Stayed here one night over the Easter Weekend in the executive suite. Great value for money, nice and quiet location. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. Breakfast was lovely too. Only 1 very small negative comment, the weather was unusually warm so it would have been nice to sit outside. There is two small seats and a table... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and loved it. The owner David was very nice and easy to talk to. He cooked us a tasty breakfast every day. Also recommend some good sights to visit. Nice comfy bed & room was immaculate when we came back in from a day out. We would definitely recommend this to everyone.

Well located close to town and places of interest. Had an excellent nights sleep (best pillows aside from own that I've ever laid my head down upon) Breakfast and service from David was excellent. Only negative aspect was the size of the ensuite (tiny)

This was a one night stop on our way back from Oban. The room was spacious, clean and well appointed. Location was good, just right for a quiet nights rest. Breakfast was excellent and set us up for the rest of our journey south.

Having previously stayed at this marvelous guest house back in March 2013, i decided to book in once again while in Dumfries working. A warm welcome was received from David when i arrived, who like my previous stay agreed to make me a breakfast in the morning slightly earlier than he normally does for guests due to my early start...

Traveled and stayed as a Family for the weekend - Family Room had loads of space - Bathroom had a Bath and walk in shower, breakfast was cooked fresh to order with plenty of choice and in David you couldn't ask for a more amiable host. If you are ever in the Dumfries area and need a place to stay... More

The Glenaldor is a lovely guest house, very clean and grand and the owner was very friendly. We stayed with our seven year old son and my parents. We were able to stroll into the town for a meal but beware some pubs do not allow children and others asked that we leave by 8pm due to the licencing laws.... More

Was very very nice on approach. Tucked away off the main road. Owner was very friendly and explained everything. Room was immaculate. Told the owner my girlfriend and I would be coming back in at stupid o'clock, hoping that was ok. He just said just maje sure you keep the noise down. That was good of him. Although we got... More
