Stayed at the Merlin for about 6 weeks while working in Dumfries and I couldn't have picked a better B&B. The owners always gave me a warm welcome and were very accommodating if my plans changed due to work. The landlady even supplied me with a few cups of coffee and biscuits if I was working at the B&B :-)... More

We had a lovely overnight stay in the Merlin - great setting on the River Nith. Beatrice was very accommodating and made us very welcome. The room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was excellent and the table setting was so tasteful! Very friendly and hospitable people. Thank you.

Great people, very friendly. Very nice breakfast. Had a beer with the owners after they won first price new entry of all the B&B's in Dumfries, which is weird because they run the B&B for over 30 years. Good advice where to eat and drink. Nice view over the river, nice front garden.

The owners couldn't have been more friendly and welcoming, Great central location meant access to town centre restaurants was very easy, but the downside of a Saturday night was a little too much nighttime noise - we're used to sleeping with the window open - if we'd shut it, as we should have...
