On arrival I saw a well maintained and attractive building. The grounds were clean and tidy and well presented. Upon entry I was somewhat taken aback by the quality of the interior, very Scottish indeed! The room was clean and of a high standard. The owner was extremely helpful and could not do enough for me. I would highly recommend... More

We had a one night stay here on one our way back from touring the highlands, the booking was made on the strength of web reviews and the pleasant impression of the building and grounds in photographs. Lesson now learnt " never judge a book by the cover" The grand exterior hides a dark dreary and depressing interior, on arrival... More

DO NOT STAY HERE. This is not a 4 star establishment. I think the Scottish tourist board, Trip Advisor and the AA need to take another look at this place, if they are willing have their name attached to it then it renders their grading system meaningless and misrepresentative. Here’s why: The walls are stained. There was a hole in... More

This is the best b&b I have stayed in. Wonderful house, beautifully restored. My room had everything I could ask for, free wifi and even a four poster bed! I arrived late, which was no problem. Breakfast was excellent.would highly recommend.

It's a beautiful house with beautiful grounds. We were lucky enough to have a superior double room with a four poster bed, very comfortable. The staff we encountered were all lovely and very helpful. Breakfast was good. It was however a good walk into the centre of Dumfries which was fine during the day but not so good for an... More

Only stayed the one night with working in the area, but if ever I'm back in Dumfries then ill book up here without hesitation. Lovely clean room, comfy bed, and a great breakfast (ordered the night before). The owner was very informative and nothing seemed too much of a problem for him.

Looks great from the outside and once through the front door you are transported to a \Charles Renee MacIntosh interior. THE place is full of character, the rooms are in keeping with the period and vary in size. If you want a four poster bedroom ask for 1 or 6. We found the staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is... More

This was a fantastic property. The bed room was a good size and the bed was comfortable. The room was a little dark but this was in keeping with the history of the property. The breakfast was very nice. We only stayed one night but we wished it had been more.

Booked a double room last minute and we were very happy. We stayed in room 3 and it was very spacious. The room overlooked the back garden so was nice and quiet. We ate at Little Italy (lovely restaurant) which is 2 minutes from Rivendell. Would take about 10-15 minutes to walk into the centre of Dumfries. Breakfast was good,... More
