I only stayed for 1 night, but Sue made me feel extremely comfortable and at home as soon as I walked in. My room was absolutely spotless and had all the creature comforts anyone could desire, including satellite/freeview TV and even a DVD player. My bed was also extremely comfortable. Garlieston is also conveniently located about 10 minutes walk from... More
