One of the most beautiful bed and breakfasts I have ever stayed in. The house, hosts and breakfast were second to none. Lovely stay and hope to return. House located in a convenient part of Scotland close by to wide variety of activities, I.e. Golf courses, walking, Etc.

I stayed at the Hermitage Guest House for two nights. Andrew and Pauline are wonderful hosts. They make sure that everything is just perfect from their first hello to checkout. Pauline's breakfasts are fantastic! Try the pancakes. You will thank me. Very quiet small town, but beautiful place to make as base.

We went directly to this place and checked on the evening. This area is always nearly fully booked event in low season (mid September). The room is large and complete, there were two beds, two armchairs, a table, wine glasses, tea set, etc. Two big windows overlook the quite street in the front of the house. From time to time...

Disappointed that you marked us down for Service when we obliged you with an early Breakfast. You cold called at around 16:00 asking for a room, you viewed the room and before committing you asked what time Breakfast was served and asked the price of the room.

Just got back from 4 days at The Hermitage. What a lovely place. The room was very tastefully done out and the bathroom was excellent. The shower was powerful and hot.

Thank you for your review, with regard to the beds we do opt for "firmer" mattresses as experience has shown that the majority of people prefer this style of sleeping, maybe you are used to a much softer American bed? Not sure how many people you wanted to get in the bathroom as this is a room for two people... More

“Trium is fantastic if you have 3 in your party like we had, myself and my two daughters stayed together in this very roomy comfortable room.”
  • Single bed side of the Trium room...the only triple room we found.
  • View from the single bedded area (it was a bit of a cloudy day)
  • The twin part of the room, very spacious and comfortable
