We have just returned from a 3 night stay in the Rivendell & cannot praise it enough. My wife fell in love with the house & the staff were friendly, efficient & welcoming. We will definitely stay there again when we are back in Dumfries.

We were a group of 12 skaters staying here for two days and taking part in the Dumfries Synchronised Ice Skating comp. Bruce, the owner, bent over backwards to accommodate us even when one of our team forgot two of our group which meant he had to rethink our sleeping arrangements, nothing fazed him. We also had to be at... More

Enjoyable stay in room 6. Wonderful shower. Tea, coffee, hot chocolate and lovely biscuits replaced each day. Someone earlier commented there should be tissues in the room - well there are now! The staff were friendly and breakfast was great. The only very slight problem for me was the pillow was too firm - but I am picky, my partner... More

We arrived here at around 7pm. The owner had left a key out for us and we let ourselves in and wrote down our breakfast orders for the next morning. The building itself is beautiful and our rooms were clean and fresh. The only issue was that at around 7am a continuous noise began which sounded like it was coming... More

Quality of accommodation is good. Modern well decorated and equiped room. However avoid room nine as backs on to kitchen cupboards and shelves. The rattling and noise begins at 0550 just behind your head. Staff say there is a plan to sound proof but need to get on with it!

The Rivendell is located within easy distance of the Town Centre and its facilities which was an excellent place to have a stroll after my business meeting. The hotel itself is located in large grounds which are well maintained and litter free. It is an impressive and picturesque building also in good order and well maintained. It comprises both in-house... More
