    Lorraine and Bill were the perfect hosts. They were very welcoming and their home was lovely. In the morning Lorraine put on a fabulous variety of breakfast cereals, as well as fruit juice, tea, toast, jams and honey. She even offered me some fruit to take away with me! Perfect stay. Thank you both.

    Lorraine and Bill were very friendly and welcoming and keen to make us feel at home. The house is immaculate and our room was very nice with a comfy bed. As we had a very early flight from Edinburgh we didn't expect breakfast though Lorraine told us to help ourselves to coffee, tea, toast etc if we wanted. I thoroughly recommend this homestay and would gladly stay again.

    Wir kamen sehr spät an da sich unser Flug um etwas mehr als 2h verspätete, trotz allem wurden wir mit einer Tasse Tee und Gebäck herzlich empfangen.
    Es war ein sehr kurzer Aufenthalt da wir bereits nach dem super Frühstück bereits abreisten. Tolle Menschen, sauber und herzlich, gerne wieder.

    This was the first time I had ventured to stay in a Homestay accommodation. Where have you been all my travelling life?
    Lorraine and Bill were absolutely fabulous hosts and we spent a great evening discussing life, the universe and everything, while sipping on a dram or two.
    The bedroom was bright and roomy with a very comfortable bed and super clean separate, but private bathroom.
    Honestly it was great. I was told to literally make myself at home and help myself to what I need.
    I had to leave very early the next morning, so was told to help myself to breakfast and lock the door when I left.
    I felt welcome and trusted and that made so much difference.
    I hope that I, in turn, was a good house guest.

    Lorraine e suo marito sono stati molto gentili e disponibili. Camera un po' piccola ma carina, bagno privato ma non dentro la camera. Fermata bus vicino.

    Thank you Bruno for the 5 heart review. I'm sorry you felt the bedroom was a bit small but it is advertised on Homestay as cosy with a separate private bathroom.
