We have just stayed for 4 nights and were made very welcome and well fed. Owners were away to start with on a well earned holiday but Lucy cared for us very well indeed. The property is very clean, central for the town, trains and buses close and quiet as the road is oneway so does not get much traffic.... More

Carol and Steve were just wonderful hosts and offered us a very warm welcome into their beautiful home. The room was huge and very comfortable. Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts. We had some great chats with Carol and Steve was the perfect gentleman doing all the lifting of our luggage which as I was travelling with my... More

We came to the house very late in the evening, I think it was already 10 p.m., no reservation and the landlady already went to bed. Her husband helped us with a room, which was en-suite for three adults, very spacious and very clean and just for 70 GBP. We wanted to visit a pub and Mr. Steve gave us... More

I stayed at the Lindean for 5 days (was in Dumfries on business) and I was blown away by the place. I stayed in both a single en suite and then a double en suite and the rooms were immaculate, they were tastefully decorated, the beds were PHENOMENAL I honestly haven't slept so well for months! The facilities were amazing... More

I feel bad to give this B&B an average review as the hosts are really friendly. However my stay there was cold and I did not really enjoy the breakfasts. The heater in my room was broken and no replacement was put in the room. I slept by doubling up my duvet (which was very thin) and packing pillows around... More

Dont hesitate to stay here. Very high standard of room, cleanliness and Carol and Steve are excellent owners and very welcoming. Breakfast was perfection. If Im back in Dumfries this is where I will stay. A++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++. Davie from Edinburgh.

A clean and well kept B & B with a most hospitable Hostess. My only complaint here was that the mattress on the double bed was in dire need of being changed, it was most uncomfortable to sleep on, this was pointed out to Carol in the morning ..... it must be difficult to know when beds need to be...

We were very impressed by the kindness of Carol and Steve who run this B & B. Nothing was too much trouble. Bedrooms were clean and comfortable, food was good and well cooked. Advice re 'where to go' was great. Have got nothing but good to say about this B & B. We will be back I'm sure.

We arrived quite late afternoon on a pouring wet day and had only just decided to stay in Dumfries for the night. Right from the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome. The rooms were spotless and comfortable. Breakfast the next morning was brilliant - I know it always tastes better when someone else makes it but it... More

I had the misfortune to come down with a horrible lurgy a couple of days after arriving to work in Dumfries. Carol and Steve went to great lengths to try and make sure i was as comfortable as possible and warm enough throughout my 3 days of illness. They even made me some sandwiches for my trip back down the... More
