Light and airy rooms, immediately welcoming and accomodating owners. A home from home, in a central but quiet historic town house. Large and well appointed room and excellent customer service provided. Plenty of free parking and relaxing use of mature lush garden, all a step away from station and town centre facilities. Good choices for breakfast and plenty on the... More

I quite often find that places to stay do not live up to the hype on Tripadvisor. This is not the case here. We stayed in an executive room for one night and it was brilliant. Super clean, well appointed, great breakfast, friendly owners, lots of parking, free wifi etc. I don't normally like giving 5 stars because that means... More

Glenaldor House is a gem. Very convenient to the train station, this beautifully decorated and updated house is a treat. Comfortable beds, great shower, and a gorgeous cooked breakfast. There's even haggis if you like it! I cannot say enough good things about the friendliness of the host and the quality of the visit. Don't miss it!

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. Parking shouldn't be tricky - in the 5 years we have been here we have only had one car with trailer attached... More

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.

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
