“Lovely, welcoming and a very high standard!”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

Me and my mum recently stayed at Douglas House for two nights. It was lovely and welcoming. A superb breakfast choice in a lovely dining room.
The room was fantastic; clean, spacious and beautifully decorated. The en-suite was equally as lovely, complete with a very big bath!
Douglas house is situated near the high street and the perfect location to visit places such as Dumfries and Kirkcudbright.
We will definitely be recommending!!

We recently spent two nights at Douglas House and thoroughly recommend it to anyone. The room was beautifully furnished, very peaceful and spotlessly clean. Breakfasts had an excellent choice and our hostess was very helpful. A very restful break!

The absolute best B&B we have had the pleasure of staying at. Attention to detail and commitment to their guests is second to none. Immaculate rooms beautifully furnished, with a comprehensive breakfast cooked perfectly. Our family group of four adults were well satisfied with our rooms and service, An emotional return to Castle Douglas made perfect by Linda at Douglas House - thank you.

We have just returned from staying at Douglas House for 6 nights. I cannot praise it highly e nough. It was immaculately clean, lovely rooms. The breakfast was great with a choice of fruit yoghurt cereals and a cooked breakfast, so you could have exactly what you wanted and as much as you wanted, in a lovely dining room laid with white cotton tablecloths and napkins. Finally nothing was too much trouble for the owners Linda & John. One word sums up this B&B FANTASTIC.

I stayed one night at Douglas House and couldn't fault it. I had the downstairs double room with full bathroom and shower. Both bedroom and bathroom were very spacious. I had a comfy bed, fluffy towels and little extras like magazines, tablet, cafetiere coffee and green tea. Everything was very high quality. Breakfast was very good, especially the choice of healthy foods which were provided in addition to the full breakfast. I usually stay in hotels but I would love to stay here again.

This B&B was recommended to me by family.
We turned up 4 hours early for check-in but this was not a problem and we were shown to our room after only a couple of minutes. There was plenty of parking (enough for 1 car per room) directly adjacent to the premises, overlooked by some of the rooms. The area is very safe to leaving cars here will not be a problem. The road that the premises is adjacent to is fairly quiet and we were not disturbed at all by traffic noise.
The room was marvellous, we paid the higher rate and got one of the bigger rooms, but even this still represented fantastic value for money, coming in at about the same price as a budget-hotel.
The interior of the room looked like it has just been refurbished, everything looked brand-new, very clean and tidy. All of the fixtures and fittings were of a very high quality and in very good condition. All of the usual amenities were provided, hair drier, etc. The Tea & Coffee is well stocked sachets, biscuits, etc; there was even a couple of complementary bottles of Highland Spring and a bag of tablet. There was a large wardrobe with plenty of space for hanging clothes. The bed was very large and the sheets, pillows, etc, seemed to be of a very good quality and were incredibly clean.
The bathroom was large and very well appointed. The bath is massive and well worth a go if you have time, the shower was hot and powerful. There were a few bottles of shampoo, bath oils, etc for guest use which was a nice touch.
Breakfast in the morning is in a small dining room, which was comfortable and cheery. The breakfast menu had all of the usual juices, cereals, toast, etc and then a menu of hot items.
I cannot remember all of the items on the hot menu but I had the cooked breakfast which was fantastic. Checkout was quick and painless - it took less than a minute!
The staff in this place are super friendly and obviously take a lot of pride in their place, I would thoroughly recommend staying here - it is by far the nicest B&B I have ever stayed in.
