“Best B & B we have ever stayed in!”
Reviewed 18 August 2012

The best bed and breakfast guest house we have ever stayed in without doubt. Helen is a very generous host and Erin is delightful. Breakfasts keep you going all day and a proper bath, not just a shower is ideal after a day's walking. We will most certainly be returning next year.

Room Tip: Good choice of rooms: single, double, family and twin all very quiet.

I booked a room for my elderly father who was travelling alone and attending a family event locally. He was well taken care of and was delighted with his accommodation and breakfast. A delightful place to stay with hard working owners who go that extra mile.

B & B, big comfortable room with a lovely bathroom. Plenty of tea, coffee, chocolate and milk in the room. Breakfast freshly cooked, plentiful and very tasty, variety of fresh chopped fruit, cereals and yoguarts. It is right in the heart of one of prettiest locations the Dumfries and Galloway area, Gatehouse of Fleet. Would recommend Bobbin and would definitely stay again.

The Bobbin is without doubt the best Bed and Breakfast I have ever stayed in.
I can (and do) recommend it to anyone staying that area.
Helen, Jamie & Erin are lovely, engaging and extremely helpful (nothing is the slightest bother)
Room are comfortable and a good size and the breakfasts, well, HUGE is the only world for it. I dare anyone to eat cereal, fruit and a full cooked breakfast (freshly cooked to your particular choice) that is on offer every day.
It is even ideally situated between two restaurants which are both no more than 5mins away.
Truly a 5* experience, I really cannot find a bad thing to say.
Will definitely be back!

A great family run business with comfortable, well-equipped room. Helen, Jamie & Erin couldn't have been more friendly or helpful. Breakfast was plentiful, varied and very tasty.

Gatehouse is a great base for the area. Plenty to do and see. Will most definitely going back again !!

Well-located on Gatehouse High Street (no parking charges!), very comfortable, traditional, well-appointed, very friendly. Helen's breakfasts are renowned - plenty of choice, high quality, and we certainly had no complaints about quantity! Conveniently placed for lunch / dinner options: the Murray Arms is five minutes walk in one direction, and the Ship and the Mill on the Fleet not much further in the other.
Very highly recommended.

Hospitality takes many forms. Oftimes it is the minimum. I am happy to say that Helen took it to the maximum! So friendly, helped us with our luggage and parking (in the rear), and even made us an impromptu dinner when all the pubs and restaurants shut doen at 9:00PM. Clean and comfortable - full credits.
