From the freshly ironed linens to the delicious breakfast this is a first rate b&b. This was our first trip to southern Scotland and we loved the heather strewn hillsides and most friendly people. Our host, Dave, was most welcoming and made our stay a lovely one. Dumfries is larger than I expected, a quaint town and the center is... More

I stayed here for two nights with my wife and we were delighted with the room which was spacious and spotless. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom had both bath and a shower. The B&B is fairly close to a busy road, but we weren't disturbed at all. Breakfast was very good quality and passed my "sausage test"... More

We felt immediately at home thanks to the warm welcome by the owner, and things went even better when we saw the room, bright, huge, spotless clean, and so beautiful... The breakfast, with first-quality ingredients was just the brooch that made this house a really recommended experience. We regret not having the opportunity to stay longer there.

We stayed here August 2014. Beautiful guest house situated in a lovely quiet, leafy part of town but just a few minutes walk from the train station and a few minutes more for the town centre, very handy location. The house is beautiful, with many original features and a lovely garden. David was very friendly and welcoming and was the... More

The room itself was good , 2 single beds , comfortable and clean and a good size, not at all cramped , its own ensuite which was spotless... More

The ensuite was superb, being nearly as big as the bedroom and including a bath as well as a shower.We found both rooms very clean and welcoming.The bed was really comfy and I didn't hear a thing until my alarm went off. The stay was... More

This isn't especially fancy but it's safe, quiet and clean, and a good deal at GBP65/night for a couple. Our room was adequate, with a good bed, nice shower and a chair. We were asked to place our breakfast order by 9 pm the night before, which we did. The next morning, we came downstairs to the tiny dining room... More

Thanks for taking the time to review us and we are pleased you enjoyed your stay and found us good value for money.
