We booked to visit my family and it was a great stay. Our room was at the front of the building, old furniture in a... More

This was our second time ink Rivendell and it was just as good. Lovely, clean room. Tasty breakfast and good location (around 10 min walk to the station and around 15 min to town centre). Well worth the price.

Booked at last minute for a quick trip to Scotland, used Rivendell as a overnight midway stopover, Bruce couldn't have been more helpful, we were arriving outside normal check in hours, and Bruce made very easy arrangements to ensure we could get to our rooms with minimum of fuss. We were surprised at our rooms, in a good way! Spacious... More
