Great friendly place to stay. I stayed with my skating team. Lovely rooms, immaculately clean. Even got a lift into town when we missed our taxi booking. Nicely decorated, in keeping with the period of the building but updated and well-kept. Beds re-made and bathroom re-cleaned after one night of a two night stay. I would highly recommend this place... More

Thank you for your very positive review. The lift mentioned was courtesey of Nerea, our Spanish student and her big LandRover. I don't think I would have fitted the whole team into my car. We look forward to seeing you again and hopefully you will qualify for next yyear's competition. Bruce Harper, Proprietor. More

I spend alot of time travelling so it is important to find places that are good to stay . Also I often have colleagues with me and some are vegetarian . The rooms are lovely , the breakfast excellent , the service is both friendly and helpful . This all coupled with reasonable prices .

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.

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.
