“Brilliant visit ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 January 2014 via mobile

An amazing B&B! Has everything you wish to have being home from home! We stayed for a rally and therefore not always there at set times and with having own door meant no distribution to others.
A must to try is definitely the homemade muesli - the best I have ever tasted!
Would definitely stay there again a real gem!

Stayed October 2013, travelled as a couple

Stayed for one night on business. Couldn't fault the place, nor my hostess.

I almost posted a photograph of the breakfast on Instagram - it was so perfect that I felt that eating it would be destroying a masterpiece. But I did. It was worth it.

I shall certainly stay there again. Peerless...

Tina and robin provided exceptional service throughout our stay. The room was comparable to many four and five star hotels we have stayed in. Warm with underfloor heating, spotlessly clean, comfortable beds, I could go on.
The breakfast was one of the nicest I have enjoyed.
Nothing was too much trouble for this couple and it showed in the product.
Finally , we were made to feel part of the family and cannot recommend this establishment highly enough

My wife and I have been regular B&B users throughout Scotland for over 20 years. Summerhill tops the lot. The accommodation, food and friendly hostess is as good as it gets. Always prepared to do a littlle bit extra to ensure you get the best in comfort and service.
Will definitely go back

Room Tip: Worth paying a little extra for own access room

The Summerhill is near the top end of the Scottish B&B price range but – based on our overnight stay – it is worth every penny. The accommodation and furnishing in the ground floor Superior Double room were first class - we really were taken with the walk in shower/wetroom. There is as much internet communication and audio visual technology in the room as you would ever want. Tina was the perfect hostess – friendly, kind and extremely helpful – she provided us with a torch to help us on our walk into and back from Castle Douglas that night. She even cleared our car windscreen of ice the next morning and went to the trouble to post – first class – the pair of spectacles we inadvertently left behind – how’s that for service? The best B&B breakfast ever. Treat yourself to this gem of a B&B in Castle Douglas when visiting this lovely part of Scotland.

Thank-you very much to Tina for a beautifully clean and warm room, high-quality furnishings, crisp bedding and every need pre-empted. The breakfast was a feast for the eyes as well as the stomach! I particularly appreciated the lovely china, and also the home-made granola! Many thanks again Tina

We arrived in Castle Douglas after a long drive, and found Tina had a room available for the night.
Tina welcomed us with a full explanation of the facilities, and also where to enjoy an evening meal in town.
The house is truly delightful, with modern amenities of the highest standard. The first floor room was spacious, and really well equipped, the choices of tea, coffee etc. were fantastic, as were the bathroom toiletries.
Breakfast was a special treat, nothing is too much trouble for Tina, and the delicious food was served with a lovely smile, she certainly is a perfect hostess.
Thanks again for looking after 2 weary travellers.

Colin & Catherine.
