Glenaldor House is a handsome, characterful property near the centre of town, I was made to feel very welcome when I arrived and stayed in a good room with a large/ stylish en-suite bathroom. The room/ house were very clean, breakfast was good and I would have no hesitation in recommending Glenaldor to family/ friends. Only minor issue is parking... More

Charming period property, almost in the centre of Dumfries. We received a lovely welcome from the owner and were shown to a large high ceiling room with a nice bathroom - all of it spotless and clean. We had a quiet nights sleep and in the morning there was a great breakfast, wide choice - all high quality, cooked and... More

From the time we arrived, this was a great stay. David is a delightful host, the rooms are warm and comfortable, although the bathroom in ours was quite small, and the breakfasts were great. It was a good base for exploring the district, and we appreciated the off-street parking. We will happily return.

A lovely building with beautiful rooms. Everything was top quality and comfortable. The host was cheerful and helpful and breakfast was delicious. The only slight problem was that 'Emily' our sat nav got a little confused trying to find it!

Clean, functional B&B. Friendly accommodating staff. Decent breakfast. Parking could be tricky, especially with trailer &/or late night arrivals as it is off the main road and parking could be limited.

Thanks for the review and we are pleased you found us functional, friendly and accommodating and that you had a decent breakfast - these are all the areas we try and ensure we excel in for our guests.

Excellent overnight stay at Glenaldor House, with two friends. What a beautiful house, with very clean and supremely comfortable bedrooms, spacious bathrooms, delicious breakfasts and a very warm welcome from David, the host. Ideally situated for the train station and the town, Glenaldor is a lovely place to stay. Would love to spend more time in this part of the... More

This b&b is located within walking distance of the train station in Dumfries. It is part of a row of houses which is accessed by a single gravel lane. The hotel has two parking spots which we were fortunate that the owner allowed us to use otherwise you will have to find parking on the street below (we were unable... More

Just back from another great stay at Glenaldor House. After spending the afternoon at the fantastic gardens at Portrack House (only open for 1 day a year from 12-5pm MayDay Bank Holiday Monday), where it was rather muddy and drizzled for an hour or so, it was so good to arrive to the warm welcome. This is my second stay... More

Beautfully presented, spotlessly clean, friendly but never intrusive owner, hearty breakfast, comfy bed (and pillows), brilliant location..... What else do you need! Would definitely recommend and use again. Thanks. Simon and Karen Browne

Initially thought about booking a hotel but glad I didn't. Glenaldor House provided everything we needed, from a friendly welcome to immaculate rooms and well-cooked hearty breakfast every morning. Can't rate it highly enough. Don't hesitate to book.
