The breakfast is amazing - local haggis, sausages and bacon, with eggs, fresh mushrooms and much more - she even has mastered the art of the perfect poached egg. Fresh fruit (in January!) My room had a shower room with everything - hot towel rail, shampoo, conditioner, soap (of a...

We decided to take a trip to Dalbeattie to see family. We booked Kerr Cottage after my girlfriend's mother and aunty recommended. What a warm welcome we got!

Kerr Cottage became my all time favorite B&B this week. It is flawless - Liz and Ian are wonderful hosts, the rooms are lovely and clean and all the amenities are of high quality. The breakfast was fantastic. I will return to Dalbeattie just to stay there again!

We had a one-night stay last night, while in town for a family gathering, and the hospitality was first-rate. Liz and Ian were friendly and welcoming on arrival, but were perceptive about leaving us to ourselves as well. Our room upstairs was very spacious, and beautifully lit from three windows (dormer to the front, wee window to the side, Velux...

High standard of finish, equipping and cleanliness. Lovely warm welcome. Highly recommended. Arrived after a day at work and a long drive. The bath and the handmade chocolates left in our room were particularly welcome!

Normally I stay in hotels and this was the first B & B I have ever stayed in. Kerr Cottage has set the bar high. Friendly, modern, clean and a 5* breakfast. Good local restaurants nearby within walking distance.

Recently stayed at Kerr Cottage and I genuinely believe no review will do this place justice. Liz was a perfect host who couldn't do enough for me during my brief stay (she even ironed my shirt).
