Wonderful accommodation…with a genuine touch of something different. We were looking forward to the visit and had booked to stay in room 3 with the four-poster bed. It was a cosy and comfortable bed on one of the hottest evenings of the years so far! It was also interesting to hear it referred to as an example of accessible restoration... More

We stayed at the fabulous Dumfries House Lodge for one night but I wish it had been longer. It was like staying in a 5 star hotel and not a B & B. The manager, Mark, was very efficient and his breakfast from the extensive menu was outstanding. I had my favourite - eggs benedict.) Huge bed, smart tv, beautiful... More

My wife and I are traveling around the UK from Australia . We saw The documentary on Dumfries House and we wanted to see for ourselves.

I have no hesitation in saying our stay here was fantastic. The fact that Dumfries Lodge has 100% five star reviews says it all. We stayed in room 3 with the four poster bed, it was stunning with a massive bathroom with separate bath and a huge double shower. The bed was super comfortable too. Breakfast was fantastic with buffet... More

134 entries here, all grading it excellent, and I can only concur. Many 4-star hotel managers would benefit from staying here and seeing how it should be done. For example the bathroom actually had room to put things down, bathrobes were provided and the toothbrush glasses were actually glass rather than those plastic things which always fall over. Lovely to... More

Staying at the Lodge is a wonderful complement to visiting the House. I agree with the comments of almost all the contributors. I stayed there for 2 nights and would readily stay there again. The whole location blends in beautifully and the furnishing are exceptional. Staff are great and treat each visitor with care and interest. Five star all the... More

We stayed one night at Dumfries House last year after seeing a TV programme about the rescue and restoration of the main house. We loved the lodge so much we went back for a two night stay this year. The surroundings are lovely,with lots of different walks around the grounds all included in the price of the relaxed, comfortable accommodation... More

Dumfries House Lodge is an experience not to be missed, it appears no expense has been spared for what is a very comfortable and reasonable top of the range bed and breakfast it added greatly to our visit to Dumfries House.
