“Enjoyable stay,many thanks.”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

We only stayed overnight visiting family,but thoroughly enjoyed our stay from the warm welcome from Joe to the friendly send off from Geraldine.
Our room was spacious and clean and the breakfast was excellent,with plenty to satisfy the most needy appetite.
Theres even a wee pub next door with a warm welcome and ideal for a nightcap or three.
We were even given a 10% discount as we were visiting family which was a nice unexpected bonus.
Definately recommend to anyone.

Thank you very much for taking the time to write such a lovely review, we do appreciate it. i'm so glad you enjoyed your breakfast and found your room spacious and comfortable. It was also nice of you to mention the cosy pub next door, as the new owner is making a real effort to provide a welcoming place for a meal or a drink by the log fire!

I'm glad you also mentioned the discount you received as family members of Dumfries & Galloway residents as we are trying to spread the word of this offer which also extends to friends of D&G residents.

I hope we can look forward to welcoming you back again soon!

Was staying here for just one night but we will definitely go back if we are in the area again.

Joe and Geraldine did a terrific job of making us feel welcome and comfortable and the breakfast was great.

Previous reviewers have mentioned the warm hopitality extended by Joe and Geraldine, and for good reason: They are simply some of the most charming hosts we have encountered in our travels. Our room was small but quite adequate, and I really liked the little carafe of sherry on the mantel. Special mention about the breakfast: Terrific!
Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Room 78 is rather small.

Joe and Geraldine have a simply wonderful B&B. They are among the most friendly and helpful people you will ever meet. Our room, number 4, I think, was small (no place to leave an open suitcase) but adequate. The breakfasts were very good. Location is excellent for everything in town and the surrounding area.

Room Tip: Room number 4 is adequate but not large enough to have an open suitcase around.

Thank you for taking the time to write such a nice review. Room 4 is our smallest double room, but still has two chairs and a coffee table and plenty of storage in that it does have a luggage rack and two built-in wardrobes with hangers as well as a large chest of drawers and a large divan drawer as well as two bedside tables for guests' clothes and personal items. I realise though that you had a lot of luggage, having come all the way from America to travel around the UK and that you would not have wanted to unpack just for your one night stay at Baytree House. I can imagine that under these quite unusual conditions, you would have found the space tight to have a large open suitcase available to you.

We always try our best to accommodate our guests particular needs and had I known yours, and if another larger room was available, I would certainly have allocated a room more suited to your needs. I hope it didn't spoil your experience too much and judging from your kind words, it seems that it did not, but I'd really like to thank you for your very important feedback as we will now be careful to spot this particular need and allocate a suitable room for guests staying one night with a lot of luggage in future. Joe and I really enjoyed meeting you and I hope to see you both again in the not too distant future. Thanks again for your valuable feedback.
Warmest regards
Geraldine

Absolutely loved this B&B! We turned up at the door last minute, undecided whether to make the 4 hour drive home or stay over, but upon seeing the room fell in love with it! Huge, beautiful room with a vintage feel to it and heaps of character. The attention to detail was fantasic, a huge array of teas and coffees, complimentary biscuits and toffees, slippers, sherry, toiletries and bottled water to name a few. The room was very clean which is more than can be said for the 4 star hotel we stayed at 2 nights previously! Geraldine could not have been more welcoming, making us tea and shortbread in the stunning drawing room and reccomending some local restaurants. The beds were very comfortable, we slept like logs and when we met Joe in the morning were pleased to find that he was just as eager to please and go out of his way to make our stay lovey. Breakfast was delicious with plenty of choice both hot and cold, and served in the lovely conservatory - even the drizzly weather couldn't spoil the view of the garden. Was very sad to leave this morning, wish we could have stayed longer!

We enjoyed our stay very much. The house has a nice feel and the high ceilings in the bedroom and the sitting room give it a nice spacious feel.
The location is very central to the town and we were only a short walk from all the art galleries and the restaurants.
Joe and Geraldine were very helpful and welcoming and there are lots of extra small touches that make the stay feel special ..... like the sherry!

Thank you for your lovely review. I am so glad that you enjoyed your stay and were pleased with our location and the high ceilings in Baytree House! I love them too, they certainly knew how to build houses in the Georgian period with some beautiful and elegant features that fortunately have been retained. I hope to see you both again soon.
