Stables Guest House
Ranked #1 of 17 Newton Stewart B&B and Inns
Reviewed 12 May 2013

As a group of 4 mountain bikers some proprietors could be put off, but we were welcomed with open arms.

Bathroom etc. were clean, top notch and we wanted for nothing.

Breakfast was spot on with fantastic salmon and eggs on the menu. When we came back with takeout we were not only allowed to use the dining area, but offered plates and tea!

When we asked if we could have some water for our bike washer, she offered us a hose.

That's what makes the difference between good and great accommodation.

Just got back home having been marooned in Newtonstewart for two days by the unexpected blizzard conditions. Being unable to leave via any road we chanced upon The Stables and ended up staying for two nights. Jacqui was marvellous, adapting accommodation to fit as many waifs and strays in as possible. Excellent food, wonderful charitable welcome to all, up to date travel information and advice and excellent humour. I am sure that the prospcet of a captive audience stranded in town tempts many people to hike their prices based on demand. Not Jacqui, scrupulously fair to the end. Scottish Tourist Board please note, the very best example of Scots hospitality one could wish for

Room Tip: Pick any one, we had 2 doubles and a single. All were top class

We stayed for one night and really enjoyed it. Jacqui is the perfect hostess and makes you feel very welcome. The room was excellent and the breakfast was even better. There are many small touches that make you feel at home and there is a lovely sitting room. I would recommend a stay here to everyone.

We planned a visit to Newton Stewart at the start of the year, hoping to visit the Galloway Forest Dark Skies Park. Although the weather was not great for star gazing - the rest of our trip was very nice! We stayed 3 nights at Stables Guest House, we arrived to a very warm welcome from Jacqui. We stayed in a double room, which was very comfortable for two - the only complaint about the room was the low shower pressure. There was a nice variety of breakfast's offered in the morning (with products bought locally from nearby farms etc).

Jacqui was also very helpful when we asked about local things to see and do. She offered us maps and recommended some places to visit, and also a nice place to have evening meals - Galloway Arms Hotel, Newton Stewart - I would highly recommend a visit there, the food is very good and the prices are reasonable!

We stayed 4 nights here at the beginning of November. I visited from the US and took my parents who live in North Ayrshire.
Jaqui makes you feel welcome as soon as you walk through her door. Very comfortable rooms. Ideal sitting room for reading or playing games. The breakfast was outstanding . Highly recommend.

Room Tip: We were on the ground floor. Both rooms were en suite.

A most enjoyable stay in this B&B...Jacqui was a most welcoming and friendly host and nothing was a bother. Her breakfast was one of the best we have ever had at a B&B and was worth getting out of bed for. Rooms were spacious and clean with little extras not usually supplied at B&B's. Would certainly return if ever in the area again.

Quite apart from being in one of the loveliest and quietest parts of Britain, Stables Guest House offered a standard of comfort, excellent food (we had breakfast and packed lunch) and even more important, a friendliness which reflected in dealings with other guests. I stay in a lot of hotels and guest houses for my work but this one was a real pleasure. My wife and I would certainly visit again if we had the opportunity. Thanks for a lovely weekend. Peter Flynn
