“Another happy guest :)”
Reviewed 20 February 2013

We stayed at four different places in various locations while doing a mini tour of Scotland and this was by far the best place we stayed in.
Our room was large and comfortable and the bathroom well stocked with beautiful organic bath products. The location is perfect with views over the wetlands and just a short walk from the harbour and a short drive in to Galloway Forest Park (our reason for visiting this particular area).
This was the only place we stayed in that offered a vegetarian alternative for breakfast, and a delicious, freshly cooked one at that.
Andrew and Deborah were really friendly and welcoming. We also appreciated all the quirky personal touches such as the oriental ornaments which gave a feel of staying in a big beautiful home.

Our only regret about staying here is that we didn't stay long enough. Galloway Forest is incredibly beautiful and we were so relaxed and comfortable at Hillcrest we could easily have stayed a lot longer. Next time...

Room Tip: We stayed in Beuly which is a large family room and has beautiful views of the wetlands.

The Hillcrest is a lovely place to stay if you decide to visit Wigtown. Andrew is a an absolute gentle giant and bends over backwards to ensure your stay is as comfortable and pleasant as possible. He even let our small family move rooms so our little treasure could get a bath. We only stayed b+b, the breakfast was excellent. Cooked to perfection from the elusive but talented Deborah ! Other guests lavished high praise for the dinner, superb and mouthwatering being popular remarks. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and exploring the local area we found many options.

Have just had a 2 night stay at the Hillcrest and would have loved to have stayed gor another 2 nights. Beautiful rooms we stayed in the moray which has the bay window and four poster bed . Great big room and is decorated beautifully. We also booked to have dinner for the 2 nights and so glad we did the food is excellent not one complaint also the breakfast is 10 out of 10 . The owner Andrew could not do enough for us and a lovely man . We will be paying the Hillcrest another vist and hopefully soon .

We have just stayed for 2 nights and were made to feel extremely welcome, as was our dog Jess- there was a treat and dog bowls waiting for her in our room on our arrival, which was lovely! The room had a great view and was warm, spacious and very clean. The range of Fair Trade tea & coffee in the room was also a very nice treat. Breakfast was superb and the hospitality was faultless, we will stay again if touring in the area (which also offered lots to see and do).

We've stayed twice at Hillcrest House in Wigtown and would choose it again when in the area. The large house has lovely comfortable rooms--ours had a great view to the hills. Deborah and Andrew are excellent hosts and make sure guests are well cared for. The breakfast is outstanding. Located only a few minutes walk from all the bookstores and interesting church in town, Hillcrest House is a wise choice.
