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.

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.

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

I'm from Dumfries but haven't lived their for 10 years. Throughout my life I passed Rivendell and always remarked on the aesthetics of the property, what a beautiful place especially when lit up at night. 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
