    Loved our stay at Albion House. There were 10 adults, a toddler and 2 dogs. It was great having two big living rooms for those nights we wanted to do different things, but also great selection of board games for when we wanted to gather as a family and do a group activity. The playroom was perfect for my two and a half year old, and he loved the garden play set. Dogs also loved the garden (but just a note, there is a gap under one of the gates that wee dogs could sneak under so do keep an eye on them). The kitchen was really well equipped with ample crockery, glasses, cutlery and pots - the best kitchen I have ever stayed in and we rent in Scotland every year. The owners were great at communicating and left a wonderful welcome pack and an extra wee gift at the end of our stay. I would recommend this house in a heartbeat. Only (constructive) criticism I have is that the double in the en-suite is a bit small for 2 people - but on the flip side the top floor rooms/bathrooms were impeccable.

    The house is huge but warm and comfortable. Hide and seek games brilliant. The constant hot water a bonus if family are walking or taking part in activities that require a shower when they return. And the shed to store bikes very helpful. There are just some small details which would have made our overall experience better. Kitchen large with lots of cupboards, mostly empty, and only basic equipment although pans, cutlery, crockery plentiful. Two large lounges, both have two lovely leather sofas but no armchairs. At a large family gatherings, (the best use of this house), it means people sit in a row or on the floor if sitting all together. Playing board or card games only possible on the dining table, away from everyone else. Bed linen, (not ironed but maybe that’s just a personal like), towels etc clean and most beds comfortable. With such a large house to clean it is probably inevitable that some corners get missed but on the whole very clean. Biggest let down is the location on the very busy A75, but on the whole we found Castle Douglas a good central location for reaching the coast and hills of Galloway. Owner very helpful, answered any queries almost immediately and we felt welcome.

    A fabulous house with loads of room Very well appointed and we were made to feel welcome with lots of local hints and tips. A fantastic family venue. We did not have very young children, but if we did, they would have loved it - can see it is very family friendly. Warmly recommended and wodl definitely return.

    We really enjoyed our stay at Albion House. It was big enough for a company of 8 adults, 3 children and an infant. House was very comfortable and spacious. It could do with a good dusting around the house and specially on windows. Will stay there again.

    The house was comfortable and warm and there was plenty of room for our large party. The kitchen was well equipped and the owners had left a folder with excellent clear instructions for everything. It is only 5 minutes' walk from a good sized Tesco store, which was very convenient. The three young children in our party very much enjoyed the playroom and the large garden, when the weather was suitable. And it was great having two sitting rooms, both with TV, to meet the different viewing tastes!
