Stayed here for 2 nights. Very impressed with this B&B, rooms were beautiful, well stocked (a hot chocolate on arrival after a long drive was just the ticket) and wifi had good connection. Loved the feather pillows and duvet, slept as well as at home. Breakfast was variable, but on the whole a very nice place to stay and good... More

Was spending just one night in the town and needed somewhere convenient to stay. Found Rivendell on the internet and booked it and was glad I did. Friendly, helpful and cheerful staff, a small but very comfortable room (I did book a single in fairness, but the bed was huge and comfortable!) with all amenities. The building is impressive inside,... More

This small hotel is a perfect location if you are doing the southern coast of Scotland. It's right off the main road. The staff was great. Breakfast was delicious. Our room was great, with a nice shower and comfortable beds. Good value for the money.

I am working as a student intern at the nearby process plant. This B&B provides high quality, comfortable and affordable accommodation for my situation. The rooms are very nice, the food excellent and the staff very friendly. This allows me to relax fully after my shift as if I were working from home. Free fast wifi is an added bonus.
