“Comfortable stay”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

A very nice comfortable double room, good breakfast, conveniently located just at the outskirts of Castle Douglas in a quiet street. Parking available at the back of the house. The hostess, Mrs. Gordon, was very helpful with directions of what we wanted to see. She even helped carry our rather heavy suitcases up the staircase for us. Clean bathroom, lovely cookies with the tea-tray and ample milk sachets. Would recommend this place for anyone who is looking for a place in Castle Douglas.

Room Tip: Bay room facing the front

Reviewed June 11, 2011

From outside the gardens are lovely and well kept with nice picnic table outside for you to sit at.
Once inside the rooms are all decorated in an old fashioned manner which is in keeping with the victorian house.
Breakfast ok but not great, generally cheap poor quality produce and served bit cold. Also only 1 table for breakfast so you share with everyone else regardless if you want to or not.
The huge drawback to this place is the fact that the host entered our room while we were not present and closed a window which was left ajar (on secure catch) due to warm weather and also unplugged some items which were left plugged in but not in i.e. tv. I feel this is a complete no no when paying for a room for the night which you have left your belongings in.
The next morning the host then attempted to reclaim the full cost of the room even though a deposit had been paid to visit scotland! This was eventually resolved but not without hassle.
Overall I would not recommend it or visit again.
