Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The staff is one of the most helpful and friendly I have ever encountered in the world. There is so much to see and learn about Dumfries and the surrounding area! Their gift shift has won me rave reviews for the Scottish presents I have sent to people from here (the scarfs and broch sets are spectactular and reasonably priced). You must come and visit if you are anywhere near here.

We had a look in to see what other castles/sites we could visit and the young lady was very informative. It's a really nice inside the Information Centre and worth a look

As we are visiting the area, during the school holidays, it seemed sensible to plan a visit to the local tourist office. Unfortunately, it was closed - on a Monday afternoon - with no information on when it will reopen.

I assume that Covid is the reason, but given that a lot of shops in the town are open it seemed a bit poor that this was not.

Although it is on the Whitesands, it is well set back and in need of better signage.
Nice souvenirs but staff were too busy with gossip to have time to deal with tourists.
Very little local information, it is just a shop.

Very knowledgeable & helpful. Easy to find down by the river Nith.
Fancy a drink? Pop into the nearby Victoria Arms. Cheap as chips & good to boot.

Just off the main street, close to the bus station. Well stocked with lots of information on local and Scottish events, with a small shop, gallery as well as toilets. Helpful staff. Lovely little gardens just outside the centre which are a real sun trap.

On a recent trip to Dumfries, I visited the tourists information centre and was impressed by the friendly and approachable way the staff dealt with my request for information. also, great to see that parking is fre in Dumfries, more councils should consider this to get people to visit.
