We stopped at Alexander House following a recommendation from a friend. We only required one overnight stay, on a trip to the Highlands, just to break the journey up. How I wish we could have stayed longer! The house - which is converted railway cottages - is very easy to find, being just a couple of minutes off the A74(M)....

We stayed here for 2 nights - 2 couples and a twin room for a wedding. Very pleased with the room, good size, spotlessly clean and nicely presented. Breakfast well cooked and presented , lots of choice for everyone. Would definitely recommend this b&b to everyone for all occasions. Owners were welcoming, friendly and helpful.

Room was spotless. Hosts welcoming and friendly. Breakfast was delicious. Would stay again and strongly recommend. Great value for money. We stayed in room 3. There was a bit of road noise during the night so if you are a light sleeper may be worth asking for a room at the other side of the house.

Our hosts went the extra mile for cleanliness, comfort, spacious room (#1), breakfasts, obliging, friendliness. If there are vacancies here, don't bother looking anywhere else - we couldn't fault anything, Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Easy walk from train station, but you don't hear the trains.
