“Friendly owners, great breakfast ... and a bath!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2013

I stayed here on my second evening of a long distance cycling trip and was delighted to find a bath in my en-suite which was just what my legs needed. Friendly owners and was able to secure my bike in the back yard overnight. Tea and coffee making facilities and breakfast options in the morning were extensive. Would recommend and Gatehouse of Fleet itself is a lovely wee place for a wander.

The Bobbin Guest House is on the main street near the centre of Gatehouse of Fleet. Free parking is available in the street but they also have off-street parking to the rear. Our double room with en-suite bathroom was spacious and comfortable. The owners were friendly and very helpful. The highlight of our stay was the cooked breakfast, which set us up for the rest of the day. We would definitely stay here again.

I stayed here last Saturday night with my 2 daughters on a spur-of-the-moment trip to Scotland. Helen was a delight from my booking enquiry right through to our departure. We had the family room at the top of the building which was beautiful, spacious and clean as was the en-suite bathroom. Nothing was too much trouble for Helen, Jamie and daughter Erin. We were given spot-on advice as to where to eat and were told that we could come and go as we pleased - which we did. Breakfast was perfect and abundant; my daughters had at least 4 helpings of fresh fruit and also had our choice of cooked breakfast! Only sorry i couldn't have stayed longer.

My friend and I shared a wonderful 2 nights' stay at the 'Bobbin' with host Helen who was warm, welcoming and exceptionally helpful and kind....going out of her way to find me after we had checked out to return a forgotten book to me! The 'Bobbin' is centrally situated in Gatehouse of Fleet...a most pretty village surrounded by beautiful hills and countryside. My friend and I had traveled there to join a tour visiting the ancient Pictish Stone at Trusty's Hill close by. Helen kindly lent us a map which enabled us to find and visit other historical sites around the area. The 'Bobbin' is clean and comfortable with ample hot water for baths and showers and the breakfast is freshly prepared and fills the plates in abundance! We had originally only booked in for one night planning to stay elsewhere the following evening...however after visiting Kirkcudbright we decided to return to Gatehouse of Fleet and spend another evening there...preferring much more the gentle energy and softness of that area and Helen's little 'Bobbin' guest house. I can highly recommend a visit and stay and know that a warm welcome and excellent facilities and scenery awaits anyone who cares to travel to Gatehouse of Fleet and stay at the 'Bobbin'.

We stayed here with friends last Saturday night and received a very warm welcome from Helen.
Comfortable and very clean bedroom/bathroom. Wonderful breakfast and Helen is very accommodating and ensures everyone gets what they want - and plenty of it! Brilliant to have such a choice of freshly prepared fruit. Helen is a delightful host and we can certainly recommend a stay here.

This is our third time at the Bobbin and we refuse to stay anywhere else, the rooms are warm, plenty of hot water and the choice of shower or bath, very clean with plenty of tea, coffee, and hot chocolate.

The welcom from Helen, Jamie and Erin is always warm and cheerful and nothing to much trouble.

Now the breakfasts...............where do I start!!! Everything is fresh from the fruit juice, fruit and the cooked breakfasts.................to die for!!!

Helen is very eager to make sure that you enjoy your stay and she makes sure that you don't go away hugary!!
