This is a mid-range B&B, the room had that cobbled together feeling with an old carpet, institutional bathroom,basic furniture, creaky staircases and not much style...the WiFi worked fine and the breakfast was OK, though limited if you are not into full English. The proprietors are welcoming and helpful. However, I felt that 70 pounds for one night was a bit... More

I booked this hotel for the ice hockey playoffs at the nearby ice rink and only chose this hotel because it was the cheapest that was available at the time, but don't let the cheap prices fool you as this is one of the best values for money that you can get. Although a little tricky to locate due to... More

We arrived to a very warm welcome from the owner. The room we were shown to was on the first floor and had everything we needed.....the bedside lamps were already on which gave a great ambience especially as we had had a difficult journey and felt tired, cold and hungry. Suzy was most helpful and offered for us to ring... More

Booked very last minute for the Alex Salmond Burns Supper in Dumfries. Told the owner we'd be late back but we were very late (1pm) so he stayed up to let us in. Excellent service. Lovely welcoming room, good price. Never been so glad to see our beds! Please stay here for a very pleasant trip to Dumfries!

One night stop off. Ten minute walk from town. Lovely big room with ensuite. Friendly and helpful owners (thanks for the selotape!) and a great breakfast. I was generally wary of B&Bs as opposed to hotels when working away but this place has changed my mind. If it had a restaurant and a bar it would be on par with... More

We had a lovely 3night stay here - room was warm & cosy despite the varied weather!! The bed was one of the most comfy we've found in a B&B. Great central location in Dumfries meaning you could leave the car & walk. Dumfries is also a great base to travel to many places along the coast, or inland to... More

I've never been to Dumfries before so I was lucky enough to drop in on this place by chance when looking for somewhere to stay overnight. Large room, comfortable bed, smart bathroom, very clean and a great breakfast breakfast to set you up for the next day with vegetarian optiion. Very freindly and welcoming. What more could you want.
