Dorstan Guest House
A charming B&B offering good value for money.
A very charming B&B, in a good location, minutes away from the center by bus. The proprietor was friendly and helpful. The room was simple but well maintained. Serviced daily. Breakfast was good with a variety of options. Overall, excellent value for money. Only minus was unreliable WiFi on upper floors.

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
