Very comfortable arts and crafts B+B sympathetically decorated. Everything you need catered for. The breakfast was delicious and extra toast and hot drinks offered too. Dumfries itself had some interesting architecture and by the river was picturesque but was disappointing as it seems somewhat run down. However, staying at the Rivendell albeit for only one night was a treat. The... More

Me & my Partner stayed here during March for a night as we were working close by and I can honestly say it was one of the nicest and friendliest places I have stayed before. As we pulled up to Rivendell it instantly gave you a great feeling. The building and grounds were bright and welcoming. We were greeted by... More

Plenty of parking available to rear of B&b. Staff friendly and helpful. The room was a good size although the en suite door would close without being locked. Booking and payment was very easy. Cooked breakfast was very tasty. A negative for me is more breakfast options should be available. Porridge, cereal or cooked breakfast and that's it. No fresh... More

What a lovely find. We were spending Easter weekend in Dumfries to celebrate my cousins 50th birthday who lives there. Our original accommodation booking for another hotel fell through and I'm so glad it did. This gem of an establishment made you feel so special. Designed by a student of Charles Rennie Mackintosh and the evidence was everywhere. We had... More

It's been a while since I experienced a more personal stay that a B&B provides and after our stay at Rivendell, we won't be waiting so long again. Arrived late in the evening as my Fiance and I had been working on the Friday of our arrival. Given our keys and instructions for ordering our breakfast the next day. We... More

My partner and I stayed here for one night and were thoroughly impressed. The room was clean, modern, and very comfortable. Staff were friendly and welcoming; breakfast cooked to perfection. Would definitely recommend as a base to anyone visiting the Galloway area.
