After cycling 112 miles and turning up late my friend and I were taken in when we most needed it. Bicycles were not an issue, we were provided with menus for local takeaways and even provided with warm plates for our feast. The rooms were well priced, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and staff were incredibly helpful and friendly.

Fantastic stay, Emma & Robertson couldn't do enough to ensure stay was perfect. The room was lovely extra little touches like tissues, shower gel, biscuits and chocolates. Took time to show us to the room, advise us on local pubs and restaurants. Well done to you both and many thanks

We had a lovely stay. Check-in was a breeze. Our room was quiet and spacious and the bathroom was very clean. It was a nice touch having proper toiletries available for our use as well as a city map and book of Robert Burns' poetry. As we were only there for a night the close proximity to the city center...

I was "decanted" to Ferintosh from the Holiday Inn because I had my dog with me when I visited Dumfries for a "Cash for Kids" event. The room was clean and comfortable and I slept well for both nights of my stay – and so did Henry the dog! Although the guest house is just across the road from the... More

We stayed at the Ferintosh for 3 nights in the family room as we had our 17 year old daughter with us. We had separate bed rooms and a shared bathroom between the 3 of us which was brilliant.

My husband and I stayed at Ferintosh for 4 nights and couldn't be happier that we chose to stay with Robertson and Emma. Our room was great, very comfortable and clean with an extra welcome of sample of whiskey. The location was great for us, right across from the train station which also houses a car rental.
