My partner and I were travelling back to Glasgow from London and he suggested that we stop over halfway for one night to give us a break. I found this lovely little gem and did not hesitate to book.

We spent two nights in total here, one night at a time. From the start of planning this trip it was very easy to deal with Karen from NZ. The B&B is lovely, has a great breakfast, good ensuite, everything we could possibly need. Karen was great with locations, maps, and parking. A very good place to stay for the...

Thank you very much for your comments on just how easy it is to make a direct reservation with me (rather than through the internet) even from abroad. It's much better for me and it's cheaper for the guest. Free parking for that hire car too! Thank you for this marvellous review. Karen.

Thank you so, so much for booking direct with me rather than on line. It really is appreciated. I am delighted that you found me to be very helpful and friendly - I really do have to be organised as I run The Acer by myself (disorganisation would be a disaster!). Thank you for this glowing review, Karen.

"Fabulous room", thank you so much. I am very pleased that you enjoyed your stay and my Award winning breakfasts. With FREE parking and a great location, on a quiet residential street only 10 minutes walk from the city, I am not entirely surprised that would "highly recommend" The Acer. Thank you for the fabulous review, Karen.

I am so pleased that you found me to be a "lovely host" and "very relaxed". My top tip to getting the larger rooms at The Acer?
