A bold statement, I know, but this is the best British B&B that we ever have stayed in. The location is great - on the harbour wall with a view out over the Tweed through your bedroom window. It's slap bang in the centre of town near shops, pubs and restaurants but still very quiet, as it is not actually on a road. However, two cheap and/or free (depending on the time of day) carparks are each within a minute's walk, so it's still easily accessible.
Eric and Suzanne are the perfect hosts: it just seems to come naturally to them. And although they're quite modest about the place, it's easy to see that they have invested a lot of thought, effort and money into it.
Our room (Swan) was beautifully furnished to a very high standard in a traditional style but with modern touches such as a large flat screen TV on the wall connected to a Sky TV receiver. The light-coloured carpet, along with everything else in the room, was evidently spotlessly clean, as indeed was the whole house. The bed was large and very comfortable. The bathroom also was generously sized with a spacious, modern shower.
The breakfast menu (for which they have won prizes!) provides a lot of choice, extending way beyond the ubiquitous fry-up (which nevertheless was delicious, especially the Ayrshire bacon!) and showcasing a broad range of local produce.
All the positive reviews may look too good to be true but, believe us, they are indeed accurate. All in all, very highly recommended!
