Summerhill is the most comfortable and stylish B&B we have been to in the last 4 years. We stayed 2 nights to visit Dumfries & Galloway (a beautiful destination). The room was lovely the breakfast out of this world. Home made granola which was a delight. Tina is a charming host. Highest possible recommendation.

The rooms are superb with a big comfy bed, leather settee, tea and coffee making facilities and biscuits. The attention to detail is exceptional....

My wife and I were connected to the Summerhill b&b when we booked a cycling trip through the associated galloway holidays. We were treated to the best Scottish hospitality while cycling for 7 days and finished up at Robin and Tina's pristine haven. Meticulously clean, modern, and appointed as a 5 star hotel. Breakfast was exceptional with smoked salmon eggs...

We received a very warm welcome from Tina when we arrived, having had no difficulty finding the property in a quiet cul de sac. We were shown to our self contained accommodation which had been well planned and was beautifully furnished. All the furnishings were of a very high standard. A lovely touch was the fresh white roses in a...

We stumbled upon this lovely B&B during our honeymoon. Although living abroad & having travelled extensively, we would struggle to recollect a better place we have stayed. Tina the owner has done a fabulous job - breakfast is award winning & rooms are delightful.
