I stayed here for two nights with my mum who is 80. We were in the twin room on the ground floor which was ideal for her, with a big walk-in shower. It was very spacious and well equipped, including lovely toiletries by Pure Lakes. The hotel has separate dining and sitting rooms, and again this was ideal as we...

We booked a 2 night stay mainly on the basis of comments on this site. All of the excellent reviews are entirely justified. Andrew, the owner, came out to greet us and help with our baggage. He was unfailingly friendly and pleasant and made us very welcome. We had dinner on the evening we arrived and it was superb. Andrew...

We had a lovely 2 nights at this hotel in a large spacious room. Really enjoyed the breakfast & hospitality from Deborah & Andrew & could not recommend this place highly enough. All the rooms, dining, lounge, stairway were all tastefully decorated which made our stay very enjoyable.

Me and my fiancée Sarah stayed here last weekend and again we weren't disappointed. We booked the dog friendly room which was just stunning with a separate large shower room and a day bed. The owners can't do enough for you and you are made to feel that you are in your own home. The breakfasts are fantastic but I...

Party of 4 for birthday. We stayed for 2 nights beginning of March, our lovely room was Dornoch, very warm and ample space. Daughter stayed in the moray room and that was superb. Excellent choice at breakfast, could not fault anything. Andrew was very attentive making sure we had enough to satisfy our needs. The free wifi was very good....

Hillcrest House is a beautiful house set in such a relaxing location. The rooms are second to none; we stayed in the Moray suite. Lovely ensuite, large room, comfortable bed and lots of little extras like airfreshner, shampoo, bodywash, hotwater bottle, hairdryer, binoculars, bath robes, TV with integrated dvd. Remember to bring you're own dvds though! Andrew the owner is...

lovely place with great hosts. This is a brilliant place to stay, and I would highly recommend it. For a good price you have such luxury and the pleasure of meeting genuinely warm people who have a passion for their business.

We booked at short notice and I rang to check a detail about the room. Debbie was extremely helpful and amended my booking so that we had the bed and bathroom combination that we would have ideally liked at no additional cost. Debbie also recommended a place for us to spend NYE in Wigtown. When we arrived we loved the...

We had a very large bedroom with a lovely view, and had a delicious home cooked evening meal on one night. Everything really comfortable. Our hosts were very helpful and welcoming, giving us useful information about the local area. There was a comfortable lounge as well. If we ever return to this area would definitely stay here again.
