The Rivendell is located within easy distance of the Town Centre and its facilities which was an excellent place to have a stroll after my business meeting. The hotel itself is located in large grounds which are well maintained and litter free. It is an impressive and picturesque building also in good order and well maintained. It comprises both in-house... More

Rivendell is a lovely building with lovely rooms and is decorated beaurifully. The DIY check in was fine with us, as we were just heading straight out. Room was spotlessly clean. The shower lacked power, which let it down. The breakfast in the morning was ok, could've done with a bit of black pudding and either a hash brown or... More

We stayed 2 nights in Rivendell B & B, it was a wonderful little place, the breakfast was great especially the sausages , the room was clean, tidy and warm. Was a nice home away from home for a night. We would stay there again.

We went to stay at Rivendell B & B for one night only as we were going star gazing in the Dark Park at Galloway Forest. We arrived to a very warm welcome by the owner who was fun and very friendly. Our room was lovely - cosy, clean, warm and inviting, and as a Scandinavian, I totally appreciated the... More

Clean, spacious large room , good facilities, just not very personable. Owners not there to meet and greet you, which wasn't too much of an issue, do it yourself check in. This morning at breakfast not sure if we were being served breakfast by the owners or staff. Not personable or engaging.

We stayed here for a work night out recently. It was very good. Everyone very helpful, comfortable en suite room and very tasty breakfast. The house itself is lovely - arts and crafts style with lots of original features. Definitely recommended.

We arrived to a pleasant welcome from the owner. The building and decor is lovely, if you like Arts and Crafts style. The room was a good size and although overlooking the busy road, was not noisy. The bed was comfortable and my prior request for non-feather pillows was acceded to. My only criticism, one which I find in every... More

Rivendell is well run & provides a convenient & comfortable centre from which to explore Dumfries and its surrounding beautiful countryside. The breakfast, whilst basic, is well cooked & provides a good start to the day. Our room was well-provisioned and reasonably comfortable. The house itself has been designed & built in the style of Rennie Mackintosh, with a range... More

We booked 2 rooms from booking.com for 2 nights, it only cost £188 altogether, this was very cheap compared to other hotels and B&B's and very much worth the money, room 4 was spacious with a walk-in wardrobe, some may say that the decor was old fashioned but I think it fits in with the Scottish theme, the only problem...
