I have now stayed at the Border House on three separate occasions - each time just for one night. I am pleased to say that despite each time being shown to a room suitable for two people, I was not charged any single supplement.

For my first two visits, I had my dog with me, and was given the use of a ground floor twin-bedded room. This was very convenient, being close to the front door. In spite of the Border House being in the High Street in this small town, it is possible to park right outside the door, so unloading the dog, his cage and my own bags was not a problem. Some visitors may find this room a little noisy, as its window faces directly onto the High Street. Although there is not a great deal of passing traffic or pedestrians, there is inevitably some noise from outside, particularly in the early evening.

On my third visit, I was alone, and enjoyed a small double bedroom on the first floor at the back of the house. This room overlooks the garden, so there is absolutely no noise here.

Both rooms I have stayed in have been immaculately clean and freshly presented. All the rooms at the Border House have ensuite facilities, with complimentary tea and coffee, and TV/DVD players. I found the beds very comfortable.

Breakfast was served in the conservatory at the back of the house. There is a choice of cereals, toast, tea or coffee, and a freshly cooked 'full breakfast' is available. Breakfast is included in the modest price for a room. Service is efficient and friendly. The host and hostess have extensive local knowledge should you need it.

With the Border House being in the centre of the town, it is a matter of just a few yards walk to the nearest take-away, pubs, banks and variety of shops. The little town of Langholm is interesting, and well worth exploring. It offers a network of waymarked walks along the riverside and into the surrounding countryside. There is also an assortment of fascinating historical buildings in the town.

Room Tip: If the possibility of traffic noise bothers you, ask for a room at the back of the house.

Gillian was a great host and could not do enough for us. We had cycled for 9 hours and she washed and dried all our kit The breakfast was brilliant with a fantastic choice.The accomodation was very clean and had just been re-decorated. Overall we had a short but great stay and would not hesitate in staying there again.

Room Tip: Book early.

We were greeted at the front door by Gillian before we had even got off the bike. The welcome was very warm and we were directed to the garage and met by Dennis and the bike was secured over night. We were shown to our room which was lovely and spotlessly clean.

After settling in we decided to go out and find something to eat. Before leaving we were met by Dennis who asked us when we would like our breakfast the following day. He also recommended the restaurant at the Douglas Hotel for dinner which serves local produce. We had an excellent meal at the Douglas.

The breakfast was lovely as much cereal, juice and coffee as you would like and whatever you would like from the cooked selection. The quality of the ingredients were excellent.

We stayed for 2 nights and we would have both been happy to stay longer - unfortunately we had to leave.

Gillian and Dennis are excellent hosts who clearly care about their business and their guests. Nothing is too much trouble and I would have no problem recommending this B&B to anybody.

The B&B is ideally situated for exploring Scotland and the Lakes and we are very much looking forward to visiting again soon

The excellent hosts at border house make those arriving on 2 wheels (motorised or peddle powered) extremely welcome. They have a large garage in which the bikes can be stored over night. The location is ideal for explpring the area or even day trips down to the lake district. One really interesting visit is to the Tibiten Budist Centre just 14 miles away. The town is well worth a visit especially on the last Friday in July
The rooms are excellent and well maintained, The breakfast is of excellent quality and large enough to set you up for the rest of day. There are several good eating establishments within walking distance for evening meals
