“The best B&B we have stayed in”
Reviewed August 21, 2009

This is a wonderful B&B in an outstanding location. Our hosts Tim & Hilary (and their dog, Ted) were incredibly welcoming, and the room was large, beautfully decorated, and boasted a dramatic sea view. The room was very plesant to spend time in, and there is also a large sitting room downstairs. Breakfasts (including generous quantities) of coffee were freshly-prepared to order. I recommend Hawthron House unreservedly. Do also visit the Clansman restaurant in the centre of Port William village.

Stayed August 2009, traveled as a couple

We cannot rate this B and B highly enough. A lovely friendly welcome awaited our arrival, The house was then handed over to us as the owners had a previous engagement. We had the run of the house to ourselves (which does not have to be locked, the area is so safe). Although our bedroom did not have en-suite facilities,it didn't seem to matter as big fluffy dressing gowns were laid out for us to use. We had a lovely sea view, all the room facilities you could wish for and the breakfast was excellent. Highly recommended.

Loved our weekend there. Extremely relaxing and didn't want to leave. We had good weather which was a bonus. Tim and Hilary were great, food excellent including the shortbread! They were very friendly to us (and to the dog!), as was Ted!
We are really looking forward to returning for some more R and R, its the perfect place for this. Our 2 day break seemed longer, felt like a real holiday.
Many thanks to you both (and Ted), hope to see you before too long.
