Our hosts were very welcoming and made us feel completely at home welcoming us with a drink and lots of useful information. The bedroom was very good and comfortable and the breakfasts cooked by John were excellent.

Mavisburn is the best B&B we have stayed in. From a really warm welcome by Elaine and John with a cup of tea and biscuits to a fabulous en-suite room.
