My husband I spent a very pleasant night recently at Lumsdaine House and I would definitely recommend it to other travellers. The owner gave us a very warm welcome and made our stay as pleasant as possible. She even found space for us in her fridge and freezer for some of our food shopping! Wifi access is easy and problem free.
The double room was very spacious and light (room 1), with a large comfortable bed and the bathroom was also a very good size (pretty unusual for most B and B's). I enjoyed the breakfast which included a nice selection of fresh fruit, lean bacon and homemade drop pancakes (a Scottish speciality) and scones. We sat at the same large dining table as the other guests, a Belgian family and a couple from Austria and enjoyed the multinational conversation that took place.
We hadn't fancied a cup of tea on arrival but were pleasantly surprised to be handed a small pack of homemade shortbread as we left, a very sweet gesture.
If I were asked what could make this B and B experience even better than it was, it would be cotton rather than poly cotton mix bedding and larger bath towels...but then I would never be that fussy now would I?!
