This was our 5th consecutive annual visit and will not be the last. As always, Terry and Lynne were the most pleasant and friendly hosts you could hope to meet and nothing is too much trouble. The hotel is a lovely building and huge car park close to the railway station and town centre. Rooms are comfortable and equipped with... More

the b&b is a large imposing house with plenty of parking space, it is on 1 of the main roads into Dumfries (and only 2 minutes from the railway station), our room (1) was a twin and the beds were very narrow (but not uncomfortable), the bathroom was ok with some nice touches (fluffy bathrobes and ladies & gents deodorants...

Stayed here for 4 nights short break and loved every minute. Hotel was in perfect position for town centre, restaurants and bars, all of which are a short walk away. Immaculate throughout, spotlessly clean, and maintained to a high standard. Free parking which is a bonus anywhere these days. Very hospitable owners, nothing too much trouble and very knowledgeable of... More

Stayed one night here with my team for a skating competition in Dumfries. Owners were helpful and friendly, without being overly intrusive. Accommodation was immaculate, carpets and bed linen were spotless, ensuite shower looked new, with plenty of hot water and even a fresh bathrobe hanging up. Bed was very comfortable, room wasn't huge but more than adequate for short... More

I have never felt so welcome or accommodated as I did here in the Huntingdon house hotel. I booked late in the day due to my business, and was advised on where to eat and drink, but I went for a takeaway which was recommended which helps when you are in a new area. Totally recommend this hotel. The owners... More

Yet another night in Dumfries, and once again Huntingdon House comes up trumps. Friendly welcome, comfortable room, and a very sociable host behind the bar. If you get the opportunity you must try one of Terry's signature cocktails ! Always well looked after here, and Terry and Lynne go the extra mile to make sure you are well looked after.

Very warm welcome, friendly and helpful owners, great breakfast, warm room, convenient location – and a very entertaining evening in the bar with owner and friends. We wanted a late check-out and that was no problem either. We had a great time. Huntingdon House will be our first choice whenever we're in the area. Fully recommended.

If dedication to customer service ever deserved praise, it's at this delightful hotel. The owners Terry and Lynne have put their heart and soul into this place and couldn't do enough to make sure the overnight I had here was perfect. The hotel is spotless, bright and well maintained. I enjoyed a lovely drink or 3 in the bar, the... More
