“Valued comfort at Brora again”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 October 2012

Just had two nights at Brora Lodge, our second visit. The rooms are comfortable, even though there are only showers rather than baths, and just about big enough to make life easy. The welcome and hospitality were great, which shows consistency with our first visit, while the breakfasts in the conservatory were tasty, with good choice, and a superb outlook across the RSPB bird reserve. You'll see a review on here that criticises the Golden Shred marmalade - if that's all that's wrong then shred the reviewer for being too picky! A lot of effort goes into making this a B and B or rare quality and it shows. We rate comfort above price, although Brora Lodge is great value compared with others in Wigtown, and will be back soon.

Hello and thank you very much for your kind words. As a regular you now know we try our best with what we've got to offer here, to make sure your stay with us is as good as possible, and do we try to supply the best products and ingredients (in our humble opinion) to make our breakfasts the best. That includes offering a certain marmalade that the maker boasts is the best in the world (check the label), and with which we agree, and not just offering any old product just because its made in Scotland. We do not go in for the typical touristy tricks, we just want you all to have the best. We think the 50 odd excellent reviews confirm this and we are very happy that the majority of our guests are happy too.
Once again thank you for your support, and we look forward to ensuring your next stay is as good as the others.

This is our second stay this year, what a place, comfy,warm, good views, very clean and a very good breakfast. The conservatory was great setting for breakfast, hopefully we will get to sit out in the lovely garden to chill out next time. The other nice thing is you can come and go as you please any time of day and treat it like home.

We had 2 nights here and could recommend the B&B without hesitation.
Why have I not given it 5*s -
I am not a fan of man made fibre duvets?
We had a shower en suite not bath.
Little things like only Golden Shred marmalade - no Dundee stuff and in Scotland.
Just nit-picking.
The hosts were wonderful and the views from the breakfast extension to die for.
We would go back, and probably will, without hesitation.

Lovely views of the bay and such friendly hosts offering excellent food and welcome.Helen and Peter deserve every success. My wife would stay here all the time!! I'm biased as my mother is from the area and would live here!!

We have an office in Wigtown and use the Brora Lodge each time we need to visit our facilities in Wigtown. The rooms are perfect and the service is faultless. The owners always make us feel welcome and it feels like I am at home when I am there. The breakfast is wonderful. We often use the B&B for small company meetings where a lovely lunch has been provided. I would highly recommend it and will definitely be going back.

Room Tip: All rooms a excellent

Thank you very much for your very kind review, we appreciate your words very much, although we know its just a sneaky ploy to get a bigger portion for your breakfast next time! Don't worry, we're going to invest in some bigger plates just for you. Can't wait to see your happy smile once again in the near future. Thanks again, all the best, Pete and Helen.
PS We've got the ironing board ready........

What a fabulous place to stay and in a most beautiful part of Scotland. Helen & Peter have made this a home from home. The excellent service starts from the moment you arrive. They go out of their way to make sure you have a most pleasant stay. The room was excellent, and the breathtaking views from the conservatory make an already wonderful breakfast an absolute pleasure to eat. If you want to stay in this part of Scotland - Stay here.
