Stayed in this house overnight August 2014. Grand location and so handy for the town and train station. The room we had did have a great outlook, which makes a massive difference. 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

David very friendly and helpful. We found the executive double room spacious and tastefully decorated. 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. My apologies if my directions to the pub were not up to scratch and although we do have a street map of Dumfries in the information pack it sounds like a good idea to do a couple... More

Don't normally take the time to do reviews but thought I must take a minute just to say what a perfect B and B this is. From the great and friendly welcome to the fantastic room with the massive bathroom through to the best quality breakfast I have had , the effort David and his team put in is second... More

We stayed here on the way back from a Hebrides holiday. Our welcome was friendly. Parking was limited but manageable. Our room was a little basic and on the small size but functional. The ensuite was actually separate to the room but behind a second door which could be locked from the inside only. We had a reasonably comfortable sleep.... More

Not a problem that you found us to be only alright - although we try our hardest and the large majority of our guests rate us as excellent - the... More

Oh dear, I'm afraid I can't agree with some of the previous comments. We stayed here for one night on our way back from the Western Isles and I found it very disappointing. Our room was very reminiscent of student accommodation with just two single beds, a desk and chair, a wardrobe and a set of drawers. I did peep... More

Well to say I am flabbergasted would be the understatement of the year!, however let me try and be constructive and deal with the points in your review. 1) Would it not be fair to say that you also had a flat screen TV, tea and coffee making facilities with biscuits, a comprehensive information pack and a full range of...

We stayed in room 1 and it was lovely, clean and cosy and felt like a home from home, not like the generic hotel room you get from branded hotels. David was very welcoming and even made us breakfast earlier than usual due to us needing to leave early the following morning. Would definitely recommend and would stay again.

This was our second visit Glenaldor House and once again our experience was excellent. Lovely big room . Comfortable bed, excellent customer service, David is a brilliant host. Nothing is too much trouble and the breakfast is fabulous. We will be back next year.

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
