I brought my 80 year old dad to the hotel so we could fish on his favorite river, which is only 100m away from the house. The hotel is excellent, bright and very comfortable rooms which are run by a very welcoming husband and wife team of Stuart and Rosie. They made us so welcome and ensured every aspect of...

Many thanks for your kind review. It's a really nice compliment to be told that we've contributed to good memories. It's also nice to be able to put on record that the are fish to be caught in the River Nith.

Being a 5* establishment our expectations were high, yet they were easily exceeded. Everything about Holmhill just exudes quality, and the experience was made even more enjoyable by the perfect hosts Stewart and Rosie.

An excellent B&B with extremely comfortable well furnished rooms. The owners Rosie and Stuart are extremely friendly and helpfu, ensuring that our stay was most enjoyable. Restaurants were recommended and booked for us with the offer of transportation if necessary. Small touches in the rooms such as docking stations and a decanter of sherry/whisky added to the overall impression of...

Many thanks for your kind review. Come and stay with us again and play golf at the Thornhill course. It's not quite Troon but has lots of other things going for it.

Served a pot of tea and biscuits on arrival that we took in the garden. The bedroom was beautifully and comfortably decorated. Had dinner in the dining room. No alcohol license, but can bring your own wine. Made very welcome by Rosie & Stewart.

If travelling a distance to Scotland this is an excellent stopover. Travelling north after leaving the motorway an easy drive up the A75/76 to the venue. Heading up north later a very nice, if twisty drive, through the Lowther hills back to the M74. The house is a delight. Spacious grounds so very quiet. Friendly and helpful owners (they happily...

Many thanks for your kind review. We do aim to convince more people that it's well worthwhile taking a little (or a big) detour off the M74 to explore beautiful Dumfries and Galloway.

Holmhill is a very comfortable B&B. Rosie and Stewart are excellent hosts and are very warm and friendly. The quality of accommodation is excellent and the bed was very comfortable. Everything about this B&B is quality. You will not be disappointed with your choice.

Only stopped one night as a way-stop when returning from the Western Isles to the Midlands. Also - we were the only couple in that night. However - we were made more than welcome I have to say. The house is beautiful, as is the room (we had the Douglas Room). We had also booked dinner & this was also...

I haven't been myself but both my bosses, who tend to be quite fussy have stayed and loved this place! Stewart is great and always goes above and beyond. One of my bosses, left his credit card behind and Stewart was straight on ball to help us get it delivered safely back to London.

We spent three nights at Holmhill during October half-term. We booked this lovely B&B because of the excellent reviews it had received on Trip Advisor. We can say, simply, that it exceeded our expectations in every way.

Stayed here for a night en route to Oban. Rosie and Stewart were so welcoming, and made us feel like we were staying in their home. Luxurious bathroom and contemporary bedroom, combined with period charm of the house. A lovely view to match! Breakfast was spot on too. We will return.
