I stayed here with my partner and 2 friends. we didn't have rooms on the front so didn't really get any noise problems that other reviewers have mentioned other than hearing a few late night revellers on the Fri night. We stayed 3 nights and really liked it. good size and clean rooms, excellent freshly cooked breakfast of your choice, and handy location. It's not far over the England/Scotland border and close to so many national parks, coast roads, Lake district, etc. We used it as a base for a motorcycle touring holiday. there are many scenic but quiet roads around there. Beautiful part of the world. Well worth exploring.
Parking might be a bit tight if every guest room had a car, but it was alright with us there on bikes.To get to the parking from the town you drive past the church and vicarage, and at the end of the row of houses turn left and left again and down to the end of the close. there's a bit of a garden so you could sit out if you wanted. the owners are excellent for recommending restaurants depending on what you're after and how much you want to pay. Annan might be small but it has a great variety of restaurants: Indian, Italian, steak house, chinese plus your normal takeaways and more. And they are all within a few minutes walk of the B&B.
the owners are really friendly and helpful, and the guests we saw all seemed nice.
