Party of 4 for birthday. We stayed for 2 nights beginning of March, our lovely room was Dornoch, very warm and ample space. Daughter stayed in the moray room and that was superb. Excellent choice at breakfast, could not fault anything. Andrew was very attentive making sure we had enough to satisfy our needs. The free wifi was very good....

Hillcrest House is a beautiful house set in such a relaxing location. The rooms are second to none; we stayed in the Moray suite. Lovely ensuite, large room, comfortable bed and lots of little extras like airfreshner, shampoo, bodywash, hotwater bottle, hairdryer, binoculars, bath robes, TV with integrated dvd. Remember to bring you're own dvds though! Andrew the owner is...

lovely place with great hosts. This is a brilliant place to stay, and I would highly recommend it. For a good price you have such luxury and the pleasure of meeting genuinely warm people who have a passion for their business.

We booked at short notice and I rang to check a detail about the room. Debbie was extremely helpful and amended my booking so that we had the bed and bathroom combination that we would have ideally liked at no additional cost. Debbie also recommended a place for us to spend NYE in Wigtown. When we arrived we loved the...

We had a very large bedroom with a lovely view, and had a delicious home cooked evening meal on one night. Everything really comfortable. Our hosts were very helpful and welcoming, giving us useful information about the local area. There was a comfortable lounge as well. If we ever return to this area would definitely stay here again.

Firstly I will start by saying what a lovely host Andrew was, he was so helpful and happy to do so. The breakfast (full Scottish) was delicious, it kept us full when out walking. Our room was a bit disappointing as there were bunkbeds and a double bed, more of a family room than for a couple. The decor could...

We are very glad that you enjoyed your stay in Wigtown; It is shame though that you did not appreciate the decor of our family room, nor the bunks which we have tried to hide around the corner as much as possible. It would appear that you made no preference when booking as to the choice of room and usually...

Located near the town centre with on site parking this is well worth considering if you plan to stay at Wigtown. Warm and friendly reception, spacious room, comfortable bed and excellent shower. Good quality all round including the free wifi, standard of toiletries, thick bath towels and excellent breakfast.

I stayed at Hillcrest House with my daughter on 26th October. Andrew was very warm and welcoming and showed us up to our beautiful room - the Solway twin. The room and bathroom were immaculate and very comfortable. The full Scottish breakfast that we chose from an extensive menu was delicious. I would definitely recommend Hillcrest House and plan to...

We chose to upgrade to a superior room before our arrival, using a buy a gift card for our 2 nt stay, paid an extra £30 for the 2 nts.well worth it. Lovely guest house, clean, parking, lovely breakfast. Shame nowhere to eat in the evening in Wigtown, but only a mile to bradnoch nearby which had a nice pub.
