Really lovely B&B - stayed for one night but could quite easily have stayed longer. Lovely touches really added to the experience - fresh milk in a vacuum jug to keep cool, delicious homemade shortbread and fluffy towels and bathrobes. Everything was exceptionally clean (we had sea facing en-suite room) and the bed was so comfy. Totally delicious selection of breakfast goodies, I had porridge followed by smoked salmon and scrambled eggs and my husband had full Scottish - kept us going all day. Tim and Hilary are both lovely people and excellent hosts. Can't recommend Hawthorn House highly enough if you are in the area. We will be back I am sure.....

Stayed. For Burns night 2014
Nice big en suite room with views of the sea
Great welcome from the hosts
One of the best breakfasts we've had for a long time, all fresh ingredients and nothing too much trouble. Hope to be back next year

This is one of the best places we have ever stayed. Tim and Hilary are outstanding hosts, most helpful and very welcoming but never intruding on your privacy. The rooms are lovely, supplied with everything you need and much more. Breakfast was superb with excellent choices, and the views are amazing. On top of this it is extremely good value. Highly recommended!

Great value. Brilliant place to get away by the sea. Locals are very friendly. Very comfy. Fantastic breakfast. Hosts, Tim and Hilary, are lovely. Beautiful location by the sea. Just a short stay but felt so welcomed. Definitely recommend for anyone considering visiting Scotland. Can't recommend enough!!

Stayed at this wonderful bed & breakfast for one night, wish I could have stayed longer but work didn't permit. The room was lovely with some really nice touches. This was a bed & breakfast which is priced as a bed and breakfast but has the facilities and food of a large hotel. Hope to return soon.

Thanks very much for posting this review.
It is lovely to know that our guests enjoy their stay and great to see your generous comments.
I hope the "business" side of your trip went well (despite the weather) and that all your beasts had been well looked after upon your return home.
We hope you will stay with us again if you find yourself in Galloway.
Thanks again.
