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. The owners Robertson & Emma were very friendly and did everything to please you. The rooms were very clean and comfortable... More

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. It made it... More

Although this is only based on a one night stay, I think this is really a gem in Dumfries. Looking for a guest house while we visited my son who lives in Dumfries, we found this on the net and did a Trip Advisor search which was very positive. We can concur with all the poaitive comments made..Comfortable room with... More

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!
