cottage following a five night stay. I cannot recommend this spotlessly clean accommodation highly enough. We arrived to a very warm welcome. Liz and Ian were really down to earth and friendly. The room "N" on the ground floor was extremely well equipped with a powerful shower and separate bath (which also has a shower... More
