Robertson & Emma made us very welcome. Beautiful place, well located for town. Very nice room. Excellent breakfast, freshly cooked to order. Located opposite the train station but permits for parking available.

Stayed 2nts over Easter. Emma very informative and helpful. Convenient location for town centre. Good, tasty breakfast and spotlessly clean. Room a bit on small side but had everything we needed. DOG FRIENDLY too. So even your pooch can stay which is a big thumbs up from us!

Wonderful cooked breakfast - perfect porridge, delicious bacon, eggs and potato scones. Lots of herbal teas. Excellent choice. Very warm and welcoming hosts. Rooms were warm. Beds were OK. Decor a little dated. Central location. Good advice on places to eat. A really nice vibe. Fantastic value for money.

My wife and I stopped for three days in Dumfries at Ferintosh House. Close to the train station, comfortable rooms, friendly dogs, drams of whiskey each night and great conversation. Robinson and Emma were generous hosts and we had entertaining exchanges during breakfast covering topics from health care to Scottish independence. I would go back in a heart beat.
