Stayed at the Huntingdon from the reviews on trip advisor and was not disappointed. Beautiful house,exceptionally clean. The rooms were really nice and gave a homely feeling that make you feel comfortable. Not to mention the free parking at the location. And a extremely friendly atmosphere, and my personal favorite the bar for a nice drink or two. This was my first trip out of the US and I was very pleased with my overall stay at Huntingdon and highly recommend this bed and breakfast as a must stay location in Dumfries, Scotland!!!

A warm welcome (as usual) by Terry and Lynne and a most enjoyable week spent at this hotel.
We were given the rooms requested, as per the booking, and were of the same high standard experienced during past stays. Excellent food and service and we hope to return for another holiday in this part of Scotland and stay yet again at the Huntingdon House Hotel.

We spent one night at this hotel (really a B & B) as no food was provided in the evening. Very comfortable and quiet room. Plenty of lights and mirrors with an ironing board and iron, tea and coffee and biscuits and sweets, and a hair drier. Big walk in shower and plenty toiletries. This was a superior double room. Completed a breakfast form at night to choose what we wanted and suitable time, so food was freshly cooked. The bar was available till 11pm and Terry, the owner, served us drinks in a comfortable atmosphere. Suggestions were made as to where to eat in the evening and we went to the close by Station Hotel.

Room Tip: Dont know what standard double rooms are like but we had a superior double room which was excellent...

As all have said in the other reviews great place to stay although some of the rooms are a wee bit small, only let down was not being given a key to the front door, Terry said would wait up for us, not really what you expect from a hotel, and like having your Dad wait up for you.

We were a golfing party of 4 and no spring chickens so that seemed rather strange, what would have happened if we had went to a club (highly unlikely as we need our cocoa before bed) and got home after midnight!!

Just made us feel a bit uncomfortable.
