“Even better than home from home.”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

This B&B is welcoming, friendly, well appointed, excellently decorated, extremely clean with many personal touches from the landlady which made it a really enjoyable place to stay. The choice of foods at the cooked and buffet breakfast put many larger establishments to shame, and the porridge was the best I have tasted in an hotel.The price was very reasonable and I would recommend this establishment to anyone. In fact I will certainly revisit this B&B on a return visit to Galloway and Dumfries.

This B&B is superior to many hotels we have stayed at and we return to it at least twice a year. The owners, Linda and John are welcoming and nothing is too much trouble for them; the breakfasts are outstanding; there's plenty of parking; its location is excellent for walking into the town or as a base for travelling to the many local attractions and our 'usual' room has a huge bathroom and is spotless and very comfortable. Highly recommended.

Three of us came to Castle Douglas for a family wedding, having booked 4 nights in the B &B.
The wedding was great, so was our stay at Douglas House. It's lovely and clean. Linda's breakfasts are delicious; plenty to eat and more if you want. The goodies on the hospitality tray in our room was greatly appreciated. The impression one gains from Linda and John is that you are welcome. That can't be said about every B & B we've been to.

Room Tip: Room 3 is upstairs and overlooking the backyard, which means that one doesn't hear any traffic n...

Spent three nights at Douglas House at the end of July and made very welcome. Spotless comfortable and enjoyable stay. Easy walking distance to town centre.
Would certainly recommend it to family and friends.

We were looking for good quality accommodation within easy walking distance of the town centre, and Douglas House certainly ticked those boxes.

The whole property is immaculate - so immaculate that when you go home and look around, you feel as if you should be hitting B&Q to collect the paint charts! Everywhere is spotlessly clean, fresh and tastefully decorated, and this balances well with the traditional style of the building which creates a cosy and welcoming ambience.

The owners show a real eye for detail, with lovely touches to make your stay special. We appreciated a comfy guests' lounge with books to browse (some covering local history etc), nice little extra touches in our room such as magazines, quality biscuits, tablet, mints and bottled water, a hair dryer, a good range of toiletries in the huge ensuite and the fluffiest towels I have ever had the pleasure to use!

Location was important to us, as we wanted to have easy access to the town centre - in other words, a bottle of wine with dinner and no long walk/taxi required! Douglas House is situated minutes away from the main street, but in a quiet location with ample street parking, so fitted the bill perfectly.

Breakfast was a wide range of cereals, fruits and yogurt, followed by a selection of cooked dishes. We enjoyed the full Scottish breakfast (it would be rude not to have The Works, wouldn't it?), and the quality of the food was excellent - the sausage was gorgeous, and it's always nice to get a tattie scone! All served with a big smile and a friendly word, which made it even more enjoyable.

Top marks to the owners for getting Douglas House just right. The icing on the cake is the room rate - such excellent quality accommodation for such a reasonable price! A lovely place to stay, which I would recommend without hesitation. Thank you, Linda, for making our stay just perfect.

Just spent three nights at Douglas House. Spotlessly clean large room with huge en-suite. Scottish breakfast lived up to all the previous reviews. Plenty of on street parking. Thanks for a very comfortable stay.

Room Tip: I stayed in room number one.

My husband and I stayed for one night as we were attending a wedding locally. Our room was superb with an absolutely huge bathroom with first class facilties. Everything one could want was to hand and nothing was too much trouble for the owner Linda. Attention to detail is obvious and from the moment we arrived were made to feel extremely welcome. After a good night's sleep in our super king size bed we were spoiled for choice with our freshly and individually prepared Scottish breakfast. Would certainly recommend Douglas House as a very special place to stay in the beautiful location of Castle Douglas.

Room Tip: We stayed in the super king size ground floor room which was excellent.
