“Top b&b and exceptional service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013 via mobile

We stayed in the more expensive of the 2 rooms and found it to be very luxurious. Huge bed, nice decor and selection of dvds for good measure.

The place is about ten mins walk from the town centre which was ideal. The service of the owner is what really sets this place apart. She was so helpful and was able to recommend plenty to see and do and even booked us a table at a great local restaurant.

I would definitely go back to this place!

stayed here in February 2013 Absolutely stunning B&B would recommend it to anyone!! .. The photos of the rooms don't do them justice everything is finished to an amazing standard, the decor is very modern and the indoor Jacuzzi is great for relaxing! The couple who own the B&B are lovely and the breakfast is amazing everything is fresh and they have lots to choose from .. will defiantly be returning in the near future :)

Booked here due to reading all the previous reviews and we were not disappointed!!! Altho we had seen photos of the room we would be in before arriving, we were still stunned by it - everything in the room was finished to such a high standard and the underfloor heating and walk in shower was incredible. Tina could not have made us feel any more welcome from the minute we arrived. She recommended places to eat and gave us directions to the areas we wanted to visit and breakfast was a treat. We wanted a weekend away to relax and recharge and certainly got that at Summerhill. Would highly recommend you stay here!!

Stayed over on a cycling trip through Galloway. Castle Douglas is not perhaps the first place you would think of staying, but Summerhill was recommended and was superb. Friendly but not intrusive, comfortable and modern. Breakfast was great too

In August 2012, my husband and I and another couple traveling with us stayed at Summerhill Bed and Breakfast in Castle Douglas, Scotland, My husband and I had stayed there in August 2011 and knew we had to reserve it to share with our traveling companions. Robin and Tina are the most excellent and gracious hosts with much helpful knowledge of the area.Their 2 bedroom, purpose built bed and breakfast is incredible - from the king-size bed to the large, modern bathrooms to the breakfast area overlooking the garden. The decor is tasteful and calming and modern and the breakfast is fresh, homemade and is prepared and served with a beautiful smile from Tina. We were delighted by their warm welcome and that they remembered us! You cannot do better than this bed and breakfast in Castle Douglas. I highly recommend it! :)

Room Tip: They only have 2 rooms and they are both gorgeous!

We received a warm and very personal welcome. The house is modern and features oak flooring and furniture throughout with underfloor heating and a luxury walk-in shower. Every possible detail had been attended to. The breakfast was scrumptious and refined. I loved the homemade granola, the local bread and preserves.
Would recommend to anyone wanting a touch of luxury in Scotland!

Four day business stay was superb. Hosts were very helpful and friendly. The food was excellent. Accommodation was the best. The spa pool was warm and enjoyable. Ideal small walk into this small market town.
Recommend this accommodation and will return again soon.
