Sits on a quiet street mere blocks from main part of town, as well as close to the rail station. Very nice, spacious corner room with ensuite on the 1st floor, with comfortable beds and room for suitcases and such. Breakfast was made to order and delicious, with plenty of tea, milk, juice and/or coffee available. Lovely hosts, Larry and... More

Shirley was the most welcoming of hosts. The villa is in a great location, easy walk from the station and easy walk into town by a couple of different routes. Room was spotless, shared bathroom was spotless and there was never a sharing issue as there was also an extra loo to share. Breakfast was lovely and Lawrence made sure... More

Shirley made me feel very welcome during my stay and could not have been more helpful. En-suite room was excellent size, bathroom was lovely. Ideal location for town centre, hospital and Uni. Excellent parking facilities. Would definitely stay again and would recommend.

We stayed one night at Glencarin Villa and over all found it a very nice stay. The room was big enough for two, clean and cosy. There is limited space to park outside the B&B but we were lucky in that we got parked up for the night. It is in a good location close to town and in walking... More

good location in the centre of Dumfries, but that's it, the décor hasn't changed since the 1970's I had a single room and shared bathroom and I wouldn't have booked if I had known this. but to be fair it was only £25 a night, so you get what you pay for I suppose

I stayed at Glencairn Villa for a whole week during May 2012 and was made very welcome by Shirley and Lawrence. I arrived by train so there were no parking problems, and Glencairn is a very short distance from the railway station. The breakfasts were great and I appreciated being given a choice. My room was comfortable and I enjoyed... More
