We hadn't booked anywhere in advance and just drove past this place as we entered Dumfries. We drove around Dumfries to look at options for accommodation but found ourselves coming back to the very first place we saw. Only 5 mins walk into town
Looked at 2 options for rooms, one was 65 and the other was 75 GBP / Night / 2 people. We took the 75 room which was very nice, clean and very spacious, it even had 2 bathrooms. The breakfast was very well done and organised.
The lady of the hotel was probably the most helpful hotelier I have come across (except maybe 1 guy in Cambodia). She was very polite, friendly and spent time to advise us on which places would be best for us to visit in the short time we had here.
Often you find that these old houses that are converted into hotels just don't work very well, usually because of a lack of planning and low budget. This is not the case with this hotel, it has been converted well and the decor is well fitting.
Would definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting Dumfries based on location, cost, cleanliness, comfort and friendliness.
