We were very well looked after by Terry and Lynne Hawkins who made a real effort to ensure we enjoyed our stay with them.
We had one of their smaller twin ensuite rooms; clean and fresh, with comfortable beds.

Room was clean and good quality, service was great giving support to help us on our journey north. Wifi good signal which is necessary when travelling. The guesthouse itself had plenty of space so you don't feel intimidated or 'in the way'. Great refreshing experience.

Not only were Terry and Lynn incredibly hospitable, but their knowledge of Dumfries and surrounds greatly assisted me in my family history field research. The hotel is quaint and comfortable and should l find myself in this part of the world again l wouldn't think twice about staying at Huntingdon House again.

My mom and I were travelling around the UK and happened on this charming guest house/hotel. The entire experience was fantastic. A very warm welcome by the owners whose love for their town is unmistakeable. They gave us fantastic recommendations on local restaurants, tourist attractions and even the does and don'ts of the rest of our trip through Scotland. Our luggage was carried up and the room was comfortable, spacious enough and quiet. The place was absolutely spotless. Breakfast was delicious and the check out super easy. I highly recommend staying here. It completely made our trip to Dumfries unforgettable.

Room Tip: It's a small hotel, but they will accommodate as best they can.

We stopped off in Dumfries to visit family who live in one of the surrounding villages and couldn't have picked a better hotel, friendly, clean, good facilities and a very tasty breakfast.
Well done to Terry & Lynne, we will happily recommend your lovely hotel.

We wanted a long weekend in Dumfries to do some local touring and found the Huntingdon House by internet search. Owners Terry and Lynne run a spotless, comfortable and hospitable guest house which we could not fault. Very happy to go back and we look forward to the opportunity.

Room Tip: Only looked at the room we used, which was side facing, so can't make comparisons, although if t...
