“Fantastic Wedding anniversary venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 October 2011

Myself and my husband stayed here i7th and 8th August, and found the B&B to be spotless. The Service at breakfast couldn't have been better and the views stunning. We had great advice to fill our days from Pamela the host and enjoyed our time at Balcary Mews. We will definitely be returning with the children at a later date.

Room Tip: They are all good room, as Sea views

My husband and I booked two nights at Balcary Mews for our wedding anniversary and are so glad we did. The rooms were comfortable and well appointed, with thick fluffy towels in the ensuite bathroom. Delicious breakfasts with little extra touches such as English muffins on offer, and a wonderful quiet location with stunning views across the bay. Pamela the landlady is very friendly and helpful. Thank you, we'll be back!

Three nights here with a friend, on a painting and cycling break in this quiet scenic forgotten corner of Galloway, has me longing to return. There's a lot to see around here for lovers of history, art, music and gardens. The accommodation was spacious, spotless and very comfortable. A lovely conservatory with nice views of the gardens and the sea was an extra touch of luxury. The hostess was friendly, helpful and always available for advice or assistance, and she presented a very good fresh breakfast with nice touches like fresh fruit salad. I'm sure we'll be staying there again.

My husband and I stayed at the Balcary Mews B&B the last weekend of March for 2 nights, and we absolutely loved it. I stumbled upon the property after reading reviews of the hotel next door (the reviews were terrible, but the location seemed amazing so I was looking for something else close by). And I was absolutely thrilled, because I found a real gem.

The location is fabulous, and the views are simply breath-taking, including the views from our room and bath (we stayed at the Hestan). The proprietor Pamela was a lovely lady who greeted us with tea, scones and biscuits on our arrival in the lounge, which had lovely views over the garden, the sea and Hestan Island.

The room was spotlessly clean and so well stocked that we didn't need to ask for a single thing during our stay. Pamela had thought of everything, from the hairdryer to needle and thread, and story books! Breakfast was good and filling, and Pamela was so attentive without being overbearing, it was a real pleasure! The lounge also had a very good selection of books about the area.

There are amazing walks starting at the doorstep of the B&B, along the coast, cliffs, fields and even a lovely lake. Less than 30 minutes drive takes you to popular attractions in Dumfries and Galloway.

All in all, we had a very relaxing and wonderful stay, and we will certainly return. I cannot recommend this place enough.

Our second visit was just as good as our first! The ground floor room with en suite shower was great and the twin room on the first floor was equally nice. Welcoming owner provided delicious scones and home-made raspberry jam on arrival in garden room/conservatory. We had dinner again at the Balcary Bay Hotel next door and as usual the food was wonderful. We had an excellent breakfast and thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Pamela. Great base for exploring Castle Douglas and Kirkcudbright.

First time of staying at the Balcary Mews and would certainly recommend to all our friends and relatives. The house is spotless and so well cared for and you feel at home straight away thanks to Pamela who owns the house. We were welcomed with a tray of tea and scones and we ate these in the conservatory overlooking the fantastic gardens and the bay. Our room was excellent. The bed was huge and so comfortable we didnt want to get out of it in the morning. There was everything you needed down to bottled water, biscuits, various teas and coffees. Having stayed in various 5* hotels I am fair in saying that this is on par with them but more friendly. Breakfast was superb and I forgot to ask if the raspberry jam was home made it was delicious. Just a few yards down the lane and you were on the sea shore, not sandy but pleasant to lose yourself in thoughts of not returning to the 'rat race'. We will certainly stay at Balcary again. thank you Pamela you are a STAR.
