Firstly I will start by saying what a lovely host Andrew was, he was so helpful and happy to do so. The breakfast (full Scottish) was delicious, it kept us full when out walking. Our room was a bit disappointing as there were bunkbeds and a double bed, more of a family room than for a couple. The decor could...

We are very glad that you enjoyed your stay in Wigtown; It is shame though that you did not appreciate the decor of our family room, nor the bunks which we have tried to hide around the corner as much as possible. It would appear that you made no preference when booking as to the choice of room and usually...

Located near the town centre with on site parking this is well worth considering if you plan to stay at Wigtown. Warm and friendly reception, spacious room, comfortable bed and excellent shower. Good quality all round including the free wifi, standard of toiletries, thick bath towels and excellent breakfast.

I stayed at Hillcrest House with my daughter on 26th October. Andrew was very warm and welcoming and showed us up to our beautiful room - the Solway twin. The room and bathroom were immaculate and very comfortable. The full Scottish breakfast that we chose from an extensive menu was delicious. I would definitely recommend Hillcrest House and plan to...

We chose to upgrade to a superior room before our arrival, using a buy a gift card for our 2 nt stay, paid an extra £30 for the 2 nts.well worth it. Lovely guest house, clean, parking, lovely breakfast. Shame nowhere to eat in the evening in Wigtown, but only a mile to bradnoch nearby which had a nice pub.

We were very warmly welcomed and shown up to a lovely room. The views were right across to the sea, and very comfortable armchairs placed to enjoy them. Everything was provided, including binoculars, a nice touch. Breakfast was excellent, 1st class poached egg.

What a wonderful gem of a hotel. Such welcoming owners, who are happy to help make your stay extra special. Our room (Dornoch) was wonderful, comfortable and luxurious. The shower was stunning, and the day bed lovely and comfy, with handmade coverings. Breakfast every day was fantastic, mostly from local suppliers. I thoroughly recommend the smoked salmon and scrambled eggs,...

We actually stayed here in June 2015 but trip advisor won't let me go back that far. This is a beautiful guest house close to the centre of Wigtown (famous for its book shops). Our host was pleasant and friendly, knowledgeable about the area, and yet left you to your privacy as required. The breakfast menu was varied from full...

Wigtown was a blind choice as a way point on our tour. Hillcrest was a pleasant surprise and well worthwhile. The hosts were a delightful couple who were proud of their beautiful house. Rooms were large with high ceilings and the lounge was well appointed.

Stayed in the Moray room with fantastic view over the Solway Firth. Short walk into town or down to the harbour. 3 course meal on first night was beautifully cooked and presented. Definitely recommend a stay here.
