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.

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

We got that and more at the Merlin. Couldnt fault it. Welcoming, elegant, clean, comfortable, (little lemon cakes and chocs on the tea... More

I recently visited Dumfries with my daughter and we booked into The Merlin at the last minute. We were given a beautiful room overlooking the river. We received a very warm welcome and were made to feel at home at all times. Our hosts were magnificent and extremely helpful. The freshly cooked breakfasts were delicious and they even catered for...
