Dalbeattie and the surrounding towns are not over-endowed with hotels, so I selected Trewan for its proximity to the place I was visiting.
Jenny has an enormous carpark at the back of the house and a beautiful garden. She has arranged a kind of bridge, so you can wheel your suitcase right to bedroom level, from the garden. [There are about 6 or 8 steps from the car park down to the garden]. I had a bedroom with a glorious view to the hills on the other side of town and the sun poured in during the evening.
The room had a television, a kettle kit and a 3 piece shower room. Jenny served breakfast in the big kitchen and finished it while I waited [and chatted], so everything was fresh. One of the choices was home made jam on toast to follow the full Scottish breakfast. she had a fund of local knowledge, when making recommendations.
Next time I'm in D+G, I'll stay at Trewan.
