Friendly welcome on arrival. Pleasant room, comfortable bed. Located a short distance and pleasant walk to the town centre by the old railway line (10 mins). Good breakfast. Off road parking. Would recommend for a short break.

Location was very good, being about 10/15 minutes walk from the town centre. The accommodation was very good, the property being clean and well maintained. The food was excellent and the hosts, Sue and Gary, were very friendly and first class hosts.

we had a very pleasant time at Laurel B&B. I loved the homely feel of both the bedroom and the "living room", where an excellent breakfast (Full Scottish with a great variety of choices) was served. Gerry and his wife were super friendly and helpful. We also enjoyed biscuits and tea in our very room (ready each afternoon).
