Spacious, spotless room and extremely comfortable bed. Wonderful breakfasts! Anne and John are very friendly helpful hosts with great knowledge of the area. We visited Geilston garden, Glenarn garden and the Hill House. All lovely experiences. The blossom trees in the town were at their best.

A B&B that deserves its 9.8 rating! Anne & John are great hosts and the rooms/facilities are top rate. We stayed 3 nights and were very comfortable! Added to that is Helensburgh, itself which is a lovely Clyde side town, Terrific!

Definitely recommendable! Quiet, comfortable, beautyful, all details are taken care of. The hosts are really kind and are always trying to make your stay the best. They are also a great source of information on Helensburgh and the surrounding areas, and provide a mountain guide service by themselves.
