Booked the Rivendell Guest house in dumfries because of two hospital visits ,thought we would have a nice night away In a lovely room with a four poster bed .Wrong , we arrived about 3.15 because we knew we couldn't check in till after 3 only to find the door locked and a note saying to phone as the owner wasn't present .Luckily there was another couple in there who let us in ,and told us the owner was on a school run not long after he turned up and apologised .Then it turned out the other couple were in the wrong room ,our room so he sorted that out ,and then proceeded to say he had to go out again and off he went not to be seen again .The room was a disappointment four poster bed yes but it was quite a dreary room with dirty windows I made us a cup of tea and had to use up all the milk there was four of those silly little cartons .So later I went in search for someone ,anyone for more milk no chance the place was deserted .So gave up I'm really not impressed with paying £78.00 for this room it was only worth. About £40.00 cheap kettle hardly any toiletries and the lovely four poster was hard ,in the end we consoled our self by going out to lovely restaurant nearby called Little Italy which was fantastic .Surprise surprise in the morning there was staff who were friendly helpful and served us a lovely breakfast ,to add insult to injury a big tree came crashing down whilst we were having breakfast missing our car by about four feet (of course that was not the rivendell s fault ) so all in all we can honestly say we have never stayed anywhere like it take our advice don't bother
