Douglas House is an exceptionally good B & B. Spacious rooms, well appointed, good decor, comfy bed, excellent attention to detail. Linda was a welcoming and pleasant host, and provided an excellent breakfast in the very pleasant breakfast room. Wish I could have stayed longer.

Despite the lateness, 10.30pm, we were made welcome & offered fresh milk for drinks. We stayed in room 1, twin beds with ensuite. It was a lovely spacious room,...

Located right at the centre of Castle Douglas, we were well positioned for a short walk to the high street. It was very peaceful and our room was very clean and pleasant. Lovely hosts and excellent breakfast to set us up for the day!

Once again another visit and we were not disappointed. Linda greets you as a friend and not a guest.

We were welcomed by Linda and shown to our room. The room was spotlessly clean, light, bright and airy. The bathroom was very large an very well appointed and again spotlessly clean.

Stayed here twice recently on business. Rooms are big, bright and clean. The breakfast selection is amazing and food quality good Parking is a bit hit and miss. It can be a bit noisy if you have a room to the front at the weekend. Good value for money.
