Booked for a double room for 5 nights costing £59.50 per night, included breakfast for 2.

On our arrival at the b&b, we were greeted and shown to our room by John, who instantly made us both feel welcomed. Our breakfast order was taken and the time we would like it (within their serving times), I consider this as a bonus as it assists in getting breakfast served in a resonable time.

The room suited are needs for our stay really well; it was nice and clean with a comfortable bed, a good size TV and en-suite shower cubical. The free wi-fi was excellent in both speed and reliability!

At breakfast, we met Suzzane (the new owner) who was equally as friendly as John. During the stay, they understand that offering the same breakfast daily can be a bit of a bore, so attention was giving in offering a bit of variety, this included a omelette, pancake and even John's homemade cinnamon porridge. All food was of excellent quality!
The interaction at breakfast was also really good, offering stories and ideas of places to visit (always good to get an idea from people compared to adverts!)

All in all, we enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend for anyone wanting a good place to stay within easy reach of both Glasgow and Edinburgh (the train is far easier as the b&b is just a 15min walk away)

We want to wish John a happy retirement and the new owners Suzzane & Alan all the best; will stay again when coming to visit the family.

We stayed here for one night as a pit stop between Aberdeen and Manchester. John is super friendly and recommended where we should eat for the night. Breakfast was lovely, lots of cereals and never ending toast and orange juice. We both had the Scottish breakfast, which was cooked to perfection. John is handing the keys over to the new owners, so we wish them the best of luck. We wouldn’t hesitate to come here again if travelling this way.

Ample parking in the back, tight squeeze getting in though. Breakfast was supper, best coffee in UK. John was super helpful and pointed us to go to see the Kelpies and Falkirk Wheel, very close. Our room was wonderful and comfortable bed. Highly recommend, price was great.
