We recently stayed and found this to be a very clean and beautifully furnished house. The small finishes that add to your enjoyment were all in place and the hosts are very helpful and made the stay a pleasure. Attention to detail and easy parking near the centre of town moved this stay into a top experience.

We had a lovely stay at Douglas House whilst attending a friends wedding. It was extremely well presented and our room was very comfortable. The owners were welcoming and very kindly helped us with a lift to the wedding.

We stayed three nights at Douglas House while in the area for a wedding. It was spotlessly clean, well-equipped, comfortable and the breakfast menus offered Scotland-sourced food like the smoked salmon I had on my third morning. I can't say enough for the consideration and thoughtful care of the hosts while we were there. Lovely place. We'd come back any...

This B&B is one of the best we have ever stayed in. Really excellent accommodation with warm, spotlessly clean rooms. Very welcoming, friendly owners - the first time in years I've been offered help with my bags!! The breakfast menu is extensive, with delicious fresh fruit on offer alongside beautifully cooked local produce. The attention to detail is really impressive...

Fab accomodation; great welcome, beautiful room, delicious breakfast (with foods locally sourced), friendly, warm owners and dog- friendly. Thanks for the little extras. All round A1 package.
