5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

Beautiful Hotel and wonderful hosts ... Service second to none.
Would definately stay again!! From the minute we entered to
when we left nothing was too much trouble, and also local knowledge
of restaurants and directions was great!

Stayed for one night recently! Really enjoyed the stay. Beautiful rooms, great service, good food and in a central location. The owners were a mine of helpful information
Service with a smile and a chat!

After much debate with my wife we opted for the Huntingdon House Hotel, rather than the Premier. Triple room with en suite and additional toilet, comfy comfy beds, well appointed with flat screen with dvd. The warm and sincere welcome on entering through the front door just set the scene. If you are looking for somewhere to stay in the Dumfries area, save some time and just book here, you will not be dissapointed. Great value for money, great rooms, good location.

I've stayed here a couple of times and Terry and Lynne have always been great hosts and nothing is too much trouble for them. Very comfortable rooms and great value. Biker friendly too. My friends and I, being creatures of habit, will be back.

This is the third time I have stayed at this hotel. It gets better every time.
The level of service & comfort are second to none.
Rooms are nice, breakfast is superb.
We will definitely be back.

We stayed at this hotel for a few days in the summer. Our room was a great size, with a separate dressing area before the bathroom. The bed was comfortable and the room quiet.

Lynne and Terry are helpful and friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed breakfast and really appreciated being able to come down to the bar for a drink after a meal out in the evening.

The hotel is in a good location to get into town, without being right in the middle of it.
If we came back to Dumfries, we’d definitely consider staying here again.
