Five us stayed here as a base for a golfing weekend. We had a twin room and a 3 bed attic room. Both were clean, modern and well appointed with smart en-suite bathrooms. The beds were really comfortable and there was a plentiful supply of accessories inc hot drinks. Full Scottish breakfast was excellent with good choices also available. There... More

Very pleasant overnight stay in Dumfries at the Torbay during early May. Excellent position in a quiet area that is just 10 minutes stroll on the flat into the Town Centre. Easy car parking on site, pleasant clean room and an excellent breakfast in a well laid out dining room. Our hosts were very friendly and welcoming. Hope to be... More

This B&B is brilliant, run by a couple with family they are very welcoming and go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable. The rooms are spotless, nice hot showers and the breakfast is delicious!

I couldn't recommend Torbay Lodge more highly, the room was lovely, service & friendliness were great, I'd have expected to pay much more for such a great stay. Now just trying to find an excuse to come back again! Close to the station & town centre, breakfast was lovely, so many options & all really fresh.

Very comfortable B&B within easy walking distance of the town, about a 3 minute walk to the train station and very convenient to Station Hotel restaurant. Our room was spacious, comfortable, clean and perfectly quiet. Our innkeepers, Derek and Suzy, could not have been more helpful. They cheerfully accommodated our special requests. Breakfast choices are extensive. The full cooked breakfast... More

This is a lovely house quite near the train station although we were driving. Very comfortable bed. Spotless house. The best shower we've ever had in a B&B and an outstanding breakfast. Very, very good value.

I stayed there in a double room for single occupancy for one night. Booked one day before I got a last minute discount. The room was big and well appointed. However the en suite bathroom was very small and hat just a tiny washbasin. But the shower cubicle was large and the shower was the most powerful one I've ever... More
