Knight's Rest Guest House
Ranked #1 of 9 Airdrie B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 31 March 2014

Having known John as a friend and colleague fir many years and Cean since he came to this country we were surprised by the the decision to buy a B andB especially in Scotland. Having visited twice now we are delighted that John and Cean have made such a huge success of their venture. They have set themselves a very high standard and work hard to ensure that this is kept up. The place is a delight to visit, clean, warm , welcoming, very peaceful and with a great sense of hospitality from Cean's inimitable catering skills, brilliant breakfasts and delicious cakes on arrival to John's people skills which will ensure that your time spent at Knigt's Rest will be a very memorable break. All rooms freshly refurbished to a very high standard, truly home from home

Spent 4 nights in this lovely B and B. Very nicely decorated rooms that are spacious and immaculately clean. Very warm and friendly service and an excellent breakfast in the morning. I would definitely stay here again when visiting Airdrie.

Room Tip: Rooms at back would be quieter

This is our second stay at the guest house since John and Cean took over. They have decorated the bedrooms and now it had the "wow" factor. The bedrooms of immaculate,cosy and warm, hospitality outstanding and you are always greeted with a friendly smile. The guest house is central for everything you wish to do when staying there. 2 hour trip took us to Glenshee to see the lovely scenery and snow covered mountains. On return to a fantastic day we were greeted with a cup of coffee and one of Cean's famous cheese scones. We found breakfast cooked to perfection to the customers requirements and it was a lovely start to the day. There is plenty off street parting and looking forward to staying there again with family.

My husband and I spent the weekend, Friday to Sunday, at the "Knights Rest" in Aidrie, as he had stayed there in the past, on his own, whilst visiting Glasgow and was very impressed with it. We were welcomed by John and Cean, who both go out of their way to ensure you have everything you need - nothing is a bother. Cean even makes his speciality cheese scones for his guests as a welcome treat ... Ummmm .... I can still smell them. The rooms are immaculate with En Suite facilities, large screen LCD TV, tea and coffee facilities and Wifi. Beds and wonderfully comfortable. The breakfasts are delicious, full Scottish, plus cereals, toast, teas and coffees and all cooked fresh. Just put your order in the night before and let Cean or John know what time you would like it served.

There was free parking at the back of the building and only a five minute walk to the train station. We left the car at the "Knights Rest" and took the train into Glasgow. Wonderful day out. On returning to Aidrie there is every take-away you can think of only minutes away from the guest house.

Had a wonderful weekend, definitely "home from home". Very reasonable, warm and friendly. Thank you John and Cean for making our weekend so special. Will definitely visit again and would thoroughly recommend a stay.

Ask the question ? What do you want from a B&B?

Hospitality: A lovely welcome which stays with you for the duration of your stay.
An suite Warm Clean comfortable room with tea/coffee making facilities , large screen TV and Wi.Fi.
Good wholesome well cooked breakfast
Free off road parking
All for a reasonable price
This may read like an advert but it is my personal needs for a good B&B and although I wasn’t the one who made the booking I was delighted that it ticked all my boxes and would definitely go back if in the area.
You may have other boxes to tick but I’m sure it would fit your needs as
the proprietors go out of their way to accommodate their guests.
John and Cean (engage in conversation give all of the local information you might need and can take a good laugh even if it is at themselves.!!
They, John and Cean only took this business over in June of last year and in that short time have obviously made it their goal to make a success of it
which they are very obviously achieving and I wish them the same success for many years to come.
You’ll leave here feeling you have made some new friends.
So in short if you are looking for B&B in the Airdrie area I strongly recommend you look here first.
A message to John and Cean. keep up doing what you obviously do best

Had a fantastic stay at "Knights Rest" and can highly recommend it. Spotless clean, warm and cosy, lovely decor with all the home comforts you could desire. Plenty off street parking spaces, which made for an easy life. Breakfast was delicious as were Cean's homemade cheese scones, and he even gave us some home with us too. John and Cean seem to be cut out for the B&B business (which is a rare treat these days). They were very helpful with directions etc and are full of fun. Actually, they are the type of people you would like to have as good friends. We all had a fab. fun time and will return if we're ever in this area again. We would like to wish you good luck in your new business venture, boys.
