We couldn't have asked for more from this lovely B&B! Mike and Liz are great hosts, welcoming and helpful in every way. Our room, the History room was so comfortable with really interesting furnishings, a huge amount of space and a lovely deep bath.

Not only is this hotel (B&B) so very peaceful and quiet, the breakfasts cooked by Mike are pleasure, to look forward too. Mike uses local Ayrshire Back Bacon and Liz's eggs from her hen's. Liz’s breads, marmalade and jam’s are absolutely delicious. Both Liz and Mike are so friendly and there is absolutely nothing; they will not do for you....

We really enjoyed our stay. We were made to feel very welcome. It's a beautiful place and the owners have out a lot of effort into making it so special. Everything we could possibly need was thought of. Thankyou. We have already booked our next stay.

We were staying only the one night for a wedding in the area and felt very welcome and relaxed during our stay. The décor was to a good standard with comfortable areas to relax and enjoy the views. The breakfast was exceptional and were the hosts. Definitely go back and definitely recommend this place!

Spent 2 nights here. Huge comfortable rooms. Great breakfast and you have to have the homemade jam. Mike and Liz are wonderful hosts. We would definitely recommend the Old School House to anyone visiting the area!

We stayed at the old school overnight when attending a nearby wedding. Mike and Liz could not have been more helpful or friendly. We were given our room early to allow us to change for wedding and freshen up. The next morning we had a delicious freshly cooked breakfast including eggs from the chickens outside and some of Liz's lovely...

Fantastic character to both the owners and the B+B, the Old School is so much nicer than your old primary school but has lovely details that will remind you of all the best things about your primary school. The subject themed rooms are delightful and so we appointed you'd think you were in a 5* hotel. breakfast was beautifully presented...

We were going to a wedding nearby and needed a place to stay. This was a superb choice and enhanced our weekend break. Our hosts could not have been more welcoming. It really IS an old primary school. Liz has added many wonderful curios that reminded me of my childhood. The room was very spacious with an excellent 4 poster...
