Thank you for a lovely stay and for the great breakfast! Douglas House is run by the lovely Linda, who has great local knowledge. The room was really clean and cosy complete with tea and coffee making facilities and a TV. Thanks again and thanks for our upgrade. Beci & Adam

We booked this for a stop-over between Stranraer and Northumberland, influenced by great reviews on TA, and couldn't have been more pleased that we did. One night was not enough time to really appreciate this spotless and so comfortable B&B, with such thoughtful things in the room - cafetiere and fresh coffee, quality herbal teas, mints, fudge, nice toiletries -...

Central location, helpful hostess, good parking, spotlessly clean, nice touches (e.g. cafietere coffee in room) and excellent breakfast. The locally smoked salmon is particularly good - much of the breakfast ingredients are locally sourced.

Stayed two nights with young daughter and our family dog. Felt extremely welcome and at home. We stayed in the lovely large downstairs bedroom with fabulous ensuite. Everything immaculately clean and well appointed. Absolutely delicious breakfasts and nothing was too much trouble for Linda and John.

This is a very welcoming B&B, beautifully presented with lots of very thoughtful touches in the bedroom - such as a hot water bottle for colder nights. Our room looked over the back garden, so was very quiet and had a lovely big bathroom. Breakfast was delicious, cooked and served by Linda and John, the very friendly owners.
