I have pleasure in writing this review as we thoroughly enjoyed our stay last weekend. The rooms are of the standard one would normally find in a top star hotel (including a power shower!) and the breakfast the best I have had in a B&B and in fact I would go so far to say that I enjoyed it more than what most 5* hotels produce - a good choice of menu too - though I do highly recommend the smoked salmon with scrambled eggs as they were cooked to perfection! Unfortunately the Library was full so we were unable to try that for dinner but enjoyed one in a restaurant a short drive away. Dumfries House Lodge is a real gem sitting in a beautiful location in the Scottish Countryside and I cannot recommend it highly enough - well worth a visit! (Dumfries House itself is also worth visiting - beautifully restored to its former glory with excellent guides)

Thank you for the kind review, its good to read that you have enjoyed your stay and thank you for the very kind comments about the breakfast. I am a great believer in starting the day off right and for me that starts with a good hearty breakfast. We hope to see you again in the future Mark and the team here at the lodge.

Booked 3 rooms for our "gathering of friends" and not disappointed. A truly warm welcome to the lodge where all rooms are spacious, tastefully decorated and equipped to the highest standard. The lodge includes two separate guest lounges where we were able to enjoy both pre and post dinner drinks and conversation - very private and homely. We were amongst the last diners to enjoy the pleasure of eating in the library room in the main house (from today, with the exception of private dining groups of 10 or more, the restaurant relocates to the impressive new chef school in the grounds), where we enjoyed a very pleasant meal. A good variety of dishes on the menu, all of which proved to be beautifully prepared and presented. In the morning we enjoyed a leisurely breakfast, prepared to order by the resident team in the lodge and including just about everything one could ever think of. Our second day was rounded off with a tour of Dumfries house itself with an experienced, knowledgeable guide. Of all the hotels I've stayed in, this is undoubtedly a cut above the rest. What more can I say?

We had a family gathering in the Library Dining room in Dumfries House and then a group of us stayed overnight at the Lodge. Perfect finish to a fabulous day. The staff could not do enough for us, rooms were very comfortable and excellent breakfast cooked to order. Only slight problem was pregnant daughter had problems getting in to the 4 poster bed. Her husband had to give her a hand up.House is well worth a visit as well.

Room Tip: Room 3 is the 4 poster and room 4 has a huge bathroom.

This was worth every cent and more. It would be easy to say that the reviews for this accommodation is due to its Royal connection but to do so would be to do this accommodation and its hard working and friendly staff a major injustice and wrong.

The breakfast was the most warm and accommodating we have had in a B & B for a long, long time.

The rooms and breakfast deserve the very high ratings they receive. I would not hesitate to come back.

Also recommended is the tour of Dumfries House and its amazing Chippendale furniture.

Just had an excellent weekend at the Dumfries House Lodge. We were looked after by Mark, and nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was amazing and cooked to order. I recommend a tour round Dumfries House as part of the experience, it is really lovely.
