We had a one-night stay last night, while in town for a family gathering, and the hospitality was first-rate. Liz and Ian were friendly and welcoming on arrival, but were perceptive about leaving us to ourselves as well. Our room upstairs was very spacious, and beautifully lit from three windows (dormer to the front, wee window to the side, Velux...

High standard of finish, equipping and cleanliness. Lovely warm welcome. Highly recommended. Arrived after a day at work and a long drive. The bath and the handmade chocolates left in our room were particularly welcome!

Normally I stay in hotels and this was the first B & B I have ever stayed in. Kerr Cottage has set the bar high. Friendly, modern, clean and a 5* breakfast. Good local restaurants nearby within walking distance.

Recently stayed at Kerr Cottage and I genuinely believe no review will do this place justice. Liz was a perfect host who couldn't do enough for me during my brief stay (she even ironed my shirt). The house and rooms are immaculate and there was plenty of space in lounge to relax. The bed was very comfortable with quality linen,...
