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

My husband and I stayed here overnight and were really pleased with our room, which was clean, airy and comfortable. The breakfast was very appetising and well presented Lawrence the owner was very friendly and helpful. The property is very near the railway station and town centre.

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

Good value, very comfortable, quiet area, good food, no problems at all. A nice feature of Dumfries are the beautiful old buildings in red sandstone. Good entertainment in the Hole In The Wall pub in town.

I spent two very pleasant nights at this B&B in a room with en-suite bathroom and toilet. The villa is a short walk from the station and from the centre of the town and river. The owner ,Lawrence, made me most welcome, obligingly advised me regarding recommended places to eat and also booked a taxi for me. Facilities were very... More

Enjoyed my stay, however it was a return to an older style b&b. My room was small as expected, however i didn't get on with the bed or the wardrobe. There was also a communal bathroom, which I believe was shared with all rooms, tho I never found it engaged, however some may find it inconvenient dashing across a multi... More
