Douglas House is an excellent b and b. I visit Castle Douglas every three months and would not stay anywhere else. Linda and John will do everything possible to make your experience enjoyable. The rooms are beautifully decorated and breakfast is delicious.

One of the best B&B I've stayed in if not the best, and over the years I've stayed in quite a few some very good and some not so good, and this is the best, I was met by a warm and friendly welcome they couldn't do enough for me, breakfast was excellent, the room was great.
