I have stayed here a number of times, and will continue to do so. Great hosts, great rooms, excellent breakfast, (even at the ungodly hour of 7 in the morning !!).
Convenient location near to town, with the advantage of large car park - handy with a trailer on !
Terry and Lynne go out of their way to make your stay a pleasure, and couldnt be more helpful.

Stayed here on our trip up north to Scotland and on the way back. Hosts Terry and Lynne made our stay perfect. room and breakfast was brilliant as they was 4 of us on motor bikes and the fact the hosts are bikers the advice and routes given made our planning easier. Would recommend this place for anyone to stay. Would not hesitate in staying here again. Kev Karl, Graham and Steve from Hull

It was a bit of a last minute decision to visit Dumfries and it was a case of Lucky Dip that we stayed here. But it was an excellent choice.
The hotel is close to the centre and train station but also has plenty of car parking available.
The owners were very welcoming and their passion for hospitality shone through. We were given some good local knowledge of places to visit in the area
The rom was spacious, well furnished and immaculately clean. Breakfast was well provided and I can particularly recommend the genuine Scottish porridge
The hotel is quite small, only about 8 rooms but that allows the owners to give good attention to all the guests. As guest, you are never just a number and are always given excellent customer attention.
Cannot fault this hotel.

We stayed for one night as we were attending a wedding reception at Mabie House Hotel about 8 miles away.What a great find. We received a very warm welcome, lot's of really useful information to help us get around the area, and nothing was to much trouble. The hotel and the room were very well appointed , very clean and beautifully kept. We had a delicious cooked breakfast, lot's of choice. Overall this is a great place to stay, great value and lovely hosts.if we're in the area again we would definitely stay here.

Room Tip: Stayed in room2, lovely room at the front, had en suit and bathroom with shower,separate cloak room...

We stayed for 1 night to break up our long trip from the Midlands to Oban and chose this B & B based on the good reviews. We weren't disappointed as the place was lovely and clean and cosy. We were warmly welcomed by the owners and shown to our room which had a large bed and a huge en-suite, with fluffy white robes and towels. Breakfast was home made porridge, toast, tea and full cooked english if you wanted it. The B & B has a large front car park but it is on an incline and be wary of parking under the trees to one side of the car park as our car was covered in bird droppings in the morning ! The location is very close to Dumfries town centre which you can walk into within 5 -10 minutes. All in all an excellent choice to stay at because the owners make you feel welcomed and provide those little extra touches.

Room Tip: we had room 5 which is big.

It was very relaxing to stay at this hotel and explore Dumfries from there. The owner couple is very friendly and gives very good recommendations. Lovely people. My room was spacious and very quiet. The breakfast was good. (fill in the form the evening before). There is a good chinese restaurant within ten minutes walk, and an excellent italian 12 minutes away.
