Ranked #7 of 14 Kirkcudbright B&B and Inns
Reviewed May 12, 2013

Delightful lady owner, beautiful, room, view was fabulous right across the town and out over the bay. Comfortable, quiet, clean and plenty of room to move around. Lovely gardens too - red squirrels were in hiding when we were there but that was our only complaint. Don't be put off by the approach to this place through a little housing estate. Fresh milk in a little fridge in the dining room was a lovely touch when we got in tired and cold needing a cup of tea.
Breakfast was continental - lovely fresh fruit, bread/toast, good choice of cereals, every kind of tea you could think of and good coffee too..we'll stay here again.

Room Tip: We had the Burns Room - delightful, panoramic view.

Without doubt , one of the biggest rooms we have ever stayed in !

The large panoramic window in our room gave unrestricted views over the town and the river .

We could watch the small fishing boats sailing up and down the river to offload their daily catch
.
The B&B is very comfortable and tastefully furnished

The breakfast room overlooks the garden.
We were surprised when a pheasant tapped on the window looking for food as we were having breakfast , but even more surprised when a family of red squirrels scampered through the garden onto the bird tables.

A most enjoyable stay

Very good value, very friendly hosts, comfortable stay and plenty of choice for breakfast. beautiful views over the town and an added extra was watching the red squirrels in the garden while we were having breakfast! One room does not have ensuite but private bathroom available so not a problem.

Chattan House is located a short walk from the centre of Kirkcudbright at the end of a quiet street above the town.Our room was the smaller of the 2 available( the other room is enormous and has a very nice ensuite bathroom)but was still very spacious with large windows and great views,plenty of storage,and a comfy sofa.Our bathroom was a short hallway away and was fantastic with a bath,a separate shower,basin etc.The bed was comfortable and everything was spotless.The dining room is equally good.breakfast for us was fruit salad(home made),cereal and toast -delicious-a cooked breakfast is available if you feel the need.In short,we loved it and would go back any time.Stay 2 nights,Kirkcudbright is a great little town.Our best wishes to our hosts,Delya and John.
