We booked in for a night while taking part in Christmas celebrations in the big town. Nothing to do with the B & B but can the great and the good of Dumfries and Scottish Government get the traffic sorted out in the White Sands, although the good people of the town are putting on wonderful events, the traffic issues...

We had a lovely stay in October. The room on the first floor was full of character and the breakfast spot on. Highly recommend and we will return in 2015. We were directed to a lovely Italian restaurant which we thoroughly enjoyed (10 minute walk) although slightly more expensive than we had budgeted to spend, but food was of a... More

On arrival we were greeted in a warm friendly manor and when we asked about walking into town we were offered a lift, given an interesting quick tour of Dumfries and introduced to the landlady at the Globe pub who subsequently gave us a tour and showed us the original Rabbie Burns verses etched into the windows by him. Being... More

This was a two day break for my husband's 50th. We were welcomed warmly by a female member of staff who made us feel at home. Our room was spacious and clean. The en-suite was clean and modern. Sensible method of ordering your breakfast and the breakfast itself was cooked well and sourced fresh from local producers. Short walk into... More

We travelled to Rivendell for a 2 night break. The B and B is close to the main route into Dumfries and easy to find. Ample car parking. Welcomed by the owner and found our room to be warm (November) with a four poster bed. The room was large with a 46" tv. Mentioning the bed, every move resulted in... More

The twin room and bathroom were completely new and with the highest standard, though little bit small. The hotel is just outside the center of Dumfries but the city is small so it is still a walking distance. The room has its own entrance so the family feeling of a B&B is missing. Some will probably prefer this. Great value... More

We stayed at Rivendell B&B to break our long journey from Kent towards Edinburgh and we felt fortunate to have stayed here. The staff were friendly from the time we arrived, the room was comfortable and clean and they served a very tasty breakfast. We met the owner Bruce (a car enthusiast just like my husband) and his recommendation on... More

This is a very difficult review to write. I have no idea why I am finding it so hard, when I do hundreds of reviews all over the world but I am a bit stuck on this one. We booked this in connection with business, and it looked lovely and art Deco on the website. As we were held up,... More

We booked in July to attend a convention in October. Reasonable price and in a good location. We had a very nice welcome and the room was bright warm and comfortable. The breakfast was great with a wide choice of dishes available. We would recommend the Rivendell to anyone thinking of visiting Dumfries.
