Wonderful B&B. Friendly owners providing a superb breakfast. Good recommendation for an evening meal in Dumfries and detailed directions for onward journey (the scenic route). An excellent start to the holiday.

Terry was friendly and full of helpful suggestions on how to make the most of our trip. Breakfast was ready and waiting for us each morning. The beds could have been more comfortable, but the attention to detail and hospitality made this a good value.

This hotel looks as if it is over one hundred years old but is kept immaculately clean by the proprietors Terry and Lynne who provide a warm welcome and make you feel right at home. The town of Dumfries is a bit tired and run down and the Huntingdon House is up there with the best to offer. The lounge... More

Top spot for all outdoor activities, super friendly, Terry and Lynn certainly make you welcome with a smile, joke, and super sense of humour, no request is too much. On top of that the food, breakfast, also eat in (Indian or Chinese) at their well stocked bar is fab! Rooms are great, value for money right in Dumfries, if you... More

If your a motor biker then definitely stay here, they have an area for bikes that is secure. Terry and Lynn are bikers themselves so we were made to feel very welcome, the hotel and rooms are lovely, there's a bar which is always a bonus and his knowledge of the local and surrounding area was very useful, the breakfast...

My cousin and I arrived from US very tired early afternoon. They were very accommodIng. Lucky the room was close to ready but even if not they would have stored our luggage until later. Offered helpful driving and walking advice. Off-street parking is awesome and spacious. Dumfries area is beautiful.

Stay here fair regularly when I'm up in Dumfries. Feels like a home away from home. The owners are extremely nice and down-to-earth, they'd do anything for you. Not being able to get dinner here is a slight disadvantage to the places I'd usually stay, but they'll certainly point you in the right direction.

My wife and I stopped for a couple of nights as we took part in Tough Mudder. The welcome from Lynn and Terry was very friendly which set the tone for the whole weekend. Great place to stay. Room was great, well equipped and had a nice comfy bed. Breakfasts were excellent. We will be back next year!.
