“Good Hotel in Dumfries”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2012

.Just returned from a very comfortable stay at the Huntingdon hotel. Stayed 3 nights touring the lovely countryside of Dumfries and Galloway, and attending the Fringe in Edinburgh. Its 20 odd years since I stayed in Dumfries, and found that the actual town has been really badly hit by the recession.
The proprietor of the hotel, Terry, is a fun and knowledgable guide to the area, with some wicked stories, including Gold panning and Bulgarian arm wrestling dentists (up to you if you believe them or not!).
Breakfast is ordered the previous night using a requirement sheet (that seemed odd), but certainly worked well. Good English(Scottish) breakfast including various cereals, dried fruit, and fresh fruits and Yoghurts.
We had room 5, that was fairly large, with a nice big bathroom. Slightly questionable electric shower, but over all very nice.
When we return to the area next year, we will return to the Huntingdon.

Stayed August 2012, travelled as a couple

The hotel was spotlessly clean, easy to find, convenient to the town centre and surrounding countryside. The welcome was simply fantastic, we got stuck in traffic and didn't get there until really late but this wasn't an issue. I couldn't praise the service and hotel enough. Breakfast was great and nothing was too much trouble. Nothing at all to complain about and would definitely return and recommend to anyone wanting to stay in Dumfries.

We took an 8 year old with us and they made her feel equally welcome.

Room Tip: The triple room we stayed in was lovely and quiet.

We have just stayed for a week at this hotel and it was like home from home. We had a wonderful time and were treated more like a member of the family. The hotel was absolutely spotless and well maintained nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was excellent and we never had to wait more than a couple of minutes. Just a shame they don,t run a chain so I could use them all over the country. Fantastic service.

Just returned from my annual golf trip to Scotland and our second stay at the Huntingdon. Once again the standards are second to none. Everything is top notch and the service provided by Terry & Lynne was outstanding as always. Food is excellent, the rooms are spotlessly clean and comfortable, and Terry keeps a good pint of beer too! A big thank you this time to Lynnes parents, David & Jean who were looking after the place for a couple of days whilst Terry & Lynne visited their daughter. They both provided the same high standards of service and looked after us admiribly. We have already booked our rooms for next year and would highly reccomend that anyone visiting the area stays here.

As soon as we arrived at the Huntingdon Hotel we were amazed at the excellent level of customer service, there was nothing that couldnt have been done for us and the rooms felt Just like home. Everything was neat, tidy, and organized and shops and local amenities were only a few steps away. This is an excellent place to stay and I shall be' recommending this hotel to any friends or family that are thinking of visiting scotland.
