As I told Derek and Rena, returning to Hamilton House (where I stayed a year ago) felt like coming home. Their warm welcome, making you feel like the most important guest on earth, is impossible to beat. I truly enjoy this couple. The rooms (both visits) were large, sunny, clean, and comfortable. The beds are heavenly; the breakfasts divine. Private...

We arrived at the B&B a bit late. The owners were very friendly, the rooms held a good standard, and the breakfast was delicious. Overall it had everything you need to have a good experience at a B&B.

I would definitely stay here again if I make it back to Dumfries. Rooms were very clean, well kept, and quite spacious. Owners are lovely, nice people and serve some great breakfast. House is in a really good location within walking distance to a couple of restaurants. Excellent price for what you've got at this place.

I stayed just one night while away working. Hamilton house was easy to find with a well lit, dedicated convenient car park just behind the building. The room was stylish, warm, well appointed, just what we have come to expect. I was met with a warm welcome and my breakfast order and time taken. I was able to stay on...

Everything fresh, warm and clean led to a good nights sleep, and...

I've stayed in 3 £50 a night B&B's recently, varying from the dismal in Argyllshire, to okay in Oban to this really top-notch place in Dumfries. Anyone setting up a B&B should visit Hamilton house to see how it can be done. Lovely large bedroom, everything laid out well, and once again a top-notch breakfast. Got all those little things...

We were visiting family in Dumfries and were welcomed by the ever accommodating Derek and the hostess-with-the-mostess Rena. Derek was a wealth of information, and Rena always had time for an interesting chat while serving the absolutely filling and delicious breakfast. The rooms were cavernous, bright and spotless, and the bathrooms were immaculate with top quality towels. It was within...

We stayed just the one night on our way to the Highlands, and sound Hamilton house to be perfect for a short stay. The accommodation is first rate, very clean and with an excellent breakfast. The room we stayed in was spacious, and the bed was very comfortable. All in all, our stay was very good.
