“Spot on!”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

Everything about this place is exceptional! Don & Vanessa are so welcoming, nothing is too much trouble, Don is a fount of knowledge and the setting beautiful. I'd just had an op so had special dietary needs and they went the extra mile to ensure I still had a varied and enjoyable breakfast as they did for my friend with coeliac's . Beds are so comfortable and everything is spotless without being too clinical and the conservatory is a chill-out place which is so relaxing. I would have marked this 'excellent' as I travel widely and its certainly in my top five, just missed out to a log mansion in the Yukon with genuine french cuisine but that's no disgrace! Can thoroughly recommend and I'll certainly be back (if thery promise not to hit me:-).

Room Tip: The annexe is a separate building which has a little outside seating area with a view of the estuary...

We stumbled across Rosemount by accident and what a stroke of luck. We were met by Don who made us feel really welcome, we were shown to our room which looked out over the estuary and was very nice. Don suggested out some places to visit and we went exploring, Kippford is a small but really lovely village, we went up the muckle and down to she'll beach then spent the rest of the day in the pub sat outside watching the sun go down over the estuary. My fave place of our trip.

I booked this place for a number of reasons, I had some family business in the area, it was my wife's birthday and it had excellent reviews. Whilst I must confess to being somwhat sceptical of some trip advisor reviews whether they be bad or excellent preferring to believe the middle ground, this guest house is exceptional! From the moment of arrival with a pleasant welcome, a tour of the facilities and concise explanation of how everything worked. We stayed in the suite, seperate sitting room with reclining chairs, plentiful tea and coffee making facilities, flat screen TV with satellite receiver and excellent picture and stunning views across the estuary.
The bedroom was lovely with king-size bed and immaculately prepared with in addition, lovely fluffy towelling robes, watch out Hilton Hotels and we have stayed in a few of those on our travels.
I would struggle to find anything bad to say about this guest house. Sometimes proprietors advertise things on their web site that they cannot deliver, such as pictures of red squirrels, but here at Rosemount guess what!? On the afternoon we arrived and the next morning, there they were on cue feeding in the garden.
Breakfast was superb, plenty of it, all local produce and beautifully cooked.
As a local boy now living in Staffs I am often asked to recommend places to stay in Scotland. Having been away over thirty years I sometimes struggle, not anymore I would have no hesitation in recommending this little diamond, It really is superb.

Room Tip: Go for the Suite worth the extra for the treat!

We had the pleasure of staying at Rosemount Guest House for two nights in October. The welcome was warm and the accommodation spacious, clean and very comfortable. We had the double suite which consisted of a sitting room with adjoining bedroom. The room overlooked the estuary, as did our daughters' equally well equipped twin room. The attention to the smallest detail made it obvious that the owners care about their guests. Breakfast was varied and tasty and set us all up well for the day. The village of Kippford is quiet but offers a good base for walks and local sightseeing. The two village pubs cater well for evening meals. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Rosemount and look forward to going back. We throughly recommend it to anyone.

Recently returned from a three night stay at Rosemount in Kippford and my wife and I simply wanted to echo the opinions of so many others who have stayed here.

We stayed in the Suite and it was just superb.

Having a separate Lounge, with the comforts of reclining chairs and THAT view is definitely worth paying the extra for.

Vanessa & Don are wonderful hosts and the breakfasts are simply brilliant.

Note that for food, there are just the two pubs in Kippford, but you can also get a very nice homemade sandwich at The Ark, a souvenir shop on the front, which we did for a change one evening.

Very oddly, there is no Tea Room in Kippford, which it is crying out for, but there is a very nice one in Rockclffe, the next hamlet along the coast which is a very easy walk away.

Thanks for making our stay so pleasant and comfortable.

We have just returned from our second trip to the Rosemount B&B. It is a wonderful place, run by a friendly, helpful couple. The rooms are beautiful. We have stayed in a double room and the Suite - both of which had the most amazing view over the estuary. Everything you need is available to you, and the conservatory is a beautiful space in which to sit and watch the world go by!
Breakfast is memorable - Black puddings to die for, and everything locally sourced.
Near to many of the 7 Stanes mountain biking routes, so a good place to stay after a hard day on the bike! There is a pub very close, so good food in the evening too!
What more could you want!
