We visited our friends in Dumfries and after nine years we stayed for the second time at the Merlin Bed&Breakfast with Beatrice and James Murray. We felt again like coming home. Beatrice and James do everything for their guests. We enjoyed a very good breakfast and stayed in a nice room overlooking the river. Beatrice and James are very friendly... More

Beatrice greeted us at the door with a warm smile and invited us in to view the room. I cannot say enough about how accommodating she and her husband Jim were to us. Our stay was lovely, the room was like a palace and they offered restaurant recommendations to us. They went out of their way to make us feel... More

Beatrice and Jim were very helpful and great hosts . The guesthouse is beautifully situated on the banks of the river with fantastic scenery. Breakfast was great, room very comfortable and spotlessly clean. We would definitely return .😄

Returned this year earlier than usual , and as always a marvelous 10 days with lovely hosts, Beatrice and Jim. If you want to simply chill out and relax, but be ideally situated for trips to the surrounding area, I cant think of a better location in Dumfries. The view from the rooms overlooking the river Nith are lovely.Everything about... More

I stayed here on 20.06.14 for one night. The Merlin is very conveniently located & easy to find. My room was immaculate, the bathroom/shower facilities were beautifully maintained. I took a shower in the late evening and broke a small vase by accident. I reported this to the lady, and she was so sweet, and wouldn't let me pay for... More

Every attention was given to ensure my stay was the best that could be provided. Lots of little touches to show that I mattered - fresh flowers, individual carton of fresh milk, yummy cupcakes and chocolates, fluffy towels and everything spotlessly clean. The only thing that detracted from my comfort was a personal preference for a soft mattress - and... More

After a days cycling from CarlisleThe Merlin was a welcome sight. It is excellently located right by the Sustrans cycle route 7. Beatrice and Jim were very welcoming and made sure our bikes were kept safe overnight too. The room was lovely with a view of the river although it wasn't ensuite. We were looked after impeccably and had a... More
