“Fantastic service and rooms to die for”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012

Alan is a saint. Nothing is too much trouble. My room was exquisite. My breakfast was substantial and well cooked and Alan's warmth added to the overall charm. A really nice guy!

I have stayed here on several occassions and each time I have been met with such warmth from Alan. He runs this B and B like its part of the family and pays attention to details, especially when my girlfriend and myself stayed last (He went out and purchased a lovely bottle of bubbly and flowers for me and my partner.) Breakfast on every occassion has been wonderful and Alan has the balance right when it comes to asking if there is anything he can do for you. I've stayed in several B and B but I prefer Lux every time. I would highly recommend this B and B to anyone that wants to experience true scottish hospitality and wants a helpful and warm host.

Room Tip: If you willing to spend a little extra...ask for Room 1 but book well in advance as this in my opini...

Had two rooms at the Lux in the lower/basement level. They were functional and clean, but not anywhere I would want to stay for more than one or two nights (a bit cave like). The bathroom in one of the rooms was awkwardly shaped, with nowhere to put toiletries near or around the sink. Proprietor seems to be new and working hard to get the place in good shape (when we arrived, painting was going on in the hallway and stairwell). Nice little touches are missing (shampoo, for example). Breakfast is functional, nothing special. He's on the right path, but not quite there yet.

Although I only stayed for one night it was an enjoyable experience. ..One was immediately encompassed by the warm family welcome and made to feel very "at home". The room was extremely comfortable, clean and spacious with an excellent en suite. Breakfast was amazing - what a selection! Every effort was made to assist with any queries and I would certainly make a return visit.

An incredibly warm welcome offered by Alan on entry to the premises, you get the impression he cannot do enough for you while not being too overly fussy at the same time. The building has been fully refurbished recently and is light and airy with the rooms fitted out very tastefully and to a high standard. The place feels very safe and secure, and your mind is put at rest by the number of fire sensors and alarms everywhere ready to warn of any impending danger. A great nights sleep in a comfy bed followed by a banging breakfast with an extra mug of coffee on offer to boot! I wouldn't hesistate staying here again.
