“Superb accommodation”
Reviewed 24 June 2012

Superb accommodation (B&B) in a fabulous setting on the Dumfries House Estate. Lovely, comfortable, tastefully decorated rooms. Mark, running the B&B was great (is great!) helpful, informative and served up truly scrumptious breakfasts, with your selection from the menu. Five stars rating as far as we're concerned.

I only had a night in this excellent new Lodge but will definitely return for a proper visit. The standard of the restoration/renovation that's been done at Dumfries House Lodge is extremely impressive. I stayed in a four poster bed in a well sized room. Adjoining the room was a huge bathroom with roll top bath tub, two basins and views across the Estate. We had to leave early to get to Glasgow Station but the manager kindly put on an early breakfast for us and was charming. I would be very happy to recommend Dumfries House Lodge.

We had a 2 night stay in this quiet and relaxing country lodge. Mark and staff gave us 100% nothing was to much trouble and the lodge itself exceded our expectations. We stayed in room 3 with a four posterbed and had 2 wonderful nights sleep . The attached en - suite is amazing. The breakfast both mornings was cooked to order. The lodge is immaculately clean and fresh and the lounge has large soft sofa's you can sink into and relax. We went on the tour of Dumfries House which was very interesting, the guide was obviously very knowledgable. All together a very pleasant stay and one that we hope to repeat in the near future.

Stayed at Dumfries House Lodge for the weekend and it was great! The service was 100% and congratulations to Mark Robson for making our stay very relaxed and welcome. Perfect food and surroundings - the place has been furnished beautifully and in keeping with the building.
We will definitely be staying again and have already spread the word to friends and family - don't want too many people knowing though :)

Room Tip: All the rooms are great and so are the sitting rooms. Very relaxing place and quiet.

My partner and I and a friend spent two nights here after seeing the TV programme on Dumfries House. The Dumfries House estate is still a work in progress as are the grounds of the Lodge, however, it took nothing away from our stay there. We loved the Lodge. It's beautifully furnished in a country house style and the room we were in (bedroom 3) was quite stunning with a bathroom your could live in. There are two different lounges for guests, a larger one plus a more intimate snug with a log fire.

Breakfast is an intimate affair (there are only 6 rooms) and takes place in a beautiful dining room with full view of the kitchen so you can talk to Mark (the manager) while he cooks your breakfast. The breakfast is delicious and sets you up for the day for sure.

Dumfries House itself was fantastic and only a short walk from the Lodge as is the Stables restuarant where we had dinner on the first night (also lovely and a unique setting as you sit in individual stables!). The Lodge is a great base to see other impressive landmarks such as Culzean Castle and Dumlanrig Castle.

We have already said we would like to go back next year to see the House again and stay at the Lodge (probably for a few more days this time). A truly excellent stay.

Room Tip: Room 3 for the four poster which came from Dumfries House.
