Reviewed September 14, 2012

Heatily agree with all the favourable comments in the reviews. Yes, every comfort and facility one could wish for, all of a high standard, at a reasonable price and conveniently situated for the town centre, David was so helpful, friendly and altogether a nice person to meet. The room and bathroom were more spacious than in most 4* hotels. We stayed 3 nights and would be more than happy to return.

What's not to like? It's clean, comfortable, close to the town, warm, welcoming and in a very, very quiet spot. The veggie breakfast will keep you going till tea time, and the owner is very friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend it.. if only the weather could have been as accommodating.

Our stay was very comfortable. The room and bathroom were spacious and clean, with heating easy to adjust. Pleasant Victorian Terrace (including JM Barrie associations) in a handy location with easy parking. Breakfast was served promptly and exactly to order. Our host, David was very helpful yet unobtrusive.

Only a few minor points. It was difficult to dry towels and bath mat, perhaps owing to limited rail space. Also, a bit more drawer space would have been good. That and a larger table top, eg for writing, especially for those staying longer than a couple of nights. However, overall the accommodation was excellent.

Thankyou for the positive review and we are pleased that you had an excellent stay with us. Thanks also for the feedback on the room, we have been looking for a slightly bigger table for the room for some time and we will also look at putting a double towel rail on the radiator to increase room for the towels - much appreciated and thanks again.

We had a lovely one night stay at Glenaldor House. David was very welcoming and showed us to our beautiful family room that was extremely spacious with a lovely ensuite. David was very helpful and was always available for any requests. The location, room, cleanliness were all exceptional and we couldn't fault any of it. The breakfast was excellent also with plenty of options. The location is ideal and within walking distance (5-10mins) of two of the top three restaurants in Dumfries on trip advisor, brunos and casa Mia. Glenaldor very easy to find and parking right outside. Thank you for a lovely night in Dumfries.

We picked the Glenaldor at random for a three night stay in Dumfries,what a great piece of luck that was.Easy to find and a short walk to town,parking right outside the front door, the location could not have been better.Owner and host David Showed us our room,very nicely decorated and spotlessly clean,also with a huge en suite.The house has been very tastefully decorated throughout with many original features retained,David also cooked one of the best breakfasts we,ve ever had.Overall, one of best b&b,s we,ve stayed in,great value for money ,great breakfast,and a very professional,efficient owner.Highly recommended.

We booked this at the last minute and got their family room which contained a double and single bed. This was very helpful as we are so used to sleeping in a 6-foot bed that we used them both! The bedroom was large and well decorated in an elegant and well-maintained Victorian house within a reasonable walking distance of the centre of Dumfries. The room was very quiet and restful with the usual ameneties. David the Proprietor was very friendly and helpful and cooked us a lovely breakfast. Very good value for money and we would stay again.

Glenaldor is fairly convenienent for a stroll into town and certainly easy enough to find on the map. The rooms are stylishly decorated and the furnishings compliment a wonderful building.
The bed was very comfortable, the place was very quiet and the cooked breakfast was great!
Mine host was welcoming but thereafter left us to ourselves which was just what we wanted.

Room Tip: Try to get a front facing room, for the better view.
