“A pleasant enough stay but no en-suite”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2009

We booked rather late for the late May bank holiday weekend and ended up with the one room without the en-suite. It not ideal as we had to dash across the main entranceway to the house in order to access the bathroom, although there was a dressing gown thoughtfully provided.

The room however was large and well-appointed, with a massive flat-screen TV together with Sky to make up for the lack of en suite. There was a bit of noise though from the traffic and also guests stumbling back late after a night out.

Service was perfectly decent and the owner was apologetic about the lack of en-suite rooms. There was also a really nice garden with some kind of play area for children.

This is an excellent B&B on northern edge of Dumfries with easy road access without getting into the town.

Nice room with ensuite shower room (shower a bit tricky to control but not a problem). Quality feel to room & house. Nice breakfast. Pleasant hosts. Car parking.

Great value at £35 single occupancy of double room. I have no hesistation in recommending this place.
