We can't recommend this friendly guesthouse highly enough! We stayed for two nights over the August Bank Holiday weekend as we were attending a friend's Silver Wedding party at nearby Carrick Shore. The guest house has five bedrooms a cosy guests' sitting room with books for the guests to enjoy. Our bedroom was lovely and spacious with two single beds pulled together to make a very comfortable super-king size bed - we slept very well! Our room had a very spacious en-suite with both a bath and an over-bath shower and there were lashings of good hot water - the proprietor, Helen, warned us the water was very hot...and it was!!
The biggest asset for the guesthouse is Helen herself who is very chatty and friendly and makes you feel at home straightaway - nothing is too much trouble! Her daughter, little Erin, is also a delight!
The breakfasts are freshly cooked to order - which we much appreciated because it's quite dispiriting when you have to place your order the night before and then don't fancy what you've asked for when the morning comes!! The breakfasts are huge and bring a new meaning to "All Day Breakfast" because we found that we didn't want any lunch after enjoying Helen's huge platters of eggs, bacon, sausage, black pudding and haggis!! Helen is also very generous with the tea, coffee, and hot chocolate in the rooms, as well as supplying her guests with shortbread biscuits!! Overall, the Bobbin is great value for money.
If you're staying in Dumfries and Galloway, this guest house makes an ideal base from which to explore. Gatehouse of Fleet also has around four pubs to choose from when it comes to an evening meal.
