I only stayed one night but It was great and I could of stayed for a lot longer. Rooms are excellent and very comfortable. Breakfast is spot on! I'll be back one day in the near future. Thanks for a great stay.

We have just returned from a two night stay at the Lakeview Guest house. I would like to thank Alan and Elaine for their excellent hospitality and Elaine for help with our booking. We were in room 4, which although small was perfectly formed, beautifully decorated and with added touches of complimentary toiletries and hospitality tray. Breakfast too was excellent... More

I booked this B&B on-line for an over-night stay whilst I visited the 'Toon'. The price was very competitive and I was pleasantly surprised that it included breakfast. I had a room in the attic with a shared toilet/bathroom. My room was suitably spacious and had a sky-light velux window which allowed ready access to natural light and fresh-air. The... More

We stayed at the Lakeview Guesthouse for two nights during particularly glorious weather for this part of Scotland. Both Elaine and Alan, our hosts, were pleasant, considerate and helpful making our stay very enjoyable indeed. The guesthouse is on quite a busy road but there was not a lot of traffic noise and opposite there was a rather delightful little... More

Friendly welcome throughout our stay, we had a twin bedroom with en-suite, whole room was small in size but enough to accommodate us for the 2 nights we were staying. Elaine and Alan had no problem with our son and daughter in law and grandson coming in on the Saturday to get changed for the wedding we were all attending... More

The accommodation was exceptionally clean and the breakfast was excellent. The room we had was small with little room for storing clothes. It was OK for 2 nights but, if staying longer, it would not be appropriate. The location was great and the couple who run it are very friendly and helpful. We arrived earlier than expected but that was... More

This was a first class guest house. I had a single room that was en-suite. The room was spotless and very cosy with extremely good and spacious bathroom. The owners were friendly and nothing seemed too much trouble for them. The breakfast was also first class, served with a more than generous pot of tea and a wide choice of... More

I used this B & B either side of a ferry journey home to Northern Ireland. It was excellent! The lady was very friendly, the rooms were spotless both times I stayed. The breakfast was great quality and health. They are happy to accommodate late arrivals and early departures for ferry travellers.
