Central location, helpful hostess, good parking, spotlessly clean, nice touches (e.g. cafietere coffee in room) and excellent breakfast. The locally smoked salmon is particularly good - much of the breakfast ingredients are locally sourced.

Stayed two nights with young daughter and our family dog. Felt extremely welcome and at home. We stayed in the lovely large downstairs bedroom with fabulous ensuite. Everything immaculately clean and well appointed. Absolutely delicious breakfasts and nothing was too much trouble for Linda and John.

This is a very welcoming B&B, beautifully presented with lots of very thoughtful touches in the bedroom - such as a hot water bottle for colder nights. Our room looked over the back garden, so was very quiet and had a lovely big bathroom. Breakfast was delicious, cooked and served by Linda and John, the very friendly owners.

Spotless! Great B&B, central and welcomes dogs. Small in terms of the number of rooms but caters for all types of travellers. Warm, friendly and excellant breakfasts. Good use of space in the single, downstairs bedroom.

A just about perfect B&B, reasonably priced, with clean and airy rooms, excellent breakfast, and friendly hosts. Our room on the ground floor, Room 1, was excellent with a superb ensuite bathroom. We were there just one night en route to the Cairnryan ferry, but it would be an excellent base from which to explore the wonderful surrounding countryside. Recommended.

The rooms are beautifully decorated. We had both the large room downstairs and a double upstairs. Beds were very comfortable. Breakfast was delicious in a very nice large dining area. Owners were friendly and we enjoyed our two night stay.
