Exellent b and b.

A delightful granite cottage with a modern touch. Very comfortable stay and our host Liz could not have been anymore accommodating. Excellent breakfast and tea and coffee facilities. It is located at a junction on a busy main road which quietens down at night and did not disturb but I was prepared with earplugs! Would recommend and will stay again. Handy location for that area.

Clean and friendly B&B

The B&B couldn't have been easier to find, located as it was at a major crossroads in town, and also an easy walk into the centre of Dalbeattie which is a very nice little town with several restaurants to choose from. That, however, meant that there was considerable traffic past the place, some at relatively high speeds. The noise woke me several times the first night, but not at all the second. The owners are very nice, although we wish we could have spent more time talking to them. They were quite busy, I'm sure, as we weren't the only guests. They were very generous in lending us a fantastic book on walks in Galloway, which we were glad to have. The room and en suite bathroom were very up-to-date and clean, as was the lounge and dining room. The breakfast was quite hearty and well-prepared, a good start to a long day of enjoying the many outdoor activities in Galloway. A very pleasant stay.

5/5 Excellent

Simply The Best

We are traveling throughout the UK and Ireland and this is the most perfect B&B we have encountered. The bedroom and day lounge are exceptionally beautiful and maintained and the dining room was simply outstanding to international standards. The atmosphere is warm, welcoming and friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Off road parking easily accessible. Everything was as described on the website with no hype and often understated.

Pros: The attention to detail at every level

Cons: N/A

Location: Beautiful hill, woodland and coastal walks easily accessed.

5/5 Excellent

Quality and Comfort

I would say that Kerr Cottage is by far the best appointed Bed and Breakfast we have stayed in. The finer details were amazing. Liz has obviously put a lot of thought into how to give her clients the highest quality of comfort. The cleanliness was above reproach. Liz and Ian made us feel so welcome with their warmth and friendliness. The breakfast was lovely and just what we needed before a long day of driving. The cottage is in a very quiet area so we had a wonderful sleep. We would recommend Kerr Cottage to anyone without hesitation.

Pros: The attention to detail, right down to the lovely serviette rings, amazing

Cons: There were none whatsoever

Location: In a lovely quiet location, but within easy walking distance of restaurants and shops. A picturesque part of Scotland we didn't know existed.
