Quite the most comfortable B&B we have visited and a breakfast to die for! It just proves that when setting up such a business, demanding high quality from the bathroom fittings to the breakfast cutlery is money well spent; providing that the warmth and understated hospitality that make one feel so welcome are also in evidence as is the case here.
We stayed in room 3, which is especially comfortable, as others have said, The bathroom is a real experience from the free standing bath to Thomas Crapper's WC, but make sure your shaver is charged, as a last minute change of the antique mirror covered up the planned shaver point. I'm sure this will be put right in due course.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Dumfries House Lodge was officially opened by HRH The Duke of Rothesay, Prince Charles on 4th April 2012. Sitting on the edge of 2,000 acres of the Dumfries House estate and only a few hundred metres from Dumfries House itself, Dumfries House Lodge is an exclusive country Guest House offering luxury accommodation. Built in 1750 and in use a few years prior to the completion of Dumfries House, the ‘Garden Cottage’ as it was known in the 18th century, became the Factor’s house and remained so for over 200 years. We encourage our guests to think of their stay as a home-from-home and to make good use of our facilities during their stay. ... more less
