I arrived late friday night and was met by a very welcoming host who showed me my room and handed over the keys. John was very kind and helpful, even though i arrived later than the usual check-in time. I got the Stewart room, and it was just excellent! A big ensuite room with a king size bed waited. Just what I needed after my trip from Norway to Linlithgow. John and Gillian had given a lot of thought to the interior, design and all the extra. On each side of the bed was a bottle of water, there were fresh fruit on the commode and even a water boiler with all sorts of tea and coffee. There was a fridge in the hallway outside the room where there always was milk, and a box with nuts and crackers. I was impressed!
I stayed at Strawberry Bank House for a week - and I enjoyed every minute. The breakfast was amazing - you could help yourself at a table with cereal, yoghurts and several sorts of juice. After the hostess had welcomed you and made sure everything was alright, she asked if I wanted fresh tea or coffee. A menu was situated on the table, it contained everything from 'Full Scottish Breakfast' (which by the way tasted really good) to 'Smoked Scottish Salmon'. After I had made up my mind, Gillian came and took my order and then I didn't have to wait long before the meal was placed in front of me. Every morning was like this - beautiful..!
The room was cleaned and the bed was made up every day while I was out, and I could lock my self in whenever I wanted with my universal key. And the location was excellent - Strawberry Bank House is situated maximum 5 minutes from the train station and the main street.
This was the first time I had stayed at a B&B, and something tells me that it will be one of my best B&B-stays. I have absolutely nothing negative to say and I would absolutely recommend staying here. Thank you very much for a pleasant stay John and Gillian!
