Rivendell B&B

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 19, 2013

We stopped off here on our way to the Scottish Highlands, and it was well worth the diversion from the M74.

The welcome from the host (I forgot his name - sorry!) was warm and helpful. (Hint: If you're going to use the restaurant recommended - and it IS good! - take the car as it's a fair old hike!)

The room was beautiful with a four poster bed. There was some traffic noise (we had the window wide open because it was a warm night), but nothing too invasive. Similarly, the building work next door started quite early, but that wasn't the fault of the hotel at all (and should be finished soon).

The inclusive breakfast was excellent!

Overall, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place to others.

Room Tip: A room at the back would reduce traffic noise

Our room was spotlessly clean (the shower was close to sparkling it was so clean), the bed was really comfy, the staff were helpful and friendly and the breakfast was perfect. I would definitely recommend!

Three day golf break. We stayed at Rivendell on Edinburgh road. Booked from internet search and can only say I have no hesitation in awarding a maximum score. Friendly staff and excellent room. Breakfast cooked at a time you prebook. Also ought to recommend the nearby italian called Little Italy which is no more than 10 minutes away. The dumfries and county club is around the corner and friendly and helpful staff here as well. Well done Scotland1 I will certainly be back.

Could not fault this lovely place, absolutely spotless. We were in one of the new rooms which are fiinished to an excellent high standard. Didn't make it to breakfast in the morning so can't comment on that. Staff were very polite and courteous and very helpful. Highly recommended.

Spent 3 nights here this week. My parents room was inside the house and mine was round the back with its own access therefore I was able to come and go without disturbing anyone which suited me fine. Service was great, everyone friendly and willing to help. Lovely place to stay. Highly recommend it.

Distinctive style to this building, a bit different from the norm. Room was small but clean and sufficient for our needs on a one-night stay. Ample car park. Staff very welcoming and helpful.
Not easy to find via satnav so take a map/directions.
Hot breakfast arrived quickly and was satisfying.
Short walk into town where we ate at Primo Piano - hidden away but so glad we came across it.

Stayed 1 night in a single room B&B. Room was only just finished and was done to a good standard. Single bed could have been better and room layout was a little odd. owner recommended an excellent restaurant within walking distance. I was away before breakfast would be served but the owner left me access to the dinning room where I was able to help myself to cereal and fruit. Would stop again if in area.
