Cozy & Welcoming Stay - Highly Recommend
Amazing and comfortable home with a wonderfully friendly and helpful staff and delicious breakfast, all conveniently located just a quick bus trip from the city center! I arrived after a few days of melting in terrible accommodations in Birmingham, traveling alone, and the Dorstan staff immediately made me feel welcome—they let me know they’d upgraded my room free of charge, promptly showed me up to it, and identified bus stops and routes, attractions to see, places to eat, and how to get there. I fell in absolute love with Scotland during my stay, and the Dorstan crew had a lot to do with that. I’m already planning a return trip, and this is top of the list for where to stay again! Thanks for an amazing time

Very Good8.0
Great stay.
Phenomenal breakfast and friendly host. Bedroom had en suite bath with shower with lovely hot water. Only complaint was uncomfortable bed with mattress springs palpable. Also bare walls which made room austere.

The Location of this place is great!. For some reason the gentleman was short (rude) with us on several occasions over the 2 days we stayed. The lady was great. The walls are thin so bring earplugs as I was awaken from sleep at 11:15 at night and had trouble falling back to sleep as they talked ( probably quietly for some time) The House is in need of updating but works fine.. but you could not sit on the toilet square(leg room issues) the beds are very bouncy but comfortable. The breakfast is quiet nice.
