Mary was an excellent host who made us feel very welcome. I phoned in advance to find out if we could book in early. Mary was very accommodating and there was good communication arranging the booking. We had our own key so we could come and go as we pleased. The room was spotless and the bed with foam mattress...

I was attending a work's Christmas night out in the area and rather than going through the hassle of rushing home (25 miles), then getting public transport/taxis to get me to the night out then home again I decided to book a bed and breakfast stay in the area. Initial communication to book was very straightforward with my hostess sending...

Happy on all fronts, in Bathgate for a training course so booked 2 nights at The Gables. Price - I was happy with the price paid for budget accomodation, even more so when I arrived. Parking - I drive a van so parking is sometimes an issue but the generous parking was more than enough, there was also another van...

Easy booking and great communication from Mary, who is lovely. A warm welcome and a great room and quiet location. Close to the centre but but set back from the road to ensure you arent disturbed. Plenty of off street parking available. Rounded off with a delicious breakfast that would satisfy a hearty appetite. I'll be back next time I'm...

My Son Ian was on a course in the area. I called the Gables and Mary could not have been more helpful. As a young man away from home, he was made to feel so welcome and nothing was too much trouble for the owners including an alarm call. Breakfast was amazing and very substantial. The accommodation clean, spacious and...

Made to feel very welcome by Mary and Donald. I was on a 5 day trip to Scotland to take in Edinburgh city centre, a train journey to Mallaig, and a visit to Edinburgh speedway at Armadale. Just a 30 minute train ride from Edinburgh centre and 2 miles from Edinburgh speedway. If you are going to the speedway buses...

I've just spent a charming three nights at the Gables B&B in Bathgate. I was in the area for work and needed a place to rest, relax, write and get some emails sent and was very pleasantly surprised to be shown to a huge room despite being on my own. It was exceptionally clean with lovely linen on the beds...
