I elected to stay at Rivendell while on a business trip to Dumfries recently. I received a friendly welcome and was offered good advice about eating out locally in the evening. My room was comfortable with a cosy bed and tea and coffee majking facilities laid on. A reasonable sized flat screen tv was also provided. Rivendell is a 5... More

I booked direct by phone the day before my arrival and obtained a single room at a reduced rate of £45 for B&B which was also available online. The house is located about a 5 minute drive or 20 minute walk from the town centre on one of the main routes through the town. The attractive building sits back from... More

Booked via LateRooms and although they messed up a little, the B&B owner was very helpful in sorting the situation. Good communications from the B&B enabled a late arrival (after 9pm) to be arranged with ease. Our room was small but well appointed and very comfortable which made for an excellent night's sleep. The en-suite shower room had an extremely... More

The breakfast tasted amazing and the staff were very friendly and helpful at all times. We could not think of one negative thing to say about this place. Also,... More

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
